Review #3

Warning: SPOILERS

John Green’s first novel Looking for Alaska tells us about life; it’s as simple as that. Jumping into the “Great Perhaps” is possibly the goal for every person on this earth, whether it’s a conscious goal or not. Looking for Alaska not only encourages us to live and experience, but to never underestimate the duality of the world; a cruel yet beautiful thing. Alaska Young pulled Miles into her world of wildness and pranks, allowing for him to go find the Great Perhaps, yet she died and left everyone lost. Something so fantastic and seemingly invincible was taken within a few seconds. In short, this book will make you laugh, cry, and most importantly: think. Everyone after reading this is given a wonderful gift. And that gift is perspective.

With Smiles,
