Review: The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

Fault in our stars

From Goodreads

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.

My Review

I do not want to watch the film. I think it would spoil the utter perfection that is this book. It is 1.23 am, my eyes are swollen, my skin is blotchy and I am in love with Augustus Waters, Hazel Grace and John Green.

This is the reason I am glad I don’t give five stars to all of my books, I keep them for the really special ones!

Go, read this book. Don’t do what I did and let it sit on your shelf unread because you didn’t trust the hype. The hype is totally undeserved- this book isn’t about two kids with cancer who fall in love. This is a book about two teens who fall in love, find the lack of meaning in their lives, get pretty angry at the universe, get pretty philosophical towards the universe and then break your heart. See? Much, much worse! And far better!


Update: One┬áday later and I still can’t stop thinking about Hazel and Augustus. I have a major book hangover, I can’t read anything else!

  1. This book was probably my favourite read of 2014, you should definitely watch the film! I thought that I would hate it completely but when I saw the film I was in even more tears and my best friend had to nudge me because I was crying too loud. It is worth the watch though!

    1. Does the film have all of the dark humour in it? Because I think that really made the book! I also don’t know if I can cope with another crying headache again so soon! Haha yeah that would be me, it’s definitely going to be a DVD in my room on my own if I do watch it!
