Alaska starts planning a group date so that Miles will finally go out with Lara. Takumi learns Paul and Marya will be visiting Culver Creek at an upcoming basketball game.
Alaska's boyfriend Jake comes by for the date night. The date goes south when Miles is concussed and Marya accuses Alaska of being the rat. Sara becomes appalled by The Colonel taking Alaska's side, and breaks up with him.
Takumi tells The Colonel that he'd seen Alaska leaving to The Eagle's house the day Paul and Marya were expelled.
Alaska escapes Culver Creek with Jake but later leaves him, believing she isn't good enough. Returning to the school, Alaska is taken to The Eagle's house for leaving campus without permission, where she pleads with him to let her stay at Culver Creek.
Ami Canaan Mann. With Takumi and The Colonel avoiding her, Alaska asks Miles to stay with her at Culver Creek over Thanksgiving.
By chance, Miles talks to Jake over the phone, discovering Alaska has broken off contact with him. The two loot the student dorms for alcohol and porn.
After being asked about it by Miles, Alaska calls Jake and officially breaks up with him. After finding out the two are alone at school, The Colonel's mother Dolores invites them to their home for Thanksgiving.
The group initially has a good time, but Miles' desire to sleep with Alaska and The Colonel's refusal to reconnect leaves Alaska more isolated than ever.
The Colonel is bothered by seeing that Sara is now dating Longwell. Miles tries to convince Lara to go to the school dance with him.
During the night, the Weekend Warriors flood Alaska's dorm, destroying a large section of her Life's Library. Alaska, Takumi, and The Colonel reconcile and formulate a plan to sabotage the Warriors' college applications while everyone is at the dance.
Miles is asked to be lookout, which nearly ruins his date with Lara. The Eagle nearly catches them, but Takumi and Miles set off fireworks to draw him away.
Believe it or not, kids, there was a time when novelists knew you were smart enough to use an encyclopedia! And what of the gratuitous crudity and innuendo in this book?
Alaska is utterly objectified. The first time we meet her, she's bragging about getting felt up. To a pair of boys, no less, one of whom she doesn't even know.
When she's having a supposedly deep conversation by the pond with Miles, he's more focused on her curves, which he describes over and over again in detail, than in anything she's saying.
It's the Male Gaze Run Amok. I understand that men are easily distracted by the bodies of women, especially women as beautiful as we're told Alaska is.
But Miles is so filled with lust for her that it's uncomfortable to read about. If I have to read about men looking at women and being horny, I'll stick with Ovid.
He can get disgusting, but he's a far superior writer to Green in any translation, and at least in Ovid many of the women do not seek to be objectified.
Also, Metamorphoses boasts such niceties as symbolism, flashes of genuine humor, and explosions. All in all, this is a terrible book which somehow won awards and gained its author a huge, worshipful following.
He has since rewritten it many times, changing the characters' names and tweaking the subject matter slightly. All his books pretend to be profound when they're really just paeans to narcissism, nihilism, and bad decisions.
His fans gobble this stuff up because it makes them feel special and unique without challenging them to change their lives or examine their characters.
Worse, Green's genre can be a slippery slope to other "profound" YA novels such as the potentially harmful Thirteen Reasons Why , which in light of its alarmingly popular Netflix adaptation will soon be getting a review from me.
In short, don't give this man your money, time or brain cells. View all 51 comments. Jul 01, Darth J rated it it was ok Shelves: disappointing.
I had been putting off reviewing this book for a while. It also took me much longer to read than I thought it would. Having read An Abundance of Katherines and Paper Towns first, I can say that Green seems to repeat a lot of the same themes and personalities.
This may have been his first book, but it was probably my least favorite of the ones I've already read. And no, I will not read The Fault in Our Stars for reasons.

As a teenager, I hated it then and I don't want to rehash it now. I didn't care about any of the characters except Miles and I hated how he just went along with everything thrown in his path without a second thought--the smoking, drinking, porn, etc.

I know it's aimed at teens, but I feel a lot of pages that could have been used into expanding the character's personalities, were instead about drinking, smoking and sex.
I mean, teenagers do think about that, but for God's sake they are only 15 or so in the book! What would they do at 20 or 25 if they start this kind of behavior so young?
I don't know, I feel it's just a cheap method of impression using all that stuff so much in a book, very far of what I would call "literature".

No, this one is not as bittersweet as "The Fault in Our Stars", but still, this is unputdownable supreme! Its the type of literature that gets one excited about reading, about reminiscing about adolescence and school.

