The Fault in Our Stars

by John Green

I haven’t been this overcome after reading a book in a long time.

I feel like I’m caught in this book and I’m tempted to pick it up and reread it after finishing only yesterday.

This book is sad. I went to the bookstore and told the lady I was afraid to read it because I thought it was sad and she said, “It might be. But it is GOOD.”

I think John Green has a window into the human condition. Every book that he has written has astounded me.

Hazel has terminal cancer and meets Augustus Waters at a cancer support meeting. But the journey they go on is so far from a Nicholas Sparks novel. Their journey is real and visceral and gorgeous and tragic and haunting. And so much of life is like that.

I can’t recommend this book enough, as long as you have a box of tissue ready at your side. The words are still running through my head now and I can’t give them up. Read it. Now.
