Despite the tumor shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years Hazel has never been anything but terminal her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis But when a gorge I HATE this book Absolutely hate it Not just from the bottom of my heart which would literally mean my ventricles and so no but with my whole heart I hate it hate it hate itI hate the fact that it made me laugh so hard I hate the fact that it made me smile so muchI hate the fact that it made me chuckle so profuselyI hate the fact that it gifted me with so much Laughter Smiles and Chuckles when I was expecting to come face to face with tragedy at any momentit changed my expectations made me believe in Something which did not happenor maybe did happenI hate the fact that while Hazel Grace fell in love the way you fall asleep slowly and then all at once I just fell no warning no time to process the myriad emotions coursing through me nope nothing just a huge endless void filled fall and then a sudden crash that took my breath away like literallyI hate the fact that I fell in love with this bound to end in oblivion bound to end in disaster boy who stared with blue blue eyes and put the killing thing right between his teeth but never gave it the power to do its killing Putting a cigarette right between your teeth and never lighting it yes that s Augustus Waters for you people a guy huge on metaphors and symbolismthat hopeless boyI hate the fact that when I least expected it the story the words just grabbed me and pulled me in so deep that even the thought of ever resurfacing never entered my mindI hate that the fact that right in the middle of my dance in the rain of laughter dry wit and humour without any warning without any lightning as it s precedent this thunder would stun me startle me wipe the smile right off my face and sober me up wake me up from the intoxication of the very real yet false jocularity spun by them a humour which was nothing but human tragedy waiting to happen and had already happened in disguise and then push me back into that rain to dance againI hate the fact that I m not making my much sense right nowthat right now my thoughts are stars I can t fathom into constellations And yes all the hate above is a metaphor a symbolic word for love weird right But right now I can t bring myself to say that I love this bookI don t I don t I don t yes I do I do I doSo deep breath it s a story of a girl named Hazel Grace Lancaster a girl diagnosed with thyroid cancer at the age of 13 who s still alive at 16 thanks to a miracle drug which didn t work it s miracle in about 70% of the people but it did work in her So even though her lungs suck at being lungs she s still alive and well not kicking but breathing with difficulty because remember her lungs suck at being lungs but breathing nonetheless She s been nothing but a terminal case ever since her diagnosis The doctors are simply finding ways of keeping her alive rather than removing the cancer ridden lungs and replacing it with a new one because let s face it her chances of surviving such an operation are like next to nothing and why waste a good pair of lungs on a given bound to fail body So Hazel has never been anything but terminal her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosisEnter Augustus Waters He s 17 gorgeous in remission and very frankly and much to her surprise interested in her It s a match made in Cancer Kid Support Group in the Literal Heart of Jesus you ll know what that means when you read the bookyou ll laugh trust me you will He is a tenured professor in the Department of Slightly Crooked Smiles with a dual appointment in the Department of Having a Voice That Made My Skin Feel More Like Skin He s the unexpected hot gorgeous twist in her storya story which is about to be completely rewrittenTheir story begins with a staring contesthe stares at herSo she stares backbecause let s face itSpoiler Alert She winsAnd it progresses into something brilliant something as bright as the stars into Something with a capital SI hate this book This needs indefinite repetitions I hate itI hate the fact that I fell in love with their always Okay I hate the fact that Hazel Grace took the words right out of my mouth when she said what she said about being a vegetarian I want to minimise the number of deaths I am responsible for and about not knowing what s cool I take a lot of pride in not knowing what s cool I hate the fact that I fell in love with this blue eyed boy who drove horrifically and his cheesy and yet very endearing attempts to be Prince Charmingbut so with himthe surprised excited and innocent side of him May I see you again he asked There was an endearing nervousness in his voiceI smiled SureTomorrow he askedPatience grasshopper I counseled You don t want to seem overeagerRight that s why I said tomorrow he said I want to see you again tonight But I m willing to wait all night and much of tomorrow I hate the fact that Hazel Grace felt like a grenade and all she wanted to do was minimise the casualities when not if but when she blew upI hate the fact that I felt sorry for a lonely swing seta Desperately Lonely Swing Set Which Needed a Loving Homeor maybe it was simply a Lonely Vaguely Pedophilic Swing Set Which Sought the Butts of Childrenand the fact that I absolutely love this sentenceThe Lonely Swing Set or maybe Just Vaguely PedophilicAnd even though I fell in love the way you fall from a cliff or a building don t really know how that feelssince I ve never done thatI hate the way she fell in loveI hate this kissbecause for who so firm that cannot be seduced And then we were kissing My hand let go of the oxygen cart and I reached up for his neck and he pulled me up by my waist onto my tiptoes As his parted lips met mine I started to feel breathless in a new and fascinating way The space around us evaporated and for a weird moment I really liked my body this cancer ruined thing I d spent years dragging around suddenly seemed worth the struggle worth the chest tubes and the PICC lines and the ceaseless bodily betrayal of the tumors I hate the love letter she wrote himSpoiler Alert It s a Venn diagram love letterI hate the fact that she did not agree with Maslow s Hierarchy of Needs in which Abraham Maslow an American psychologist claimed that certain needs must be met before you can even have other kinds of needs Something like thisUnless and until your needs of the previous level have been fulfilled you don t even think about the needs of the next level Of course like all psychological theories this one too cannot be generalized or accepted universally Because if