The Fault in Our Stars

by John Green (2012)

Friday - - Great Reads -

If you still haven’t cried over this cult young adult love story, or caught up with the equally poignant movie adap­ta­tion that was re­leased last month, we won’t judge. What’s the sum­mer for, eh? But be warned – you’ll en­ter the ter­ri­tory of full-on water­works (you’ll need a towel, not tis­sues) when you read this haunt­ing ro­mance about two 16-year-old cancer pa­tients – Hazel Lan­caster and Au­gus­tus Wat­ters – who meet and fall in love at a sup­port group. Al­though stacked in the young adults’ sec­tion in book shops, Green’s ma­ture, poignant prose that flits wit­tily through topics as heavy as the fragility of life and the ur­gent pas­sion of doomed first love, bridges age groups. So go ahead and re­live the swoony pangs of first love.
