The Fault in Our Stars

review Û The Fault in Our Stars 105 Ous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group Hazel's story is about to be completely rewrittenInsightful bold irreverent and raw The Fault in. At age twenty two John Green worked as a student chaplain in a children s hospital Let s take a moment and consider all the implications of that and why he is making a colossal understatement when he described the experience as devastating That was about twelve years ago and Green has said in interviews that because of this experience he s spent twelve years trying to write a book about kids with cancer not poster children of strength and courage and illness granted wisdom but real kids and their families and friends who have to cope with the fact that they will die young All novels are personal but Green s novels seem to me to be especially so But this one is personal in a different way With this novel Green isn t trying to exorcize the memory of the girl who stomped on his heart in high school This goes deeper than high school romance and Manic Pixie Dream Girl angst This is about life death illness love heroism and how a sixteen year old is supposed to deal with the fact that she will die and leave everyone she loves behind Maybe it s just because I ve been watching vlogbrothers videos for four years and feel like I m actually acuainted with John Green but this is the most deeply personal novel I ve ever read This is not as Hazel Lancaster might say a Cancer Book None of the cancer patients in this story have a wisdom beyond their years and they do not stoically accept the fact that they will die or fight heroically Hazel Lancaster a terminal sixteen year old who has to carry an oxygen tank everywhere because my lungs suck at being lungs is refreshingly real not manic not a pixie not a dream girl She reads Great Books and watches America s Next Top Model marathons Augustus Waters her amputee friend wants desperately to leave a lasting impression on the world and philosophizes about heroism and his favorite book is a novelization of a video game can I say how much I love that an author can establish a character s intelligence without telling us that they love reading Austen yes Stephenie Meyer I m looking at you Everything here is real especially the diseases There isn t any bullshit about dying gracefully here because cancer is ugly and unpleasant and Green makes you feel Hazel s lungs struggling to breathe and the pain and see the vomit and urine Remember how in A Walk to Remember Mandy Moore has been secretly dying of leukemia the whole time but looks great even on her deathbed Nicholas Sparks can fuck right off for that insult to real cancer patients Most importantly Hazel and Augustus are not defined by their cancer It consumes their lives but it doesn t define them On every page it s clear this is a story told by someone who hasn t known just one person with cancer but has seen a multitude of children with terminal diseases and has tried to find some way to comfort them and their families It s for that reason that I don t feel like I can review this like a normal book John Green didn t write this story for me and so I don t feel like I have any place saying that it s amazing and beautiful and heartbreaking And I certainly can t criticize any of its minor faults All I can say really is that you have to read this for yourself and go from there Okay you guys know me better than that I have one big complaint which I will describe here and all I ask is that you remember that I still gave this five stars Augustus Waters in the first few chapters comes off as a pretentious douche When Hazel first meets him at a cancer support group they re talking afterwards and Augustus takes out a cigarette and puts it in his mouth Hazel who you ll recall is dying because her lungs cannot function freaks out even though you HAD FREAKING CANCER you give money to a company in exchange for the chance to acuire YET MORE CANCER Augustus explains that he doesn t smoke the cigarettes he just puts them in his mouth no really because They don t kill you unless you light themAnd I ve never lit one It s a metaphor see you put the killing thing right between your teeth but you don t give it the power to do its killing Augustus I love you but you re full of shit right there Notice how he didn t address Hazel s perfectly valid point that by buying cigarettes Augustus is giving money to the people who cause cancer Because here s the thing you can say to a cigarette company I m buying your cigarettes as a metaphor but I won t light them so I m taking away their power and they ll stop listening at I m buying your cigarettes because that s all they care about And it s a shit metaphor in any case you can walk around a mall with a shotgun and explain to people that because it s unloaded you ve taken away its power but you re still going to get arrested So that was annoying as was Augustus s general air of overly charming pretentious skeeziness in the beginning But I forgive him for it because lest we forget he is seventeen If his character was twenty two he d be the most obnoxious jackass on the planet but because he s just a kid I was willing to forgive him Still hate the cigarette thing though