I belong to the generation that enjoyed St. That was shown here in the Philippines when I was in my first year of working after college and I was able to relate to many of its characters so I watched it twice or thrice.
Oh well, I was with my girlfriend then and you know how dark and cold were the theatres during those years when they were not yet inside I belong to the generation that enjoyed St.
Oh well, I was with my girlfriend then and you know how dark and cold were the theatres during those years when they were not yet inside the malls.
So, now at 47, graying and with joints aching especially during cold mornings, I am just too old to appreciate a story about a bunch of young college kids who get into all troubles precisely because they are young.
They drink booze, smoke, defy school rules, swear, have free sex and, in their attempt to cover their foolishness, do various kinds of franks towards the school authorities.
I definitely had my share of foolishness when I was at their age. Last Sunday, my daughter had an outburst inside the car saying that she did not have a friend at school.
My daughter who was very active in school leading the Robotics Team, emceeing school programs, leading the daily prayer as one of the school DJs, being class president for at least two years and playing various kinds of sports during annual intramurals.
She said that she felt alone she is an only child and she oftentimes ate lunch alone. My wife and I felt sad about her revelations. This was something that I and my wife did not experience when we were in high school as we were low-profile people then and even now in our respective life circles.
We advised her to just make the most of what can still be done for the rest of the senior year - probably concentrate with a few friends instead of reaching out to all — as it is just 8 months before graduation.
In college, she will probably have a totally new set of friends so she can forge new ties and hope those will be stronger and more lasting.
Anyway, friends come and go. Those classmates-friends we had in college tend to stick with us after our school years as we normally land in the same field or industry.
Moreover, in the end what really matter are the learnings from each friend we encounter in our lives. Learnings that help us to become better persons as we take our journey in this thing called life.
John Green shows us the generation of today. His characters may not be totally different from the St. However, this is their time.

The bar was so low. THE BAR WAS SO LOW. I loathe this book. Everything about it makes me want to rip out its pages, burn them, and then throw their ashes into the ocean.
Actually, that would be cruel to the fish. Poor fish don't deserve it. Anyway, I need to break this up because there is no way I'm going to be remotely coherent without it.
THE WRITING Two words: pretentious trash. I've heard a lot of negative and positive things about John Green's writing, but it was so much worse than I ever The bar was so low.
I've heard a lot of negative and positive things about John Green's writing, but it was so much worse than I ever imagined. He presumes to know the brain of a teenager, which apparently is some profound, earnest entity that is constantly reflecting on philosophy and dissecting the crevices of the human mind.
And why make everything so intense?? Nobody cares. How normal people write: We picked up the table and moved it to the dining room.
How John Green writes: We gently lifted the smooth, ornately carved oak table, surface worn by the hands of countless of our ancestors, and slowly proceeded to the dining room, where we lowered it onto the soft rug that covered most of the earthy cherry wood floor.
Can you just He has an obsession with the last words of people. He memorizes them for no real reason. And that's what he's trying to find in life.
His own Great Perhaps. First of all, teenagers don't care. They get too much homework to worry about Their Ultimate Fate and Their Great Perhaps.
Second, what even is a Great Perhaps? Oh, wait, it's just a plot device to get Miles and Alaska together.
Miles is nicknamed Pudge because he's skinny. This is supposed to be funny. And then there's Alaska, who is so shallow and superficial and ANNOYING.
Her excuse for this is her tRaGiC dArK pAsT. Your backstory is not an excuse for you to be a jerk. Neither are your looks, which are apparently good, even though I still have no idea what you actually look like.
THE PLOT Miles is sent off to a boarding school, but he doesn't care, because he's getting away from his fat Christian friends. I'm not exaggerating.
This happens on the fifth page, I believe? Something like that. Anyway, he gets to the boarding school and he meets Chip, who is really rude but gets a pass because he looks "like a scale model of Adonis.
I'm going to stop before I actually throw up. Alaska is described as a feminist book-lover, but all she does is smoke cigarettes and make witty remarks.
She's supposed to be smart. I think she's an idiot. Anyway, Miles treats her like an object, which is probably the thing that annoys me most about this book.
Besides tHe GrEaT pErHaPs. I think not. I actually DNFed this because I hated it so much. This book: Me: 0. John Green books were always hit or miss fo Technically I'm in that demographic, but I loathe John Green.
John Green books were always Final rating: 4. We need never be hopeless, because we can never be irreparably broken. We think that we are invincible because we are.
I couldn't put it down - just like i expected. John Green is seriously talented, and even though i don't like this book as much as i love his " The Fault in Our Stars ", it was still wonderful book.
I have to admit that Final rating: 4. I have to admit that i was on verge of crying on almost every page from the "After" part.
And then, in the end, i did cry a little. Let out a tear or two I liked Miles a lot, he was cool, interesting and nice Colonel, on the other hand, was fantastic character, crazy, with strong personality Takumi was great too, even though i wished there was more of him; Lara was here and there, likeable and cute girl and in the end we have Alaska Alaska is a different story Sure, she may be crazy and she might be awesomely defensive of womankind, but overall i didn't feel much about her.
But, she was still loveable. She didn't even glance at me. She just smiled toward the television and said, 'You never get me.

