When it comes to relationships, Colin Singleton's type is girls named Katherine. And when it comes to girls named Katherine, Colin is always getting dumped. Nineteen times, to be exact.
On a road trip miles from home, this anagram-happy, washed-up child prodigy has 10,000 dollars in his pocket, a bloodthirsty feral hog on his trail, and an overweight Judge Judy-loving best friend riding shotgun - but no Katherines. Colin is on a mission to prove The Theorem of Underlying Katherine Predictability, which he hopes will predict the future of any relationship, avenge Dumpees everywhere, and finally win him the girl.
Love, friendship, and a dead Austro-Hungarian archduke add up to surprising and heart-changing conclusions in this ingeniously layered comic novel about reinventing oneself.
From the New York Times best-selling author of The Fault in Our Stars and Looking for Alaska, John Green. John has a huge online presence through his 1.1 million Twitter followers and YouTube channel Vlogbrothers, which has been viewed over 200 million times and has 660,000 subscribers, making it one of the most successful online channels in history.

The performance kept me going...
Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
I would not recommend this to all friends, the story is quite dryly told. My other physicist friends may well appreciate it and any other people who enjoy irony. Not for those who are uninterested in random facts.
What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)
I enjoyed the ending, although it felt a little predictable.
What does Jeff Woodman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
I enjoyed his tones of voice, it was very clear who he was being at every moment.
Could you see An Abundance of Katherines being made into a movie or a TV series? Who would the stars be?
No, not really. The stars wouldn't be people I have heard of...
