The Fault in Our Stars is considered a Neo classic.It has been loved by many but has also been criticized by some.

Here are some of my thoughts on what I think about the piece.The story starts out very normally narrating the inner thoughts of a regular teenager.Only,she is not a regular teenager.She has cancer.So from her casual monologue we get that the book will not bullshit you about kids with cancer.It starts off showing the true purpose of the book-not getting melodramatic about the sufferings of life. 430 more words
