This book is amazing, but there are some things that don't make sense. It is a tear-jerking novel about two teenagers with cancer, who talk like 60-year-old librarians. I understand test this is to enhance the idea of them looking at life as if really is, but they are still teens. Let them talk like they are. There should have been more humor; there where little to no moments when you sat there laughing for a moment after Gus cracked a joke, only after his extreme moments of cockiness. There were also no moments when you were excited after a plot twist, because there were none. The idea of the plot was good, but the way it was delivered could have been better. Don't get me wrong, I respect John Green and love his work, but this one could have been better.
