The unmissable first novel from bestselling and award-winning author of THE FAULT IN OUR STARS.
Miles Halter is fascinated by famous last words – and tired of his safe, boring and rather lonely life at home. He leaves for boarding school filled with cautious optimism, to seek what the dying poet Francois Rabelais called the “Great Perhaps.” Much awaits Miles at Culver Creek, including Alaska Young. Clever, funny, screwed-up, and dead sexy, Alaska will pull Miles into her labyrinth and catapult him into the Great Perhaps.
Looking for Alaska brilliantly chronicles the indelible impact one life can have on another.

The beginning of 2018 - when I read this book for the first time. I was 18. I don’t know why, but I cried many times while reading (spoiler: the book is sad after the middle), maybe the book influenced me that way, or I'm an emotional person. But I remember one thing for sure, I also, as the main character from this book, “went” to look not for “Great Perhaps” but for “Satisfying Perhaps”. Well, 2 years have passed already, but I'm still in search. You can say, "C'omon only 2 years, a whole life ahead." But you know what? And after 10 years, 20..I will still be in search. I thought: I became wiser. I thought: I know my direction. I thought: what I give will come back to me ... To this day, I have always given more, and in response they have more and more disappointed. And I have already come to terms with the fact that I'm not the most-lucky girl in the world. And for two years it would seem so little for "some kind of perhaps", but this number for someone is a lifetime. In short, after RE-READING the book, I realized that life is a search. Search - how to get out of this maze of suffering. Know one thing, it does not matter whether we find our “Great Perhaps” or not, WE ARE ALL GOING (to the same place).

You spend your whole life stuck in the labyrinth, thinking about how you’ll escape it one day, and how awesome it will be, and imagining that future keeps you going, but you never do it. You just use the future to escape the present.

Easy to read. Provides an interesting perspective on death and afterlife. Characters are real and flawed.

‘I go to seek a Great Perhaps.’

"Je aller chercher un Grand peut-être.’
