The Fault in our Stars is my all time favorite book. I have read it multiple times over, and it still hits me every time. TFioS is written by John Green and follows the love story of Hazel and Gus. Unlike most YA romance novels though, Hazel has terminal caner and Gus is a survivor. This book breaks so many rules of a YA romance. While Looking for Alaska had a blowjob scene, this one has multiple tragedies. Though this book is sad, it will also make you laugh. In the same scene I will be on the verge of tears, then burst out laughing… John Green moved to Amsterdam for two months to properly write a chapter of this book set in Amsterdam. That love and dedication to his work is reflected so much through this book. It’s a must read.
In celebration of John Greens book Paper Towns being made into a movie, I am going to review The Fault In Our stars. The Fault In Our Stars is my all time favorite book, but I don’t review favorites. TFIOS follows Hazel and Gus, 2 teens that fall in love. Sounds pretty normal, Except for the fact that Hazel has terminal cancer, and Gus is an amputee from cancer himself. TFIOS follows them as they pursue together to meet one of their favorite authors, Van Houten, in Amsterdam. Being that TFIOS is my favorite book I have read it probably a dozen times, and I can confidently and happily say that this is one of the best, if not the best movie adaptations of a book ever made. The characters are wonderful, if at some points a little unbelievable for teenagers. The settings are beautiful, and this movie is deeper than most made for adults. You will laugh, you will cry, and you will run to the library and pick up the rest of John Greens books, hoping like the rest of us they’re all movies one day.
