A review of The Fault in Our Stars

I love John Green’s books, and out of all of them, The Fault in Our Stars had a certain beauty to it that it’s one of my favorite books. It’s about love, loss, and what it means to have cancer. It’s one of those books where you want to cry one minute and laugh the next. Hazel is one of the most charming characters I’ve ever read. She is very smart and funny, and you can relate to her. Augustus is charismatic and very romantic. He’s not afraid to say what he thinks, he always has something profound to say, and he’s one of John Green’s finest characters.


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.

This book really left an impact on me. It made me realize that no matter what outcome, no matter how bad things might seem, there’s always a silver lining. Even though this book may sound sad and depressing, it really is fun and fresh. Between spunky Hazel Lancaster and romantic Augustus Waters, this book is a winner. This book is honest, real, and very emotional.The fault, dear Brutus is not in our stars, / But in ourselves, that we are underlings.” Caesar (I, ii, 140-141)
