Moving story of love between two teenagers in the ever present reality of their own mortality
Very well written, really great narrator. Made you laugh, made you cry (a lot).
Cried, certainly. But I actually laughed a lot too.
The world is not a wish granting factory, but it's still a grand place, where people meet and give and get love.
Loved it, though it made me wonder if I'm just acting like a teenager for falling so much for these characters. I also expected to find it harder to handle the subject, but the people who are sick, are the best of humanity, and I found I wanted to go through it with them, even though, cancer sucks. I imagine John Green has done a great service to cancer patients, for this portrayal of life with cancer, especially young patients. It's a delicious bitter sweet.
So much better than the movie!! Love their connection and weirdness!! The play so well off each other. But a really tear jerker.
Really enjoyed the narrator--I felt she brought to life the characters through her thoughtful use of inflection and different voices. Can't wait to listen to more YA favorites.
I saw the movie before listening to the book, and aside from a couple unimportant character changes, found the movie to have gotten it right. I fell in love with Agustus Waters right along side Hazel, and hearing her thoughts added a much needed perspective to what I got from the movie.
