Hello, um, people? Friends? Readers? RANTERS! Hello Ranters. I recently read 'The Fault In Our Stars'. I know, I didn't really know if I liked the John Green books, I was content with having read 'Looking For Alaska.' I was honestly quite scared. I didn't want to disgrace the name of, like, my favorite youtuber, by not liking the book. But then I sucked it up, and bought it. I wanted to be in the little party aswell!
I am reading 'An Abundance Of Katherines', but before, I was finishing 'The Fault In Our Stars'. This is a review/fangirl rant.
I started, and was taken away into the world of Hazel. I kept reading until I realised that I was madly inlove with Augustus Waters. When they got to the Amsterdam scene, I cried. When Peter Van Houten happened I was so mad, for Hazel. And before I could stop, I found myself missing him, and wanting badly to give her a nice big hug, and watch ANTM. Then I was sad, and angry, and happy.
I wouldn't want to recommend the book. I felt like Hazel. Like it was my book. A little piece of me. But what makes a book like that? What makes us fall inlove, and cry?
Hazel and I wouldn't be friends, it's obvious. I would want to talk, and laugh, Hazel would be okay with silence. I wouldn't. I was annoyed with her at times. Maybe John Green is just amazing at selling things, or maybe we learn to open up. Think about it. Books, or the people in books are opening up to us, and will take up most of your life until they end. You feel empathy, you want to tell them, and think you know there will be time to talk, after they are done with the most interesting part of the story. When the story ends, you're good friends, and as soon as they finish, you are fished out of the nice little room where you were talking, and now it's over. You get over it, but you carry it around. You carry that little piece with you. So maybe next time you want to watch TV ANTM with be your first choice.
Just like the Beatles said, you've got to carry that weight. But I'm not going to be annoyed about that fact. You carry around the people's memories. It's not just books, it's real people, or Loki (Don't lie to yourself, everybody has the Loki!). This isn't bad, or is it?
I don't really like rereading books, or watching tv. Hazel didn't change that. But now I have a little urging in my head that tells me to be more like her. After Harry Potter, and the Hunger Games, and John Green books, I find myself almost trying to decide which mask to wear. So now I sign off, with a crooked smile, and a bow in my hand!
Hope you liked it! Please remember to comment on this and be nice! See ya later, Ranters!
