The Fault in our stars by John Green

“Sometimes, you read a book and it fills you with this weird evangelical zeal, and you become convinced that the shattered world will never be put back together unless and until all living humans read the book.”

Hazel Grace, a teenage girl who has been escaping her death because of the medical miracle treatment she has been under. She doesn’t want to do anything much with the world until there is human bomb dropped in her life. Augustus Waters, who appears at the Cancer Kid Support Group and has his eyes on Hazel. Hazel’s life is going to get flipped upside down.

I must say this was a beautiful book. I wouldn’t say there was any twist because the author always gave a heads up. He is talking about a girl who has bought herself more years in life through medications and meets a guy so pretty much people could have foreseen either death or happily ever after. The author never really made it a suspense or anything but he made it absolutely beautiful. 

He portrayed that a disease isn’t going to stop anyone from falling in love or neither from being themselves. When you meet the right person and you feel comfortable around them you start looking at things in a different perspective. He showed this through Hazel. She didn’t want to do anything much until Augustus came and flipped her world upside down. She experienced a lot of things before her death called on her and she enjoyed all the time being with him. 

Another thing I totally loved about this book was the quotes. They totally conveyed the feeling and absolutely touched my heart. The quotes were catchy. OH! And reading this wasn't sad but funny. We are reading about people who are having diseases but it was just like any other book but them being much more special than us. I liked how the author didn't make us pity the characters or them pitying each other. 

Also loved the dialogues exchanged between the characters. Hehehehe. Especially Hazel and Augustus. They were both made for each other. Sweet and Sarcastic. Perfect couple. At times, it got a bit sad because never wanted this to end this way but have to accept what is coming and that’s life. Their relationship was totally something I totally admired. (OMGGGOSHH…talking about fiction here. Hahahaha. )

5 stars book! What can we ask more from this book? It was beautiful, deep, heartwarming J Actually, it sort of makes you appreciate what you got and tells you not to waste your time since it’s precious.

Cheers J
