With Style and a Little Grace: Book Review: The Fault in Our Stars

Book Review: The Fault in Our Stars




There are books that you read and you know that the writing is subpar but you get sucked in anyways.  The Fault in our Stars is no such book, it is on another level, y'all. This book is just beautiful, everything about it. The words, the way the characters are written and the beauty you see in the sadness of their situation is just captivating. I sobbed several times reading their beautiful and tragic love story. I empathized with them and I just can't say enough it was beautiful, ironic, and sad. One of my favorite books I have read in a long time. There were so many quotes ( I used to be a bit of a quoteaholic, circling, saving, all my favorites in a little book), just beautiful words. 

Hazel Grace and Augustus Waters meet at a cancer support group, she is terminally ill. What happens next, Augustus changes her life. 






My review: A++ WORTH THE HYPE! Buy it and a box of tissues!

  1. To be honest, I was a bit hesitant to order this book considering its genre - Young adult literature..but I just couldn't ignore the "buy" button after I read it was John's best work until now.... I am extremely glad I bought this masterpiece...

    It's difficult to find a book which entertains and preaches you at the same time..(In a non-preachy way..) ...but this one went way beyond my expectations...it made me changed the way I looked at life...It made me realize that life is too short to indulge in its trivialities...It made me laugh and cry at the same time... it made me envy Hazel and Augustus that they knew more about life than I do...

    This is a book meant to be read over and over again...

    This will be my "An Imperial Affliction"...
