Review for The Fault in Our Stars By John Green

The Fault in Our Stars
By John Green
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 brilliantly explores the funny, thrilling, and tragic business of being alive and in love.
My 5 Star Review
Hazel Lancaster is an extraordinary young woman. She is only 16 years old but one would think she is 30 trapped in a teenager’s body. I have read a lot of books but out of all of them I have to say that this character really broke through to my heart. I envy her strength and courage. Augustus Waters is a funny, loveable, strong 17 years old. I love his metaphors too. I am sure that teenage girls would line up around that block just to see this guy. Hazel and Gus both have cancer and they meet in a Support Group. Hazel and Augustus defy the conventional teenager model.

Well I have to say that I would of never picked this book up and read if, if it wasn’t for the ladies of Between the Covers book club. I never get to attend the once a month meetings due to my work hours. So I told myself that I will read their next pick. I texted my best friend Christine and told her that I was 9% into the book. I told her that I am not sure if I can finish reading this story. Then at 64% into the book I told her that I have already cried and this hits way to close to home and then texted her back with Hold me!!!!! She responded with I am shocked you are still reading it.
This book is a very emotional book. I am sure everyone can relate to this story one way or another. I personally think that is book is one of the best books that I have ever read and I have read a lot of books. This book heart-warming, funny, sad and a realistic read. There isn’t one negative thing to say about this book. I loved every word and I enjoyed the funny parts and stuck through the sad parts. John Green you did a freaking amazing job creating this story and I am so glad that I got a chance to read this book. This book is life changing and that is all I can say….
You don’t get to choose if you get hurt in this world, old man, but you do have some say in who hurts you.
The Fault in our Stars
Once I finished this book I went to and read some of the things that other readers have said about The Faults of our Stars. I was crying like a baby reading all of the beautiful things that people were saying and how this man this author touched and affected these people’s heart and soul. It is pretty freaking amazing.
