Looking for Alaska

Last book I've read...

Looking for Alaska (2005)
Author: John Green
Rating: 5/5

“Sometimes I don't get you,' I said.
She didn't even glance at me. She just smiled toward the television and said, 'You never get me. That's the whole point.”

At last, I've read my most anticipated novel out of John Green's work. I've been hearing a lot of buzz about "Looking for Alaska", but the title is a bit misleading, and made me think of stories about Pilgrims(literally travelling!), until I accidentally saw the book. I actually fell in love first with the cover, and soon with the poignant story of friendship, and love. A thought-provoking novel that was creatively written.(very promising!)

Book Description:
Before. Miles "Pudge" Halter's whole existence has been one big nonevent, and his obsession with famous last words has only made him crave the "Great Perhaps" (François Rabelais, poet) even more. Then he heads off to the sometimes crazy, possibly unstable, 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, who is an event unto herself. She pulls Pudge into her world, launches him into the Great Perhaps, and steals his heart.

After. Nothing is ever the same.
