Call me boring and old fashioned, but, I read classic American novels, this book was so bad and corny. How dare they make cancer a "romantic" and "okay" thing? That's terrible. Trust me, I read it. There is a girl named Gabby which her locker is filled with papers that say The Fault In Our Stars. I read real American literature. Moby Dick. Great Expectations. A Christmas Carol. The Great Gatsby. Tom Sawyer. Watership Down. Huckleberry Finn.
Those old things I mentioned? That is how a book is supposed to be written. Not this excuse for a book.
I know that people have different tastes, but still. You can like this book. I can like my books. It's just a book so chillax...
I love The Crucible! Yeah, people say to me that I should stop reading Moby Dick because I'm currently reading it now and finishing it. They say to read modern books. I like modern books and all but I read what I want to. Moby Dick is by far a good read for me. Thank you for understanding
I have to agree. Surprisingly, I am a 14 year old girl. Not boasting just saying that A LOT of girls my age are obsessed with a book about two dying people who just met, make out with one another and one of them dies. Most of John Green's books are like journal entries except with really tough words. They bore me, literally. That is certainly not how cancer patients act.
The book has potential, but John Green should have really studied cancer patients and their behaviour daily life, social life and etc. before writing. He also should have studied how 21st century teenagers talked.
Thanks for this! I read part of the book and despite of having very good critics i find it incredibly corny to my taste. Also I disliked the excessively romantic and unrealistic way that he presented the characters (specially August). Besides I kind of hate that the author or his fan base presented the book like if it was the most innovating and inspiring sick lit novel of all the time. And although I think that he had very good intentions while writing his book I didn't like the final result of it.
I agree.It's overrated and stupid to make cancer a romantic thing.I have cancer and it's horrible.Everybody told me to read the book and watch the movie when I was diagnosed and I hated it.I didn't show the living hell you have to go trough every day.( and sorry for my bad english,it's not my first language)
Hate to break it to ya, teenage girls, but you are NOT gonna fall in love with the boy of your dreams if you get diagnosed with Cancer. In fact, if you have Cancer, the last months of your life will be a living hell.
