The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

The Fault in Our StarsThe Fault in Our Stars by John Green

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I just finished reading TFIOS and can't say enough good things about it. It is beautiful and tragic and honest and funny and brilliant. I am not ashamed to say that I cried, and I rarely cry at novels.

I feel like the characters might laugh at me for crying; for feeling so much for fictional characters.

I'm not going to describe the book other than what I knew about it when I first picked it up. It's about 16 year old Hazel, who has cancer. I think that by not knowing anything more about it, it made the book better. I didn't read reviews because I didn't want to know anything until I could read it for myself. I made the right choice.

Yes, Hazel has cancer, but the cancer doesn't define her. She is still a teenager that likes things a teenager likes. It feels so real and honest and I love it.

The Fault in Our Stars is a beautifully heartbreakingly stunning novel. Well done, Mr. Green, well done.
