I just finished reading Looking for Alaska by John Green , so here’s my review💬🌷.
#Review - I have mixed feelings about this book. I liked some parts of it but there were a lot of flaws but I’d definitely like to say that despite of having a vague plot , this book tries to give us a very strong message at the end. I really appreciate this book as a whole for what it tried to do.
🔹Things I liked :
1) The concept of seeking the ‘great perhaps’. Very unique and innovative.
2)The colonel a.k.a Chip’s character was amazing. He was very realistic and probably the only character I could connect with.
3)The quotes were just amazing, they make you wonder a lot.
4) The character development was pretty good too. 🔹Thing I didn’t like:
1) I just didn’t like the characters and I wasn’t able to connect with them. They were pretty annoying at times.
2) The looks of the characters haven’t been described properly. Whenever I read a book I like to imagine the characters vividly and in this book I wasn’t able too. Alaska is described as a curvy girl with green eyes. What about the rest of her face? Am I just supposed to imagine a faceless girl?
3) I just didn’t like the writing style and at times I had to go back and read to understand what was exactly happening.
4)The plot wasn’t developed properly, it could’ve been dealt with in a better way.
Summing up, I’d say it was a good book but not amazing but the message it gave was deep .You should definitely give it a try , since everyone has different opinions. But yeah, in my opinion it was overhyped.
#Rating - 3.5/5
My favourite quote from the book is:
1) “I go to seek a great perhaps”.♥️
2) “Is the labyrinth living or dying? Which is he trying to escape - the world or the end of it?”🔓
