Hazel Grace Lancaster is a girl who is not ordinary. She has cancer, and it has taken a huge toll on her life. Hazel stays at home a lot and watches TV. She dreads going to her support group. Hazel finds life very dull and boring, until one guy shows up at the meeting. His name is Augustus Waters and he lost a leg to cancer. After support group is over, they meet each other and start a conversation. Immediately, Augustus claims that Hazel is beautiful and extraordinary. They start to hang out together, and they hold a long lasting bond that will never be destroyed.
I thought that this book was magnificent in all ways that are possible! The characters are portrayed very well. Hazel and Augustus have very different personalities, but they still get along very well. I love how the book is in the point of view of Hazel because she is one of the main characters and you can see everything from her perspective. Throughout the book, there are many twists and turns that make the book very unique. Every aspect of the book is wonderful. Throughout the book, you can feel the emotions taking a toll on you. You can definitely feel love and pain through your own emotions because this book is so realistic. The book gives a great message to readers, and tells them you don’t have to be perfect to have a wonderful life. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who loves romance, adventure, and a wonderful story line that will leave you in tears at the end.
My favorite thing about this book is that you can feel the emotions inside of you. This book is very descriptive and explains the love, tragedies, pain, and happiness many people go through. The book is so amazing and gives you a different perspective of life, and what it means to be alive.
