Reviews (Spoiler Alert!)

“In its every aspect, The Fault in Our Stars is a triumph.” 

— Booklist, starred review


— Entertainment Weekly

“A smartly crafted intellectual explosion of a romance.”

Kirkus, starred review

“A blend of melancholy, sweet, philosophical, and funny. Green shows us true love…and it is far more romantic than any sunset on the beach.” 

— New York Times Book Review

“One doesn’t like to throw around phrases like “instant classic” lightly, but I can see The Fault in Our Stars taking its place alongside Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret in the young-adult canon. Green’s book is also a good example of why so many adult readers are turning to young-adult literature for the pleasures and consolations they used to get from conventional literary fiction.”

— Time

“Green writes books for young adults, but his voice is so compulsively readable that it defies categorization. The Fault in Our Stars proves that the hype surrounding Green is not overblown.”


“A pitch-perfect, elegiac comedy…it will linger long and hard in the minds of teens and former teens.”

— USA Today

“An achingly beautiful story.”

— SLJ, starred review

“John Green deftly mixes the profound and the quotidian in this tough, touching valentine to the human spirit.”

— Washington Post
