Yes, we saw it. Yes, we cried. In fact, the Leaky staff leaked so many tears over the Leaky Site that we broke it. Which is why we are just now getting to sharing our collective thoughts with you.
We’ve been rereading The Fault in Our Stars over the past few weeks and rediscovering how and why we fell in love with this book, slowly and then all at once (see what I did there?). So, of course, the reread team just had to do a review. That pain, it just demands to be felt, after all.
Okay(?), okay, I’ll stop.
We loved it. We are proud of it. We can’t wait to watch it again. We are so thrilled that this story is out there with the world through another medium and know the book will just continue to find new readers because of it. We hope it wins all the awards and makes all the money (update: it did) and continues to do John and the movie team proud.
But there’s no doubt about it, Nerdfighteria is proud, too. And that seems to come through in each of our reviews.
Be warned: there’s a lot of gushing, descriptions of our own tears, and more gushing, in the pages that follow. We know the movie wasn’t perfect, but what is?
