Book Review: An Abundance of Katherines



An Abundance of Katherines by John Green

Loved, loved, LOVED this book!

I was totally won over by Green's first YA novel, Looking for Alaska, so I was eager to get my hands on his follow up YA novel, and it did not disappoint!

I loved the premise, the writing, the characters (particularly the best friend Hassan!), the setting, and the fact that this book made me laugh OUT LOUD repeatedly - the sign of a great story.

Colin and Hassan have graduated high school and decide to take a road trip to help Colin forget about the 19th Katherine that has dumped him (seriously). What follows is a small town, a new job, a wild boar, a pretty girl and a lot of anagrams.

And an appendix full of theorems. ;-)

I tore through this novel, and I just loved it - highly recommended!

Marissa, I just finished this a few days ago myself and I have to agree with you on every point. What a terrific book! You may know that we in the ALLA awarded John Green with the best in YA fiction last year - although that pales in comparison to winning the Printz! Once again, he has a book that's at the top of the list.
