Looking for Alaska

Posted on Updated on


It Is really difficult for me to describe what I felt after reading this book phenomenal piece of story. It is such kind of book which you read more than once and still enjoy every great turn the story brought with each turning page. This is one of the best YA book I’ve ever read. Apart from the theme which John Green picked, which is very similar to the fault in our stars or paper towns, but it really kept me going and its one of the very few books which I finished within a day.

That’s what YA books are all about, too much smoking, porn, drinking, sex, foul language. And these things make it something different from other genre’s. The characters were so alive and distinct in each unique way that it made me feel that I was present within their small group of friends. You laugh with the characters, you cry with them, you plan the greatest pranks with them. It all, the experience was just Awesomely hilariously touching!

The words chosen by John Green were so special and extraordinary that it made you stop reading for a while to absorb what its really saying. I really really really LOVED this book. Unique thing in this book was the last word remembering hobby of Pudge. My favorite was, of course, the last one, Thomas Edison’s last words were: “It’s very beautiful over there” I don’t know where there is, but I believe its somewhere and I hope it’s Beautiful.

Another intrigued thing from this book was What is Labyrinth? Labyrinth is Life or death or suffering or pain. I just wanted to say that everyone has their own definition of Labyrinth and if they don’t know it yet then they will soon realize it.

I go to seek a Great Perhaps. These last words by Francois Rabelais, really kept me in a long reverie and I think the Great Perhaps is only possible if you are being guided by your fate instead of taking matters in your hand even though the matter is out of your hand. The Great Perhaps is a possibility that fate will guide you to the right path. I believe when you reach a Great Perhaps point, you’ll look back and realize that these and these decisions led you here, where you currently are standing, and in the end it all will made sense to you, every single event, every single mistake, every single decision and that’s what makes LIFE interesting. You just got to believe that every single thing happens for a reason. Sooner or later, everyone will go through a Great Perhaps moment or moments.
