Book Review: The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

Hi!

I am trying to add one more expectation unto myself which is reading 50 books this year. 

I don't know how long since I stopped doing book reviews, partly because I just read it for fun and relaxation so didn't bother to review and partly because my iPad is taking over this book lover in me. 

Facts:

Title: The Fault in Our Stars
Author: John Green
Publisher: Penguin Books
ISBN: 978-0-141-35507-8
Price: RM43.95 (Borders bookstore/ bought in 2014)

A short interlude of the story on the back cover:

Despite the tumor-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.

I wondered why this book had a considerable hype last year until I bought it myself to satisfy the curiousity.

And it is wonderfully written. I love Hazel Grace; she is real, none of those saint-like character being kind and good for others. She faced her fated days with resignation, instead of putting up a brave front. That feels real, feels human.

Then a guy comes and kind of ruins her resignation to life. But okay a gorgeous guy.

Honestly, I was expecting Hazel to die first...

Oh, a bit of a spoiler alert if you haven't read the book.

Truly a twisted plot and I should have finish reading it before when I bought it a few months ago.

Maybe I am sentimental but I did feel the love in this story, of how near death is and how it can happen unexpectedly but the most unexpected is the love that developed. 

Sucks, the ending hurts!

I didn't cry but yes, I felt sad. 

If you would like to read about terminally ill patients, I mean the real ones, this book is a good read.

Better still if you can pass this book to a patient. I honestly believe this book is a great read as it is as honest and truthful as life is.

Thanks for reading.

Bye!
