Not just a one day event, I'm blogging every day about what I'm thankful for

http://www.amazon.com/Fault-Our-Stars-John-Green-ebook/dp/B005ZOBNOI/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1402277086&sr=1-1&keywords=the+fault+in+our+stars
This is probably not going to be a popular review. Full disclosure, I listened to this as an audio book, the unabridged edition.

I gave this book three out of five stars. Quite frankly, I just couldn’t connect with the characters and found the book a bit boring. There was one point about ¾ of the way through that I thought was a great place to end the book. It would have left me guessing and wondering. Now, I don’t have to do any of that and I probably won’t give this book another thought.

I always question whether or not books (and movies for that matter), just get overhyped. I had this on my to be read list right after it came out. But then it was pushed so much and the audiobook was cheap in anticipation of the movie release.

I thought this was generally predictable and shallow and required too much suspension of belief on my part. I was disappointed in it. But then, I’m not a teenage girl either.

  1. I thought this was going to be a critique’ on the current crop of Hollywood vermin. LOL!!

  2. I have to agree that this book was not memorable for me either. Well written, well balanced review.

  3. Thanks for saving me the money, Pamela. 🙂
