Goodreads.com Summary: When it comes to relationships, Colin Singleton’s type happens to be girls named Katherine. And when it comes to girls named Katherine, Colin is always getting dumped. Nineteen times, to be exact. He’s also a washedup child prodigy with ten thousand dollars in his pocket, a passion for anagrams, and an overweight, Judge Judy-obsessed best friend. Colin’s on a mission to prove The Theorem of Underlying Katherine Predictability, which will predict the future of all relationships, transform him from a fading prodigy into a true genius, and finally win him the girl.

An Abundance Of Katherines was a disappointment after reading Looking For Alaska and The Fault In Our Stars.

I had some trouble getting into at first, but I felt the same way about Looking For Alaska at first, and then I fell in love with it.  Sadly, that did not happen with this book.

It wasn’t horrible, but I didn’t particularly care for any of the characters, especially Colin.  The Katherines were mildly interesting, but not enough to keep me interested.  I skimmed over the math portions, because I was bored and because I didn’t particularly care about Colin’s theorem.

I hate to give a 2 out of 5, but it was just okay.  As much as I love Green, this book didn’t do anything for me.
