Book Review: The Fault In Our Stars by John Green

This is probably way overdue but I have finally written my review on The Fault In Our Stars by John Green. BE AWARE: THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS.


Summery: 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.

Review: There is really nothing more I can say except, “I FREAKING LOVED THIS BOOK”. What really makes this story was Hazel and Gus. This is probably my favorite relationship in YA and Gus definitely makes it into my Top Ten Fictional Boyfriends list. My favorite part has to be the witty banter between Gus and Hazel. For me there where so many great moments between Gus and Hazel that I really have a hard time choosing just one but I think, for me, Gus’ pre-funeral has to be in my top five.
One of the things I really liked about the book was how Green was able to write about a serious issue, such as cancer, yet still add humor into the story. I really appreciated how Green doesn’t sugar coat how sick Gus gets towards the end.
I don’t know if it was just me or did the ending seem familiar to anyone else:
Best Feature: Hazel-Grace. I loved Hazel-Grace as the narrator of the book. She brought a lot of humor to the story. The banter between not only her and Gus but her and her parents was great and had me laughing.
Worst Feature: Nothing. Like I said before I freaking loved this book and there was nothing I didn’t like about it. If there was one issue I had about the book is that sometimes the banter between Gus and Hazel often times seemed a little too mature for two sixteen year olds.
Overview: I repeat “I LOVED THIS BOOK”.

*The Fault in Our Stars movie comes out in theatres on June 6th. Two things I know for sure about the TFIOS movie is 1. Shailene + Ansel= adorable and 2. I will most likely be sobbing like a baby throughout the entire film. Until then…*
