Much awaits Miles at Culver Creek, including Alaska Young. Clever, funny, screwed-up, and dead sexy, Alaska will pull Miles into her labyrinth and catapult him into the Great Perhaps.Looking for Alaska brilliantly chronicles the indelible impact one life can have on another. A stunning debut, it marks John Green's arrival as an important new voice in contemporary fiction.

Most Helpful

A great read however not my favourite JG book.

What made the experience of listening to Looking for Alaska the most enjoyable?

The chapters are very distinct and each set a particular mood. The way the book is written allows the reader to enter a very similar mindset to the protagonist; creating a wave of emotions that chop and change throughout the novel.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Looking for Alaska?

The thoughts and reflections that "Pudge" has 136 days after.

What aspect of Jeff Woodman’s performance might you have changed?

The accents of the Southern characters seemed very similar and at times the speech felt slightly rushed.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

She loved mysteries so much she became one.

Any additional comments?

This is a fantastic read but I didn't feel the connection to the characters that I have felt reading other John Green books. In a lot of instances everyone apart from Alaska Young felt somewhat under-developed.
