Looking for alaska- John Green


Summary: from back of the book
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 (Franois 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.

Review:

Unique
I have never read anything like Looking for Alaska. I really had no idea what this book was about at first and was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed reading it. The main characters Pundge, Alaska, and the Colonel were extremely interesting to read about. Not only the characters but the events that happen and things they get themselves into are amazing as well. John Green did an excellent job writing this, I was hooked the entire time. Looking for Alaska is definitely worth the read, I recommend this to just about anyone and everyone who enjoys a good book.

I enjoyed this book too. The cover was different and I loved it. And the story has some pretty funny parts but all in all it is a good book. Nice review :)

My English class has been assigned to start a blog and I have but I have also started another blog of my own and part of that is well kind of due to your blog. You have inspired me to start a real blog of my own and I love doing it. check out my blog at http://englishblogcm.blogspot.com/ its more about fashion and pop culture but I'm starting to look at doing books as well. Your blog is great and full of really amazing books I loved Looking for Alaska and Love You Hate you Miss You. two really good books. Thanks again.
