Cute sneak peek.
Just enough to get readers clued in and wanting more.
Definitely a great way to garner interest in not just the story but gives readers an insight to his style of writing.

Thanks for the information about this book. It is an old but, but I have heard great things about it. I purchased this book to have a physical copy.

This sneak peek reminded me of just how much I loved the original book when I read it many years ago. And it has made me want to re-read it.
The angst, the true aspect of living an unpredictable life when we only have one guarantee, which is death.
This book made me laugh, cry, think and just want to live and appreciate every moment!

When given a second chance, what would you do? How do you hold on? What happens if you let go? You've Reached Sam by Dustin Thao is a good read. It's not put-down-able. It tugs at your heartstrings and makes you wonder why, just why.. but life has its reasons and life is unpredictable. Life has many surprises and they all won't be good. Moving on is hard, letting go is even harder. But remember, never forget, to think of me from time to time even if it's just for a few seconds. It young love, future plans, and heartbreak. But most of all it's about knowing when to hold and and when to let go.

Hazel has cancer; she's had cancer most of her life, and she's not expected to survive it. Like many cancer patients, Hazel is in a support group, and many of the same kids have been in the group with her - but then Augustus, a new patient, appears, and turns Hazel's existence upside-down.

Whether or not you like this book will depend on your experiences with illness, either your own or others'. Everyone responds differently to illness, and many of the assumptions that underlie serious and terminal issues, especially when experienced by children, are represented in this book. You will either love it or hate it, but either way, it will provoke a response, and you will remember it.

This book was alright. I’m personally not a fan of John Greens writing. I also don’t like books that involve sickness in them. The writing style was good just not my personal favorite book.

I remember reading this back in high school and rereading it has brought back all the emotions. All the laughs, heart swoons, tears, and smiles. Hazel and Augustus were one of the first book couples I ever shipped together. While I'm now an adult and the book has been out for a better part of 8 years, I am ready to reread this to take me back to where my bookworm days started.

This sneak peek does a great job of expressing the bittersweet tone of the book. The characters have no doubt experienced a great deal of pain, but they're still working to find something to look forward to.

This is an amazing book for young and old alike. John Green has a beautiful writing style. He somehow makes this unfair world make sense, or at least helps the reader come to terms with it.

An absolutely wonderful book guaranteed to bring you to tears. No matter your age, this one is worth your precious reading time.

I had heard about this book for years because it’s so beloved and of course was adapted to film. I accepted to read the sample because what did I have to lose? Well, I just finished the sample, I adored the sample and am really looking forward to the inevitable heartbreak of completing this exquisite book. Curse you John Green!

reading this brought me all the way back to high school, when my friends and i were so easily moved by lines about the main leads giving each other their infinities despite their numbered days and her falling in love with him the way she slept — slowly, then all at once. now that i’ve re-read the sampler, THE FAULT IN OUR STARS doesn’t quite match up to my rose-tinted memories, but i do still like john green’s witty, albeit cheesy, dialogue and easy to read prose and think it’d make for a fun read for teens.

A solid preview of a much loved, familiar story. It's been a long time since I've read this book and this has reminded me to give it a try again sometime.

This sneek peek is a great way to display a great novel we all love.

The Fault in Our Stars is a tear-jerking love story. It tells the tale of two teenagers who meet in a cancer support group. From the get go the reader can see that this one will tragic, but beautiful along the way. The characters were very well written and had a lot of depth to them. They were going through something massive, but were able to get past it and enjoy the time that they had together. Even though the reader knows that this book will end in either one of both of their deaths, it is still an enjoyable read. Overall, this was a lovely story and I would recommend.

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

This book is a YA classic that will make you sob your eyes out!!!

Great preview of The Fault in Our Stars! I had heard so much about this book but never got around to reading it earlier. I have now obtained the complete book after being drawn in by this sneak peek, and am eagerly looking forward to continuing reading the poignantly moving story of Hazel and Augustus.

2014. I sit down in a theater with my young daughter and her best friend. Todays showing is a movie they've been raving about but I've never heard of. Girl meets boy. Sweet. Girl is sick. Oh no. Boy is also sick. Oh no!!! I knew it was over for me long before I left the theater a sniveling mess.

Having loved the movie I had to jump on the chance to read this sneak peek. They always say the book is better than the movie, right? Count resist a comparison. First person point of view is my favorite so I love that we get to hear this story from Hazel herself. I loved to hear her inner most thoughts as she first encountered this mystery boy who would later steal her heart.

The writing style instantly drew me in but also I love that the story gets right to it. No extra fluff and instead all the raw emotions and honesty. Definitely excited to finish the book in its entirety.

Thank you to Penguin Group and Netgalley for this sneak peek. 4.5 stars.

I picked up this sneak peek because I saw John Green discussed everywhere in my YA reading days, and am simply curious about how well deserved that is. If you are curious about whether these books will work for you, do give this one a try. I need to put this book on my TBR right after reading then, and maybe a detailed review of that will come!

I was disappointed to learn this was only a sample of The Fault in Our Stars. Nevertheless, I enjoyed this sneak peek into what seems a well beloved story. It has me wanting to get my hands on the full novel.
