Last year I lost my daughter to cancer. For me, it was a big risk to listen to somebody's fictional account of what they think it might be like to go through that journey with your child. However, Fault In Our Stars was worth the leap of faith.
The author provided a level of insight that brought my tears streaming back - in a positive way. Insights like "the last good day", and how it comes and goes without you knowing, and sitting beside a bed and whispering in your child's ear is exactly how it happened for my wife and I. It was great to have the author's turn of phrase and expression reinvigorate the memory of our time with our daughter.
Don't make a film out of the book. The beauty of this book is the turn of phrase and the descriptions of the situation. Film dialogue could not do it justice.
The book is another way to grieve, but for me, it was more beneficial than the thousands of books that describe the practical actions of grieving in everyday life.
