The Fault in Our Stars by John Green is one of the best books I have read in a long time. I cannot believe I did not hear about this book when it first released! I guess two years later is not so bad. 🙂 I first heard of this book through fellow book lovers on the internet. Little did I know the movie will be available soon for the whole world to view. The book is geared towards young adult readers, but anyone can enjoy it. It is a beautiful love story between two teens who are going through the cycles of having cancer. There is a lot of humor and of course sad moments throughout the book, but anyone who reads this book would enjoy it. I wish I could say more but I don’t want to spoil the book for those who want to read it.
A movie has been in the works for a while and it opened in theaters across America on June 6th. As soon as I see the movie, I will right a review about it and somehow tie it into the book. I wish they tried to keep the movie as true to the book as possible and I hop I won’t be disappointed. I strongly recommend reading the book before the seeing the movie (if you’re interested in the seeing the movies) because movies that are based on novels have been known to leave a lot of things out that made the book an interesting read.
Overall, it is a lovely book and I think I will read it again… I’ll definitely read it again. I actually download the book from iBooks thinking it was another hyped YA novel, but it was not! It lived up to the hype. If you are a huge fan of this book, there is a collector’s edition I came across in Barnes and Noble last weekend, so go pick it up if you like silver dust jackets. ..it almost looks platinum. …eye catching. Go see the movie! (If you’ve read the book, of course).
