Summary:

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 is award-winning-author John Green’s most ambitious and heartbreaking work yet, brilliantly exploring the funny, thrilling, and tragic business of being alive and in love. Praise for The Fault In Our Stars “A novel of life and death and the people caught in between, The Fault in Our Stars is John Green at his best. You laugh, you cry, and then you come back for more.” — Markus Zusak, bestselling and Printz Honor–winning author of The Book Thief “An electric portrait of young people who learn to live life with one foot in the grave. Filled with staccato bursts of humor and tragedy, The Fault in Our Stars takes a spin on universal themes — Will I be loved? Will I be remembered? Will I leave a mark on this world? — by dramatically raising the stakes for the characters who are asking.” — Jodi Picoult, bestselling author of My Sister’s Keeper and Sing You Home

“John Green writes incredible, honest truths about the secret, weird hearts of human beings. He makes me laugh and gasp at the beauty of a sentence or the twist of a tale. He is one of the best writers alive and I am seething with envy of his talent.”
— E. Lockhart, National Book Award Finalist and Printz Honor–winning author of The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks and The Boyfriend List

    Final hour was to predictable and felt Hollywoody, otherwise the rating I would give is 5 stars

  • Lotte Niks

    I love this novel! Also, I do like the narrator but don't love her, but I think that's just personal preference :)

    I was not a happy camper when this book was selected for our community's book lecture. Having lost 2 cousins to cancer and watching my wife battle it, I did not want to read a book about children with cancer. John Green was amazing. He took a topic that usually upsets me and actually had me smiling and laughing at times. Then, just as I was enjoying the read Green hit me with the reality and horror of the disease. This just showed me how good Green is. In a few pages he was able to get me to really care about the characters he had created. By the time I was finished I was ready to seek out another John Green novel. This was an excellent book, with a great narrator.

    This book is great, far from being perfect but still great. I started wanting to love it because so many other people do, I continued to be annoyed by the characters' speeches, obnoxious dialogs and sometimes exaggerated vocabulary and sense of humor. But somewhere in the middle I fell in love, and I surprised, and I even cried. And all the imperfection of Green's writing didn't bother me anymore. Cancer is a terrible disease, and children with cancer is probably one of the saddest things that exist in this world. We tend to forget that they are still human beings, not only with pain and fear, but with wishes, and aspirations, with sense of humor, even if with a limited future. Green did a huge thing bringing it to so many people and young adults minds. "She was a professional sick person. They'd have nothing to say about me except that I fought heroically, as if the only thing I'd ever done was Have Cancer."

    I think this is a great book. Also, the movie is so inspirational to those other people with cancer that won't give up and keep up with they're normal life. The movie made me cry when I saw it but it is a great book and a great author
