Reviews for This Star Won't Go Out:

"Just so you can’t say we didn’t warn you, This Star Won’t Go Out will make you sob (unless you don’t have a soul). But it will also make you smile, as one of those rare books that will change the way you look at the world. The true story of Esther, a teen with cancer, this book is a compilation of her essays, short fiction, journal entries and family photos. You might not expect a 16-year-old with a terminal illness to be funny, but Esther is cleverly so while eschewing bitterness.

Author John Green got to know Esther after meeting her at a Harry Potter convention, and they formed a meaningful friendship. So meaningful, in fact, that he dedicated The Fault in Our Stars to her and wrote the foreword to this book. Just released, This Star Won’t Go Out is one book that will stick with you long after you finish it."

WHEN I GROW UP: I want to be an author (p. 29) 28. Januar 2014
Von Amy Y. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
While Esther Grace Earl never did get to grow up, her family and friends did make her dream of becoming an author come true.

I have no idea how to review a book like this. I personally loved it. Yes, it was sad- but it was also full of joy and love. The book is a compilation of journal entries, posts, letters, pictures etc. from Esther, her friends and family as she deals with both living and dying from cancer. I was struck by how much love and admiration this young girl inspired in those around her. I think it is an amazing tribute that her family went on to make this book happen. And I love the idea that everyone who reads this book will contribute to Esther's wish to be an author 'someday'.

The book is filled with real stories from the daily life of a teenaged girl- some are sad, some are funny- it runs the entire range. It was easy to be drawn in and feel as if I were getting to know Esther myself.

There are some very sad, depressing parts of this story- for me, it was a real tearjerker but I couldn't put it down. This is not a novel and it does not read like one. This story is told in bits and pieces from many sources. It made me think alot about what would be left behind at the end of my life, how my story would read.

John Green (The Fault in Our Stars) writes a lovely introduction. Esther was very involved on the internet. Even though her physical world became somewhat limited due to her illness, she managed to expand virtually where she could not physically. She garnered a large and close-knit community of friends and support through the internet. It was very interesting to see Esther and her family leveraging social media to communicate with family and friends but also to make new friends and further enrich their lives in what must have been a very difficult time.

I think this was a beautiful book and it was a quick, easy read. I did find myself rereading portions almost immediately after I finished. And yes, I bawled like a baby at the end. I'm glad I had the chance to read it. This book might not be something you set out to find, but I think you will be glad you did. The writing isn't neat and tidy but it is real, and life is not neat and tidy in general. If you want a light read with a happy ending and no tears, you might pass on this. I didn't think the end was depressing, more the opposite. After everything Esther went through, her family and friends went through, it was uplifting to see that the people in Esther's life did go on, helped each other go on, but Esther still remains in the middle of them. Quite lovely. (Really, get some kleenex, though.)

This book saved my life 6. Februar 2014
Von drbrydges - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I never ever (and I mean never EVER) write reviews for books on Amazon. I mean, there are so many people that write reviews for books that I just feel like they get lost in the vast abyss of book reviews, never to see the light of day or ever reach those who want an honest review of the book you just read. With that said, I shall now bring forth to you my very first Amazon book review. Bear with me, for I am about to embark on an unknown journey.

This book is beautiful. The way it is set up gives not only an impression of how Esther lived her life, but how her life affected those around her. Beginning with an extremely heart wrenching introduction by John Green (which literally caused me to sob in the book store I first found this book in), I was fascinated by how thoughtful and energetic Esther was throughout her life. I mean, regardless of the cancer taking its toll on her she never lost that spunky teenage beauty that we all remember and ponder on. She wrote beautiful letters, diary entries, and made wonderful YouTube videos which showed us that humanity and beauty are all around us.

Esther helped me realize that you have two choices: you can wallow in self pity and let yourself fade away, or you can go seek happiness wherever you are and understand that while life is not necessarily fair or understandable, we can make do with what we have, love all those who come into our lives, and provide happiness and compassion to those who need it. She was and still is a shining star. She didn't deserve to be taken away from us, but I believe that she accomplished so much in her short life that those accomplishments will echo onwards for decades to come. I had lost hope in my life before I found this book. Now that I literally devoured the book in two days I have to come to accept that I need to live more in the present - in the now. I focus too much on the future and the what ifs.

