“I want you to know that I’m both happy and sad and I’m still trying to figure out how that could be.” A quote from The Perks of being a wallflower by Stephen Chbosky. That’s how I feel about the world/life in general happy and sad, but when I read books I’m more happy than sad. The Fault in our stars takes you on a rollercoaster of emotions that builds you up then breaks you down so that you realize the world isn’t a wish granting factory.
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 gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel’s story is about to be completely rewritten. – Goodreads
There is little to say about this novel its simple amazing, eye-opening and overwhelming. John Green words flow from the pages into your mind and you feel everything Hazel -the protagonist- is feeling and you want nothing more than her to be happy and healthy.
Augustus Waters makes you believe in love even if you don’t. For that glimpse second in time while reading it gives you hope that maybe the world isn’t as bad as it seems. When bad stuff happens its only the universe wanting to be notice.
The thing I love most about the book it portrays real life as we know it. It does not necessarily have a happy ending, there is no happy ever after. There is no happy ending in life, we live to die. Dying is a side effect of living, we all are going to die.
I love this book and I recommend it to everyone, even if your not a book person it’s just one of those that you have to read.
There are a lot of inspirational quotes from TFIOS these are some of my favourite’s:
I fell in love the way you fall asleep: slowly, and then all at once.
My thoughts are stars I cannot fathom into constellation.
Sometimes, you read a book and it fills you with this weird evangelical zeal, and you become convinced that the shattered world will never be put back together unless and until all living humans read the book.
You don’t get to choose if you get hurt in this world but you do have some say in who hurts you.
What a slut time is. She screws everybody.
The marks humans leave are too often scars.
It would be a privilege to have my heart broken by you.
Some people don’t understand the promises they’re making when they make them,” I said.
“Right, of course. But you keep the promise anyway. That’s what love is. Love is keeping the promise anyway.
Grief does not change you, Hazel. It reveals you.
Without pain, how could we know joy?’ This is an old argument in the field of thinking about suffering and its stupidity and lack of sophistication could be plumbed for centuries but suffice it to say that the existence of broccoli does not, in any way, affect the taste of chocolate.
You realize that trying to keep your distance from me will not lessen my affection for you. All efforts to save me from you will fail.
There are many more quotes but I’ll stick with these.
How I feel before I read TFIOS.
