(Review) The Abundance of Katherines by John Green

image

Another story by John Green was on my reading list for Christmas Holidays: the abundance of katherines. It was not as „rich“ as the other two stories by John Green I read before, but I liked the characters very much. In this story, I was able to find a little bit of myself in each character, which made their actions comprehensible, but also a little predictable.
In this book, Colin is working on a theorem, which tells the processes and ends of relationships, and I am still wondering, whether this works in real. Maybe it is like everything in life, you see in it what you want to see.
All in all, it’s a nice story, particulary if you are interested in useless science (because Colin is kind of king when it comes to it).

Beschreibung von Goodreads:
Katherine V thought boys were gross
Katherine X just wanted to be friends
Katherine XVIII dumped him in an e-mail
K-19 broke his heart
When it comes to relationships, Colin Singleton’s type happens to be girls named Katherine. And when it comes to girls named Katherine, Colin is always getting dumped. Nineteen times, to be exact.

On a road trip miles from home, this anagram-happy, washed-up child prodigy has ten thousand dollars in his pocket, a bloodthirsty feral hog on his trail, and an overweight, Judge Judy-loving best friend riding shotgun–but no Katherines. Colin is on a mission to prove The Theorem of Underlying Katherine Predictability, which he hopes will predict the future of any relationship, avenge Dumpees everywhere, and finally win him the girl. Love, friendship, and a dead Austro-Hungarian archduke add up to surprising and heart-changing conclusions in this ingeniously layered comic novel about reinventing oneself.
