An Abundance of Katherines - John Green Second JG book...and even more underwhelming than [b:Looking for Alaska|99561|Looking for Alaska|John Green|http://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1375127275s/99561.jpg|919292]. I like general math okay but I really don't like the math with lots of graphs, charts and formulas so that probably played a big part in my lack on enjoyment and boredom throughout the book. While I couldn't connect with [b:Looking for Alaska|99561|Looking for Alaska|John Green|http://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1375127275s/99561.jpg|919292], I wasn't bored by it. But this? Yeah, I had to put down this less than 250 pages book more times than I can count. I didn't care for the characters and almost none of Hassan's humor made me laugh.The reason why this isn't 2 stars instead of 3 is because, once again, I liked that bit towards the end (Collin's Eureka moment) that was quite profound. I also like some of the trivia like the myth about eight glasses of water + quotes.Some of the quotes I liked:“The future lay before him, inevitable but invisible.” “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.”“Do you ever wonder whether people would like you more or less if they could see inside you? … but I always wonder about that. If people could see me the way I see myself - if they could live in my memories - would anyone, anyone, love me?”And I loved this new word I learned. Abligurition - the spending of too much money on food.
