The Fault in Our Stars
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green, (Reviewed February 8th 2018 )
Despite the tumour-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel's story is about to be completely rewritten. (quote; Penguin.co)
Insightful, bold, irreverent, and raw, The Fault in Our Stars is award-winning author John Green's most ambitious and heartbreaking work yet, brilliantly exploring the funny, thrilling, and tragic business of being alive and in love. (quote; Penguin.co)
Filled with dark humour and written with a beautiful simplicity that that draws the reader in so deeply that it's not just the twist and turns but the gently bends and curves that you feel tugging at your emotions... No doubt in the end you will cry but you will also feel that you have discovered a little something about living. (quote; Daily Express).
This was a novel that gave real pleasure to many in our group but left others unmoved. The most popular score was 5 out of 5 but we also had a 2 – another left the book unfinished on the table.
