When Margo Roth Spiegelman beckons Quentin Jacobsen in the middle of the night—dressed like a ninja and plotting an ingenious campaign of revenge—he follows her. Margo’s always planned extravagantly, and, until now, she’s always planned solo. After a lifetime of loving Margo from afar, things are finally looking up for Q . . . until day breaks and she has vanished. Always an enigma, Margo has now become a mystery. But there are clues. And they’re for Q.
A couple years ago I tried an audiobook on a commute to school and just couldn’t get into it. I decided that I just didn’t have the attention span for audiobooks and wrote them out.
I decided to give the Paper Towns audiobook a try via audible and am now changing my stance on audiobooks.
First, the narrator did an amazing job of exhibiting the emotions, thoughts, and personalities of each character. I didn’t really like Radar’s southern accent, but I hate most southern accents that I hear on tv and movies, so it was bound to happen.
The story—that story. I needed to know what happened next. I have a 45 minute-hour drive to and from work and I’d always find myself wanting to stay in the car and keep listening. John Green has a way of making sure that I’m drawn into his books and can’t put them down.
However, I have one complaint—I just felt like it was missing something at the end. With that said, I’d rate Paper Towns at maybe a 3.5/5. It was still good and many people might not have a problem with the ending like I did. The ending wasn’t terrible—I just felt like I was missing a chapter was all.
