I guess I could sum the experience up best by stating that it is unlikely I will read another book by this author, and if I do it will be sometime in the future when I forget how utterly disappointing I found this book to be.

Believing she is depressed, her mother Frannie urges her to attend a weekly cancer patient to help her make friends with individuals who are going through the same thing. Hazel goes up and starts to talk about her love story with Gus before saying that there are infinite numbers between 1 and 0, and that there are countless infinities, and that she is thankful for their infinity. A while later, Gus shows up at Hazel's home with flowers, and then invites her on a picnic to a park featuring a giant skeleton playground called Funky Bones. And yes, all the hate above is a metaphor, a symbolic word for love. If you think that your opinion is the only opinion that exists on earth and that no one should dislike your favourite book, then I would suggest you to avoid this review. Nothing will get the ladies crying quicker than a kid dying of cancer.

The Fault in Our Stars is another beautifully written book by John Green. The waiter comes by with more champagne, and he says the dinner was all paid for by Van Houten. This is part of a project I am doing wherein I write mini reviews of books I read a long time ago. I have a history with pretentious people. They all have his quirkiness, his sense of humour; I was picturing several John Greens sat around having a conversation while I was reading.
You might find it unrealistic, because if there are many of us who see the life and its complexity like Hazel and Gus do, this world will be such a happy place.

Hazel and Gus seemed too mature for their age. But, the thing is… this book has a balanced atmosphere.
