"Amazing book, my English teacher recommended it to me and I finished it in only a few days. If you were just told the plot-line you wouldn’t think it would be such a fantastic book. But Green writes for every use of the word FABULOUS characters you get that bond that few writers can create. He writes characters that make true and horrible mistakes and can follow it up by writing about how other characters cope with said decisions, it’s hard to write that well and he does it more then well. A book that will leave to puzzling your existence and meaning in the world. 27/30 "
