Looking for Alaska

Looking for Alaska - John Green The reason I gave this book three stars, when it could easily deserve four, is because of the characters. I have a real issue with Green's characterization in this novel, which I find shocking because his characters in his other books are amazing and so relatable. I didn't believe these people. I couldn't relate to Pudge, The Colonel and Alaska because they didn't seem like real people to me. This was frustrating, especially after reading An Abundance of Katherines and Paper Towns. The only character I truly liked was Takumi, but I wish I could have enjoyed the others more.

Overall, this book is amazingly written. The ending was perfect. I remembering describing the feeling i got as a "brain orgasm" and I stick by it! I recommend this book to fans of smart YA, but I would recommend AAOK and PT way before Looking for Alaska.
