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. Apart from the numerous awards, this book has also been translated into 15 languages.
There are 573 Looking for Alaska quotes on Goodreads. That's usually a good sign. Yet, it doesn't necessarily mean that everyone loves it. Honestly, I probably would have love it - a lot - had it been written when I was a teen. But since that time has come and gone, I can't help feeling pessimistic about how I feel about it. It's a well written coming of age story. Good characterization. It's got humor and it's full of wit. The plot isn't new and the story, a bit cliche. I only started to like the story once I got to the 'After' of the book. It is as if things started to only make sense once you get to that part. The strangest feeling I had was once I reached the end of the book. The story lingered in my mind far longer than I had expected. Overall, I think, if you can get over the bumps at the beginning, you might find that...it IS worthy of your time.
