An Abundance of Katherine’s is a clever and humorous book by one of my favorite authors John Green. The book tells the story of Colin Singleton, and how he only dates girls names Katherine. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone around my age, because I really enjoyed this book and was sad to see it come to an end.
This book made sense to me and was very organized. This book really didn’t have any major twist, but it still kept me interested. Colin, Hassan , and Linsey are the three main character. They are just normal people so they are very believable, and relatable. This book has a happy ending , so that really pleased me unlike some of the other books by John Green.
It tells about Colin a washed up child prodigy , and how at the at the end of his senior year Katherine number nineteen dumps him, and he is left heartbroken. That’s when his best and only friend Hassan forces him to go on a road trip with him. The two end up in Gunshot, a small town in Tennessee . Where he meets Linsey Lee Wells, a outgoing,clever, and witty girl. There Colin figures out what he wanted, he makes a theorem to help him understand his love life.
The story is narrated from Colin’s point of view. Sometime Colin is very emotional, such as whenKatherine broke up with him. When that happen we knew exactly how he was feeling, so Green’s use of Colin’s voice was very effective throughout the story. This book has a lesson about love and how it’s unexpected and unpredictable in a very unique way.
This book really seemed to target teenagers. The information fit the age group . The vocabulary is basic and easy to understand. All though since Colin was a prodigy so there is the a lot of mathematical terms, but it was all explained very well I’m the appendix.
Over all I thought this was a great book for people my age. It was very funny , and I could definitely relate to most of the characters. Green expressed the message about love in this book in a way in would how never thought possible .
