I enjoyed this book more than I expected to. When I first learned of the premise I thought, "Sounds depressing." But the reality is quite the opposite. It takes a rare talent to turn terminal cancer into an uplifting story of love, friendship, and hope, and John Green accomplished just that. I found myself laughing and crying simultaneously throughout the story and marveling at the unique way August and Hazel saw the world. This book is brimming with inspirational one liners to type up and hang on your wall to read during those inevitable trying human moments. The Fault in Our Stars lies solely in the fact that we had to wait until now for this refreshing novel.
