Probably the best teen book with a male lead that I've read. The book feels like something that could have actually happened, which is rare (even among the other books *John Green wrote*). Describes some emotions that are very real and resonate with things in my own life. ( )

Looking for Alaska was so incredible real so much so that it was actually hard to read at points. I laughed, I cried and I lived through this story. I had already had my "coming of age" years before I read this book but I could absolutely empathize with what these characters were going through. All of John Green's books will forever have a special place in my heart but this one was my first and it still resonates the most with me. This was my first re-read of the book since I read it when it originally came out in 2006 and it still stands the test of time. ( )

This was a beautiful read- tragic, but deeply compelling. The last chapter is absolutely perfect and clinches the novel. ( )

Definitely a book I must own. Although Alaska has so many problems she doesn't let them take control of her life and that is an admirable thing. Pudge is a great main character because we can relate to the dilemmas he faces. Overall, loved their sense of humor and the 'last words' were an interesting topic. Loved the 'almost' relationship Pudge and Alaska had and I think they would be a great couple. ( )

A moving coming-of-age story. It discusses so many issues that teenagers deal with, drugs, sex, love, friendship and so much more. But mostly the story is about how we come to terms with our own mortality. This is one of those books that makes you ponder life and for those older readers like myself is a chance to reminisce about the past.

This is my first John Green novel and I am sure not my last. I liked his writing style and the way in which he dealt with the various topics. Recommend. ( )

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?
