„The Great Perhaps“

"Looking for Alaska" is the first novel by bestselling author John Green, who's probably best known for his novel "The Fault in Our Stars".

"Looking for Alaska" is the first novel by bestselling author John Green, who's probably best known for his novel "The Fault in Our Stars".

16-year-old Miles transfers from a public school in Florida to a boarding school in Alabama. There he finally finds friends and leads a somewhat typical life of a teenager. But about halfway through his first year there tragedy strikes and leaves him devastated.
How could things turn so bad? Could it all have been prevented?

This amazing book is not only about pranks, first love and school like some might expect. On the contrary, it also tackles more serious topics like loyalty and underage drinking.

I enjoyed reading this story and strongly suggest teenagers aged 14 and up read it too.

After reading "The fault in our stars" I just grabbed the next available book by John Green in the Bookshop, which happened to be "Looking for Alaska". "Looking for Alaska" is John Green´s debut novel and I think that the reader notices that. I think "The fault in our stars" was a perfect book, a jewel in every which way. "Looking for Alaska" is wonderfully written John Green is the best I lose track of time and feel completely sucked up in Pudge´s World. I felt the hotness of the sun in Florida, the poor furnishing in Culver Creek and I felt fascinated by Alaska. The book is beautiful as it´s characters I think John Green always put´s a lot of himself in his books, which makes them so gorgeous but where "The fault in our stars" was a rounded up book with absolutely no faults and no holes in it "Looking for Alaska" sometimes gave me the feeling of running into Nether Land. I think mostly it was meant to be that way but still it bothered me. But as I just developed a fascination with John Green I most definitely are going to read all of his books. Anyway John Green´s book stay with you, the change your way of thinking and make life more complete. Needless to say "read it!"

Alaska is like a celebrity for Pudge - beautiful to watch and unattainable. A story about friendship, love and not placing people you love on a pedestal.

Absolute Leseempfehlung! Die Geschichte ist gut durchdacht, witzig, traurig, sie berührt und regt zum Nachdenken an ... John Green lässt sich auch im Original ganz toll lesen!
