Thanks for telling us about the problem. Return to Book Page. Preview — Looking for Alaska by John Green. Looking for Alaska 4. He heads off to the sometimes crazy and anything-but-boring world of Culver Creek Boarding School, and his life becomes the opposite of safe. Because down the hall is Alaska Young.

The gorgeous, clever, funny, sexy, self-destructive, screwed up, and utterly fascinating Alaska Young. She is an event unto herself. She pulls Pudge into her world, launches him into the Great Perhaps, and steals his heart. Nothing is ever the same. Paperback , pages.

Those who have read it and think that it is just okay, and then the people that absolutely love this book. This is one of my favorite books, and I strongly recommend it if you are into John Green books: How is the book for a 12 year old? I want to buy it but am not sure if its good or not.

Kallee Buske I agree. This book should probably be read an adult beforehand. I am 17 and I just read it and I was a bit uncomfortable with some of the content. I …more I agree. See all questions about Looking for Alaska…. Lists with This Book. Apr 01, Cristina rated it did not like it Shelves: I didn't like this book. This is not what I expected to be.

I hoped to find a book in the style of Stargirl or something novel and what did I find? A bunch of teens who try to ease their anxieties in their not-so-original vices and a sudden drama which leads to nonsense talking.

All hiding, of course, in a couple of beautiful quotes that wrap all the 'inspiring-sites' on the internet, the reason I got to the book and I bet that you too. Boring, it was so so boring. I didn't like the characters. Alaska was unbearable oh no wait, she was awesome if you were a character too: The main character was a cronic linnet, who got lost in his difficulties mostly, not having a girlfriend, such a big problem you see and searching The Great Perhaps, thing he forgot to do so easily so What a waste of time!

It's great if you loved the book but I didn't. Maybe at this time of my life I would express myself in a different way but when I wrote this I was convinced of all I said before.

And I loved some of them, like really did. It's sad that Looking for Alaska didn't work for me but I think it is wonderful that it did for you. Not so many books can inspire that kind of passion: View all comments. Mar 30, Patrick rated it it was amazing Shelves: My assistant Amanda has been a John Green fan for ages, which is one of the reasons I decided to start giving his stuff a read.

I decided to start here because it was one of his first books. After I finished this book, I went to her and asked, "Are all of John Green's books going to leave me feeling like I've had a hole kicked straight through my guts? I mentioned a particular scene in my first book. His scene is more central to his book. But even so, yeah. It was kinda like that. View all 50 comments. Sep 11, karen rated it really liked it Shelves: I did not cry. But, John Green still managed to hit me where it really hurt.

And it was awesome. View all 17 comments. That's me, realizing I was about to give a big one star to a super popular book on Goodreads. It didn't stop me. This book was beyond stupid. Miles is a little nerd boy from Florida, he is going away to boarding school hoping for a new life or maybe his "Great Perhaps". The Great Perhaps comes from a minute reference to some poet. Thrown in to this book to make it all edgy and shit. Once he gets there his roommate the requisite character that is so poor but super smart befriends him.

The That's me, realizing I was about to give a big one star to a super popular book on Goodreads. The Colonel aka Chip takes Miles now known as Pudge under his wing and now he has friends!

Including the super special Alaska, she is the beautiful, cool and allusive girl. She is moody and spontaneous. Of course, the boys all love her milkshake.. It's from the book. John Green, you have enough dang money that if you are going to write southern characters at least try, TRY!!!

You just put every stupid stereotype known into the characters that are southern for this book. You made them all sound stupid. If they didn't go to this wonderful boarding school that erased their accent they sounded like ignorant hicks. I hate to tell you honey, but last time I check Florida is also in the south.

They have accents too. You lost a star just for not taking the two seconds to research southern speech. I've lived here my whole life and I have never heard someone speak like you had several characters speaking. This book glorified the whole "oh I'm so dark" "don't you want to be me" shit. Here's a message for you. First, please note there are spoilers.

However, the spoilers aren't really spoilers since it doesn't affect your enjoyment or lack of enjoyment if you know the big secret. Nevertheless, a helpful few have pointed out that I have spoilers and I didn't mark them.

So are you happy now? Ok, now to another criticism. All right I'll bite. Yes, Alaska is flawed. Green show how Alaska was flawed and resolve either her flaws or how others deal with her flaws if she chose not to change her ways?

Still not buying my argument? Let's say for the sake of argument, Alaska was a puppy abuser. She goes around kicking puppies. Is her puppy kicking dealt with?

He was one of the good ones in the jr. I remember when he was demonized to all hell after he stole the car and escaped with some gangbanger kid. He was always fair and in one particular incident backed me up for calling out a jr. Staff member for beating on a thirteen year old who had been sent there for being too fat. Tell him Myles from Wisdom says hello. Straight shooter and solid guy. My son Gabriel was there in He is almost 32 years old and is just now starting to talk about what happened at Spring Creek, which is why I am just now doing research on what others experiences were at this facility.

