“His debut novel, Looking For Alaska, is a showcase to the raw talent John Green has, the kind of talent that can make you close the crisp last page of a novel and come out as a different person.” This review says it is a very good book that makes you think and come out of it as ‘a different person’. I agree to this. It is a book with a lot of depth. It makes you think about a certain situation, for example when Alaska dies. It gives you a different perspective to things. When you are reading the book you sort of get emotionally attached to Alaska. You are going to think like Miles does, so when Alaska dies, it just hits you. “The beauty of the book is that it doesn’t hide anything. It showcases what young love and growing up really are in a brutal and honest light.” The book has some really heavy parts. It has a lot of surprises, things you would never expect that will happen. This is what makes it so real. What bothered me sometimes was that Miles never really said what he actually meant. He tried to describe things in other ways, with quotes for example or he held back what he really wanted to say. There was a scene in the book right after he got taped up and thrown in the water. He was in Alaska’s room and he tried to explain what happened but Alaska was constantly talking over him and said he should not exaggerate so much. Alaska did not know he was taped up and I don’t get why Miles did not tell her. He was only thinking it and not expressing himself. That is what bothered me about the book sometimes. “Why I prefer John Green’s debut novel to his other ones is because he’s made no effort to make it an appropriate and proper book. You might not weep buckets like most people did at the end of The Fault in Our Stars, but you’ll get attached to Miles and Alaska, just as they do to each other.” I do agree that it is a story you can get carried away with, you get attached to the people in the book. On the other hand, I do not agree to his sentence “he’s made no effort to make it an appropriate and proper book.” I do think it is a proper book. Yes, it has its sexual scenes and things that people could get offended by, but that is a personal opinion. I don’t feel that way at all. Overall it was a really good book that I really liked. I would definitely recommend it. I am planning on reading more books of John Green after this one, so I am happy I chose this one to write about in my report.>GET ANSWER
