Fault in Our Stars Review & Giveaway (CLOSED)


"The Fault in Our Stars" by John Green 
Review & Giveaway


I was at first hesitant to read The Fault in Our Stars because I work in a library and didn't want to indulge in the needs of a 14 year old girl. After all my friends got hooked, I put myself on the 18 person long hold list at my work and patiently waited. When it finally came, I completed the book within a 24 hour time period. I didn't think I could love a couple so much as I did Hazel and Augustus. 

While bearably unrealistic, the book is beautiful writing of the tale of two cancer ailed love struck teens. Augustus Waters is a rare species--a remarkable man. His love for life and Hazel is passionate and left me in awe. Many argued that these characters were unrealistic, but have you ever met a teenager with cancer? They live their life to the fullest and are wise beyond their years. They've been forced to mature at an extremely fast rate, and are realistically similar to the characters of Hazel and Augustus, even though they might not find a love as strong. 

Green is a remarkable writer whom I was first exposed to with the book "Looking for Alaska." I recommend people read this as well. I found it more relative to my own life than I did "The Fault In Our Stars," although TFIOS had me more sucked in.