He may have known your son. I will ask him. You are more than welcomed to contact me privately at greene gmail. I will be glad to put you in contact with my son so you can discuss with him directly. I hope he hires a lawyer soon. He was indeed traumatized by wwasps. I remember Joshua somewhat. That place was complete hell. I remember when I finally made it to jr. They saved them all in there files on polaroids. I was only 15 at the time and was seeing that stuff.

Seriously hope everyone involved in that places burns. One day they will have to answer for the things they did. Susan … I was in springcreek from to You are a testament to the endurance of a restless spirit haha. I felt like I abandoned you man…still haunted by that shit. I wonder whatever happened to Atfield? Anyway, just be good man, and if you ever want to, you know how to get ahold of me.

On a side note, in that place the duality of man became very apparent. It was a bad experience because I learned to see the good side of otherwise evil people and empathize which has cost me a lot, but it also taught me to not be afraid of bullies. In fact it seems like it already has. Anyway brother John, you were the guy who carried me through that time. We leaned on each other a bit.

Continue to be happy, take care of the young ones and the wife, and be thankful. Know as well that I would do anything for you bro. All in all it is all as it is supposed to be. Merry Christmas homie… I self correct… I mean uhh and happy new year. I was in the program from I was in unity family. Let me start off by saying this place was shit!! I spent most of my time I the Hobbit and did not pass level there my parents were brain washed,and my family turned against me I have deep anger issues from this place aam glad it is shut down.

Brandon, I was always in intervention. Everyday for a year and a half. My name is Nick Theriault. Do you know it? I was in Quest family. I was in Spring Creek from was the only person I am aware of to be kicked out of PC3, as a level 6- for being honest about my home contract. I was also the youngest on the facility, for I was a fresh 13 year old. My parents then sent me to a southern baptist program in Kentucky for my junior year.

After that, I was sent back to scl for my last year That place did way more harm than good. There was absolutely no one qualified to look after us.

Another side note- my reason for being there was because I did not like my step dad and argued with my parents constantly. So happy that place was shut down. No one deserved that treatment and lies. Chelsey, I was in Serenity family in I remember you, I believe. Did you have braces?

God what a miserable time. Poor Miss Keely, I will never forget her. What an awesome lady. Hi, I was in Serenity as well. I think I remember Chelsea…. That place was horrible…. I was one of the few who got away. When I arrived i saw brainwashed kids everywhere I looked. There was no way in hell I was going to become another statistic. After extensive prepping and planning. I finally made my escape it was a cold Novemeber night about 2am.

After running all night in the freezing cold my sweat was frozen to my beanie ,I was caught the next morning around 10am. They put out a search party for me…police, volunteers, staff ect…. I was sent there when i was 13 as well for almost two years i was the youngest girl there too im now 28 and feel as if that place ruined my life and changed the path my life i wished ended up.. I was still a virgin when i went there.. That got taken from me.. I started my period all alone and was laughed at by other girls.

I was in the family Charity and never made it past level 2. The twins gave me level 3 just so i could go to a seminar and see my mom in hopes that it would calm me down but it only made things worse.. I was in and out of worksheets daily and spent countless hours nights days and weeks in the hobit. I was molested and beaten up and learned things i would of never dreamnt of knowing how to do or been around people like that until my mother sent me there. Pretty much just to get me out of her hair so she could drink and party honestly.

I have ptsd, severe anxiety, insomnia, intermittent explosive disorder andb severe depression and i believe its all from there.

I wouldnt wish that place upon my enemym Chaffin eventually had enough of me and so did every one else i guess and tried to make my mom send me to Jamaica where they had no child labor laws but my mom just brought me home instead..

Made up a home contract followed it for 2 weeks once i got home at the age of 15 and of course got bored and went out to find older kids.. And within 5 months of being home i was doing drugs and pregnant and getting into physical fights with my mother.

That place ruined me. Sure it sucks not beig able to eat or watch tv when you want and you have to follow a bunch of bullshit rules. It sucks but it is what it is you make the best with what life throws at you. I am totally against peer on peer displine because upper level assholes are corrupt as hell.

But as far as the staff go I had nothing but great staff member Chaffin and Cameron did walk around like kings but they were harmless. Those kids deserved that, they asked for it. We never deserved that nor the awful mental and emotional repercussions that still longer and influence us today. Cameron, Chaffin, Ken Kay and all the rest deserve to rot in a special place in their Mormon hell for child abusers.

Be prepared boys and girls…Roger is as dumb and sadistic as it gets. He is too stupid to be evil…but the results are the same.

And to think she used to be my favorite cousin…shame shame. Maybe we should start a program for kids where they actually receive help and guidance rather than classic Maoist brainwashing and abuse. Hell, I would bet just about everyone on this site is more qualified than these Utards…sorry Utahns.

