The movie trailer for this novel was released last week and it has received positive reviews from fans across the globe. I read this novel early 2013 and I fell in love with the characters but with John Green as well. The Fault in Our Stars follows the life of Hazel, a stage 3 cancer patient who is forced to attend a support group where she meets Augustus Walters, a boy she eventually falls in love with. The story unfolds (spoiler alert) as the cancer develops in Hazel’s body just as she learns how to love. If you aren’t a reader, this novel is a slow start. Don’t give up on it so easily but I promise that it is worth it. If you are a crier, it will make you cry. If you aren’t a crier, you will tear up. This novel [soon going to be a movie] taught me about gratitude. It encourages it’s audience to invest more time in the relationships you are part of. With Shailene Woodley playing Hazel in the movie, I expect nothing short of amazing work. Don’t believe me, check out the trailer below.
