a friend and i read this in preparation for seeing the movie and it was a bittersweet treat. sad and sweet, this story engages and provokes questions while firmly rooted in everyday life with which we can all identify. we had a great discussion after reading it and look forward to seeing the movie!

I enjoyed this book, especially the two main characters, Hazel and Augustus. The other characters are relatively two-dimensional, especially all four grief-stricken parents. I was disappointed in the over-the-top characterization of Van Houten and the plot line surrounding him. Despite these f... Read More »

I am grateful I have no firsthand experience with attending the slow death of a young person but I think it would be severely lacking in all the humour and erudite conversations that take place between these children. Having said this I am certain this will be a beloved book for many and I'm than... Read More »

In this book, Hazel and Gus, the protagonists, share a not so typical love story. Hazel has cancer and knows she will one day die so she won't commit to being with Gus. When she finally gives in and explores life with Gus, something awful happens, his cancer comes back.

All my friends told me that this book is incredible. I couldn't wait to read it so I bought it and I was really disappointed. Its sweet. the book is too slow and I don't see anything super amazing in it. it is well written but I didn't really like it.

Sad, but well written.

A patron review from the Adult Summer Game: "So sad. But a novel that's filled with love and hope at the same time."

Review for the fault in our stars- hailey caton

The fault in our stars is a sad cancer story and an excellent love story but it is not any ordinary cancer book. In the Fault in our stars we follow Hazel Grace Lancaster and Augustus waters on an exciting journey of their love. Augustus is in love with hazel but hazel says she is a grenade and doesn’t want to get too close to Augustus. What will happen when Hazel finally falls for Augustus and one of them has bad news?
I thought this was a great book because it tells a really good story that is hard for me to categorize in any type of book genre. The Fault in Our stars maybe a cancer book but it is not an ordinary cancer book its an extraordinary cancer book with a great tale of love and an exciting mini adventure packed in one book and told in about 526 pages.

This is a very good book. A little bit of a twist on a teen love story. Watch out for the sexual references, cursing and the sexual scenes. Otherwise very well written.

  • sgranvil rated this: 5 stars out of 5.

This is a magnificent love story about two teens with cancer.
It is all about how Hazel Grace Lancaster and Augustus Waters spend their time together as they fall in love.
Through ups and downs and terrifying trips to the ER they are hopefuls.
It shows that just because you have cancer, doesn't mean you are a useless game piece on the board of life.
This story will captivate you from beginning to end, as you experience the roller coaster ride that is their lives.
It is a must read for all.

"I am," he said. He was staring at me, and I could see the corners of his eyes crinkling. "I'm in love with you, and I'm not in the business of denying myself the simple pleasure of saying true things. I'm in love with you, and I know that love is just a shout into the void, and that oblivion is inevitable, and that we're all doomed and that there will come a day when all our labor has been returned to dust, and I know the sun will swallow the only earth we'll ever have, and I am in love with you.”