Robert Lichfield can barely read. I was 15 years old. They had just opened Spring Creek Lodge in Montana. I remember her pulling over at what I thought was a Motel 6 to ask for directions. She went in while I stayed in the car. After about 15 minutes, I went in to see what was taking her so long. I saw her at the desk and heard the door auto lock behind me and two staff members grabbed me.

I knew I was fucked. I had arrived at Brightway! I stayed at Brightway for about 2 weeks before being flown to Montana. Cameron became my new guardian and made that perfectly clear when I got there. There were only about 20 boys at Spring Creek when I arrived… we were the first and opened that damn hell hole like prisoners opening up a new yard.

No one knew what to expect. The youngest of our group was Cliff, he was only 11 or 12 years old. The oldest was Jay at One by one, we all watched new kids come in. They were all Mormons and tried to push that religion on us. They beat us, starved us, humiliated us and made us walk through 10 degree weather in our boxers and flip flops.

Kids trying to commit suicide was a weekly issue. Jake was really a quite person and Eugene was just the opposite. I kept my mouth shut and the next night they were gone. They were found and brought back a few days later, and were beaten within an inch of their lives. I was there for one year and witnessed everything including kids trying to kill themselves. I was wild myself, but after being dropped on my face in the gravel and getting my lip and teeth busted by staff an ex Marine named Randy , I kept a low key.

I witnessed a staff member force a 13 year old boy to give him oral sex in the bathroom late one night when everyone was asleep… WTF! Staff worked us like slave labor chopping down trees. They made us build fort style fences around the staff cabins and lay rock gravel pits.

We were thrown in freezing ponds infested with who knows what just for fun. A few times a week I would help in the kitchen making food and washing dishes. I stole a sharp kitchen knife for protection. I kept it on me at all times. I was 15 years old and literally in survival mode ready to kill any jr. I just wanted to survive and not stand out. The more attention I created, the more chances that my knife would be discovered. I was never the same after leaving the program. The young, free spirited, charismatic kid that came there never got to go back home.

He was replaced with a paranoid, confused kid who was obsessed with protecting himself. I could no longer socialize with kids in my normal high school, and it destroyed any chance of a normal high school experience.

I lived life through my headphones and skateboard. While most kids our age were learning about respect from their fathers, how to flirt with girls and going to proms, we missed all of that. It is now and I have been incarcerated in federal prison since early , ironically for felony possession of a fire arm.

I will be released at the end of this year. I am writing this from a prison cell and it is being submitted on my behalf by another party who told me about this site. Jake and Eugene were awesome! Jake was the guy that told me: Smile and nod…fuck em later on. Unfortunately your story is very common and many of us who came out of their were actual threats to society where before we were just snotty little bastards.

They meant to make us weak and docile through shock. Instead it just made us a little crazy to varying degrees. I have a burning hatred in my heart that I want gone badly. I have a self destructive sort of apathy that only struck me after seeing the shit that went on there.

I lost my fear of consequences, rules, or really even death in the real world because none of it seemed to compare in measure to the pain I had already witnessed and experienced.

We who were there know…and it will never go away. Live well and prosper when you finish your stint. Remember that we have an advantage over the unenlightened masses, we know real suffering…therefore we can better recognize real happiness. Be happy, you deserve it. If you want to have whoever it is who posts for you write me and I will gladly continue corresponding with you.

Sometimes talking to those who were there can be the best medicine. Whatever you do, take it out on the Utarded Mormon mafia running these places…not yourself. Please contact me at greene gmail. Did you know my son, Zach? He was from Ohio and was there about a year before going to Czech.

I am sick reading all of these comments. I thought I was doing the right thing. I feel awful for all of you having to go through all of this. Anita I wish your family the best. So many names seem familiar now but long forgotten since I always felt cheated out of that time of life I missed, that life they often preached was over because we had ruined it self affirming prophecies and pseudo self help jargon but I am blessed for the perspective it gives on how short life is.

Peace out, as Zach would say! No one gets what happened at SCL. My parents never paid attention to me much less tried to listen. They paid the staff there to abuse me.

Thats the mentality of my parents, and I cant go back any where near them. I watch as my other siblings get love but theres never enough left over for me. All I get is judgement and no matter what I am wrong and it is my fault. If I breath then it is my fault. Thats it, Im sick of breathing now. If my brother ever reads this I hope he gets as far away from the abuse that is the family. I cannot imagine the betrayal you kids felt, having your parents trick and abandon you. I would be surprised if any of you have any kind of contact with your parents.

I found your site after reading a cautionary review on Amazon. He says in his book that he worked there for 10 years. Sorry about your luck, Mr. I had friends in high school that were taken to places like this and wondered what they went through. Anyway, I just wanted to drop a note to tell each of you that my heart goes out to you, and I will be praying for you. Please know that God loves you and will forgive anything and everything you did back then or have done since; all you have to do is ask.

