Product description

Review

“Miles's narration is alive with sweet, self-deprecating humor, and his obvious struggle to tell the story truthfully adds to his believability.” School Library Journal

“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.” Kirkus

“This is an amazing first novel by a writer who is young enough to vividly remember his powerful years of high school and he expertly turns remembrance into story.” Children’s Literature

“The novel's chief appeal lies in Miles's well-articulated lust and his initial excitement about being on his own for the first time.” Publishers Weekly

4.0 out of 5 stars One of the best Teenage Fiction
By Krishan Taneja on 8 October 2019
Looking for Alaska is the first novel written by John Green. It is one of the best teenage fiction books I have read so far. This book is banned in schools in most of the countries due to profanity and sexually explicit scenes.

John Green is the author of other bestsellers novels including The fault in our stars, Paper Towns and is quite popularly known for his teenage fiction books.

Miles Halter is the main character of the story who has an unusual passion for learning peoples last words.
Alaska young is the other character who is young wild and free.
Do read this book to find out how their lives affects each other.

4.0 out of 5 stars Buy it! Worth and short read!
By Rossy Veloshka Dourado on 21 June 2020
This book is from the ‘Young Adult’ genre, which is about a boy with a unusual interest named ‘Miles Halter’ AKA ‘Pudge’ from Florida and his school mates ‘Chipper’ AKA ‘The colonel’, ‘Takumi’, ‘Lara’ and ‘ALASKA’ at this new school ‘Culver Creek’ in Alabama, which ‘Pudge’ joins in the hopes of seeking the ‘Great Perhaps’.

MY VIEW
I was surprised as to how much I loved and enjoyed this book. After reading ‘The Fault in Our Stars’ this was my second novel by ‘John Green’. I had no idea of what to expect but I ended this book within 3 days, and ended feeling a sense of how lightly I myself take my life, how uncertain and fickle moments are. This book has left a deep mark on me with its optimistic approach.
I also loved how Pudge’s parents support him, though they don’t understand him completely.

4.0 out of 5 stars Teenage tragedy!
By Viraj Rasane on 29 February 2020
had heard a lot about this particular book and so many people suggested it to me, so I finally got to reading it and finally knew exactly what all the fuss was about!
This is my second read by John Green and my God, is that man talented! Reading his work feels like lying in the grass and watching millions of stars overhead beside your favorite human.
And I have a soft corner for teenage romance. Because teenage is the wonderful period when most of the secrets of the mechanisms of the world get revealed to you. You are going through so much at the same time and still you grow out of it.
And now getting to the core, that is this awesome book. The protagonist is Miles Halter, an introvert with lack of friends in school who finds himself in a tight group of friends when he joins Culver Creek. Chip (the Colonel) is his roommate. He meets Alaska Young, thanks to the Colonel and falls hopelessly in love with her. Alaska is impulsive, reckless, moody and breathtakingly beautiful and the thing I loved the most about her is that she is a profound bookworm. She loves to plan pranks and include Mike, the Colonel, Lara and Takumi in her endeavors. One day, out of the blue, she dies a mysterious death. Miles and others are left to figure out of it was a mere accident or a pre-planned suicide.
I liked the first half of the book but the second half was a bit boring. Overall it was good.
