Book Review: The fault in our stars by John Green

The fault in our stars
Author: John Green
Goodreads AVG Rating: 4.60
Pages: 318
Diagnosed with Stage IV thyroid cancer at 13, Hazel was prepared to die until, at 14, a medical miracle shrunk the tumours in her lungs... for now. 
Two years post-miracle, sixteen-year-old Hazel is post-everything else, too; post-high school, post-friends and post-normalcy. And even though she could live for a long time (whatever that means), Hazel lives tethered to an oxygen tank, the tumours tenuously kept at bay with a constant chemical assault. 
Enter Augustus Waters. A match made at cancer kid support group, Augustus is gorgeous, in remission, and shockingly to her, interested in Hazel. Being with Augustus is both an unexpected destination and a long-needed journey, pushing Hazel to re-examine how sickness and health, life and death, will define her and the legacy that everyone leaves behind.


Dear Mr. Green.

Let me introduce myself as your new and happy reader. I just finished reading your amazing book The fault in our stars, yesterday. And since then, I was trying to be brave to write something for you.
Since one of my best friends told me I have to read this book, I was dying to read it ASAP, but I live in a country with no-good-bookstores no-English-books.  So, I had to wait till I can buy my e-copy. And for the first time in my whole life I got really mad about e-book, cuz if it wasn’t for them, I would have to wait to read the print copy of this book, which could be like HEAVEN!
I don’t want you to get bored with this “letter” I just want to thank you for this amazing-incredible-wonderful-beautiful book.
The fault in our stars had been the best book I have read this year. It made think a lot about my life, about all the shits I’m doing… about dead, about love and about my auto-loneliness.
Just to say. Yesterday, just some minutes after I finished reading the book. I realized two people died in my so-little town. One of them, and old musician I liked a lot. And guess what… I started crying like a baby. But it wasn’t about them! IT WAS BECAUSE OF GUS!!!! And it made me feel like a selfish bitch!

I can’t even describe how mad I was because of the ending of the book. I think I insulted you very bad! (Sorry!)… But then, it hits me!  And I started laughing cuz I realized that I LOVED that ending!!! I started to ask about Hazel, about her parents… Just like Hazel about Anna!
Well, this book really touched me!
I loved every word, every line… I loved those wonderful characters you created. They are an example for those of us who are spending our lives in useless things.
In fact, I will never be able to thank you enough for the chance to read this amazing piece of art.
Thank you very much!
Your little Latin fan
