The fault in our stars

 

I’ve read the book the fault in our stars by the author John Green. My expectations on the book before I read it was high because I’ve seen the movie and I really liked it. So before I read it I hoped that I would get more details in the book than in the movie.

The book is about a 17 year old girl who got cancer. Her name is Hazel, she’s got lung cancer and have to go around with an oxygen tube. Her mom thinks that she got zero social life and decides that she should go to a support group. The support group is full of other kids that got cancer as well. It’s in the support group that Hazel meets Augustus for the first time. Augustus had also got cancer so one of his legs are half. Augustus is only there because his friend Isaac didn’t want to be there alone. Isaac got cancer in his eyes and is also a very important character of the book. After Hazel and Augustus meet for the first time they start to get to know each other and hangout more and more often. Both Hazel and Augustus love to read so they give each other their favourite book. After this both of them got the same favourite book. The only issue with the book they read is that it doesn’t really end. So both Augustus and Hazel wants to know how the book ends and Hazel have send plenty of mails and letters to the author but he have never answered. At last he actually answers and Hazel and Augustus got to go to Amsterdam to meet the author…

I give the book 4/5 stars. I liked it very much but I don’t give it a 5/5 because I didn’t like the ending at all. If it wouldn’t end the way it did I would have give it five stars.

I would definitely recommend the book. For both boys and girls. I think the book fits mostly teenagers because the characters is teenagers and when you read it you can relate to many things they say or does. But of course adults can read the book to and enjoy it.

Book review

By john Green
Summary
The book is about a girl called Hazel Grace Lancaster and she has cancer in both her lungs. She carries a oxygen tube with her that help her lungs to work. Her mother and her doctor thought that she’s was depressed so they send her to a support group where she met Augustus Waters. They start to hang out and it seems like they start to like each other.

Then they do a trip to Amsterdam to meet Peter van Houten to ask questions about the book.

Characters
Hazel Grace Lancaster is a girl with lung cancer, she goes on many treatments and meets many doctors. Hazel is very honest and she is very thoughtful. Hazel is very aware about her situation.

Augustus Walters is my favorite character in the book is because he seems so sweet. He’s a very honest person and he cares about the people he loves. I think Augustus gave Hazel hope, he made her feel better and loved. He is the kind of guy you want to hang out with, everyone needs an Augustus Walters in their life who can support and be honest to them. Augustus has had cancer in his leg and amputee it.

Isaac is Hazel and Augustus friend, he has had cancer in one eye but later he gets a relapse and get fully blind. Isaac is very funny and kind. He goes through a heartbreak in the book but is still very supportive to his friends

I give the book 5 out of 5 because the book is very honest and you really get to know the characters. It’s a different book because the book doesn’t have the typical ending and it’s feels very true. I really recommend this book because it’s a very real story about life and loss.
