In The Fault in Our Stars, Augustus Waters and Hazel Grace Lancaster meet at a horrible Support Group that Hazel's parents force her to go to. Augustus went one time, brought by a mutual friend named Isaac. Did I mention that the Support Group is for kids with cancer? Hazel has a cancer that makes her lungs fill up with fluids, so she has to carry an oxygen tank with her everywhere. Augustus has a type of cancer that effects his bones, causing tumors. On account of that, he had to lose his right leg. (Which makes his driving terrifying.) Isaac has neroblastoma, a cancer which has many forms, but in his case, he had to lose his eyesight. Anyways, after Hazel and Augustus meet, they are almost instant best friends and inseperable. They hang out all the time. And then Augustus does the nicest thing ever for Hazel, and she is forever grateful. I can't tell you much more because I don't want to ruin the book, but you should definitely read it. You'll be glad you did! If you're into romantic, tragic stories, this book is a great choice!

Rating:

"There will be a time when all of us are dead. All of us. There will be no human beings remaining to remember that anyone ever existed or that our species ever did anything. There will be no one left to remeber Aristotle or Cloepatra, let alone you. Everything we did and built and wrote and thought and discovered will be forgotten and all of this will have been for naught. Maybe this time is coming soon, and maybe it is a million years from now, but even if we survive the collapse of our sun, we will not survive forever. There was a time before organisms experienced conciousness, and there will be a time after. And if the inevitability of human oblivion worries you, I encourage you to ignore it. God knows that's what everyone else does."

When Gus told Hazel he fears oblivion, this was her response.

Point of View

First Person. The story is told from Hazel's perspective.

Plot

Book Talk

Genre:

Realistic fiction.This could have happened, but it probably didn't.

"My name is Hazel. Augustus Waters was the great star-crossed love of of my life. Ours was an epic love story, and I won't be able to get more than a sentence into it without disappearing into a puddle of tears. Gus knew. Gus knows. I will not tell you our love story, because like all real love stories, it will die with us. As it should. I'd hoped that he'd be eulogizing me, because there is no one I'd rather have. I can't talk about our love story, so I will talk about math. I am not a mathematician, but I know this. There is an infinite between 0 and 1. There's .1 and .12 and .112 and an infinite collection of others. Of course there is a bigger infinite set of numbers between 0 and 2, or between 0 and a million. Some infinities are bigger than other infinities. A writer we used to like taught us that. There are days, many days of them, when I resent the size of my unbounded set. I want more numbers than I'm likely to get, and God, I want more numbers for Augustus Waters than he got. But, Gus, my love, I cannot tell you how thankful I am for our little infinity. I wouldn't trade it for the world. You have me a forever within the numbered days, and I'm grateful."

Hazel's eulogy to Gus, when he said he wanted to attend his own funeral. They met up at the Literal Heart of Jesus.