In all fairness, Mike Linderman was one of the only people affiliated with that program with a college degree, and a decent heart. He helped me get out of there. In fact, in order to even speak to Linderman, your parents needed to pay more. Linderman was not in the same league of evil. Curious that he wrote a book and actually admits to being a wwasp employee. One would think anyone would understand the backlash of that move. Mike was awesome, and from what I know he was not there at the end… I believe he had moved on…but I graduated in … and am nor fully sure.

I will say, he is the reason I grew up wantingg to help others. Destiny family 99 — I just wanted to reach out to the guys I was at the Lodge with. I was there in 97 when there were just a few of us. I was the guy that tried to break out with Jake and Eugene but I didnt make it out the window because Jake made a ton of noise.

Please feel free to contact me at keelingkasey gmail. Now one thing begs to question for me. During the program, I remember being told of Wwasps sterling success rate. There have been a disproportionate amount of suicides and other tragedies endured by wwasp detainees. Where is the success? To me, the sickness that afflicts the hearts of people like Lambert is a true testament to the snake oil our parents purchased in the name of trying to reach their children. We were all changed in these places to a varying degree, but does anyone really think these places actually helped?

I am a parent of a child that I sent to Spring Creek. The reason I sent my child to Spring Creek was because she quit school in her Junior year and was completely disrespectful and running with trouble. We ended up in court and i was trying to find a better place for my daughter than our local system.

I found the program on line and called a phone number. The person I spoke with sold me the school. I promised my daughter that I would bring her home as soon as she completed her schooling. I did keep my promise and removed her before she completed the program. I am truly sorry that I sent my daughter there. I have apologized to her but not sure she really forgives me. After I sent her there things began to calm down at our home and I realized how broken our family was and made big changes at home.

I also realized that my daughter was reacting to the way our lives were. If my child ever reads this I want her to know that I am sorry. I felt desperate and wanted to fix the problem.

Julie Well I am glad and your daughter should appreciate that you are able to see the fundamental flaws of the programs. So many parents refuse to admit their mistakes and it is extremely frustrating as a former inmate to deal with.

My advice when dealing with your daughter on this subject would be to try to sit down and talk to her. Just listen to what she has to say and let her know that you are aware of the treachery of WWASPs as a business and the individuals who received a paycheck from them. She is lucky to have a mother who accepts what happened there.

As a parent, your voice carries weight in the fight against these evil people. If you would participate in our goal of shutting these places down for good, you will be helping your daughter and thousands more like her. A year later I ran out of money and needed to remove my son from the program. We are from Ohio. My son was facing prison so I felt that I had no choice. My son never progressed in the levels and he talked about the hobbit but I had no idea how awful it was. I believed that his counselor, Laurie was looking out for him.

I was in Spring Creek Lodge from I was part of the serenity family. Funny name to give considering that serenity was the farthest thing from describing this place. I am very happy to hear that this place is closed, but the memories from what the staff members did to me there will stay forever.

Did i have a problem growing up as a child, yes, thats why my grandmother sent me there, however no one helped me. I almost felt like the staff wanted us to continue to fail. I dont know how Chaffin and his brother sleep at night. I hope GOD has mercy on there soul. Are there any accounts of Chaffin or Cameron molesting kids? I saw both of them beat kids up and both of them gave me the creeps. They both obviously were sadists, and I know that WWASPs employs perverts Robert Lichfield himself has even been rumored to be a rapist , but I just got a particular kind of weird feeling about Chaffin especially.

It will be interesting to hear what kind of testimonies arise as more and more former detainees speak out. In a perfect world these bastards would be in prison. I was in Spring Creek Lodge from to Thank God the program is shut down!!! I endured every type of abuse imaginable there…..

I hope the families of those who have died from the negligence receive justice! Myles cee gavon brodnax in the house. Fuck culkins but the one I hate was jeff colby. This marine wiuld loveeeeee to meet up with colby. What can I say about the program.

Mannn I was so shady at that place. They fuckng made me live in the tpee in the winter for like 2 weeks. It was cool cuz I went n stole the staffs ciggs n got to do whatever I wanted. I have to say I got lucky with family fathers though. Thank god I was in wisdom but our cabin was the shittiest. Hey at least big sky had its own washer n dryer lol I hated the box! It sucked when you had to lug that thing around.

Talk about some gay shit lol they said I would amount to nothing!!!!! Yeah I soent time in jail….. Did my time in tbe marines and served my country in afgan and irq. Now I have 2 kids a sexy ass wife and am a welder in tbe steelworkers union in pittsburgh pa. Do I still have anger issues? Try to put me in the hobbit now. I am not even quite sure where to begin when it comes to Spring Creek. I was employed there from I started out as night staff and then switched over to day staff.

It did not take me long to start having issues with some of the rules and treatment that the students were subject to.

As a staff member I was discouraged by the facility to form friendships with the girls. It was basically my job to monitor and discipline the students. I loved working with the students and trying to help them work through their problems and difficult situations. I had considered quitting several times because of the way some of the other staff treated the students.

