This was definitely my least favourite book by John Green. The best parts are, undoubtedly, the dialogues between Hassan and Colin.
The Albuquerque library system is pretty bad. Full review to come.
An Abundance of Katherines Book Review
View all 4 comments. Jan 03, Kelly and the Book Boar rated it it was amazing Shelves: This book was so good that I finished it in less than a day. I admit, I skimmed kaherines lot of the theorems and graphs and algebraic equations. There, they meet Lindsey Lee Wells.
That’s not exactly my kind of humor, but I’m sure there are other people who love that kinda stuff. He was annoying and whiny and just because he acknowledges that fact himself doesn’t mean it makes it any less annoying to read about. And I’ve already spent enough of my one precious life abundsnces about how his books are the literary embodiment of high school boys being unsuccessful in love and the general social hierarchy and then constructing an impossibly unpleasant wall of moral superiority as some sort of retroactive explanation for why no one likes them they’re all stupid and superficial anyway and I’m ABOVE all of that when really maybe they’re just obnoxious or plain unlucky and they can’t seem to realize that – etc etc to want to spend much more time on it.
An Abundance of Katherines by John Green – review
He hopes to become a genius by having a ” eureka ” moment. After sulking for several days after being dumped againColin is dragged out of his room by Hasan, his best friend.
This is the second time I’ve read Green and I cannot say I was impressed with this one. Who else was annoyed by Colin? You met a girl named Katherine and the two of you started dating. I remember sitting in the Boston Commons on summer night inI was 17, freshly graduated waiting to start college… we had just moved into an apartment in East Boston and Jimmy Cliff was playing a concert in the park.
An Abundance of Katherines by John Green
Hassan, Colin’s best friend, provides most of the book’s comic relief. First I thought the idea with dating only girls named Katherine would be interesting or fun,but it turned out to be so dull and I really thought of not finishing this book. Hassan tells him this is the way to act and no, never say that. To me this book was just bland.
I think this kind of POV makes Abunrances unrelatable and exposes him for what he really is – a self-centered insecure super nerdy nerd whose head is full of theorems, anagrams, and numerous random facts. I loved it when Hassan told him how selfish he was then later decided that he Hassan was the selfish one. A abundannces smart boy who happens to meet a popular unhappy girl,from who he learns about the beauty of living free and young,and also falls in love with.
Have we really gone back to the time when Mexican characters dropped random bits of Spanish into their sentences? He compare This was definitely my least favourite book by John Green. Actually, that’s a lie. Anyway, the book is fun, katheries of silly, full of very interesting footnotes and math, and pretty damn funny. Abundsnces all 17 comments. I just don’t get the hype.
Also, I didn’t appreciate how his weight was used as a plot device. Comic slacker-geek lit is fun for the right teen. Or a whiny guy who speaks 11 languages.
I did like Hassan. Lindsey wasn’t that interesting either. Can you think of any other books — or even movies — that feature teens or young adults hitting the baundances in search of themselves? If it was any longer I probably wouldn’t have finished it.
It didn’t have any good twists or an engaging plot. Dec 05, Dawn rated it it was ok Shelves: I’ll write a book about od However, this entire trip, NAH the whole damn book, was constantly repetitive. The novel carries some very important messages about fitting in and about trying to see logic in everything.
Even teens katerines don’t relate to Colin’s feelings of being a failed prodigy will understand anxieties about growing up and his quest for a “Eureka” moment. It’s like he’s instantly sold on the girl because of her name. Oct 18, Jeff rated it it was ok.
His brother Hank had been kicking his butt, but had to leave to mediate on the metaphysics of ice-cream trucks before he could finish spelling ‘hamartia’ luckily. Soon he starts to realize that maybe he had been looking at all of them in that same way. View all 52 comments. Guess I thought wrong. I was all like, “Woah! Learning something new every time I read is something I enjoy ot
