Reviewing The Fault in Our Stars

Updated on February 15, 2016

The Plot

I remember first picking up the book and thinking " Is this going to be worth it?"

I finished it in two days and wanted to read it all over again.

If you do not know the book, The Fault in Our Stars, is based around two characters - Hazel Grace Lancaster and Augustus Waters. They meet at a support group for cancer patients where Augustus Waters cannot take his eyes off of Hazel Grace.

Hazel Grace has thyroid cancer which has spread to her lungs while Augustus Waters has osteosarcoma causing him to loose his leg. The two agree to read eachothers favourite books, The Price of Dawn and A Imperial Affliction.

After reading the books they both feel the same about A imperial affliction and that seems to be the Hot Topic for the time being in their relationship however a week later Augustus tell Hazel he has tracked down the Authors assistant, Lidewij and they persuade her through email to let them meet Peter Van Houten( the author).

Augustus and Hazel go to Amsterdam to meet Peter Van Houten only to find out he refuses to give them answers. When they leave Peter Van Houtens house Augustus declares his love for Hazel but a few days later, he tell her that he is going to die.

When they get back to their hometown Augustus grows very sick and ask Hazel and their best friend to read their eulogies at a pre funeral Augustus wanted to attend. Augustus died 8 days later in hospital.

When the real funeral comes Hazel is astonished to see Peter Van Houten has attended. He tells Hazel that Augustus and him stayed in touch and that Augustus demanded that Van Houten to make up for the trip. So Peter tell Hazel the fate of Anna's mother ( a character in the book) but Hazel isn't intrested.

A few days later Hazel finds out that Augustus was writing her a sequel to An Imperial Affliction and she looks frantically for it .

In the end she finds out thay they were sent to Peter Van Houten so that he could read them and make the perfect eulogy for Hazel. The novel concludes with Hazel reading what Augustus had written.He says getting hurt in this world is inevitable, but we do get to choose who we allow to hurt us, and that he his happy with his choice. The last words are about Hazel agreeing with what he wrote

The meaning of the book

We have a problem in this world. It is the truth. This book goes beyond the truth and into the depth of the reasons why. There is no beating around the bush, just how it is and sometimes why.

This is why I give the book a 10/10 and the film a 10/10.

5 stars for Fault in Ours Stars
