I’m going to speak about one of my favourite book which is The fault in our stars by John Green. This novel was PUBLISHED in 2012 and was also adapted in film.
In this book, we meet two teenagers, Hazel Grace and Augustus Waters, who are suffering from the cancer. They meet while they are in the same group of supports for the sick of the cancer and they become fast close with a lot of complicity. Hazel and Augustus like so much the same writer and they decided to go to Amsterdam to meet him. While this travel, they live their most beautiful love story, full of love, magic, laugh and power faced with the disease… But this magic fairy tale end when we hear that Augustus can’t survive for a very long time, and will die a few days late…
I think it is the saddest and the harrowing book I have ever read. In this book, we realize that the life can stop at any time and that it is very important to enjoy because one thing can detroy everything.
To finish, I would like to conclude with this quote, about the cigarette, which is in the book and that I find very revealing : “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.”
