Okay, so, I'm sure most of you have read it and can understand when I say that that book was horribly beautiful and tragically brilliant. John Green did it again. It's been a few months since I've read it, but there are parts that stick out in mind, as if I only read it yesterday. The characters, for one thing, are gorgeously written and they are people you can relate to. Looking for Alaska includes all the elements of a typical teenager life; friends, school, love, smoking, drinking, breaking rules, having fun and the confusion we seem to face daily.
I absolutely loved this books. It's interesting to read from a boy's perspective. Pudge seems to be the only normal and ordinary kid in the books. But travels this journey through life that mainly focuses on the very wild and completely screwed up Alaska Young. She is a character that I would probably hate in real life but when you get to know her and all her craziness you can see that she is her own person. And I respect that.
In the book there is the "before section" and the "after". After what? Well, that's part of the story.When I was reading the after section I could barely see the page as tears streamed down my face. I think I almost cried as much as I did with TFiOS. -well, not quite as much. I mean, I don't think you can get a more heart-strangling book!
