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.

    I love urban fantasy, paranormal romance, YA, and dystopian. My favorite authors are Ilona Andrews and Kim Harrison.

    Story
    "I couldn't stop listening"

    I loved the characters in this book. They are flawed yet strong, cerebral yet insecure. They are all of us. The story progresses sometimes a bit slow and while it can be predictable, it's more about how the characters get to where they need to be. It's about the journey more than the destination. This is a story of love, fear, joy and loss. The author explores how we deal with fears that we will never shake and what we believe in to cope with the unpredictability of life. You will never go wrong with a John Green book!
    I think the narrator was a very good fit. He did a great job. I listened to the book in one day. I didn't want to stop! Give it a go!
    Happy listening!

    Any additional comments?

    Another hit by Green. He has a way of capturing the innocence and heartbreak of young love and coming of age. This was another great listen.

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

    "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.
