The Fault in Our Stars

Chapter 11-15When they land, Hazel, Augustus, and Hazel’s mother are picked up by cab and got to see a little of Amsterdam. They notice the small streets and the canals. Later that night Augustus takes Hazel out a surprise date at a fancy restaurant called Oranjee. They sit sipping champagne, watching the canal and the petals from trees blow and dine underneath the stars. The next day, Hazel and Augustus go to Peter Van Houten’s house to ask him questions. They soon realize that Peter isn’t at all the person they thought he would be. He is a mean, drunk old man who says very hurtful things to them. Hazel is crushed to find out what her favorite author is like. Augustus and Hazel soon end up leaving and going to the Anne Frank house. There they share a very special kiss and in the end get everyone's approval. Later in the trip, Augustus has a huge secret to tell Hazel. He has cancer is back and it has basically spread everywhere. Hazel is crushed when she finds out because her parents knew before she did. When they get back to Indiana, they help Isaac get back at his girlfriend out of revenge. From there Augustus’ health starts to decline quickly.

Chapter 16-20As Augustus gets weaker, their relationship gets stronger. Hazel visits him often. But one day she came over and noticed that he was getting much worse. She went down to his bedroom to see him and she saw him in a pee puddle in bed not knowing what happened. A couple nights later he called her. He was stuck outside a gas station at 2:35 a.m. where his G-tube was messed up and he needed help. When Hazel got there she learned it was infected and he had to go the hospital. A couple days later he came home but he was in a hospital bed in his living room and had to be in a wheel chair. At this point Hazel becomes very close to the whole Waters family. A little while later Augustus had his last day. He wanted her to meet him and Isaac in “the literal heart of Jesus” for his practice funeral. They worked on their speeches for his ceremony.

Chapter 1-5Hazel Grace Lancaster is 16 and had thyroid cancer. Since the cancer, Hazel has to constantly have an oxygen tank with her because her lungs “suck” as she says. Hazel’s mother has her in a support group that she hates going to, being at, and sitting in a circle in the literal “heart of Jesus” mosaic on the floor. One day when reluctant to go, but forced to, Hazel notices a new person at the meeting. After staring at each other for the whole support group she soon learns that the boy she has meet is a quirky, yet handsome Augustus Waters, age 17 who use to have osteosarcoma. They soon befriend each other but very quickly they become more than friends. After Hazel goes to Augustus’ house to watch a movie, she soon realizes that she actually likes him. Augustus starts to read An Imperial Affliction for Hazel, while she reads his book The Prince of Dawn. They soon start bonding over the book and even emailing the author of An Imperial Affliction, Peter Van Houten and having a conversation with him. They even help Isaac, a mutual friend, with his break up and losing his sight from cancer. Augustus soon learns Hazel’s great obsession with the book, An Imperial Affliction, and is willing to give his wish away so that he and Hazel can go to Amsterdam to meet Van Houten himself and so he answer all their questions about the book.

Chapter 21-25Eight days after the practice funeral Augustus dies. Hazel had a hard time sleeping and coping for days. At his wake, she walked up to Augustus dead body and kissed him and gave him a pack of cigarettes to take with him to heaven. When she turned around she saw Van Houten there. She later found out Augustus invited him to the funeral. Since Hazel only had Isaac to hang out with, she starts to miss him more. When talking to Isaac she realized that she never got Augustus’s sequel to An Imperial Affliction (just for Hazel). She went searching for it everywhere. While looking, Hazel met Van Houten again. After speaking to him, she told him he needs to straighten out his life. Then she realized that the sequel was mailed to Van Houten. When she had emailed his assistant to send it, she eventually saw it wasn’t a sequel at all, but a letter about her and all of her perfections and how much he loved her.

“My thoughts are stars I cannot fathom into constellations.” (311)

“I believe the universe wants to be noticed. I think the universe is inprobably biased toward the consciousness, that it rewards intelligence in part because the universe enjoys its elegance being observed. ” (223)

“Some infinities are bigger than other infinities.” (233)

“As he read, I fell in love the way you fall asleep: slowly, and then all at once.” (125)

Chapter 6-10When Hazel’s mother is told that Augustus is using his wish on Hazel is not totally sold on the idea. Than later that night, Hazel’s lungs begin to fill with fluid and she must be hospitalized. She sits in the hospital room and thinks about what she would do to Augustus Waters if she was dead. She could become a grenade and hurt him like his past girlfriend who died of cancer. Hazel stayed in the hospital for a several days. When she finally got out, she talked to Augustus and was told that the Make A Wish Foundation would reschedule their trip to Amsterdam. Hazel’s mother has a second opinion about her daughter going on the trip. She wanted to talk to Hazel’s cancer team first. They talked about how Hazel will never get better and that she will be like how she is now forever. Hazel’s mother preferred her not to go, but eventually agreed, after realizing how much it would mean to her. Augustus and Hazel soon leave for the Netherlands, they both are not accustom to the special treatment. When they are on the plane watching movies, she starts to realize how much she really likes him.
