An Abundance of Katherines Reviews
Katherine V thought boys were gross
Katherine X just wanted to be friends
Katherine XVIII dumper him in an email
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 time, to be exact.
On a road trip miles from home, this anagram-happy, washed-up child prodigy has ten thousand dollars in his pocket, bloodthristy 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 hart-changing conclusions in this ingeniously layered comic novel about reinventing oneself.
I didn't really enjoy this book as much as I wished I did. This would have to be my lest favourite John Green book, that I have read. The book was hard to get into, and Colin kept mentioning the freaking name Katherine.
Colin was a really winey and he never seemed satisfied with what was in front of him and how much his friend and family cares for him. And to be frank if he knew he kept getting dumped by Katherines why did he keep dating them.
I have to admit, I enjoyed Colin's best friend. He seemed real and pretty awesome. I am pretty pissed that someone would cheat on him though.
3 out of 5 stars
