|my fave thing about this is you can see his accent.|
I had seen the trailer, I knew kind of what the story would be like. And I am a crier. Like, hallmark cards make me cry. So I knew this book would get to me. What I couldn't comprehend was how it got to me in other ways. I haven't read any of John Green's other books, never even heard of him before. This book used a lot of big words I didn't understand, I'm not half as smart as the dumbest character in this book. But seriously, this book was SO FREAKING WELL WRITTEN, I can't even.
It is sad, but of course a book about kids with cancer is going to be sad. But I laughed, I laughed so many times. This book was so well written! I normally keep my books to myself, sometimes telling KC how I feel about a book once I have finished - but this book, I kept interrupting his video game playing to read lines from the book.
I kind of suspected what was going to happen, so I wasn't shocked, but I still hoped for a magic turn around. I'm soppy like that. I still think it ended much better than this book, or this book. Hell, it ended better than a lot of books.
Something I will briefly touch on - lots of people on Amazon seem to be mad that the teenagers don't talk like teenagers, and like I said - they use lots of big words and seem way smarter than I will be at 50, let alone 16. But who gives a flying toot? Not me. I don't want to read about teenagers that talk like teenagers. I want something that opens my mind, my imagination, my dictionary.
It was honestly, seriously, a very well written good book. It has been so long since I have thoroughly enjoyed a book. I 100000% recommend this book, but buy a box a tissues first.
Seriously, go now. Please. Buy here. That is not an affiliate link. I really want you to read it.
