The Fault In Our Stars (TFIOS) ~ John Green
Hello my dear internet friends!
Sorry I haven’t blogged in a while! Uni has been incredibly hectic recently...and it’s only going to get worse from here. It’s late at night and I can’t be bothered going to bed so I thought I’d write a blog post!
I actually first discovered John on YouTube and loved his videos so I was keen to read his books when I realised he was an author.
Although TFIOS is classified as young adult fiction, I think adults would get just as much out of the story and fall in love with it as much as all the love-crazed teenagers are. John writes so eloquently and the characters he creates in TFIOS are oh so loveable.
I very, very rarely cry reading novels. I think the only other time I’ve cried while reading a book was getting tears in my eyes in one of The Hunger Games books (not entirely sure which one or why now but I remember that my eyes welled up). Even if you have a heart of stone, I’d be worried if you didn’t tear up while reading TFIOS. I bawled a lot while reading this...I’m fairly sure they’d be tear stains on some pages.
I love that in one single page of TFIOS, you can start off laughing, then sighing at the relationship ‘cuteness’, and then become a teary mess, all in the space of one page. This novel pulls at your heartstrings and you will not want the story to end. I actually got to a point in the novel where I couldn’t handle the heartbreak any longer, so I left it on my bedside table for a day. I picked it up again the next morning. You will not want the story to end yet you won’t be able to put the book down.
