The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green is, of course, phenomenal. In the world of young adult literature, John Green is kind of like a rock star. His newest offering does not disappoint. I laughed, cried, and finished the whole thing in one sitting. If you're a John Green fan, surely you already know about this book, right? And if you're not a John Green fan, why not?

Hazel Lancaster meets Augustus Waters at a support group for teens with cancer, so that should tell you something about what's going to happen in this book, right there. What follows is an epic star-crossed romance involving a trip to the Netherlands, a meeting with a crotchety, reclusive author, a couple of Venn diagrams, more than a few video gaming sessions, and so much more.

I'd write more about this book, but it's always hard to write coherently about something you really like -- and the experience of reading it is still perhaps too fresh in my mind for forming a well-rounded review. In short: I loved it, and I recommend it. Of course.

(Reviewed from a copy borrowed through my library system.)

  1. I really, really, really want to read this one! I just started Looking For Alaska this week and it's making me remember how much I love his quirky, unique and entirely captivating characters!
