Transcript of The Fault in our Stars

Prezi by Sara Binet The Fault in our Stars Setting The setting of The Fault in our Stars is a normal town (the name is not mentioned in the novel) for the first half of the book. The second half is taken place in Amsterdam. This book takes place in the present. I know this because there isn't anything that is futuristic, but they have things that wouldn't exist if this book was in past tense, like TVs and video games for blind people. Hazel Grace Lancaster Augustus Waters Augustus "Gus" Waters is a 17 year old boy who used to have a tumor in his leg. He was an excellent basketball player, until the hospital had to remove his leg and replace it with a fake one. Because of this, he is no longer in school either, he can't play basketball (even though he never really liked it anyway), and he is a reckless and TERRIBLE driver. My favorite thing about Gus is that he smokes cigarettes, and you would think, "why would a former cancer victim smoke?" Well, he never lights them! This is what he said about it: "You put an object of death right between your lips, but you don't give it the power to kill you." Conflict The main conflict in The Fault in our Stars is that both Hazel Grace and Gus are suffering badly from cancer, and they are both on the verge of death. Before they both met each other, they were getting better, but only because they were too cautious, and they weren't living the fun, crazy life that 16 year olds should live. When they meet each other, they start going out and having more fun. This makes them happier, but it is making their health much worse. By John Green Hazel Grace is a girl who suffers from cancer and clinical depression. She is 16 years old. Because of her cancer, she wears a tube in her nose that helps her breathe, but also scares children, making some of them even cry in fear. Since she was taken out of school at 13, she isn't very good at social skills, until one fateful day when she meets the... unique Augustus Waters. Climax The climax in The Fault in our Stars is when Gus has an attack, and at the hospital, an X-Ray shows that tumors have appeared all over his body, and that his chances of living are slim. He has to travel in a wheelchair, get a dose of medicine hooked up to him twice a day, and he is barely awake. One night, he calls up Hazel and Isaac, his blind best friend, to come to this church that they call "The Literal Heart of Jesus" to prepare a eulogy. Gus does this because he knows that he is going to die, and he wants to see what his funeral would be like, because he doesn't know whether the ghost form of himself would be able to see it. Theme The theme of The Fault in our Stars is to live your life to the fullest, like Gus and Hazel did. In the short time that they dated, not only did they become more experienced with the world around them, but Gus used his "cancer wish" to bring Hazel to Amsterdam to meet her favorite author (who turns out to be a drunk who thinks people with cancer are a waste of life, but its the thought that counts). Recommendation I would recommend this book to anyone who likes a good romance novel. If you're interested in books with a lot of action, then this book probably wouldn't be good for you. If you are looking for a good teardropper though, this book would be PERFECT for you.
