Looking For Alaska
By: John Green
Chip “The Colonel” Martin- Chip is a stocky, nerdy looking young man, who has gone to Culver Creek for a very long time. He is Pudge’s roommate, and he gives Miles the nickname “Pudge”. He may also have a crush on Alaska, just like Miles does, but respects Miles feelings about liking Alaska first. Chip becomes Pudge's best-friend at Culver Creek.
Takumi Harihoto- Takumi is a friend to both Chip and Pudge. He is the "funny guy" of the group, as well as a great rapper. Takumi also has a small crush on Alaska and finds her to be beautiful. Takumi is the friend of Chip and Pudge, but he feels like he sometimes gets left out of their friendship and group.
Alaska Young- Alaska is the beautiful, smart, rebellious girl whom Pudge falls in love with. When Alaska was a child, her mother had a seizure because of a small brain aneurism. Alaska did not save her mother so she died. Alaska’s father blamed her for it and she regrets it, for the rest of her life, throughout the story.
-This passage is important because it explains Alaska's true feelings about when her mother died. Alaska feels guilty everyday of her life. She is constantly reminding herself that it was her fault that her mother passed away and she could have helped her. When Alaska says this to Pudge it makes him change his entire perspective on what death is.
“Before I got here, I thought for a long time that the way out of the labyrinth was to pretend that it did not exist, to build a small, self-sufficient world in the back corner of the endless maze and to pretend that I was not lost, but home.” pg. 219
-This passage is important, because this is the last passage in the book, and this passage shows that Pudge has matured and realizes that he never wants to lose his home town memories completely. Pudge began the book wanting to leave his home behind, but throughout the book he found his true self and discovered that his home town is what made him into the person he is today.
