My daughter has asked to read this book for a while (apparently ALL her friends have read it) but I’ve put it off telling her to wait until she was a little older. We sat down a while ago and talked about the content (language, sex, etc.) and she decided she would wait a while before reading it.

I caved and finally read this book because the movie was coming out and I try to always read the book before watching a movie. ?And my daughter had asked again and decided she really wanted to read the book. ?I wanted to preview it first so we could discuss if needs be. After finishing?I did let her read this book (she’s 14) but still feel it is a little old for her and has a little more content than what I am comfortable with her reading.

The Fault in Our Stars is a really good book and I totally get why it is so popular. ?I loved Hazel and Gus. Such a perfect pairing. There’s not much that I can add to the thousand of reviews out there other than to say I don’t regret finally reading this one. ?It is well done.

4 stars

  1. Hmm, my little sister picked it up and read it herself without us knowing! And she is only 12 >.> But she is quite mature as well and she loved it, so I think it was okay. I was also pretty young when I started reading these kind of books, mostly because I didn’t tell my mother about them ??

    I thought it was a good book but I just wished the characters were a bit more realistic. You don’t really get teenagers walking around with a cigarette between their teeth just for a metaphor these days, right? I still liked it though. Lukewarm about it.
