The Fault in Our Stars – John Green

January 5, 2013

200px-The_Fault_in_Our_StarsI only have one word for this book. Perfection. It’s so good. Seriously. If you haven’t read it, drop what you’re doing, run out and buy it, and read it immediately.

The Fault in Our Stars is John Green’s fourth solo book and, arguably, his best. This book is filled with heart and soul. It follows Hazel Grace, a 16-year-old girl with stage 4 thyroid cancer. Hazel is battling depression and her mother makes her go to a cancer support group, where she meets Augustus Waters, who is in remission from osteosarcoma.

Hazel and Gus bond over their share love of a book called An Imperial Affliction. The two go on a quest to find out what happened to the characters that leads them to Amsterdam and a meeting with the book’s author. Also in Amsterdam, Gus reveals a secret of his own, that his cancer has returned.

I was so unsure if I would be able to handle reading this book. I knew from the get go that it would reduce me to a puddle of mush. And it did. But it was so worth it.
