D of his safe boring and rather lonely life at home He leaves for boarding school filled with cautious optimism to seek what the dying poet Francois Rabelais called the Great Perhaps Much awaits Miles at Culver Creek includi That's me realizing I was about to give a big one star to a super popular book on Goodreads It didn't stop me This book was beyond stupidMiles is a little nerd boy from Florida he is going away to boarding school hoping for a new life or maybe his Great Perhaps The Great Perhaps comes from a minute reference to some poet Thrown in to this book to make it all edgy and shit Fail Once he gets there his roommate the reuisite character that is so poor but super smart befriends him The Colonel aka Chip takes Miles now known as Pudge under his wing and now he has friendsIncluding the super special Alaska she is the beautiful cool and allusive girl She is moody and spontaneous Of course the boys all love her milkshakeincluding our Pudge That smoking line? It's from the book head deskThen another thingand this was a big one for me John Green you have enough dang money that if you are going to write southern characters at least try TRY to get them halfway right You just put every stupid stereotype known into the characters that are southern for this book You made them all sound stupidIf they didn't go to this wonderful boarding school that erased their accent they sounded like ignorant hicks I hate to tell you honey but last time I check Florida is also in the south They have accents too You lost a star just for not taking the two seconds to research southern speech I've lived here my whole life and I have never heard someone speak like you had several characters speaking Anyways for me This book glorified the whole oh I'm so dark don't you want to be me shit FOR ME view spoilerIt glorified suicide even though Alaska technically did not commit suicide hide spoiler
