I had been hearing a lot about this book too. Whenever I am unable to read a book that is this hyped, I see if it made into a movie yet and try to watch it instead! But one of my
This is the only book that I read and simply chose never to watch the movie version of it. I’ve got nothing against the movie or the actors playing in it. It is just that, I am pretty sure they can never match up to the Hazel and Augustus in my head! This also the only book in a really long time, which I picked and completed in 2 days. I read the book straight through the nights!
I don’t want to spoil it for anyone guys! The book is truly beautiful. So I will just put down stuff that is already known about the book.
It is about a girl named Hazel who is suffering from terminal thyroid cancer. Her mom encourages her to join a cancer patient support group where she meets the charming Augustus (A.K.A Gus). Gus has recently recovered from Bone Cancer. They fall in love. Even though they both know that their love story will be short-lived due to Hazel’s condition. Then comes the twist in the story and then the end, which I won’t say anything about.
Anyone that’s alive and able to read must read this
Excerpts from the book
“As he read, I fell in love the way you fall asleep: slowly, and then all at once.”John Green
“Oh, I wouldn’t mind, Hazel Grace.It would be a privilege to have my heart broken by you.”John Green
“You gave me a forever within the numbered days, and I’m grateful.”John Green
Hazel suffers from terminal illness, she knows her life is short and has come to terms with it. The striking thing about the story is Hazel’s mom Frannie, a strong woman who gives strength to her daughter every day! Frannie celebrates Hazel’s birthday
How can any mother be that strong enough to watch her child slowly die in front of her eyes? I only dreamt once that my daughter fell off our bike and I cried for one whole hour holding my daughter in my arms.
I am sure there are hundreds of such brave and beautiful woman all over the world in real life. Who smile and stay strong for their husband, children, and relatives etc. who are suffering from terminal illnesses. And they cry only in the darkness of the night, silently into their pillows! More strength to such women!
I am not crying……
Lesson- Love is incredible. The lovers may live and die but the love, it never dies!
