My friends and connections on social media often ask me- What is your review of The Fault in our Stars book?

I had read this novel around five years ago. I didn’t use to run this blog back then. Thus, haven’t written the Fault in Our Stars book review. Since this book by author John Green has gained so much momentum and love over the years, it was recently made into a Bollywood movie called Dil Bechara.

So, here is the book review of The Fault in Our Stars book online:

TFIOS is an ideal fictional story that everyone will love, regardless of age. Although the reader base for this book was considered teenagers and young adults, but people of even old age will find this an interesting and soul-soothing read. 

Even if you read The Fault in Our Stars book PDF online, it will give you an emotional feel and touch your heart in several instances in the story. There is a bit of humour as well.

This is the reason the book achieved success in the market, was adapted into a Hollywood movie and now a Bollywood movie titled Dil Bechara.  

The length of the book is not much. Even if it was a lengthy book, I would have read it in a maximum of two sittings. You can’t skip and wait when the story is good. This is one such book. I loved the book and I’m sure you will love it too.
