Unprecedented EIGHT starred reviews

Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel's story is about to be completely rewritten.

Insightful, bold, irreverent, and raw, The Fault in Our Stars is award-winning-author John Green's most ambitious and heartbreaking work yet, brilliantly exploring the funny, thrilling, and tragic business of being alive and in love.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

This heart-wrenchingly beautiful novel about a teenage girl and boy who meet at a cancer support center has already won emotional accolades from readers and reviewers.

Publishers Weekly
If there's a knock on John Green (and it's more of a light tap considering he's been recognized twice by the Printz committee) it's that he keeps writing the same book: nerdy guy in unrequited love with impossibly gorgeous girl, add road trip. His fourth novel departs from that successful formula to even greater success: this is his best work yet. Narrator Hazel Grace Lancaster, 16, is (miraculously) alive thanks to an experimental drug that is keeping her thyroid cancer in check. In an effort to get her to have a life (she withdrew from school at 13), her parents insist she attend a support group at a local church, which Hazel characterizes in an older-than-her-years voice as a "rotating cast of characters in various states of tumor-driven unwellness." Despite Hazel's reluctant presence, it's at the support group that she meets Augustus Waters, a former basketball player who has lost a leg to cancer. The connection is instant, and a (doomed) romance blossoms. There is a road trip—Augustus, whose greatest fear is not of death but that his life won't amount to anything, uses his "Genie Foundation" wish to take Hazel to Amsterdam to meet the author of her favorite book. Come to think of it, Augustus is pretty damn hot. So maybe there's not a new formula at work so much as a gender swap. But this iteration is smart, witty, profoundly sad, and full of questions worth asking, even those like "Why me?" that have no answer. Ages 14–up. Agent: Jodi Reamer, Writers House. (Jan.)
Natalie Standiford
…this is a love story, but it is also a book by John Green…and it is written in his signature tone, a blend of melancholy, sweet, philosophical and funny…He shows us true love—two teenagers helping and accepting each other through the most humiliating physical and emotional ordeals—and it is far more romantic than any sunset on the beach.
—The New York Times Book Review
Mary Quattlebaum
As he did with his Printz-winning Looking for Alaska, John Green deftly mixes the profound and the quotidian in this tough, touching valentine to the human spirit. Green neither romanticizes illness nor sentimentalizes loss but brings readers into the hearts and minds of two teens pondering life, death, love and the strange beauty of a universe that includes orange tulips, sweet-pea sorbet and an oxygen tank named Philip.
—The Washington Post
VOYA - Allison Hunter Hill
Hazel Grace is a sixteen-year-old cancer patient, caught up in the effort it takes to live in a body that everyone knows is running out of time. When she reluctantly agrees to return to her local teen cancer support group to satisfy her mother, the last thing she expects is an encounter with destiny. New to the group, Augustus Waters is handsome, bitingly sarcastic, and in remission. He is also immediately taken with Hazel, and what begins as a casual friendship soon escalates into a full romance. Through an impressive exchange of books and words, philosophies and metaphors, Hazel and Augustus tear apart what it means to be both star-crossed lovers and imminently mortal. Green's much-anticipated novel is breathtaking in its ability to alternate between iridescent humor and raw tragedy. Hazel and Augustus are both fully realized, complex characters that each defy what it means to be a cancer patient in a unique way. While Hazel fixates about how her death will eventually hurt her loved ones, Augustus obsesses about how he will be remembered; the two are drawn together by the justified anxiety they feel over endings. If The Fault in Our Stars has a fault, it is not that Green's writing is too complex for teens, as some suggest, but that at times the complexity of Green's voice overshadows the narrative. Purchase for small and large libraries alike, though several copies may be wise considering both Green's popularity, and the potential of this book to become a classic. Reviewer: Allison Hunter Hill
School Library Journal
Gr 9 Up—"It's not fair," complains 16-year-old Hazel from Indiana. "The world," says Gus, her new friend from her teen support group, "is not a wish-granting factory." Indeed, life is not fair; Hazel and Gus both have cancer, Hazel's terminal. Despite this, she has a burning obsession: to find out what happens to the characters after the end of her favorite novel. An Imperial Affliction by Dutch author Peter Van Houten is about a girl named Anna who has cancer, and it ends in mid-sentence (presumably to indicate a life cut short), a stylistic choice that Hazel appreciates but the ambiguity drives her crazy. Did the "Dutch Tulip Man" marry Anna's mom? What happened to Sisyphus the Hamster? Hazel asks her questions via email and Van Houten responds, claiming that he can only tell her the answers in person. When she was younger, Hazel used her wish-one granted to sick children from The Genie Foundation—by going to Disney World. Gus decides to use his to take Hazel to Amsterdam to meet the author. Like most things in life, the trip doesn't go exactly as anticipated. Van Houten is a disappointment, but Hazel, who has resisted loving Gus because she doesn't want to be the grenade that explodes in his life when she dies, finally allows herself to love. Once again Green offers a well-developed cast of characters capable of both reflective thought and hilarious dialogue. With his trademark humor, lovable parents, and exploration of big-time challenges, The Fault in Our Stars is an achingly beautiful story about life and loss.—Ragan O'Malley, Saint Ann's School, Brooklyn, NY
Kirkus Reviews
He's in remission from the osteosarcoma that took one of his legs. She's fighting the brown fluid in her lungs caused by tumors. Both know that their time is limited. Sparks fly when Hazel Grace Lancaster spies Augustus "Gus" Waters checking her out across the room in a group-therapy session for teens living with cancer. He's a gorgeous, confident, intelligent amputee who always loses video games because he tries to save everyone. She's smart, snarky and 16; she goes to community college and jokingly calls Peter Van Houten, the author of her favorite book, An Imperial Affliction, her only friend besides her parents. He asks her over, and they swap novels. He agrees to read the Van Houten and she agrees to read his--based on his favorite bloodbath-filled video game. The two become connected at the hip, and what follows is a smartly crafted intellectual explosion of a romance. From their trip to Amsterdam to meet the reclusive Van Houten to their hilariously flirty repartee, readers will swoon on nearly every page. Green's signature style shines: His carefully structured dialogue and razor-sharp characters brim with genuine intellect, humor and desire. He takes on Big Questions that might feel heavy handed in the words of any other author: What do oblivion and living mean? Then he deftly parries them with humor: "My nostalgia is so extreme that I am capable of missing a swing my butt never actually touched." Dog-earing of pages will no doubt ensue. Green seamlessly bridges the gap between the present and the existential, and readers will need more than one box of tissues to make it through Hazel and Gus' poignant journey. (Fiction. 15 & up)
The Barnes & Noble Review

