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.
My Thoughts -
omg - THE SADDEST BOOK EVER.
So I bought this book when it first came out because I love John Green books. My daughter read it and loved it. I've read almost all of his books via audiobooks, but own them as well. I wanted to listen to this one. I listen to these at work; now imagine trying to listen to this while working. Right - that's why it took forever. I'd cry laugh and then bawl again.
Finally one day, I said to myself - I am finishing this book today. Und I did. (anyone get that?) I fucking cried so hard, I think I went a little crazy as a side effect. Holy hell is this a great book.Sobbing and bawling aside - GREAT job John Green!! I fall so in love with your characters, it hurts like hell when they hurt and even worse when they die. UGH..that's all I'm sayin'...
