Reading is my second nature.I read whatever strikes me, regardless of genre These are my honest, uncensored opinions based on the quality of the book,not the authour.
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
Read from September 28 to October 14, 2013
5 of 5 stars
Synopsis: The Fault in Our Stars is the story of Hazel Grace,a 17 year old who was diagnosed with thyroid cancer at 12, and has come to terms with her diagnosis. She is ready to die. A miracle trial pill has stalled her inevitable death, but for how long? Hazel joins a Cancer Support Group, where she meets Augustus, who is in remission after having lost his leg to osteosarcoma fourteen months prior. Even though Hazel makes it her policy not to get too close to people for fear of hurting them when she dies, she can't help but to start falling for Augustus.
I fell in love with this book almost instantly.
Gus & Hazel don’t have the typical “fall in love” story that everyone seems to have, they simply just fell into each other.Their story is about finding that in a bleak world there can be light, and that light may not shine forever, but it can shine beautifully & bright while it’s here.
When I finished the book I wanted to cry, but more importantly I walked away feeling that the authour hit the heart of the story. That, much like death, life and love are not something you can control. And that hurt is not something you can avoid, but that you will be okay.
"Maybe okay will be our always"
I really liked when Gus said this. It doesn't seem deep, but I think it really speaks to the simple, easy going nature of their relationship.
Bookish people are happiest in their natural habitats!
