In the world of [a:John Green|1406384|John Green|http://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/authors/1353452301p2/1406384.jpg], teenagers are witty, worldly and muse philosophically with large vocabularies. If you can get over this fact and, like, you have a soul, you'll fall for this book just like I have.
John Green is a very thoughtful and honest writer, and he takes care to write a full story for his characters. You find out near the middle of the book that one character is close to dying. There isn't a quick death, with the one left behind gazing mournfully at a sunset. Just as the beginning half is giddy with the sweetness of falling in love, the second half chips away brutally at your heart with the realities of a person slowly succumbing to a disease. I was shedding tears even while laughing at the humour the characters still brought to their situation.
I can't wait for the movie.
