REVIEW! The Fault in Our Stars by John Green.

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

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.

MY THOUGHTS:

If I could, I would make this review one word: Augustus Waters.

That would be it. That one name, that one character. It – he – speaks for everything about this story and my feelings for this book.

Please believe me when I say that The Fault in Our Stars is absolutely beautiful and magnificent. Neither my nor anyone’s words or praise could do this book the justice it deserves.

If you love Paper Towns and Looking for Alaska and An Abundance of Katherines and are thinking John Green could never outdo himself, prepare to be blown away.  The Fault in Our Stars is stylistically different than all of his previous novels, in a good way; it’s so funny, truthful, raw, thoughtful, and ultimately John Green.

If you’re familiar with the Vlogbrothers videos, you’ll be happy to see some references to Indiana aspects John has previously mentioned in his own videos. They serve as nice surprises to those aware of their existences.

All in all your heart will swell, break and grow. You may even cry. But it’ll be worth it.

Getting to know John Green: John Green Week!

In case you hadn’t noticed, it’s JOHN GREEN WEEK! Bloggers all over the blogosphere are celebrating the fabulous YA author that is John Green.

Whether you’ve read his books (Paper Towns, Looking for Alaska, An Abundance of Katherines, Will Grayson, Will Grayson, The Fault in Our Stars) or not, I’d be willing to bet you’ve heard of him. Nerdfighteria, anyone?

John and his brother, Hank, are of the Nerdfighter fame. And also their Vlogbrother channel on YouTube.

I honestly cannot say that I’ve come across an author as funny as John Green. If his books don’t win you over (which they should), his personality will. And that’s what this post is about: introducing you to John Green. Or, if you’re already a fan of his work, I’m sharing some of my favorite videos of his.

Enjoy and spread the John Green love!
