For the past couple of days, I’ve been reading this book a lot of people are talking about now. The Fault in Our Stars is a book John Green wrote about two teens who have cancer and find each other during their battle with it. I know Green’s books are quite controversial as there are as many people who don’t like them. However, after The Fault in Our Stars I’d love to read some other books he wrote. I can’t and don’t want to give any spoilers about this story but I think everyone whould just read it.
I can tell one thing, though. When I started hearing so much about the book, I decided to try it only because of how famous it had become (and also because I knew that Shailene Woodley was going to be the main character in the movie). However, when I started reading I couldn’t avoid thinking that it would be a simple teenage love story with a very obvious way to make the readers care and maybe cry more. But very soon I understood that nothing is as simple as it looked in that story. By the end of the book I’ve been crying indeed. Through the whole 2 chapters non-stop and not only because of the characters or events in the story. I cried so much because of the messege I’ve got from the book. I guess everyone takes something different from reading the same book but the messege I got was heartbreaking to me. It’s also very personal so instead of telling you what I understood after reading it, I suggest you take some time to read the book yourselves and realize what your own messege is. All time spent reading this books is well spent time.
Just a few quotes from the book.
P.s Someone quite accurately summarized the possible feelings after reading this book.
