“I fell in love the way you fall asleep: slowly, then all at once.” A line from The fault in our stars which sums up my feelings for it. I was thinking of reading The Fault in Our Stars for a long time . I took courage, started and let me tell you that it wasn’t what I was expecting. The story was not really about their sickness but rather about their ordinary, normal life with unique circumstances. It portrayed how people with cancer lead a normal life as much as possible and did the best they could everyday.It is A beautiful story of Augustus waters (A.k.a. Gus) and Hazel Grace brilliantly exploring the funny, thrilling, and tragic business of being alive and in love. John Green balances grace with gravity, wit with heart.
This was such a great book. So many lines that just kick you right in the gut. It’s surprising because this book is really funny too. So you’ll be reading along, chuckling at the banter between the characters and then all of a sudden BAM! This s*** just got serious. It totally works though, because that’s how lots of people deal with hard things. They wrap it up into something funny and more manageable.
I feel like i have a lot to say you know but I can’t express my feelings for The Fault in Our Stars with words alone because they might not be enough to explain my love for the fault in or stars or its impact on my life . This book is a masterpiece by John Green we all have been waiting for. It takes you in to the World of Hazel Grace & keeps you there from the very first page and you feel like you just don’t want to come out of it. The fault in our stars tells the story of Hazel Grace 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 completely rewritten.
This book depicts the life of a cancer patient & talks about their struggles, The struggle of people who love them, death & oblivion. TFIOS takes you in the life of a cancer patient and shows you life from their perspective. Hazel grace tells her story in a charming way which is sometimes hilarious & sometimes heartbreaking.

Beautifully conceived and executed, this story artfully examines the largest possible considerations—life, love, and death—with sensitivity, intelligence, honesty, and integrity. In the process, Green shows his readers what it is like to live with cancer, sometimes no more than a breath or a heartbeat away from death. But it is life that Green spiritedly celebrates here, even while acknowledging its pain. In its every aspect, this novel is a triumph.
Hazel loved An Imperial Affliction & I loved how she was addicted to a novel. I’ve never been that obsessed with one novel before and it just seems amazing and wonderful. The only problem is this novel is fictional and now I want to read it and I can’t.
Hazel grace said ‘Like all real love stories, ours will die with us, as it should.‘ But it doesn’t you know their love story will remain in mine and in the heart of million other fans till thier little infinity.
“‘I’m gonna talk about math. I’m not a mathematician, but I do know this: There are infinite numbers between zero and one. There’s point one, point one two, point one one two, and an infinite collection of others. Of course, there is a bigger set of infinite numbers between zero and two or between zero and a million. Some infinities are simply bigger than other infinities. A writer that we used to like taught us that.” I too had mine little infinity with them.Like Issac I also don’t want to see a world without Augustus Waters in it.
“Pain demands to be Felt.”
“In the end, we both lost. So it goes.”
“Augustus and I were together in the Improbably Creatures Club: us and the duck-billed platypuses.”
“It seemed like forever ago, like we’d had this brief but still infinite forever.”
“I owed a debt to the universe that only my attention could repay, and also that I owed a debt to everybody who didn’t get to be a person anymore and everyone who hadn’t gotten to be a person yet.”
And one now last word “Okay”.
