The novel The Fault In Our Stars is a Romantic Tragedy .The novel talks about the most unfortunate but touching love story of two cancer patients, Hazel Grace Lancaster and Augustus Waters known as Gus. Their story starts in the cancer support group. Grace suffers from lung cancer, always cares a portable oxygen tank to breathe adequately and claims not to be a typical teenager. Gus who was a brilliant basket ball player is now suffering from osteosarcoma and has lost his right leg but still manages to be a funny and romantic guy.
The book tells us how in the most remote and painful times of one’s life, happiness can always be found by the most unexpected person. Gus loved Grace till the end for the person she was, accepting all her flaws, believing in her even when she didn’t.
I feel the book was very touching and brilliantly written. This book is written for young adults. Maybe this book is like any other cancer book but, this one truly pulled me towards it. It has little humor , a little romance and a little of everything .The other main reason why I would recommend others to read this book is because it talks about how a cancer patient views the world ,as it is completely different from how we assume it to be . And if you’re a young adult, I would definitely recommend you to read it as it seems like it’s written for the young crowd.
