Nicholas Sparks can fuck right off for that insult to real cancer patients Most importantly Hazel and Augustus are not defined by their cancer It consumes their lives but it doesn't define them On every page it's clear this is a story told by someone who hasn't known just one person with cancer but has seen a multitude of children with terminal diseases and has tried to find some way to comfort them and their families It's for that reason that I don't feel like I can review this like a normal book John Green didn't write this story for me and so I don't feel like I have any place saying that it's amazing and beautiful and heartbreaking And I certainly can't criticize any of its minor faults All I can say really is that you have to read this for yourself and go from there Okay you guys know me better than that I have one big complaint which I will describe here and all I ask is that you remember that I still gave this five stars Augustus Waters in the first few chapters comes off as a pretentious douche When Hazel first meets him at a cancer support group they're talking afterwards and Augustus takes out a cigarette and puts it in his mouth Hazel who you'll recall is dying because her lungs cannot function freaks out even though you HAD FREAKING CANCER you give money to a company in exchange for the chance to acuire YET MORE CANCER Augustus explains that he doesn't smoke the cigarettes he just puts them in his mouth no really because They don't kill you unless you light themAnd I've never lit one It's a metaphor see you put the killing thing right between your teeth but you don't give it the power to do its killing Augustus I love you but you're full of shit right there Notice how he didn't address Hazel's perfectly valid point that by buying cigarettes Augustus is giving money to the people who cause cancer? Because here's the thing you can say to a cigarette company I'm buying your cigarettes as a metaphor but I won't light them so I'm taking away their power and they'll stop listening at I'm buying your cigarettes because that's all they care about And it's a shit metaphor in any case you can walk around a mall with a shotgun and explain to people that because it's unloaded you've taken away its power but you're still going to get arrested So that was annoying as was Augustus's general air of overly charming pretentious skeeziness in the beginning But I forgive him for it because lest we forget he is seventeen If his character was twenty two he'd be the most obnoxious jackass on the planet but because he's just a kid I was willing to forgive him Still hate the cigarette thing though

So Hazel has never been anything but terminal her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosisEnter Augustus Waters He's 17 gorgeous in remission and very frankly and much to her surprise interested in her It's a match made in Cancer Kid Support Group in the Literal Heart of Jesus you'll know what that means when you read the bookyou'll laugh trust me you will He is a tenured professor in the Department of Slightly Crooked Smiles with a dual appointment in the Department of Having a Voice That Made My Skin Feel More Like Skin He's the unexpected hot gorgeous twist in her storya story which is about to be completely rewrittenTheir story begins with a staring contesthe stares at herSo she stares backbecause let's face itSpoiler Alert She winsAnd it progresses into something brilliant something as bright as the stars into Something with a capital SI hate this book This needs indefinite repetitions I hate itI hate the fact that I fell in love with their always Okay I hate the fact that Hazel Grace took the words right out of my mouth when she said what she said about being a vegetarian I want to minimise the number of deaths I am responsible for and about not knowing what's cool I take a lot of pride in not knowing what's cool I hate the fact that I fell in love with this blue eyed boy who drove horrifically and his cheesy and yet very endearing attempts to be Prince Charmingbut so with himthe surprised excited and innocent side of him May I see you again? he asked There was an endearing nervousness in his voiceI smiled SureTomorrow? he askedPatience grasshopper I counseled You don't want to seem overeagerRight that's why I said tomorrow he said I want to see you again tonight But I'm willing to wait all night and much of tomorrow I hate the fact that Hazel Grace felt like a grenade and all she wanted to do was minimise the casualities when not if but when she blew upI hate the fact that I felt sorry for a lonely swing seta Desperately Lonely Swing Set Which Needed a Loving Homeor maybe it was simply a Lonely Vaguely Pedophilic Swing Set Which Sought the Butts of Childrenand the fact that I absolutely love this sentenceThe Lonely Swing Set or maybe Just Vaguely PedophilicAnd even though I fell in love the way you fall from a cliff or a building don't really know how that feelssince I've never done thatI hate the way she fell in loveI hate this kissbecause for who so firm that cannot be seduced? And then we were kissing My hand let go of the oxygen cart and I reached up for his neck and he pulled me up by my waist onto my tiptoes As his parted lips met mine I started to feel breathless in a new and fascinating way The space around us evaporated and for a weird moment I really liked my body; this cancer ruined thing I'd spent years dragging around suddenly seemed worth the struggle worth the chest tubes and the PICC lines and the ceaseless bodily betrayal of the tumors I hate the love letter she wrote himSpoiler Alert It's a Venn diagram love letterI hate the fact that she did not agree with Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs in which Abraham Maslow an American psychologist claimed that certain needs must be met before you can even have other kinds of needs Something like thisUnless and until your needs of the previous level have been fulfilled you don't even think about the needs of the next level Of course like all
