The Fault in Our Stars is an ingenious piece of work! I finished reading it last summer in about a day. So, yes, I associate John Green's writing style with the kind of writing style that I am most likely to get hooked to. It's like one of those books you pick up and can't put down. The idea is to present the most complex and heartbreaking and eye-opening ideas in the simplest available words. John Green does that so damn well. And the characters he etches are always, every time, memorable. Approve
Well, it is a piece of art and love and humour. OMG! I did it, just this siwali I had to search it, like for, 100 bookstores, can you imagine? 100.  Angry Everyone can assiociate with his writing style, he is one and the best. I love him and adore his books, have you ever read his other books? If you have, tell me for sure, because I want to know them about it. I'm soo eager about his books, but my 9th grade doesn't let me read best books. Thumbs Down Ermm

9th grade is a brief introduction to hell. 11th grade unleashes the real wrath of hell and all its occupants. No kidding. Read as much as you can now and next year. Anyway, alright - John Green's debut books, 'Looking for Alaska' is a genuine masterpiece. I like it much more than this one, and I just explained to you how awesome this is. Then there is 'An Abundance of Katherines' that I read from him next, which was decent, not very good in my opinion but sure worth a read.

I agree it might seem morbid reading jokes on death but that's just the whole point of the story that when you know for sure you are going to die the only thing that you can do to avoid the dark and depressing nature of your reality is to make fun of it and try taking it all in with a heavy dose of humour. That's what John Green has tried to show here by writing it from the point of view of these kids suffering from cancer.

In fact, I don't think it's a mockery of death at all. If anything, I think the story is a lot about how inevitable death is and how painful it can be. Especially for loved ones. Hazel struggles for every breath. Gus knows his cancer is incurable.
 
Read the book. Maybe then we can discuss.
 
The humor was great, yes. :)

They just shed of the depressing thing of death, well one gets cancer they feel its the end of world, and whatsoever it is not the concept, get it. what john green is telling is be the way you were before live each and every moment of your life with soul and happiness.
Let you read the whole book once, we'll give a talk.
