Best novel adaptation ever
19 October 2019 | by pizzasteeeeveSee all my reviews

I've read so many novels and seen to many of them adapted that it's safe for me to say that this show is exactly how i pictured looking for alaska.

Even though I've read the book more times than i could count the show still jerked my tears and emotions.

The characters are not only as good as they were in the books, some of them are even better.

The additions to the story fit in so well that i actually wish they were in the book.

All and all looking for alaska is nothing less than a piece of art novel turned into a piece of art tv show
