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!

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!

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