At the end of the first chapter of The Fault in Our Stars, I was literally laughing out loud over a joke about the "incorrect use of literality," shared between two cancer kids — one terminal, one in remission — shortly after a scene in which the two bond over one's philosophical answer to the other's stated "fear of oblivion" and both learn that a third friend is about to lose a second eye to cancer.

Hazel Lancaster, sixteen, has incurable thyroid cancer, with an "impressive and long-settled colony" of cancer cells in her lungs, but to Augustus Waters — mahogany hair, "aggressively bad posture," and a slight limp from a prosthetic leg nicknamed Prosty — she looks like "a millennial Natalie Portman." But what really brings them together is a joke about their Support Group director's well-intentioned prayer in which he describes the cancer-ridden children as "literally in the heart of Jesus."

"I thought we were in a church basement," says Augustus. "But we are literally in the heart of Jesus."

"Someone should tell Jesus," says Hazel. "I mean, it's got to be dangerous, storing children with cancer in your heart."

Three years (and one near-death experience) removed from high school, Hazel knows she will die soon, and this certainty has shrunk her world to her three best friends: her two parents and Peter van Houten, the reclusive author of her favorite book, An Imperial Affliction. To do otherwise, she feels, is to become a human "grenade" — the fewer people who love her now, the fewer lives she will shatter when she inevitably goes. But Augustus has other ideas, and soon the two are on an international quest to Amsterdam — oxygen tank, Prosty, and parental chaperon in tow — to meet van Houten himself.

Hazel's beguiling voice is utterly believable as a thoughtful, prematurely somber teenager who borrows from Shakespeare, Eliot, Dickinson, Anne Frank, and the fictional van Houten in telling the story of a romance of "the young and irreparably broken." But it's the crackling humor between the two lovers that makes them most human. "You have a choice in this world," says Hazel, "about how to tell sad stories, and we made the funny choice." This book, already a bestseller, is every bit as good as its reputation and easily one of the best of this or any other year.

