Looking for Alaska
Transcript of Looking for Alaska
By: John Green
The book is realistic fiction. It is very good, and I would read it over and over again if I could. I love the books by John Green, and hope to read all of them. This book got me hooked by the second page, and I could not put it down. With the twisted ending, it made it nearly impossible to stop reading.
~Pudge (Miles): Miles, or as everyone calls him, Pudge, is the main character and narrator of this book. He is about 16 years old, and has recently just moved schools to Culver Creek (a boarding school). He makes a lot of new friends, and has a lot of fun adventures in his first year at the Creek
~The Colonel (Chip): Chip, or as everyone calls him, The Colonel, is Pudge's room mate, and his first friend. The Colonel is the leader of the group of friends, and is very smart. He got to the Creek on a academic scholarship, and even though he may be crazy, he is very serious about his school work. He helps Pudge and all of his friends get through some tough times, and sometimes, they have to help him through tougher.
~Alaska: Alaska is Pudge's dream girl, even though she already has a boyfriend who she loves. She is also at the Creek on an academic scholarship. She is everyone's go to gal, and she is truly the life of the party, and even though she goes through very tough times, she still manages to help her friends when they are in need.
There were many conflicts in this book, but there were some main ones. Most of them involved Alaska.
~The group of friends liked to pull pranks. And one of the pranks they pull could get them in trouble. When the Juniors have to bring in a speaker to talk to their school, they bring in someone to act out a part. It could get them in deep trouble from the principle of the school. Do they get caught?
~Flashback: While the group of friends were in the barn, they were talking about their favorite childhood memory. Alaska's was when her and her mother went to the zoo, one day after school, and the only things they looked at were the monkeys and the bears because the monkeys were her moms favorite, and the bears was her favorite.
~Foreshadowing: When the group of friends spent the night at the barn, they pulled a prank on the principle. The author made it sound like because he came out of his house yelling, you could automatically assume that they were going to get caught, and get in trouble.
Flashback and Foreshadowing
Looking for Alaska
I would recommend this book to just about anybody. It has some bad language, but it blends in with what they are talking about. This book is really for adults, and teenagers who are into books that are hard to put down. I would recommend this to anybody because it was such a good book, and one of my favorites. It took me a while to read, because I had to reread some parts, but that's what made it even better. If you are stuck trying to find a good book, this is a great book, and I would read it again in a heartbeat.
~Quote #1: "Straight and fast." (213) Throughout the whole book, Alaska and Pudge would talk about how to get out of the labyrinth of suffering. At the end of the book, Pudge and the Colonel finally find out how to get through it, and Alaska can be blamed for it; straight and fast.
~Quote #2: "There's a prank to plan...." (76) Alaska was the queen of pranks. When someone pulled a prank on her, they better be sleeping with one eye open. She would spend hours, even days figuring out a new plan to pull on them.
The mood of this book as a mix. In the "before" part of the book, the mood is happy, and maybe even a bit funny. The group of friends always have a good time together, and always find a way to have fun, and make memories. When you get towards the "after" part of the book, the mood changes just a little. It starts going downhill, and the mood settles at depressing. When the news hits you, you will definitely feel the mood start to sink. It is the most depressing part, but the best part at the same time.
