“This book did not live up to the hype. Now before you kill me, hear me out.
If I'd have picked up this book when I was 16 I would have totally gushed and aw'ed and eaten all that romantic/angsty shit up. But alas, I'm 21 years old and this is the first young adult book I've read in a while. Of course, John Green is an amazing writer and the story deeply affected the way I view cancer and mortality(and immortality...), but after just finishing two breath-taking books by Hosseini & Brown, I was left disappointed by all the teenage cliches.
To sum up, TFioS was a compelling book and a good read, it just came out four years too late for me.”
