CRITICAL ACCLAIM FOR THE FAULT IN OUR STARS:
“Damn near genius . . . The Fault in Our Stars is a love story, one of the most genuine and moving ones in recent American fiction, but it’s also an existential tragedy of tremendous intelligence and courage and sadness.” —Lev Grossman, TIME Magazine
“This is a book that breaks your heart—not by wearing it down, but by making it bigger until it bursts.”
“A story about two incandescent kids who will live a long time in the minds of the readers who come to know them.”
“Remarkable . . . A pitch-perfect, elegiac comedy.”
“A smarter, edgier Love Story for the Net Generation.”
“Because we all need to feel first love again. . . . Sixteen-year-old Hazel faces terminal cancer with humor and pluck. But it isn’t until she meets Augustus in a support group that she understands how to love or live fully.”
—Oprah.com, a Best Book selection and one of “5 Books Every Woman Needs to Read Before Her Next Birthday”
“[Green’s] voice is so compulsively readable that it defies categorization. You will be thankful for the little infinity you spend inside this book.”
“Hilarious and heartbreaking . . . reminds you that sometimes when life feels like it’s ending, it’s actually just beginning.”
“John Green deftly mixes the profound and the quotidian in this tough, touching valentine to the human spirit.”
—The Washington Post
“[Green] shows us true love—two teenagers helping and accepting each other through the most humiliating physical and emotional ordeals—and it is far more romantic than any sunset on the beach.”
—New York Times Book Review
“In its every aspect, this novel is a triumph.”
—Booklist, starred review
“You know, even as you begin the tale of their young romance, that the end will be 100 kinds of awful, not so much a vale as a brutal canyon of tears. . . . Green’s story of lovers who aren’t so much star-crossed as star-cursed leans on literature’s most durable assets: finely wrought language, beautifully drawn characters and a distinctive voice.”
—Frank Bruni, The New York Times
“A novel of life and death and the people caught in between, The Fault in Our Stars is John Green at his best. You laugh, you cry, and then you come back for more.”
—Markus Zusak, bestselling and Printz Honor–winning author of The Book Thief
“The Fault in Our Stars takes a spin on universal themes—Will I be loved? Will I be remembered? Will I leave a mark on this world?—by dramatically raising the stakes for the characters who are asking.”
—Jodi Picoult, bestselling author of My Sister’s Keeper and Sing You Home
“John Green is one of the best writers alive.”
—E. Lockhart, National Book Award Finalist and Printz Honor–winning author of The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks and We Were Liars

I need not to write about the content as all alteady know how good this book abd John Green is.
Coming to the physical condition...
It looks pretty good. I've been reading lots of negative comments about the page quality but believe me its totally fine and nothing to be bi*ched about.
And yeah fonts are small but any hjman with two eyes can read and understand them.
I couldn't have ever imagined I would cry reading a book. Maybe I'm not such an avid reader but still this book hit the soft spot. It showed me the limit of loneliness. The moment I ended it I was crying and the whole day. Maybe I related myself too much to it but still when Augustus discloses Hazel about his growing cancer, I was completely broken. They were living the most beautiful time of their lives and now suddenly The End. I cant even imagine the condition of hazel after him died. The person you used to share everything, the person who would be understanding you better than any other is now not here. I couldn't even read after when she says she called him again but there was no one to pick it up this time. That was so brutal.
This is the most heartbreaking novel I've read.
I may seem like overexaggareting things but this is my opinion.
You and I are so much blessed enough that we are able to seek the will of this beloved world, we can be at the top of our imagination. We can pursue our dreams because physically our body supports us at every stage in our life. Our physical appearance do show us the many ways in life that we are able to tread over it.
We are lucky enough that we own a life that is capable of doing such great things that we can't even imagine. However, we do lack will power that seperates ourselves from the life we wish to conquer.
Meanwhile, this book talk about a sixteen year old girl named Hazel Grace Lancaster who is diagnosed by a thyroid cancer when she was thirteen, and later made her acquaintance with a seventeen year old boy Augustus Waters and fall in love with him.
The story was so beautifully written that you feel the deep sense of the condition they live under.
This book will make you emotional, laugh and also will put your mind in suspense as you will read over, hence can give you curiosity to know what will happen in upcoming pages.
A love story that has deep meaning of life that walk through with great physical and mental pain.
(Giving it four out of five because as I'm saving my five for an another epic hardback that will make her acquaintance with me pretty soon)
I don't know why but this book makes me a bit sad... It's a good book to read... Something different not so intuitive...
Love is presented in a different way... The story is not like an another love story...
I would rate this book 4 out of 5, everything's fine but not the ending I didn't liked it much.
You can purchase it and read it, but one thing is special about the book. I want to read it again and again as if i missed something...
