The Fault in Our Stars- John Green

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.

Am I the only one that found this book incredibly predictable?

Yes, yes it was great and heartbreaking and everything but I was expecting more. I guess you do have to take into account that it's evidently a 'young adult' book; that will at least account for part of the predictability of the book.

Despite this it was good, not one of my favorites, but it wasn't a waste of time to read it.

I read it after my sister had read it when we were on holiday in Berlin. I was a intrigued by it; when we had been there the book had followed my sister around everywhere to such an extent that you could hardly see her face. And then on top of that she seemed to be eating the tissues they were going down so fast. I think it's safe to say that she found it pretty heartbreaking. I will give it that; John Green took my heart, tore it to pieces and threw it in the bin. Thanks for that John Green.

I did enjoy the read, and I'm certainly pleased I read it but I'm still not sure about it. I'm just hoping that the film does it justice