Esther's bravery has made a lasting impression and will make a lasting impression on all the readers who purchase this book. I couldn't recommend it more. You need to own this book. This book needs to be read.

Fair warning though: you will cry multiple times.

Great book 29. Januar 2014
Von Brian Allyn - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This book is the story and experiences of Esther Earl, a girl that John knew and was a huge part of the online Nerdfighter community, who unfortunately died of cancer at just 16 in 2010. I can’t claim to have known her but her story is one that I think everyone in the community knows a little about and I just wanted to read her story in her own words, as well as from the viewpoint of the people around her.

I couldn’t review this book in the way I usually would because you cannot put a non-fiction real-life story into the same group as fiction, so this will be more of a discussion and a recommendation than a review.

From the beginning of this, I was in tears. John Green’s introduction was the most heart-warming yet devastating things that I have read. I always knew that there was a connection between Esther and The Fault in our Stars but reading this book really proved just how much Esther’s presence effected John and how her story is one that needs to be seen as complex and human, and how Hazel is not Esther, though without Esther, Hazel wouldn’t exist.

The book itself really captures the feeling of the book. Although it is sad, I like that the publisher decided on a bright cover and packaging for this book because it stops it feeling like a bleak depressing story. Of course, it is sad but the colourful pages, the inclusion of photographs, drawings and handwritten passages, make it a lot more approachable and real. Esther was a real person, a complex and unique individual and I think that this book really does reflect that and stops it being another cancer story.

One thing that was a little odd for me to read about was Esther’s faith. I am not a religious person and usually reading about someone’s religion would distance me from the book, but in this case I completely understood her faith and her belief in it. In such a dire situation it was refreshing to read Esther’s words on faith and her cancer in all its honestly. She is completely honest in these pages and it just adds to the sadness of the book. As John Green has said many times, Esther was a young person who was not defined by her illness and I think that this definitely comes through in these pages.

I have said that this book is sad; I mean I cried through the majority of its pages, but it is also full of hope and love and happy memories. Esther is someone that will continue to inspire me in my life and I urge you to pick up this book and be inspired by Esther’s story too. This is one of the most human stories that I have read and I can’t recommend it enough.

YOU WILL NOT BE PREPARED FOR THE EMOTIONS 1. Februar 2014
Von Tamaralynn Shute - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
This book is just wonderful. I really loved the way that it was set up and organized. It's so refreshing to read the story of such a beautiful-on-the-inside-and-outside person. I would be so proud if this were the story of my generation (Esther was born less than four months after me.

It's so hard not to read the date and remember what I was doing that day. Esther's perspective gives you so much joy that it hurts so much to read her write about her uncertainties and her pain. It has made me analyze myself and question who I want to be. Esther makes it all look so easy. She stands in the face of death and still continues to be a loving person who finds the joy in life when there is so much pain. Also, Esther writes very well, even as a young girl. Esther will live on forever in these words that her parents have collected and published.

Congratulations on becoming an author. Rest in awesome, Esther.

To everyone else, DFTBA.

Tribute To A Girl Full Of Life! 22. Mai 2014
Von Georgiana Romanovna - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I always pride myself on giving honest reviews and this one, although difficult, will be no different.

Firstly, I don't think this would harm anyone to read this book, and for young teens especially I feel it could do them a great deal of good to learn how life has no forever promises.

I found Esther to be a normal, happy, very bubbly young girl; very full of life as most teens are. She was dealt an extremely cruel blow by dying of cancer at such a tender age, and that very fact broke my heart for her, her friends and family. No one, no matter what age should die of cancer, particularly one so young!

But as a literary book? No, for me this part didn't come together. It was extremely broken, disjointed, and difficult to read as much of it was normal teen chit chat that we all did when young. I also felt, and could be wrong, that the printing of this book was more to make a posthumous wish of Esther's come true. If that was the case, the gesture was a very beautiful one. However, I wish Esther had grown up and then written her book in her very own way. But that is the point. Esther was not given the chance.

Read the book. You will gain something from it, but don't have great expectations of mature literary prose. Look for the beauty of a teen growing up amidst absolute chaos of never knowing what will beset her next and the grace with which she handles it.

My review is for not only Esther and her family, but for every Mother, Father or family who have lost an Esther. There are far too many.

Hug the ones you love!
