The Fault in Our Stars by John Green (2012)
YA Fiction | Contemporary RomanceBlurb:
“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.”
pooled ink Review:
In my opinion the underground consensus that John Green’s previous books were simply okay and are quite similar to one another with the same general plot line repeating itself just dressed in another cover with different settings and names is rather true…but this book was different, this book was real, and this book was quite good. Personally I did not find the ending shocking or at all surprising and my cold heart didn’t cry or tear up but that doesn’t change the fact that this book was good. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and I cannot wait to see the movie! I admit that this book was covered in a thick layer of cyber-dust on my Nook but I’m glad I finally just sat myself down and read it because it was quite lovely. Thanks John! Who knew those two nerdy brothers I subscribe to on YouTube would create something so great? (;
