The Fault in Our Stars – John Green

green_starsI finished The Fault in Our Stars a month ago, and the reason I haven’t blogged about it is twofold. Firstly, my blogging energy has been engaged in another project, secondly, I haven’t been quite sure what to say about it, or even how I really feel about it.

Sure, it’s a lovely book. I even cried a little towards the end. But the hype got the better of me, I guess, because I was left feeling a little disappointed. I liked it, but I guess I didn’t really love it. Certainly not with the all encompassing love evident almost daily on my Tumblr dashboard.

So will I read more of John Green’s books? Probably. And I’ll keep The Fault in Our Stars around for the lasses’ enjoyment, perhaps reading it at 14 or so will be more of a life-changing event than reading it at almost 40.

Nå har jeg begynt på The Fault in our Stars, som den siste personen i verden føles det som. Jeg liker den så langt, men er ikke frelst ennå. At det er en og annen språklig perle her, derimot, er hevet over enhver tvil. Som dette, sitert ganske ofte, med god grunn:

As he read, I fell in love the way you fall asleep: slowly, and then all at once.

(s. 124-125)
