Personal Review

I thought the book was okay honestly i thought the end was going to be different i thought that Margo and Quentin were going to end up together. I would've honestly preferred for it to end like that because Quentin went through so much just for her no to come back with them. I liked the mysterious part of the book but i mean its not really my type of book the fault in our stars was a much better book. I think that the people that would enjoy this book are the people who are into romance novels but also like mystery books. The book also has a bit of suspense because the reader (I) didn't know where the clues were going to lead i mean she could've been anywhere. Like we didn't know if Margo was okay or not . We also didn't know why she left at the beginning that was until the final chapter and they found her. In my opinion the book was fine i think people who like the suspense and the romantic mysteries would like this book.

The third photo shows how Margo wanted to be independent so that's why she left. The forth photo shows how they were in high school. The fifth photo represents when Margo and Quentin did the 11 tasks before she ran away.

“That's always seemed so ridiculous to me, that people want to be around someone because they're pretty. It's like picking your breakfeast cereals based on color instead of taste.”― John Green, Paper Towns
