Beautifully written and pungent as all get out. Read it out loud to someone you love.

Okay, the tears have stopped rolling off my nose. The subject is life among cancer-stricken teenagers. Loss, anger, pain, family, dreams, frustrations are treated honestly, with humor and pathos. From the eulogy of one of main characters comes this line, "You don't get to choose if you get h... Read More »

Knew the premise going in, yet was blown away by how moving it was. Terrific writing, with an authentic feel for teen expression.

This is beyond amazing. One of Green's best, and one of the best books of the year.

A very sad but funny story bout a couple with many hardships in their relationship. Personally one of Greens greatest books

A patron review from the Adult Summer Game: "This was a good book, but a very emotional read at times."

This book was recommended to me by my friend. She warned me at first but I didn't believe her until I got to the end of the book. I haven't cry so much on a book than this one. It's truly amazing and develops a strong love story about two cancer kids.

This book can not be described in words. The ending had been spoiled for me by a friend so when I started the book I knew what was going to happen. But even though I knew what was going to happen to Hazel and Gus, the book hooked me. I could not stop reading it and it never ceased to amaze and shock me. I cried over this book. READ IT!!!

I feel like John Green lacks new content or fresh material.His book are based on the same things.A Nerdy Teenage Girl with thoughts and vocabulary teens don't use.I like how John Green says this isn't a cancer book because cancer book sucks.However this revolves around cancer itself.Hazel and Gus are the living side effects but the things is:If you take the cancer away you get two dull teens.Just think if Hazel and Gus didn't have cancer we would have lifeless characters.So in a sense this is a cancer book.

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.

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.
