    Description

    Looking For Alaska is John Green’s debut novel. It is about a Florida high school student and is categorized in the young adult fiction genre.

    Summary Of The Book

    Looking For Alaska, John Green’s debut novel was first published in 2005. Looking For Alaska follows the life of Miles Halter, as he leaves Florida to join boarding school in Alabama. He joins Culver Creek, the boarding school, later than usual, as he himself mentions that he is looking for a “Great Perhaps”.

    Among his quirks include memorizing the last words of famous people and the “Great Perhaps” was that of Francois Rabelais. Miles receives the nickname Pudge in school, and though his was a figure that was nothing like the name entailed, it stuck.

    His roommate and friend is Chip, who is the person who introduces him to Alaska Young, the Alaska mentioned in the title of the story. The adventures that they are involved in together cause him to fall in love with Alaska, and the entire book is written in first person. Most of the book is written as a countdown to a specific occurrence, which occurs in the rest of the book and it is easy to gather from the title, what this section would cover.

    Though mostly mature and insightful, readers often get a peek into the sex addled mind of a sixteen year old school student, one who is forever counting the number of layers of clothing separating him from the bare body of the girl he is presently with.

    Looking For Alaska won the 2006 Michael L. Printz Award from the American Library Association. It broke into the New York Times Bestseller list at number 10 in 2012, much after its debut in 2005. The film rights to the book have been sold to Paramount Pictures, though the project hasn’t been greenlighted yet due to lack of sufficient interest.

    WARNING : READING THIS BOOK MAY RESULT IN POSSIBLE HEARTBREAK

    One Hundred and Thirty-six days before Miles Halter met Alaska Young,his life as a non-typical floridan featured friendlessness and was constantly uneventful.

    When Miles meets Alaska,this,like you may expect,changes.You see,Alaska is the kind of girl who loves sex more than a Bishop loves the Bible,and also is the kind of girl who thinks as deep as making a lifetime reading list and 'finding the way out of the labyrinth of suffering' (spoiler: straight and fast),and is totally attractive in ...

    When you find Alaska

    When you find Alaska, tell her that mischief did end up winning the war.Looking for Alaska is not about Alaska; its about telling you to get out of the labyrinth of suffering, and the only way to do so is by forgiving. Forgive Alaska and yourself because you'll never know her last words.

    I go to seek a Great Perhaps.

    This book gave me a hangover when it ended. I now want everyone I know and everyone who matters to read it. Its really enriching because it blends in all the components of self deprecating humour rightly angled. It's funny and it's opaque, its a lot like Catcher in the Rye but Rye never gave me a hangover. I don't miss Rye as much as I miss this book. A definite modern day classic. Watch out for the Eagle. This could be the best y.a.f in a while.

    I fell in love with Alaska

    I fell in love with Alaska. John Green is undoubtedly a genius in narrating.
    In this book, he describes the life of a young teenage girl "Alaska" and her friends. How she came and left like a "hurricane", nd how she left a hole when she walked out.
    A must read for every book lover.
    Flipkart's delivery was great.

    Cummon Buy It!

    I'll be honest with you – I superbly enjoyed Looking for Alaska. First of all, the structure of the novel is great, and most of all, original. To give you an idea, the book starts "One Hundred and Thirty-six Days Before" and ends "One Hundred and Thirty-six Days After."

    With a structure like this, we learn the before and the after of the main event, which is something you don't see in a lot of books. Too often we're just thrown into the middle of a story with no explanation as to how the ch...

    Disappointing

    I was disappointed, not because of the hype but because I thought it had the potential to be an amazing book but didn't quite reach it. I wasn't 'disappointed' but I was surprised because this book had received so many amazing reviews and honestly, I do think it's overrated. If I'd never heard of the book and just picked it up and read it I would have liked it, but after hearing how big of a deal this book was and how popular it was, I was a bit let down. I felt that it dragged out a bit, eve...
