If you want to make a girl (or maybe a boy) cry, give them this book. So I blame my boyfriend for making me cry even before lunchtime because he gave me this book.
I liked this book quite a lot. The characters were awesome. Smart, ironic and sarcastic teenagers having to deal with cancer and death, but mostly life.
It was interesting, since the main characters were smarter than average.
There wasn’t much going on in the book (except having cancer), although Hazel and Augustus (two main characters) did spend some time in Amsterdam, mostly it took place in the US.
It was sad. The two last chapters were the saddest, I caught myself thinking that it would be quite awful to read those final chapters over a long time, just a few pages at a time, because then you’d be crying every day for quite some time…
Otherwise, if you look beyond the sad parts and the inevitable ending, it was great.
