Quentin Jacobsen has been in love with his effervescent neighbor Margo since as long as he can remember. When she disappears suddenly, he has no choice but to go on a wild goose chase after her. In short, that is what the plot of this book is. But this book is a lot more than the plot. John Green writes with his usual wit and the road trip the characters go on is hilarious. However, I didn't really feel the characters in this one were as real. I don't know why I felt this, but they seemed a bit flat at times and forgettable. I thought Margo was defiantly complex, but her relationship with Quentin was rather awkward and I ended up feeling sorry for both of them. Many people will disagree, but this wasn't my favorite John Green book.
