Update 25 06 2014 Since I ve been receiving a lot of cyber bullies and hate messages, I m going to clarify few things Firstly, this is a negative review of the book and it has got a lot of potential to infuriate the fans If you think that your opinion is the only opinion that exists on earth and that no one should dislike your favourite book, then I would suggest you to avoid this review Secondly, This is my review and I have the freedom to analyse and criticise this book as I wish to without be [...]
I HATE this book Absolutely hate it Not just from the bottom of my heart which would literally mean my ventricles, and so, no but with my whole heart I hate it, hate it, hate it.I hate the fact that it made me laugh, so hard I hate the fact that it made me smile, so much I hate the fact that it made me chuckle, so profusely I hate the fact that it gifted me with so much Laughter, Smiles and Chuckles when I was expecting to come face to face with tragedy at any moment changed my expectations, mad [...]
1.5 stars.EDIT Changed the rating because it s gotten to the point where my sister and I have inside jokes on how stupid and shallow this book is I can t think about this book without getting angry.I have a history with pretentious people.My biggest mess involved two boys in particular who were so incredibly full of themselves that for the first time in my life, I openly expressed my dislike to them They know that I couldn t care less about their hotness or just how amazing they were So goddamn [...]
At age twenty two, John Green worked as a student chaplain in a children s hospital Let s take a moment and consider all the implications of that, and why he is making a colossal understatement when he described the experience as devastating That was about twelve years ago, and Green has said in interviews that because of this experience, he s spent twelve years trying to write a book about kids with cancer not poster children of strength and courage and illness granted wisdom, but real kids and [...]
It seems silly that I have to say this, but I ve seen many a negative review of this book met with backlash from John s nerdfighter fans, so I want to make one thing clear I like John Green You ll find plenty who worship him as a god amongst men and many who are highly critical of him, I fall into neither of these categories but I do like him and I enjoy watching his videos I find him funny and I agree with a lot of what he stands for I also appreciate the amount of charity work he does and the [...]
I must be clear from the beginning This is perhaps the most personal review I have written My choice of stars was difficult for this I am a self confessed John Green fan, I believe he is amongst the best of, not only YA, but fiction writers out there in general This is a beautifully written book There is very little to complain about in terms of style, plot, character, etc However I couldn t, in all good conscience, give this any higher because it sits so badly with me I have let this novel mari [...]
As seen on The ReadventurerThe Fault in Our Stars currently has a rating of 4.74 on , almost everyone I know has given it 5 stars, therefore I m certain no one would want to read my sour musings, except me and maybe a couple of other like minded and unimpressed.What I d love to know is this what makes a writer undertake the topic of cancer So much has already been written about it, so many Lifetime movies filmed, so many tears shed It literally has been done to death What new did John Green have [...]
This is me after I finished the book and whenever I think about it pointless EDIT Woooah 1000 likes I m surprised how many people are willing to read my little blurb of nothingness EDIT In a lot of peoples reviews I keep seeing they don t talk their age or They make these beautiful long speeches which is something that normal teenagers don t do and I have to point out that Augustus and Hazel AREN T normal teenagers They ve had to go through so much in their lifetime than a lot of teenagers will [...]
John Green.John Green.John Green.You re not like Peter Van Houten, are you What have you done to my braind my heartI m not gonna review how exquisite John Green can write, or how he can create characters as special as Hazel Grace and Augustus Waters, or how amazing he can tell a story Despite the huge number of ratings and the spectacular average rating, this book is not perfect You might find it unrealistic, because if there are many of us who see the life and its complexity like Hazel and Gus [...]
The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars But in ourselves.This is the first time I ve truly been at a loss for words What am I supposed to say How can I do this book justice Maybe tell you all that it was perfect The best, most heartbreaking, hilarious book that has touched me like none other Sure I mean, it s been said countless times, in countless reviews, and you know what They are absolutely, a hundred and fifty percent true.Hazel s days are numbered thanks to her crap lungs She was able [...]
Venn you vish upon a star
Hang on a sec.I m gonna leave the rating blank now, cause I feel like I wouldn t have given this book five stars had I read it today Yeah, it definitely impacted me once upon a time, but now I ve read so many unbelievably emotional books that this one just seems to, quite frankly, fade into the background I ve read a handful of eye opening reviews and analyses that have made me see this book in a new light A dimmer light, sadly.Sorry to disappoint the people who liked my former review, where I c [...]
I m just going to sit here, write my review and pretend there aren t already 100 179 reviews for The Fault in Our Stars posted on this incredible online community.Let s start, shall we First of all, I didn t cry I know many of you did, and I can understand why, I really can But, the thing is this book has a balanced atmosphere It s both sad and full of life During my reading, I concentrated on the joyful parts and the humour Maybe that s why I didn t feel crushed by the cancer part The number of [...]
So, book, you decided not to play fair, huh You used Tearjerking 101, huh You armed yourself with adorably precocious teenage characters delivering insanely quotable lines while dying from cancer, huh Well, guess what I m not cryyyyying It s just been raining on my face And so my hard won cool image of a cold hearted cynic has been saved by this line, courtesy of New Zealand s 4th most popular guitar based digi bongo acapella rap funk comedy folk duo Seriously, book, you know that most heartstri [...]
