Description

The multi-million #1 bestseller, now a major motion picture starring Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort. "I fell in love the way you fall asleep: slowly, then all at once." 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. ** A thought-provoking love story from the New York Times bestselling author of Looking for Alaska, An Abundance of Katherines, Paper Towns and - with David Levithan - Will Grayson, Will Grayson. ** John Green has over 2.6 million Twitter followers, and over 2.1 million subscribers to Vlogbrothers, the YouTube channel he created with his brother, Hank. ** 'Electric ...Filled with staccato bursts of humor and tragedy' - Jodi Picoult ** 'A novel of life and death and the people caught in between, The Fault in Our Stars is John Green at his best. You laugh, you cry, and then you come back for more' - Markus Zusak, author of The Book Thief

Judy's Review
This is an emotional novel, which unflinchingly tackles the big issues - life, death and love. Yet it handles them with care and whit. The story of Hazel and Gus is simultaneously heart warming, funny, dazzlingly witty and tragic. Which is a tall order, but John Green pulls it off brilliantly. Hazel is sixteen and has terminal cancer. A new wonder drug has bought her some time, but she knows she is going to die. It's tough to describe how a young girl feels about that, but Green succeeds in making her super intelligent, with a great sense of humour. At the beginning, Hazel, who has survived stage four cancer for three years, is unsurprisingly clinically depressed. Encouraged by her doctor and her mother, she goes to a weekly 'Kids-With-Cancer' support group. There she meets the wonderfully attractive Gus. He is eighteen and a cancer survivor. Unlike Hazel, he is officially in remission. The two of them arte kindred spirits, sharing the same sharp and irreverent sense of humour. They fall in love. Gus and Hazel are an immensely charming couple, and as a reader you are deeply drawn to them. They spend a lot of time laughing, and you laugh with them. Yet, at the same time, you never forget the dark side of their daily lives. How long will Hazel live? What is the meaning of her short life? The Fault in Our Stars is honest, charming, raw and deeply moving.
