Title
An Abundance of Katherines
Review
I thought this book was pretty good but a little boring. The story focuses on Colin Singleton, a child prodigy who, by the end of high school, has dated 19 different girls named Katherine. Colin sets out with his best friend, Hassan, on a road trip. They have no idea where they are going. Soon, Colin starts to develop a theory that will predict the way a relationship will go, based on several factors. But then Colin meets a girl who may just change everything.
I would recommend this book to people who like reading about gifted kids and teen romance.

Looking at the cover, you'd think that this book would be an awesome one. At least that's what I thought when I checked this book out, but honestly, I had to stop reading it when I was not even a quarter way through the book. It wasn't that the writing was terrible. It was that the characters really bothered me. For example, Lilah, who is one of the main characters, is the most crazy, obsessive person to the point where I'm actually frightened. I do give Sean Olin some credit that he wrote the characters that kind of scare me, but it was kind of too much for me to handle. I feel bad that I didn't finish the book, but eh. I would say that I wouldn't recommend this book, but I haven't finished it, so I can't really say.
