The story is amazing, but the narrator was absolutely awful.
The writing is wonderful.
His reading of the dialogue was positively awful, adding too much accent where there should not be any, and his monotone for the Colonel is awful.
Depending on the director, aND John's involvement.
Re-record it with a better narrator, and possibly a female for Alaska.
I regret, with every fiber of my being, purchasing this "book." The characters--shallow, sexist, condescending, and boring; the plot--dull, and tries too hard to be inventive and philosophical. John Greene is the worst writer I have ever encountered. DO NOT spend your money on this awful, awful, awful book.
this is one of the best book in the world in my opinion. everything is this is earthen Hart warming funny or sad. I hope u love this book as much as I do.
Finally some depth. The earlier portion presented decadence almost like a virtue. Hardly a good example to young kids, though no doubt realistically portrayed, unfortunately.
Haven't read the print version
The suspense towards the end
I believe so. Used many voices for the characters
Most parts made me laugh
For performance Looking for Alaska ranks close to the top as the narrator does a great job of creating different but well-suited vocal personalities for each main character. The story however is ranked somewhere along with an airport novel. Predictable plot-lines and narrative along with pretty cookie-cutter characters didn't do much to inspire me, but it was well enough written that it worked as a background story to listen to without having to focus on it constantly.
The ending wasn't much of a surprise, but it did bring everything to a tidy conclusion well enough to satisfy.
Can't compare, as I've never heard any of the narrator's other performances.
No extremes for me.
