I was kind of saddened by how much I was not overly excited about this book. I typically love John Green books. I struggled with connecting with these characters in general. Even tho if was explained, the use of the words "fugger" and "fug" was really annoying. I found Colin to be way too self absorbed, although his admittance to this did give points to him. I gave it four stars because I felt he (John Green) redeemed himself a bit with the ending.
