John Green has been one of my go-to authors for a while, I’ve read multiple books by him and I’m always left in awe of how he creates his characters, each one different from others and have unique charms to them. This one didn’t disappoint me either, the protagonist Pudge had a knack for knowing last words, and Alaska is portrayed as a character who loves recklessness and chaos but is beauty amidst it. Of course, these are not the only things that set them apart but these are some unlikely attributes about them that stuck with me. In the storyline, Pudge leaves his high school for boarding school while quoting the phrase “I go to seek a great perhaps”. He had been looking for a change and arriving at Culver Creek gave him the change he was looking for; he found friends, quite possibly love and adventures that he would never forget. I love the fact that there are two sections the before and the after, it really shows how everything changes once you meet people in life and sometimes it's astonishing to see how much they impact one's life. John Green does not shy away from expressing his thoughts on heavy topics, he depicts it through his writing which adds on to this book. Many quotes struck a chord in me, so many phrases and sentences had deeper underlying meanings which made this even more intriguing. Overall I loved reading this book, the storyline kept me hooked and I would read it over and over again!
