YMMV: Paper Towns
  • Alternate Character Interpretation: In-story and out.
    • The message of the story is how we look at people as mirrors rather than windows.
    • Q could be read as a romantic adventurer or an obsessed tragic figure. Q even claims that Captain Ahab is the hero of Moby Dick.
  • Crowning Moment of Funny: The road trip, especially Radar's shirt.
    • The Beer sword.
  • Deconstruction: Of John Green's own Looking for Alaska
  • Family-Unfriendly Aesop: So humans will never truly understand each other.
    • Actually, the Aesop is more along the lines of people needing to learn to think of others complexly, not that we can't understand each other.
    • It could even be argued that realizing that you can never understand anyone completely isn't that unfriendly an aesop, given that it allows you to begin to think of people complexly
