Looking for Alaska - John Green I've been wanting to read this for ages, and finally got around to doing so this week. I had no expectations at all - didn't even know what the story was about - but the title kept popping up everywhere, so I figured it was time I saw what the fuss was all about.Fortunately I ended up really liking it. It's character-driven more than plot-driven, but the way John Green writes really makes it work. I read it over the course of two days, and found myself thinking about it constantly during the second day. The characters are believable and sympathetic... even when I acted out. And I LOVED Alaska's last prank - that really made me laugh out loud. Especially the Eagle's reaction to it."Looking for Alaska" definitely isn't for everybody. I could see people finding it too dull, or too depressing or even too pretentious. But it worked for me :)
