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.
'Electric . . . Filled with staccato bursts of humor and tragedy'- Jodi Picoult
'A novel of life and death and the people caught in between, The Fault in Our Stars is John Green at his best. You laugh, you cry, and then you come back for more'- Markus Zusak, author of The Book Thief

My take on this book:: CAUTION! THIS REVIEW MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS! READ AT YOUR OWN RISK IF YOU HAVEN’T READ THE BOOK ALREADY!!!!!!!

I just started this book yesterday and I just finished it today an hour ago to be precise. And I still can’t stop crying. This book is sooo good. I mean yeah we are dealing with a book that is basically based on a terminal cancer patient that could literally drop dead at any moment while she was telling us this story but at the same time it also deals with teen love and how anything could happen. This book was a really good book and I didn’t think it would affect me as bad.

See I knew that someone was going to die I mean it just was going to happen. I mean a book about cancer patients….it was just going to happen. I just didn’t think that he was going to kill off someone that Hazel loves!!!! That’s just cruel. It reminded me of A Walk To Remember and how Nicholas Sparks killed off Mandy Moore’s character and left her husband all sad. The sad thing is that at least those two were able to get married but poor Hazel and Gus never did.

Then again at least Hazel and Gus were able to spend the amount of time that they did together and were able to do it happily. Hazel and Gus are two people that should be together forever and forever and forever while having cute little babies. I mean yeah they are both cancer patients but that also means that they should try to live their lives. But then again they did. At least they got to go to AMSTERDAM!! As Hazel and their mom said it in chapter ten of the book.

This book is such filled with great characters. I loved Hazel, Gus, and….-enter drum roll here- ISAAC!! I mean that poor kid has, okay had, cancer in his eyes. Now that is the worst luck ever. He ends up getting dumped before the day he has to get his other eye removed I guess and before he goes forever blind. And now? Now he is trying to get over his ex while helping Hazel with her loss of poor young Gus.

I give this book a five stars even though I want to give it ten but the star scale doesn’t go that high. The reason I give it a five/five, ahem a ten/ten, is because it is such a great book that I can’t help but think that I will want to read over and over like how Hazel likes to read An Imperial Affliction. I will forever be wondering if I will ever find myself my own Augustus Waters. Okay? Okay. I also recommended this book to anyone that wants a good cry. I might be watching the movie that goes with this book so that I can see if the movie is as good as the book since I heard that people liked the movie but I haven’t seen it yet. But yeah GO READ THIS BOOK IF YOU HAVEN’T YET!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This Review was previously posted on my blogspot site which I will be closing soon.
