Title: The Fault in Our Stars (Goodreads)
Author: John Green (Website)
Published: January 2012
Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. 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.
To make it to my list of ‘omg-best-book-ever-my-life-is-complete’-list the book has to either:
- provoke sobbing/crying/bawling
- have a different and interesting plot
- create the urge to not stop reading and eventually make me spend my day with a book and with only a few food pauses
- have characters with a strong personality and a complicated life
People told me this was a sad book. However, I wasn’t sad until the very last pages. I laughed a few times when I read the book because there is also humor in there. It’s not a light-weight, absolutely not, so it might not be for everyone. But if you love a good story, read it. It’s hard to really explain how I feel about this, mainly because my English lexis isn’t too great but also because this book is perfection and I don’t know what else to say about it.
You should read it. Just do it.