there is one law in psychology then it is that there is no law in psychology there is no given universal laws for human behaviour or thoughts or anything Every theory has it s use and flaws applicable to some while not applicable to others And this one is not applicable in this situation Nope not at all I hate the words the word play in this book a uantum entanglement of tubes and bodiestriumphantly digitized contemporaneity I hate the fact that it made me laugh so much smile a lot fall in love so hard only to exact revenge later on for giving in to the false security of humour and love by making me cryoh god cry so muchso much Because that s the thing about pain it demands to be felt I get ittotally get itI hate the fact that I ever read this sentence I lit up like a Christmas tree Hazel Grace I hate it I really hate it forget metaphorical resonances forget symbolism I actually hate itI hate the fact that it made me cry so much that the lovers of god knows which century entwined on my pillowcase were drenched in the torrent of my tears and were probably ruing the fact that there was no umbrella during their timeI hate the fact that I stayed up whole night reading this book half of the night crying and even after finishing it I couldn t go to sleep so the rest of the dawn just pacing in my room with all these haphazard desultory stars jumping around in my mind finding absolutely no avenue to become constellationsand my eyes puffy Note to self Do not stay up all night or add crying to it if you do to avoid puffy eyesWhy do I do this to myselfAnd I absolutely hate thisI hate that this story is stunningly overwhelming insightful irreverent raw and devastatingand to uote Markus Zusak it s the kind of story reading which You laugh you cry and then you come back for Some infinities are bigger than other infinities I m grateful for having known this little infinitygrateful for this epic love story of two star crossed loversimage error

The Fault in Our Stars

Our Stars is award winning author John Green's most ambitious and heartbreaking work yet brilliantly exploring the funny thrilling and tragic business of being alive and in love I must be clear from the beginning This is perhaps the most personal review I have written My choice of stars was difficult for this I am a self confessed John Green fan I believe he is amongst the best of not only YA but fiction writers out there in general This is a beautifully written book There is very little to complain about in terms of style plot character etc However I couldn t in all good conscience give this any higher because it sits so badly with me I have let this novel marinate for a couple of days now before writing this and I just keep coming back to the same issues NamelyWas this John Green s story to tellIt is the human condition to attempt to find hope in hopeless situations But let me attempt to explain how watching a 17 year old fade away truly feels Because when the wit and words are stripped away I am not sure John did thatIt is endless It is an unavoidable and uncontrollable and an all encompassing darkness where no hope or life or explanations existThere are absolutely no life lessons to be gained from watching a 17 year old cease to exist There is no comfort The lessons that some may claim you can achieve through the darkest night of the soul reveal most of humanity for the selfish narcissistic beings we areI have come to believe there is a special kind of cruelty behind the perfectly cross stitched encouragement Those things are for the ones left over trying to make sense of the senselessWhilst I believe this novel acknowledges that It tries not to as the main protagonists claimed theirselves set the victims of disease up as typical heroic worldly wise characters it still reads like a novel attempting to bring euilibrium out of disaster The victims ultimately still are wise beyond their years This it seems is an assumed side effect of a teenager coming to terms with their mortality They use metaphors and pretentious poetry and a sharp wit and are wholly unbelievable as real life teenagers They are constructs of an ideal They are the literary version of Dawson s Creek using SAT vocabulary and existential navel gazing whilst simultaneously slamming the typical genre for using its characters to do the sameHaving lived this first hand once with a brother who ceases to exist at 17 and a second time with a brother who is currently 2 years NEC I am all too familiar with the need for light hearted humour at what may feel like the most inappropriate of times But what differs from that and attempting to write a disease ridden novel that attempts to make you laugh is apparently personal experience I have the right to sit around a Christmas table laughing somewhat hysterically at nothing My living brother has the right to crack UNO ball jokes whenever the opportunity arises But none of the readers of this novel who have not experienced the kind of loss depicted here have a right to laugh at any of it You can not claim it as your own unless it is yours and in my mind that is what humour does It is not appropriate for me to laugh along with eye jokes and blind jokes because they are not my jokes I am merely a voyeur in another persons tragedy I lay no claim to having the understanding of the experience necessary to allow for laughterAgain let me make clear I can not approach this book outside of my personal experience Of course in reality I do not believe you have to have experienced everything to laugh at a joke But in terms of purposefully trying to create humour in a novel that is fundamentally tragic for an audience that is mostly YA I struggle with I struggle with it because the empty platitudes that are trying so hard to be subverted in this novel are still being created It is still suggesting there can be lightness and humour within the terminally dark and it is suggesting it to people who have never experienced the terminally darkThis read like a novel where the author has truly witnessed the emptiness of teenage terminal illness and thankfully appears to have become considerate and thoughtful for it As opposed to erring on the side of platitudesBut it still read as a novel attempting to explain where the hope in hopeless situations arePerhaps because it is too raw a subject for me or perhaps because the novel really is sentimental and gratuitous granted in a different way from the norm of this genre but this is not a book I would recommendFor sufferers for family members of sufferers or for well meaning people seeking to understand the hopelessness of some situations I would recommend it for none
