An Abundance of Katherines-Book Review

An Abundance of Katherines An Abundance of Katherines by John Green

For some reason I have been unable to make myself write a review of this book. It's hard to put into words what made this book so enjoyable. I loved the relationship between Colin and Hassan. Hassan's humor is so refreshing and hilarious. I was laughing and reading quotes to my husband every ten minutes or so. The mathematical analysis of Colin's relationships with all 19 Katherine's was interesting and not too over my head. It was an added element to the story that gave insight to how Colin's mind works and his heart.

This is Colin's story and journey to discover how his life can matter in the great scheme of things and that a Katherine isn't needed. All that was required: a road trip with a friend to Gutshot, TN and a chance encounter with a non-Katherine, Lindey Lee Wells, her friends and mother and surprisingly, the Archduke Franz Ferdinand.



  1. I read and reviewed this as well. Loved it too (and hard a hard time expressing what was so great).

    Here's my review.

    Have you read either of his other books (Looking for Alaska, Paper Towns)?

  2. Ooh, I've only read "alaska" but I own this one and paper towns too... can't wait!


Thanks for taking the time to comment! :)
