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 Q gets, the less Q sees the girl he thought he knew.

  1. This was such a beautiful story. Its filled with so much mystery, but also alot of love and joy which is why I loved it so much. There was always something intresting about to happen, which kept me on my toes and I couldn’t stop reading. I love how unexpcted the love story is and the many lessons we can learn from this book.

    I loved Paper Towns. Quentin Jacobsen and his long time crush Margo Roth Spiegelman go on a series of adventures together. But shortly after Margo’s had enough, and disappears from the small neighbourhood. Nothing out of the ordinary for Margo, running away, but time passes and Q gets worried. I loved reading about Q, he has such an awkward personality, but he is so kind a very caring. I loved the thrill in this book, I really enjoyed reading through the mysteries and gossip. I definitely recommend this book to other teenagers, it has a very strong message and good moral. I give it an 9/10.

  5. This is one of my favourite books that I have ever read because it is so relatable and engaging. Margo is so desperate for adventure and also pushing boundaries, whilst Quentin is very content living his simple and routine life. Their relationship is really interesting because they are such opposites yet somehow match so perfectly. They teach each other a lot about themselves and the world around them. I also liked the novel because to me, Quentin represents safety and also mirrors a majority of the youths population. Whilst Margo exhibited a certain degree of danger and adventure, which I think are qualities people wish they had more of. I would definitely recommend the book to everyone as the messages and themes throughout the book are truly amazing.

  7. I read ‘Paper Towns’ by John Green a while ago. I remember the book very well. It dives into Quentin who’s admiration for Margo grows into love. They spend time together and then Margo disappears. Quentin soon realises that she had left clues for him but he soon realises that Margo is not who he had thought. This book made me feel anxious, always wanting to know what happens next. This book is a rollercoaster and is great. I really enjoyed this book and I would give this book a 9 out of 10 and I would recommend this to everyone because it is a great novel.

  9. I absolutely loved this book!!!! I really enjoyed this book because it’s really funny, a bit romantic and kind of adventurous when he is trying to find to find Margo. I also really liked it because it taught me to have more fun and instead of thinking about the future, to think about the present instead of worrying what might happen. I would recommend this book to anybody who likes a mystery story as well as anybody who particularly likes to read John Greens novels! I would recommend this to readers who are about 15, 16+ seeing as it’s about life at high school, among many other themes. The ending was so unpredictable and I loved every minute of it!

    Paper Towns is a fantastic book. I have read it so many times and I never lose interest in it. I love the mystery, comedy and romance of it. I wasn’t sure what to expect when I first got the book, but when I got into it, I couldn’t stop. I think it really portrays the message of ‘living boldly’ and ‘risk-taking’ for teenagers, in a good way. I love how Margo is an adventure seeker and lives boldly, and how Quentin lives a very simple and routinised life, yet somehow they get along really well and have fun together. I also like how Quentin stays in the ‘paper town’ even when he can’t find Margo. This shows he is so determined he was to find her. Even after all his friends had left him, he stayed because he knew she had to be there somewhere. I really like that about Q. I absolutely love how Margo keeps everyone guessing and wondering about where she could be. It would be so interesting and exciting. This book is amazing, and you can’t put it down! I would give it a solid 10/10. It’s sure worth the read.

  12. This book wasn’t what I expected but it also surprised me in many ways, and I also made me think, so clearly this wasn’t a journey without a return. Paper towns explores topics such as suicide where as children, Margo and Quentin find the body of a man who has killed himself. The man’s neighbor speculates it was because he was upset about his impending divorce. Quentin fears Margo is planning to kill herself when she goes missing. The book is good for adolescents because they may be able to relate to the characters in the book. I don’t want to spoil too much of the book but it is worth a read and John Green is an excellent author.

