You're both the fire and the water that extinguishes it. You're the narrator, the protagonist, and the sidekick. You're the storyteller and the story told. You are somebody's something, but you are also your you.
- Aza Holmes, John Green's Turtles All The Way Down

"How can you be anything to your self? I mean, if you can be something to your self, then your self isn't, like, singular."
"You're right that self isn't simple, Aza. Maybe it's not even singular. Self is a plurality, but pluralities can also be integrated, right? Think of a rainbow. It's one arc of light, but also seven differently coloured arcs of light."

John Green: Menace Of Society
Curse the brilliant author of Fault In Our Stars and Looking For Alaska, for changing the way I look at everything so drastically and for crushing my heart into so many tiny pieces.

Title: Looking for Alaska
Author: John Green
Genre: Contemporary YA
Before. Miles “Pudge” Halter is done with his safe life at home. His whole life has been one big non-event, and his obsession with famous last words has only made him crave “the Great Perhaps” even more . He heads off to the sometimes crazy and anything-but-boring world of Culver Creek Boarding School, and his life becomes the opposite of safe. Because down the hall is Alaska Young. The gorgeous, clever, funny, feminist, self-destructive, screwed up, and utterly fascinating Alaska Young. She is an event unto herself. She pulls Pudge into her world, launches him into the Great Perhaps, and steals his heart. Then. . . .
After. Nothing is ever the same.
Love, friendship,self discovery, first-time experiences, life, death, before, after, finding meaning in life and learning to forgive. That is what Looking for Alaska is all about
This is one of those stories that is so difficult to summarize/review.
''Looking for Alaska'' reminded me so much of ''The Perks of Being a Wallflower''. There was definitely the same vibe of boy goes to new school, boy is quiet, boy meets loud friends and boy falls in love.
This novel like most of John Green’s novels is terribly sad. It was painful to go through the second part of the book the #after , but over all I enjoyed it and the characters are relatable and easy to love. There are so many great quotes and moments in this story.
The screen adaptation is just as much enjoyable and wonderful as the novel. I think the producers did an excellent job. I highly recommend both the novel and the tv show.
