The really enjoyed the way this book was split into 3 different parts: Part 1 is a variety of pranks in chapter form; Part 2 is a mystery and involves finding clues; and Part 3 was a race against time, a chapter for every hour of the journey. I felt part 2 could have been shortened as this was the least enjoyable part of the book for me however aspects of it were very important to the story so I understand it’s slowness and concentrate on certain elements when reaching the end.
As for characters, I wasn't sold on Quentin or Margo the two main character at all. I did however love Quentin’s friends, Ben and Radar.
Overall Paper Towns was another witty and enjoyable read from John Green and I now have Looking for Alaska queued up on my Kindle to read soon. Green just has a way of writing that makes my dislike for contemporaries melt away.
