When Our Stars Fall

"As he read, I fell in love the way you fall asleep: slowly, and then all at once."
     Goodreads subscribers must have had a valid reason for giving John Green's latest book, The Fault in Our Stars, a good 4.67 rating. And I may not be able to give justice to the book with mere words for a simple book review, but please bare with me.

The Fault in Our Stars (182/365)

     Hazel Grace has Stage IV thyroid cancer when she was 12, but a miracle happened when a drug shrunk the tumors in her lungs. She lives. For now. However, she's dependent to the oxygen tank connected to her. It was her company. It was her best friend. Without it, she would be nothing.

     Then she meets Augustus Waters, who is in remission, at a cancer kid support group. And just like all girl-and-boy stories, they fall in love with each other. A cancer patient for a cancer patient. Who would disagree that they aren't perfect for each other? Augustus Waters, who's gorgeous and in love with Hazel Grace, wants to spend his one, last wish with the latter, and the author of An Imperial Affliction--a book Hazel loves, which she shared with Gus. Fast forward the events, and Gus dies. Simple as that, yet complicated in a way. Hazel thinks she is the one to go first but it was Gus. 
     "He wasn't perfect or anything. He wasn't your fairytale Prince Charming or whatever. He tried to be like that sometimes, but I like him best when that stuff fell away."
     Since the book's still new, and perhaps a lot of John Green (and non John Green, if any) fans haven't read it, I'll leave you to judge the book yourselves. But if you're asking me, it's beautiful, and heartbreaking, and sad--all at the same time. I mean, it's a John Green novel.

Books are forever.
