They're flight back to America is spent in a comforting silence. Hazel soon realizes that Gus's last 'good days' are upon them and she needs to be with him. Unexpectedly Gus calls upon Hazel and Issac to write his their eulogies that they will read at his funeral. Hazel says that he gave her forever within a number of days and she is grateful for their little infinity. Augustus Waters dies 8 days after his pre-funeral. At his funeral Hazel soon finds Van Houston amongst the morning faces, saying that he is sorry in which Hazel tells him to go home, sober up, and write a sequel. Issac asks Hazel if she ever got Gus's sequel that he was working on and she says no as she thought Gus was far too sick as to have been writing her a sequel. She asks his parents and they say they did find a sheet of paper in his room. Hazel realizes that it is not a squeal but a note written to Van Houston, saying that Van Houston may be a good witter but a bad person and Gus may be a bad witter but a good person and that he likes that his thought cannot be put together and that "his thoughts are stars he cannot fathom into constellations".

About the Author
Although this book is labeled as a 'YA' novel, it does have complex and abstract themes. One reoccurring theme is that you have to leave your mark on the world without leaving a scar. Another is that some infinities are longer than other infinities and that a life time can be made in limited days.
Thank you for watching! I would highly recommend this book to anyone! It works or all age levels; teen to adult. I was thoroughly impressed because I am usually not one for realistic fiction and this happens to be within my top 5 favorite books and I read a lot of books. Give this book a try okay? Okay. Listen to the first chapter read by the author himself in the video to the side.
Hazel is stuck at home until one day her mother forces her to go to her usual support group that Hazel dreads. Upon Hazel's arrival she finds someone new, Augustus Waters. Through all of the meeting she cannot shake the feeling that he is watching her, which he is . After the group Hazel and Gus say goodbye to their mutual friend, Issac. Gus spontanelously invites Hazel to his house where Hazel expresses her love one book 'An Imperial Affliction', in which there is no ending and Hazel feels is the only book the will ever get her, and Gus promises to read it. After Gus finishes the book,without Hazel knowing, he emails the author about the ending of the book when the author, Peter Van Housten, invites the two to come to his home in Amsterdam. Gus and Hazel both happily agree until tradgey strikes.
As they approach the home of their literary hero, Hazel is appalled at the sight she sees upon; a drunken man with no appreciation for anyone or anything.

Hazel is frustrated and she demands to know what happen to the characters in 'An Imperial Affliction' and he states that she is just a waste of existence and that she will just die sooner or later. Hazel leaves annoyed with Gus trailing behind. Augustus says he will write her a squeal that "will be that anything that drunk can write".
