Novel Monday – An Abundance of Katherines by John Green

Hello again!

Last weeks novel was An Abundance of Katherines by John Green.

Colin Singleton is a washed-up prodigy fresh off his break-up with Katherine XIX. Now he’s on a road trip with his best friend, trying to make The Theorem of Underlying Katherine Predictability work so he can claim genius and win the girl.

This was a good novel. A John Green novel (if you’ve read any of his novels, you probably know what I mean). It is full of humor and odd information. It has foot notes galore, which are amusing, and somewhat frustrating when reading it on my tablet.

It seems to me really a novel about finding oneself, with interesting character and almost a self-deprecating humor. Colin is whiny and heartsick, which could get very tedious and annoying, but instead it is just funny. His conversations with his best friend, Hassan, go a long way to making Colin likeable.

Comparatively, I would put this a bit under The Fault In Our Stars. I couldn’t put The Fault In Our Stars down when I read it, but this one I took frequent breaks from.

3 out of 5.

So, on to this week!

This weeks novel will be…

The Adoration of Jenna Fox by Mary E. Pearson
