Whenever you feel sad about your art, listen to Bob Ross.
I love The Fault in Our Stars, don’t get me wrong. But I hate the attention it gets, because it’s getting the wrong attention. Rather, it’s not getting the attention it deserves. Sure, there’s a tragic love story in the book, but it’s about a really serious topic, childhood cancer, that’s being ignored because everyone just wants to gush over how ‘perfect’ Augustus Waters is and how much they wish they had a guy like him. I mean, I’m not saying you have to read the book and not even think about Augustus and Hazel’s romance, but don’t completely disregard the cancer part.
I am a childhood cancer survivor. The way John Green translates the journey of battling cancer is by far the best description I’ve ever read. While there’s no perfect way to put those emotions into words, he does a pretty amazing job with it. And that’s what bothers me. This book is offering a glimpse into the life of a childhood cancer patient - someone who is the same age as you or younger - a chabce to see what it would be kind of be like to walk in their footsteps for a little while, and not a lot of people seem to get that.
I just really wish the cancer part got more attention. To see such an amazing book about a real issue hit the top charts makes me feel so happy, that finally people can kind of understand what we go though, but that it’s not getting that attention makes me really sad and upset. Again, I’m in no way saying “Don’t love Augustus Waters!” or “You have to read the book THIS way!” I just want people to be able to see the other message in it. GAAHHHHHHH
If you read all if that, props to you. Thanks for letting me get that off my chest!
I was gonna message you but your ask is off :-( I kinda felt super happy to see this when i searched the #tfios tags. I think for me like, I wish more people would talk about Hazel’s attachment to the book. LIke it took my second read through to really grasp it, but she’s so excited when she learned about her mom taking classes and these things that her parents will do for years. That this book has bothered her, even though she loves it, not because she wants to know what happens to these characters after the main character dies, but because she wants to know what the people around her will do when she’s gone. She wants to know they will go on after she’s gone and I wish more people would talk about that because That’s probably my favorite part about this story. I love how much she loves her family that she is just really freaked out about “I’m not gonna be a mom anymore.” because she wants her mom and dad to keep going because she knows what good people they are.
