Review: The Fault In our Stars

REVIEW: THE FAULT IN OUR STARS BY JOHN GREEN

GRADE: 4.5 STARS

COVER POINTS: Out of a 10, I'd say a nine :) It is very iconic now. I'm running to get an Okay? t-shirt!


What I liked: I liked Augustus Waters. Everyone does, really. But I liked him more than Hazel at most times. I think Green caputred how a relationship could be when both of the people have cancer. I thought that the whole concept was sweet. I liked the premise of the book: I had this on my TBR list for quite a while, and when the movie came out I stomped my foot and demanded to buy it. So I did :) 
I liked how well the story flowed, speed was perfect. That oftentimes is an issue for me, because if a story goes too fast, I am left with too many questions. I was left with many questions in this book, but not about the STORY itself. I had questions about death, and even if it sounds weird, books like this can make you ponder death. I love how Augustus Waters said "I think forever is an inocorrect concept." *Swoon*

What I Didn't Like: Some of Hazels thoughts were very disorganized. Might be the medicine, but at times I don't believe she knew what she wanted. First she was in love with him madly, then she said she was a grenade and didn't want to be in a relationship with Augustus, and finally she loves him again. It was hard to see why she DIDN'T want to be with him.

 I wasn't a fan of the ending. STOP READING HERE IF YOU HAVE NOT READ THE BOOK. I WILL ADD A LINK TO A NEW BLOG POST WITH THE REST OF MY REVIEW THERE.






   OKAY? YOU CAN CONTINUE READING IF YOU HAVE READ THE BOOK. 













Look guys,  I know that we all loved Augustus, so it was really bad that he(Highlight to see) died. hIGHLIGHT TO SEE THE STUFFF I'M WRITING, WHEN IT GOES WHITE LIKE THIS. THANKS :)

So we got emotional. But what happened opened up a new side of Hazel that I liked to see. She wasn't totally melting like most teenagers, or teenage girls to be correct. I thought it was sweet how much she leaned on her parents for comfort.

Overall: Read this book! Readitreaditreaditreaditreaditreadit!!!!!!!!!

This book was so amazing-- so many emotions at once, but still a clear plot. Right now it's hard for me to blog because I keep saying stuff and stuff and stuff. This book was just that: Indescribable.

Thanks for reading!Links are at the bottom to Goodreads, John's site, and the blog post for the non-readers.
