An Abundance of Katherines - John Green I was incredibly on the fence about this book–my previous experience trying to read Will Grayson, Will Grayson didn’t go so well, and my friends have told me that John Green probably has a lot of stuff that I just generally don’t like reading. However, we chose this for my school’s book club because there were plenty of copies in the library, and I was willing to take a chance on it. People have generally told me this is their least favorite John Green book, and I was thoroughly impressed! It wasn’t perfect, but I really enjoyed reading it! I loved the footnotes, and I generally loved the characters. Its one downfall was there was a lot of cursing (that wasn’t technically cursing, but close enough for me to count it), and I didn’t really like Colin all that much. However, I loved just about everything else, so I’d call this a successful first real encounter with John Green! And if this is generally considered the least awesome of his novels? I’m seriously looking forward to reading the rest!Read more?
