But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel's story is about to be completely rewritten.
Insightful, bold, irreverent, and raw, The Fault in Our Stars is award-winning-author John Greenâ€™s most ambitious and heartbreaking work yet, brilliantly exploring the funny, thrilling, and tragic business of being alive and in love.
Reviews I'm not usually one for young adult fiction. Even when I was a younger adult and teenager, I prefered more sterotypically "adult" books, romances, horror, and fantasy (which I suppose can be argued is for any age, really. But it's not generally about teenagers and their school problems, like YA books are). But a friend of mine introduced me to John (and his brother Hank) Green's fabulous YouTube vlogs, and after a year of watching them, I decided to pre-order The Fault in Our Stars (admittedly, it was partially because I was truly impressed that he SIGNED ALL 150,000 copies of the first printing! Talk about dedication!) I foolishly had the book shipped to my school address while I was still away for winter break, so I instead read Looking for Alaska and Paper Towns. By the time I got my copy of TFiOS, I was addicted to John Green's writing. TFiOS is beautifully written. It's funny, it's quirky, and it makes you cry. It's definitely different from his previous books; for one thing, it has a female narrator, and for another, it's darker, deeper, and far more impactful. it's not his first book dealing with death, but it's the first time I've gotten so attached to the characters that, even knowing from the begining that this book probably wouldn't have the happiest of endings, I was truly sad when one of the character's dies. I had really started to feel like I KNEW these characters. I still don't think that YA fiction is my favorite genre, but I will happily continue to read anything John Green writes. I just love his style, his humor, and his way of creating characters that really feel like people I could know. TFiOS is a true masterpiece. (I also want to add that this book has made me completely fall in love with the name Augustus. It doesn't have to do with the character, it's just such a great name! I have no idea why John Green chose it, but it is absolutely perfect, and SO gorgeous...)
The Fault in our Stars is heart-wrenching, romantic in the most worldly and genuine interpretation of the word, indelibly thought-provoking, exceedingly symbolic, and spectacularly funny. John Green has done it again. He has recreated with merely imagination, influence, and ink the completely characteristic and honest mind of a teenager, while acing a new challenge: the mind of a teenage girl. I reiterate, John Green has done it again, and this time he has done it even better.
Simultaneously clever, tragic, and hysterical, with equal doses of realism, hope, and heartache, The Fault in our Stars is an striking and valuable truth. Hazel's narrative seems to put into words the indescribable bits of us that come along seemingly at this one time in a life, while doing complete justice to the kinds of emotions that none but the terminally diagnosed fully comprehend. Most importantly, John Green never undervalues the intelligence of his readers, and he presents a broken that somehow remains whole world to a young adult audience in yet another raw and real novel. To me, this is what sets John apart. As a 16 year-old girl, I'd like to give you a suggestion. If you're thinking about purchasing this novel, I recommend you do so as soon as is humanly possible.
I would not consider this a book review, as you have at least a hundred others to convince you to read it, however, I would like you to consider something. You will see in reviews here and there people mention the language used by teenagers in this book. In fact, after spending a sleepless night reading this book cover to cover, I came away thinking "Kids just don't talk that" myself. But then I took a walk at four in the morning in the brisk cold to consider what I'd just read and this is what changed my original opinion. John Green has often stated that we, as humans, do not imagine others complexly. This book is John Green's hopeful novel of two teenagers that ARE able to imagine others (and their lives) in a more complex manner than what we believe young people are capable of. John, quite simply, believes that young people are more than just surly, angry, underage hormones that walk and talk. He knows that, given the chance, young people are quite capable. They are artistic, capable of critical thinking, compassionate, intelligent and so much more. This is the story of two such teenagers.
