The Fault in Our Stars

I've been wanting to read John Green's books for a while now and I just got The Fault in Our Stars and Looking for Alaska from my brother for Christmas. I finished the former yesterday and let me just say, you should read it. It is at turns funny and sad. The characters are charming and real in how they deal with the side effects of dying. It is a terminal love story that makes me grateful for being alive while questioning the value of my own existence. It is a quick read and an important one.
