The Fault in Our Stars
The Fault in Our Stars is one hell of an emotional read.
It’s been on bestseller charts, it’s won Book of the Year accolades (including our own) and has award nominations and wins, and when you read it you will understand why.
In this book you’ll meet Hazel and Augustus – star crossed lovers.
It’s Romeo & Juliet but instead of feuding families you’ve got battles with disease, and while I don’t want to spoil the story, I do need to tell you that it is as equally passionate and tragic as that of R & J. So much so that I did find myself tear-ing up and shedding a few over it.
The writing is superb. It manages to deal with cancer, life, love and loss with humour and realism. It makes you care about all the characters and the journey they are on.
I would recommend not just for those who are unlucky enough to have to deal with child / teen illness and death, but for everyone – teen or adult – who enjoys a good story.
