The Fault In Our Stars – John Green

The Fault In Our Stars CoverOn The Cover: 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 re-written.

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.

Why I Chose It: I’ve been watching a lot of the Vlogbrother’s videos lately, and after feeling guilty for never having read a John Green novel, I decided to plunge head first into the newest one!

The Review:

This book is really hard for me to review. I felt so many emotions while I was reading it, which I suppose tells you right there how much it effected me and how good a book it was. Within the first page I was already laughing. Hazel is an adorable character, and I loved everything about her. She was spunky and fun, and I loved her sarcastic dialogue about everything happening around her. Her interactions with other characters are absolutely delightful, and I don’t think I have ever laughed literally out loud so much at a book before.

At the same time, the book is about a cancer patient, so inevitably there are going to be sad parts to the book. First, I need to tell you something about myself. I have cried over exactly one book, and that is Bridge To Terabithia by Katherine Paterson. For some reason, I cannot get through the ending of that book without sobbing, but I have always loved that book for that specific reason. But The Fault In Our Stars made me cry multiple times. I was hopeless when I was about halfway through the book, and I didn’t know how I was going to finish the book, only that I had to. There were multiple parts that I was laughing and crying at the same time because of how honestly human this book was.

Girl reading The Fault In Our StarsI really don’t know what else I can say about the book to make you understand how good it was. I suppose all I can say is that The Fault In Our Stars is unforgettable, and I sincerely recommend reading it.

  1. I know what you mean about how hard it is to describe your feelings about this book! It was just so good and moving! I was super surprised by how often I found myself laughing and crying!

    • Haha yeah! When I was trying to write it i just kept thinking, “well, it’s GOOD” and didn’t have words beyond that :P I would honestly be shocked if someone read this and didn’t get teary-eyed!
