John Green has really reached the top with his successful novel "The fault in our stars" and understandably so.

The book throws you into the life of a cancer patient named Hazel after she meets a handsome young amputee named Augustus. This story is fairly predictable but still very enjoyable as the author finds ways to involve you in the story.

Inspiring and heartbreaking, The Fault in Our Stars is a MUST READ for any teenager with a passion for books.

The Fault in Our Stars is the latest book by John Green who has inspired many people with his other books. This story revolves around the life of Hazel Grace who is fighting cancer, although Hazel's perspective is that she is dealing with cancer a side effect of death. Hazel's life changes when she meets Augustus Waters at a childrens cancer support group. The two instantly connect and go through the ups and downs of cancer, a side effect of death. I loved this book, once I started reading it was so hard to put down, because there are so many plot twists that continue to keep you hooked. John Green has written this so well that you feel every emotion that Hazel and Gus feel if they cry you cry if they laugh you laugh, that is how easy it is to connect to the characters. Although, this book is very realistic so if you like more fantasy and imaginative books this one might not be for you; but there is nothing wrong in trying it out you just might like it. This book is not long so you will easily be able to finish it. This book is not only tears you will find yourself laughing a lot and crying a lot as well. Also this book has no specific age group, The Fault in Our Stars is okay for teenagers all the way to adults. The Fault in Our Stars is a definite one to read for all ages.

Such a good book, felt like crying at the end. A must read for anyone who hasn't already read it."

This was a good story!

I've heard it referred to as the "Love Story" of the present generation and that is exactly what it its. Entertaining and sweet but a little saccharin.

Some people say it's unrealistic, some say its incredibly beautiful and moving.

To me, I'm with the group of incredibly beautiful and moving. I think that the people that say it is unrealistic just don't know people like the characters in the book, when in fact they DO exist.

Review for the fault in our stars- hailey caton

The fault in our stars is a sad cancer story and an excellent love story but it is not any ordinary cancer book. In the Fault in our stars we follow Hazel Grace Lancaster and Augustus waters on an exciting journey of their love. Augustus is in love with hazel but hazel says she is a grenade and doesn’t want to get too close to Augustus. What will happen when Hazel finally falls for Augustus and one of them has bad news?
I thought this was a great book because it tells a really good story that is hard for me to categorize in any type of book genre. The Fault in Our stars maybe a cancer book but it is not an ordinary cancer book its an extraordinary cancer book with a great tale of love and an exciting mini adventure packed in one book and told in about 526 pages.

This is a very good book. A little bit of a twist on a teen love story. Watch out for the sexual references, cursing and the sexual scenes. Otherwise very well written.

This is a magnificent love story about two teens with cancer.
It is all about how Hazel Grace Lancaster and Augustus Waters spend their time together as they fall in love.
Through ups and downs and terrifying trips to the ER they are hopefuls.
It shows that just because you have cancer, doesn't mean you are a useless game piece on the board of life.
This story will captivate you from beginning to end, as you experience the roller coaster ride that is their lives.
It is a must read for all.
