No hi ha cap discussió a Converses sobre aquesta obra.
Miles, un jove que busca el seu destí, i Alaska, una noia perduda al laberint de la vida, s'enfronten a preguntes intemporals. Miles veu com la seva vida transcorre sense cap emoció. La seva obsessió amb memoritzar les últimes paraules de personatges il•lustres el porta a voler trobar el seu “Gran Quizá” (com va dir François R abelais just abans de morir). Decideix mudar-se a Culver Creek, un internat fora del comú, on es divertirà per primera vegada de la llibertat i coneixerà Alaska Young. La preciosa, descarada, fascinadora i autodestructiva Alaska arrossegarà a Miles al seu món, l'empenyerà cap al “Gran Quizá” i li robarà el cor.
Miles Halter is a teenager from Florida who likes to read bibliographies and collect last words of famous people. He decided to go to Alabama to finish last two years of his high school education. Miles chooses Culver Creek Preparatory School. His parents are questioning if he decide to go to preparatory school to meet new people and change his boring life style.
Miles instantly became a friend with his roommate Colonel who gave him a nick name Pudge. The Colonel is clever, proud, and financially poor. He is a born leader. Miles got introduced to Alaska Young. She gave his life a new dimension. Alaska is a beautiful, funny, intelligent, and rebellious. Miles falls for Alaska. She became a center of Miles universe.
This book is made using a before and after counting element to build up a grand climax of events. It is an unusual, but effective way of presenting a story. It is a great read. Many teen topics are addressed here: smoking, alcohol consumption and consequences, meaning of life, friendship, belonging, religion, death and dying, grief, and healing.
The author of Looking for Alaska, John Green, made me think about life and our attitude about it. A topic of depression got brought in with Alaska’s behavior. She gave out many times signs that she is suicidal. Her attitude about dying and her struggle with her mother’s passing away was never addressed in a productive way. Her depression was not taken seriously. Consequences are tragic and unbearable.
Miles's narration is alive with sweet, self-deprecating humor, and his obvious struggle to tell the story truthfully adds to his believability.
