A few days ago, I finally finished reading The Fault In Our Stars, which I kept a slow pace to reach the finish line over six weeks. I thought this would be the kind of book, that would suck you right in and have it finished in one go in the matter of a couple of hours on a lonely afternoon. Maybe the reason half way through I felt uninterested, was due to the way I had built this up in my head. The first half wasn’t terrible, but due to the amount of publicity it gets on tumblr, my mind didn’t know how the second half was going to set itself apart from every other young adult fiction. Eventfully, things picked up, and by the books end, I can see what everyone was going on about.
Upon finishing the book, I did a google search about the upcoming film. Although I knew that Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort would be portraying our leads, Hazel Lancaster and Augustus Waters, but the leads are so well complemented in the supporting cast. Nat Wolff will play Isaac, Laura Dern and Sam Trammell will play Hazel’s parents, and Willem Dafoe will portray Peter Van Houten. It’s been a while since I have been this excited about a book adoptions cast.
Directed by Josh Boone, The Fault In Our Stars will be released June 6, 2014. Check out the trailer above.
