I'd heard from multiple people that Looking for Alaska was about literally searching for someone. Not knowing anything about this book, I thought it was Alaska that was going to be found. However, in the beginning Miles (a.k.a Pudge) is in search of his greater purpose. Not until later in the book did I realize that Miles was actually searching for himself and happened to just stumble across Alaska and fall in love. Most of this book, to me, was about Miles finding meaning in his life, and Alaska became a part of it in ways previously unimaginable to him.
