My first John Green book was The Fault in Our Stars, one of the best books I’ve ever read. So I went into AN ABUNDANCE OF KATHERINES with some high expectations.
Colin, boy genius, was just dumped by K-19. His best friend, Hassan, has convinced him road trip for the summer to get out of his head, experience life, and forget about the Katherines. Their trip leads them to a small town in the middle of nowhere Tennessee, where for the first time, Colin learns to live.
What I enjoyed about this book: Hassan, the best friend in this book stole the show for me.
What I didn’t like: It was no The Fault in Our Stars. I was expecting it to be greater than it was. Not to say it wasn’t good in its own right, but I went into this book with higher expectations than I should have.
Was this book worth reading? For sure! Friendships, heartache, love, an extremely plausible adventure, YES.
