The Fault in our Stars | Book Review

The Fault in our Star book is about Hazel Grace Lancaster, and how a book about a cancer sufferer which brings two sufferers close. The other sufferer being Augustus Waters.

 

But there is some fault in the characterization. John’s characters, Hazel Grace and Augustus, sound more like 25 or 30 year old adults then 17 year old teenagers.  The character of Augustus is more very mature according to his age. But then the wit John has used in his characters is wonderful to read. The sarcasm is outstanding. This made the dialog conversations between the main characters is realistic and fun to read.

 

I could imagine the characters in front of me conversing to each other. It was that clear. Also, the book is for a quodophile(i.e. me). I also feel, John develop these mature characters as the book also targets young adults and which I feel is a very good thing. The young adults could add something new to their vocabularies and learn some small-small morals which this book provides and make a good impact on their attitude and personality through their whole life. This effort, of the author, I appreciate.

 

There was also one more fault with the book is that in the end it becomes too much emotional. And that aspect I certainly do not like. But hey, I am not the author, John Green is, and he has full rights to write whatever he wants. Also, he being a male writer, wrote the entire book in female teenager’s point of view. And I feel, he did a good job. Never once, I felt that something was too manly about his female characterization.

Love stories are my favorite subject, and love story featured in this book has touched my heart to such an extent that I had shed a few tears along the way as I had followed the lead protagonist's journey towards finding her love and finding her soulmate. I've read some of the reviews about the love story being far-fetched and fast-paced, but to me it didn't seem that way at all, I loved the dynamic between the two love birds and how they had managed to discover one another and fell in love with each other, for I strongly believe we all have our very own soulmate out there somewhere and we won't ever find it by living buried in comfort far away from pursuing our dreams, and pursuing love that's meant for us.

The Fault in Our Stars - John Green

I LOVE this book.  John Green is an amazing writer.  I say this about a lot of books, but the characters are so memorable and unique!  While the ending did make me cry, I think it was realistic and necessary. This book gives you an interesting outlook on life.  READ IT!!!

Biographical Criticism: The Fault In Our Stars
The Fault in Our Stars - John Green

This book connects a lot with John Green's real life. He wrote it with a friend in mind. He and Esther Earl met online, and they became fast friends. When the later met in person Esther revealed that she had thyroid cancer. John Green wrote The Fault In Our Stars as a dedication to Esther. He said before the book came out he said "the person I most want to read it never will".
