Summary

The beloved, #1 global bestseller by John Green, author of The Anthropocene Reviewed and Turtles All the Way Down

“John Green is one of the best writers alive.”—E. Lockhart, #1 bestselling author of We Were Liars

“The greatest romance story of this decade.″—Entertainment Weekly

#1 New York Times Bestseller • #1 Wall Street Journal Bestseller • #1 USA Today Bestseller • #1 International Bestseller

Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel’s story is about to be completely rewritten.

From John Green, #1 bestselling author of The Anthropocene Reviewed and Turtles All the Way Down, The Fault in Our Stars is insightful, bold, irreverent, and raw. It brilliantly explores the funny, thrilling, and tragic business of being alive and in love.

“This is a book that breaks your heart—not by wearing it down, but by making it bigger until it bursts.”—The Atlantic 

“A story about two incandescent kids who will live a long time in the minds of the readers who come to know them.”—People

This is my favorite book of all time

I’ve said for years I think it’s a literary master piece. Listening to it, well it was a whole new experience and I loved every second of it. It’s a beautiful story, and reminds me of my mortality, and that love is so beautiful in all its forms.

I fell in love with this book...

...and let it crack me open. I finished it at work, fighting through tears for the last 3 hours or so. I drove to my next destination in silence, then listened to music and every song seemed to sing for the characters in the book. I came home and couldn't help but watch the movie, infuriated at all the differences in details. It feels like a sacred document, one that a movie can never do justice for. I still cried through every step of the movie anyway. I couldn't sleep, so I snuggled my son while he slept. Then stared at the moon, then got a whopping 2 hours of rest before waking up and feeling like I needed to review this book.

This isn't the place, but I don't care. When I was 30 I realized that the church I was raised in was a scam and a cult, which was devastating to me. My mental health plummeted. I think I've anyways been sad, but the event left me deeply, deeply sad. I'd spent my whole life hiding my feelings, but here they were on display for me and everyone around me. People would ask what was wrong and I would say "nothing" but I would think "Nothing, you're just seeing who I really am for the first time." That bittersweet, love/loss, blue feeling is where I reside; and I've learned that I love it here even when it gets difficult to manage.

I've always loved thinking about death. Where will I end up? What parts of me will remain, and which will have died with my body? Will I be everyone? Will I be a specific frequency in an entire universe of consciousness? I've learned that the best answers to these types of questions are not answers - they're feelings. This book is full of those feelings. To me, this book is the manifestation of that feeling, and evidence that I'm not the only one that knows it.

I started reading John's books after a quote from The Anthropocene Reviewed nagged at me for a year straight. It’s 5am so I'm not going to be bothered to copy/paste it here, but it's about falling in love with the world and letting it crack you open. My journey to heal from a toxic religion left me emotionally raw and tender, feeling the things I see and the miniscule moments I live in. This book crashed into my life, and I let myself fall in love with it, and I let it crack me open. Thank you, John.

I give The Fault in our Stars five stars.

The best writer of the generation

I laughed and I cried, I know that sounds trite but it is also true. I cannot give the perfect review without spoilers. I can say that this is amazing piece of literature and is life changing, if you allow it to seep into your soul.

Same audio as before...not sure what changed to warrant a release. would not have repurchased if I'd known that. But I'm not made about it. I love John Green and love The Fault in Our Stars. this is the book that reignited my love for reading.
