A beautiful love story, that is to simply sum up The Fault in Our Stars.
In The Fault in Our Stars, John Green defies the typical romance by challenging the readers views on love and death. This love story is one between two teens, one with terminal cancer and the other with curable cancer which is a love connection we wouldn’t usually think about.
This is what I got from The Fault in Our Stars:
-Death may be inevitable but the person and the relationship shared lives forever.
-There will always be trials and tribulations after all life isn’t a “wish granting factory” but with loved ones (friends and family) around we can still enjoy life to the best of our ability.
-There’s always something to be grateful for.
-“…the world wasn’t built for humans, we were built for the world” – Hazel
The philosophy of Shakespeare is what gave light to the book’s title.
“The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars / But in ourselves”. A character adds more insight to this quote and the part it plays in the meaning of The Fault in Our Stars.
The word “okay” also plays an important part but you can find that out by reading the beauty which is, The Fault in Our Stars written by the amazing John Green.
