I have to say that I am so infatuated with John Green's writing!
Seriously, the way it was written just felt right, the characters have depth and are just lovely and witty. Although I think many people will assume it will be a "sad" book, yet I think it has to be quite a hopeful and hilarious novel! It kept me laughing through any sadness presented.
Diffused the tension, just like in real life people tend to make light of things. (as a person who has two parents that are both counsellors, I have to say John Green did an amazing job in developing his characters mentally, whether it was intentional or nay) It kept me happy (and optimistic in my own life).
To quote USA Today on the blurb it is an "elegiac comedy" and definitely- for me- ticks all my boxes in terms of great reading. Personally it is what I look for in a book, and in addition is something that I think is hard to come by in writing.
Although I cried, especially at the end, and the angst is always something you have to deal with when suffering with post-book depression; if you haven't read it (though I'm sure many of you have) or even heard of it you should look it up, and buy it ASAP!!
Sidenotes: Also, YES I am a Nerdfighter. I've watched some Vlogbrothers videos, but never really subscribed, but now I have and ploughing my way through the marathon of videos they have!
(also hoping to fill this out at some point - and its been ages since I've done much on here cause of Uni, life etc etc. excuses)
Finally go here for an even less coherent keyboard smash of gif feels on the subject of John Green's infuriatingly good book here: to TUMBLR!
