My Mam was really worried about me 'cause I was just reading on the couch balling my eyes out. LOL
Augustus' "Last Good Day" was the most beautiful and awful thing I have ever read, and the eulogies that Hazel and Isaac delivered broke my heart... but damn if that chapter wasn't perfectly written.
After reading The Fault in Our Stars, I now refer back to it constantly. I've never really done that with any other book. This book really enhanced my outlook on the world and is making me appreciate... everything more. For anyone who hasn't read this book and loves love and is not afraid to cry, read it now!
I defiantly just found another character in another book named Hazel Grace ____. I must say John Greens Hazel is much better. The book is called Glimpse. But I think she is called Zellie not Hazel.
John has actually talked about this... though it's unfortunate that you actually were put off by the... Augustus affectation. the truth is though, that a lot of people, particularly teens, and especially the ones who are really involved in school activities and/or with the popular crowd act like they are somehow more or other than they really are...or at least seem that way.
Anyone wish that your generation could speak to one another like Augustus and Hazel speak to each other?
It seems now that the only intelligent conversation I have comes from 1. my best friend or 2. the ning (as always) or 3. my own head.
I want an Augustus, minus the ending bit. Then again, even a temporary Augustus would be a great one. It would be a privilege to have my heart broken by Augustus Waters.
