Life & Death
“I couldn’t be mad at him for even a moment, and only now that I loved a grenade did I understand the foolishness of trying to save others from my own impending fragmentation: I couldn’t unlove Augustus Waters. And I didn’t want to.” - Hazel, Chapter 13.
“What am I at war with? My cancer. And what is my cancer? My cancer is me. The tumors are made of me. They’re made of me as surely as my brain and my heart are made of me. It is a civil war, Hazel Grace, with a predetermined winner.” - Augustus, Chapter 13
“There is only one thing in this world shittier than biting it from cancer when you are sixteen, and that’s having a kid who bites it from cancer.” - Hazel, Chapter 1
““It isn’t even possible to walk in these? I mean, I would just die—” and then stopped short, looking at me as if to say I’m sorry, as if it were a crime to mention death to the dying.” - Kaitlyn & Hazel, Chapter 3
Peter Van Houten
* Their houses
John Green was inspired to write this book from the time he was working at the Champlain Children's hospital and from a friend who had cancer.
The novel was published in 2012.
"Damn near genius...
The Fault in Our Stars
is a love story, one of the most genius and moving ones in American fiction, but it's also an existential tragedy of tremendous intelligence and courage and sadness." -TIME Magazine
Hazel, who has thyroid cancer attends support group which is led by Patrick. This is where they are counselled and also discuss and pray for theirs and others health. This is the place where Isaac is first introduced in the story and where Hazel first meets Augustus.
Hazel is limited from doing many activities.
* has to carry her oxygen tank wherever she goes
* standing for too long or running
This increases the desire to do more things in the short period of time they have in life.
(coming of age)
After the funeral Hazel met Peter Van Houten and talked to him discovering more about him and his family.
Hazel found out about the letter which Augustus had written and discovered that he wrote it to Peter. This raised hope in Hazel.
Augustus's cancer came back before he left for Amsterdam. Hazel did not know, but the rest of the characters did.
She found out the day after they went to see Peter Van Houton
