The Fault In Our Stars Book Review

About The Fault In Our Stars

One of the #1 New York Times Best Sellers, The Fault In Our Stars, written by John Green, was an outstanding book. This story is about 16 year old Hazel; she is fighting lung cancer and attends a support group. She is not afraid of death because she understands that’s what life is. She soon meets someone who changes her life – Augustus Waters. This book is an emotional rollercoaster, filled with plot twists, but it’s not a cliché book. Romance sparks while truths and wishes arise. There is also a movie which beautifully captures Green’s tale.

My Opinion 

The book and movie both brought tears to my eyes. If  I had to reread a book, it would be this one. I loved the way this story was written; the movie does capture a lot of what happens in the book, but the book is always better. I would recommend to read the book so you know more background information and you can see what was missing in the movie. The plot twist is a major surprise. It wasn’t a predictable teen romance book – it was way more then that. Her parents support her in everything she does, which makes the story much more heartwarming. The book isn’t long (only 313 pages), and you get sucked into the book so easily that you don’t even realize its length. The way the author uses his words is amazing; you understand every point of the book. There are no unnecessary metaphors that you have to pick apart just to understand what is happening. The stories flow well and everything goes together perfectly. There’s only so much I can say about this book without spoiling, but 10/10 recommend to read and watch the movie.