I finally did quit in Sept. That still haunts me that maybe if I was there I could have prevented it. I still think about her and cry on occasion. I am glad that Spring Creek closed. I cant even imagine the intolerable conditions with those racist, unethical, monsters! The good news is I hear they are having major financial struggles. I have heard that they owe vendors thousands and are on the verge of closure! They apparently have taken very awkward steps to try and stay afloat which unfortunately means poorer quality services for the prisoners.

Any idea who these sponsors are? Walter how did you find all this info out i didnt even know this and i went there haha. Can you give me more info?? Pictures of the Racist Chaffin Pullan! Tell me stories of his comments and behaviors!!!! And i played it safe to say the least! I saw some terrifying things there…. And its great to see familiar names! Hey its lori sherman!! My married name is lori kinder.

I would love to chat with you!!! They are trying to lease the old Diamond Ranch property, but it seems that they are broke. Even after the loss of multiple lawsuits, news reports outlining the abuse and new lawsuits filed regularly, they turn a blind eye to hide the children that they broke using the guise of helping them.

I was there from and I was in the Serenity Family — Amy was my house mother. The 3 day seminars way in the back of the woods is something that i will never forget. I hope Chaffin and Cameron get what they deserve.

This place was hell. Stephanie i was also in serenity in 99 but later after failed attempts by staff to force me to move up in levels like 3allstar i was transferred to the new family destiny they built above the junior staff cabins. I remember my stay thers like it was yestetday. I made some life long friends. I was in mike lindermans adoption group.

I remember not getting propper shoes or even my shoe laces during winter cause of a prior wilderness program i was in they claimed i could run n survive in the woods. As a result frostbite. Also the hobbit what a joke i had locked myswlf in the porta potty cause i didnt wanna go back in. They put a hose through the top an turned it on… then knoxked over the porta potty.

I have nightmares of the gravel pit an other bullshyt i had to endure. Megan, do you remember me? Chelsie also Destiny from 99 to I am amazed at how I have blocked so much out. I think I remember Megan. Chelsie, you are right about not remembering everything clearly. When not even the names of the people I lived with for 2. I am going to be 34 soon and my PTSD is only getting stronger.

High Impact in Mexico definitely did not help and my only reward for graduating that boot camp in Mexico is getting sent back to Spring Creek Lodge until I left at My name is ERic Rios, i was there from I was in respect family, I recall the day I went in October 3, and the day I left April 21, , Anyone remember Tinkerbell the big black guy with cold teet?????

Or Jeff Manzanares badass staff member?? Family father of excel. Or was it respect. Excel was next door to you guys. I was there may to april We use to watch movies with u guys on sundays. James matica saw this and got ahold of me…hope ur doing well bro..

Hey I was scl same time and from Orange County ca. I think I met you in a seminar where they made us stick stickers on boys and made us think about all the times the opposite sex screwed us over? What a creep show those seminars were. I remember they would humiliate people individually I front of everyone bring up serious issues like rape and abuse infront of everyone.

Public humiliation and reliving trauma seemed to be their weapon in manipulation. The counselor I was manated to see one time because I was new at the time told me about crazy mushroom picking he did with his girlfriend and started touching my legs and shit. Did any girl ever have anything similar happen to them?

Also Veronica from destiny if you find this please email me! You truly were my only friend j could trust there. Yeah thank god we made it out that shit hole. I was in respect with you bro.

I was in respect with you. Hit me up shelbymorgan47 yahoo. I was also in spring creek lodge back in 97 for 6 weeks. I successfully escaped from that place by stealing a workers truck in middle of night and driving to Spokane Washington and from there I got on a train to san francisco bay area in California. It was quite an adventure. It is so cold today — literally freezing — and I imagine running to the creek and diving in headfirst, the creek so shallow that my hands scrape against the rocks, and my body slides into the cold water, the shock of the cold giving way to numbness, and I would stay there In all the Before sections, it just felt like the characters were stalling for time, waiting for that inevitable disaster to happen.

Once it does, I suddenly became completely invested in the book and decided that I needed to give it five stars. And if Alaska took her own life, that is the hope I wish I could have given her. Forgetting her mother, forgetting her friends and herself — those are awful things, but she did not need to fold into herself and self-destruct.

Those awful things are survivable, because we are as indestructible as we believe ourselves to be. We thinks that we are invincible because we are. We cannot be born, and we cannot die. Like all energy, we can only change shapes and sizes and manifestations. They forget that when they get old. They get scared of losing and failing. But part of us greater than the sum of our parts cannot begin and cannot end, and so it cannot fail. I think she did it on purpose.

I think she meant to do it. Whilst dicking around on tumblr, I found a snippet of a poem by Warsan Shire and I had to post it at the end of this review, because I think it perfectly expresses what Alaska would say if she were allowed to tell this story in her own words, and it also illustrates what John Green fails to understand about his Manic Pixie Dream Girl obsession: View all 25 comments.

