Looking for Alaska – John Green

| GOODREADS | AMAZON | MY RATING: ♥ ♥99561 |

Goodreads synopsis: Before. Miles “Pudge” Halter is done with his safe life at home. His whole life has been one big non-event, and his obsession with famous last words has only made him crave “the Great Perhaps” even more (Francois Rabelais, poet). He heads off to the sometimes crazy and anything-but-boring world of Culver Creek Boarding School, and his life becomes the opposite of safe. Because down the hall is Alaska Young. The gorgeous, clever, funny, sexy, self-destructive, screwed up, and utterly fascinating Alaska Young. She is an event unto herself. She pulls Pudge into her world, launches him into the Great Perhaps, and steals his heart. Then. . . .
After. Nothing is ever the same.

My thoughts: Well, I’m so glad to be done with this book and i dont think that is a positive feeling. I totally understand that young adult, tortured souls, great minds and ideas and that feeling that you will never learn to know the light and love you only read about in books. Come on, I have been a teenager to. But after reading this book I definitely feel that I’m more near a death of old age than my teenage years.

The book is about Alaska. A girl I really do not like and the whole story is told by another boy that feels like a narrator than a real person. The whole story is off and it was really the Colonel who made me keep reading because I really liked him.

I have trouble seeing the point with the book. Is it to discuss religion and afterlife? Friendship? School and education? Maybe it is about that life really sucks sometimes and you need to take it as it is and keep going forward. Straight and fast!

  1. Thanks for your review. This book has been sitting on my shelf waiting to be read. I think I will try a different one because I definitely don’t want to feel old!

    1. You may feel different than me about the book, but I talked with a friend who had read it and she felt the same. Not a good thing. 😛