  13. Paper Towns was one of the funniest books I have come across in ages. There is ongoing snarky within the first two parts, mainly coming through Q’s reactions to the strange things Margo seems to have done. A lot of comic relief also comes through Ben, particularly when he is drunk. Despite this, in my opinion, the funniest part of the book was the road trip towards the end. I won’t spoil it, but it is crazily random and had me actually laughing out loud. Not only this, but the book almost has its own language of inside jokes: Black Santas, catfish and beer swords are all involved. Throughout most of the book, Margo is more of an idea than a character. Everybody has different memories of her, and so sees her differently. Q’s idea of Margo evolves through the story, and her character becomes steadily more complex. Even when we discover the real Margo, she is still one of the most complicated characters.The ending of this book will break your heart. It’s sad, but it feels right given the rest of the story. Everything is pulled together. I loved how the story flows in the right direction of your heart.I could go on and on about this book, but I’ll stop there. To conclude, Paper Towns is a remarkable and funny book with great characters. I would recommend it to fans of any other John Green book. But to be honest, I think anyone and everyone could gain something from reading this. 100% a 5 out of 5 stars!! A remarkable book that has a true sense of feelings.

  14. I absolutely loved reading Paper Town’s, it is definitely one of my favourite books. I really love it because it’s something a little bit different than other books by John Green and it was the first book I read from his with a little bit of a mystery. It’s all about this boy Quentin, or Q as he is referred to. Q is this dorky, shy guy who hangs around with the band geeks at school and isn’t very popular. So, Q has this massive crush and his neighbour Margo who is a popular girl at his school. She is very bold and confident, and always goes out partying. One night margo arrives at Q’s window and recruits him to help her play mischievous pranks on the friends who betrayed her. The next day, however, the mysterious Margo is nowhere to be found and it’s up to Q and his friends to solve the mystery using the clues Margo has left. This is such an incredible book, all throughout reading, you’re kept on your toes and you never know what’s going to happen.

My favourite character in the story is definitely Margo (Q’s love) as she is an outgoing, adventurous, prank filled girl who loves to have fun. This book covers lot’s of teenage experiences and problems such as friendship, family, relationship and trust so it an easy one to relate to aand it makes you feel like you are part of Margo’s journey as well. I rate this book a 10/10 it is written beautifully and I love how all the characters have very unique personalities. I would definitely recommend this book!

  16. Paper Towns is such an extraordinary read and is one of my favorite books. It kept me on my toes the whole time, and I kept guessing until the last page. My favorite character in this book is Margo, as I can relate to her willingness to ‘escape’ and do something crazy every once in a while. My favourite part is when Margo explains what paper towns mean and I think that this is a beautiful part of the book.

  17. Over the summer holidays, I read Paper Towns. This brilliant book is about the amazing story of Margo Roth Spiegelman and Quentin (aka Q) Jacobson. Its suspenseful, romantic and thrilling all in one. To sum up the story, Margo and Quentin go on a few little adventures, and all of a sudden, Margo is missing, soon after he finds out, Quentin begins to track her down through little hints that she’s left behind. Trust me, once you picked it up, your not going to be able to put it down, and once it’s finished, you’ll be wanting more! I personally loved it and would rate it a 9 out of 10. I would recommend year levels 7+, and maybe even primary school students. Its definitely a must read!

  18. I liked this book but I wouldn’t say it’s the best book I’ve ever read. It was a bit of a slow read but once it got into it it was very intriquing. It was written very well and had a great aspect of mystery to it. It was written in a very descriptive way that gave you a great understanding of each character. It left you unsure of what to expect next or how the book would end. I liked the way there was a twist at the end, however I wish the book had had a happier ending. I really liked the determination the protaganist Quentin shows as he did not give up on his search even when the odds where against his favour. I found this admirable as I think this is a great trait for someone to have in real life.

  19. This coming of age, adventure and romance book is definitely one of my favourites! Following the life of Quentin, his crush Margo and their string of friends and how they all embark on a road trip to find love, reconnect with others and form bonds that will last them well after they finish their schooling life. I loved the mysterious character of Margo, sneaking out at night, giving mixed messages to those closest to her, and leaving the town completely only to stay, turning down Quentin’s dreams. The setting and age of the characters really helps you to connect with them, as they too are in high school, with ever changing friendship circles. I would recommend this to people over the age of 13, and would rate t 10/10!

I found this book quite cryptic and was left unhappy with the ending as it was ‘unsatisfying’ being unsure of what happens next, however that can also be a good thing as it leaves readers open to their own interpretations.

