Transcript of The Fault in our Stars
The Fault in our Stars
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 "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."
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.
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.
The rising action in this story was perfect. It was the rising action everybody wanted to happen. Augustus told Hazel he was in love with her. He expressed his feelings for her, Then kissed her. There definitely could not have been a better rising action!
The falling action is when Augustus dies. You would never have expected Augustus to die. Hazel finds these papers he wrote to Van Houtten, and he tells about how much he loves her. and how extraordinary she is.
