There were plenty of wistful sighs as I sat on the bench – THE BENCH! – where Hazel Grace & Augustus Waters profess their undying love.
(Hint: the bench is located at Leidsegracht 2 in the Canal District.)
The Fault in Our Stars is a spectacular book which deals with a tender subject in an honest and captivating way. The witty dialogue was realistic, beautiful and more often than not, perfectly hilarious. The imperfect characters made me fall in love with the story even more so. John Green is a phenomenal writer and he writes with an honest, sincere voice and doesn’t sugarcoat what people with medical conditions actually have to go through. His writing is raw and unflinching. The Fault in Our Stars broke my heart, it melted it and it taught me to be thankful for my life and my health, including that of my family and friends.
One of my all-time favorites and a book that everyone should read. And Augustus? You did leave a mark in this world.