  30. Paper Towns was an amazing read and a very mysterious book that kept me on the edge the whole time I was reading it. The story is quite a unique one which is what makes it great. My favourite character in the book is Margo, because she is very courageous and daring, I find this very aspiring because she doesn’t listen to anyone and does what she wants. She runs away from home, doesn’t care about grammar, and is curious about all the little things in life. My favourite part of the book is when Q gets all his friends together to go on a road trip to find Margo, I like these scenes because the trip seems like a lot of fun, and has a lot of humour in it. If I were to change something in this book it would to bring Angela (Radar’s Girlfriend) on the road trip, because she is mention in the book a few times and I would like to see how she interacts with everyone in the book. I would definitely recommend this book to others because John Green is an amazing author and everyone should experience the journey of reading on of his book. People would like this book if they mystery books. I rate this book 5/5.

  31. After reading The Fault in Our Stars and falling in love with the book, I had to make sure that I read more John Green books so I grabbed Paper Towns. It was a wonderful book to read filled with romance and adventure, so it is perfect for people who love John Green books and a that type of genre. I loved how Margo was like an Angel for Q because it relates to the way many boys feel about a girl they like and he had to try his best to talk to her and thats what happens a lot in high school. Then Margo turned up to Q’s house it was a big surprise as she wanted him to come with her to have revenge on her ex boyfriend. This is when we realize that Margo in fact was just like every other teenage girl but she likes bit of revenge too and this part of the book was very funny. After they make many memories together and do some rebellious stuff, the next morning Q realizes that she is missing and suddenly realizes that he must of lost her. Q and his friends go on a hunt to find her and she leaves little clues for them to discover. This part of the story makes an exciting thrill for readers but also sadness as Q is in love with a girl he has lost. This then leaves a mystery that you can’t find out till you have read the book. I would give this book an 8 out of 10 and one that people who love adventure and romance should read.

  33. Paper towns is an amazing and very mysterious book that I absolutely loved. It’s a story about a teenager boy named Quentin also known as Q by his friends. when he was little he was good friends with his neighbour Margo, which he secretly had a crush on they go on many different adventures together but as they grow older they seperate and barely talk anymore. Until one night Margo shows up at Q window and asks him if he wants to go on an adventure, he was unsure at first but of corse eventually agrees to go with her and ends up having one of the best nights of his life. The next day he notices Margo doesn’t show up at school but he doesn’t think much of it, then she doesn’t show up for the next day either but soon finds out that she has run away (which she has done before). Whenever she runs away she always leaves a very hard clue to find out where she is. Q goes to her house and asks if he could go in her room to find a clue he finds something that might be one and it connects to another and another and lot’s of mysteries are being solved. this book is a fun and mysterious book that is exciting to read and makes you not want to put it down, I would definitely recommend reading it!

    The book “Paper Towns” by John Green is probably one of my favourite books of all time. The story follows Quentin (aka Q) and his long time crush Margo Roth Spiegelman. Q and Margo were friends while they were younger but as friendships sometimes do, they drifted apart. Throughout school Margo didn’t really notice Q, until one night. This book show the lengths that some people would go to, to find someone that they truly love. My favourite part of this book would definitely be when Q and his friends go on the road trip to find Margo. My favourite character in this exciting book is Margo as she is very intriguing and mysterious. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes a good mystery and the age of 12+.

  46. I read the book and watched the movie Paper Towns written by John Green. I thought the movie was better than the book but I’m not sure if it was because i watched the movie first and Cara Delevingne played the main character in the movie. However the storyline was captivating and full of suspense. John Green is the same author who wrote ‘The Fault in our Stars’. If you enjoyed reading ‘The Fault in our Stars’ you will definitely enjoy reading Paper Towns. My favourite character was Margo Roth Spiegalman she loved mystery so much she became one. From the beginning of the book right to the end of the book, the author keeps you intrigued and wanting to know more about what’s happened to Margo and if they will ever find her. I rate this book and movie a 8 out of 10 because it was interesting from start to finish and i think most teenagers will enjoy it!!

Anyone who like to read mysteries, romance or adventure would differently love this book, but i would also like to recommend it to every one it was such a great book.