I first read this book in when I was 14 and it turned out to be the book that sparked my love for literature. I've always loved reading, but before that I only read for the sake of entertainment. Looking for Alaska was the first book that I thoroughly enjoyed reading, but that simultaneously and more importantly, made me think about greater issues in life for a long time after I had finished reading.

Now that I'm 21, I understand that while this remains to be a highly philosophical book, it's I first read this book in when I was 14 and it turned out to be the book that sparked my love for literature. Now that I'm 21, I understand that while this remains to be a highly philosophical book, it's not the "deepest" and most perfect book ever.

However, it still means the world to me and I'll always be thankful for John Green for writing it. Aug 22, kat rated it really liked it. View all 8 comments. Apr 26, Kristopher Jansma rated it liked it Shelves: I've been getting in touch with my inner Young Adult this week, in preparation for yet another final rewrite on my own YA book.

This has, for the most part, amounted to listening to Death Cab for Cutie and reading Looking for Alaska - a book that I have been actively avoiding.

The story of this is long and somewhat personal, so feel free to skip this part if you just want to know if the book is good. I first heard of Looking for Alaska in my thesis workshop, when a girl very snidely told me I'd h I've been getting in touch with my inner Young Adult this week, in preparation for yet another final rewrite on my own YA book. I first heard of Looking for Alaska in my thesis workshop, when a girl very snidely told me I'd have to take out part of my own book because it sounded very similar to this book she'd heard about on NPR, which had not even come yet out at that point.

Stubbornly I refused to cut the section and even read it at my thesis reading and when Alaska finally did come out, I flipped through just enough of it to decide my book was way better and then abandoned it. Sadly, Alaska has dogged me ever since. Agents and editors alike have told me that my book is too similar to it - which is apparently not a good thing - despite Alaska having won a number of awards and such.

Anyway, sour grapes aside, I decided that if the comparisons are inevitable, I might as well know what I'm being held up against. So what do the young adults of this world really want? And a stiff drink or twelve.

Looking for Alaska is about normal, skinny Miles Halter, quickly nicknamed Pudge, who gets into Culver Creek Boarding School and leaves in search of something more interesting. His quirky personality trait is that he memorizes the famous last words of various historical figures - a party trick that he uses to successfully get in with his roommate, who goes by "the Colonel" and the smoky little sexpot down the hall, Alaska Young.

Wait, you might be saying, what's with all these funny nicknames? Well, Alaska turns out to be nearly the only name in the book that isn't a nickname - though we do find out that her parents decided to let her name herself at the age of 5.

Try as I might I can't recall a lot of excessive nicknaming in my youth. I suppose there were a few guys I knew who pretty much went by their last names, when there were too many Adams or Brians in the bunch. I had one friend who referred to himself as the Emperor All I will say is that the structure and the subject matter reminded me immensely of The Secret History by Donna Tartt which incidentally was my main inspiration as well But just as I felt that the second half of History sags, Alaska does too.

It's hard to talk about why without spoiling the twist, so I'll focus my energy on the Before section, which will give you the gist. As I said earlier, Pudge loves Famous Last Words, this is actually the facet that the snarky workshop girl told me was too close to my own book and I expected to hate this quirk - but in fact it grew on me.

The whole book grew on me - the romantic tension between him and Alaska is perfect, and there are an awful lot of incredibly poignant moments as Pudge grows accustomed to the school and it's strange rules and rhythms.

Ultimately the book becomes a youthful meditation on life and death, which made me realize part of the joy of YA writing - just as in the Death Cab songs, the emotions can be laid much barer than in more serious literary works where things always seem to have to stay sort of ambiguous and sophisticated.

Teenagers are supposed to be a little melodramatic, and that's sort of the joy of it. Badly done, you get Gossip Girl style antics, a lot of who-cheated-on-whom-with-whomever-else.

But rightly done, you get something like the better parts of Looking for Alaska. A lot of ridiculous stuff. The Colonel and Alaska are more or less perpetually drunk she buries wine bottles in the woods and there's a good deal of cigarette smoking going on as well - for which they are occasionally punished. Fellatio is simulated on a tube of toothpaste then performed in real life.

Alaska's big hunky boyfriend from another school comes by frequently and everyone talks racily about how much sex they seem to have and just how much Alaska loves it. Worse than anything, when the characters are good and drunk which is often they will break out in absurd, spontaneous, freestyle rapping.

In between all the genuine, poignant moments of the book, are a million moments where they're all so jaded and edgy and wacky you almost wish you could reach in and smack all their heads together. Maybe that's just me. A friend of mine who actually went to boarding school observed to me the other day that none of the boarding school books she's ever read including Alaska, which she did not like give any realistic idea of the sheer volume of WORK that needs to be done.

