BOOK REWIEW: The Fault In Our Stars by John Green

The Fault In Our Stars by John Green

Book Review by Hush Hush Biz Book Reviewer Jamie Campbell

Hazel Grace Lancaster is dying of cancer. Which sucks, especially when you’re a sixteen year old girl. Her forced attendance at her support group finally pays off when she meets fellow cancer sufferer Augustus Waters. And so begins their love story.

Experiencing the ups and down of what it’s like to be a cancer patient, Hazel and Augustus bond over their shared love of a book. Not just any book, to Hazel it was a life changing tome.

But the book left so many questions unanswered. Hazel and Augustus set off on a journey to track down the true ending and find the mysterious writer. What they discover along the way is a deep connection that not even cancer can disease.

The Fault In Our Stars is a sad story, heartbreakingly sad. At times a little pretentious, it is frank, honest, and unflinchingly real. It is easy to fall in love with the characters, not so easy letting them go.

For anyone who wants to read a book that lingers with you long after the final words, The Fault In Our Stars is for you. Just keep the tissues nearby.
