If I was stranded on a desert island and could only read one book for the rest of my days, this would be the one! I absolutely adored it, the characters are so well formed and realistic that by the end of the book I almost felt a genuine bond with them.
As a cancer survivor myself I was touched by the way Green handled the illness in a funny but realistic way that left me in tears. I don't class myself as an oversensitive person but after this book finished I cried like a baby for at least half an hour.
This is one of those rare books that touches your heart and soul. I wish there were 6 stars because finally I have found a book worthy of them.
