Let’s talk about John Green, (no you didn’t stumble across our book column) and Hulu’s adaptation of his book “Looking for Alaska.” John Green is an author known for emotionally devastating his YA audience (and essentially anyone else who has read his books like “The Fault in Our Stars”).
Hulu’s adaptation of “Looking for Alaska” tells the story of Miles, an introvert with a penchant for collecting the last words of famous people, who changes schools in search of his “great perhaps” and hopefully friends. What he finds when he arrives at Culver Creek is more than he could have ever hoped for. He becomes fast friends with the Colonel, Takumi and Alaska. With his new friends Miles participates in a series of pranks at his school and finds himself infatuated with the enigmatic Alaska, a moody young woman who lives her life to the fullest.
