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.
I have wanted to read this book for awhile now but always put it off. This is a hard topic for me to read/discuss. There is someone in my life close to me that has cancer. You can imagine the roller coaster of emotions I was on when I was reading this book.
This book is a quick read, you get lost in the book and want to keep reading to find out what happens next. There are parts of the story that don’t seem possible. This book is a work of fiction so not everything will be true to life.
I found myself falling in love with Hazel and Augustus. They are just teenagers but facing something that no one should have to deal with let alone someone that age. I felt they handled things very maturely. I know personally I would not be able to.
Like I said, I have someone close to me battling cancer. There are things in the book that Hazel and/or Augustus say or do that he has done, or I can see him doing.
This book left me crying and emotional. I can’t wait to see the movie now.
