Review: Looking for Alaska by John Green

Looking for Alaska by John Green 4/5

After reading The Fault in Our Stars and falling in love with it, I had to read more of John Greens work and bought Looking for Alaska. I find this book a little tricky to review because although I enjoyed it and found it very thought provoking some of it was kind of awkward to read and in my opinion the second half fell a little flat. I did however love the first half and also the last chapter. I have to admit that I was very busy while reading the second half and could only read in small bits on occasion so it could just be me. Despite the fact the last half didn't capture me like the beginning it is a very good book. As always John Greens writing and characters are on point, he had me laughing and crying yet again. A profound book about life and death, full of deep and insightful words. Although it's classed as a young adult novel it's definitely not just for teenagers. Not quite as good as TFIOS but I would recommend giving it a read.
