THC’s Unofficial Book Club: The Fault In Our Stars

The_Fault_in_Our_Stars

I finished The Fault In Our Stars by John Green the other day month and it was pretty darn good!

It’s a page-turner that’s for sure.

SUMMARY: (from amazon)

Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel’s story is about to be completely rewritten.

Insightful, bold, irreverent, and raw, The Fault in Our Stars is award-winning-author John Green’s most ambitious and heartbreaking work yet, brilliantly exploring the funny, thrilling, and tragic business of being alive and in love.

Let’s be clear right from the start: This book is sad and really tugs at the heart strings. That being said, I feel like it could be a very realistic take on being a sick teenager… Not that I have a clue what Gus, Hazel and Isaac are going through.

I’m so happy I read this before the movie comes out – if I ever see it. I’m not big on sad, heart-felt romance type movies. I’d rather read about intense stories instead of watch them. It’s like I can only handle sadness on paper, not on screen. I cried for 2 hours after The Impossible ended. It’s too much.

Anyways I totally recommend The Fault in Our Stars and give it a:

I didn’t give this book a heart, because it left me feeling weird. That doesn’t mean I don’t think it’s good or worth a read… It is. There was just something that didn’t sit well with me. Something stuck with me for a couple weeks after reading it, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing.

That being said, it really made me appreciate some things. Like being able to walk, breath and pretty much do whatever I want, whenever I want, because I’m healthy. For that alone it was worth the read.

    Thanks for the book recommendation! I’m always looking for something new to read. Anything that opens your eyes & makes you appreciate the little things is good in my opinion. I just finished reading The Supreme Understanding by Osho…it’s a very spiritual book but it was still an interesting read! Xx
