After hearing all the buzz on this one, short book, I started looking it over. Apparently it was sooooo saaad, and everyone whose ever read it has been reduced to tears, forever fangirling into a pilow. I didn't want to read it, in fear of exploding from pure awesomeness, but then decided to read the book before the movie came out so I could compare. At first the book seemed slow, sure Hazel was a very witty character with a very high education for such a small age (And an insainly large vocabulary) but her sentences seemed almost forced. As for the romance that was built between Augustus and herself, it was predictable and not sappy in the slightest. I know I am one to talk, I haven't written a book as of yet, but I plan to write one in my lifetime, and I hope it won't be as predictable as how this relationship went. (especially how it ended) Maybe I just wasn't too fond of the writing style or something, but I did not find this book very riveting. Somehow the expectations I had for the book were set way to high (As high as the Moon), but I cannot be blamed for having such high standards after hearing everyone's head over heals love for this one book. I am not, however, giving up on John Green as of yet. Everyone says he is a good author, and he does have many other books that I will be looking into. Hopefully I will find one that I love as much as everyone else loved The Fault in Our Stars, so I will be keeping an open mind.
