Looking for Alaska
What is it REALLY about?
The most important quote in this book also relates to the most important word, which is "How will I get out of this labyrinth?" This is important because even though these words are someone's last words, which Pudge was really interested in, this phrase is seen differently by each character. The whole idea of the labyrinth applies to them and is used by them throughout the rest of the book.
The most important sentence was " I forgave him, and that she forgave us, and that we had to forgive to survive in the labyrinth." This sentence was important because Pudge was realizing that forgiveness was a big part of moving on but he was unable to tell Takumi that he forgave him before he was gone.
