Publisher's 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.
Printz medalist John Green returns with the brilliant wit and searing emotional honesty that have inspired a new generation of listeners.

Difficult to finish.

I don't enjoy being negative but this story took alot to get through.
Firstly, I didn't mind the character of Q as I could sympathise with the almost pathetic adoration of somebody when a teenager. However, it was the character he adored that I found so unbearable.
I don't really see Margot as the free spirited, self-seeking girl that I think the author intended, to be honest I just see her as an incredibly selfish, manipulative megalomaniac. Unfortunately this made the story such a struggle, as his whole quest to find her left me frustrated with him, and their friends, for not seeing that they were essentially doing exactly what such a narcissistic person wanted.
Perhaps no longer being a teenager means the quirky teen angst is somewhat lost on me, but I actually hope not as I'd hate to think teenagers who are reading this think that it's acceptable to act the way she did.
On a more positive note, I thought the narrative was fine and rather well acted. I would listen to other stories read Dan John Miller.
I would also like to add that I have read other John Green books, The Fault in Our Stars and An Abundance of Katherines (which is an excellent, charming read), and I will read more by him, in the hope that Paper Towns is just a dud.