Boy obsesses over Girl, Girl does not give much of a damn. Girl is impulsive and difficult to understand and shows many signs of being mentally unbalanced, but Boy does not care because she is hot.
Story continues in this vein for a while, and then Girl does something that causes all hell to break loose, goes totally off the rails, and Boy is left to pick up the pieces and continue worshipping Girl, although not quite in the same way he did before.
Katherine I is mostly normal, although still a constant source of mystery and worship. Margot Roth Speigleman is Alaska Young on medication.
And Alaska Young is Remember the mermaids? But the second you get close to them, they grab you and drag you under the water and drown you.
Alaska Young is a mermaid. He falls, hard, for Alaska and bravely endures her ups and downs, and he suffers for it along with everyone else who was foolish enough to fall in love with her.
She stubbornly remains a mystery throughout the book, refusing to explain her actions or moods, and this continues to the moment when she drives off campus, drunk and raging, and ends up driving her car straight into a police car the siren was on, the lights flashing that was parked on the highway at an accident site.
She is killed instantly, and even after her death Miles and his friends continue to be consumed by her. The thing I love about John Green and the reason this gets five stars, despite my griping is the way he writes about emotions.
I cannot stop thinking that she is dead, and I cannot stop thinking that she cannot possibly be dead. People do not just die.
It is so cold today — literally freezing — and I imagine running to the creek and diving in headfirst, the creek so shallow that my hands scrape against the rocks, and my body slides into the cold water, the shock of the cold giving way to numbness, and I would stay there In all the Before sections, it just felt like the characters were stalling for time, waiting for that inevitable disaster to happen.
Once it does, I suddenly became completely invested in the book and decided that I needed to give it five stars. And if Alaska took her own life, that is the hope I wish I could have given her.
Forgetting her mother, forgetting her friends and herself — those are awful things, but she did not need to fold into herself and self-destruct.
Those awful things are survivable, because we are as indestructible as we believe ourselves to be. We thinks that we are invincible because we are.
We cannot be born, and we cannot die. Like all energy, we can only change shapes and sizes and manifestations.
They forget that when they get old. They get scared of losing and failing. Watch the video. Olivia Wilde and Zoe Lister-Jones interview each other about their Sundance film How It Ends.

The book was ultimately kept in the curriculum by the school board after a unanimous school board vote with the stipulation that the teachers of the 11th grade class give the parents a decision to have their children read an alternate book.
Looking for Alaska was defended by the school district because they felt it dealt with themes relevant to students of this age, such as death, drinking and driving, and peer pressure.
Further controversy came from the cover art. In August , Green acknowledged that the extinguished candle on the cover leads to "an improbable amount of smoke", and explained that the initial cover design did not feature the candle.
Green said that certain book chains were uncomfortable with displaying or selling a book with a cover that featured cigarette smoke, so the candle was added beneath the smoke.
Further paperback releases of the book also have the candle removed. In , the West Ada School District in Meridian, Idaho removed Looking for Alaska from all of its middle school libraries.
The school district originally received a complaint from a parent on the grounds of the presence of foul language and mentions of actions like smoking and suicide.
The district librarian looked into parental complaints along with reviews of the novel suggesting that it was best suited for high schoolers and made the decision to pull the book from the middle school library.
In in Marion County, Kentucky , parents urged schools to drop it from the curriculum, referring to it as influencing students "to experiment with pornography, sex, drugs, alcohol and profanity.
After the challenge, students were given an alternate book for any parents who were not comfortable with their children reading the book.
One parent still insisted on getting the book banned and filed a Request for Reconsideration on the basis that Looking for Alaska would tempt students to experiment with drugs, alcohol, and sex despite the decisions made after the challenge.
Green defended his book in his vlog , Vlogbrothers. The video, entitled "I Am Not A Pornographer", describes the Depew High School challenge of Looking for Alaska and his frustration at the description of his novel as pornography.
Green explains the inclusion of the oral sex scene in Looking for Alaska stating, "The whole reason that scene in question exists in Looking for Alaska is because I wanted to draw a contrast between that scene, when there is a lot of physical intimacy, but it is ultimately very emotionally empty, and the scene that immediately follows it, when there is not a serious physical interaction, but there's this intense emotional connection.
He also disagrees with the way that groups of parents underestimate the intelligence of teenagers and their ability to analyze literature.
He ends with encouraging his viewers to attend the Depew School Board hearing to support the choice of parents, students, and teachers to have Looking for Alaska included in public schools.
The film rights to the novel were acquired by Paramount Pictures in The screenplay was potentially going to be written and directed by Josh Schwartz creator of The O.
Weber , screenwriters for Temple Hill Entertainment who had worked on adaptations for The Fault in Our Stars and Paper Towns , would be writing and executive producing for the film.
Later in , Green announced in a Vlogbrothers video and on social media that the film adaptation had once again been shelved indefinitely.
On May 9, , it was announced that Hulu would be adapting the novel into an 8-episode limited series. The series premiered on October 18, From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
