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 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!
loved the story but i love happy endings and without them i can't stand the book.
I am a librarian working as a state worker by day and a FB stalker at night. I like thrillers, YA and, and just about anything in between.
I do not know that I would listen to it again. Why? I feel that I got the most out of the story the first time, although I enjoyed it tremendously.
Several. Being from a small community about an hour and a half from where he went to school, I related to a lot of the story. The money in Mountain Brook, the heat that you cannot begin to describe unless you have lived here (Nothing prepares you for the heat.), the deliciousness that is the fried vegetable (or pretty much anything), the southern accents, the towns like New Hope where I taught 5 minutes from. It was being able to relate to the story. Also, the fact that I think we are all searching for The Great Perhaps, and I think that search is never really over.
He brought great accents, the were subtle at times, and he did a great job of making us not sound too much like rednecks.
Yes, I could have listened to this book in one sitting, it was that enjoyable.
This is a great coming-of-age novel for teens through adult. I found myself asking many questions that the author put forth for the characters. This is my favorite book of John Green so far.
I love urban fantasy, paranormal romance, YA, and dystopian. My favorite authors are Ilona Andrews and Kim Harrison.
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!
Lover of life!
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.
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.
