I believe most of you have already heard the news of John Green's much appreciated creation The Fault in Our Stars being adapted as a movie with the same title and I firmly believe you're just as excited as I am! Aren't you? That's why I thought I'd share my excitement with you, my readers through sharing the information I managed to gather about this much talked and book-to-movie adaptation.
Hazel and Gus are two teenagers who share an acerbic wit, a disdain for the conventional, and a love that sweeps them on a journey. Their relationship is all the more miraculous given that Hazel's other constant companion is an oxygen tank, Gus jokes about his prosthetic leg, and they met and fell in love at a cancer support group.

Here's My Review of the book
Lastly, a personal note: I don't know whether you'll agree with me or not but I don't like books being made as movies. It basically kills the story, the essence of the book, in most of the cases. Whenever I've gone watching a movie after reading the book its based on, I've been hugely disappointed. I think if you're doing a film based on a book, you should at least keep the story intact but mostly they improvise it so much that ends up changing the story itself. So I earnestly hope the same doesn't happen with TFIOS. This book is very close to my heart and one of my all time favourites and it'd be very unfair to the book if they do such treatments with the movie. I hope the movie turns out to be just as great as the book is!
