Paper Towns is the second of John Green’s novel to have a film adaptation the story line of it was so much different from The Fault in the Stars which was the first tear-jerking film adaptation of John green. The story revolves around Quentin, a 17-year-old boy that spends one of his unforgettable night with the girl of his dreams named Margo then decided to chase her when she disappeared in their town the next day. Margo is Quentin’s long time crush that lived next-door to his house and has a habit of climbing in through his bedroom window when they were kids but dropped this habit around the time when she became the most popular girl in their school, then one unexpected night Margo climbs in Quentin’s bedroom to ask him to drive her around the neighborhood. On that crazy night Quentin’s fall in love more with Margo but the mystery starts when Margo disappeared the next day. In Quentin’s journey with his friends he learns a lot of things and more of danger on falling in love with a person you don’t really know and what he mustn’t take everything for granted.
When a book has become a film, the book readers or critics has more expectation about it and Schreirer’s work about the film was delivered in a bittersweet mood which was the book all about. The most interesting scene was when Margo disappeared and Quentin tries to find some clues. It is an amazing feeling like the one who is watching this film is really solving mysteries. The ending was a little bit hard to be delivered but the film takes justice to it and gave a fleeting feeling of regret and acceptance. The story is not much more of a romance but as the story continuous you will know the real meaning of the film- a self-discovery journey about friendship, love and life.
