The Fault in Our Stars - John Green

I'm still pleasantly surprised, actually! I'm surprised that I haven't seen more people complain about the oh-so-obvious instalove, though. (I wonder why it's okay for some books, but not okay for others?) It's not perfect, but I like Hazel's voice and the story so far. The word "said" is used far too much, though. It bothers me when I read out loud. :/