There's essentially no time leftover to get up to any trouble, she said. At any rate, Culver seems to be a somewhat less romanticised boarding school than the Exeters and Andovers of the world. It's in Alabama for one thing. Most of the rich kids head home on the weekends leaving only our protagonists to get up to trouble. There's very little sense that any of them feel pressure to do well or accomplish anything extraordinary in life. The overriding question of the book is how one can escape the constant sufferings of life - not suffering like having to work hard or being humiliated or anything - think more like a teenager - it is the suffering of unrequited love, parents that just don't get it, the fear of getting expelled for one's various illicit pleasures, the embarrassment of puking on a girl Ultimately the book hinges on a more deeply serious moment - the sort that makes this philosophical question really important for them, and puts their previous, childish problems in perspective.

However, as I said earlier, this moment comes halfway through, making the final half of the book one very tedious denouement. Ultimately, the good in this book will stick in my mind far more than the bad. The character's absurdities and the shaky structure are both quickly forgotten upon putting the book down. I'm genuinely glad that I read it, and not only because now I have a better idea of what to avoid with my own book.

Alaska is a great character, when she's not a little bit over the top. And maybe that's just what being a teenager is all about. View all 16 comments. I was recommended this by a good friend and I was really looking forward to it. I love the vlogbrothers videos and the first chapter really made me want to read it and find out more but it didn't live up to the expectation that the first few chapters set up.

My main problem with the book was the characters. It wasn't even that they were underdeveloped. Alaska and Miles just pissed me off. I let some of it slide by because I understand certain parts were intentional but Miles was just so whiny. I I was recommended this by a good friend and I was really looking forward to it. I couldn't handle it. By the time I got to the "After" section of the book I was going through the motions; counting pages, skipping whole paragraphs that seemed unimportant and screaming internally at my book.

The took so long to figure out the great mystery of the incident that is didn't seem plausible for a group of teenagers who are supposed to be smart. I have since read another John Green book and I truly loved it. His writing is excellent and it is so refreshing to see a YA novel with a male voice. I also rather liked that they actually did homework and went to classes.

So, please, go and but another of his books and truly enjoy the author that is John Green. View all 21 comments. Aug 27, Nick rated it really liked it. My favorite from John Green. This reminds me of high school. Aug 22, e. The only way out of the labyrinth of suffering is to forgive.

John Green has established himself a very large fan base of readers, who are very fond of his work and writing. Unfortunately, after reading a lot of his work, I can't say that I belong to that fanbase. Neither his characters nor writing nor plot make me swoon. Alright, that was a very formal way of saying that his books are not for me. Now, let's cut to the chase, shall we? Everybody loves to read a good, ol' raging review about a con The only way out of the labyrinth of suffering is to forgive.

Everybody loves to read a good, ol' raging review about a controversial book. But I'll try to keep this one civil. I can understand why Green's books are so popular, even though I don't personally find them anything spectacular.

First of all, I noticed a trend in some of his stories. The leading main character is almost always bland and boring, take for example, Paper Towns or this book, Looking for Alaska.

Now, I'm not being a bully here and saying that Green is the only one who follows this trope - but, it's just a little observation of mine. You don't have to agree with me. Following that observation, have you realized that similarly in a few cases, the female is always portrayed as this 'mysterious, untouchable' goddess of some sort? The normal, grey-little-piece-of-paper bloke and the otherworldly queen.

I get that when people, especially teenagers, fall in love, they idealize their crush, looking past all their imperfections This trope is overwhelmingly popular in YA. Okay, now think about this. Imagine a bucket full of paper cards with plot twists, character traits, character interests, events, etc.

Now, the way I see it, most of Green's books feel like these little cards have been pulled out at random, and the story was based upon them. It's ridiculous, I know. But, that's just how I feel, okay? Now, let's get to the actual book. If I could describe this book in a few random words, it would be: I highly appreciate that Green was trying to touch on some important matters. But, I don't think this book did them justice. This book was entertaining to read, in the way that it's wasn't boring, even though it pretty much had no plot.

You fly through it. I can't say that I didn't necessarily enjoy reading it - it was chaotic, and crazy and full of that 'teenage rebellion' jazz. I felt very little towards any of the characters, especially Alaska. The amount of times her body was described is literally insane - like, Miles, get a grip, stop being fickle.

I understand that he thought her personality was brilliant too and at that age, teenage hormones go on a raging rampage, but, enough is enough. Even towards the end, I couldn't bring myself to feel any sympathy for either of them. At one point, sure, I felt a little bleak, but no tears were shed.

The writing wasn't bad. It was very simple and bland, and full of vulgar language, but it wasn't something terrible. As usual, it had that 'philosophical' undertone - when young people try to sound all wise - which drives me crazy.

I'm not saying that teenagers are stupid, because as a teenager myself, I think that is the most inaccurate, insulting accusation one can make.

