By Mingxi Hou 08 Jul 2014 2

I've never thought of this as a bad book; in fact I quite enjoyed reading it. However like several others, I believe that it does not deserve the acclaim that has been lavished upon it.

The first person voice of the novel was its downfall. John Green tried much too hard to write a main character that is eloquent, but is still relatable to the target audience. The result was an inconsistent and hard to believe character that oscillated wildly between a 'typical teen', and someone with the emotional insight on life that is incongruous to both her age, and the character the author was clearly trying to create.

Story-wise, I found this novel to be average. Despite having some touching moments, the plot overall is contrived and lacked the more detailed nuances of human emotion that really brings a novel like this to life. I wouldn't recommend against this book, but I wouldn't recommend it either.

To be completely honest i thought this book was highly overrated. Dont get me wrong, I did enjoy it, i just dont think it deserves all the acclaim it's received.

I was expecting to be amazed, but my overall impression was that it tried too hard to be eloquent and moving and it really didn't offer anything new or different to the other books of this genre that i've read (particularly if you've read other books by John Green)

This is by far one of my favorite books. It made me laugh, cry and wanting more. You will not regret reading this!

EMOTIONAL.

Honestly one of the best books I have ever read, couldn't read another book for about a month after I had finished because I was still thinking about this one!

By Margé 20 Sep 2013 5

I can just summarize this book by the saying:

"That moment when you finish a book, look around, and realize that everyone is just carrying on with their lives... as though you didn't just experience emotional trauma at the hands of a paperback." by Anonymous

Review quote

CRITICAL ACCLAIM FOR THE FAULT IN OUR STARS:   “Damn near genius . . . The Fault in Our Stars is a love story, one of the most genuine and moving ones in recent American fiction, but it’s also an existential tragedy of tremendous intelligence and courage and sadness.” —Lev Grossman, TIME Magazine   “This is a book that breaks your heart—not by wearing it down, but by making it bigger until it bursts.” —The Atlantic   “A story about two incandescent kids who will live a long time in the minds of the readers who come to know them.” —People   “Remarkable . . . A pitch-perfect, elegiac comedy.” —USA Today   “A smarter, edgier Love Story for the Net Generation.” —Family Circle   “Because we all need to feel first love again. . . . Sixteen-year-old Hazel faces terminal cancer with humor and pluck. But it isn’t until she meets Augustus in a support group that she understands how to love or live fully.” —Oprah.com, a Best Book selection and one of “5 Books Every Woman Needs to Read Before Her Next Birthday”   “[Green’s] voice is so compulsively readable that it defies categorization. You will be thankful for the little infinity you spend inside this book.” —NPR.org   “Hilarious and heartbreaking . . . reminds you that sometimes when life feels like it’s ending, it’s actually just beginning.” —Parenting magazine   “John Green deftly mixes the profound and the quotidian in this tough, touching valentine to the human spirit.” —The Washington Post   “[Green] shows us true love—two teenagers helping and accepting each other through the most humiliating physical and emotional ordeals—and it is far more romantic than any sunset on the beach.” —New York Times Book Review   “In its every aspect, this novel is a triumph.” —Booklist, starred review     “You know, even as you begin the tale of their young romance, that the end will be 100 kinds of awful, not so much a vale as a brutal canyon of tears. . . . Green’s story of lovers who aren’t so much star-crossed as star-cursed leans on literature’s most durable assets: finely wrought language, beautifully drawn characters and a distinctive voice.” —Frank Bruni, The New York Times   “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, bestselling and Printz Honor–winning author of The Book Thief   “The Fault in Our Stars takes a spin on universal themes—Will I be loved? Will I be remembered? Will I leave a mark on this world?—by dramatically raising the stakes for the characters who are asking.” —Jodi Picoult, bestselling author of My Sister’s Keeper and Sing You Home   “John Green is one of the best writers alive.” —E. Lockhart, National Book Award Finalist and Printz Honor–winning author of The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks and We Were Liars
