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.

Hi Liz!
I have not read this one yet, but will someday. I like John Green.
I always read the book first!
Have you read Looking for Alaska by him - I loved it.

Looking for Alaska is my next Green book. I'm waiting on it from the library.
