A beautiful foil hardback editon of the multi-million #1 bestseller, now a major motion picture starring Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort. "I fell in love the way you fall asleep: slowly, then all at once."

You laugh, you cry, and then you come back for more' - Markus Zusak, author of The Book Thief
I liked this more than I expected. In particular, though the characters on occasion were cliche, overall I found them unique and believable. Lots of humor in a tough situation. And a GREAT title, even if borrowed.

funny and sad
the main characters are very hilarious especially when they are trying to get on each others nerves. but as their tragic circumstances does not improve, their sense of humour seem to be one way of living meaningfully in their last days together. suitable for teenagers who are going through tough times.

I Loved it
I am a 77 year old married male who almost never reads fiction. I heard about the book on NPR and ordered it. I found it to be a very interesting look into the lives of several young people less than one fourth my age who were facing things I can only imagine. I highly recommend this book.

Characters brought to life with great narration. Laughter and tears make this story one of the most memorable I have read in years.

I bought this for a teenage neighbor, and I don't think I've ever seen a happier girl. She says that this is the best book she's read and that all of her friends were enraptured by it as well.
