The fault in our stars | Review


Since the film is due out later this year, I thought I would do a review of "The fault in our stars" by John Green before the film comes out. It normally takes me a few chapters to really love a book but within the first few pages I was hooked. The book is about a girl called Hazel and how she meets a boy called Augustus at her cancer support group. I love this book, not only for the love story that it creates, but I love how John Green has managed to write a book that is focused around cancer which showed me what it must be like to live with it, obviously no one can ever understand what cancer patients go through but I feel the book gives us an insight.

I don't cry a lot but this book had me in tears, you see life through Hazels eyes and it certainly made me appreciate what I have. The other thing about this book that I loved was how Hazel and Augustus bond not only through their illness but over their fascination with a book. The ending was heartbreaking but the journey the characters take is breathtaking. If you haven't read it yet, you should definitely give it a read. My favourite quote would be "My thoughts are stars I cannot fathom into constellations.” 

Bye for now xxx
