Reviews for The Fault In Our Stars
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. by Mingxi Hou
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) by Carlee
Best book I've ever read
This is by far one of my favorite books. It made me laugh, cry and wanting more. You will not regret reading this! by Marthe Rosaasen
There's one word to describe this...
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 Kelly Duncan
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 by Margé
green's main characters hazel grace and augustus waters are lovable all at once, especially 'gus'. having confronted mortality, the two take to the world, and those around them, with rather different outlooks and perspectives, only for these to be challenged when they come into contact with each other. the reading is light, although the verbosity of certain parts may be rather distracting, and the emotions they evoke are very real. almost too real. the book left me tearing uncontrollably at some points (which no book has done before) and has the potential to throw you off balance, and in an emotional flux for the few days after. but if you're prepared for all that, then please please please read this book.
it's just tragically beautiful. by nev
The story is a good read however not my favourite. I didn't feel connected with the main character. by Sara

Couldn't Put It Down
I fell in love with this book! by Helen Van Der
This is a book that I got hooked to instantly. I couldn't put it down no matter how hard I tried. It is a very sad novel, possible tear jerker, but it is very worth it. by Tim Harrington
I read this book recently, and to be honest, it depressed the hell out of me. You have to be in the right frame of mind before embarking on it particularly as it has a nasty little twist half way through which can leave the reader reeling a little. John Green is an excellent writer and captures the mind and experiences of teenagers with cancer. But it should come with a health warning - prepare for a gloomy few days whilst reading! by Lynn Little
