My Opinion :

I really liked this book because even if the subject might seem sad, the story is full of happiness and humor. It’s really well written and the story is so attractive that I just couldn’t stop reading it, in two days I had finish the book. This book make you realize how lucky you are and even if you feel sad or something bad is happening to you it make you see that your life could be worst.

This book has been adapted in movie in August 2014 by Josh Boone, Hazel Grace is played by Shailene Woodley and Augustus Waters is played by Ansel Elgort. John Green passed a lot of times on the tournage
