The Fault in Our Stars

The Fault in our StarsIf you want a good book to read or a good movie to see The Fault in our Starsthis summer, then The Fault in your Stars is highly recommended. The movie is described as in the ‘romantic’ genre, but it is so much more than that, dealing very sensitively and realistically with issues of terminal illness in two young people and the impact on their parents and friends. It is above all an affirmation of life in the midst of the ever present threat of death. As one reviewer writes: Lasting love requires the risk of losing it.This is not a morbid book. Hazel and Graceinvite us to laugh and live lifeto the fullest as long as we can.
