Looking for Alaska - John Green

Looking for Alaska is a very good book that I didn't finish. I do not enjoy heart wrenching books (or movies for that matter - I've never seen Beaches) and this book definitely slaps your emotions around a little. So, I started reading it and was greatly enjoying the story, then I became suspicious that it was heading towards an emotional cliff, so I skipped ahead, had my suspicions confirmed and then did kind of a book dissection where I jumped around to glean the plot points without getting sniffy over the narrative. (Okay, I did get a little sniffy, but did I mention that it's really well written?) So, would I recommend Looking for Alaska? Yes. Have I read the whole thing myself? Uhm...
