WHAT THE HECK

Looking for Alaska - John Green

There's been a lot of hype about John Green especially since the movie "the Fault in our Stars" hit the theaters. I finally decided to pick up "Looking for Alaska"....with absolutely no idea of what I was getting myself into. I had to borrow this book twice just because I couldn't bring myself to finish the book the first time.

 

Long story short, I thought the most interesting development occurred late into the novel. Having said this, the novel didn't have much substance to begin with. Am I just getting too old to appreciate Young Adult fiction?

I'm all for second chances.. so let's give Mr. Green another shot shall we?
