So this novel has a bit of background to it. A few years ago I was looking through the shelves at my library for a book to read. I came across this one, read the inside flap, and decided not to read it. After I read Looking For Alaska and saw that the same author wrote both of these books, I decided to read An Abundance of Katherines. I have to say, I was a little disappointed. I heard that this book was better than Looking For Alaska, and I would have to disagree completely. Not that this book was bad, it just didn't have that "wow" factor that Alaska did. Almost three-fourths of the way through this book, I started to get bored and I think it's the uncanny similarities between the books: a male protagonist with an unusual hobby (Miles likes famous last words and Colin likes anagramming), a funny best friend, and the untouchable girl. I would recommend reading this book, just be wary, and definitely read Looking For Alaska.
