An Abundance of Katherines

Last book I've read...

An Abundance of Katherines (2006)
Author: John Green

I had fun reading it. There's a lot of insights that are pretty obvious in life, but we still managed to ignore. It reminds me of The Perks of Being a Wallflower, however Colin is totally different with Charlie, but both interesting and relatable. It's the first time that I've read a fiction with footnotes, and it isn't bad for a first, though it's a bit tedious to read sentences in smaller font sizes, it helps on explaining complicated context. I also learned few trivia bits, some pretty interesting, and some are too technical especially the application of mathematics to formulate the theorem.(major nosebleed!)

Nonetheless, I like it, and I'm excited to read the rest of his books :)

Book Description:
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. He's also a washed-up child prodigy with ten thousand dollars in his pocket, a passion for anagrams, and an overweight, Judge Judy-obsessed best friend. Colin's on a mission to prove The Theorem of Underlying Katherine Predictability, which will predict the future of all relationships, transform him from a fading prodigy into a true genius, and finally win him the girl. Letting expectations go and allowing love in are at the heart of Colin's hilarious quest to find his missing piece and avenge dumpees everywhere.
