Title: The Fault in Our Stars
Author: John Green
Publisher: Dutton Books
Published Date: January 10, 2012
“Remarkable . . . A pitch-perfect, elegiac comedy.”
“[Green’s] voice is so compulsively readable that it defies categorization. You will be thankful for the little infinity you spend inside this book.”
“[Green] shows us true love—two teenagers helping and accepting each other through the most humiliating physical and emotional ordeals—and it is far more romantic than any sunset on the beach.”
—New York Times Book Review
Where do I start? Let me being with a small summary. Hazel Grace has cancer. She has had it since she was 13. She has to have a breathing machine because…well…her lungs suck. She is made to go to Support Group for kids with Cancer. She hates it. Little does she know that Support Group is where she finds her first love, Augustus Waters.
I’m going to stop there with my summary. I don’t want to give anything away. It was so good! I just have to say that I am very glad to be an healthy adult, because there are so many children out there that never get to be or see my age.
The characters in the book are amazing. I want to grow up to have that kind of attitude! Too bad I’ve already grown up and all I got was sarcasm.
One thing I will say is that…I cried…a lot. I don’t usually cry over books. I’m just not that sentimental. But dang, I cried a really good cry. It’s definitely the reason why I haven’t read it before now. I knew it would be sad. And I probably will never read it again. I just don’t like books that make me cry. BUT I’m very glad that I have read it. It is definitely a must read at least once in your life.
Life just isn’t fair for some people. I do appreciate my own mortality more.
Here’s the trailer for the movie coming out soon! I can’t wait. I know I’ll probably cry at that, too. But oh well.
