Through Hazel’s depression, Gus’s influence, and her realization on the importance of life, John Green’s The Fault in our Stars, shows that one should embrace the life you want, not dwell on the one you have right now. Hazel hated her life and suffered that every day because all she did was watch America’s next top model and read an Imperial Affliction over and over again. When her mom made her go to support group she recorded every episode she would miss while she wa there. She only stopped when she met Augustus. She got to go to Amsterdam and meet Peter Van Houten because of Gus.
This book teaches me that life is too short and we should surround ourselves with people we care about and love deeply. Death is so imminent and final, so one should try to spend their life to the best of their ability. Green’s book affects me emotionally as well because I really felt Hazel and Gus’s compassion towards each other and their difficulty of trying to come to terms with their terminal cancers. It seems as if I was with them the entire them and I felt every happy or heartbreaking moment they
She watches people walk to his coffin, some cry, others just say something to him. Each person touches the coffin, too afraid to touch his body. Hazel notes that no one wants to touch the dead” ( Green 248). Cancer takes a toll on the people around them and very hard for the family. Hazel notices the toll Augustus’ death has taken on his parents, reminding her of her own fears for her parents after she dies.
In the beginning of the film, Hazel and her mother are attending a doctor’s appointment where they are seen meeting with Dr. Maria. At this meeting they are discussing Hazel’s condition and reviewing her plan of care. Additionally, Hazel’s mother is expressing her concerns about her daughters behavior and she feels Hazel is “depressed.” Dr. Maria reviews various medical options to care for Hazel’s feelings of being depressed. She also suggests Hazel attends a local support group of other young people who are living with or surviving cancer. While attending this support group, Hazel meets Augustus ‘Gus’ Waters, a fellow cancer survivor and potential love interest.
The fault in our stars by John Green, is an account of the encounter and the journey of two teenagers who both have cancer. The main character Hazel Grace; suffers from a lung cancer thus she is incapable to breathe without her machine and breathing tubes, earlier in the novel she is depicted more like an observer of her life rather than actually living it. Following her mother’s insistence she joined a support group where she met Augustus Waters ; a seventeen years old lad, she also made the acquaintance of other teenagers battling cancer. Hazel’s encounter with Augustus got her more actively involved in living. The two teenagers embark on a journey of self-exploration and self-actualization from their home to Amsterdam.
In the beginning of the story, Hazel was convinced that life was just as it was, and had no meaning. This is shown through, “That’s part of what I like about the book in some ways. It portrays death truthfully. You die in the middle of your life, in the middle of a sentence” (Green 67). Hazel says this about her favorite book, because the book ends in the middle of a sentence.
The fault in our stars 1. Hazel is a 17-year-old girl who likes to live in the present, she doesn't like to look back at her past or predict her future. She lives now and that’s all that matters. Her appearance is very depressing and her answer to that is” depression isn’t a side effect of cancer it's a side affect of dying.” She believes that people get a number of days and hers is a bit less than others. Augustus sees cancer as a metaphor and he uses a cigarette to demonstrate it.
Hazel is watching his death,"she fired twice, and the emperor and the empress were dead before they hit the floor"(pg. 64). Hazel has little to no reaction, she sobs for a minute then George questions why she is crying, but she can not recall what she had seen as it was something very sad on television. As Hazel is of average intelligence it justifies why she could not quickly remember what she had seen. Nevertheless, her reaction is inhumane and insensitive as she suggests "that one was a doozy"(pg.
Because Hazel do all she can to survive in her illness and also her friends. The authors point of view “without pain how could we know the joy?” this is all about of two people who suffering from cancer that will be issue as known for some people. I will recommend it to other people because it is full of knowledge that gives you hope to fight what you have. Person’s be engaging to read this book are the people who have illness same with the story in this book to be able to give hope and to inspire them because The Fault in Our Stars is an inspirational
