“The Fault in Our Stars”

, , Leave a comment

A beautiful, edgy book that should be a must-read for all high school students, “The Fault in Our Stars” by John Green, taps into deep emotions.  This book can be categorized under any genre. It is a splendid mix of humor, romance, adventure, suspense, and tragedy.

The life of Hazel Grace, who has terminal cancer, has always been an endless battle for survival.  The pleasant arrival of Augustus Waters, who survives cancer when doctors amputate his leg, brings Hazel Grace comfort, strength, and most importantly, the joyous experience of falling in love. Readers become hopelessly attached to the book’s unique and enticing characters.

An amazing aspect of the book is how the author, John Green, makes the reader nearly forget that Augustus only has one leg, and Hazel must carry an oxygen tank everywhere she goes with him.

The book knocks readers out of their chairs when an incredibly tragic problem occurs that will ultimately leave tear drops staining the remaining pages of the book.

“The Fault in Our Stars” is considered a masterpiece by the toughest of critics and deserves a place on everyone’s bookshelf.
