the fault in our stars [book review]

Tuesday, June 3, 2014


This book review is on one of the best books I've read in a long time.  This book touched me so deeply.  I read it on my kindle then had to go out and purchase the physical copy to keep by my bed.  The Fault In Our Stars [tfios] proves that the Young Adult genre isn't just for teenagers.  I urge you to read this book if you haven't already.  I fell in love with this book, and then it broke my heart into pieces.  When I read the last page and closed the book, I sobbed.  Not cried.  Sobbed.  I rarely say that I book "changes my life", but this one indeed changed my life.  It's incredibly profound, and is a wonderful story. 

The Fault In Our Stars
Author: John Green
"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 appeared at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel's story is about to be completely rewritten"  -amazon

I'd call myself a bookworm, a booknerdigan, a lover of all books.  Lately, I've been really enjoying Young Adult books.  This one surprised me and I had to read everything by John Green that I could get my hands on.  He's such a great author.  While we're on that subject, after you read TFIOS, you must read Looking for Alaska.  Phenom.  

TFIOS has created a much deserved fandom base.  Just input "TFIOS" into pinterest, twitter, instagram, tumblr, etc.  You'll find a huge community of "nerdfighters".   While the following is largely young adult, obviously it's not only for teenagers... I'm 31 and I'm head over hills for this story.

Funny story:  My best friend is a nurse is going to school to be a practitioner.  She has a break in between semesters and texted me asking if I've read any good books lately.  I of course recommended TFIOS.  The next day I received a text that said, "Why the F**K did you have me read this book!?" AHah!  Her boyfriend came home that night and thought he was in trouble because she was sobbing.  

Honestly though... please don't wait for the movie.  You MUST read the book first.  You need to experience the story intimately first.  Just you and the characters.  Then you can see the movie =]

Here's some of my favorite images I found on tumblr about the book:

Okay now run to your local book store, or grab your kindle && read this book!  The movie comes out Friday!
