The Fault in Our Stars, a book which made to the bestsellers list all over the world and not only that, it was then turned into a major Hollywood movie which again showed its charm. I'm not much into Love stories, especially the one which contains sick people, which on the other-hand turns the book into a Sad-Love story and movie into a 'Chick-Flick'

The Fault in Our Stars Book Review


The book soon became the Next-Big-Thing and websites flooded with reviews, mostly positive. After I heard that the movie is also doing well and everybody recommended reading TFiOS so I thought to give it a try. I read online reviews and my urge for reading this book grew more. I already had the eBook version of TFiOS, so without wasting time I started reading it. 

My Review for The Fault In Our Stars by John Green

Plot of the Book (No Spoilers)

The book is about two teenage people; Hazel Grace and Augustus Waters, both of them diagnosed with cancer and have numbered days to live. One day they meet at a Cancer Support Group (which is held every week in a nearby Church basement) and they become friends. The story revolves around their friendship which turns into love, their cancer which is making them weaker and An Imperial Affliction, a book written by a bastard named Peter Van Houten. 

Sorry, but I'm not going to spill any beans, If you are interested in this story then get a book and read it yourself. 

My Opinion

The initial chapters of the book were interesting (at least I found them interesting) and engaging. I really liked the attitude of one of the main protagonist 'Augustus Waters' and the way he smokes cigarettes without giving them the power to do the killing :P

The book became more interesting with every turning page and It was pulling me deeper inside. However there were some parts where the writer tried to portray his excellent English literature knowledge which went from above my head. The story went great and I was very excited as I was about to finish the book. The first 20 chapters were beautifully written and were very interesting but as I moved to chapter 21, the story started taking its turn, everything went very fast and I was a bit disappointed. 

Hoping that the things will soon change, I kept reading till the end. The end was not as I expected and I was disappointed with it. In my opinion, the end didn't justified the story, the end wasn't as beautiful as the rest of the story. 

Again at the end, the writer wrote things which had a deep meaning, I mean 'The curtains were Blue' kind of stuff where the author means to say that the Protagonist was Sad and people like me thought that 'The curtains were Fucking Blue' seriously that's my opinion.

Note: The phrase 'The curtains were Blue' wasn't used in the book TFiOS, I used it as an example to explain the deep meaning stuff.

Conclusion

Overall The Fault in Our Stars was a beautiful book and a must read for everyone. I will definitely recommend it to my fellow friends. If you are not much into books then you can Watch the movie with the same name.

My Rating: ★★★ out of 5
