It took me 3 months to read this book.
At first I didn't understand some things about it; the style, the structure of the "before" and "after, even the synopsis.
Then it got boring and I put it down.
one month later I picked it up and read 5 pages, and put it down again.
2 months later I finished my TBR pile, and picked it up again, reading it by force, so I could finally finish it.
And I got hooked.
I actually already knew what was going to happen, because I read a summary on Wikipedia....
But anyway.. this book was life changing I must say, it changed the way I saw things, life things..
And it really made me ask myself.. What happens after I die?
I do believe in heaven, since I am a devoted catholic, but really, I thought..
and life can change in a fraction of a second..
That's why we need to live it to its fullest, be happy, laugh, smile, have fun, do something that you love, eat, pray and love.

This was my first John Green book, and even though when I was bored at first with the book I said, I don't know why people love his books so much.. and now I realize.. Its because they're true and real. Because they teach you. Because they CHANGE you....

Amazing book, can't wait to get another of his work.
