Totally though she'd die before she met the author. Gah. And I though the book would end in mid sentence.
Glad neither happened :)
I was really curious about this too, although I'm not suprised that it had more of a 'My Sister's Keeper' twist to it. Sooo glad it didn't end mid-sentence. The end was perfect.
Also-- did anyone notice how the book ended with with Augustus' letter, like how Hazel had mentioned when she first met him that she was happy his story ended with someone else (in that case Isaac)? Not sure if this was intentional or not, but I thought it had a nice kind of symmetry to it.
I didn't notice that! It makes me love the book just a little bit more, but that's kind of hard since I already love it so much!
Yes, I thought she would die. Actually, I thought John meant to end TFiOS as Peter Van Houten ended AIA, having Hazel die and then ending the book in the middle of a sentence.
I thought she would die too and that it would end mid sentence, but I guess since Hazel said that she felt it was the writer's job to complete the story that maybe John feels that way as well.
I was worried about if she was going to die or Gus or Issac through most of the book, but forgot my mental debate when I couldn't think of anything else but what was happening RIGHT NOW in the story
I love Augustus Waters. I love him. "Gus" is sweet, kind,and just what I have always wanted in a best friend.
I hadn't read a cancer book before TFiOS, I was always worried about crying my eyes out and how everyone would die and how it would never have a good ending. I may actually read more cancer books now after I finished TFiOS, because if other people can write as...shockinglyamazingbeautifulfunnysad as John can I might be able to change my mind.
It broke my heart and I felt like I wouldn't be able to breath again. Yup. Feeling better now, but there's still a scar inside.