review Û The Fault in Our Stars 105 Despite the tumor shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years Hazel has never been anything but terminal her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis But when a gorge. Update 25062014 Since I ve been receiving a lot of cyber bullies and hate messages I m going to clarify few things Firstly this is a negative review of the book and it has got a lot of potential to infuriate the fans If you think that your opinion is the only opinion that exists on earth and that no one should dislike your favourite book then I would suggest you to avoid this review Stop harassing me Why can t you get it through your thick skulls that everyone has different opinions they re going to interpret books differently from you and stop being selfish to think that just because you loved a book that means the whole world should love it This world is full of people with differing opinions differing thoughts and differing likes and differing dislikes learn to respect them even if you don t agree with what they have to say about your favourite books Just because you love a particular book that I hate doesn t make you a good person and me a bad person It simply shows that people like different things Every reader has the freedom to dissect and critically analyse any book and write their thoughts on it in their own review space without the fear of anyone or fans bossing them into writing what the fandom wants Critically analysing books and criticising problematic aspects of any reading material prevents people from being passive readersShakespeare and JK Rowling too have their own share of critics then what makes Green s book flawless that it s not allowed to be criticised Stop cyber bullying and trolling me Your hate messages and death threats will show much of your personality than your love for this book Remember every time you comment any bullshit here you re giving your own fandom a bad name and my review popularity Also your hate messages aren t going to put me down I m a strong girl and I m always going to stand up for what I believe in come hell or high water I don t fear anyone and no one can ever force me to follow their orders like a puppet especially not a fandom where most of the fans are immature cyber bullies who can t respect other s opinions Also I ve caught fans making fake accounts to troll my review this shows me that they are big cowards who hide their faces and send me spiteful comments Lastly I m NOT shaming anyone for loving this book You can love whatever you want to and believe in whomever you want to I have no problem with people who genuinely love this book I have problems with those who think readers should not have the rights to express their dislike for any book I have problems with those who approve of and participate in cyber bullying reviewers who write negative reviews on their favourite books I have problems with those who refuse to acknowledge the fact that their favourite books can have flaws and not everyone s going to love them I have problems with those who come here to shove their opinions down my throat Do you find anyone who hated this book shoving their opinions in comments of positive reviews Then what makes you think that you have the rights to troll negative reviewsAlright now let s begin with the review WARNING MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD EXPECTATION REALITY So I happily bought the hardcover of The Fault in our stars back in December 2012 after seeing the high average GR ratings and raving reviews saying how beautiful life changing thought provoking and blah blah it is Surprisingly this book was so special that it became the first book that I slammed on the wall twice after reading it It didn t only disappoint me but also angered me I m surprised to find that harsh critics are swallowing up this trash and calling it a masterpiece Ugh I m going to make a list of everything I hate about this book that earned it the topmost place on my list of Worst books ever The characters Hazel and Augustus are the flattest cardboard cut outs I have ever seen in any book Both of them were like 60 years old stuck in some teenager s bodies making them very boring and unlikable Hazel was such an annoying stupid and pretentious Mary Sue that I wanted to punch her right in the face One great example of her stupidity Why are breakfast foods breakfast foodsLike why don t we have curry for breakfast A nonhot boy stares at you relentlessly and it is at best awkward and at worst a form of assaultBut a hot boy well Augustus and Hazel have the same boring pretentious know it all and indistinguishable personality Hazel is the female version of Augustus no I m not going to call him affectionately with Gus and he is the male version of Hazel These two characters meld together and have no depth at all I couldn t connect with them I felt no pain and sympathy for them and they annoyed me so much that I wanted to stab them Romance It fell from the sky Seriously I don t get what s so beautiful about the relationship between them They both fall in love within seconds just after laying eyes on each other love at first sight The romance is undeveloped and it comes from nowhere I was baffled when Hazel accepted to go to Augustus s house just minutes after meeting him WHAT THE HELL How stupid can you be You fall for a guy s words whom you met just few minutes ago and agree to go to his house What if he were a murderer or rapist Not to mention that the kissing scene in Anne Frank s house was so effing disgusting Anne Frank s house is considered to be a place of remembrance a place where 2 families hid during the dark days of Holocaust If anyone makes out at such a revered site they would be kicked out regardless of who or what they are People present around will be disgusted they won t stand and watch much less clap for the lovely couple Writing Cheesy Emotionless Terrible Want to hear some favourite uotes of mine My thoughts are stars I cannot fathom into constellations Why compare your thoughts to stars and constellations sighs Some infinities are bigger than other infinities That s the thing about pain It demands to be feltYeah that s the thing about chocolate it demands to be eaten I m in love with you and I m not in the business of denying myself the simple pleasure of saying true things 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 view spoiler hide spoiler

