The Fault In Our Stars

My all-time favorite book is The Fault In Our Stars. This book about two teenagers with terminal cancer lit up my world. Their love story began on the first day that they met.

Hazel and Gus 3

How beautiful it that?

Hazel and Gus 2

From then on, Hazel Grace had a true friend. Hazel always read the same book over, called An Imperial Affliction, written by an author named Peter Van Houten. Her wish was to always meet him; however, she had already used up her one dying wish to go to Disney World. This is when Augustus Waters admits that he has a crush on her. Augustus finds Peter Van Houten’s assistant and emails her. Later, when Peter has responded, he calls Hazel and reads her the email and Okay becomes their Always.

Augustus invites Hazel to go to the park where they share a moment. Augustus offers to use his one dying wish to take Hazel to Amsterdam to meet her favorite author.

When they get on the flight, Gus puts a cigarette in his mouth confirming to the flight attendant that he does not actually smoke but is just a metaphor. ‘You put the thing that does the killing right between your teeth, but you never give it the power to do its killing. It’s a metaphor.’ –The Fault In Our Stars, John Green.  On their night at Amsterdam, Hazel and Gus go out for dinner where he confesses his love for Hazel Grace.

‘I’m in love with you, and I know that love is just a shout into the void, and that oblivion is inevitable, and that we’re all doomed and that there will come a day when all our labor has been returned to dust, and I know the sun will swallow the only earth we’ll ever have, and I am in love with you.’ –The Fault In Our Stars, John Green.

John Green’s style of writing is unbelievable. He is descriptive in his own way and loves to express the characters feelings by words. The Fault In Our Stars is my favorite novelization written by Green.
