This was just not my favorite John Green novel. It was clunky in places, and I disliked the character, Alaska, enough to want to put it down sometimes. In fact, I did put it down periodically. I usually will race right through a John Green novel as fast I can, because I enjoy them, but in this case I kept forgetting that I hadn't finished it yet. I am happy to note that this is John Green's first published novel, and his writing only gets better from here. ( )

I had a difficult time connecting to the characters in the first half of the story - and I literally mean all the characters. Alaska felt too moody and wrapped up in her emotional baggage, the Colonel was a bit pretentious, and Pudge felt like a pretty "blah" character. Don't get me wrong, I understand why each character was portrayed this way, but it didn't help me feel a personal connection with any of them. Because of that, by the time I got to the halfway point and time started to be marked as going forward from a specific date, it felt a little like it was little too late.

I think this book does a fabulous job of dealing with grief and even of showing the natural stages and progressions of grief. I almost feel like I bumped it up roughly half a star because of that. I also happened to find quite a few quotes and quotations that I really enjoyed throughout the book (for both comical reasons as well as introspective reasons).

I think I'm actually going to keep this one on my "own" shelf for a little while until the story doesn't feel quite so etched in. Might end up bringing it into school for my classroom bookshelf eventually. ( )

*WARNING: SPOILERISH*
It was a while since I cried while reading a book…and I’m not talking about one lonely tear…no I’m talking about the have-to-put-the-book-down-for-a-moment-since-I-can’t-see-anything type of tears…great book but so sad…

Loved all the “last words” quotes since I’m a sort of quote-addict

Miles Halter is a teenager from Florida who likes to read bibliographies and collect last words of famous people. He decided to go to Alabama to finish last two years of his high school education. Miles chooses Culver Creek Preparatory School. His parents are questioning if he decide to go to preparatory school to meet new people and change his boring life style.
Miles instantly became a friend with his roommate Colonel who gave him a nick name Pudge. The Colonel is clever, proud, and financially poor. He is a born leader. Miles got introduced to Alaska Young. She gave his life a new dimension. Alaska is a beautiful, funny, intelligent, and rebellious. Miles falls for Alaska. She became a center of Miles universe.
This book is made using a before and after counting element to build up a grand climax of events. It is an unusual, but effective way of presenting a story. It is a great read. Many teen topics are addressed here: smoking, alcohol consumption and consequences, meaning of life, friendship, belonging, religion, death and dying, grief, and healing.
The author of Looking for Alaska, John Green, made me think about life and our attitude about it. A topic of depression got brought in with Alaska’s behavior. She gave out many times signs that she is suicidal. Her attitude about dying and her struggle with her mother’s passing away was never addressed in a productive way. Her depression was not taken seriously. Consequences are tragic and unbearable.

Miles's narration is alive with sweet, self-deprecating humor, and his obvious struggle to tell the story truthfully adds to his believability.

How will I ever get out of this labyrinth!
If only we could see the string of consequences that result from our smallest actions. But we can’t know better until knowing is useless.
When adults say, "Teenagers think they are invincible" with that sly, stupid smile on their faces, they don’t know how right they are. We need never be hopeless, because we are never irreparably broken. We think that we are invincible because we are. We cannot be born, and we cannot die. Like all energy, we can only change shapes and sizes and manifestations. They forget that when they are old. They get scared of losing and failing.
You spend your whole life stuck in the labyrinth, thinking about how you’ll escape it one day, and how awesome it will be, and imagining that future keeps you going, but you never do it. You just use the future to escape the present.
When you're walking at night, do you ever get creeped out and even though it's silly and embarrassing you just want to run home?
