Fault in our Stars
The Fault in our Stars is the first of John Green's books to be turned into a film but the book is a must read before you see the movie. The characters are captivating and relatable as they take the reader through a coming-of-age story to remember. It's an easy read and is appropriate for anyone who enjoys a different take on the teenage love story about life rather than death. It will make you laugh, it will make you cry and it will make you wish the story never ended. Reviewed by 01zt.

The Fault in Our Stars
The Fault in Our Stars is an incredibly powerful and thoughtful novel following the conceptual trace of life, loss and the legacy of death. Crafting an eloquent story if not with a touch of poignancy, Green deftly touches on the delicate issue of cancer while still communicating messages of hope, perseverance and life not being about how many breaths you take, but the moments that take your breath away. While the novel often felt pretentious, it is overshadowed by the interesting dynamic of the protagonists pragmatism to the love interests idealism. Swamped with tears and heartbreak, the story never fails to baffle readers with beautiful writing and deep undercurrents of meaning. The emotional intimacy of the novel leaves you questioning everything about life the purpose, the point and the proceeding. Green has yet again stunned the literary community with this tragically reflective story and it is truly a worthy achievement by itself. By Xsarea Power

The Fault In Our Stars
I started this book skeptically because I was very disappointed by Looking for Alaska so my expectations were pretty low. But I LOVED IT. I loved Hazel Grace, she was intelligent and quirky and real. Don't get me wrong, it was super sad and tragic and broke my heart a little bit. But it also made me laugh. This book kept me reading into the night because I couldn't put it down.
