The Fault in Our Stars
Transcript of The Fault in Our Stars
"Late winter of my seventeenth year, my mother decided I was depressed, presumably because I rarely left the house, spent quite a lot of timein bed, read the same book over and over, ate infrequently, and devoted quite a bit of my abundant free time thinking about death."(Green 3)
Man vs Self
"I'm on a rollercoaster that only goes up, my friend." (Green 11)
Overall this was one of my favorite books, but the only negative being that it was very sad. I enjoyed how they got the point through that you should live life to the fullest. Even though to some people it may seem like a book about two teens having cancer, it really tells how the two teens in love forget about their major illness and make the most of their lives. I would recommended this book to anyone who enjoys sad yet uplifting, romantic, and humorous novels. Thank you for watching my prezi and hope you enjoyed it!!!
The Fault In our Stars is a novel based on two teens, Hazel Grace Lancaster, and Augustus Waters, who both are diagnossed with two types of cancer. Hazel with thyroid cancer and Augustus with osteosarcoma. One day Hazel's mom realizes Hazel's depression, and decides that instead of Hazel being such a homebody, her mom sends her out to the Public Support Group at her church. One of the days of the support group she meets a guy, Augustus Waters and instantly both are in love. Struggling with their diseases, they both have found something to live for...Each other. But will their diseases interferre with their brewing love for each other?
Man vs Man
One of the main conflicts throughout the book is between Augustus and his cancer. He is not fighting cancer itself, he is fighting the depression of dying, and having a prosthetic leg due to the osteosarcoma. Although his cancer may come back, but he still ignores himself having it and tries to live a normal life.
The main external conflict is between Isaac, a guy with eye cancer and only one eye, and his girlfriend, Monica. He is scheduled to have surgery for his other eye to be removed, so he will be totally blind. But the day before the surgery Monica dumps him without ever calling, texting, or any other way of getting in touch with him. Isaac takes this very offensively. He now feels angry and disappointed because he thought that they would be with each other forever. An example of his anger is when Augustus decides that they need a way to get back at her for what she did to poor Isaac. He asks Hazels for 4 dollars and they use the money to buy a carton of eggs. Then they drive to Monica's house where her green sports car is parked outside. They vandalize it by having Isaac, who is now blind, chuck eggs at the car. A quote from the story is "Ma'am, your daughter's car has been deservedly egged by a blind man. Please close the door or we'll be forced to call the police" (Green 229)
