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.

    Story
    "MUST READ!!!!!"
    If you could sum up Looking for Alaska in three words, what would they be?

    Mysterious, Enjoyable, and continuos


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favorite character was Pudge because he was always wanting to know more about Alaska. Never really stopped wondering if he could help her.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes i actual did finish this in one day. I sat in a corner in my room and just kept listening.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "One of John Green's Best"

    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.

    "The author that destroys your soul for a time."

    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...
    Enjoy it.

    "Not so good"

    You may like this book if you are 15 years old. I am not. The narrator does a great job

    Story
    "Great story and voice, but Alaska's voice sounds weird"

    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.

    "Amazing and emotional"
    Would you listen to Looking for Alaska again? Why?

    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.

    "Moving"

    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
