Book Review # 1:The Fault In Our Stars

Hi bookaholics,this is Asmita here. This is my first review on this blog! So I wanted it to be about a book which is close to my heart,certainly that happens to be none other than "The Fault In Our Stars" by John Green.

Author: John Green
Genre: Young Adult,Drama

Summary: 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. (From Goodreads)

My thoughts on the book: Fault In Our Stars is a book that will make you laugh and cry at the same time. You will be forced to think about some  important and serious things like death,cancer... Each character is well written, you can relate to them in one way or other. Hazel,the protagonist is just like any other girl at her age but being diagnosed with cancer changes her life quite a lot. Hazel's mom who is just really worried about her daughter, decides to send her to a cancer kid support group. At first Hazel does not like the idea at all but eventually when Augustus Waters or Gus crosses her path everything seems so magical. Gus is a real charmer and has a great sense of humor ...does not only charm Hazel but the you too.  FTIOS is quite centered around Imperial Affection,the book which  Hazel just can't stop raving about  because she relates to the story a lot. The author Peter Van Houten had left the Imperial Affection incomplete and Hazel desperately wants to seek the answers about the ending, so she and Gus embark on a journey to Amsterdam to meet the author. Peter Van Houten is a character whom all the tfios readers will will hate. The story in Amsterdam can be described as a  dark cloud with silver lining.  

The ending is quite  heart-breaking......... I totally reccommend it  to anyone who would like a book filled with drama,love,humor and tragedy.  
The plot is well paced and engaging,tfios will have a big lasting impact. I would rate it 4 stars.

Bye Bookaholics :)
