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.

    "A must!!"

    Such a great book! I recommend for ages 14-15 and older. For there is some mature language and content. Aside from that... it definitely is a must. You won't be able to quit!

    "Amazing reader"

    The reader of this book was exceptional, modifying his speech to give each character their own quirky voice.
    It was quite the act.

    "I didn't finish it"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No, I didn't enjoy the book...due to the performance, it makes me hard to get into the story, or makes me rather dislike the character Alaska, very much. I feel if I read this book personally, I wouldn't dislike it this much, but I can't finish it, just the thought of that I have to listen to Alaska speak again. Male characters performance are fine, only the female characters way of talking seems very much self centered and fake.

    Story
    "Had trouble connecting"

    While I liked the writing style and almost all the characters (dealing with their teenage dramas), I found it impossible to connect to Alaska. Maybe it was just the way her character was read. Or the accent that was used. Either way, not being able to made me miss out on a vital part of this story.

    Story
    "Finally got to the point towards the last half"

    The first half was okay, then it got more interesting. At first it just seemed to be about a boy learning to smoke, drink, make out, and play pranks. Then it turned into a Deep Thoughts book. I like deep thoughts, and the ideas discussed were worthy. So, a mixed bag overall, but glad I read it.

    "Narrator issue"

    How narrator handled the girls voices was a serious crime. His boy voices were great.

    "John Green is a master"
    Any additional comments?

    I read this book for Banned Books Week. I think it was challenged for inappropriate language and sexual nature or something like that. Anyways, it's a mature YA in that aspect. I am an adult that reads much more explicit all the time, but it did surprise me a little. I guess I've forgotten how it is to be a teen, but the author seems really in touch with those years. It made me remember how difficult parts can be. Also, throw in the Alaska situation, and you've got some things to contemplate. I think this is a great story because it kept my interest, but also it shows how life really can change in the blink of an eye. The intended age group doesn't seem to understand that, and we often forget it as adults too. I recommend this book to both groups. It may make you emotional, but for me it wasn't a crying situation like some of John Green's others.
