These “bad characters” went a little too far on a stranger they had believed to be their friend, and soon realized the meaning of “bad.” A.) “It was early June, the air was soft as a hand on your cheek, and it was the third night of summer vacation.” (Boyle 169) B.) “Digby had leaned on the horn, laughing, and instructed me to put my brights on.” (Boyle 169) C.) “Sprawled in the dirt, like a fool, on one knee to comb the stiff hacked grass for the keys, his mind making connections in the most dragged-out way.” Boyle (169-170) TS 3.) Reality hits the main character as he completely hit rock bottom when he has to run into the lake and frantically hide in the muck of the water just to avoid the threat of the real “bad-greasy characters.” A.)
When they both stopped at a red light, Sola grabbed a golf club and got out. When he was about to smash the man’s windshield or do him some damage, he realized that the consequence after he did it: what if he killed a man, he went to jail and he destroyed two families because of that moment. So he went back into his car and drove away. From this incident her suggestion to us is that no one seems immune to the anger epidemic. Women fly off the handle just as often as men and young people may seem more volatile, even senior citizens have erupted into “line rage” and pushed ahead of others simply because they felt they had “waited long enough” in their lives.

Comedies are works of literature that is light and humorous, that most often have a happy conclusion. Throughout Looking for Alaska, the students of Culver Creek Boarding School in Alabama are up to no good more often than not. Pranks are a fun pass-time for these students, and prove to be quite hilarious to the reader as well.

Another essence of comedy in the novel is Laura’s accent, she is a student from Russia who has trouble the vowel sound –i (25).

One Friday night before a Saturday tournament we went to the coaches house for a couple of hours and hung out like a team. On Saturday we won first place in the tournament and took home metals. It is a proven fact that hanging out like a team will help the players play like a
At first, they dread spending time with them; Ronnie is hard to keep under control because he's hyper and says a lot of inappropriate things, and all Augie wants to do is talk about the battle game he plays. Another type of humor used was slapstick. For example, when Danny gets into an argument with the tow truck driver, he gets into his truck and slams on his gas to pull on the tow truck, and ends up crashing into a statue. Later on, Wheeler goes to buy Ronnie some juice, and when he comes back, Ronnie decides to lock his car and drive off, and Wheeler chases the car around. We also see slapstick used when Danny joins Augie for his battle and refuses to bow down to the king, and ends up getting
