WARNING : SPOILER ALERT
The book was excellent as it shows what a cancer patient and their families go though. It shoes that cancer patients biggest fear is to touch the lives of other people and then have that person feel bad at the loss of them. It was really touching how Augustus was the one to teach Hazel how to make life count, no matter how short it may be.
The book had many heartbreaking moments. The time when Augustus died is one of these moments. As sad as they were, I feel that those moments are hat made the book feel more realistic. This book discussed very sad topics – loss, death, illness and fear. However, the author counteracted these topics with happy topics – love, friendship and hope. I really enjoyed this book. I hope to get some feedback from you soon on what you thought about this book.
