    “Imagining the future is a kind of nostalgia. (...) 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.”

    The Alaska of the title is a maddening, fascinating, vivid girl seen through the eyes of Pudge...What sings and soars in this gorgeously told tale is Green’s mastery of language and the sweet, rough edges of Pudge’s voice. Girls will cry and boys will find love, lust, loss and longing in Alaska’s vanilla-and-cigarettes scent.

  • Be prepared for a rollercoaster of emotions that Looking for Alaska brings, because although the book is quite short, it is one of the best books I have read and I would recommend it to everyone.

  • The book is so well written and hilarious but also heart-breaking at the same time. The characters are so interesting and well presented, it's almost like they're real. I would recommend this book to anybody who loves reading as it is excellent!

  • This is the first book I have read by John Green and would love to read his others. I would recommend this book mostly to girls in love or teenagers into emotional journeys.

  • With comical dialogue and some of the most identifiable characters I have encountered, Alaska, if nothing else, is a pleasure to read...The humor of the first half is equally balanced by the melancholoy of the second...Green manipulates our emotions to drive home philosophical questions about life and death.