    Book Review: The Fault in Our Stars May 28, 2013 Title: The Faul

    Book Review: The Fault in Our Stars
    May 28, 2013
    Title: The Fault in Our Stars

    Author: John Green

    Genre: YA fiction

    Review: This brutally honest novel really throws life into perspective.  Hazel, the main character, is a teenage girl with cancer.  
    To her, life is pretty crummy at the moment and her mom is constantly nagging her to get a social life.  Hindered by her oxygen
     tanks and carts (her lungs suck at being lungs), Hazel often loses herself in books in her bedroom to escape reality.  That is,
    until she meets Augustus.

    Augustus is unlike anyone she has ever met.  He understands how she feels, being a cancer survivor himself.  
    He's witty, loves literature and quickly befriends Hazel.  Both Hazel and Augustus are characters you just want to
    connect with (okay, maybe not the whole having-cancer part, but you know what I mean).  Green truly brings his characters to life.  
    You grow fond of them.  You want to talk to them.  You want to meet them.  Okay...getting off track here...back to the review.

    As much as I loved the book, I have to admit that the theme was rather heavy if you think about it.  The fact is, everyone dies.  
    Death  is inevitable.  Also, reality can really hurt the soul too.  Augustus decides to spend his genie Foundation wish-gift on him and
     Hazel.  Thanks to the organization, they are able to travel to Europe and are given the chance to meet the elusive author of
    "An Imperial Affliction", Hazel's favorite book in the world. *****spolier alert*****  It turns out the author wasn't the man
    Hazel had painted him to be--he was just a grumpy, rude person who turned them away from the door.

    Having the book narrated from the point of view of a dying person (Hazel) is really eye-opening to me.  I mean, she doesn't
    treat the whole I'm-dying-at-such-a-young-age thing too seriously.  She uses sarcasm.  Actually, quite a bit of sarcasm and
    irony in her narration.  But there are also several scenes where you see the "serious" side of Hazel.  The part of Hazel
    where it shows that she's only just a teenage girl.  And it's during those scenes you just want to give her a hug simply be there for her.  
    Well, I guess Augustus already has the part taken care of.

    Favorite quotes:  "The world wasn't made for us. We were made for the world"

    Likes:
            *beautiful writing--John Green's eloquence is inimitable 
            *So many life lessons you can learn from this novel
            * a lot of unexpected twist and turns


    Dislikes:
                        ***spoiler alert****
                       * Augustus Waters, why do you have to die????

    I just finished reading this book today and I am still in tears.

    I just finished reading this book today and I am still in tears. It is one of the most beautifully tragic love stories I have read since Romeo and Juliet (only better!). John Green has a talent for writing with humor as well as grace. This book is no different. I love that just as I am getting to feel really sad about something Augustus or Hazel or their parents or even Isaac crop up and say something that just makes my gut hurt from laughing so much. Definitely a book that will be read again and again until the end of time.

    I'm not sure what book the 153 five star reviewers read, but it wasn't the same "The Fault in Our Stars" book I read! I thought this book was horrible! From page one I was disappointed. The characters were unbelievable from their speech patterns to their reactions to real world situations. Hazel was stiff and unbelievable. Agustus could have been a believable character but John Green ruined it by having him use the cigarette metaphor, etc. (Spoiler alert) His reaction in the airport was also totally out of character, as was Hazel's reaction when he admitted his reason for leaving her.

    I felt extremely disappointed while reading this book and have let everyone who will listen not to bother buying or reading this book. If you were wanting to show depth and emotion from the standpoint of two teens dying from cancer, John Green failed miserably. If he wanted to impress people with his use of $50 words (which the average teen or even college age person wouldn't use) then he succeeded ... only mildly. As for the moderator of the support group ... what the he**?? I don't know of any support group with a leader like him! Other than to have a reason/place for the two characters to meet ... I saw no worthwhile contribution of the moderator of the group OR the group itself in helping any character in the book. "Heart of Jesus"?? seriously? John Green needs to review the meaning in any religion as to how to truly use that metaphor in his writing.

