Paper towns by john green – Book review

Paper Towns is a young adult novel written by John Green. The book was published in October 2008 by Dutton Juvenile, an imprint of Penguin Group USA. The novel is about a teenager named Quentin Jacobsen and his adventures with his childhood friend, Margo Roth Spiegelman.

The story takes place in Orlando, Florida, and follows Quentin and Margo as they investigate the mysterious disappearance of Margo’s friend, Ben Starling. The novel is set in the summer, and the events take place over a few days.

Paper Towns was well-received by critics, who praised Green’s use of humor and his ability to create believable characters. The book was a commercial success, debuting at number five on the New York Times Best Seller list. Paper Towns was adapted into a film of the same name and released in 2015.

Paper Towns is a coming-of-age novel that deals with friendship, love, loss, and self-discovery themes. Green said the book is about

the real world and how confusing and often unsatisfying it can be.

He has also said he wanted to write a novel that captured the experience of being a teenager.

Paper Towns is an enjoyable read that will appeal to fans of John Green’s other work and readers looking for a coming-of-age story with believably complex characters.


              “The town was paper, but the memories were not.”
