The Fault in Our Stars

I finished the Fault in Our Stars and I'm still consumed by the thoughts this novel provokes and the characters. This book is hands down, by far, my absolute favourite book. John Green, I'm your number one fan.

Plot: Hazel Grace has cancer. She has a very realistic/pessimistic about the world and all it beholds for the future. And at a support group with other teenagers with cancer, here comes the beloved Augustus Waters, dreamy made up man who will charm your pants off. They meet, fall in love, and take the reader on a journey of epic proportions that will change the way you think and feel about things, laugh and cry.

While indulging myself in the dessert of literature, I laughed several times and cried on three occassions. Yes, I blubbered like a baby not once or twice, but three times. Mind you, I so not cry easily so this is a brilliant capability of the authour John Green.

And that is exactly how I would describe this book: brilliant, gold weaved onto 313 pages, phenomonal. I've run out of synonoms.

Alas, there are not enough good things to say about this book. The way Mr. Green is able to make you think and value your own life and the time you have left and think about your infinite days and how small that infinite may be. My hat is off to you John Green.
