First of all, if you haven’t seen the trailer for this book-turned-movie, you’re living under a rock. Second of all, if you didn’t either A) tear up or B) ball your eyes out during the trailer, you probably don’t have a soul. The Fault in Our Stars, written by John Green, was a #1 New York Times Bestseller, #1 Wall Street Journal Bestseller and the #1 Indiebound bestseller. And Time Magazine oh so casually called this book “damn near genius.” So there you have it. Read the book. Seriously, just do it. Especially before the movie comes out. It’s a quick read, but the power it will have over you will be everlasting. The book was incredible, and the movie looks just as amazing. The story of Hazel and Gus on the big screen will be sure to change the way you look at love forever. It’s the epic Rose and Jack (of The Titanic) love story of this decade. Why? Here are 4 reasons.
1. The story will captivate you right from the beginning.
2. It’s 100% relatable (AKA real/cute/adorable/sad/hilarious/wildly depressing)
3. Their relationship is the opposite of conventional.
Yet somehow, it’s the most perfect.
4. The ending will leave you reeling for weeks.
You should read the book if you want to know what happens.
The movie comes out June 6th in theaters. Bring your box of tissues; I promise you will need them. Get ready for the miraculous love story that will leave your heart in shambles.
