When it comes to relationships, Colin Singleton’s type is girls named Katherine. And when it comes to girls named Katherine, Colin is always getting dumped. Nineteen times, to be exact. On a road trip miles from home, this anagram-happy, washed-up child prodigy has ten thousand dollars in his pocket, a bloodthirsty feral hog on his trail, and an overweight, Judge Judy-loving best friend riding shotgun – but no Katherines. Colin is on a mission to prove The Theorem of Underlying Katherine Predictability, which he hopes will predict the future of any relationship, avenge Dumpees everywhere, and finally win him the girl. Love, friendship, and a dead Austro-Hungarian archduke add up to surprising and heart-changing conclusions in this ingeniously layered comic novel about reinventing oneself by Printz medalist John Green, acclaimed author of Looking for Alaska.

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Latara | 2/17/2014

    " Okay, I feel like I should explain why I gave this one 2-stars. I must say that there were really good bits. I somehow find myself laughing on some parts, mostly because of Hassan's being a funnypants. Other than that, it's just dull. It was such a drag with this book. I find myself putting it down most of the time. Colin Singleton is so not interesting I want to bang my head to a wall. He whines so much and I just got sick of all the anagrams and the graphs by the end of it. I'm even surprised how I finished this one. "

    " I wish I could give half stars as well since this book was better than a 3, but not a 4. It took me a long while to finish (I couldn't get into it, so stopped reading half way through somewhere last year). I picked it up again last week and this time the story did manage to keep me interested. But still, it was my least favourite John Green book. "

    " has logic and maths in it, pretty interesting "

    " Many laugh out loud moments. I really liked the characters. Good light reading. This book was my first John Green novel. "
