Still crying

The fault in our stars written by John Green was without a doubt one of the most tragic love stories I have ever read. The comedy in this book was spot on, and the plot twist ending had me crying my eyes out as it was not at all what I expected. This book is definitely one of my favorite teenage love stories, and I loved the comparison between Hazel’s favorite book in the story and the way this book was written, as it gave me insight into how she also feels about her own life.

A love story that will last forever

Iconic to a generation of past young readers, John Green made a love story that will forever stay in those fortunate to have read this piece whilst it was still hot off the press. I never expected to feel so emotionally attached to characters in a book, that I had to put it down so I could wipe away my tears when I finally got to the ending. As some may say this is a cliché, it is one of Green's most realistic and ruthless love stories. This book really made me really appreciate the time I have on this planet, as it felt like a lifetime was shared between Hazel and Augustus, even though it was cut short. It showed that even in the darkest of times, one ray of sunshine can feel like an eternity. A beautiful read.

The Fault in Our Stars, by John Green

This was the first John Green book I had ever read. I really wanted to like it and was convinced it would be amazing and devastating after reading some of the excessively favorable reviews here. I was eager and prepared. I suppose the best way to sum up the experience would be to say that I doubt I'll read another book by this author, and if I do, it will be some time after I've forgotten how absolutely disappointing I found this one to be.

Better than the movie

A really great example of the wave of impactful and emotional teen fiction that's swept the world over the last 15 or so years. John Green and this novel in particular were definitely the frontrunners of this almost subgenre of Y/A fiction. This is emotional, heartfelt, funny and just a perfect step towards maturer fiction, or if you're just looking for something to tug at the heartstrings and make you wish you had an Augustus in your life!

The fault in our stars

Bawled my eyes out at the end. Green made me fall in love with Hazel and Augustus. There are people who suffer from their illness and trying to live a normal life. Even if they try to be normal teenagers they always have something that holds them back.
