I'm not too big of a John Green fan, but I liked LFA. It was better than TFIOS, in my opinion. Or maybe I liked it better because it was more gritty, because I'm weird like that.

I'm not really a huge fan of this book. The characters really irritated me and I found the plot predictable...


message 6: by [deleted user] (new)

I like it but the fault in our stars was better

Yeah same. A strange hard life


message 24: by Erin, Director of Fun and Games (new)

Erin (eisawesome) | 1215 comments Mod
Yeah but when is life normal and easy


message 25: by Jordyn, Organizer Lieutenant (new)

Jordyn | 2757 comments Mod
Very true. I guess stranger and harder than the norm?


message 26: by Erin, Director of Fun and Games (new)

Erin (eisawesome) | 1215 comments Mod
Yeah, but when you think about it, life is no fun when it is the norm


message 27: by Kynkynsmc (new)

Kynkynsmc (little infinities) | 152 comments yea normals boring


message 28: by Erin, Director of Fun and Games (new)

Erin (eisawesome) | 1215 comments Mod
It is, but what is normal. Everyone and thing is different so what is normal


message 29: by Jordyn, Organizer Lieutenant (new)

Jordyn | 2757 comments Mod
I know right.


message 30: by Erin, Director of Fun and Games (new)

Erin (eisawesome) | 1215 comments Mod
Everyone thinks that they are normal, but that's only in fairytails


message 31: by [deleted user] (new)

Yes I guess we like thinking we are average


message 32: by Erin, Director of Fun and Games (new)

Erin (eisawesome) | 1215 comments Mod
Yeah I guess so


message 33: by Caitlin (new)

Caitlin (mockingjay_fire) | 22 comments I really did enjoy the book and it taught me so much about letting that someone go once theyve left and not to get drunk (for obvious reasons). I thought the book was one of John Green best's along with TFIOS and Paper Towns.


message 34: by Jordyn, Organizer Lieutenant (new)

Jordyn | 2757 comments Mod
Yea exactly(:


message 35: by [deleted user] (new)

That describes it perfectly for me


message 36: by Maya (new)

Maya (ladycarstairs31) | 504 comments I really like looking for Alaska. sad but good, a typical John Green


message 37: by Jordyn, Organizer Lieutenant (new)

Jordyn | 2757 comments Mod
Maya-Yep! Emotional, great, meaningful: the definition of John green books


message 38: by Jam (new)

Jam | 175 comments i like this better than paper towns. though, it made me feel empty after reading it.


message 39: by Jordyn, Organizer Lieutenant (new)

Jordyn | 2757 comments Mod
Empty as in you wanted more or empty upset?


message 40: by Jam (new)

Jam | 175 comments empty wanted more.


message 41: by Jordyn, Organizer Lieutenant (new)

Jordyn | 2757 comments Mod
Same. But I loved the way it went. I wish there was a prequel of Alaska's life!!!


message 42: by Jam (new)

Jam | 175 comments i know right? that is what I was thinking! i wanted to know Alaska better.


message 43: by Jordyn, Organizer Lieutenant (new)

Jordyn | 2757 comments Mod
Yeah same! I still loved her though.


message 44: by Jam (new)

Jam | 175 comments me too.


message 45: by Jordyn, Organizer Lieutenant (new)

Jordyn | 2757 comments Mod
I also REALLY loved Pudge! You?


message 46: by Jam (new)

Jam | 175 comments I do too! :)) He was this guy who wants to do something new but doesn't want to go overboard. He was actually like me! haha.


message 47: by Jordyn, Organizer Lieutenant (new)

Jordyn | 2757 comments Mod
Yeah he's like me in so many ways as well(: Like the whole not having great friendships before them and the wanting to do something great. Im still waiting for my Great Perhaps!


message 48: by Jam (new)

Jam | 175 comments me too! I want to have that adventure to experience that Great Perhaps. Also, after reading this book, I, too, was thinking on how I will answer the question "how will you get out of this labyrinth?"


message 49: by Jordyn, Organizer Lieutenant (new)

Jordyn | 2757 comments Mod
Yeah same! Like this book personally has inspired my life. Like there's an easy way out of the labyrinth but we shudnt take that way and so the true way is to forgive. And I believe that's the only way to make it through the labyrinth and get to our great perhaps. To forgive eachother and ourselves for mistakes and things. Haha that was deep..


message 50: by Jam (new)

Jam | 175 comments That was really deep. haha. But I do agree with you (and with Pudge) that to get out of the labyrinth, we must forgive. As in, forgive forgive.
