From what I hear, all Green's books have similar plots, so try Looking for Alaskaand Paper Townsby him
Just wanted to list a couple of my favorite quotes:
"What is the point of being alive if you don't at least try to do something remarkable? How very odd, to believe God gave you life, and yet not to think that life asks more of you than watching TV." p. 33
"Because like say I tell someone about my feral hog hunt. Even if it's a dumb story, telling it changes other people just the slightest little bit, just as living the story changes me...I will get forgotten, but the stories will last. And so we all matter - maybe less than a lot, but always more than none." p. 213
"Books are the ultimate Dumpees: put them down and they'll wait for you forever; pay attention to them and they always love you back." p. 110
Yeah, it's everywhere. Interesting change from the usual "ck" ending to "g," though I guess it was Norman Mailer's idea.
Boy, they sure talk about it a lot, though it isn't described really.
Some people get beat up.
Overall rating: ****
