it was amazing
Read in February, 2012

I rarely say that you “have to” read a book since tastes and genres run the whole gamut, but I’m saying that you “have to” read this book. This book left me quaking with sadness, even though there are moments of lightness. In the ten days it took me to read this novel, I couldn’t wait to get stuff out of the way so that I could curl up with THE FAULT IN OUR STARS in the evening. I delved into a world of cancer, frailty, strength, humor, the meaning of life, and the legacy people leave behind when they pass on. With other books I find the focus may be on a few things or a singular theme, but this book seems to encompass so much more. It’s as if John Green held up his arms to life itself to encapsulate its pith and put it in this book with two characters, Augustus and Hazel, who will capture your heart and won’t let go.
