Looking for Alaska (4ème/Groupe 2)

Title : Looking for Alaska

Author: John Green

Genre: Romantic and tragic

Miles Halter is a shy teenager who transfers to Culver Creek Boarding School, in search of the “Great Perhaps”.  His roommate Chip “the Colonel” Martin takes Miles under his wing, nicknames him Pudge, and introduces him to smoking, drinking, pranks, and Alaska Young.  Alaska is beautiful, witty, moody, and self-destructive girl , and Pudge is fascinated with her.  When some of the weekday warriors drag Pudge out of his bed, mummify him in duct tape and throw him in the lake, the Colonel vows to have revenge.  The weekday warriors dunked Pudge because they believe that the Colonel ratted out Paul and Marya, two students who were expelled the previous year for drinking, smoking and other things. I don’t want to ruin anything for you readers. Enjoy reading this book!

Personal Opinion:
What I really liked about this book is that there were some parts which I was not expecting. It did eventually have some twists and turns. I really like it for another reason, for learning about the experiences of students going to a boarding school.

I recommend this book to people who like sad and moving stories.

Level:  4eme and over.

I rate this book 5 stars because it is just amazing and John Green is just an amazing writer.
