The Fault in our Stars by John Green, review...

Title- The Fault in our Stars.
Author- John Green.
Publish Date-11th January 2012.
Publisher- Penguin.

Now for the review...

What I thought:
I was a touch unsure wether I would like The Fault in our Stars, because I'd attempted to read two of John Green's other books and hadn't liked them at all, so I entered the pages with a slight trepidation- I was... astounded.
I was thrilled.
I was, and am, incurably in love with this book!
The characters, mainly Hazel and Augustus, are amazingly well written, literate and both were filled with book quoting genius.
They weren't in any way "run of the mill" characters or the least bit like any other people I've met in books.
They were truly unique, ust like this story.
Now the story is easily and acurately, in my mind, described in the five words on the back cover-
Insightful. (Absolutely!)
Bold. (Too true)
Irreverent. (Ah- YES!)
And RAW. (Needless to say it is this too.)

This is definitely a book to read at all times- it is heartbreaking and powerful, funny and touching.
I adored it.


Thank you to Penguin for this review copy!

I reply to all comments, in case you were wondering.
Also, I've been putting Word Verification on and off and it's currently on because I turned it off on a friday and had seven spam comments on a Monday which is not good.
