Soon to Be a Major Motion Picture! TIME Magazine’s #1 Fiction Book of 2012!
“The Fault in Our Stars is a love story, one of the most genuine and moving ones in recent American fiction, but it’s also an existential tragedy of tremendous intelligence and courage and sadness.” —Lev Grossman, TIME Magazine
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.
I knew a little about this book before I started listening to the audio version, but I wasn’t prepared for a death I really didn’t see coming. This is definitely a “box of Kleenex” story and more if you’re like me,(I cry at the drop of a hat).
I loved this book because of the surprise it gave me, because of the chemistry between Hazel and Gus, because of the reality of the storyline and finally because it was written very well and with care. You can tell when an author is invested in his work or just cranking them(books) out for the money.
The movie comes out in a couple of months and I can’t wait.
Gave a box of Kleenex and start reading today.
