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.

I really did NOT like this book for about the first 1/2 to 2/3. But it was a good distraction while I ran and a friend had really plugged it. So I stuck it out and ended up really liking it.
The character the the voice was great and exceeded my expectation but the story disappointed me because of the ending. It's more depressing then I would have liked.
I Love To Lean!!! And Audible Helps me do that. My favorite books are classics and biographies, but I like to explore other options as well.
I got this book because it was on sale, and it would be something to listen to at work. I wouldn't consider this the best of John Green's works, but it is overall an entertaining story that seems to be deeply connected to its author. If you read this book at a certain time in your life it may be really impactful, but for most people I think they will leave thinking that was a "neat" story.
I am easily amused!
The classic coming of age story for nerds. Death always included. There are some real gems in his prose. Sure this us the next movie release.
I can't sleep unless I know what happens to my characters in books. I don't care enough about these folks one way or another. too slow. boring. I've always finished books. walking away - this is a first for me.
