The fault in our stars.

the fault in our stars

::sigh::

this book completes me.

I won’t lie to you and say that this story is all roses and posies – it is absolutely bitter-sweet.  But after all, most great novels are.  The quick sarcastic banter between the main characters in this book is a treasure.  It reminds me a little teeny bit of Juno with a surlyish see-it-like-it-is female lead.  Hazel Grace is an inspiration.  Augustus is someone you never want to forget.  This is a love story.  And even with the seriousness of cancer running through the story, and the reality of loss, you can’t help but be swept up in young love, living life to the fullest and capturing those small moments that make our lives what they are, and what we’ll remember.

okay?  okay.

(p.s. there’s rumor that the movie is in the works – ah can’t wait!)

  1. I have to admit this book has sat on my nightstand for a few months. I keep waiting until I have plenty of time to read, which never happens. I also have started Paper Towns, but haven’t finished that one either. I guess I will have to get this one started soon! Thanks for your post.

  2. I’ve heard so much about this book in the last few week, it must be my cue to pick it up and take a Bite – thanks for the recommendation and the motivation!

  3. I haven’t read this yet….but have heard it’s a treasure. I love Juno (OK, I’ll admit it publicly), so maybe I would equally love Hazel Grace. Thanks for the recommendation — so full of voice!

  4. I remember hearing a lot about this book last year, but I still haven’t read it. Your slice makes me want to make sure and read it. I have heard so many great things, and your first two lines made me excited to read the rest of your slice to refresh my memory of what has stood out to so many people. I actually haven’t read ANY of John Green’s books despite knowing that I just have to eventually!

  5. I forgot to say – I love the image (the stack of books with shoes) that you have that pops up next to your slice link on the Two Writing Teacher’s site. It was what made me want to read your slice today.
