The Fault in Our Stars Review!

Reblogged from Benefits of Being a Nerd:
The Fault in Our Stars - John Green

This is my third time reading John Green's The Fault in Our Stars and, if anything, it was even more satisfying than the first two reads. I thoroughly enjoyed revisiting Hazel and Augustus' story.


Every time I read this novel, I am surprised by how much I love these characters. I love the humour that they maintain in the face of illness and the genuine ways that they explore the side effects of dying. 


I can't thoroughly express my thoughts about this novel without spoilers, but suffice it to say that the events were even more profound for me in this reading than in the previous ones. I am so looking forward to the movie coming out this summer and cannot wait to see how this novel is translated to the screen. If the trailer is any indication, this movie is going to be fantastic!


Happy Reading!
