John Green ´ 9 Read

The Fault in Our Stars Free read ¶ E-book, or Kindle E-pub Die oorspronklike Engelse roman THE FAULT IN OUR STARS is 'n internasionale blitsverkoper waarvan ook 'n baie suksesvolle rolprent gemaak is Die bekende skrywer en kunstenaar Tinus Horn het die boek op 'n sensitiewe manier in Afrikaans vertaal as DIE FOUT BY ONS STERRE Ondanks die mediese wond. I HATE this book Absolutely hate it Not just from the bottom of my heart which would literally mean my ventricles and so no but with my whole heart I hate it hate it hate itI hate the fact that it made me laugh so hard I hate the fact that it made me smile so muchI hate the fact that it made me chuckle so profuselyI hate the fact that it gifted me with so much Laughter Smiles and Chuckles when I was expecting to come face to face with tragedy at any momentit changed my expectations made me believe in Something which did not happenor maybe did happenI hate the fact that while Hazel Grace fell in love the way you fall asleep slowly and then all at once I just fell no warning no time to process the myriad emotions coursing through me nope nothing just a huge endless void filled fall and then a sudden crash that took my breath away like literallyI hate the fact that I fell in love with this bound to end in oblivion bound to end in disaster boy who stared with blue blue eyes and put the killing thing right between his teeth but never gave it the power to do its killing Putting a cigarette right between your teeth and never lighting it yes that s Augustus Waters for you people a guy huge on metaphors and symbolismthat hopeless boyI hate the fact that when I least expected it the story the words just grabbed me and pulled me in so deep that even the thought of ever resurfacing never entered my mindI hate that the fact that right in the middle of my dance in the rain of laughter dry wit and humour without any warning without any lightning as it s precedent this thunder would stun me startle me wipe the smile right off my face and sober me up wake me up from the intoxication of the very real yet false jocularity spun by them a humour which was nothing but human tragedy waiting to happen and had already happened in disguise and then push me back into that rain to dance againI hate the fact that I m not making my much sense right nowthat right now my thoughts are stars I can t fathom into constellations And yes all the hate above is a metaphor a symbolic word for love weird right But right now I can t bring myself to say that I love this bookI don t I don t I don t yes I do I do I doSo deep breath it s a story of a girl named Hazel Grace Lancaster a girl diagnosed with thyroid cancer at the age of 13 who s still alive at 16 thanks to a miracle drug which didn t work it s miracle in about 70% of the people but it did work in her So even though her lungs suck at being lungs she s still alive and well not kicking but breathing with difficulty because remember her lungs suck at being lungs but breathing nonetheless She s been nothing but a terminal case ever since her diagnosis The doctors are simply finding ways of keeping her alive rather than removing the cancer ridden lungs and replacing it with a new one because let s face it her chances of surviving such an operation are like next to nothing and why waste a good pair of lungs on a given bound to fail body 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 psychological theories this one too cannot be generalized or accepted universally Because if there is one law in psychology then it is that there is no law in psychology there is no given universal laws for human behaviour or thoughts or anything Every theory has it s use and flaws applicable to some while not applicable to others And this one is not applicable in this situation Nope not at all I hate the words the word play in this book a uantum entanglement of tubes and bodiestriumphantly digitized contemporaneity I hate the fact that it made me laugh so much smile a lot fall in love so hard only to exact revenge later on for giving in to the false security of humour and love by making me cryoh god cry so muchso much Because that s the thing about pain it demands to be felt I get ittotally get itI hate the fact that I ever read this sentence I lit up like a Christmas tree Hazel Grace I hate it I really hate it forget metaphorical resonances forget symbolism I actually hate itI hate the fact that it made me cry so much that the lovers of god knows which century entwined on my pillowcase were drenched in the torrent of my tears and were probably ruing the fact that there was no umbrella during their timeI hate the fact that I stayed up whole night reading this book half of the night crying and even after finishing it I couldn t go to sleep so the rest of the dawn just pacing in my room with all these haphazard desultory stars jumping around in my mind finding absolutely no avenue to become constellationsand my eyes puffy Note to self Do not stay up all night or add crying to it if you do to avoid puffy eyesWhy do I do this to myselfAnd I absolutely hate thisI hate that this story is stunningly overwhelming insightful irreverent raw and devastatingand to uote Markus Zusak it s the kind of story reading which You laugh you cry and then you come back for Some infinities are bigger than other infinities I m grateful for having known this little infinitygrateful for this epic love story of two star crossed loversimage error

