The Fault in Our Star by John Green

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green My rating: 2.5 of 5 stars Fiction is not made up of real people for the most part. They are creations. I understand this, but part of great fiction is making the characters feel real. That said, none of the characters felt real. They felt like a…