    I truly felt that this book could have been written by someone who had no training in writing, nor any experience in death and dying ... especially from a fatal disease. All in All .... VERY DISAPPOINTING ... and if it were possible I'd give it a negative star review! I'm not even tempted to read any of his other books and will be donating (or burning) my copy of The Fault in Our Stars

    John Green's The Fault In Our Stars offers a a dramatic twist on

    John Green's The Fault In Our Stars offers a a dramatic twist on the classic teenage love story. Hazel and Augustus are two teens with cancer that meet at a support group, they share an instant connection right away.  Throughout the story, reader's are introduced to the struggles of cancer patients, but also are able to understand that these kids are human just like the rest of us.  At first you may make the assumption of a cancer book being so depressing, but the writing style is so witty and entertaining it actually will make you laugh out loud.  However, this book also gets very emotional at times.  I was hysterically crying by the end of the book because John Green is such a powerful writer.  He makes you feel as though you really know the characters personally. I was able to finish the book in just two days because I could not put it down, I was so emotionally attached to it.  After reading the book I almost felt lost, as if I just ended my friendships with Augustus and Hazel because the story was over; I just wanted to read it again right away so it wouldn't be over.  Everything in this book: the characters, the story, the words, they all have the power to be an inspiration. If you haven't read it, I strongly suggest to take the chance.

    After years of hearing about the amazing John Green, I decided it was time to see what all the rave was about. The Fault in Our Stars seemed to be one of the most popular, what with the rumors of an upcoming movie production. Now, I am a fifteen year old girl, so I mostly read young adult fiction. But this? This was complete and utter crap. Just another case of the wannabe hipsters getting excited about a book that isn't worth anyone's time. I know people with cancer, and they do not respond the way these characters did. They are dying, for crying out loud. When you're dying, you don't have time to be poetic and stick cigarettes in your mouth because it's a bold statement. Not to mention how utterly shallow the characters were. Honestly, watching paint dry would have been more interesting than reading this book. They were bland and lacked depth. There was nothing special about this story. Yes, they had cancer, but they were all so accepting of it that it wasn't even a real conflict in the story. And the "tragic ending" could be predicted within the first chapter. Seriously, DO NOT waste your time reading this. I was so excited, and I love John Green as a vlogger, but as a writer, he lacks any real skill. "Staccato bursts of humor?" Yeah right. It felt like it was written by a thirteen year old boy- with bland preteen humor included. This is the most overrated book I have ever read. The only reason I forced myself to finish it was because I spent so much money on it. THIS IS A HORRIBLE AND DISAPPOINTING BOOK.

    I think that John Green is a decent writer but can't come up with any good plots. All of his books (especially this one) had the stupidest and crazy plots I've ever seen. Also, most of this book's sales come from snotty white girls who want to be "hipsters." My ex-girlfriend made me read this and she didn't speak to me for a week because I said I hated it. All in all, this book is an insult to American literature.

    this book was extraordinary. I can't even begin to fathom why anyone would not fall in love with this book. I read Looking for Alaska just a couple weeks ago and finished the entire thing in one night thinking afterwards that there was no possible way his other books could surpass it but I decided to give Fault in Our Stars a try. I am so glad I did. This story is so painstakingly beautiful in all the best ways. I was laughing with the characters one minute then crying for them the next. It completely won me over and is (and forever will be) one of my favorite books. I sat there after finishing the book still crying for a good hour. These characters portray how fragile our lives are in the sense that a myriad of changes can turn us upside down but through this fragility we find strength to not only pick up ourselves but also each other. John Green is an amazing author and I absolutely can't wait for his next book.

    Like A LOT! John Green is a hilarious, fantastic writer, and I think he really does a good job developing his characters. I could relate to both Hazel and Gus (I love Augustus Waters soo much....) and their relationship was the cutest thing EVER!!!
    Yes, the book is tragic, and I temporarily hated John Green (but not really) for what he did, and even though it was predictable, it was heartbreaking.
    I loved Gus' cigarette metaphor and everything else in the book, because it's just beautiful.

