Book Review: The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

The Fault in Our StarsThe Fault in Our Stars by John Green

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

You know how sometimes there’s this hype that surrounds a book; there’s a movie and quotes all over the internet but you just can’t will yourself to read it for some reason?
That’s how I felt about The Fault in our Stars at first. The movie brought the book in focus and I promised myself that I wouldn’t watch it until I had read the book.
But somehow, it just lay there on my bookshelf… my mind finding silly excuses to delay reading it to avoid the inevitable tearstorm.
Until day before yesterday, when I saw another book-turned-movie Me Before You. I wanted to read the book and I did pre book the movie tie-in edition. And suddenly, just like that, I knew this was it. I had to read this book.
5 hours. The book was over and I was committed. I don’t want to deconstruct characters or point out what appealed to me the most about the book or the author. All I know is that it made me laugh and cry and smile at the right places and its going to remain with me because it is surely getting multiple reads.
Of course, I watched the movie immediately after and tears were shed. But then, I smiled because thats what good books do. They make you sad because they are over but glad because you read them.
