The Fault in Our Stars – Book to Movie Adaptation Review

THE BOOKThe_Fault_in_Our_Stars

Title: The Fault in Our Stars

Author: John Green

John Green is the author of many popular YA contemporary novels such as Looking for Alaska, Paper towns, and An abundance of Katherines just to name of few. He also have a vlog channel on Youtube with his brother Hank called VlogBrothers, and a growing fanbase called Nerdfighters.

Genre: YA contemporary

Synopsis: I feel like everybody know this book and what it is about but it mainly focuses on Hazel Grace Lancaster, a teenager affected by cancer, and the boy she meets at support group, Augustus Waters and his friend, Isaac. It is beautifully written and gives the reader a different perspective on life and death.

My rating for the book: 4 stars

THE MOVIE

tfiosRelease date: June 6th 2014

Director: Josh Boone

Starring: Shailene Woodley as Hazel, Ansel Elgort as Augustus & Nat Wolff as Isaac

Review: At first, I wasn’t convinced by the cast, because they were all very different from what I had imagined while reading the book. Except Isaac, who was actually spot on. Although the book has its fair share of sad moments, I didn’t cry while reading it. The movie, however, does a good job of tearing your heart out. That being said, I thought it was very true to the book. A lot of lines/quotes were taken directly from John Green’s prose and they were a pleasure to hear.

On a side note, I went to an early screening one of my guy friend had tickets for. He didn’t read the book and has never been a fan of soppy sad romance, but he enjoyed the movie as much as I did.

My rating for the adaptation: 5 stars
