AN ABUNDANCE OF KATHERINES
Transcript of AN ABUNDANCE OF KATHERINES
PROTAGONIST / ANTAGONIST
Hassan-Colin's Arabic best friend
Lindsey-A girl Colin meets on a road trip
"An Abundance of Katherines" was a really good book and I would definitely recommend reading it. John Green always does a good job making a story about an ordinary person who meets someone special and changes their world.
The book starts out with Colin Singleton, a seventeen year old child-prodigy, and his chubby, best friend Hassan. Colin is a hopeless romantic who has dated many girls with one thing in common; they all share the name "Katherine". The only problem is that all nineteen of them have dumped Colin. Because of this, he attempts to put together a formula to predict the outcome of his future relationships with other Katherine's. He soon realizes that the future is unpredictable after finding a girl named Lindsey Lee Wells.
The novel takes place in a fictional area called Gutshot, Tennessee. This small, simple town is held up by a factory opened by Lindsey's great grandfather. This town is introduced after Colin and Hassan decide to take a road trip to cope with Colin's recent breakup with Katherine the nineteenth.
Road Trips-they can symbolize Colin and Hassan's willingness to explore new possibilities. Roads can take us anywhere which can also translate to taking risks.
Anagrams-Anagramming can represent that life can consist of many things that we might not even realize at the moment.
(Anagramming is rearranging the letters in a previous word or phrase.)
One prominent theme is that the future is unknown. Colin tries to create a formula that tells him whether a relationship will work out or not. So, he uses the formula to see how long his relationship with his new girlfriend Lindsey will go on and concludes that it will only last four days. However, she proves this formula wrong because the book ends with the two still together and happy.