  52. Paper Towns is such an extraordinary read, I love it so much. I really love it because it’s something a little bit different than other books by John Green and it was the first book I read with a little bit of a mystery. It’s all about this boy Quentin, or Q as he is referred to. Q is this dorky, shy guy who hangs around with the band geeks at school and isn’t very popular. So, Q has this massive crush and his neighbour Margo, who unlike Q, is outgoing, wild and striking, she is popular at school and seems to live such a carefree life to Q. One night margo arrives at Q’s window and recruits him to help her play mischievous pranks on the friends who betrayed her. The next day, however, the mysterious Margo is nowhere to be found and it’s up to Q and his friends to solve the mystery using the clues Margo has left. This is such an incredible book, all throughout reading, you’re kept on your toes and you never know what’s going to happen. I rate this book a 10/10!

    In paper towns it’s a journey that takes place in a different environment then any other high school story. Margo is your average teenager. But her neighbour likes to live life on the safe side. She thinks that it would be a great adventure to basically send him running for her. They are friendly in school but on that late school night it could just change his life forever. From staying in school to breaking the rules in only just a few days. I would give this book 9/10 because it’s funny and the author John Green defiantly knows how to put life in a different perspective. I would recommend this book to anyone.

  55. This book is just fabulous!
    John Green has done a great job at making the characters personalities different from one another. I love this as Margot is such an outgoing, popular character but underneath she is really a beautiful soul that just wants to be herself. I love the way Quentin shows his love for Margot. My favourite part of the book is when Margot takes Quentin with her when she gets revenge on her friends. The things that they do are so cheeky but it makes me laugh as it is perfect revenge!
    The book is so mysterious with Margot disappearing. Quentin shows how much he loves Margot by going to look for her with all the clues he had gathered.
    Quentin stays in the paper town even when he can’t find Margot. This shows he is so passionate about finding her. Even after all his friends had left him, he stayed because he knew she had to be here somewhere.
    I think that John Green was really clever when Margot left the clues for Quentin, I love the places she his them and how it really made Quentin think when he was finding them.
    I recommend this book for anyone!!!!
    It’s so, so, so good!

  57. While reading this book I could not put it down. There was not a dull moment throughout the whole book. I absolutely loved this book and I bet you will too.The plot explores the repetitive and simple life of Quentin and the adventurous life of Margo- Roth- Spiegelman. Quentin goes on an adventure with Margo the night before she disappears. Margo leaves clues like breadcrumbs for Quentin, he is determine to find her and tell her how she really feels about her. If you loved The Fault In Our Stars and Looking For Alaska you will definitely love this and anyone you enjoys reading mysteries, romance and adventure this is the book for you. The book allows you to step into the their world and connect and relate to the characters. I would not change a thing about this book and I could not fault it. I would rate this novel 5/5 and would recommend it for anyone 12+ because the plot may be to complex and difficult to follow for younger children.

I love the way Margo just wants to be accepted, and how she wants to be the first ever Margo Roth Spiegleman. Quentin, and his friends, on the car trip was classic. I was crying with laughter.

  59. I really enjoyed the novel Paper Towns by John Green it was heart felt, retable and had you on the edge of each page. My favourite part was when Quentin was starting to discover who the real Margo.

    I absolutely loved this book!!!! I really enjoyed this book because it’s really funny, a bit romantic and kind of adventurous when he is trying to find to find Margo and I also really liked it because it taught me to have more fun and instead of thinking about the future think about now. My favourite character would definitely be Margo because she is kind of a rebel and cool kid on the outside but really she so much more than that I love that as you read the book you find out more about her. My least favourite character would be Margo’s parents because they want Margo to be a perfect little girl and they act like they don’t want anything to do with her. I would recommend this to people who love adventure and romance books. i rate this book a 10/10

  66. When I started reading Paper Towns I had no idea what it would be like but know that I have read it, I love it! It takes about 2 chapters to get the idea of who Quentin is and what his life is like but once that is clear the story is very intriguing. My favourite character is Margo Roth Spiegelman because she is funny, dark and has an interesting life story. I love how she leaves clues which make you think and try and solve the mystery yourself. If you like mysteries, comedies and romance then this is the book for you. I think this book would be better for 11+ because it can get confusing and can be hard to get your head around. I love how this book takes you on the journey with it. I can’t wait to see the movie and I think Cara Delevingne would suit her character very well. This book is great if your looking for one that lasts a bit longer.

