Book Review – The Fault In Our Stars

This review is written about a book called “The Fault In Our Stars” by John Green.

The Fault in Our Stars (often abbreviated as TFiOS) is the fourth solo novel by author John Green, published in January 2012. The story is narrated by a sixteen-year-old cancer patient named Hazel, who is forced by her parents to attend a support group, where she subsequently meets and falls in love with the seventeen-year-old Augustus Waters, an ex-basketball player and amputee.

– Wikipedia

TFiOS is a story that makes you realize how fragile the life is and how one person can change your whole world. In this book, we meet sixteen-year-old Hazel who has depression and is living her life, waiting for her final day that will come faster than to other her peers.

Her mother is trying to help her, forcing her to join a support group for young teenagers like her. She doesn’t  like the group because it makes her feel powerless until a guy named Augustus joins in one public attend.

Augustus is the type of guy Hazel would never guess to approach her. She falls for his charm and his gentle way of trying to get to know her.

But at the same time, Hazel is afraid to let Augusts too close to her because she knows that he will get hurt  at the end. It takes them time to figure everything out but they find a way to work it out.

Story ends with an unpredictable twist and leaves you breathless. The power of books and their influence on people.

John Green’s vocabulary is voluminous and the word choose is right for teenage audience.

The Knife – band from Sweden which can make good music

Hello there!

Recently i have been looking for new and good music bands because it’s summer break before first year of university. And I have found some good bands I can proudly share with.. and one of them is The Knife.

The Knife is a Swedish electronic music band. I like that they are not making the traditional electronic music but something way much better – like art for your ears. Also, you can do absolutely anything while listening this music and I think it is great background music while you are having road trips around your country or just laying on the green grass in a cloudy day with just earphones on your ears.

The members of The Kife are brother and sister – Olof Dreijer and Karin Dreijer Andersson. They don’t really make public appearances even if they have won big awards like Swedish Grammis, but I think that’s the part of their philosophy or protest against the growing music industry, but in my opinion, they should send their message a bit differently like with music, obviously, and their music videos.

Together band has 4 studio albums and most recent one which was released on 5 April 2013 and it’s called Shaking the Habitual. It’s way different from other artist albums but it is still enjoyable. One of my favourite songs is Raging Lung which is amazing because of Karins voice, used musical instruments and the harmony which should not be there but is.

And, yeah, I think you should check this band out and see for yourselves.
