This week I finished reading Paper Towns. And I’ve got mixed feeling about it. In overall I liked the book, only it took quite some time to finish it, because like halfway I was kind of loosing interest. Although I still wanted to know what was going to happen next, it took a bit too long for that thing to actually happen :p But overall, I really liked the experience of this book!
I like the way John Green writes and I’m also pretty excited about the movie that will be coming out based on Paper Towns starring Nat Wolff and Cara Delevigne. That will be interesting! It will be out on the 25th of June, so that won’t be long at all.
But the most important thing: the story. It’s about Quentin, who is a introverted boy with a couple of close friends. Margo is the girl next door who he always liked, ever since they were kids. When they were younger they discovered a death body in a park near to their home, and that’s something that has always stayed with them. Margo is not a ordinairy girl. She has a strong voice and as Q and Margo are growing older they kind of loose contact. Untill she appears in front of Q’s window and she wants his help in some kind of adventure. What follows is one weird night and after that: Margo dissapears and the ‘quest’ for Margo is started by Quentin himself. Where did she go and why exactly did she leave like this?
I love the links between the search and Walt Whitman’s book Leaves of Grass. John Green once again created some vivid characters! If you are into his writing, I’m sure you will enjoy this book as well!
This weekend I watched Into the Wild for the second. I just love this movie: the message, the acting and the music. It is just really inspiring and makes you think about life. Such great acting from Emile Hirsch!
It’s about a young man, who wants to get away from civilation, the life you are supposed to live, and who is just going into the wild. – Based on a true story.
Definitely a recommendation!
Ps. Check out the album Eddie Vedder made for this movie
Jamie’s new book ‘Comfort Food’ is out & I will definitely add it to my book-collection.
I’ve watched some episodes based on this book (also called, really hard to guess.. Comfort Food). And I love it! Jamie is just as great, funny and creative as always. I absolutely love this man, his cute family & his tasty recipes!
From lovely pies tot lasagna, chicken, pasta, just everything. He really knows how to make people hungry haha. Like Jamie says, Comfort food is the heartbeat of a home.
In the Netherlands they used a song for his new program. It’s called Pure Joy, sung by M. Ward. It goes perfectly well together with the kind of vibe you get from Jamie and his recipes.
So, you’ve probably noticed how much I like Jamie, haha.
What do you think about his new work, just as big of a fan as I am?
