But then, like most other people who went on to read John Green’s best book ever, I fell in love with it.
I fell in love with it the way you fall asleep. Slowly, and then all at once.
I was blown away by Green’s ability to tell this story in such a heartfelt way – apparently it took him four years to write! That is a loooooong time, but you can tell the research, the hours that went into it. To this day The Fault in our Stars is one of my favourites… pure literary gold. It makes you think, feel, laugh and sob like a baby. The dialogue is spectacular and I can only dream of being able to touch people someday with my stories, the way he can. Huge fan. The hugest!
It will be worth it.
Watch the trailer! God, even the trailer makes me need a tissue…
