"I liked the book overall. I really loved the friendship dynamic between Radar, Ben, and Q, it was so cute and so loving. Wanna know who I didn’t like though? MARGO. I don’t know if that is unpopular or not but she is so incredibly self centered and selfish that it made me mad. She leaves clues then claims she doesn’t want people to find her and got mad when they did. She acts like the victim by saying things like “that’s not the Margo Roth Speigelman everyone likes.” Like oh my lordddd. Regardless, interesting ending and im glad she wasn’t dead"
"this is and may forever be my favorite john green book. funnily enough when i was younger i hated it for the ending, but now i love it for that very same reason. the guy doesn’t get the girl, the girl never wanted to be found in the first place. she was just a girl. and q used her as his entire reason for being. he became obsessed with trying to find her and bring her home, when home was the worst place possible for her and she never wanted to go back. paper towns, not unlike the rest of green’s books does not end happily, but this one specifically resonated with me because of the fact that margo stood up for what she wanted and did the damn thing.

"Love love loved it"
"I’m typically not a fan of John Green, but this book is an exception for me. The plot is intriguing and the male characters are interesting and multi-faceted. The love interest is still written to be the typical John Green woman, which is not the most realistic or relatable, but the other aspects of the book make up for it. "
