While there are definitely excellent one-liners in this book, I just was not engaged.

I wasn't emotionally involved with Augustus to feel sad for his death and the writing was just meh.

I happened to see a preview of the movie that is based upon this book..I thought it would be better to read the book first. I thought the book was fantastic! I look forward to seeing the movie and reading other books by this amazing author!!!!

A story about a girl dying of cancer was never going to be a fun read- but it was thought provoking and sad - and I will remember it for quite some time.
