Please try again later. I am not quite finished with the book, but so far, I think it is very well written. It covers a topic that is difficult to talk about and is often avoided.
It has been challenging for me to get through; however, I feel like I should add my perspective. I was diagnosed with cancer at I am now 15 years old and a teen-age cancer survivor. I am a volunteer and advocate for pediatric cancer awareness. This book has gotten negative reviews based on several points: They do not speak like teenagers. They do not even handle situations like teenagers do. So many interactions between Gus and Hazel are interactions which, plain and simple, just would not happen between real, emotional, scared, awkward, virgin teenagers, let alone ones with cancer who have been socially cut off for much of their lives.
Have you spent time with any of us? We may look like teen-agers, but in our heads, we are not. We have had to face our own mortality and make choices we should never have to make. It makes us grow up Most of us do not act or speak like teen-agers because that is no longer how we think. After treatment, many of us find the things most teens and sometimes adults are worried about are trivial. Society cuts us off, but we are not cut off from each other.
These types of interactions do happen. And, it is emotional and scary, but we learn to tell it like it is, without the normal fluff and awkwardness.
We find 'normal' where we can and try to live every single day we have because we know that time is an illusion. I have seen my own parents and siblings and the parents of other friends struggle with this. Many times, they do not have their own identities anymore. Every single minute is spent trying to make it to the next! They try to keep the family together and functioning, in spite of the effects of treatment, fevers and midnight trips to the emergency room, 3 weeks of the month spent in isolation, jobs in jeopardy, birthdays and holidays interrupted, not to mention talks that parents never want to have with their child.
I've talked to my mom about this. This becomes their identity. My mom said their jobs become about doing whatever it takes, travelling all over the country which is very common , researching new studies, and new medicines, all to help us survive and thrive with grace and dignity.
It is also their job to prepare, if treatments don't work, to help us die with just as much grace and dignity. I hope everyone can read this with an open mind and an open heart.
Then, reach out to the patients and survivors in your communities. They are wise beyond their years, funny, brave and inspiring.
Paperback Verified download. The best stories are about memory. It is my third favorite story and favorite non-fantasy novel. One day Hazel catches the attention of a boy named Augustus and their romance is as breathtaking and expedient as it is completely genuine and uncontrived. Augustus has recovered from bone cancer that left him with a prosthetic leg, but did nothing to diminish his spirit. So much so that Hazel shares with him that her favorite book is a story by the reclusive author Peter Van Houten called An Imperial Affliction.
Sometimes, you read a book and it fills you with this weird evangelical zeal, and you become convinced that the shattered world will never be put back together unless and until all living humans read the book. But Hazel makes it very clear that this is not a cancer book in the same way that The Fault in Our Stars is not a cancer book.
And even after that, when the robots recall the human absurdities of sacrifice and compassion, they will remember us. We could all do that if we tried that way no one has to be forgotten.
But will we then fight over who we are allowed to remember? Or will the fourteen just be added to those we can never forget? They read each other the poetry of T. It reveals you. All of us.
There will come a time when there are no human beings remaining to remember that anyone ever existed or that our species ever did anything. There will be no one left to remember Aristotle or Cleopatra, let alone you.
Everything that we did and built and wrote and thought and discovered will be forgotten and all of this will have been for naught. Maybe that time is coming soon and maybe it is millions of years away, but even if we survive the collapse of our sun, we will not survive forever.
There was time before organisms experienced consciousness, and there will be time after.
And if the inevitability of human oblivion worries you, I encourage you to ignore it. How will I find something to match this? How can I pick up another book and not expect it to resonate with this haunting beauty, this tragedy ringed with comic teenage snark and tones that are themselves tragic in their sarcasm like whistling in the ninth circle of hell or laughing uproariously at the monster?
That the fact that the plot may be cliched is unimportant and that dwelling on such trivialities is in and of itself a fatal flaw.
This story is so much more than the letters and words on each page. It is sad? It is heartbreaking?
More so. Is it worth reading? Has anything sad and heartbreaking not been worth reading? The story of Hazel and Augusts deserves to be read just as the story of Anna, her mother, and dear hamster Sisyphus deserves an ending, and that becomes their exploit to seek out reclusive Peter Van Houten so that the characters can be properly laid to rest and remembered.

I'm so confused. Why is this book hilarious, with all its witty banter and thoughtful philosophy? Shouldn't I be crying over the depth of the subject matter? Shouldn't I be feeling broken by the abject loss of the power of death - the way it's so all-consuming and doesn't care who it touches or who it hurts?
How is it that I keep smiling this delighted smile and laughing gleefully over the way these characters find joy in spite of their suffering? Maybe it's the irony of Hazel's cynicism, I don't know.
The end of Chapter 10? I can't stop crying.
Augustus is funny and smart and intellectually stimulating. He's quick and clever and patient and gentle. But he's also a little bit of a smartass and he's impossibly fun. It's brutally endearong, especially combined with Hazel's matter of fact personality, her acceptance of life as what it is and not what she wishes it was.
My emotions are so raw right now I need a break from the story And yet I cannot force myself to take one. I wear glasses because chronic dry eye syndrome gives me progressively horrifying eye fatigue, which blurs everything more and more the longer the day goes on.
But right now I'm reading with my glasses off, and everything is a blur, because I can't wear glasses while crying. I finished this book somewhat disappointed. I didn't cry my way through the end, as I had expected to. But I read that last word, closed it out, and promptly burst into tears. For its lessons and its inspiration Five stars.

The quote is about a man looking at the sea. He sees the waves and the water as a metaphor for time. Her mom makes her attend a support group for children and teenagers who are diagnosed with cancer as well.
She meets Augustus Water there, who has joined the group because of his friend Isaac, who attends the group as well. Augustus and Hazel get to meet each other and he invites her to his house to watch a movie with an actress, who looks like Hazel Graze according to Augustus. On the way, Hazel Graze explains her cancer story to Augustus. After that they watch V for Vendetta, a pretty famous movie.
At the end of the chapter they say goodbye and say that they would catch up soon. To celebrate the day, Hazel Graze meets up with her old school friend Kaitlyn. They hang out in a shopping centre and talk about anything and afterwards they go shopping. After Kaitlyn leaves, Hazel downloads the second book of the book series Gus fancies. It is about Anna, who has cancer and the book ends in the middle of a sentence because Anna probably dies.
Because Hazel Graze wants to know what happens after the ending of the book she wants to track down the author. After a while Hazel calls Augustus and because she realizes that Isaac is with him and apparently very depressed and sad, she comes over to help. When she arrives, Gus tells her that Isaac and his girlfriend broke up. As a therapy Augustus offers Isaac to destroy all of his basketball trophies. He also loves the book and they talk about it for quite a while.
Hazel writes an email to Van Houten and asks him to give her some information about what happens after the end of her favourite book. In this chapter Isaac has his operation as well and gets blind because of that. The next morning Hazel Graze gets an answer from Van Houten, who tells her that he could impossibly write about the ending of the book but he offers her to talk about it if she ever finds herself in Amsterdam, where he lives.
They are both not sure whether that is a good idea because of her disease. She is very sad and also confused about her feelings for Augustus. At dinner she bursts and tells her parents that she is like a grenade that is about to explode and kill everything around it.
Later this evening, her parents come to her room and talk about it and say that they do not see her as a grenade, but love her without any exceptions.
