Gus's bestfriend, eventually good friends with Hazel
Loses his eyesight from cancer, girlfriend breaks up with him
Emotional: ""Well, I believe in true love," Isaac said. "And I love her. And she promised. She promised me always." (4.96)
Break up leads to anger: " "Isaac stomped on them and screamed while Augustus and I stood a few feet away bearing witness to the madness"(4.107)
experiences many incredibly difficult experiences for a young teenager, including loss of love, and even worse – the death of a loved one
Water: makes life possible but the fluid in her lungs (which she refers to as water) is killing her. Augustus Waters makes life possible for Hazel, by showing her that she can still live her life even through her disease. Water is present in Augustus in both his eyes (which were blue) and his name.

"smoking cigarettes"- "...it's a metaphor, see: You put the killing thing right between your teeth, but you don't give it the power to do it's killing
Hazel and Gus both start the same movie at the same time, but Augustus' starts before hers does. Implies that Augustus knew more about the future than Hazel did, since he already knew about his disease. He knew about what was happening in the movie first, and he knew what was going to happen to him before Hazel did.
What Worked
Point of View
Imagery ""As he read, I fell in love the way you fall asleep; Slowly, and then all at once." - Hazel
Humor: "What a slut time is. She screws everybody."-Van Houten & quote on page 4
What Didn't
The ending
Author of
An Imperial Affliction
-Hazel's favorite book
Washed-up, solitary alcoholic living in Amsterdam
Rude, abrasive, & utterly drunk because meeting was a surprise
Had daughter who died of cancer; served as basis of book
Lidewij comments about him: "Circumstance has made him so cruel" (12, 154)
Cares about children with cancer; can sympathize
Justifiably abrasive on outside because that's how he copes with loss
Seeing two reminds him of things that are painful in his life
"I was trying to provide you with comfort, I suppose, which I should have known better than to attempt..." (12, 120)
The Struggles in Life
Love Triumphs Over Hardship
Coping With Death of Loved One
"That's part of what I like about the book in some way. It portrays death truthfully. You die in the middle of your life, in the middle of a sentence. But I do God, I do really want to know what happens to everyone else. That's what I asked him in my letters. But he, yeah, he never replied." 67
