I don’t remember the last book that made me cry. Or even if there ever was one. Until I finished John Green’s The Fault in Our Stars. I cried. Repeatedly. Movies, yes, sometimes, but books? Yes, this one made me weep.
It was brilliant. It was sassy and real. Incredibly moving. From what I understand, people love it or hate it. Probably because of that real-factor. You need to read it. Yesterday!
I alternated between the Kindle book and the audiobook, thanks to Amazon’s Whispersync feature. I loved the audio, because it put Hazel’s voice in my head and gave me my “fix” when I didn’t have time to read, only commute. But I went back and re-read/caught up on my Kindle, because it was a wonderful read–and because I was enjoying my new Paperwhite.
By the way, John Green is amazing. I am compelled to read more by him. Have you seen his discussion of the U.S. health care system? I love how he sees the world. And wouldn’t it be a hoot if at random, I spotted him one day in Indy when I’m down there visiting my bf’s family? I love random celeb sightings, even if they are only important to me!
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This book was 5 stars for me before I even finished the first chapter. Dark, witty, incredible!
