Theme

The theme for the book Paper Towns is either friendship or exploration. Friendship is one of the many themes in this book but it is one of the most important, in the book Quentin has only two friends, Ben and Radar, while Margo seems to be friends with everyone. In the end though Margo and Quentin become great friends again. The theme can also be exploration because Quentin and Margo go in a great journey and discover many new things for example Quentin learns what it's like to be brave, and Margo learned that she needed to be herself more often on the journey.

Quotes

1. “Margo always loved mysteries. And in everything that came afterward, I could never stop thinking that maybe she loved mysteries so much that she became one.” -John Green, Paper Towns

2. “The town was paper, but the memories were not.” -John Green, Paper Towns

3. “Here's what's not beautiful about it: from here, you can't see the rust or the cracked paint or whatever, but you can tell what the place really is. You can see how fake it all is. It's not even hard enough to be made out of plastic. It's a paper town. I mean, look at it, Q: look at all those culs-de-sac, those streets that turn in on themselves, all the houses that were built to fall apart. All those paper people living in their paper houses, burning the future to stay warm." -John Green, Paper Towns

Movie Comparison

I think that the book was better than the movie because it was more self-explanatory than the movie. It went more in depth and was more interesting.
