Paper Towns Review
I read the book two years ago. Staying at the hospital, I finished it in one sitting.
It was such a joy read. With enchanting ending that it leaves a lot with you.
Margo and Q, both are lovable characters.
I am not going to do any long review, but it is the first book in which I read that some times hero don’t get girl.
And that does not make him lesser than any hero.
Hero do hard things, and for Q, leaving Margo was the hardest he ever did. And he do that.
On the other hand, it really feels odd when the book ends. I think it is case with all the good books.
Paper Towns is similar to many stories, until it throws away the template at the last moment of closure. It is so different, yet so relevant.
Because, more than ever, a person chase another person, and the other person do not respond greatly. It ends in heartbreak.
But the fiction has made us believe that if you chase the girl enough, you may get her.
John Green do break that notion, while making it clear that there is nothing embarrassing in choosing your dreams over a person.
As the booksmugglers put it:
He(Q) is a Hero in a Quest and it doesn’t matter if he finds what he is looking for, the Quest itself is what is important and in that sense, the bittersweet ending is absolutely perfection because Quentin has utterly and completely found…himself, even if he wasn’t even lost to start with
So, I do recommend this book highly to everyone.
Margo Roth Quote – Must Read
Maybe its like you said before, all of us being cracked open. Like each of us starts out as a watertight vessel. And then things happen – these people leave us, or don’t love us, or don’t get us, or we don’t get them, and we lose and fail and hurt one another. And the vessel starts to crack in places. And I mean, yeah once the vessel cracks open, the end becomes inevitable. Once it starts to rain inside the Osprey, it will never be remodeled.
But there is all this time between when the cracks start to open up and when we finally fall apart. And its only that time that we see one another, because we see out of ourselves through our cracks and into others through theirs. When did we see each other face to face? Not until you saw into my cracks and I saw into yours. Before that we were just looking at ideas of each other, like looking at your window shade, but never seeing inside. But once the vessel cracks, the light can get in. The light can get out.
