Beautiful Work of Fiction, Jan. 22 2012
What a beautiful book. Green has found the truth, deep sadness and lots of humour in the story of teenagers living with cancer. His prose is delicious, literate, poetic and but with a forward momentum that makes it impossible to put the book down. This a book with big ideas and is ultimately life affirming.
It was an equally great read for my teenage nerd-fighting daughter and for me. I highly recommend it.
I hate to sully my review for this wonderful book by mentioning the massive failure of Amazon.ca to deliver on the promise of signed copies but there is no place else to mention it. Epic fail. It will make me think twice about ordering from Amazon ever again. But I am a fan for life of John Green.
