The Fault in Our Stars

Parents need to know that The Fault in Our Stars is a story about teens fighting cancer, and sensitive readers might be uncomfortable with the subject matter and sometimes graphic descriptions of what it’s like to die. Hazel has some near-death experiences and also copes with Gus as he vomits uncontrollably, etc. Characters lose eyes, legs, control of their personalities, and more. Also, characters play violent video games and read books and watch movies with high body counts. There’s some swearing and drinking, and the two main characters, who are in love, do have (safe) sex, though it’s described only briefly. This is a mature and powerful story: Hazel not only provides teens with insight about what it is like to know you’re dying — and to lose someone you love — but her story is also about deciding to love and be loved, even when you know it will cause pain.

This book is an amazing story of bravery and romance. Something that I love about TFIOS (that I have also stated in my YouTube video) is that I love how real this book is. The story it tells isn’t fiction fantasy; it’s a real story with real characters and real problems in the real world. I think that’s what makes them so relatable. They struggle with everyday problems just like the rest of us, only theirs are a bit more extreme. Hazel Grace is such an amazing heroine. I notice that nobody ever calls her that, but she is. She is more brave than any of the others from my fandoms. She’s stronger than Katniss Everdeen. She’s braver than Tris. She’s more loyal than Clary. Even Hermione shrinks in comparison with her. Hazel Grace Lancaster is THE hero. Maybe she never faced demons, but she had to fight Stage IV cancer, isolation and the loss of her boyfriend. Hazel Grace is the strong one. Whenever I read the book, I always feel like I am having a direct conversation with Hazel and Augustus. To me, it feels like they are actually sitting right in front of me, not trapped within the confines of pages. But not to worry about that problem anymore, because the movie is coming!!!  so excited !!

An incredible book that definitely deserves all the attention and brilliant reviews that it has received. Thank you all for reading my TFIOS Book Review, I hope you enjoyed it!

Jane Eyre

First published in 1847,this book has remained classic for over a century.It is one of the most read romantic novels of all time.It’s about a woman named Jane.She is strong-willed and is not afraid of what the world might think about her. She has her faults and openly declares her all too human nature. She’s not beautiful and is keenly aware of the fact. She doesn’t aspire to be the typical asexual Victorian woman who doesn’t care about her looks. She even freely admits to not having enough of a selfless spirit to work solely for the benefit of others.

It’s quite a classy piece of work and the only problem with classics is that you will find some unusual words which you have to look up in the dictionery.So while reading this book keep dictionery b y your side. Charlotte Brontë tends to expand into flowery language for long passages which is perhaps one of the only shortcomings I found.

This book also throws light on how children were treated in those days and how their guardians could legally ill treat them without any social backlash. Doubtless many children are mistreated even in today’s world, but not openly. Another strong theme of the book, and what would in other circumstances be a flaw in Jane’s character, is her open and unquestioning devotion to God and the “duties” which she’s supposed to follow.

It’s interesting to see that even though Jane is not bound by societal norms, indeed having no relatives and no one whose opinion would affect her in the slightest, she is nonetheless bound by the same social strictures by virtue of the Bible. In several situations this prevents her from reaching out and taking the happiness that is offered to her and which has been missing in her life so far. At one stage, she totters on the brink of throwing her life away as an ill-suited missionary in India because she is persuaded to believe that it is her “duty to God”.

Thankfully, things work out well in a completely believable way without the author having to resort to absurd coincidences . Brontë ties up the story nicely in quite a touching manner. Unlike the dashing hero Mr. Darcy found in Pride and Prejudice, Jane’s lover Mr. Rochester is not a handsome man and is almost ugly. It is little things like this that in my opinion raise the novel about the regular run-of-the-mill romance. There is a good deal of depth of character in the main actors.

Jason says….

4426615 jeThe entire novel is filled with this brilliant imagery. Brontë is a master of language and it is amazing how one can relate to these described emotions nearly two hundred years later. Although I do find it mildly ridiculous that Jane just happens to chance upon her long lost relatives in the woods, overall I really really enjoyed this book.

11014315 audreyJane Eyre is a truly excellent book! There is something about it that leaves you thinking “this book is PERFECT.” Charlotte Bronte did an amazing job writing this. I don’t know how else to explain this but I found the writing to be precious. This book is like a jewel to me. I loved how smart and defending Jane was and how Mr. Rochester was dark and proud. Damn! I loved all the characters. They were written in such a way that just left you amazed, no matter if they were as horrible as Mrs. Reed or scary as the supposedly Sarah Poole.

                                                                                                                         

This book is filled with imagery.You will feel yourself involved in the book.This book is gonna take you to that era and you will fell the same emotions as Jane.I highly recommend this book.
