about

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.

 

Insightful, bold, irreverent, and raw, The Fault in Our Stars is award-winning-author John Green’s most ambitious and heartbreaking work yet, brilliantly exploring the funny, thrilling, and tragic business of being alive and in love.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Okay 3.5/5 I do feel that this novel is a little overrated, though I can understand why people like it. Pretentious at times, and not quite the 'saddest book ever', TFIOS remains a quick read that provides real emotional impact and deals with some heavy topics. If you tend to read and enjoy a lot of YA, you'll probably like this one.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Overrated This book is a very exaggerated and unrealistic love-story that is completely exhausted. This type of storyline is a lure-an-hook for (not to generalize) teen age girls, and media friendly clichés that everyone falls in love with. The film only perpetuates this phenomenon. There isn't really any substance to the book or the writing style. John Green's writing is mediocre; it gets the message across in a simple, uncreative way. The only surprising elements that make it the slightest bit unique is the fact that both of them are ill with cancer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from a little overrated, but good nonetheless john green does a great job combining humour with tragedy, there's a very good blend and balance between the two. although there are some very unrealistic teenager-y lines and scenes in this story that seem far too cliche, it's still a good book to read if you want to feel the whole spectrum of emotions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is one of my Favourite books!!!!!! I flew through this book, and I finished in a day. It was an amazing compelling read that really made you think about your life. It was one of the first books I have ever read to make me really cry. It's sad but totally worth it. I love John Green's writing style. I read Paper Towns first and I loved it. I then read this book, and I was not disappointed. He is a great author and this book proves it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It is worthwhile and definitely worth a read! There is such a deep meaning behind this novel. I could not stop reading it, and even though it is pretty lengthy, it passes by so fast because you never want to stop reading. This book leaves you always wanting to find out what happens next. There is a plot twist in this story that definitely takes you by surprise and changes your take and outlook on the entire story as a whole. It is worthwhile and definitely worth a read!

Date published: 2017-08-30
Rated 4 out of 5 by from it's really that good there are people who complain that this isn't realistic, it's a book get over yourself, you have to suspend your disbelief. Though there are times you have to ignore the fact that not all of it would happen in real life, there is something beautiful, and real in the emotions John Green paints. He writes a love story that doesn't feel cheesy and when it is, it's meant to be. I didn't want to read it after all the hype it received, but then I did, and I loved it as much as everyone thought I would.
Date published: 2017-08-30
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worth a re-read Even after all these years I still enjoy The Fault in Our Stars.its the kind of book you read when you want to have a good cry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from For sure the best book I have ever read I am not the kind of person (or at least I thought) who would cry reading a book but you can't not cry. Very touching, sad but in a good way. John Green is an amazing author and this book is just heart-warming. It was so well written that I felt for the other characters like I knew them in real life. 100/5 rating.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ok where do i begin... Ok so this book is about cancer. Cancer books are extremely sad, scary and difficult to read as many people find them uncomfortable and scary! However, when you mix romance with cancer, you know it's gonna be a tragedy. This book reminded me of Romeo and Juliet, not only because it was about love and romance, but because it was so so sad! John Green, as we all know, is a talented, and brilliant, smart writer who is a genius, writes metaphors, and the words in the poem are VERY impactful and fit in so well with the story, it will MIND-BLOW you!! This book is very very popular and tons of people have read it or at least heard of it, and a movie has been made out of it with very popular actors as well like Ansel Elgort and Shaliene Woodley. Despite that, this book was truly original and beautiful from the start, whether or not there are so many people who know it. I think it is very sad, and tragic, as it talks about cancer. It is also very mature, deep, and dark, so I would only recommend this to older teens and adults. However, this is a genious book because it is written so connectively. Despite this, there are scary scenes in the book as well. But, I would recommend it for older people, unless you do not like to read about cancer, because it is SAD, and it is scary.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Read this one! John Green's best so far, in my opinion. Great teenage characters who have a certain spin to their perspective on life. Great dialogue and the star crossed lovers are sufficiently down to earth, yet obviously made for each other.
Date published: 2017-06-22
Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's not his best I would recommend other John Green books over this one, but this one is certainly good. As someone who also has a chronic disease, I read this shortly after I was diagnosed. While the book portrays an illness through a different light than how I view mine, it was interesting for me to read another perspective on chronic illness.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nope I know there was a lot of hype around this book and everyone I knew was talking about it. After looking it up and doing some research on what it was about I determined that it wasn't the kind of book I would want to read. But someone gave it to me as a gift so I eventually did read it and it was kind of a waste of time. I called the ending right from the beginning so reading the book was almost painful at points. It wasn't the book for me but I'm sure others would enjoy it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It was okay I read this book before I knew how popular it was because a friend of mine recommended it to me, so I didn't know anything at all about it before I started reading. To be honest, I just wasn't really impressed with it. I admit that there are some really interesting quotes and ideas, but the story itself just didn't draw me in. I don't think it's a bad book at all, but it's just not something I would actively recommend to people or ever reread. I also just found that I got really annoyed with the main character way too much. I would recommend John Green's other books over this one. #plumreview

