An Abundance of Katherines - A Review

This book took me a ridiculously long time to get to, partly because I didn't own it until about a week ago, I guess, partly because I simply didn't feel like reading John Green (how often does that happen, huh..)

When I read Paper Towns (after reading Looking for Alaska and The Fault in Our Stars) I was honestly a bit let down - but only because of my expectations after reading two novels I fell in love with. I felt the same with An Abundance of Katherines as I felt with Paper Towns.


"I don't think you can ever fill the empty space with the thing you lost. I don't think your missing pieces ever fit inside you again once they go missing."




I was happy to read the writing style of John Green. Personally, I think it is a very distinguishable one, and still one of the writing styles that never ever bore me. Although the storyline was terribly predictable, that is what life sometimes is, at least in your head. You imagine the best scenario of what could happen next - and sometimes it works out. I am glad I finally read this novel, and I enjoyed it quite a lot but I don't think I will be picking it up anytime soon. I will although put it on my shelf to complete my John Green collection. And perhaps one day, one day soon, I will go back to the story again.
