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.

    Aww… so glad this book was good for you. Sarah loved it too, and the rest of us are dying to read it. Thanks for sharing your thoughts! 🙂

    I SO want to read this book! Oh my goodness, I WANT like you would not believe!! 🙂 I haven’t read all of John Green’s books (although I own all but Stars *cries*) but I have read Alaska. And he’s a truly gifted writer. And this one sounds the most like an ‘Ashley book’.

    SO glad that you loved it. I have yet to see anyone who hasn’t. John Green = brilliance.

  3. This book is definitely challenging me as a reader. I love John’s writing, but I really prefer to read on the lighter side. Right now, I’m stuck at the halfway point, afraid to move forward!
