With an astounding $48.2 million debut, it’s safe to say many of you cried your way through a viewing of The Fault in Our Stars over the weekend. While the financial success of the popular film is unquestionably conclusive, an online debate has been stirring regarding the age old question of book vs. movie.
A number of Fault in Our Stars fans are claiming that the film adaptation of John Green’s novel is better than the book. Other fans, staunch supporters of the written word, remain loyal to the source material.
Which side are you on? Team Book or Team Film? Here are a sampling of fan tweets for those of you still on the fence!
Tfios was okay… a bit disappointed tho. The book is still waaaay better than the movie. 😊—

tfios book was a million times better than the movie, and that's coming from me, someone who doesn't like to read.—

Like you know how usually you read the book and it's better than the movie? TFIOS movie is really not that far behind the book it's so good.—

We believe this fan tweet sums up the entire argument rather nicely:
Nerdfighters, everyone has their own opinion and can love both the book AND the movie for different (or the same!) reasons. :)—
