I have never loved and hated a book before until I read The Fault in Our Stars.( I loved it because it is a novel that will stay with you, warm your heart, but at the same time I hated it because it broke my heart). Hazel introduces herself as a teenager with terminal cancer. She copes with her life sentence by attending a cancer support group where she meets Augustus Waters. Augustus is a cancer survivor who can’t take his eyes of Hazel. This is where their love story begins. It follows the ups and downs of their love and how through the worst circumstances love will always find a way. The supporting characters are wonderfully written in such a way that you grow to care for them just as much as you do the main characters. Which is a rare quality that John Green wrote beautifully.
Reading this book I experienced the highest highs and cheered with their triumphs and cried with each blow this young couple faced. The realism of this horrible disease that John Green has created on the pages of this book are overwhelming and heartbreaking. This is one book that will stay with you and make you appreciate the life that you have. If you want a heartwarming, tear inducing, life altering book than The Fault with Our Stars is a great book for you. The words of this review don’t even come close to expressing the greatness this novel offers, (though I tried) the best way to experience the depth and emotion is to pick it up for yourself, you won’t be disappointed.
