This is my first John Green book. I had seen a few of his youtube videos and thought he was an interesting. I bought the book with no expectations and I have to say it was a pretty decent read. It tells the story Miles Halter. He is kind of a loner and a misfit. He passes his time learning the last words of famous people, reading the ends of biographies just to learn them. He lives his home in Florida and heads to a boarding school looking for, "A Great Perhaps". I don't know exactly how to say this, but this book is so readable. I couldn't put it down. I wanted, no I needed to know what happens next. I also found that I loved The characters of MIles and The colonel. I bought in to their friendship and you could tell why they clicked well. But overall I definitely enjoyed, though the ending was a bit disappointing and I thought Alaska was kind of annoying. I can't deny I was sucked into the story and the characters in this book.
