An Abundance of Katherines by (again...) John Green

So, in my head, there's like thirty people rolling their eyes at me for reviewing so many John Green books at the same time. There might be some of you out there literally rolling your eyes at me, too, but I promise that this is the last for a little while. I've been craving some fantasy, dystopian, and horror. I picked up The Forest of Hands and Teeth today, expect a review soon. Anyways...

In Katherines, Colin Singleton has one type of girl: girls that are named Katherine. This sounds weird, but John Green has this epically awesome way of making weird things sound normal. I can't explain it. Anyways, after being dumped for the nineteenth time by a Katherine, he is depressed, so his friend, Hassan, takes him on a road trip, no destination in mind. Now, if you've read Paper Towns, you know that if you read a Green book with a road trip in it, you are in for a treat. I don't know, it just is exciting to me. Colin and Hassan come into a job, friendships, and romantic relationships along the way.
This is my least favorite John Green novel so far. I'm not saying it's bad, just that it's not as good as his others. It's still really good, though. The writing is humerous, while at times annoying (mostly when math is involved, it bothered me, but that isn't for very much of the book).
Anyways, despite some of the bad things I've said, you should still try this book. It's very good and witty, which is great, and there is excitement and romance involved.

Thank you for commenting. Also thank you for thinking of me, but please do not give any awards that require passing on to other blogs. I simply do not have the time.
