Blerb.(Blurb. But that’s my version.):
Before. Miles “Pudge” Halter’s whole existence has been one big nonevent, and his obsession with famous last words has only made him crave the “Great Perhaps” (François Rabelais, poet) even more. He heads off to the sometimes crazy, possibly unstable, 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, who is an event unto herself. She pulls Pudge into her world, launches him into the Great Perhaps, and steals his heart.
After. Nothing is ever the same.
I read The Fault in Our Stars right before Looking For Alaska, and this is what I want to say to people who claim TFIOS is better:
What in the world are you thinking.
Looking For Alaska is his best. (Plus Point: My (sister’s) book was FLAPPY! How much happier can I get?) Abundance was not so good, Fault was okay, but this. Is GOLD. I mean come on! Our dear protagonist is going to a school full of literature geniuses. Not exactly full of it, but well, his friends are.
- “Pudge” a scrawny, tall boy with a last-word fetish.
- Alaska, beautiful, smart, charming.
- “The Colonel” a short, stocky, SMART guy.
- Takumi, Asian(he’s not a computer genius, he says, don’t think he is. Not all Asians are.), knowledgeable(I guess).
I really cannot say much, because this book is a mystery for you guys to uncover. I loved the suspense, thrill and pranks. I don’t know, but I felt guilty when “Pudge” smoked. Because his parents told him not to. I was frustrated at Alaska for half the time. All the secrets she kept. All the mystery she was. But, as she says, “that’s the whole point.” And, oh!, she keeps playing on “Pudge”. I felt bad for him. Like you don’t know if it’s real or not, because it’s all foggy and vague.
Overall, this book was amazing, I really don’t know how to describe it, just. Go read it.
