Heartbreakingly good!

The Fault in Our StarsThe Fault in Our Stars by John Green
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Despite the numerous reviews saying that this book is not about cancer or dying, let's be very clear that it is, without any doubt, about cancer and dying. But before you decide that it is not for you, it is definitely a must read. Your life would be the poorer for not having been introduced to Hazel Grace and Augustus, who are two of the most likeable characters I have encountered. This is not a sentimental portrayal of dying teenagers, but rather a very real look at what it means to be a teenager with cancer. Despite the seriousness of the subject, there is still loads of humour in the book, but be warned, it is heart-breaking!

John Green is a talented writer and each sentence is brilliantly constructed. It is impossible to read this book and not feel admiration for his skill.
