The Fault in Our Stars

The Fault in Our Stars - John Green This left me in an uncontrollable, sobbing mess.My thoughts on the book:* The characters were wonderful and witty, despite the tragic situations they were in. When they made jokes or were sarcastic, I laughed out loud. Though, when they were angry, I felt angry with them.* The secondary characters in this book were wonderfully written and had a lot of time in the story. For example, Hazel's parents had a key role in the story and developed well. Often parents in YA novels are just sort of *there* in the background, but [a:John Green|1406384|John Green|http://d.gr-assets.com/authors/1353452301p2/1406384.jpg] wrote Hazel's parents in very well. I really enjoyed their personalities and sympathised with their situation a whole lot.* My favourite aspect of the book was the link between the fictional book in the story, written by Van Houten and the story for Hazel and Augustus. The way Van Houten's story ended, reflected how The Fault in Our Stars ended. After the last sentence in the TFiOS, I turned the page and felt a moment of disappointment. But then it came to me. It obviously ended because Hazel was too unwell, or had passed away. That was a very shocking moment for me and left me thinking about this book long after I had read it.* I loved the humour in the book. It was balanced well with the sad aspects of the story.* The themes and metaphors throughout the story were very apparent, but flowed very nicely.I highly recommend this book for anyone who reads. It is wonderful, witty, heartbreaking and beautiful written. Hazel and Augustus are, in my opinion, some of [a:John Green|1406384|John Green|http://d.gr-assets.com/authors/1353452301p2/1406384.jpg] best characters.
