Book Experience:

I have come across more about this book “The Fault in Our Stars” especially Bollywood movie named “Dil Bechara”. I have read for the first time from the author “John Green”. I perceived that the author was inspired for this book by Esther Earl, who died at the age of 16 year due to Thyroid cancer. Based on this novel around two years later an American romantic drama film came.

“The Fault in Our Stars” is spoken by a character named Hazel Grace Lancaster. I have found her character strongest who made fully different choices to live life with her Thyroid cancer in her adolescent years. The book is based on bravery, friendship. Hazel got few friends along with great love of life from the support group, her mother is believed that the support group can help her to feel little relief from the side effects of her sickness. The Genie Foundation introduced a real one NPO named “Make-A-Wish”. The Genie helped to fulfil Hazel’s wish to enquire about the book at Amsterdam, Netherlands. I got lost between their museum visit. At chapter twenty one, the author precisely elaborated the situation to build an emotional connection. I didn’t realise her pain and fight against cancer until she mentioned about ER, usually asking her to rate her pain on a scale of 1 to 10. 

I guess this book can help people to find possibilities of living in any difficulties by considering Hazel’s choice to accept death in a beautiful way.

    I’ve heard great things about this book! I’ve read a few books by John Green, but not this one. My favorite is looking for Alaska. Thanks for the review!

    Although this book sounds like a beautiful read, I’m not a fan of books where a young person passes away. This is partly due to the pandemic . Thanks for sharing.

      Certainly, it’s beautiful to read. However, I can feel your point.
