Cover Reveal - The Fault In Our Stars by John Green


The Fault In Our Stars by John Green
January 10th, 2012 by Dutton Juvenile

Publisher's Weekly says: The title, The Fault in Our Stars, is a reference to the famous line in Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar, “The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars/But in ourselves, that we are underlings.” The Fault in Our Stars, a novel about teens dealing with terminal illnesses, features Green’s first female narrator, 16-year-old Hazel Grace Lancaster, who is battling thyroid cancer.


This is one of those times I want to say, "What does is all mean?" The black cloud over the white cloud....I understand the concept, but what's up with the clouds? I must say thank GOSH there isn't a pic of a girl on the cover! I'm glad it is more art-based that photo-based. Still....this is as simple as simple can get. Anyone notice the blurb from Jodi Picoult? #bigtime

What do you guys think? Disappointed? Surprised?

  1. Honestly, I was a bit disappointed. It comes off rather... childish, I guess would be the way to describe it.

  2. Hmmm... Methinks this cover is designed to make it appeal to adults. You see a great deal of adult literature with simple covers like this to make it appear more literary. I think this was their strategy with this one.

  3. It's a little...plain. Not very eye-catching. But, maybe in a world of eye-catching covers, that'll make it stand out even more. besides, it's John Green, right?
