Book Review

Stella Naylor11/5/14

I didn't understand what it might feel like to live, knowing that you had terminal cancer, until I read The Fault in our Stars by John Green. Hazel Grace, the main character, has Thyroid cancer and her lungs, "suck at being lungs." Her mother forces her to go to a cancer support group because she thinks it'll help make her happier. The support group is where she meets Augustus Waters an ex-basketball player with osteosarcoma. The main theme of the novel is making the best of the worst. Hazel knows she won't live very much longer but she still faces everyday with courage. She makes the best of what she has. Hazel can really apreciate the good things in the world because she has gone through a lot of the worst. "Without pain, how could we know joy?" My favorite part of the book is the relationship between Augustus and Hazel. They make eachother so happy and love eachother so much. Hazel introduces her favorite book An Imperial Affliction to Augustus and he really likes it. He takes Hazel on a rather horrible picnic and tell her he wants to go to Amsterdam with her to meet the author of their favorite book. They want to meet the author (Peter Van Houten) for him to further explain what happens to the characters in the book after it ends. I think this shows how very much Augustus loves Hazel because he used his wish to take her on a trip. Also one of my favorite scenes is when Hazel first meets Augustus and she finds him quite charming and attractive. They talk outside after meeting at the cancer support group and are having a grand time when Augustus pulls out a sigarette. Hazel is stunned and is very upset until Augustus explains, "It's a metaphor, see: You put the killing thing right between you teeth, but you don't give it the power to do its killing"(20).
