Yes, it's a completely awesome book. Have you read other books by John Green?

Yes, I have read Finding Alaska (just ok), and Paper Towns, which I absolutely love.  How old are you?

I loved Looking for Alaska. :smileyvery-happy: and Paper Towns kind of made me depressed at the end. I'm 18.

Well, that makes sense. It was kind of juvenile. The book was almost like a memoir, but probably exaggerated a little. John went to a boarding school, he played lots of pranks, there was an against-the-rules smoking area, and he had a religion teacher a lot like the one in the book.

 

I love all the books that John Green has written. I can't wait for his next.

I really liked An Abundance of Katherines, I think about it everytime I hear or see anything about Archduke Franz Ferdinand :smileyhappy: Looking for Alaska was just kind of a meh book to me...
