Book Description
From the #1 bestselling author of The Fault in Our Stars

Michael L. Printz Honor Book
Los Angeles Times Book Prize Finalist

When it comes to relationships, Colin Singleton's type is 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.

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.

Not as good as I expected
By: Leanita Winandari

This book has interesting premise--the only reason I bought this book, beside it's John Green's. But I can't relate with the characters and the story itself. There are times when I argued  with myself to put down this book, and I always did it. I can't stand Colin, he's too whinny and annoying, imho, and it's really hard to like him. 

Though, I think this book is okay and--there are many people who like this book and I still in love with John Green's writing style--An Abundance of Katherines is clearly my worst experience wtih John Green's books.

It didn't work very well for me. This book has no point to it and it is kind of confusing how this book changes from first point of view to a second point of view.

Same name, different stories, same endings. It's always been like that for him. “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.”

This book is written beautifully by Mr. Green. All the words, the dialogues yet the plot is so interesting. Getting into the book is the icing of a cake. Since it is a Young Adult contemporary fiction, getting into it is pretty easy. The words are easy there no difficult vocabularies. 

I definitely recommend this book to be read during mourning periods or a huge book hangover. This book makes your heart felt a little warmer. This book has an interesting concept and words that tie in together perfectly. It made such a wonderous book.

If you just started into liking and/or enjoying reading, I definitely recommend to picking this book up. Its a pretty short book with an interesting plotline and easy vocabularies. So? Go pick this book up!

Lindsey. Dari sanalah petualangan Colin berlangsung.

Buku ini sungguh menarik untuk dibaca saat waktu senggang. Karakter dan penokohan dijelaskan dengan simple sehingga mudah untuk mengerti perasaan sang tokoh. Saya pribadi sangat suka dengan karakter Hassan yang humoris dan setia kawan. Bagi yang menyukai matematika, fisika, anda akan merasa cocok dengan Colin. Karena sang anak ajaib ini berusaha membuat penemuan baru mengenai presentasi orang tercampak dan yang mencampakkan.

Dengan bumbu-bumbu romansa, John Green mampu membuat cerita khas Young Adult yang cocok untuk remaja. Tidak hanya romansa, ada juga teen spirit yang terkandung dalam novel ini. 

Overall, novel ini sangat menarik untuk dibaca. Penasaran kan? Buruan dibeli :)
