I decided to let the hype get to me and read one of the most popular summer book the fault in our stars. I wanted to read this before I went to see it in the cinema and I have still not been to see it and I might wait ch now till it comes on dvd.
Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel’s story is about to be completely rewritten.
To be honest, I might not have read this book if it wasn’t for the amount of praise it gets everybody at uni was speaking about this book before I finished,.So when I finally picked this up I was expecting to love it as much as everyone else, cry as much as everyone else I know people who have been in tears for up to an hour after they had finished reading it and also cried during it.
Me on the other hand had to keep trying to find what it was that everyone loved about it I kept thinking it was very simular to other books that are cancer books.It’s sad, yes, but what do you expect from a cancer book? I didn’t cry at all while reading this and I am not scared to cry at a book if I need to. TFiOS wasn’t anything like I expected, and not in a positive way. I didn’t find anything special about this book; it’s like any other one which doesn’t have as much of a hype.
I’m not saying TFiOS is horrible and you shouldn’t read it you might enjoy it but I am saying that you maybe disappointed because it might not live up to the hype in your eyes as well. This could be due to the fact that I seem to read more books than them who just decided to read a book when there is a huge hype about it.
What did you think about this book?
