“and at last i see the light, and it’s like the fog has lifted”
Long time no blog!
Actually i already made a blog about this book a couple days ago but FATE was freakingly stubborn, my laptop just shut itself down… so much for ruining a perfect time. well, i didn’t recovered the blog and i got so frustrated that i ruptured my twitter. lol.
so i’m starting from scratch AGAIN.
Looking for Alaska is about a girl named Alaska, well she is not the main character but she vital point of the story because the main character was in love with her. Alaska was a screw-up, she is a happy-go-lucky person but a very smart girl indeed. she has many vices- like smoking, drinking, having sex (which is strictly prohibited in their school). Miles, on the other hand, WAS a good boy before entering the boarding school, he was greatly influenced by Alaska. She was his FIRST LOVE… wiiieee!
The thing is, Alaska has a horrible past. There is this deal between them that Alaska asked Miles to find out a way out of “The Labyrinth”. Well, the Labyrinth symbolizes the sufferings in life. For Alaska, the best way to go out of this maze is “Straight and Fast” literally. She died because of that.
After Alaska went, Miles was greatly devastated. He and his friends started to investigate the reason behind Alaska’s death. He cannot forgive himself because he helped Alaska go away that time, and he thought that he is the one responsible of her death. Later he found out that he was not guilty. It was Alaska’s choice and it was her fate. He knows that if Alaska was there, she would have forgive him because that’s what she is, a screw-up but a true friend indeed.
The main point of the story is that, WE CHOOSE FOR OURSELVES. the environment and the people around us are just factors but in the end we are the one who has the greatest power to choose of what we can be. Thus we are the ones who are responsible for our actions. We can do everything that we think we can do. What the mind achieve, the body will conceive.
that’s my favorite line. :)
PS. MILES’ ESSAY WAS PRETTY GOOD, READ THE BOOK AND FIND OUT… xoxo
