An Abundance of Katherines: Review
Oh, it feels so great to read all day long!! I finished rereadingAn Abundance of Katherinesby John Green today so I decided to write a review since I read it before I started this blog. :) enjoy
“When it comes to relationships, Colin Singleton’s type happens to be girls named Katherine. And when it comes to girls named Katherine, Colin is always getting dumped. Nineteen times, to be exact. He’s also a washed-up child prodigy with ten thousand dollars in his pocket, a passion for anagrams, and an overweight, Judge Judy-obsessed best friend. Colin’s on a mission to prove The Theorem of Underlying Katherine Predictability, which will predict the future of all relationships, transform him from a fading prodigy into a true genius, and finally win him the girl. Letting expectations go and allowing love in are at the heart of Colin’s hilarious quest to find his missing piece and avenge dumpees everywhere.”
Now to review:
I liked the book the first time I read it, but I always thought that the main character, Colin Singleton, was a bit dramatic. I understand that he has been dumped a lot; I just feel that it is his own fault. As a reread it I felt more and more annoyed with Colin. I guess since I’m older and have had more experience in the dating department than when I first read this book. I think that he is too self-obsessed or mature to even think about dating; but that is only my personal opinion and really has nothing to do with the book as a whole. I kept getting more and more upset and then I slowly realize that there is more to the book that I definitely did not get the first time I read it. As I read, bits of Colin’s story remind me of my own relationships in the past and I could understand him more.
What I especially liked about this book was how real Colin and all of the rest of the characters felt. They all have very relatable personalities that drew you in. I have to say this is not my favorite John Green book, that would have to be The Fault in Our Stars, but it is a very good book!
Next John Green book that I will be rereading is:
Happy happy summer reading!!!
