Summary (From Goodreads):
I have put off writing this review. I even thought about not writing a review for this book. I love John Green as an author and a part of me wants to love every single book he writes. I know that is not possible and An Abundance of Katherines proves that.
I found Colin to be a very dull, passive character. He was depressed with his break up with Katherine 19, but he could still have a personality. Colin was super smart, but I had no connection to him. I found him to be very boring. Although the formula was interesting I often found myself bored while reading this novel.
Then there was Hassan who added a little life to the book, but at that point I just thought that the book was boring. I liked Lindsey as a character, but I was still struggling to connect with her as a character. For once she wasn't trying to escape from her past, but stay in the town she grew up in.
I thought the Katherine premise of the book was interesting I just don't think the execution was amazing by any means. I think the story could have had less math and more romance or just action in general. A mobbing main character didn't interest me. Although the ending gave me warm fuzzies I was just fed up with the book by the end to really enjoy the ending. I struggled to read An Abundance of Katherines. Although I didn't hate it by any means I didn't necessarily love it either. This one will not go down as my favorite John Green book, but I have had books I disliked by my favorite authors before and still loved them.
Thanks for reading
