She was story not a fine and precious thing. She was a girl. I like finding stuff out about her. I mean, that I didn't know before. I had no idea who she really was. I honestly never thought of her as anything but my crazy beautiful friend who does all the crazy beautiful things. What a treacherous thing it is to believe that a person is more than a person.
I mean look at it, Q: look at all those cul-de-sacs, thoses streets that turn in on themselves, all the houses that were built to fall apart. All those paper people living in their paper houses, burning the future to stay warm. All the paper kids drinking beer some bum bought for them at the paper convenience store. Everyone demented with the mania of owning things. All the things paper-thin and paper-frail. And all the people, too. I've lived here for eighteen years and I have never once in my life come across anyone who cares about anything that matters. Margo was not a miracle.

Quentin calls it the everybody bull-". But I think it's true. Perhaps not universal - i don't know - but the dynamics between quentin and his friends as they attend end of year parties reminded me of my own end of high school experience. People plan opening up to each other in ways that they would never have done earlier in high school. People dating outside of their typical social groups. People attending parties with unlikely cohorts. Regardless of the details, i think that Green captures perfectly the tone of these interactions.
being amazed that only. I'd had nearly four years of experience looking at these clocks, but their sluggishness never ceased to surprise. If i am ever told that I have one day to live, i will head straight for the hallowed halls of Winter Park high School, where a day has been known to last a thousand years." (Page 18, arc). The latter" is classic quentin - expressing a universal experience, but in a witty, eloquent manner. Margo is a strong character, too, though necessarily more mysterious than quentin. You can't help but like her, though, when she says things like: "That's always seemed so ridiculous to me, that people would want to be around someone because they're pretty. It's like picking your breakfast cereals based on color instead of taste." (Page 37, arc).

I think that Green's talent lies not so much in plot, but in creating characters who do out of the ordinary things yet feel completely real. Quentin is an ordinary, slightly geeky kid. And yet, he isn't. His voice is distinct and believable. Here are a couple of examples: "The longest day of my life began tardily."
