The Fault in our Stars by John Green

The fault in our starsI read ‘The Fault in our Stars’ by John Green, for two reasons. Firstly everybody I knew seemed to have read it and secondly, it had a really cool cover.

It tells the story of Hazel, a girl with cancer who is using a constant stream of drugs to keep her alive. One day, at a Cancer support group she visits, she meets Augustus Waters and evidently she has to fall in love with him.

The story then progresses. Hazel and Augustus go to Holland to meet Hazel’s favourite author who turns out to be a drunk, whilst nearing the end of the book Augustus’ cancer comes back and kills him.

In my opinion the storyline wasn’t a particularly strong one, or maybe I’m just not cut out for romance novels. However I do think that John Green wrote the book superbly. The first few chapters especially had a firm writing style and made you really connect and emotionalise with Hazel.

Out of ten? I would give this book an eight.

    I suggest that you might want to use “A life of organised crime” for your new slogan

    you seemed quite critical why such a high 8? From the sounds of it, it was more of a 6
