I just finished it.
Emotions are all swirly now.
I'm glad I had today off so I could go get it and just marathon read it... took me about 5-6 hours.
Has anyone finished? thoughts?
TFIOS is one of those books that becomes a part of you. It is also one of those rare books that you want to immediately deem your all time favorite,even if you have only read it once. So is my case. I just finished reading this brilliant piece a few hours ago and I am still having a hard time snapping out of another realm. Big questions still linger in my mind...
that might not change so much with time...though John has answered a lot of questions over on tumblr
If this were Facebook, I would like that post. That is exactly how I felt!
Oh my gosh. That book has changed my life (not literally, but mentally). I almost cried when Augustus...you know. I felt the loss every time she thought about him or spoke about him in the end of that book. Its reality, though, is really amazing. I've never suffered from cancer but I know that's how I would most likely feel. I hate sympathy anyways, and I can only imagine how hard it must be for them, going about their lives with people always thinking about them with a lingering thought in their head: I feel so bad for them, and I know how hard this must be. But they don't. They believe what they want, and they can't know that pain unless they develop it themselves. Earlier I might've let on that I'm one of those believers, but I'm not. I said that I can only imagine, not I know. There's a significant difference. But I'll never think of cancer again without think of Hazel Lancaster and Augustus Waters.
