Words and Draws: “You don’t get to choose if you get hurt in this world, old man, but you do have some say in who hurts you.” – The Fault In Our Stars, John Green
I’m a book person. A sucker for classics, book prize literary masterpieces and “intellectual” reads (whatever that means …) of the like, but I also really enjoy adult young fiction. I’ll read anything if it’s good. The language and stories are less complex but what I love and appreciate is the power of words and how much they can resonate even in the simplest form and written for a younger context.
This book is a damn fine example of that and I love it so so much. Definitely in my top ten. The movie does it pretty good justice too. Do yourself a favour and go there.
