I just finished it.
Emotions are all swirly now.
I'm glad I had today off so I could go get it and just marathon read it... took me about 5-6 hours.
Has anyone finished? thoughts?
I feel like I just ran a marathon. By that, I mean that was the hardest I've cried from a book since Love Story.
CRY ALL THE TEARS.
Unfortunately, none of my friends have read it... or even really know about it. SO I'M DYING to talk about it but none of them understand.
Anyways, my mind is currently filled with Hazel and Augustus. But I can't think about it too much... because then I just want to cry again, and like I said, I've just run an emotional marathon and I am quite tired.
I finished it a few days ago, and I cried. Almost as hard as I cried when I finished reading Delirium by Lauren Oliver. The book was excellent, and I think it is the kind of book that you can read over and over again and it won't get boring. This is definitely a book that I will not let out of my possession for a very long time.
Hey, I don't know if this is legitimate, but I wanted to share it here!
This book absolutely wrecked me.. And I loved it all the more for it. It says something about good writing when all you want to do is stay with the characters just a tiny bit longer after the book ends. And I've never cried as hard during a book as I did with this one. Hell, I don't even cry reading books full stop. But the last few pages just had me outright sobbing.
Just finished the book this afternoon. There were definitely tears. I usually don't like to make these judgement calls until it's had a chance to sink in, but I think this might be one of, if not my number one, favourite books. It's just so beautiful in the way it makes you think death. And not just the deaths of those around us, but also our own deaths, and the deaths of people we don't even know, and of people who died before we were even born. The book isn't about a girl with cancer and her one-legged boyfriend. It's about how we think about death, and also how we DON'T think about it.
I finished it the other day, and not long after did my Show Choir director decide that we are to sing "Once Upon a Time" from the musical All American for contest. And literally every time I sing it, I have to cry about fictional characters that I've fallen in love with. Look it up if you haven't heard it.
I just finished it for the second time last night and it affected me, possibly, even more this time than last time. As with most of John Green's novels, it changed my view on life, on death, on love, and the choices you have in all the aformentioned matters. It made me realize that love when you're young is possibly the purest, strongest form of love there is.
I'm possibly rambling. I just loved it a lot.
TFIOS is the best book I ever read. It is NOT a cancer book. It's a book I believe all teenagers should read. It's written beautifully. Loved it.
The Fault in Our Stars...oh geez. Without adequate words to describe it. Upon reading it, my English teacher believes that our class should read it because it talks so much about what we're studying right now (lots of poems we've studied too). I completely agree and I wish it was possible but I know it isn't (at least not this year).
This book ...it's just so awesome. Aargh, it's something you just cant stop loving. I try not to force novels down other people's throats..but this one is definitely an exception. Everyone NEEDS to read this book..it should be like...a requirement to continue breathing or something :P
All I have to say is I'm glad John gave me a reason to cry. Literally spent the entire last end of the book crying and feeling that sweet ache of sorrow. It sounds all "Emo-ey" but sometimes crying is just a really nice thing to do. All I have to say really, it was a wonderful book that made me stop and wonder how this man got me to cry over people I've only known for a combined total of 10 hours. It honestly made me feel good to be human and to be able to love complete strangers.
I finished the book about a month or so ago after one of my friends(A fellow John Green finatic) reccomended it to me. That book has definetly stuck with me, and is now one of my favorites. I can say that a book has never made me think about my life as much as that book had. This book had the ability to make me sob and then laugh like the flick of a switch. I almost think of this book to be my own AIA. I constantly find myself what happens to Hazel after this book.
This book was amazing. Even after you finish it, you can't stop thinking about it. I wish Augustus hadn't died, though.
