The Fault in our Stars
Transcript of The Fault in our Stars
the world once they have passed away. The book's main characters obsess throughout the entire novel about the fictional book An Imperial Affliction by the fictional author Peter Van Houten. their bible AIA- Van Houten The book hangs over the shoulders of these characters and encompasses their greatest worries: what will become of their families and friends once they have died. Hazel Augustus Van Houten Isaac & Monica Augustus Waters is the gorgeous love interest and best friend of Hazel Grace. She meets him at cancer support group when her friend Isaac brings him in as a guest despite his being in remission for a few years. After suffering from osteosarcoma, Augustus lost his leg-not his lively, passionate spirit. He believes whole heartedly in seizing the day and living while you can and, with spontaneous bursts of romances and surges of adventure, Augustus instills a new sense of optimism in Hazel, willing her to keep living. Peter Van Houten is the eccentric American author turned recluse who wrote An Imperial Affliction, Hazel and Augustus’s favourite book. He is initially idolized by the young readers who have this concept of him being some supernatural, all-knowing genius with the answers to life, but turns out to be a huge disappointment. After years of living a quiet, secluded life in Amsterdam, Van Houten has become a bitter, skeptical alcoholic. Though he blames his isolated life on his hate of Americans, we later find out how he too has been affected by cancer. These two, young love birds are a model to Hazel and Augustus of what not to be. Though they desperately clung to the cheesy promise “always”, their long time relationship fell apart just before Isaac lost his other eye to cancer. They represent the inconvenient truth that nothing gold can stay. "The universe wants to be noticed." "we are all side effects of death" Hazel Grace Lancaster is John Green’s main character and narrator of The Fault in Our Stars. 16 years old and living off of an oxygen tank while battling the various side effects of thyroid cancer, she no longer attends public school and has become somewhat of a recluse. She reads the same book over and over again(An Imperial Affliction), watches re-runs of America’s Next Top Model marathons and only grudgingly (and at her mother’s request) attends support group meetings every Wednesday. Though she refuses to admit it, Hazel clearly feels defeated and lacks motivation, accepting the idea of complete and utter oblivion while finding most things to be futile. Though she claims that she is perfectly fine, it’s obvious that she’s not, until she meets Augustus Waters.