The Fault in Our Stars Free read ¶ E-book, or Kindle E-pub Erwerk wat gewasse laat krimp en vir haar 'n paar jaar koop stuur Hazel se lewensverhaal op die einde af; haar diagnose het die inhoud van die laaste hoofstuk bepaal Maar wanneer 'n uiters aantreklike omwenteling met die naam Augustus Waters by die kankerondersteuningsgroep vir kinders instap. It seems silly that I have to say this but I ve seen many a negative review of this book met with backlash from John s nerdfighter fans so I want to make one thing clear I like John Green You ll find plenty who worship him as a god amongst men and many who are highly critical of him I fall into neither of these categories but I do like him and I enjoy watching his videos I find him funny and I agree with a lot of what he stands for I also appreciate the amount of charity work he does and the way he helps the nerds feel better about themselves and make it out of high school a little less scarred than they might have been I like John Green But I do not particularly like this book There are plenty of people raving about this book on goodreads on Kirkus in various magazines and newspapers so I realise I am in a tiny minority I will also admit that I might not have felt the same if I hadn t already subjected myself to numerous cancer books but as it is I do not feel anything that uniue or interesting has been brought to the table here For the first half approx despite my lack of enthusiasm I expected to give it three stars because I didn t consider it to be a bad book and it was well written enough however as the book wore on I began to realise that I was growing and bored and found myself struggling to read on This was something I hadn t anticipated I d prepared myself for many different possibilities heartbreak a changed perspective on life and death disdain annoyance but not bored indifference Hence the lower ratingOne of the first problems I encountered was that the kids were wise beyond their years And I don t mean intelligent I mean wise They came out with things that really only suit people who ve been alive a few centuries like Dumbledore or Gandalf or at the very least people who are sat comfortably in middle age I like that Green doesn t patronise his readers by oversimplifying things or dumbing down characters in a condescending effort to appeal to teenagers but these characters behave in a way that is unnatural to the point where sometimes it is verging on ridiculous It s not completely unbelievable that some kids exist who are actually like this but they definitely don t all speak and behave in this wayThe characters are all in one way or another John Green They all have his uirkiness his sense of humour I was picturing several John Greens sat around having a conversation while I was reading The Fault in Our Stars In fact reading this book was a little bit like watching one of Green s vlogs which might have worked well if JG hadn t dampened the humour with philosophical musings As it was I had a book that was trying so very hard to be both funny and sad at the same time and ended up failing to deliver either one as successfully as I would have liked The dialogue felt false and scripted because of the teens tendency to showcase their depth and intelligence Natural conversation between anyone of any age doesn t work like this and I couldn t shake the feeling that there should be a laughter track playing in the backgroundThe Fault in Our Stars in my opinion would have been far better if Green had stuck to humour like Andrews did in Me and Earl and the Dying Girl I believe that the exaggerated characters and their unrealistic conversations would have been fine in a straight up humour book because that s not supposed to portray something real and deep and moving But Green loses it by trying to be philosophical and in the end I think he has produced a book that is as melodramatic and message driven as any other on this issue And his attempt to balance humour and sadness left me somewhat devoid of emotion throughout and provided fewer laughs than I d hopedUltimately I feel that JG sacrificed humour in order to be deep and philosophical perhaps this book tried to be too many things perhaps JG tried to be too clever But Me and Earl and the Dying Girl was a much better book in my opinion because it did the whole serious illness humour thing but didn t over complicate things by being philosophical Like I said near the beginning perhaps I am just tired of these books and The Fault in Our Stars needs to be appreciated by someone who has not already exhausted themselves on similar efforts Blog Facebook Twitter Instagram Tumblr

The Fault in Our Stars Free read ¶ E-book, or Kindle E-pub Word Hazel se storie van voor tot agter herskryf Rou dapper oneerbiedig en vol insig DIE FOUT BY ONS STERRE is tot dusver die bekroonde skrywer John Green se mees ondernemende en hartroerende roman waarin hy die lagwekkende asembenewende en tragiese aard van die lewe en liefde skitterend verke. As seen on The ReadventurerThe Fault in Our Stars currently has a rating of 474 on Goodreads almost everyone I know has given it 5 stars therefore I m certain no one would want to read my sour musings except me and maybe a couple of other like minded and unimpressedWhat I d love to know is this what makes a writer undertake the topic of cancer So much has already been written about it so many Lifetime movies filmed so many tears shed It literally has been done to death What new did John Green have to bring to the cancer tableThe way I see it nothing Having your terminally sick characters be ironic about their illnesses and swap cancer jokes isn t groundbreakingThe Fault in Our Stars isn t a bad book but it s a standard cancer book and sadly a standard John Green book with standard John Green humor and standard John Green characters speaking in the very same John Green voice You have a witty and intelligent protagonist this time 2 Hazel and Augustus a female and male versions of MilesuentinColin a funny slightly pathetic sidekick Isaac another version of HassanChipMarcus a mysterious unhinged girl Gus s dead ex AlaskaMargo clone and of course the signature ROAD TRIP I can t help but recognize these people and this plot I ve read all of Green s novelsI understand why so many readers would have such an emotional response to the book Nothing will get the ladies crying uicker than a kid dying of cancer Add in some long farewells painkillers eulogies and funerals you can collect buckets of tears But IMO here Green aims for the most obvious the most easily accessible emotions for the most typical life lessons And for all Green s attempts to be subversive and to make fun of cancer cliches inspirational uotes heroic cancer survivors etc he ended up writing about exactly the same things Frankly I think The Fault in Our Stars is Green s weakest work to date weaker even than half baked Zombicorns Because this unlike his earlier works feels commercial and intentionally tearjerky and insincere It will probably sell the most copies
