This week #1 Hot Read Is a nerd fighter book but you don't have to be a nerd fighter to read the book because this book dose not have anything to do with nerdy stuff and these review is of curtsey of Jene.These MAY
CONTAIN A MINER SPOILER.If you had the opportunity to devise a theorem that could correctly
predict the outcome of a romantic relationship, would you do it? If
it worked, would you use it? Can it even be done? This is the problem
plaguing Colin Singleton, recent high school graduate, nearly-former
child prodigy, hopeful genius. Colin, you see, has a significant
He falls in love quite easily, which in and of itself isn't
such a bad thing. The fact that all of his loves, nineteen of them to
be exact, have been named Katherine can even be explained away by some
form of twisted scientific method. What can't be explained, though, is
why Colin has been dumped by all nineteen of those Katherines.
When he's dumped by the love of his life, Katherine XIX, he finds
himself in a bad place.
He can no longer call himself a child
prodigy, since he's graduated from high school. He's not a genius,
because he's never come up with anything that will change the world.
There's an empty place inside of him where his latest Katherine's love
used to live, and he doesn't know what to do with himself. Until
Hassan Harbish (Muslim, but not a terrorist) devises a way to get Colin
out of his funk--a road trip.
With no destination in mind, the two
set off in The Hearse, Colin's car, and go where the road leads them.
Where it leads them is a small town called Gutshot, Tennessee, where
Colin gets the urge to see the supposed grave of Archduke Franz
Ferdinand. It's also where the two meet Lindsey Lee Wells and her
mother, Hollis. Not to mention where they get to live in a giant
Pepto Bismol-pink house on a hill, interview employees of a factory that
makes tampon strings, and eat Monster Thickburgers at the local
It's also the place where Colin decides to finish the
Theorem of Underlying Katherine Predictability. Assign numerical value
to different variables, plot it on a graph, and you'll be able to
predict how long a relationship will last--and who will be the dumper,
and who will be the dumpee. Except Colin forgot some pertinent
information, like chance, and distorted memories, and the fact that
love is never predictable.
As Colin and Hassan learn a few things about
life in the small town of Gutshot, we get to follow their journey of
learning to grow up, to make a name for yourself, and how to matter as a
person. I loved AN ABUNDANCE OF KATHERINES, even more than Mr.
Green's previous book, LOOKING FOR ALASKA. That book won the
prestigious Michael L. Printz award, and I won't be surprised if this
book is nominated, as well. This story is funny, poignant, and
For example, if I hadn't read AN ABUNDANCE OF KATHERINES I
would never have known that: 1) Fetor hepaticus is a symptom of
late-stage liver failure where your breath literally smells like a
rotting corpse. 2) The junior senator from New Hampshire in 1873 was
Bainbridge Wadleigh. 3) There is absolutely no scientific proof that
drinking eight glasses of water a day will improve your health. 4)
Dingleberries can be anagrammed into see inbred girl lie breeds grin
leering debris greed be nil, sir be idle re. rings ringside rebel
and residing rebel. 5) Nikola Tesla did a lot for electricity before
Thomas Edison came along and stole some of his ideas, and he also loved
pigeons. 6) I still suck at math. Order this book today. It's
great, you'll love it, and you'll actually learn stuff. Three for the
price of one!You can check it out here: Amazon.com/An Abundance of Katherines
