Book Review: The Fault in our Stars John Green

I enjoyed this book. It describes the love affair between two teen cancer patients who meet at a therapy group. Stated like this the book sounds horrendous but it is much more enjoyable than it sounds. It is funny, irreverent, not at all mushy while still dealing with the big questions about life and death that dying of cancer will throw up for you. The star crossed lovers head over to Amsterdam to meet the heroine’s favourite writer. He turns out to be a cynical alcoholic. Back in the US there is a plot twist which will make you cry and the author is almost redeemed. Young adult romance might sound icky but actually it was a good read and deep enough to keep my interest. Recommended.
