Have you seen the movie or read the book?

Thoughts?

Who was your favourite character?

Why?

What do you think of Isaac's ex?

What would you do in her situation?

Do you think Gus should've told Hazel he was dying before?

Have you read any other John Green novels?

Are you a nerdfighter?

I don't care about whether an ideology is "necessary" or not,
I care about how to solve problems,
which is what everyone else should also care about.

I haven't read the book, but the movie adaption of The Fault in Our Stars is two hours of trite tripe. It's literally a pointless movie - everything it tries to say is said in the form of meaningless deepities. Most of the "touching" lines sound like they belong on Hallmark cards. The worst part about it, though, is that it thinks that it's deep - it seems so confident that it can send a meaningful message, but it puts in no effort towards that goal. It's entirely hollow, and it's probably one of the movies I dislike the most - pretty much for the same reasons why I absolutely hate Fight Club and things like Tuesdays With Morrie. There's no substance to any of them, but they don't accept that. If it was honest with itself, it might have been saved, but it wasn't.

Most definitely one of the least enjoyable movies I've had to slog through.

Or lose the race to rats
Get caught in ticking traps
And start to dream of somewhere
To relax their restless flight
Somewhere out of a memory of lighted streets on quiet nights..."

I read the book a year or so before I saw the movie.
Thoughts?
I adored the book, and I thought the movie was very faithful to the book.

Who was your favourite character?

I think it was Hazel Grace.
Why?

She was very intelligent and I could relate to her.
What do you think of Isaac's ex?

I think Monica probably loved Isaac. She might have not been able to handle the situation.
What would you do in her situation?

I don't know.
Do you think Gus should've told Hazel he was dying before?

No, I don't think Gus should've told Hazel he was dying before. It would have ruined the trip.
Have you read any other John Green novels?

I have read Looking For Alaska, and An Abundance of Katherines. Paper Towns is on my TBR list.
Are you a nerdfighter?
Yes, I am.
DFTBA!
One day I saw a man walking down the street, and he walked up to me and said, "Did you know that humans are the only species who tear down trees to make paper, and then write 'save the trees!' on them." I was amazed, then everyone else looked at him and glared with annoyance. I was the only one that actually cared, about the trees, about the man, about the world.

I've read the book.

Thoughts?

It was okay. It was a cliche teen drama novel, which I've read many, so it didn't stand out. Honestly there's not much too it. It was every teen cliche novel + extra sentiment.

Who was your favourite character?

Probably Hazel. For a female, especially the lead in a cliche teen drama, she didn't come across as a whiny teenage girl, which is what I expected.

Why?

Above.

What do you think of Isaac's ex?

There was much about that bit. For a storyline which could have been quite dramatic, it was really underdeveloped so with regards to Monica, she was probably just weak-willed and couldn't handle it.

What would you do in her situation?

Depends on who it was, how serious is was.

Do you think Gus should've told Hazel he was dying before?

Have you read any other John Green novels?

Paper Towns, Looking for Alaska, Will Grayson - Will Grayson, An Abundance of Katherines.

Are you a nerdfighter?

I suppose so.
