Paper Towns Trailer 


An intriguing tale from the “Fault in Our Stars” author reminds me that cool kids struggle to live up their own legends . Paper Towns Basically revolves around the female protagonist Margo Roth Spiegelman and is narrated in first form by Quentin Jacobson , Q . Story is launched when , one night , out of blue Margo dropped in at Q's place requesting his Car for night with Q as driver . Margo is on mission to take revenge from his boyfriend who cheated on her and rolled Q in his adventure . John Greens had portrayed Margo on the same scale as of Alaska Young in Looking For Alaska . Margo loves mysteries and turned into one , one day . Margo is cool stuff having a strong social life while Q is bolted as an introvert who enjoy the company of his close Friends Ben and Radar .What pulls the story after revenge part is the sudden disappearance of Margo on the very next day .
Paper Towns got this very strong humorous content with writing style good enough to make u laugh rolling down on floor . Not Just Protagonist , Author had given a detailed description of side characters like Ben , radar , Lacey . Ben , a super cool stuff , who is quite famous in school for pissing blood and Ben is found countering everyone saying " Its Kidney Infection " . Then there is Radar , ofcourse like Looking For Alaska , is the code name for a computer geek who stays on updating Omnictionary ( Wikipedia's name in plot ) & his parents own 2nd largest collection of Black Santas .
And like his earlier works , Author emphasized on Friendship in his story and explains the concept of paper Towns in this specific one which he himself had encountered on one of his trip . With Margo's thinking , author has also revealed  the insight view of 21st century way of thinking . How paper people living in their paper houses , burning the future to stay warm .Everyone demented with the mania of owning things . How people never cares about what actually matters and involves themselves in the fake or can paper relations with paper things ( Materialistic ones ) .
So in short , Paper Towns gives a hooking plot with exhausting laughter content with life lessons making it a must read .
