An Abundance of Katherines

Title: An Abundance of Katherines
Author: John Green
Publisher: Penguin Books 20013
226 pages

They like their coffee like they like their ex-boyfriend: bitter
I read lots of positive comments for John Green's works. Found this An Abundance of Katherines and curious about its plot since it's said '19 Katherines and counting…' It's about Colin. A prodigy child who has been dumped by 19 girlfriends, all named Katherines. Then continued with a road trip between Colin and his best buddy, Hassan. They encounter lots of unpredictable things yet no girl named Katherine. Tell you what, it's quite promising to be an exciting plot, right? 

But, it turns out to be a definite boring story. A strange plot, not very likeable characters and many many long boring passages. I completely missed it. I guess I chose the wrong book of Green to start. Perhaps I should try reading Green's other works.

@Ferina: hehe…ini akibat baca Eleanor & Park, jadi tiba2 pingin nostalgia baca buku2 young adult..(pura-pura lupa umur) :p

The Fault in our Stars yang udah ada filmya ya? Will Grayson oke noted, Looking for Alaska bagus juga ga?
Btw thanks infonya, kalo untuk buku2 young adult sepertinya daku harus banyak bertanya pada dirimu :))
