First drink. First prank. First friend. First love. Last words.   

Miles Halter is fascinated by famous last words - and tired of his safe life at home. He leaves for boarding school to seek what the dying poet François Rabelais called the “Great Perhaps”. Much awaits Miles at Culver Creek, including Alaska Young, who will pull Miles into her labyrinth and catapult him into the Great Perhaps.   

Looking for Alaska brilliantly chronicles the indelible impact one life can have on another. A modern classic, this stunning debut marked number one best-selling author John Green’s arrival as a groundbreaking new voice in contemporary fiction.

Commentaires

"What sets this novel apart is the brilliant, insightful, suffering but enduring voice of Miles Halter." (Chicago Tribune)

"A gem of modern literature." (Guardian)

"What sings and soars in this gorgeously told tale is Green’s mastery of language and the sweet, rough edges of Pudge’s voice." (Kirkus)

I am concussed dot-dot-dot

This novel has been my favorite since the moment I finished it the first time. I've bought the anniversary edition and have read it at least three times. So when I saw that Wil Wheaton, my favorite actor, would be narrating my favorite book I literally cried. His performance in Ready Player one practically save the book and it was amazing here as well. he definitely has a knack for this stuff.
John's writing style is by far the most philosophical I've ever seen. It shows in his Vlogbrothers videos and it shows here. Awkward moments, new friends, love, pranks, heartbreak, and quite a bit of mystery. If you know John well enough and his love for Catcher in the Rye you might be worried but, thankfully, there's only mild teen angst. All of which are seen in other novels bit they blend so nicely here. It feels so real.
I believe there are moments in this book for everyone. Something that everyone will need. Maybe not the whole book for some. But I can attest, without a doubt, that there are many moments where I am the mother f****** fox.🦊

Loved it

There's something very charming and warm about Wil Wheaton's narration voice that allows this book and really any book he narrates to be so inviting and relatable. The content of this story was great. It had me guessing where the plot would turn next, and the complexity and unpredictability of Alaska's character is what kept me reeled in. While I kind of guessed what the twist would be that would resolve the main conflict at the end of the book, I definitely did not see the second twist coming. Satisfying ending and great story.

I liked it

I listened to this because it is our exchange student's favorite book. I wanted to have something to talk to her about when she first came to live with us. I can see the attraction for teens. Lots and lots of foul language. I despised that part of it, but it was a good story.

Fantastic narrative

Great narration but the one time where the movie (series) was actually better than book

fantastic book!

I love that in the book the focus on how much miles is infatuated with Alaska rather than the movie

great book

I have listened to several John green novels and this is one of my favourites (together with the fault in our stars). I liked the snapshot-like storytelling and the voice acting, and the characters are just so relatable.
