“I’m starting to realize that people lack good mirrors. It’s so hard for anyone to show us how we look, & so hard for us to show anyone how we feel.”
― John Green, Paper Towns

This book is now listed as one of my favorites. I was kinda surprised how John Green can easily make you laugh by his metaphors. He is a genius and to me, the story is twisted, exciting, and funny.

There’s a puzzle, a mystery to solve. And everytime you turn the pages, you get excited to see how resourceful the characters are and wonder how J.G was able to write it. He is generous enough to make me wander in the U.S while I was just sitting in my office table. I felt like I am part of the story. I felt involved and made me think of my own longing for an affair to the world.

This is different from his other famous books, The fault in our stars and Looking for Alaska. That is quite surprising. I mean, after TFIOS, I cried a river. Hell..oww..

The ending is not bad. But I was kind of sad. How fortunate ironies can happen.

And Margo is such a strong girl, She loves mystery so much that she became one.(borrowed line from the book)
