reader ✓ Paper Towns ↠ John Green
Ys an enigma has now become a mystery But soon learns that there are clues and they're for him Urged down a disconnected path the closer he gets the less sees the girl he thought he kn “Mirroring” is a concept in psychology where a person can know himself better by soliciting feedbacks from other people who he interacts with either at home or at work Last weekend I attended a company sponsored teambuilding session and the facilitator used this I got some good feedbacks that confirmed what I already knew but also some revelations Those included in the so called “blindspots” uadrantIn this novel Paper Towns John Green indirectly used Margo Roth Spiegelman for uentine Jacobsen or simply to understand love and life and to know himself better as a person as a man Not by giving him direct feedbacks but by making him experience the things that he would not have dared doing Who would have dared driving your parents’ car in the middle of the night pushing it with your friend few meters away from the house so as not to awake them with the sound of the engine? Then going to the houses of the people who wronged your friend just to avenge? Then your friend disappeared with no intention of returning and not wanting to be found the following day? Leaving a note after a hug and a kiss “I Will Miss Hanging Out With You” That was after leaving catfishes in the underwear drawer of a friend ha ha Who would have thought of having this plot in the first place? What makes this novel engaging is the prose it is downright sincere and true to its voice youngish uirky innocent yet full of life lessons Green does not push down his philosophy on growing up down your throat He lets you enjoy his story and life realizations just naturally follow I am sure that Green’s idiosyncrasies must have been reflected somehow by his many male characters Radar and Ben but Margo permeates in each page of this novel ”Yes The fundamental mistake I had always made — and that she had in fairness always led me to make — was this Margo was not a miracle She was not an adventure She was not a fine and precious thing She was a girl I applaud Green for creating a character like Margo that can rally boys to transform themselves into men without disregard to the pains of growing up After all we all went through those pains – not having a prom date losing your first love unreuited love unknowingly pissing off some of our friends etc – and we all learned from them As we grow old we tend to ridicule young people experiencing the same pains and call them trivial and proudly say something like you ain’t seen nothing yet But for them those are parts of their lives That’s where we were That’s where they are now Like Margo’s paper towns we need to take care not to blow down the delicate houses and make them fall apart And yes even one of my blind spots has just been cleared by this novel I never thought that a middle age man like me would still enjoy a YA book Where were these books when I was growing up?
