(22)
Before . Miles Pudge Halter s whole life has been one big non-event. Then he heads off to the sometimes crazy, possibly unstable, and anything-butboring world of Culver Creek Boarding School, and his life becomes the opposite of safe. Because down the hall is Alaska Young. The gorgeous, clever, funny, sexy, self-destructive, screwed-up, and utterly fascinating Alaska Young pulls Pudge into her world, launches him into a new life, and steals his heart. After . Nothing is ever the same. The Printz Award winning modern classic is now available in the successful Premium Edition format with a bonus reading guide and a letter from John Green.

Zitat
"Miles's narration is alive with sweet, self-deprecating humor, and his obvious struggle to tell the story truthfully adds to his believability." School Library Journal "What sings and soars in this gorgeously told tale is Green's mastery of language and the sweet, rough edges of Pudge's voice. Girls will cry and boys will find love, lust, loss and longing in Alaska's vanilla-and-cigarettes scent." Kirkus "The novel's chief appeal lies in Miles's well-articulated lust and his initial excitement about being on his own for the first time." Publishers Weekly

Indescribably brilliant. The first half of this book draws much influence from Salanger's "Catcher in the Rye",the second half is pure genius from Green himself.A future classic.

Alaska is like a celebrity for Pudge - beautiful to watch and unattainable.
A story about friendship, love and not placing people you love on a pedestal.

„Looking for words...“

Vanessa Pludra, Thalia-Buchhandlung Berlin

Yes I'm really looking for words to describe this wonderful book. Miles isn't very popular at his school but at least he's good at knowing peoples last words. After transfering to a private school in Alabama to find "the great perhaps" he finally meets some friends and with them the fascinating Alaska. At the end of the year a tragedy Yes I'm really looking for words to describe this wonderful book. Miles isn't very popular at his school but at least he's good at knowing peoples last words. After transfering to a private school in Alabama to find "the great perhaps" he finally meets some friends and with them the fascinating Alaska. At the end of the year a tragedy happens and Miles is left with the question: "What did I do wrong?".
You just have to love Greens characters because they are all so unique and fascinating! This book deals with every aspect of life: love, lust, pranks, happiness, sadness and death. It even attempts to answer the question what life is all about and I think after reading this novel you have a slight idea about it. I advise every teenager above 14 years to read this book; you will not regret it and and certainly learn something for life!

Er lässt sich relativ schnell lesen, die Vokabeln werden in dieser Ausgabe gut erläutert. Die Geschichte an sich fand ich eher eintönig, jedoch gab es auf jeden Fall auch Stellen, die schön zu lesen waren. Für den Unterricht ist er aber - im Gegensatz zu anderen Lektüren - eine gute Abwechslung, also lasst euch nicht abschrecken :)

A thoughtful, fast-paced book that is deeply moving and absolutely wonderful. Not just for teenagers!
