I read this with my brother as a read along. We finished it very quickly because it was very good. I cried a bit and rooted for Hazel, Gus, and Isaac. They are amazingly likable characters. My one fault with them was simply they are just too plucky, wise, and well spoken to be believable as teenagers. That being said it still didn't deter from the fact that they completely charmed me. I wanted all good things for them and when the worst did occur I sobbed. This a first John Green novel for me and I'm impressed enough to say I'll be looking into his other novels. I highly recommend.
