    But to those who have read it, what are your thoughts, better than Looking for alaska?

    It's great, John Green's best I think. I found it more enjoyable to read than Paper Towns. I read Paper Towns after TFIOS and found that Paper Towns was boring at times!

    I loved it! The characters were so well developed and Green captured Hazel's voice so well. It's amazing that he can just do that, just write in the voice of a teenage girl and manage to do it justice. What I loved most about this book is that it didn't sugar coat the topic of cancer. He made it so realistic and you can almost feel Hazel's lungs struggling to breathe and can feel the pain that they're all going through. He captured the ugliness of the disease and mixed it with classic Johm green humor and came out with this amazing book.

    Though, I think I preferred Looking for Alaska just a bit more. Perhaps it's beacuse that was the first John Green book I read.

    Also, I love the Vlogbrothers! DFTBA!

    Really good - I couldn't put it down. I've not read any of his others to compare it to, but I want to read Looking for Alaska.

    I think TFIOS was the most enjoyable to read amongst John's books. The other ones had a lot of thinking needed, especially Katherines, even though math skills weren't required, I found myself lost at a lot of points. In TFIOS you can just read and not think about anything else but what Hazel is telling you. Although it was the most emotionally draining, it's still my favourite so far. DFTBA!

    P.S. John said he will be doing a UK tour in January/February next year, I am so excited!

    I love TFiOS! It's definitely my favourite of John's books and I've been forcing it upon my friends, who all loved it too
