An Abundance of Katherines by John Green



“What is the point of being alive if you don't at least try to do something remarkable?” 


Child prodigy (not quite a genius) and anagram loving Colin Singleton has dated and has been dumped nineteen times in his whole life. All of the girls he has dated has one thing in common - they're all named Katherine. 

When the most recent Katherine (aka Katherine XIX) dumped him after their high school graduation, he embarks on a road trip with his best friend Hassan Harbish. 

The road trip led them to the rural town of Gutshot, Tennessee where they met spunky "paramedic-in-training" Lindsay Lee Wells and the Collin and Hassan ended up working for her mother, Hollis. 

Colin then finds himself on a mission to prove a mathematical theory that will predict the future of a relationship.





An Abundance of Katherines is a fun and a light read. With the quirky characters, anagrams, formulas, graphs and equations (and i'm not even fond of my math lessons -.-), John Green has created a funny and intelligent story that his fans (or first time readers) would love.

I also enjoyed the appendix written by the mathematician and John Green's friend, Daniel Bliss which gives us a more detailed explanation about the formulas, graphs and equations (gasp) that Colin had used throughout the book. Don't let the maths scare you though, John Green made sure that if you weren't fond of Math (like me!) you'll still enjoy reading the story.

What sets this book apart from the other John Green novels was I found it more relatable (as a teen) than his other books. It might not be his best or most popular work - but it's a good read and i would recommend it.
