Blurb:
Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel’s story is about to be completely rewritten.

Insightful, bold, irreverent, and raw, The Fault in Our Stars is award-winning author John Green’s most ambitious and heartbreaking work yet, brilliantly exploring the funny, thrilling, and tragic business of being alive and in love.

My Review:
This book is total genius, I absolutely loved it and I have read it four times at the last count. I adore John Green’s writing, he is so witty and eloquent and there are so many quotes that stand out for me. I personally really liked the dialogue between Hazel Grace and Gus and it was so easy to get invested in these characters. I’ll happily admit that I spent parts of this book laughing out loud and others sobbing into my pillow (always the sign of a brilliant book in my view). I have seen some criticism which has stated the dialogue is unbelievable for kids of their age and I couldn’t disagree more. While I appreciate that not every teenager would converse like that, I think to assume that some aren’t capable of articulating in such a fashion is insulting to the intelligence of teenagers. I found it very refreshing. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this book.

  1. Great review! I know lots of people love this book, but I don’t think this will be a book for me. I don’t deal well reading about illnesses, they make me feel queasy. My sister has read this book and loved it, so I asked her to spoil the ending for me as I was curious what happened at the end. Although I think it’s great that a book about this subject still manages to be fun and light at times as well.

    1. I know what you mean Lola and it’s not the usual type of book I’d pick up for that reason. However, I was curious to see if the hype was justified (and it was in my opinion.) There are a lot of funny moments and romantic moments that lifted it for me.
