'The Fault in Our Stars' Review
Between school, my internship, being an RA, and my part-time job, I don’t have much time to sit down and enjoy a good book. I love to read, but (as you can imagine) any free time I have is spent sleeping or hanging out with my friends.
However, one of my favorite novels, The Fault in Our Stars by John Green is going to the big screen this June and the trailer was released this week.
The story follows Hazel, a sixteen-year-old lung cancer patient who is forced to attend group therapy sessions by her parents. At one session, she meets Augustus, a seventeen-year-old boy whose osteosarcoma is in remission.
Hazel and Augustus will take you on an unforgettable journey of love, heartache, and happiness as they struggle with their own limitations and faults. (I won't give away too much of the plot, so go read the book if you haven't!)
When novels are made into movies, many fans become apprehensive because of the creative liberties directors and writers take with the original content. However, with The Fault in Our Stars, John Green was on set for much of the film and has attested that the film will do Hazel and Gus’ story justice.
I, for one, am very excited for this movie. The casting is spot-on and (from the looks of the trailer and according to John Green) they used a lot of the book's original content.
The Fault in Our Stars is more than just a teenage love story or a story about children with cancer – it’s a humorous and poignant celebration of life.
