Ihan hauska, mielenkiintoinen ja vetävä. Jätti kuitenkin ilman suurempia lukukokemuksia ja henkilöhahmot jäivät etäisiksi. Aika unohdettava, vaikkakin viihdyttävä.

Alaska adalah seorang anak SMA yang hidupnya dihabiskan untuk mencari jalan keluar dari labirin. Pudge adalah seorang anak SMA yang pindah sari sekolah lamanya dengan harapan menemukan kemungkinan besar di sekolah barunya. Di malam kepindahannya ke sekolah barunya, Pudge bertemu dengan Alaska di pinggir danau bagaikan takdir. Mungkinkah ini kemungkinan besarnya yang pertama?

Suatu malam Alaska menanyakan bagaimana mencari jalan keluar dari labirin dan Pudge tidak menyangka bahwa ia akan menawabnya pada ujian akhir kelas agama nya, setelah kejadian itu terjadi.

Buku ini buat aku ketawa pas kejadian gegar otaknya si Pudge. Parah sih ngakak abis. Terus ending nya buat aku bingung dulu awalnya ada apa ini sebenernya. Kenapa Alaska melakukan hal yang ga masuk akal? Tapi akhirnya kejawab sih kenapa.

The Great Perhaps is both the most annoying concept ever but also necessary. However else are we supposed survive this awful world. People die. People fall apart. And indeed we are all going.

I like John Green's novels so far. However, I must admit that I had some difficulties to attached myself to some characters. Alaska's character is quite the character. I had some difficulty following her up and down mood swings she was experiencing and yet I saw myself in her. The story is sad in itself, unlike many others, the reason why I found this novel sad isn't the trigger. It is much more about the feelings of helplessness and incomprehension that come with an event like this that have upset me.
Spoiler Losing a person is a sad time for most people, but experiencing a loss like this is really not a situation I would want to live.
Some passages were very difficult to read, the details really made it easy for me to put myself in the shoes of various characters. In short, another good story by John Green!!!

J'aime bien les romans de John Green jusqu'à présent. Toutefois, je dois avouer que j'ai eu certaines difficultés à m'attacher à certains personnages. Le personnage d'Alaska est tout un personnage. J'avais certaines difficultés à la suivre dans les sauts d'humeurs qu'elle vivait et pourtant je me suis vu en elle. L'histoire est triste en soi, par contre contrairement à bien d'autres, la raison pour laquelle j'ai trouvé ce roman triste n'est pas l'élément déclencheur. Il s'agit beaucoup plus des sentiments d'impuissance et d'incompréhension qui vient avec un évènement comme celui-ci qui m'ont bouleversé.
Spoiler La perte d'une personne est un moment triste pour la plupart des personnes, mais vivre une perte comme celle-ci ce n'est vraiment pas une situation dans laquelle je voudrais me trouver.
Certains passages ont été très difficiles à lire, les détails faisaient vraiment en sorte que je me mettais facilement dans la peau de divers personnages. Bref une autre bonne histoire de John Green !!!
