No one should read nothing. It’s been a long time since I have picked up a book and read it cover to cover, but ‘the fault in out stars’ has captivated me and has been a great start to reading a book just for pleasure all over again.
It has such a touchy subject as the key point in the book, but never once skirts around the reality of cancer in a child or how the main character ‘Hazel’ feels about being ‘a side effect’ as they all seem to call themselves. It isn’t a typical ‘ I feel sorry for myself about my cancer’ but instead a book about how a teenager will never grow up, even if she grows in age her parents will always have to be there. I haven’t read the whole book yet but strongly recommend it already.
Books are being replaced by tv and films, and kids now a days don’t bother with the book, as quite often the good ones are made into a film. What they don’t realise is you loose so much detail, from a book that could take you a week to read, to be crammed into 90-120 minutes. How does that seem fair to someone’s creativity? Aspects lost that reader gripped onto, or story lines just completely dropped because it doesn’t fit in with the directors view.
You can get so lost in a book, and forget your surroundings. It isn’t quite the same at a cinema.
Take a moment for yourself
All the best