But, there's a huge disparity between wisdom and intelligence. Okay, now, I'd like to touch on another matter. I'm not going to hide it. Teenagers smoke, and that's something that was and most likely always will be part of our society.

Lots of my friends smoke, and whilst it's not something that I want to take part in, as an athlete saying athlete, I don't mean I'm a professional, or anything , I under where its popularity comes from. The characters in this book smoke. That's fine, because it makes the book seem realistic. Damn it, I'm fifteen and I know people my age and younger who smoke. And, truthfully, that's not something society can magically eradicate. But, the way it was depicted in the book made me mad. Not whilst reading it.

But looking back at it now If you have the opportunity to write a book aimed towards a younger audience, wouldn't you want to make a positive impact? But, in this book, smoking was deemed in my opinion 'cool' and, honestly, that was something that infuriated me.

The characters smoked so much, and nothing happened to them. They were healthy, and didn't cough at all. Literally, as though smoking was a chill, harmless activity - not full of nicotine and tobacco. Smoking is life threatening. Why glorify it in a book? This whole theme should have been handled differently, in my opinion. It should have pushed people away from smoking.

Writers can create magic through words. As the saying goes, words have the power to change minds. John Green has a huge amount of fans, spread all around the world, and he obviously must have a talent in writing. If you happen to possess two of these things, why not use them to your advantage? Through a beautiful paragraph, people could feel at least feel some distaste towards smoking. It just should have had a better moral; a better message towards readers. A more constructive message, in my opinion.

I understand that these teenagers want to experiment, want to try new things, but come on, there's boundaries that shouldn't be crossed. And, when an author touches upon life threatening, addictive substances, I think it would be only fair if he portrayed the action, as dangerous.

Overall, I didn't enjoy this book. Sadly, it just wasn't one for me. How did you find it? Jun 05, Jasmine rated it it was amazing Shelves: If people were rain, I was drizzle and she was a hurricane.

Throughout the book, extremely loud and incredibly close soundtrack came to my mind the whole time. The melody fits the story so well. I never thought Miles "Pudge" Halter's turning point in life would be like that. Absolutely, totally, completely life-changing difference before and after. It's like, well, experiencing a heartbroken and mysterious loss at school.

Ironically, he went to Alabama in search of his so-called "Great Perhaps" If people were rain, I was drizzle and she was a hurricane. Ironically, he went to Alabama in search of his so-called "Great Perhaps" and that was the way he found out the way out of labyrinth of suffering. It's a come-of-age book about life and death, mortality and immortality, faith and despair. Highly recommend to everyone since it's inevitable for us to face the miseries and important for us to learn how to deal with them.

We'd failed, maybe, but some mysteries aren't meant to be solved. I'd like to share my thoughts for some of the intentionally vague and broad discussion questions below.

Do you like Alaska? Do you think it's important to like people you read about? My answer is yes and no. Yes, I like Alaska Young in the book because she was portrayed as a witty, humorous, sexy, but self-destructive and always felt screwed up everything in her life.

She was an interesting character for me, and I like that she changed Pudge entirely after they met. On the contrary, no, I don't like her.

She was capricious sometimes, and I didn't get her actually. One minute she was still having fun when drinking heavily plus smoking to death , and within a blink of eye, she was freaked out and started blaming herself without clear reasons or maybe she did have a reason and just nobody knew why.

She didn't leave me enough to discover her, but she left me enough to rediscover the Great Perhaps. Speaking of forgiveness, I'm not sure whether this is a coincidence or not.

Yesterday morning, I got a phone call from my friend and shocked enough to be informed of my best friend's death because of the failure after 20 days of his emergency treatment. I met him three years ago in a summer camp and later became good friends.

Never did I expect that he was one of the victims in the dust explosion in that party. Even though in the instant moment I knew how badly he was injured, I had a bad feeling that there was a slim chance for his survival, I still held some hope for him because he was a strong guy I used to know.

As for me, I was too scared to visit him so I didn't have the chance to say goodbye. I don't even know his last words. Everything that comes together falls apart. Sometimes it's really hard to swallow the fact that my best friend is dead , like "Poof" and gone.

I have no way to fulfill my promise to him anymore but when I know that once the doctor took off his ECMO extracorporeal membrane oxygenation , he had let out his last breath and he'd no longer feel the excruciating pain, I was kind of relieved. I think he'll forgive me in the heaven as long as he knows what I'm thinking and how his friends are feeling for him. So yes, forgiveness is universal, no matter the circumstances and it's possible for the dead to forgive the living, and vise versa.

Tears in heaven by Eric Clapton is the song in memorial to him, and he'll be in our hearts forever. In my opinion, when we lose someone we love, or someone we happened to encounter with in the seemingly short life, all we can do instead of lamenting our losses is change the state of mind. That's the best solution for us, I suppose. Just as the old saying goes, "Time will heal all wounds.

It's one I very much enjoyed listening to. Love, friendship, life, death, before, after, finding meaning in life and learning to forgive.
