"One doesn't like to throw around phrases like 'instand classic' lightly, but I can see 'The Fault in our Stars' taking its place alongside 'Are You There God? It's Me Margaret' in the young-adult canon. Green's book is also a good example of why so many adult readers are turning to young-adult literature for the pleasure and consolations they used to get from conventional literary fiction."-TIME Magazine
"The Fault in our Stars is a love story, one of the most genuine and moving ones in recent American fiction, but it's also an existential tragedy of ttremendous intelligence and courage and sadness."-TIME Magazine
