Book review: Paper Towns (again)

Quentin Jacobsen has spent a lifetime loving the magnificently adventurous Margo Roth Spiegelman from afar. So when she cracks open a window and climbs into his life—dressed like a ninja and summoning him for an ingenious campaign of revenge—he follows. After their all-nighter ends, and a new day breaks, Q arrives at school to discover that Margo, always an enigma, has now become a mystery. But Q soon learns that there are clues—and they're for him. Urged down a disconnected path, the closer he gets, the less Q sees the girl he thought he knew...

    Hey guys. Some of you may have noticed that my Paper Towns book review got accidentally deleted. I was very upset about that, however, I just remembered that I had posted my review on another website! It's probably not exactly the same but I'm going to post it here anyways.

    I had really high expectations for this book because I’ve heard people think this is John Green’s best book. I disagree, I still like TFIOS way better. I gave it 3 out of 5 stars. I liked the characters, Quentin is my favourite character, however his obsession with Margo was annoying at times. I didn’t like Margo, she is definitely an interesting character with a strong personality, but I didn’t like her. The whole thing about her wanting to leave and all… I don’t know… I also don’t like Ben. His actions were extremely disgusting, disrespectful, annoying and not funny at all sometimes. Radar was okay, he was a good friend. Angela was super nice but she wasn’t really in the book, I hope we get to see her more in the movie. Lacey is my favourite! She is so cool and nice! I was not expecting to like her as much as I did.  
   I just don’t think this book was very interesting, the plot line was boring and there’s not even a lot of romance in it. The book is divided in three parts. Part three is my favourite, I loved it. The gas station scene is my favourite. Part one was kinda fun, but part two was incredibly boring and the bad thing is that it takes most part of the book.
   Also, they live in Orlando. I don’t know how people that live in Orlando really feel about living there, but I wish they had mentioned Disney World more. I mean… You freaking live in the city where freaking Disney is located! Isn’t that awesome?    There are some funny parts, and I recommend it because I’ve heard so many mixed reviews that it’s likely that your opinion will be different than mine. 

Well, here it is. I'm really happy that I found this! Comment below what's your favourite John Green book. Mine is TFIOS!
