Looking For Alaska is a powerful book with themes of friendship, love, and losing a loved a one. This book is great for children 13 and older as is consists of talk about sex, drugs, and violence. Looking For Alaska is a powerful book as readers will be heart broken in the end but with take away a positive message about friendship. The characters come to life as they are all so realistic which could be easily compared to people in the readers life. This story is an easy read and readers will have a hard time putting it down.

I absolutely loved this book! I have been wanting to read it for about 6 months before I actually bought it and when I finally did I found it as such a great read. I really recommend for just about any young adult unless you have a problem with curse words then you should probably steer away form it. But if you can handle curse words then you should definitely go check it out!

Had the book saved for months and didn't know what to do with it. It didn't really interest me at first. I didn't understand the cover at first, but reading the book things start to make more sense.
Miles's point of view is what defined the book. Most books have a girl's point of view of the story, so we don't get to feel the boy's feelings. I liked his obsession with people's last words, it made him unique compared to all the other characters. People say to stay away from bad influences, but John Green has made a point in understanding
why they are that was and it's not always bad (but it isn't exactly good). What I didn't like about Miles is that he gave aways and started doing what his friends always did. I would have accepted him sometimes smoking or drinking, it's normal, but he wasn't suppose to do it always. He never had a good reason to do it except being accepted.
My favorite character is definitely Alaska. Not because she was Mile's love, but because she was always unpredictable. She did everything that one would have thought that that was not her style. She stood up for women's rights and was against of sexism. Not like many girls, she didn't grow up in a happy family, she was somehow scared of going back. To the whole world she was another. Despite her smoking and drinking, she was always there for the people she cared of, after realizing an error she shouldn't have made. But sometimes she was just a b****. I accept this because sometimes it's what we tend to be without realizing (not all).
Part of the book I liked the most was the Best/Worst Day game during camping because I got to know more about the characters and how they came to the boarding school. Otherwise, the characters where to empty because they didn't have their own story and I couldn't understand their way of being. Worst part was the After part because Miles and Colonel (his roommate) felt guilty and Miles didn't want to know where it was all real or fake with Alaska.
I thought I had this book figured out, and like the summary said ... 'after: nothing is never the same'. I just wasn't ready for this. And when it finished, it was like 'POOF. And you're gone.'. I gave it 4/5 rating because I hated the ending. It was just not a good way to end it in an essay. Miles didn't really get past the whole situation. And nothing had a concrete ending. It sounded like a to be continued and there isn't going to be one. Otherwise the story was intriguing. I don't read stand alone novels quite often and it didn't dissapoint me. Recommended if you liked TFIOS by John Green and you all who would like to change a bit from normal reading.

John Green has written The Fault in Our Stars, An Abundance of Katherines, Paper Towns, and Let it Snow along with Looking for Alaska. I choose to read the book Looking for Alaska because I had read a couple of paragraphs from this book before hand and thought it sounded very interesting. This book is mainly about finding the meaning of life and about making every day count because you don’t know when it could be your last.I loved this book very much. I think it has the perfect amount of teen love and the tiniest bit of action involved in it, it’s perfect. For me, it was a pretty easy read. I read it in the amount of two days and it didn’t take long in those two days at all. I would recommend this book for most teenagers. I think it could be good for a boy or girl. It is from a boys point of view so I think that could attract the male readers but it is a book about love so therefore it would be good for a female as well.

Before reading this book know who you are as a person. Have your own set morals and thinking abou the purpose of life. Because if you don't this book will do it for you.
