The Fault in Our Stars Book Review

My Opinion
In this book, John Green is trying to get across that the world is a cruel place and it gives you nothing but pain and sorrow. I think the author succeeded in trying to get his point across, he was able to make me feel the pain and emotion with the characters. I found the book very engaging because it was raw and insightful. Not many authors would have it in them to write a romance novel between two kids with cancer, which makes this novel even more unique than it already was. I loved how Green could help people understand what it was like to be in Hazel and Gus’s situation.
My Opinion and Verdict
Overall there was only one thing I didn’t care for in the book, the roller coaster ride of emotion. Green made his characters have the time of their lives and then just as quick as it came, he tore it away within no time, leaving the character’s lives in utter turmoil. This came as a shock to me and I didn’t understand why Green did it. After thinking about it though, I’ve come to realize that it was a reference to life and how short it is. When looking at the book in its entirety though, it was definitely a hit in my opinion.
Summary Pt. 2
With a charming smile and an unlit cigarette or two, Augustus invites Hazel to his house for them to get to know each other. At the end of the night, Hazel gives Gus her favorite book, An Imperial Affliction, for him to read. After repeatedly hanging out with each other and discussing Hazel’s book, Augustus contacts the author of An Imperial Affliction, Peter Van Houten, so he can answers a few of their questions.
Summary Pt. 3
Mr. Van Houten replies later and invites both Hazel and Gus to Amsterdam because he could not answer their questions in an email. The rest of the book is Hazel and Augustus’s time in Amsterdam and the struggles they go through afterward.
