This is the second book I've read by John Green so far (the first being
The Fault in Our Stars) and I loved it every bit as much as Looking for
Alaska. Gosh I don't even know what to say about this book, I'm finding
it quite difficult to come up with reasons why I liked it so much, which
seems to be common among people who rate books they loved.
loved the characters, all of them, particularly Alaska. I found her to
be quite intriguing. But I will say that it was a little irritating that
she would get super cranky at times, and it was never really discovered
what exactly she was so cranky about. And then there's the main plot
point in this book which wasn't 100% resolved, which left me feeling
kind of an empty void, but at the same time it fits in well with the
story, it would have been unrealistic to get the answers to all the
questions that were asked. Often times when someone is put into that
experience, they are left with a lot of questions, that can never be
answered but will still tear you up inside. However I feel like not
knowing kind of drew me closer to the characters and everything they
were going through.
This book is definitely one that will have
you questioning a lot about life, and why we are the way that we are.
It's something I think about from time to time anyways, but this book
brought me right back into that mind setting. Very thought provoking,
and just an altogether amazing read.
