I have read all of John Green's books, but this one is by far my favorite. The main character Colin Singleton manages to capture the awkward teenage angst that is humorously paired with him being a child prodigy, NOT a genius. Green brings in humor into every aspect of the book with Colin and his Muslim friend ending up in Gutshot, Tennessee while he is trying to create the relationship Theorem. I never experienced strict math in relationships, but I found myself endless laughing while I was reading on the subway. Fun read that will also make you think. "Books are the ultimate Dumpees: put them down and they’ll wait for you forever; pay attention to them and they always love you back"

I really enjoyed this book and would suggest John Green lovers give it a try. It's a great read for girls who like quirky love stories and funny friendships.I look forward to reading this book again, and more novels by this author in the future.

An Abundance of Katherines was an amazing, witty book that keeps its readers amused and longing for more.Filled with random factoids, Abundance keeps readers laughing and intrigued. Green writes in such a way that his readers can relate to what the characters are feeling and thinking. The book brings to its audience great joy and sometimes deep sadness, which brings out Green's excellent writing style. Thank you, John Green, for gifting the world with another amazing book.

Colin Singleton always falls for girls named Katherine — and he's been dumped by all of them. Letting expectations go and allowing love in are part of Colin's hilarious quest to find his missing piece and avenge dumpees everywhere.
