The Fault In Our Stars ~ Book Review


Last night I finished reading, The Fault In Our Stars by John Green. I sobbed. I laughed. I badly needed a hug. But then I went to bed with a content feeling that I have read one of the most amazing books. And I still can't come out of it.


I got this book as my birthday gift. But then I didn't start it immediately. After couple of months I started but still I couldn't read it continuously though. I had few breaks in between and even swapped with other books. But now after completing it, I am glad I read this. This by far the best book I read this year.

The Fault In Our Stars - A heart warming story which made me laugh at times, feel the agony, cry at the end and I still wanted for more.

'My thoughts are stars I cannot fathom into constellations,' is one of the lead character's dialogues. Well, this is how I feel right now trying to gather my thoughts but then I run out of words.

It’s about two teenagers, Hazel Grace and Augustus Waters,  who are terminally ill cancer patients, It's a story of their friendship, love, care, affection and about life and death.

The dialogues were witty, thoughtful, intense, painful, light and practical. Some dialogues impressed me. About the way they see their health condition. About the fun they have with friends. About their thought process on life. About how they got connected through one book, Imperial Affliction.

Many thing I could relate with it. I could even connect to the characters. Hazel is wise and she is someone who you would want to befriend with. Augustus Waters is someone who would charm you at the first meet. When Hazel felt this was the end of her life, it was actually just the beginning. It was fun when Gus and his friend Isaac comes together. And I loved Hazel's parent characters.

It was an amazing journey I traveled with Hazel and Gus. The book made me realize how many problems and issues I have, people have worser than mine and that I should handle it with ease and courage. After all, life is to live heartily.

This is not just a book review, but this is what I felt after reading it. Even though I am a fan of suspense and thrillers, this drama mesmerized me. And I think you should experience the feeling yourself.


It is a heartfelt read which I am sure, you'll fall in love with.

Today, we are on the brink of 2015, already prepared to farewell. I hope you all had a cherishable year and also I wish you all to have another wonderful one. Have a great start tomorrow.

Dream big. Work hard towards it. Only wishes make us thrive. May your wishes come true and also mine! :P :)

Happy New Year!
