The Fault In Our Stars | Book Review

John Green provides a heart-wrenching and thought provoking insight into the minds of two teenagers, battling cancer that will almost certainly leave you wanting more.

I’m not sure that I am capable of pulling together coherent thoughts on this wonderful but sorrow tale. Two years after reading and I am not ready to commit myself to the emotional turmoil of re-reading. I will however say, that this is one book to movie adaptationt that actually does the author and the original story some justice. There were of course scenes that I would have liked to see on the big screen that were thought to be ‘not important enough’ to include in the film, but I have to say, thy did a darn good job!

Now, for an all to emotional, and written in the heat of the moment review that I posted on ‘Good Reads’ moments after my third post-book breakdown….I write;

“You have a choice in this world, I believe, about how to tell sad stories…” Mr John Michael Green had a choice. A choice in how to deliver a sad story. He chose not to deliver a sad story but a happy one. A very truthful, well written, emotional happy story. He has a very distinctive and relatable writing style and always finds a way to relate to the reader whoever they may be. There are many issues addressed in this outstanding piece of literary wonder- the least of which are cancer-in the minds of our truly teenage star crossed lovers. I have not one dis-satisfactory comment to make about this novel or it’s author- which may be due to the fact that I am still living in the emotional blow-out that was ‘The Fault In Our Stars’. However, is more likely that it is  result of the literary genius that is Mr John Michael Green. Okay? Okay.
