I wanted to love Looking for Alaska by John Green, but I just didn’t. Maybe I just don’t get John Green. I enjoy his books, so far Paper Towns is my favorite, but I don’t love them the way everyone else does.
When I last mentioned Looking for Alaska I had high hopes. My husband and I laughed and commiserated with Miles (Pudge) as he integrated himself into his new boarding school, befriending Chip (The Colonel) and Takumi and falling head over heels for Alaska.
Then the “after” happens. I don’t want to say too much and give away the plot, but Pudge drove me crazy.
Despite not loving any of his books, I’m still not going to give up on John Green. An Abundnace of Katherines is still on my to read list.
