Book Review: The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

I feel like everyone has read and loved this book, so I had to give it a try.  Here is my review of The Fault in Our Stars by John Green.

The Fault in Our Stars - John Green

The short version of this review: I don’t get it.  I think this is going to be a pretty unpopular opinion, but I just don’t get how people can be crazy about this book.  Now don’t get me wrong, I think it’s well written.  It’s easy to get through and well thought out.  I just didn’t enjoy the story.

I guess it was just not easy to relate to.  I would guess most can’t relate to the horrible aspects of cancer, but even just the way the characters were interested in the Dutch story…I just don’t get it.  I would be open to reading more by John Green (like I said…it’s a well written style) but will be more mindful of the synopsis before I pick anything else up.  I give this two out of five stars.
