Two years post-miracle, sixteen-year-old Hazel is post-everything else, too; post-high school, post-friends and post-normalcy. And even though she could live for a long time (whatever that means), Hazel lives tethered to an oxygen tank, the tumours tenuously kept at bay with a constant chemical assault.
Enter Augustus Waters. A match made at cancer kid support group, Augustus is gorgeous, in remission, and shockingly to her, interested in Hazel. Being with Augustus is both an unexpected destination and a long-needed journey, pushing Hazel to re-examine how sickness and health, life and death, will define her and the legacy that everyone leaves behind.
My thoughs : That was my first John Green book and I can assure you that it's definitely not my last .. I had heard nothing but good things about TFiOS and I totally understand why after having read it ! First of all John Green's writing is amazing and I felt like the pages were turning all by themselves : at one point I was on page 150 and a few minutes later I was on page 180! This was my first book about cancer and it totally broke my heart for I got so attached to the 2 main characters of this book. Hazel was a wonderful young girl and to me it's impossible not to care for her. Onto Augustus Waters, I'm sure I'm not alone when I say that he was my favourite character of the book and the soul of the novel. To me he embodies both the comedy and the tragedy of TFiOS. That's actually one of the main thing I loved about this book : it had me smiling quite often and on the verge of tears several times .. Sure, this book has its share of tragedy but its also filled with humor and hope. The Fault in Our Stars was perfect from the beginning down to the very end :
5 fully deserved bottled Stars
