The Fault In Our Stars – by John Green

28 06 2014

This is the first time in years and years that I’ve “binged” on a book. When I woke this morning I was on page 76. I’ve not had lunch yet and I’ve finished it, all 313 pages! I haven’t read that much in one go since Harry Potter as a teenager I reckon!

I know the film’s out at the moment and it’s a very current book (I bought it about 6 months ago but only just got round to reading it) so I don’t want to give away any spoilers. There’s so much I could say, but not without giving away major plot points.

I loved the characters, the humour, the location, the relationships, the realities – trying to keep this as vague as possible! It didn’t go down the path I expected it to at all in the end. All I can say is please read it!

Just a line from right near the end, but that doesn’t give anything away – I read it and thought how similar it is to the strapline of my blog in a way, and just how my head so often works:

“My thoughts are stars I can’t fathom into constellations”
