Book Review: The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

Title: The Fault in Our Stars
Author: John Green
Published: 12th January 2012

Despite the tumour-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.[GoodReads]

My Thoughts:
When you go up you always have to fall back down. For all those emotional book lovers, I recommend reading with several boxes of tissues on the side. BE PREPARED!

Everything changes when Hazel meets Augustus. Both suffering from cancer it goes through a tonne of emotion: laughing happy to then down right sad. It's such a good read that you are likely never to put the book down until you read the last line.

The relationship between Isaac and Augustus was cute and their on-going jokes, nothing but good old friendship. So when Hazel is included it is so perfect because she fits in with them so well.

Augustus is a character who you could look up to. He has such a boldness to him and doesn't let anything put him down. He always lives his life to the max, which is what really drives this book on. The idea of the cigarette in the mouth without lighting it was also something I found interesting, with the whole idea he had with it.

Recommend or Not? Yep...tissues at the ready!

"The real heroes aren’t the people doing things; the real heroes are the people noticing things, paying attention."

Happy Ready :')