I feel so sorry for these privileged, middle class, white teenagers.
FIVE OKAY INFINITE STARS OKAY OKAYThere are almost 33000 reviews of this book Why do I try to write one I just don t know but I do know that I have to let you know my thoughts about this AWESOME book.I love YA Even if I take YA holidays sometimes and stop reading it I can t deny it s one of my fave genres This book and Forbidden are probably my favourite YA books and right now I cannot decide which one is my absolute favourite I knew about this book, I knew how it ended and I thought I couldn t [...]
I had never read a John Green novel prior to reading this one I wanted very much to like it and felt certain after reading some of the overwhelmingly positive reviews here that it would be an awesome and heartbreaking experience I was ready and excited I guess I could sum the experience up best by stating that it is unlikely I will read another book by this author, and if I do it will be sometime in the future when I forget how utterly disappointing I found this book to be I had a lot of problem [...]
Holy holy holy I waited so long for this novel, so long I wish so bad I could give it than 5 stars John Green is absolutely amazing, amazing, amazing The Fault in Our Stars had me laughing and crying, then laughing and crying I will reread this over and over again, just like the rest of his novels Oh wow, was it ever worth the wait Thank you, John Green, for being so damn spectacular.
Okay, maybe I m not such a shitty writer But I can t pull my ideas together,My Thoughts are stars,I can t fathom into Constellations I was thinking about the universe wanting to be noticed, and how I had to notice it as best I could I felt that I owed a debt to the universe that only my attention could repay I wished the author would add The Creator of the Universe wants to be noticed, with pray,or even just proper notice , not in a lame way or anything,I know many may think it d be direct speec [...]
Let me start with how I feelMy heart hurts It bleeds, it cries This book made me feel How to articulate and not post a bunch of nonsensical babble Did I enjoy reading this book No.Did this book make an everlasting impression on me, in a good way Yes.Would I read it again Well, yes I m a masochist.Who should read this book Everyone.What did this book teach me That life isn t fair, but that doesn t mean you shouldn t live it to the best of you ability And a whole lot , but I think you get my meani [...]
But, Gus, my love, I cannot tell you how thankful I am for our little infinity I wouldn t trade it for the world You gave me a forever within the numbered days, and I m grateful Some books will make you laugh so hard your stomach will hurt.Some books will make you so mad that you d want to throw the book out the window or burn it in fury.Some books will leave you asking for because it ended with a cliffhanger.Some books will leave you questioning why it ended the way it did.Some books will leav [...]
you have a choice in this world, i believe, about how to tell sad stories, and we made the funny choicehn green, like his characters, always makes the funny choice and readers, like women are really just looking for a sense of humor and the sense of humor goes a long way towards pardoning other sins because come on, john green your characters are so unlikely ordinarily, i would squirm at such clever,verbose,insightful, literary reference dropping teenagers but they are so funny and charming, alw [...]
I can be honest, right After all, it was I who spent time reading this book.I guess it has something to do with the fact that so many friends and relatives raved about this book being sad and great prior to my reading For example, an 8 year old niece of my wife said that she cried while reading the book because it is about teenagers with cancer Then of course most of my GR friends, foreigners and locals alike, rated this book with either 4 or 5 stars.So, when I started reading this book, I thoug [...]
This is the John Green i est book of all John Green books, and I hate it and him than anything My sister and I actually have a running joke where we just quote this book back and forth to each other Although honestly anytime anyone says It s a metaphor, I immediately say ya put tha killin thing between ya teeth but ya don t give it the power to do its killin , affecting the mannerisms of a stereotypical paperboy from the 1920s.It gets a laugh every time Or at least a sound of disgust, which is [...]
Hazel is a 16 year old girl with stage IV thyroid cancer, and has been living with an oxygen tank since she was first diagnosed at 12 She realizes she is going to die, but she is on a drug that is keeping the tumors at bay At a support group meeting she meets hottie Augustus Waters, who is in remission They immediately hit it off and change each others lives drastically.The Fault in Our Stars is another beautifully written book by John Green A few months ago John made a video on his youtube chan [...]
4.5 stars Hello, yes I recognize that this book is one of the most pretentious novels in YA history and the hype killed it years ago but THIS BOOK This book is iconic and heartbreaking and beautiful and just so well written In 2014 I read it 6 times in a row and maybe back then my perception was skewed but even when I reread it this past year I still loved it soooo much I was still flipping the pages as if I didn t know what was coming next, still staying up late to read it, still sobbing on the [...]
What can I say about this amazing book that has not already been said a million times It s real, heart wrenching and so, so well written I m a fan of alll of John s books but this one is a masterpiece I m not even exaggerating.
For people who haven t read this book yet Read the book first so you love the movie and connect But always remember, Nothing ever lives up to an amazing book Just a few weeks for the movie D D D D I wish they cast him, he s so pretty And they ve taken Shailene Woodley for Hazel Grace QUOTE IMAGES So here I lay, after reading this book with swollen eyes, a runny nose, a wet puffy face and a whole lot of heart ache and a head ache too.This book was beautiful I have no words for how I felt about t [...]
