But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel’s story is about to be completely rewritten. ( read more here )
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
** spoiler alert ** My Review:
The Fault in Our Stars is one of the saddest novels that I read. I am not sure how to write a review without spoilers so stop now if you don’t want the story ruined.
Hazel Grace and Augustus are definitely cancer fighters but they don’t see each other as such. As a matter of fact they do not consider themselves strong nor stronger than other people. They fight cancer because they have to fight cancer…not so much for themselves but for the people who love them. They consider that cancer is part of them and they must somehow accept it.
There are so many things that I read in this book that I absolutely loved, that made me think about life and that changed me somehow. You see, this book is not only a cute teenagers love, this book is actually a book about life and about the horrible things that happen to people and about the way people react to these horrible things.
