The Fault in Our Stars is a book to be read by all but it is neither self-help, motivational, cheesy, nor chick-flick, but has a very cute romantic story revolving around death. And I will say that after very long, I finally found a book which moved me to tears. Oh did I give away the crux or the summary? Just relax, there are no spoilers ahead in this book review post.
After reading a slew of thrillers and few badly written stories in between, this was one of the few books I completed within 24 hours time-frame and of course, the first this year (aside, it helped that this was an extended weekend, but shhh…).
John Green has put together everything in this book that makes the recipe for popularity without being callous. The book is hugely popular and has ratings/reviews given by 26.5 lakhs people on goodreads (at the time of me selecting this book). Not that I am a sucker for popular or award winning ones, however, this kind of tugged my heartstrings. The book made me smile and laugh and made me teary-eyed too, all you know in an interval of 12 hours, that made my hubby wonder if he has married a crazy one. Just kidding! The book simply states the fact that life does not stop just because another is no more in one’s life or cannot stay, but it should not stop one to love life for the time being. In short, this book is one helluva ride, that you as a reader should not miss!
Recommended for all to find positiveness when you think you have hit rock-bottom.
