Publisher's Summary

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 stunning debut, it marks John Green's arrival as an important new voice in contemporary fiction.

    "Read!!!"

    What I had began to assume would be a tragic life lesson story tailored to young adults became one of the most surprising and refreshingly rich narratives, embedded with universal themes for every age!

    Story
    "Sad to say....disappointed"

    I was enjoying the story and listening with my 13 year old. We have loved other books by this author. I was super disappointed with the nearly pornagraphic descriptions of sex between the teens and a first blowjob. I'm a pretty open parent about discussing sex with my kids, but I felt it went too far. Can't recommend this book to anyone I know.

    "John Green's Best Book"

    I really enjoyed listening to this book. After seeing so many people recommend it I had to give it a chance and am glad I did. It's now one of my top 10 favorite books.

    "I must demand another!"

    How will you escape the labyrinth?
    This book has been so much more to me than a fictional story.

    Story
    "Just another YA novel"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Meh...I've done worse things with my time. Truthfully, the book wasn't very good though.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    It all felt stale and unoriginal. The author was purposefully going after my emotions...which made it impossible for me to really feel much of anything (except manipulated).


    What does Jeff Woodman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He does sound appropriately teen angst-y.


    Did Looking for Alaska inspire you to do anything?

    Nope. Uh-uh. Can't think of a thing.

    Story
    "Perhaps Not"

    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.
