An Abundance of Katherines

Title: An Abundance of Katherines

Author: John Green

Rating: 3 stars

Summary: In this new novel from the acclaimed author of "Looking for Alaska," Colin Singleton always falls for girls named Katherine--and he's been dumped 19 times, to be exact. Letting expectations go and allowing love are in the heart of his hilarious quest to find his missing piece and avenge dumpees everywhere.

Review: Things I don't like: roadtrips that only happen because the guy is/was in love with this girl. That's how the whole book started, with Colin's best friend, Hassan, convincing him to go on some random roadtrip with no particular destination. Hassa was pretty cool, but Colin was just... no. First of all, Colin Singleton? Are you serious? Second of all, Colin was this whining, clingy guy with a fetish for getting dumped by girls named Katherine. Not a very good main character. Third, the book was basically Colin getting over Katherine XIX, who was also Katherine I.

And look! Here's a graph!

I now refuse to read any more John Green books for fear of them continuing to downward slope.