review Û The Fault in Our Stars 105 Our Stars is award winning author John Green's most ambitious and heartbreaking work yet brilliantly exploring the funny thrilling and tragic business of being alive and in love. I must be clear from the beginning This is perhaps the most personal review I have written My choice of stars was difficult for this I am a self confessed John Green fan I believe he is amongst the best of not only YA but fiction writers out there in general This is a beautifully written book There is very little to complain about in terms of style plot character etc However I couldn t in all good conscience give this any higher because it sits so badly with me I have let this novel marinate for a couple of days now before writing this and I just keep coming back to the same issues NamelyWas this John Green s story to tellIt is the human condition to attempt to find hope in hopeless situations But let me attempt to explain how watching a 17 year old fade away truly feels Because when the wit and words are stripped away I am not sure John did thatIt is endless It is an unavoidable and uncontrollable and an all encompassing darkness where no hope or life or explanations existThere are absolutely no life lessons to be gained from watching a 17 year old cease to exist There is no comfort The lessons that some may claim you can achieve through the darkest night of the soul reveal most of humanity for the selfish narcissistic beings we areI have come to believe there is a special kind of cruelty behind the perfectly cross stitched encouragement Those things are for the ones left over trying to make sense of the senselessWhilst I believe this novel acknowledges that It tries not to as the main protagonists claimed theirselves set the victims of disease up as typical heroic worldly wise characters it still reads like a novel attempting to bring euilibrium out of disaster The victims ultimately still are wise beyond their years This it seems is an assumed side effect of a teenager coming to terms with their mortality They use metaphors and pretentious poetry and a sharp wit and are wholly unbelievable as real life teenagers They are constructs of an ideal They are the literary version of Dawson s Creek using SAT vocabulary and existential navel gazing whilst simultaneously slamming the typical genre for using its characters to do the sameHaving lived this first hand once with a brother who ceases to exist at 17 and a second time with a brother who is currently 2 years NEC I am all too familiar with the need for light hearted humour at what may feel like the most inappropriate of times But what differs from that and attempting to write a disease ridden novel that attempts to make you laugh is apparently personal experience I have the right to sit around a Christmas table laughing somewhat hysterically at nothing My living brother has the right to crack UNO ball jokes whenever the opportunity arises But none of the readers of this novel who have not experienced the kind of loss depicted here have a right to laugh at any of it You can not claim it as your own unless it is yours and in my mind that is what humour does It is not appropriate for me to laugh along with eye jokes and blind jokes because they are not my jokes I am merely a voyeur in another persons tragedy I lay no claim to having the understanding of the experience necessary to allow for laughterAgain let me make clear I can not approach this book outside of my personal experience Of course in reality I do not believe you have to have experienced everything to laugh at a joke But in terms of purposefully trying to create humour in a novel that is fundamentally tragic for an audience that is mostly YA I struggle with I struggle with it because the empty platitudes that are trying so hard to be subverted in this novel are still being created It is still suggesting there can be lightness and humour within the terminally dark and it is suggesting it to people who have never experienced the terminally darkThis read like a novel where the author has truly witnessed the emptiness of teenage terminal illness and thankfully appears to have become considerate and thoughtful for it As opposed to erring on the side of platitudesBut it still read as a novel attempting to explain where the hope in hopeless situations arePerhaps because it is too raw a subject for me or perhaps because the novel really is sentimental and gratuitous granted in a different way from the norm of this genre but this is not a book I would recommendFor sufferers for family members of sufferers or for well meaning people seeking to understand the hopelessness of some situations I would recommend it for none
