UGG! Let me preface this review by saying that I LOVE John Green and think he does amazing work in the YA book community. As for his writing, I am not a fan.  I was very disappointed as “Looking for Alaska” was recommended to me SO many times and yet I couldn’t for the life of me figure out what made it so special. The characters were talking too much and the story just followed them around on their boring day to day lives. Nothing exciting happened until the end. The whole book was set up in chapters that counted down until “it happened” and I thought it made the story dull just waiting for the good part. It was also very predictable. Anyway, more on my blog later but those are my thoughts for now.
