Review: The Fault In Our Stars

Series: No
Genre: Young Adult-Contemporary
Author: John Green
Publisher: Dutton Books

Book: Bought 

"Diagnosed with Stage IV thyroid cancer at 12, Hazel was prepared to die until, at 14, a medical miracle shrunk the tumours in her lungs... for now.
Two years post-miracle, sixteen-year-old Hazel is post-everything else, too; post-high school, post-friends and post-normalcy. And even though she could live for a long time (whatever that means), Hazel lives tethered to an oxygen tank, the tumours tenuously kept at bay with a constant chemical assault.
Enter Augustus Waters. A match made at cancer kid support group, Augustus is gorgeous, in remission, and shockingly to her, interested in Hazel. Being with Augustus is both an unexpected destination and a long-needed journey, pushing Hazel to re-examine how sickness and health, life and death, will define her and the legacy that everyone leaves behind."

I read this book while in waiting room for my son therapy sessions. I cried. No, correction, I bawled. The secretary lady looked at me like," What is wrong with that girl!" Umm, whats wrong with me is that I just read the most epic story ever!

When I started this book I expected many things. Death, love, new adventures, but never did I think that this book will take me where it did. It took my heart, star-crossed lovers, and an impending death mixed it all together leaving me in a puddle of my tears. What gets me is how everything is so unexpected. I mean you expected it, but you never think that it will go the way it goes.

The love in the book is so pure. It's a love that is cherished with every moment that they have. They don't waste time or beat around the bush. They take every single minute, slowly, carefully, entwining whatever time they have left.

The ending. Geesh! This is the part that crush me to pieces. The letter at the end is so brutally honest, so loving, so freaking epic, that I sobbed in that waiting chair. I could not, for the life of me, hold in my tears. Mr. John Green, for you to write such an divine, life changing book, it makes me see things differently. That, “What a slut time is. She screws everybody.” True. So freaking true.

Take my word for it and read this book. After reading this book, you will learn to appreciate the time you have, even if its short. The Fault In Our Stars leads the reader to a vulnerability that they do not see coming. The reader falls prey to the amazing writing of John Green, leading them to a story that will single-handedly break you down. Want an epic story that will blow your mind, read The Fault In Our Stars.

I give it 5 BITES!

Happy Reading!


  1. I was so happy that the book didn't end in the middle of a sentence like "An Imperial Affliction" did. It would have been so trite, which is why I think Green didn't do it that way.

  2. Gah! Everything you said I agree with!! I absolutely LOVED this book so much! :)

  3. I absolutely LOVED your review! I bawled through reading it too, it really was epic. Thank you so much for sharing! :)

  4. Great review Savannah! I can honestly say that this book is one of the best books of the year. I as well was crying!

  5. Alright, this is going to be one of my next books. I hear everybody raving about it and it sounds like something I SHOULD have read.
