The Fault in Our Stars

Journal Entry: Tue Feb 18, 2014, 11:49 AM
For a while I've known this book was highly recommended, etc. A few days ago I've finally borrowed it from a friend. Now I'm joining the recommending crowd.

If you haven't read it yet, you MUST.

I'm not going to summarize the plot, as I hate spoilers (even as minor as that). But I am going to recommend it while expressing my feelings.

There aren't many books I proclaim to be thus touching, and written in so true a voice. There aren't many books that make me want to curse because they're so, well, touching.
Written by any other person, the plot would make a sad/tragic story. John Green, however, makes it into a charming, heartbreaking lovestory, so full of humor I couldn't even cry. People stared at me on the bus, probably, because I couldn't stop smiling and laughing every other sentence.

John Green is a genius. He takes a tough reality and doesn't shy away of the truth in it, yet creates great beauty out of it.

(I swear, the universe is doing everything to throw certain things in my way at certain times. This is one of these times.)

I probably am not coherent enough to do justice to this marvellous book, repeating myself and banal adjectives and superlatives. Which actually help my point - I rarely am so astounded.
And I'm going to buy it very soon. This is one of those rare books I NEED to have on my shelf.

Last week, we asked you guys to comment and share a thumb of your favourite fandom(s), we've had some great entries, but only one person can swipe the 3 Month Premium Membership, so I would like to bestow it on ninquetari for sharing an excellent deviation based on the work of J.R.R Tolkien.
Thank you for nominating my artwork. I really appreciate it.

You're welcome! It's a wonderful artwork (and I do mean every word I wrote there, both in the first comment and the reply).
