The Fault in Our Stars

The Fault in Our StarsGlog By: Christina HaubBy: John Green

Hazel Grace Lancaster has been living with cancer for three of her seventeen years of life. Despite this, she is a girl with a vibrant mind and incredible empathy for the position she puts her parents into having to care for her. Her cancer began as thyroid cancer but spread to her lungs, causing her to need to breathe oxygen from a tank at all times throughout the day. She attends a support group at a church; there she meets a friend named Isaac and a romantic interest named Augustus. Augustus has been in remission after losing his leg some years prior, so Hazel hesitates in starting a relationship with him, not wanting to hurt him if her illness takes another turn for the worse. She introduces Augustus to her favorite book, and he forms a plan in which they will travel to Amsterdam together using the "Wish" given to him by a foundation for children with cancer to meet the private and mysterious author and find out what happens after the book's end. They are able to take this trip, but when they arrive to meet the author he is drunk and ugly. At the end of the trip, Augustus reveals to Hazel that his cancer has come back and is much worse than the previous time. They return home and Hazel stays by his side until his death. The author attends Augustus's funeral and tries to apologize to Hazel; she realizes that his book, which is about a young girl with cancer, was based on his daughter who died. Hazel copes with Augustus's death, comforting herself with the strength of her family and a letter about her that Augustus sent to the author before his death.

Summary

Theme

The one major theme in the book the Fault in Our Stars I feel is love. Love is the definition of this book. This book is a love story but with extremely hard obstacles.

Characters

Hazel Grace Lancaster is the novel’s narrator and 16-year-old friend. A smart and remarkably conscientious girl, Hazel was diagnosed at age thirteen with a terminal form of thyroid cancer that has since spread to her lungs. She keeps most people at a distance, knowing her death will ultimately hurt them, until she falls in love with Augustus.l Augustus “Gus” Waters is the sixteen-year-old with osteosarcoma who becomes Hazel's boyfriend. Augustus has a sharp strong feeling for Hazel. Augustus almost immediately falls in love with Hazel after meeting her at the Support Group.

The Fault in Our Stars starts out in Indianapolis. It then works its way to Amsterdam.

Yes, I do recommend this book to people. I would recommend this book mostly for girls ages (10-16). I would do so because it is a great inspiring love story for how a young boy (Augustus), falls deeply in love with a girl (Hazel). While both of them have different types of cancer. It is a great romance book. Also it might make you shed some tears when you are completely done reading it.
