The Fault in Our Stars
Book #10 Read in 2013
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green (YA)
I knew this was a cancer book. I knew it would be an emotional read. What I didn't know was that I would love Hazel and Gus so much. These two were great characters. The pair meet at a cancer support group. Havel has cancer. Gus had cancer and lost a leg to it. The two connect at first through Issac, in the support group and Gus's friend. Issac is going blind from his cancer. Gus and Hazel have an immediate connection and they fall in love, despite Hazel trying to fight that from happening. But young love is never easy, let alone when cancer is involved.
This book was a great read. Readers will come to love these characters and yearn for their happiness. Green is an incredible author and his writing makes this not "just another cancer book". His writing immediately embraces readers into the lives of these characters and the plot surrounds all.