    I greatly enjoyed this novel. I found it profound in ways that I don’t quite understand, yet, and I think it’s a book that definitely needs to be read a few times in order to fully understand Margo’s situation. I mostly loved trying to sort out along with Q, Ben, and Radar where Margo was hiding as they uncovered more clues to her whereabouts, and I admired their courage and determination (or rather, Q’s courage and determination) to find her again. And the early morning pranking with Margo and Q at the start of the novel was superbly mischievous, it was my favourite section of the book. I would recommend this to readers who are about 15, 16 years old and up, seeing as it’s about life at high school, among many other themes like our different ‘selves’, which makes it an enjoyable novel for adults too.

Margo is so desperate for adventure and pushing boundaries, whilst Quentin is content living his simple and routine life. Their relationship is really interesting because they are such opposites, and they teach each other a lot about themselves and the world. I also liked the novel because to me, Quentin represented safety, and mirrored a majority of the youth population. Whilst Margo exhibited a certain degree of danger and adventure, which I think are qualities people wish they had more of. I would definitely recommend the book to everyone as the messages and themes are amazing.

    Paper Towns is a really interesting book to read. It’s written so well that it’s complicated yet easy to read at the same time. I loved how real the book was, and how it could really happen. It was all happy and unrealistic and safe, it had real sadness in it. My favourite parts were: 1. Quentin and Margot’s first trip though the night, and 2. when Q and his friends were taking the road trip to find Margot. I love all the characters, their personalities are brought to life so well and you really feel like you know them. My favourite character is probably Ben because he’s so sweet and always means well. I was really disappointed when Margot reacted so unexpectedly near the end, but I again I like how it was realistic. I still felt annoyed with her and a bit frustrated. I definitely recommend this book to others, and I think it would be mostly enjoyed by girls or boys aged 13 and up – some parts are inappropriate for younger people, and some parts are upsetting or difficult to understand. I rate it 8.5/10.

    Right after reading this book I was excited to hear they would be making a movie of it especially when I had heard they had cast Cara Delevingne as Margo and Nat Wolff as Quentin. They really do suit their characters well. It is a really great novel about adventure and also mystery as they try to Margo before they graduate.
    One thing I really liked in the beginning was learning of the back story between Quentin and Margo which really helped paint the picture of what their characters would be like
    I will really have to re-read the book before the movie comes out this year.

    I wasn’t sure what I was expecting when I started to read paper towns, but I definitely didn’t expect what we got. Paper Towns involves two teenagers: Margo and Quentin, who have been friends ever since they moved in next to each other when they were kids. As most friends to the started to gradually move away from each other, in till Margo is in the popular group at high school and Quentin isn’t. But Margo isn’t you typical top dog. Margo loves mysteries, she likes to run away from home and leave clues to help her more then frustrated parents to find her. She likes mysteries so much that she became one, and it’s not in till one night when Margo asks Quentin to come with her to get up to no good that Quentin once again becomes interested in Margo’s world, and then, almost all at once she vanishes and she sends Quentin on a wild rabbit chase to try and find her. I highly recommend reading Paper Towns if you are a fan of John Greens work.

  81. Paper Towns is probably my favourite book at the moment. It’s full of adventure, mystery and humour. The main character, Quentin (aka Q), has had a long term crush on his dare – devil, cunning, beautiful neighbour, Margo. Margo and Q were friends when they were younger, and started drifting apart throughout school. Margo is the queen bee of the high school hive, always surrounded by friends, while Q hangs out with his nerdy friends from the school band. Q knew he never had a chance with Margo, but then one night she mysteriously appears at his window at midnight. She wants him to help her on a revenge scheme to get back at everyone who has ever done something wrong to her. For the rest of the night, Q is pulled into the exciting world of Margo Roth Spiegelam, and begins to believe that something between them is beginning to form. But the next day, Margo is missing. Nothing obvious of her where-a-bouts is left behind, except a series of strange clues. Join Q and his friends as they search frantically for Margo before they lose her for good. I rate this book 10/10 and recommend it to anyone 12+.

    Paper towns is one of the best books I’ve read all year. Once you pick up this book, it is no longer that novel that you wanted to read, but instead it is a story that unfolds like paper all around you. You can feel the presence of Q, the absence of Margo, join in the mystery and travel to Algoe all while sitting completely still in anticipation. John Green has outdone himself yet again with this beautiful story, so those who don’t read it, their loss.
