Hello book lovers, your friend Sara here! I love how you are all pouring in your write ups on your favourite books.
Today is World Cancer Day. As we send across our best wishes to those suffering from cancer and their families, here’s a book review of ‘The fault in our stars’ a book about a young cancer patient sent to us by 12 year old Mehr Kapoor from Kolkata.
Mehr goes to La Martiniere For Girls and is a student of Word Munchers.
Since we were in quarantine and I didn’t have many options to read from, I started rummaging through my mom’s old book collection and asked her if there was anything I could read from there.
She gave me a few options from which I chose a book called ‘The fault in our stars’ which I had already heard about before.
Hazel, who is narrating the book, is a 16-year-old teen suffering from stage 4 thyroid cancer, the book is about her life after she meets Augustus Waters a teen suffering from osteosarcoma. The book follows their lives as they try to make the most of their ill-health and manage to find happiness in little things.
The book is an international bestseller and has also been adapted into Hollywood and Bollywood movies.
The Hollywood version of the movie features Shailene Woodley, Ansel Elgort and Nat Wolff. The Hindi version features Sushant Singh Rajput, Sanjana Sanghi and Saswata Chatterjee
The quote “Finishing a good book is like losing a friend,” is apt for this book.
If you are planning to read this book, be ready for tears, especially near the end.
Recommended Age : 13+
I would rate this book 4/5
