The Fault in Our StarsTitle: The Fault in Our Stars

Author: John Green

Genre: Teen Fiction

Length: 318 pages

I was told not to bother reading this book.  It is predictable.  It is overly sentimental.  It is both those things, but it what telling you that does not include is how adorably witty the banter and narrative are.  The characters are clever, and fun, and teenagers, despite their cancer – and this reminds you that even the sick are human, even the terminal have personalities outside their prognosis.

I read the book in one sitting.

I enjoyed every page.

Peter Van Houten was a nice touch – and if you don’t know what that means, I suggest you read the book.  No skipping to the movie.  Read the book, it’s a quick, smooth read, that may remind you of people you’ve lost.  After all, we all have roughly 14.
