the fault in our stars book review


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.

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 called Augustus waters suddenly appears at cancer kid support group, Hazel’s story is completely rewritten.

I found this book by accident, in a small independent bookstore, or truth be told, I accidentally knocked it down from a shelf – my clumsiness led to something good for once.

I wasn’t a stranger to The fault in our stars before I knocked it down, I had just assumed that it was a children’s book and it couldn’t compare itself to literary masterpieces, which is also true language wise.

The fault in our stars is a very easy to read, yet the story is intriguing and gripping. A book that is impossible to put down. We all know what happens when I find a book I can’t put down, I don’t put it down until its finished with that said I finished it in one night.

The storyline is amazing and Hazel and Augustus are two witty, intelligent and remarkable characters, they are one of those characters that you actually want to be. The couple doesn’t just have to deal with falling in love for the first time,they have to confront cancer, friendship, anger, sorrow and death.

This book is also best read with a package of tissues near by. I always read on public transports and I would not recommend to read this one on your train journeys as you might shred a tear or two, or like me, blubbering my way through this book.
