Book Review - Paper Towns by John Green

Paper Towns by John Green

Goodreads summary: Quentin Jacobsen has spent a lifetime loving the magnificently adventurous Margo Roth Spiegelman from afar. So when she cracks open a window and climbs back 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 of the girl he thought he knew.

In my opinion, I did not find this book as good as I expected it to be. This novel has a lot of hype but I am not sure why, thats just in my opinion though. 
I think the story line is a little too repetitive and gets boring after a while.

Lets talk about the main characters,
Quentin also known as Q, is a little more on the sensitive side, I think he is a down to earth boy and I think his character has grown to be stronger throughout the book.
Now theres Margo, I actually very much dislike her as a character. In my opinion Margo acts stuck-up and bitchy, she doesn't really care how people feel around her and she makes everything about herself. Margo is definitaly not one of my favorite characters.

Overall I think this book is okay but could be better.
Just remember that this review is all in my opinion, and by all means have a go reading this book yourself! Who knows, you may enjoy it! :)
