Looking for Alaska, John Green

Since I've gotten into the world of Young Adult literature this year I have heard about this book everywhere. It has won tons of awards and been on all the lists so I wanted to read it. It is a really well written book. The characters are interesting and (mostly) seem real. The plot is intriguing. All good things but I just didn't like this book that much. Several reviews compare Looking for Alaska to A Separate Piece which I read in high school and also really didn't like. I think A Separate Piece is another well written book and I completely understand why other people enjoy it- I just don't feel that way. I'm still planning to read another John Green book but my copy of Looking for Alaska is on its way to the Paperback Swap.
