I really enjoyed reading this book from John Green. After reading one review I nearly didn’t read it, but it’s more than just a simple love story between teenagers! I found the way, how the story was put together and little clues where hidden, was fantastic. It was captivating to read and it gave you something to think about.
A compelling, tragic and humorous read. Characters are believable and even familiar in the highs and lows of being a teenager juggling how and where to fit in. The strength of friendship, forgiveness and breaking the rules but not your word.
At first I was skeptical about reading this book, it was recommended to me by a friend and it's not really the normal genera that I read, but once I divulged into the witty humor and the deep meaningful descriptions of the lives of the characters, I just couldn't put the book down. Definitely, definitely, Definitely read this book. Just take a leap of faith in the ratings and broaden your book repertoire :)
This novel is another great example of John Green's ability to write in such a way as to express the angst of teenagers with the depth of knowledge and understanding about life, hidden in literature that so aptly guides our lives if only we look at any age.
Loved this book. I loved the way John Green doesn't dumb down his characters. He expects his readers to be smart - and we are. I loved the complexity of the characters and the way they navigate themselves through difficulties of being a teenager. Highly recommend the read. You'll find yourself thinking about this book long after you're done.
I enjoyed this book mainly on the way it is written and the characters. The setting out of the book is so interesting because I have never seen a book written in this way before and the characters were amazingly written with so much depth which helped paint the picture of the appearance of the characters, their stories and how they are.
I highly suggest you read this book if you haven't :)
Just like The Fault In Our Stars, John's book: "Looking For Alaska" was beautifully written. I loved each and every character within the book, and I truly loved watching Pudge's affection for Alaska grow. I would definitely recommend this book for a young teenager. I am definitely going to re-read this book at a later date. Thank you, John Green, for being so individual and interesting.
