If u are wondering if u should read this book or not. U should this book is a life changer. I shared this book is all the pre-teens and teen age girls and boys at my school about this book. 90% of them have or are reading it. I did a study on the people who read the book. I would take their pulse before I started talking about FIOS then I would talk about and show clips of FIOS. All their heart rates went up in excellent. This book is one of the many amazing John Green books .
If that's not enough information and reasoning to read FIOS I don't know what will convince u. I'm such a big FIOS fan I have read the book OVER 25 times
This book will make u a better person I swear !
Can't. Stop. Crying.
I absolutely adored the evening at Orange in Amsterdam. The perfection of the evening just kept growing and growing, if you can even improve upon perfection. It was every girl's dream date and every boys roguish daydream. I mean...wow. Just wow. I felt like I ate that meal WITH them. I felt like I walked WITH them. I felt that I kissed Augustus. Just...wow.
I haven't, but I'm going to. Kate was a lovely reader. So generous to her audience and very patient, never rushing the moments or gaps. I'm so impressed!
When Hazel Grace says she knows why she didn't say 10 on the pain scale back when she was a little girl. She didn't say 10 on the pain scale because she was SAVING her 10. And then the 10 was there, and it was losing Augustus and that that grief washed over her again and again where she lie on the shore and was covered in water, but could not drown. I cried RIVERS. My husband died from a long term illness. 13 years a heart transplant and the last 8 months of his life were spent in a hospital 4 hours away from our home in Fort Worth. He was conscious the last 2 weeks of his life and this author captured perfectly what we went through. Perfectly. Amazingly. There were so many moments that I didn't want to relive, but it was so cathartic to do so. This author made me glad I had been through this horrible event so that I could appreciate this story even more.
I think I'm going to Augustus this author. I'd love to write them a letter and let them know how much this book meant to me. I love it.
"The Fault in Our Stars" is touching for so many reasons, and hits people across all ages.
I am perhaps not the target audience, being the father of teens, rather than a teen myself. Still, I found the story to be engaging and sympathetic. It didn't slide into false emotion or needless heart-tugging. The characters are going through painful experiences, and they do it like teens do, trying to live their lives.
All in all a good listen. I would listen to another book by John Green.
