Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel's story is about to be completely rewritten. Insightful, bold, irreverent, and raw, "The Fault in Our Stars" is award-winning author John Green's most ambitious and heartbreaking work yet, brilliantly exploring the funny, thrilling, and tragic business of being alive and in love. From "The New York Times" bestselling author of "Looking for Alaska", "An Abundance of Katherines", "Paper Towns" and - with David Levithan - "Will Grayson, Will Grayson". John Green has over 1.1 million Twitter followers, and almost 700,000 subscribers to Vlogbrothers, the YouTube channel he created with his brother, Hank. "The Fault in Our Stars" will capture a crossover audience in the same vein as Zadie Smith, David Nicholls' "One Day" and "Before I Die" by Jenny Downham. "Electric ...Filled with staccato bursts of humor and tragedy". (Jodi Picoult). "A novel of life and death and the people caught in between, The Fault in Our Stars is John Green at his best. You laugh, you cry, and then you come back for more". (Markus Zusak, author of "The Book Thief").
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.

John Green did a great job on this book. Perfection.
