Continuing with our journey of sadness, we are covering The Fault in Our Stars this week. With heavy allusions to Shakespeare, we get to follow the star-crossed lovers of Augustus and Hazel as they meet, bond over their mutual burden of cancer, and fall in love. Another tender love story, we spend a considerable amount of time enjoying the character development and wit of the protagonists. It is a poignant book on living in-spite of all trial and tribulation, and making the most out of each day. Be ready for an emotional episode.
Next week we will be reading a new book in one week, Eggs.
