The Fault in Our Stars
I didn't cry. I cry at everything, but this book didn't make me cry. Perhaps because it was predictable and I knew the twist was coming. Nevertheless, this was an entertaining, well written, quick read. Is it simplistic? Yes. It is a YA novel. Is it cheesy? At times. I still enjoyed it. I read a wide range of books, but I’m not a book snob. If I like a book, I will admit to it.
The movie has not debuted yet, and I’m not sure how much of this book will make it in to the film, but I think it is a good idea to read the book first if you can, or afterwards.
I enjoyed the character of Augustus Waters. I felt he was a kid who lived on his own terms and had a unique way of thinking. Hazel was your typical “teenager” young lady who was not overly annoying.
Overall, an enjoyable read.