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this book Great book. Obviously idealistic/simplistic (it's fiction), but very well written. I wept a lot of tears at the end of this. I was also a bit mad about how Green ended it (I wanted it to be happier). Probably would read it again, but not a classic like Harry Potter. Easy read. Great for a plane ride or something like that. 10/10 would recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Cried and I Don't Cry Easy I read this book because all my friends had (peer pressure is great) and I wanted to see what all the excitement was about. All of them were nice enough to never tell me too much about the book except that the girl had cancer (because that's literally on the first page). I read this book in 16 straight hours because it was that addictive to me. My mother came into my crying on my bed because of the climax of events. The way John Green writes is amazing and it has made me read some of his others works such as "Paper Towns" and "Looking for Alaska", but I believe that this book is one of his bests. This is a refreshing take on the tragedies that come with having cancer and brings it into a new light where it is not all about "woe is me" and actually grounds the events with realistic reactions. I highly recommend this book. I also recommend checking out John Green on YouTube where he does a web series entitled Crash Course. He tackles everything from Ancient History to Psychology in a hilariously entertaining way. Check out this amazing guy through his literature and video work.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I Don't Even Know My teenage self loved this book, and probably still does, but I would only pick it up again because of my sentimentality and nostalgia. If you are a teen needing a romance crave, and fast, be sure to give this book a try. Now, if you're wanting a complex story about finding yourself with major twists and turns on the way, then maybe set your expectations lower. Also, I am not, in any way, trying to discredit or demean John Green and his work, but angst ridden teens with an insta-love crave would surely love this. Talking about my past self (and maybe present self) right now, so.

It was a plot that was something that hadn't been touched upon (Not romance, but the idea of cancer patients and the wonderful world of medicine). Considering that I have read John Green's other work, and all of the ravings it got, I was expecting more. However, it is not as good as his other novels and I would rather recommend his other works to people than this book. I did enjoy the book however, but thought that it wasn't his best work and he has done better on other works like An Abundance of Katherine's or Looking For Alaska.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Heartfelt Good read! I read the book because I really wanted to watch the movie but when I finished I liked it so much I was afraid to watch the film and be disappointed. But the film did not disappoint either! One of the most accurate book-to-film adaptations I've seen. Don't let that stop you from reading the book though! The details are worth the read!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Read it! Read it! Read it! I read this for school. I wouldn't have read it otherwise. It was not on my reading list. I am so glad it was required reading. I liked it so much more than I expected to. The love story is not really about romance but the idea of living. It's about how two different people with cancer choose to live. Gus likes grand gestures. Hazel prefers the little things. Gus wants to leave a mark on the world. Hazel just wants to be known by her loved ones. More than anything, the book flips the script. Instead of hearing from everyone else about how cancer has affected them, we hear from the kids with cancer. It's a very refreshing thing to hear as someone that would have otherwise never known. I recommend this to the readers who, like myself, need a story about more than just romance. This book is about a lot more than just romance.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Boring. Honestly, I only read this book because so many people were reading it - even people who don't normally read at all. When I finally read the book, I was disappointed and didn't understand what everyone was so hyped up about. I never cried, I actually laughed a lot, though not at the sad parts. Overall, the story was pretty stereotypical and not very exciting. Also, the story wasn't relatable at all, I actually don't think it could happen in real life at all.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good book and Important This book is very important. It brought a new perspective to cancer character driven books. Hazel isn't defined by her failing health and she see's to it that everyone who comes along her path knows it. It isn't a typical sad story of young dying love; the characters bring their own baggage and wittiness to the book. A good read!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Overrated and predictable I think it was over-hyped. It was good writing, but just not a fan of the story itself and didn't really get into it. I think because of all the hype, I expected too much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of my favourites... This book is one of my favourite books. I've read it too many times to count. I can pick it up and start it from any point and still love it. It's not a book everyone loves, many find it too simple, but it's a good read and makes you feel for the characters.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Book Is Always Better Than The Movie!! Quirky characters and quick remarks that make you laugh. A story webbed through tragedy, Green's characters bring life and realism - both a humorous and refreshing look at life, love and all that comes in between!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Overrated This book was way too over-hyped. If you need to keep yourself motivated to read a book, you know it's not very good. After reading almost 300 pages and not enjoying it, I felt there is no point to keep pushing the story forward. I have never finished the book nor watched the movie and I'm absolutely fine with that.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Overrated I thought this book was a little predictable. It was also way overrated. The writing itself is good, just wasn't in love with the story or the characters. Great writing, just not a fan. I think I expected more, there was just too much hype for it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved this book! Such a good book. I was so invested in these characters and really cared about them. The story is sweet, sad and uplifting. I enjoyed how there was some legitimate sad parts. I don't enjoy when stories are too cookie cutter perfect, it lacks realism.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favourite novel by Green I found Green's other novels, such as Looking for Alaska and Paper Towns, very boring and pointless. The plot seemed to drag on and on and I felt like there was literally no point to the story. However, TFIOS was the complete opposite. I fell in love with the characters and the style of writing. Overall, it was an amazing read.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Overrated This book is incredibly overrated, as well as predictable. What people seem to love so much about this book is how many quote-worthy lines there are. And, in my opinion, that isn't what makes a good story. Sure - you can pick and choose which lines you want to use for a cute and quirky instagram description, but - hell - you can use the internet to find those lines and save some money.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Bit Over-Psyched This was a good book, don't get me wrong, it's just a little over psyched. People gave it so much praise but once you actually read it it's a little underwhelming. I would still recommend reading it, just be prepared to cry.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Over-Hyped & Not That Great Unfortunately I was expecting so much more from this book and it fell short of my wishes.... I don't think this book deserves all the hype that it receives, but I think I'm going to give it another read to see if I still feel that way after I read it again. I would still recommend it though to people who like YA lit.
