“I fell in love the way you fall asleep: slowly, then all at once.”
Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel’s story is about to be completely rewritten.
Once in a while you encounter a novel that makes you laugh or cry, or like in this case you do both. It has been a while since the last time I was utterly moved to tears while reading but this book reminded me exactly how that felt.
It is witty, funny, lovely and sad. I want to go to the length of saying that it is the perfect mix of emotions neatly packed between covers.
The story of Hazel and Augustus took me on a rare ride of joy and sadness. This novel was of that kind that I struggled to put down. An easy read about a heavy subject.
I consider this one to me one of my new absolute favorites and I highly recommend it!
Thank you, John Green, for this amazing novel!
