When it comes to relationships, Coling Singleton’s type is girls named Katherine. And when it comes to girl named Katherine, Coling is always getting dumped. On road trip miles from home, this anagram-happy, washed-up prodigy has ten thousand dollars in his pocket, a bloody-thirsty feral hog on his trail, and an overweight Jude Judy-loving best fruebd rudubg shotgun – but no Katherine. 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.
For every road trip must have a destination and Gunshot was Colin’s and Hassan’s. Their adventures in Gunshot first appeared to be monotonous as Colin were more introvert and after some convincing, it was filled with events of a joy ride and mishap. This place gave Colin his ‘Eureka’ moment of creating a formula which was significant throughout the book to him. The Theorem caused Colin to a better revelation to this world. Both Hassan and Colin had reached their final destination of self-discovery by the end of the book. Their curiosities of unanswered questions were intriguing as most books do not offered this. The overload of information at the footnote was worth knowing off.
The Theorem which was a major factor in this book had disturbed the course of reading in this book. Not a fan of Mathematics, The Theorem definitely confused me at times as I was unable to understand the graphs and equations. It was frustrating as I was not able to read and comprehend the entire book properly as it revolves around The Theorem.
The writing of this book is slow paced as the book is a coming of age genre whose plot involved with many self-absorption as well as contemplation and doubt to show the growth each character able to achieve. I love that this book offered more than a normal typical books of romance, storyline and conflict but rather an insightful journey. It is recommended to teens that are reaching adulthood and are seeking out their belonging in the world.
