Looking for Alaska - John Green This guy can completely tell a story.

If any friends who read this wants to talk about the ending, I would be interested. I'm not 100% sure about it.

Also what do you think about the women he writes. Particularly if you are female. Personally I love his females, but a) I'm male and b) I'd wager to say they're a bit more idealized than his males? What do you think.

BUT really totally good. I read this almost nonstop over the course of 24 hours. I did not cry, like Meg did. But still. I will say this:


About 3/4 of the way through it, I put the book aside and was puttering around the house, totally down and thinking "Man, we should just get take-out tonight, everyone's way too sad to cook or deal with dishes." And then I kind of startled and was like "Whoa there sailor, you're not in mourning, you're /reading a book about people who are in mourning/." So that was interesting! The guy can tell a story, like I say.
