It’s not the kind book I could write well, and on some level, the thing that we imagine will always be better than any real approximation of it that might come to exist.

Ha. Clearly not going to be a receptive audience." Exactly. I wouldn't go on a thread titled "People who think Pride and Prejudice sucks" because, frankly, I don't have that kind of time to waste.

"The Fault in Our Stars" has officially reached phenomenon status.

You will know the answer after reading this description. So hold on till the end.:) This book came out in and it was only recently i read it.

I am being honest as hell when i say this, that this book, is by far the best one I’ve ever read.

Bibliographic record and links to related information available from the Library of Congress catalog. The Fault In Our Stars is a fictional book. Hazel is not a real 16 year old girl and Gus is not a real 17 year old boy. Although they are not real, their cancer story is real for many people.

I believe that the book could help someone cope if they have lost a loved one to cancer, or if they have someone in their life who has it. When I first saw this book a few years ago, I said 'I know it's not my fault; I've done lots of healing from my past filled with abuse.' I hadn't read the subtitle.

This book opened my eyes to why, despite all the years of healing that I'd already gone through, I hadn't been able to release the emotions that I'd buried along with memories good /5(22).

When reading The Fault in Our Stars, you feel for Hazel and the other characters. The book starts to become you, and you just want to keep on reading it.

The Fault in Our Stars is a beautiful novel and I would recommend it to anyone who believes in love and has the courage to fight for it.

Through this book I realised that cancer not just touches. It's quite rare to get a book with this subject matter, and when you do you hope that it will be good. Sometimes they disappoint you, but I. Earlier this week, 20th Century Fox revealed the official trailer for the film adaptation of John Green’s heart-wrenching young adult novel, The Fault in Our Stars.

I have no doubt at all that Author: Grace Brock. Hazel is our kind of lady. Why. Because she loves to read. One book in particular really inspires her: An Imperial Affliction.

It's about a young girl with cancer, so it's no wonder it hits home. But what really gets her is the ending: the book ends mid-sentence. Psychologist McGraw writes for anyone who has ever been disappointed by a shrink or a self-help book.

Although she herself has joined the club that she dismisses here, she puts a novel spin on the self-help genre: people who are struggling to recover from a painful relationship--be it with a parent, child, lover, or friend--should not feel guilty for failing to fix themselves in ten steps/5.

I wanted to write a review about THE FAULT IN OUR STARS by John Green because I really loved this book but I worried about how to write a review for a book that has become so iconic and that so many people have read—I worried that I wouldn’t have anything new to then I thought, maybe there is someone out there like me: a mom, whose.

Zook Review here, this is the book review of The Fault in Our Stars. Enjoy. Like and Subscribe. It is not much of a spoiler to reveal that, unlike many recent Young Adult books-turned-movies, The Fault in Our Stars does not feature any vampires (Twilight), or take part in a .The Fault in Our Stars gets the most love and the most hate of John Green's books.

I think the main reason why people don't like it is because there's no "antagonist". The characters are fighting not to win, but to reach peace before they lose. The Fault in Our Stars The fact that she watches America’s Next Top Model also made me feel better about my TV viewing An Imperial Affliction is the greatest book that never was.

The story is not depressing despite its subject matter. It does get incredibly sad at points of course, but it is uplifting throughout, which is the main.
