The Fault in Our Stars

The Fault in Our Stars - John Green His best book by far. Captures death and grief with more clarity than any other book I've ever read. Not very subtle - metaphors that Must Not Be Ignored and unrealistic dialogue for the sake of existentialism. Deliberately very quotable in a way that sacrifices narrative.
