REVIEW (May Contain Spoilers)
During the time I was reading this story, I had a childhood friend pass away tragically in a truck accident. Reading from that point on in the story suddenly became very real and hard. I found myself reading how others dealt with losing someone. However hard it was to continue reading, I did and I am glad I did. As a book with many last words that were not as profound as we all hope last words be, you begin to question what did they mean in their last moments in life. Last words are not even finite sometimes and grasping onto that idea from the book changed quite a few things for me. It was nice to read that we are more than our lives and that our lives live far longer then we do. Whether it be through the people we leave behind or the lives that we had the pleasure of influencing.
This book is great for anyone who wants a realistic read about friends, first loves and endings. Looking for Alaska is a hard read in the sense that it is an emotional read, like other John Green novels, but very worth it!
I rate this book 4 out of 5 stars.
