I had some trouble making it through the early bits because I was really uninvested in the Jared love story. (I think that was the point, so kudos, Erin.) But once they got engaged I ate it up - the ending was absolutely perfect. I was reeeaaally hop...more

5 stars for the essays, 3 for the stories. My favorite essays were Why We Care About Whales and the title piece.

The fiction was pretty depressing and not actually all that interesting to me. Seemed like a lot of college students taking drugs and bein...more

From its plot outline, this book looks like a cautionary tale about romanticizing mental illness. But it's surprisingly ambivalent about the manic pixie dream girl trope that it seems like it's trying to deconstruct. Hannah seems to buy into the narr...more

“What a treacherous thing to believe that a person is more than a person.”
John Green, Paper Towns

“The only way out of the labyrinth of suffering is to forgive.”
John Green, Looking for Alaska

John Green
“Imagining the future is a kind of nostalgia. (...) You spend your whole life stuck in the labyrinth, thinking about how you'll escape it one day, and how awesome it will be, and imagining that future keeps you going, but you never do it. You just use the future to escape the present.”
John Green, Looking for Alaska

John Green
“He was gone, and I did not have time to tell him what I had just now realized: that I forgave him, and that she forgave us, and that we had to forgive to survive in the labyrinth. There were so many of us who would have to live with things done and things left undone that day. Things that did not go right, things that seemed okay at the time because we could not see the future. If only we could see the endless string of consequences that result from our smallest actions. But we can’t know better until knowing better is useless. And as I walked back to give Takumi’s note to the Colonel, I saw that I would never know. I would never know her well enough to know her thoughts in those last minutes, would never know if she left us on purpose. But the not-knowing would not keep me from caring, and I would always love Alaska Young, my crooked neighbor, with all my crooked heart.”
John Green, Looking for Alaska

John Green
“Saying 'I notice you're a nerd' is like saying, 'Hey, I notice that you'd rather be intelligent than be stupid, that you'd rather be thoughtful than be vapid, that you believe that there are things that matter more than the arrest record of Lindsay Lohan. Why is that?' In fact, it seems to me that most contemporary insults are pretty lame. Even 'lame' is kind of lame. Saying 'You're lame' is like saying 'You walk with a limp.' Yeah, whatever, so does 50 Cent, and he's done all right for himself.”
John Green
