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.

This is an amazing book and the audio version is very well done. It is more than just a young adult's novel. I would recommend it to people of most any age.

About three things I was certain. First, Edward was a vampire. Second, there was a part of him, and I didn't know how dominant that part might be, that thirsted for my blood. And third, I was unconditionally and irrevocably in love with him.

It's gets quite sappy at times, but the story grips me from the start. This is my least favorite of the saga but I still haven't tired of reading/listening to it.

Typical Dan Brown

Overall
3 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 11-05-09

If you like Dan Brown, you will like this book. Typical twists and turns. Not earth shattering but not bad either. I was able to guess the big twist at the end which was a little disappointing. And the ending of the book sort of dragged, but other than that it was a decent listen/read.