    DEFINITELY 5 STARS. Nuff' said. When i read the 1-star comments, (you know, all 29 of them?), I literally just laughed to myself '13 year old boy humor?'
     'whiny characters?' and, my personal favorite. ' When people are dying, they don't have time to be poetic
     and put cigarettes in their mouth for metaphorical reasons' This book was original, fantastic, and I
     related to the characters very well. It is so good, my friend and I discuss parts of the book on a daily
     basis. People say the book just isn't their thing, but in my opinion, this book is  EVERYONE'S thing.
     They should laugh, cry, and read the book again.This book is my favorite of all time, and to all the people
     that rated it 5 stars, i now have faith in humanity. :)
    john green, you better be writing a new book soon. And even if it just doesnt live up to TFiOS,
     (which i am 100% positive it will), It will still be one of my
     favorites, because if this book is my first, there is always room for a second fave!! EVERYONE
     NEEDS TO READ THIS. I don't care if you read it illegally, or buy it off another site.
     This book is definitely a life-changer
    DFTBA!

    I am absolutely in love with this book, I am a young female read

    I am absolutely in love with this book, I am a young female reader (I'm a teen) I am also a bit of a writer myself. Anyway to the point this book is the best book I have ever read, and I read a lot. I would love a sequel more than anything, which in relation reminds me of how Hazel Grace wanted a sequel for AIA. This is a wonderful book and would love Hazel Grace's story to go on, along with what her mother does for her career. I want to see Isaac progress with more of Monica in the picture. This is a book that feels as if I can relate to wanting a sequel to the book I love such as Hazel! I cannot explain how truly amazing this book is. I love how the book is full of emotion; Love, Despair, Sadness, Happiness, suspense. The sadness was what brought the book together for me. I would love a sequel, this will always be my favorite book I recommend it to anybody.

    Am I the only person who thought this book was terrible? I found the writing to be so obnoxious and the characters are so unbelievable as real teenagers, despite the terrible circumstances of their lives. What a disappointment, considering the rave reviews. If you're looking for some great books, have a look at my book blog- Black Bifocals.

    I am extremely angry that I received a damaged copy. What's worse was that I actually ordered 2 copies, and only 1 copy came! I would want to refind it and the website says that refund details are on the packing slip, but I did not even get the packing slip! 
    I've ordered several B&N Exclusive Editions already but this is by far the most horrible one I recieved, not because of the story (I love the story) but because of the book's poor condition.

    Oh God... I'm not even sure where to start with this book.  I've been whipping through John Green books all week, and while I really did enjoy Looking For Alaska and though Paper Towns was well written if just a little boring, The Fault In Our Stars takes the cake as Green's best so far.  I doubt anyone knows this, but John Steinbeck wrote the book East of Eden with the mindset that it was going to be his best piece of literature.  To this day I equate certain works of art with Steinbeck and East of Eden; like if I believe that Bradley Cooperman's best movie was Silver Linings Playbook, then I call it Cooperman's East of Eden.  When I finished The Fault in Our Stars in my boiling hot bedroom today, I was so wrapped up in the book I didn't even realize how hot it was.  I decidedly will not start another book for at least two days in order to have to time to make sense of everything I am feeling towards it and the characters right now.  That, to me, make The Fault In Our Stars John Green's East of Eden; my only fear in saying that is that he will never write a book again that reaches my newly high standards for him, but as of right now, I don't honestly know if he could.  So to put it into as few words as possible, read this book.  And I would recommend buying it, because you will want to look back at certain parts over and over again.  You will laugh and undoubtedly cry, but that does not mean you should deny yourself the privilege of reading this fantastic piece of contemporary literature.

    Barnes and Nobles sent me a defective copy of this book. I was unaware of it for more than 14 days, so they refuse to fix their mistake and send me a correct copy. Barnes and Nobles obviously has no integrity when it comes to fixing their faults. I'm disappointed because this is a great book, but I can't trust Barnes and Nobles to send me a readable, satisfactory product. I highly recommend this product, but you'd have to torture me before I bought it from Barnes and Nobles.

    I preordered this book a long time ago, well I got it a few days after it came out and I was okay with that. Then I started to read it... Well... The book was misprinted. I sent it back for a refund and I got my refund now.. I SENT THE BOOK BACK IN JANUARY AND IT IS MARCH 15! And... I didn't even get my refund back. So I haven't read the book, I can
    t buy a different book, and I'm out a good 20 bucks. Thanks Barnes and Noble <3
