    An American frigate, tracking down a ship-sinking monster, faces not a living creature but an incredible invention - a fantastic submarine commanded by the mysterious Captain Nemo. Suddenly a devastating explosion leaves just three survivors, who find themselves prisoners inside Nemo's death ship on an underwater odyssey around the world from the pearl-laden waters of Ceylon to the icy dangers of the South Pole... as Captain Nemo, one of the greatest villians ever created, takes his revenge on all society. More than a marvelously thrilling drama, this is a perfect classic novel,

    Story

    A classic story of a mad, mysterious recluse on an unimaginably futuristic (for the time) submarine. I enjoyed the story a lot, but beware, a lot of the time in the book lists flora and fauna observed by the characters on their journey... which can get very, very tedious. Other than that, great book, and an especially great reading.

    Miles Halter is fascinated by famous last words - and tired of his safe life at home. He leaves for boarding school to seek what the dying poet Francois Rabelais called the "Great Perhaps." Much awaits Miles at Culver Creek, including Alaska Young. Clever, funny, screwed-up, and dead sexy, Alaska will pull Miles into her labyrinth and catapult him into the Great Perhaps.

    Looking for Alaska brilliantly chronicles the indelible impact one life can have on another.

    A very well done audiobook and a great read from author John Green. He has a way of writing that is intellectual yet completely relatable, and I would not hesitate to recommend this book. The characters are interesting and it is easy to get pulled into the world of Culver Creek. Also fascinating are the overarching questions about life, death and love. Excellent read, excellent listen, and I hope to read many more from him.
