    " Loved this book. Laughed and cried. Also liked the main character was male, which is a change from most books I read. Quick book with a lot of memorable moments. Worth a read! "

    " I loved this book. The subject matter was very depressing but I loved the characters and the 'realness' of it all. Devastating things happen. And people are left to deal with them. I was struck by how profound the ending of this book was considering it was about high school students. 'We need never be hopeless, because we can never be irreparably broken.' and 'If we could only see the endless string of consequences that result from our smallest actions. But we can't know better until knowing better is useless.' Read it. "

    " I liked this book and yet I was disappointed at the same time. There was something about it that I found unlikable (all the teenage smoking for one) and the main character turned out to be a little too self-involved for my liking in the second half of the book. However I did like the overall storyline with the interesting, yet very flawed Alaska Young and all those around her who are so intrigued by her. "

    " This book was pretty good. I really enjoyed the end message of the story. (Which I won't mention in my review.) The book takes you on this journey about friends and their relationships. It is good. "

    " Looking for Alaska had a story that was somewhat well written and I thought the story was okay. Some parts were very inappropriate and the book is full of bad language and alcohol drugs etc. Overall it was as okay book but not something that i would recommend "

    " Well, let me start by saying this was the first John Green book I have ever read, and let me tell you, I was instantly amazed at how wonderful this book was! I definatly am now hooked on John Green books and am curently reading Fault In Our Stars. I could not put this book down! "

    " I really did like this book, but it didn't strike me as amazing. The overall plot felt cliche, but apart from that, the writing was phenomenal. Although this is probably John Green's best book (before The Fault In Our Stars came out anyway) in many people's opinions, I certainly don't think so. "

    " Inspirational quotes could be found here. I kinda expected it since John Green is the author. I'm not really into the plot since for me it's not that interesting. There are parts too that are so boring. But still, you'll learn something from this book and somehow you can relate to the characters. "

    " Not one of my favorites but it was pretty good. I must admit that the fault in our stars was more interesting. I just did not feel anything while reading this, no emotions at all, which is why I did not enjoy it that much. Nevertheless, I loved the story. "

    " A great book about acceptance that you can't have answers for everything. That sometimes, you just have to let it go and stop "Looking For Alaska." Well-written and really appealing to teenagers. One of my favorites. "
