Time to Talk about Books: The Fault in our Stars by John Green

In 2012 John Green’s novel “The Fault in our Stars” was published. The award-winning book about a girl suffering from cancer soon became a bestseller.

The Plot:

The Fault in our Stars

The Fault in our Stars

Hazel, a young girl suffering from a form of cancer, a meets boy named Augustus at a support group. They fallfor each other (first slowly and then all at once like John Green would say :D). Together they experience some awesome things before it all comes to a tragic end.

The Rating:
If you hear what the book is about you think it’s nothing special. A story like one thousand others. But this book is different. I’m usually not into this kind of story but I only heard positive things about “The Fault in our Stars” so I decided to read it and I was really surprised. The story is written so differently from anything like it. It never gets boring or seems like clichés. The characters are so charming and credible. Although it is a sad story it often makes you laugh. The people in the book don’t constantly drag you down like it is other dramatic books. The story sometimes takes turns you’d never expect but even the ones you saw coming are written in an extremely original way.
I read the book in almost one go and now I can completely understand why people are so fond of “The Fault in our Stars”. It came to my attention through tumblr, there I stumbled upon several quotes from the book. Just a little tip: keep a sheet of paper and a pen near you while reading. You’ll come across many lovely phrases you’ll want to remember.

I just heard the news that soon there’ll be a movie starring Shailene Woodley as Hazel and

as Augustus (and William Dafoe as Peter Van Houten…oh my God that has to be good). I can’t wait to see how it turns out.

“The Fault in our Stars” is an amazing book, definitely worth reading.

The ones of you, who already did, how did you like it? And to the others: go read it and then come back and tell me 😀

8/10
