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
of all, I didn’t cry. I know many of you did, and I can understand why,
I really can. But, the thing is… this book has a balanced atmosphere.
It’s both sad and full of life. During my reading, I concentrated on the
joyful parts and the humour. Maybe that’s why I didn’t feel crushed by
the ‘cancer’ part.
The number of times I laugh out loud or giggled are uncountable.
course, there were some times when I felt my eyes burn because what
happens in this book is not fair. Then again, is life ALWAYS fair with
any of us? Hint: no.
Hazel is such an honest main character. At
first, I thought it was impossible she had cancer. Sometimes, I even
forgot she had cancer! She accepts it and I began to accept it as well. I
rarely read books with diseases or heavy subjects in fact, so loving
this book wasn’t in my pre-read expectations.
BUT, I DID.
OH, I DID.
Will I re-read this book?
YES, YES AND YES.
not the queen of re-readings, I know a queen of re-reading and it’s
definitely not me. I’m way too excited about new books released or ones
I’m dying to read but haven’t to take the time re-reading books. In
fact, I think I only re-read 12 books in my entire life. And that was
when I was younger and didn’t know about Goodreads, hehe.
I know though that, when I’m going to re-read The Fault in Our Stars,
I’ll appreciate it even more than I did now, and that I’ll fall in love
even harder with Augustus and feel an even greater connection to Hazel.
The originality of this book is beyond amazing. I kept thinking how did John Green
manage to invent all of that? He’s a fantastic author with an
impressive writing style and choice of words. I’m so eager to read his
other novels, in occurrence Looking for Alaska of which I heard only great things and that has a big amount of raving reviews.
kind of family Hazel has is adorable and full of love. I felt so happy
for her to be in such a comfortable and loving one. I rarely saw a
similar family in real life but I’m sure it exists so, yes, this story
was also a believable one. Even, the ‘author’ inside it felt real.
I also enjoyed were the multiple settings and the perfect pacing. The
story is not only happening during a short (or long) period of time
which aloud me to really see every character’s personality and the kind
of relationship they have toward one another.
As a conclusion to this 100 180th review of The Fault in Our Stars on Goodreads,
I recommend you this novel with all my heart. I hope you’ll love it as
much as I did and find it inspiring and beautiful as well.
