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.

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.
I was a huge fan of the fault in our stars and decided to read more of John Greens work. After reading the reviews I decided to give it a shot and I loved it. You really get to enjoy and grow to like the characters. The story line started off a little slow for me but I really enjoyed it after a few chapters. The narrator did a really good job reading this and his voices for different character was great. I would read this again and have already suggested it to friends.
I rated it 5 stars well beaches this is an amazing story! I love how riveting and enjoyable it is. I listened to this story for the whole 6 hours or so and just never had it stop playing. It's a story that never had any boring things everything in it was tied to something else and it kept you on the edge about what was going to happen next. The book has so many different things to it, there is some romance, rebellion, there is the schooling, and so much more! This book is just so amazing I can't even describe it I got so into it that with what happened to Alaska I cried! I will stay up at night just thinking non-stop about this book it's one that has u just hooked! U will love it!
