THE FAULT IN OUR STARS
Have you ever read a book you had difficulty trying to tell other people
about, because you feel that your words are inadequate to describe what
the book meant to you, and you're afraid that your attempt might
diminish its meaning, and afraid you would not be understood? "The Fault
in Our Stars" is such a book. To say that it is about a girl with
cancer who falls in love with a boy who also has cancer, and their
experience living with cancer, is a simplification; It cannot convey the
depths of a life aware of its nearing death, and its impact not only on
the way that life is lived but also its impact on the lives around it.
would recommend this book not only to people who have cancer or people
who know people who have cancer, but also people who have a long-term
illness and those who know them, and people who have had experience with
death, which is all of us.
