Laura Dern: on divorce, taking risks and The Fault In Our Stars

Just hear me out. I read the book and cried. I also watched the movie where, again, I cried, though I must admit that I was slightly distracted by the girl sitting next to me who actually sobbed throughout the whole movie.

As the tide washed in, the Dutch Tulip Man faced the ocean: Look at it, rising up and rising down, taking everything with it. This epigraph, however, is an excerpt from a fictional book that only exists within the world of The Fault In Our Stars. The effect, once the reader realizes An Imperial Affliction is a made-up work, is to call into question what defines something as authentic. It puts a made-up quote on the same playing field as a real one, and in doing so it suggests a made-up quote can have just as much authority and credibility.

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green has been my longest standing favorite. Over the years, John Green became a very taboo subject for people. Over the years, John Green became a .

Green began work on The Fault in Our Stars in after serving as a student chaplain in a children’s hospital, and explains: They have very different ideas about what constitutes a well-lived life, as well as constrasting world views, but they are brought together by their love for each other and for a book. Though Esther is not the model for a specific character in the book, Green notes that, “our friendship and the joy she had in her life were huge inspirations.

Even before the novel was published, Hollywood came calling. But Green was reluctant to sell the movie rights. Having just produced the phenomenally successful Twilight series, based on the books by Stephenie Meyer, Godfrey and Marty Bowen, his partner at Temple Hill Entertainment, had become adept at recognizing literature that was ideal for screen adaptation.

Pre-production[ edit ] On January 31, , it was announced that Fox , a division of 20th Century Fox , had optioned the rights to adapt John Green ‘s novel The Fault in Our Stars for a feature film. Weber were hired to adapt the novel into a screenplay—their second adaptation for Fox, following Rosaline. Within ten or fifteen seconds of Shailene’s audition, I knew she was Hazel. She held up her script pages and just her eyes were peeking over them.

The fact that I get to work with these super talented people—I mean, that’s part of the reason why, I’m good in the movie, that’s the reason.

The fault in the film, then, lies not in its stars or its premise but in Josh Boone’s rather tepid direction, which betrays the film’s stated aim of delivering the kind of story that can’t.

But, in an echo of the new hit romantic Hollywood movie The Fault In Our Stars, she found reason to live again when she met another cancer sufferer.

Film review: The Fault In Our Stars (12A)

J June 2 — 8, Books read: Lowe both titles linked to my reviews. I gave them each a 7 pretty good rating. Paradigm took me longer to read than I expected, but it turns out that the paperback version will be over a thousand pages!

Everything you ever wanted to know about Hazel Grace Lancaster in The Fault in Our Stars, written by masters of this stuff just for you.

It was very emotional as well. I read the book first and enjoyed it very much, so I had to watch the movie and I was not disappointed and neither will you be. The characters are well thought out and the actors are well chosen. The actors performed really well in the film. One of my friends told me that they did not like this film because it was really cheesy, but in my opinion, that’s what made this movie amazing. It was simple yet, heartwarming. I was either crying or laughing in this movie.

My favorite thing about this movie was how the characters fought hard to overcome their illnesses. I totally recommend this movie to aged 13 and over. I give this movie a 4. Hazel has had cancer for many years, and has managed to seclude herself over time. Luckily, her mom asks her to go to a cancer support group where she meets Augustus, a young teen who is in remission from cancer. I personally enjoyed the novel much more than the film, since many important events were left out and some characters were removed altogether.


When you really love a book, character deaths can affect you almost as much as a real one. I think book characters are worse. I always feel more connected to my favorite literary characters than I do those in TV and movies. It doesn’t make it any better, honestly. I cried at a lot of HP deaths, but Fred’s was definitely the worst.

Rowling also tweeted that she was going to apologize for one death per year, which again, does not make it any easier, but still.

John Green’s fantastic book, The Fault in Our Stars, is being made into a movie. Hopefully it can live up to the reputation of the original. If you haven’t read it, read it. If you know enough.

Purchased Diagnosed with Stage IV thyroid cancer at 12, Hazel was prepared to die until, at 14, a medical miracle shrunk the tumours in her lungs Two years post-miracle, sixteen-year-old Hazel is post-everything else, too; post-high school, post-friends and post-normalcy. And even though she could live for a long time whatever that means , Hazel lives tether And even though she could live for a long time whatever that means , Hazel lives tethered to an oxygen tank, the tumours tenuously kept at bay with a constant chemical assault.

A match made at cancer kid support group, Augustus is gorgeous, in remission, and shockingly to her, interested in Hazel. Being with Augustus is both an unexpected destination and a long-needed journey, pushing Hazel to re-examine how sickness and health, life and death, will define her and the legacy that everyone leaves behind.

The Fault in Our Stars was amazing. I read it in a few short hours. I was that engrossed and fell that in love with its characters. There she meets Augustus Waters — cancer survivor and the type of guy who grabs life by the reins and just runs with it. Yes, this is a cancer book. Both Hazel and Augustus are such uplifting characters.

They give the story a light tone and not make it as suffocating as some cancer books can be.

The Fault In Our Stars

Share Pain demands to be felt. The line is prominently featured in the movie of the same title—and rightfully so, given that this dictum on the necessity of feeling pain is a key reason the story is so compelling. The inevitable pain of reading a novel about young people with cancer was likely the key reason I avoided reading the novel until I had heard so much about its greatness that I felt compelled to do so. It was indeed a painful read. I cried reading it.

I cried with most of the audience at the screening I attended.

For our first book selection of the year, we read “Fault in Our Stars,” a young adult novel written by John Green. i was excited to read this one because: it’s short, which works well with my current reading schedule of ten minutes at the end of the day after 12 or so exhausting hours of.

Originally posted by sugaa Yoongi let out a frustrated groan as the contents of the cigarette pack spilled on the concrete. He bent down to pick it, muttering profanities under his breath. A stray cigarette stick had rolled into a corner, but before he walked over to pick it, fingers wrap themselves around it. Yoongi stops and stands up straight to find a girl smiling at him, her arm stretched as she offered him the stick. Yoongi sticks the cigarette between his lips like a lollipop and looks at you.

He stares at the way your lips were serenely curled, at how your smile was supposed to be wrong. You should be judging. He was a delinquent. He noticed the transparent tube that was connected in your nostrils to a green tank beside you. You were one of the patients. Yoongi dropped the lighter in his pocket and brought his hand out to take the cigarette stick from his lips.

He stood there fiddling with the stick while you stood beside him, a really wide distance between the two of you, while you admired the stars. You were somewhat enjoying teasing him. You liked his exasperated sigh.
