Product description

Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. 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. This book comes from the `New York Times` bestselling author of `Looking for Alaska`, `An Abundance of Katherines`, `Paper Towns` and - with David Levithan - Will Grayson, Will Grayson. John Green has over 1.2 million Twitter followers, and almost 700,000 subscribers to Vlogbrothers, the YouTube channel he created with his brother, Hank. `The Fault in Our Stars` will capture a crossover audience in the same vein as Zadie Smith, David Nicholls' `One Day` and `Before I Die` by Jenny Downham. `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`). John Green is an award-winning, `New York Times` bestselling author whose many accolades include the Printz Medal, a Printz Honor, and the Edgar Award. With his brother, Hank, John is one half of the Vlogbrothers (youtube.com/vlogbrothers), one of the most popular online video projects in the world.

i loved it

By Louise Colclough 05 Aug 2014 5

One the most heart-warming yet tragic stories I have ever had the pleasure of reading. I devoured this book finishing it within a day. Amazing is not the word I would to describe this book, I think a more appropriate description would be OUTSTANDING!

This is an amazing love story that makes you beeing in a roller coaster of feelings.

First of all, I am not a Young Adult reader, this books was the first YA novel I ever read. I decided to buy it because every time I scrolled on my Tumblr dashboard, they always were a thousand of pictures of this beautiful blue cover. So, when I started my internship in a bookstore (in february) and saw on the first day, that they had it, I decided to give this book a try and bought it, in English. I didn’t want to read it in my mother tongue, French, because I was a bit afraid of the translation since it’s a YA novel (also I enjoy reading in English and knew that the writing wouldn’t be too hard to understand).
So, I start reading it the same day and really enjoyed it at the first sentences. I didn’t know about John Green before this book (such a shame, I know), his reputation is firmly established, but I discovered him with The Fault in our Stars and find that his writing is very agreeable to read, flowing freely. I get attached to Hazel, the narrator, very fast and I don’t remember being annoyed even one time by reading this book. One night I stayed up late because I REALLY wanted to finish it, I wanted to know what will happen to Hazel and Augustus-the protagonists, so bad... and yes people, I cried….
I now really, really want to read others John Green’s novel and hope I will enjoy them as much as I enjoyed this one!

So yes, I hardly recommend this book (like everyone as well) but don’t forget the tissues.
(Oh, and I didn’t go to see the film at the cinema, I prefer waiting and seeing it on TV.)

This book was utterly stunning.

β€œSometimes, you read a book and it fills you with this weird evangelical zeal, and you become convinced that the shattered world will never be put back together unless and until all living humans read the book.”

I started reading this book one night after a friend had recommended it to me. Let's just say, I later finished the book early the next morning. I was so drawn to the story of Augustus Waters and Hazel Grace that I could not put the book down, even when I had finished and my face was drenched in tears I did not want it to be over.

John Green introduced me to an all encompassing love story in which the trials of life were unable to defeat the hearts of two souls that depended on each other in order to exist beyond their cancer driven lives.

It is a light read and touched on a delicate subject but John did it justice. John Green speaks to the readers with quotes that touch on our everyday lives and encourage us not to be beaten down by life but to walk hand-in-hand with it, be swept into the dance of living and tango the night away.

To sum up, I loved this book, I loved the characters, I loved that it was a romance without being a romance and that this book made me cry more then any other novel I have read.

If you have not read this yet, I recommend you do and I only hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
