The Fault in Our Stars is a beautiful book. One of the best I've ever read. It changed my life in a way I cannot even begin to explain. This book made me sob, cry, and laugh all at the same time. It's an amazing thing when an author can make you feel so deeply for the characters. John Green made me feel so many emotions at once. He's a brilliant man. I love all of his books. He's a fantastic writer. I hope to meet him one day; I want to I tell him how much his books have changed my life.

My girlfriend told me this was her favorite book, as an effort to become closer with her I read it thinking it would give me a topic to talk to her about, just something else she could share about. Little did I realize this book would change my life. Reading this made me realize life is too short to worry about when my relationship with her would end, I Love this girl and I'm not going to hold back in fear. We have a chance, it's a tiny chance but we have a chance and she is absolutely worth giving it a try

This book changed my life. I'm unable to muster a proper review as I'm currently flustered with a thousand of unwelcomed emotions. The only criticism I have is in that the story ends. Weak hearted persons, do not read. This book has a spot reserved in my heart for eternity. I cannot with a clear conscious read anything ever again. Mr. Green ruined all other books for me. Ugh. I will go attempt to hump a wall now and jump instead. Perfection.
