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.

Mysterious, Enjoyable, and continuos
My favorite character was Pudge because he was always wanting to know more about Alaska. Never really stopped wondering if he could help her.
Yes i actual did finish this in one day. I sat in a corner in my room and just kept listening.
If you love never ending unhappy ends then this is one you need to read. John Green is an amazing author who always keeps you wondering.
Looking for Alaska is probably my favorite book written by John Green. The characters are great, the setting is perfect. All around it is just a fantastic YA book.
John Green loves to make us love, laugh, and cry. That exactly what this book did. It was slow at the beginning but that was a good thing because it makes the reader think...about everything...
Every time I read a John Green book, new clarity is brought to my adolescent experiences, and I also develop a new understanding of my high school students. (This came recommended by a student.)
This is a beautiful story of adventure, friendship, humor, life, and doing something great in your life. These are great themes of John Green novels, and this does not disappoint.
My only dislike of the audiobook is the narrator's voice for Alaska. While difficult to do a feminine voice, this was off-putting to a degree that undermined the character's inherent sexiness. Although, the voice did remind me of Dog Funnie's crush, Patti Mayonnaise, herself a model GreenLit character. Well done, John Green. Well done.
Yes, I definitely will listen again. I was totally immersed in the story. Even though I have not experienced something like the protagonist, I could relate through the wonderful story telling by John Green.
"I found I had many parallels with Pudge"
I hope I find another book that impacts me like this one has. Thanks John Green and don't forget to be awesome.
This story honestly has a place in my heart it moved me and I have never felt something so uncommon with a Charactor from a book but Alaska young not only pulled Miles into her reckless world but also engrossed me in it too. This story honestly felt like I was there living what Miles was talking about! This is such an amazing book and highly recommend it if you are looking for a good read
