Rating: 5/5 stars
Please note that I want this review to be absoulutely spoiler free. Seriously you will not get the same reaction that I and so many others got if I tell you what Happens so this review it going to be kind of short. But I seriously highly recommend this book to everybody and everyone should read it. Like right now. Now to the short review!

About the Book

Sixteen year old Hazel life is pretty complicated. Not only does she have thyroid cancer and just wants to stay at home and read her favorite book of all time. But when her mother starts to believe that she is getting depressed she sends her to a teen cancer support group to go and meet people and be happy. And there is where Hazel meets Augustus Waters. A very strange and brilliant boy who Hazel can't help but become best friends with. Augustus takes Hazel on many adventures that shows her that life is grand.


This. Book. Was. Brilliant. Honestly this book was just perfection. I loved it with all my all of my nerdfighter heart. If you guys don't already know, I am a huge John Green fan. He is one of my favorite authors and I think his books are great. So I knew that TFIOS would not dissappoint and I'm glad to say that I wasn't wrong.

#1 Characters

The characters in this book were great. I really loved Augustus ( of course) I thought he was great and I loved that he was really into symbolism. But I must say that my favorite character has to be Hazel's dad. He is seriously like the coolest and perfect dad. He knows what to say and when to say it and he doesn't really question Hazel in her desicions and I love that he's not afraid to cry. Hazel is a great character as well the only thing that kind of ticked me, not annoy but a light tick, was that she sometimes acted like she really didn't have much emotion. I understand that she is very brave and dosen't fall fo any, pardon my french, bullshit but there were parts that she didn't cry in. And that was kind of strange to me because I think that anybody would cry in what happened (not going to say what happened. That will be a spoiler)

#2 Writing

John Green's writing is great in this one just as it is in all his previous works. One thing that I always admired about his writing is that he always makes the main characters these deep, intelectual, smart teens. Which is funny because I know a lot of people that hate that about his writing. They say it's annoying because teens don't really talk or think about that kind of stuff. But I think it great because I have met a lot of older teens who do talk and think in a very deep mature way.
I also love that in this book the main character is a girl. If you have ever read any of John Green's other books you will know that all of his books are told in a boy's point of view. So it was really refreshing to have this story told in a female point.

So that's all for this review. I hope you all enjoyed it, sorry it's short but I wanted all of you guys to enjoy it and get the same feelings that I and so many other readers felt. This book will make you laugh and cry and cheer and just everything. I recommend this book to every living creature on planet earth. And Mars. And the Universe.

Hope you all read superb books
