Possible floor plan of Pudge and The Colonel
Maybe this is what it looks like...
.... or this. We will never know. Until he comes out with a movie!
"So this guy," I said, standing in the doorway of the living room. "Francois Rabelais. He was this poet. And his last words were 'I go to see a Great Perhaps.' That's why I'm going. So I don't have to wait until I die to start seeking a Great Perhaps." The reason Pudge quoted famous peoples' last words was because he was fascinated with it. He was a very intelligent kid.
When he came to boarding school he got bunked with a guy named "The Colonel" who was friends with Alaska. Pudge started to have a crush on Alaska but Alaska had a boyfriend.
The Colonel (Chip)
The Colonel and Alaska are the brains for the pranking between them and the Warriors. The reason The Colonel doesn't like the Warriors is because they are rich and snobby. They had everything he didn't.
Lara- Lara was a fellow student and she was just a distraction for Pudge. Alaska set them up because she felt that Pudge needed a girlfriend. Lara was a distraction from feelings he felt for Alaska because Alaska had a boyfriend.
Protagonist and Antagonist
Character VS. Self: Pudge throughtout the story is trying to find his true identity. In the beginning, he starts off as Miles, and when he starts attending Culver Creek High School he is now Pudge. He starts drinking alcohol, smoking. After the death of Alaska, he finally finds the real him. The struggle to find who he is, is a character vs. self conflict. (The Great Perhaps) Another Character VS. Self is Alaska facing herself because she is facing depression. Whether the accident is an actual accident or whether she tried to kill herself.. depression won.
