Reading this was like being on a roller-coaster, but not a simple roller-coaster! There were actually two! First one is the roller-coaster of emotions because of the events in the book: you can be crying your eyes out on one page and on the next page you’ll be rolling around laughing so hard you inhale whatever you happen to be drinking at the time.
TIP 1 when reading TFIOS – Don’t drink anything while reading this!
TIP 2 when reading TFIOS – If you are a person who cries while reading but hates crying in front of other people, avoid reading this book in public.
The second roller-coaster you are on while reading this is the emotions you have towards the author! Honest to God, I switched from hating to loving John Green so many times that I think even the universe felt it! I kept arguing with the book (not a good thing to do when in a cafe surrounded by people).
TIP 3 when reading TFIOS – if you’re the sort of reader who is really affected by the book they are reading and are likely to argue with the said book while reading it and would like to preserve the reputation of yourself as a sane person – you might think about reading this book in the provacy of your room. Just saying.
All in all, this is an amazing cancer book that is not about cancer, and a love story that is more than a love story. This book will break your heart, it will strengthen you, it will make all the muscles in your body ache from all the laughing, and it will show you that you can embrace your hamartia because that is who you are.
