“Some infinities are bigger than other infinities.” –John Green, The Fault in Our Stars
I must say that I was a fan of this book. I wasn’t sure what to expect when I started reading it but what I got was a blunt cancer-stricken teenager’s unfiltered thoughts. It makes you feel as though you are truly hearing how someone in her situation would feel. She is funny, sarcastic and unapologetic about it.
This book will make you laugh and cry. (I say this not out of personal experience but that’s just because I’m weird and don’t visibly react in books – that’s why I watch the movies. I will cry like a baby in this movie, I’ll tell you now.) That’s the best way I can briefly describe your emotions in this one. This book makes you go from being angry at cancer to falling in love with a stranger to being angry at cancer again. Augustus is incredibly loveable and goes perfectly with Hazel’s bluntness. The book takes many almost unbelievable twists and turns with completely real and believable emotions inside all of it.
I am quite excited to see what they do with this movie. I know a few things for certain: I’m going to cry and my husband will laugh at me for it and he will (once again) try to convince me to name our future son Augustus (still not happening). I’m sure there are some smaller moments that will be omitted but I’m interested to see some particular scenes come to life.
