The Fault In Our Stars

Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel’s story is about to be completely rewritten.

Reviews

“In its every aspect, The Fault in Our Stars is a triumph.” -Booklist, starred review

“Luminous.” -Entertainment Weekly

“A smartly crafted intellectual explosion of a romance.” -Kirkus, starred review

A blend of melancholy, sweet, philosophical, and funny. Green shows us true love…and it is far more romantic than any sunset on the beach.” -New York Times Book Review

“One doesn’t like to throw around phrases like “instant classic” lightly, but I can see The Fault in Our Stars taking its place alongside Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret in the young-adult canon. Green’s book is also a good example of why so many adult readers are turning to young-adult literature for the pleasures and consolations they used to get from conventional literary fiction.” -Time

“Green writes books for young adults, but his voice is so compulsively readable that it defies categorization. The Fault in Our Stars proves that the hype surrounding Green is not overblown.” -NPR

“A pitch-perfect, elegiac comedy…it will linger long and hard in the minds of teens and former teens.” -USA Today

“An achingly beautiful story.” -SLJ, starred review

“John Green deftly mixes the profound and the quotidian in this tough, touching valentine to the human spirit.” -Washington Post

I would like to express my warmest congratulations to John Green for this amazing book. It is a book that shows us the struggle that every day give the people with cancer and the problems they face.

Dear mr green
Sorry for the misspellings to come, my English is not very good (I’m Brazilian). I am a reader of his books, they are an inspiration to me. I wanted to ask a few questions and if you could then I would send the answer. Which was the inspiration for writing paper towns? What book you had greater difficulty writing and why? And the last question, why you chose Gus to die in The fault in our stars and not Hazel?
I love your books and hope to answer because I’m a big fan.
With all my admiration,
Clara

Dear Mr.Green, I’m am disheartened to say you have become my Peter Van Houten.In most of the story Hazel is trying to pursue the answers to her questions about An Imperial Affliction, but yet you do not feel the need to tell the readers what becomes of dear Hazel Grace.The Fault in Our Stars has become my An Imperial Affliction.You see I share many qualites with Hazel.I know the feelings that occur in her in the book.Now do not get me wrong I am a fan of the book.Hense “The Fault inOur Stars has become my Imperial Affliction” however I feel it a little conterdictory.If you do feel like speaking with me More on this matter or decide to tell the end of you book ,Mr.Green, I would love to read.”Quite Frankly,I would read your grocery lists” Yours with great admiration, Rose Frederickson jessicafrederickson2002@hotmail.com

beth August 3, 2015 at 2:48 pm

actually “the star wont go out” was writen by esther earl, john green, lori earl, and wayne earl

Amanda Ireton May 19, 2015 at 3:17 pm

I would like to think that Hazel Grace is Esther because Esther was the girl with the cancer and the tubes and stuff to help her breath.

Reply

Tim August 5, 2015 at 11:26 am

Also, Esther’s second name is also Grace. I wonder if he did that on purpose?

i agree with u amanda i would also like to assume that only

Rose,
I have to say that i agree with you! John Green indeed does NOT tell the ending of what happens to Hazel Grace, or many of the other characters. It might be true that he ended it that way, to add a nice ending, but I myself want to know what happens.

Bookbug November 1, 2015 at 7:19 am

You are indeed correct. All her life, Hazel, searches for answers to what happens to Anna’s mother, the Dutch Tulip Man and Sisyphus the hamster. I’m not John Green who will be able to give precise answers to what happens to Hazel, her mother, Gus’ s parents, Isaac and all but I have a theory of my own which I’d love to share with you. According to me, Hazel eventually dies in her sleep due to her shitty lungs and She and Gus meet again Somewhere with a capital S. Hazel’s parents stay together and her mom becomes a
great Patrick. Isaac stays blind for the rest of his life but meets a
girl who’s ready to accept him the way he is. Gus’ s parents move with his half sisters. This is my theory.

I know I am months late to answering but I feel the exact same way. What has happened to dear Hasel? This has been my question from the first time I ever read it and I keep going back to it. Every time I finish the book once more I always come up with my own version however,Weather it be she died or is living “Happily” With just the thought of Mr.Waters while watching ANTM. But this is just a little of my thought process while reading these books. Have a nice day Love stay beautiful.

I feel the same, seriously! “Frankly I would read his grocery list”. I said the same thing and trust me I read your review right after I commented!

Malayna September 23, 2015 at 2:51 pm
