Hello random people who are reading this!
I need to do a paperwork on a book. Any book that I want.
Most of the idiots in my class are planning to do it on "Diary of A Wimpy Kid". I guess this is the only book they have ever read.
After 5 seconds of thinking, I decided to do it on the beautiful book "The Fault in Our Stars".
Most of the books that I read are fantasy, and this was a nice change. Someone had recommended me to read it, and I admit, when I started to read I was a little bit sceptical about this book. It seemed very depressive. Of course it would be, almost all the charecters in the book have/had cancer.
But soon I fell in love with this book. I thought it would be easier to explain why, it's not easy at all XD But I will try anyway.
This book is no less then brilliant. Although it's not intense like many other books that I like, this book had got me for something else.
I must say, this is the very first book that made me cry, and also the first book that made me cry and laugh at the same time.
This is not an ordinary "cancer book", which says that the sick child fought in bravery until the touching but inspiring end.
This book pressents death exactly the way it is: There are no touching and heroic death scenes. It just sort of happens, in the middle of your life. I know it is very pessimistic and quite scary, but you can lose your beloved ones just like that, without a warning, and you might not even be there for them. I don't know why I liked it. I guess it felt so realistic and honest.
Gohn Green is a brilliant writor, who can break your heart with a tiny sense of humor.
You most probably think that you couldn't identify with one of the charecters because of their cancer, but in some point of the book you will have to, I promise.
Also I liked the way this book is written: Past tense, like a told story, from the view point of the main charecter: Hazel Grace Lancaster.
You can read about her brilliant insights on life, death and love.
It has high language, and slang, which make the book and the charecters feel inteligent and real.
This is just one of the books that are meant to be qouted and talked about, and this is mainly why I am spending my time writing this when I have many other things to do. I want to talk about it.
So if someone wasn't too lazy to read it all and got to this point, first of all, thank you for wasting your time so stupidly, and secondly, you are welcomed to comment your opinion of TFiOS, so I'll have someone to talk to instead of talking to myself (which is really nice because no one can speak out of tern oR disagree with me, but also makes the whole buisness very pointless.)
One more thing: I fell in love with Augustus waters and his metaphors. I hope you will too
