John Green & book presentation.
Alright, so I have been obsessed with John Green books for a couple of years now. I don’t follow his youtube videos or anything else, because I am a fan of him as a writer. I do love John Green for his personality as well, how he handles interviews, the way he answers questions… but I am mostly interested in his writing.
That being said, I cry with all books he wrote. I bought them all, still have 2 more to read, but every book is so damn special.
Since I am back in school for another year, we have to do all kinds of stuff. One thing is a book presentation. Since Looking For Alaska and The Fault In Our Stars are my favourite ones, just like Perks Of Being A Wallflower, I wanted to choose one of them. I am probably a stupid person for not choosing TFIOS, but since there is this hype and probably everyone watched the movie, it makes no sense to review the book to the class. Which is a shame, because I love it. I haven’t even watched the movie yet. But after reading Alaska for the 3rd time now, my choice was right. Alaska is an amazing book, packed with quotes that mean so much, a story that is, even though it’s fictional, so real.
I have about 2 months to prepare this presentation, and I want it to be perfect, I am planning it now, doing some brainstorming.
So if anyone here has an idea what I can use to make this presentation perfect, let me know! It’s not about getting an A (I’m doing good in school, so it’s no big deal- sorry if this sounds arrogant!)- it’s about showing them how special John Green is, how special his books are.
I wanted to print out or draw symbols that deal with a topic in the book, I wanted to write or print out quotes and put them up all around the classroom. I am going to analyse the characters, their behaviour… I just cannot spoil anything, which is hard, because everything in that book IS about that huge, tragical event and how it never gets solved, really.
In case anyone ever presented that book, has ideas or whatever, please let me know, I’d appreciate it.
EDIT: The bad thing is, that this is for German class. So I have to buy the German copy now and read that again. I am kinda scared that book will lose my interested, because I know the German version won’t be as good as Green’s original writing. GOSH DAMNIT LET ME OBSESS WITH MY ENGLISH BOOKS, GERMAN CLASS!
