This review is from: Looking For Alaska (Hardcover)
As a student at the school Culver Creek is based on, I enjoyed the book on two levels. I enjoyed it first as literature. Though the dialogue is occasionally too clever, and the end includes a little more explanation of Alaska's last night than I'd have liked, Looking for Alaska is a wonderful book about taking risks, exploring, experiencing life, and coming of age. I enjoyed it second as a book about my high school, Indian Springs School. I've been to the stables and that infamous TV room, gotten records from the school judiciary, I know the man the Eagle is based on, etc. I just want to say that in addition to being a great read in and of itself, Looking for Alaska captures Indian Springs School perfectly. John Green has a great ability to make his scenes and characters breathe, a great mind, and a great heart. I definitely recommend Looking for Alaska.
