Sometime last year I preordered this book for my husband, probably the biggest 30something grown man fan of John Green EVER. Seriously, if they made a John Green sheet and comforter set, it would be on our bed. It arrived yesterday, and like the good wife that I am, I waited for him to arrive home and open it to see what color sharpie John Green had signed his book. (It was red, btw.) Anyway, after watching my husband read it for 2 1/2 hours nonstop last night, I promptly stole it off his nightstand around 1 am, and I finished it just a mere few moments ago.
I have to say of all the John Green books, this one is my favorite. I think it is that even though they were two cancer-filled teenagers, their relationship reminded me of our courtship, which began over an email conversation in regards to having a relationship with “more light than heat.” I found out later that was my sweet husband’s hidden attempt at “testing” my intelligence.
Anyway, enough about me, let’s talk about the book. I had listened before to my husband’s vlogbrother videos when John had read from the book, so I knew the premise. I was worried it would be a rather painful story since you figured someone was eventually going to die. However, it wasn’t like that. I loved the love story. It brings back those memories of first falling for the love of your life. It was a fun and funny, and the plot twists were unexpected.
