The Fault in Our Stars – Discover beauty in a special love

The fault in our stars

The Fault in Our Stars is the most tragic and ambitious work of John Green. The work is about the life and true love of two young people in difficult circumstances, but thanks to that, it helps the reader to have a funny look and a gentle acceptance of fate.

Although it is focused on an eternal theme – love, the work is not as romantic with a sunset on the sea as any other love work. In the work, readers will witness a profound sentiment of modern times in which the two main characters help each other and improve together. Readers will see a love of youth in a special modern-day situation. A time when cancer was so raging that it haunted everyone.

Readers will laugh and then cry as they turn and read the pages of John Green’s books. That talented pen has strongly destroyed the reader’s emotions when bringing tons of perfect comedy and tragedy through 360 pages of the book.

Will we be loved?

Not pessimistic and tragic as readers think. Hazel is stinging but still witty with life, with what is still going on around her. “Boring like a box” was what she thought of Mutuality – a gathering place for people in the same situation. A handsome character appeared named Augustus Waters and a painful and energetic love story for the Net generation was born. Hazel’s life was written next in a way she never thought of.

With profound knowledge in psychology, the work even mentioned Maslow’s Tower of Needs in the conversation of two young people. Once the physiological needs of food and water needs are satisfied, people move to the next floor of the demand pyramid. The pyramid of needs includes: physiological, safety, social, valued, and demonstrated needs.

When it comes to the Tower of Demand, Hazel feels mentally guilty as she is stuck on the level of safety needs. She is inferior when she is in no health so she cannot come up with love, respect or anything else. Fully exploiting the psychology of the character, John Green allows readers to feel the suffering of the young girl. Readers understand Hazel’s pain not only physically but also mentally. Readers see the inferiority complex of the young girl when she thinks that she has an inferior status compared to others.

Everyone deserves to be loved and family is a solid fulcrum

August helped her overcome her inferiority complex. August showed her that she was loved not because she was sick. August is “burning like a Christmas tree, from chest to left hip to liver, all over the body”, both characters understand its meaning. August loves Hazel because she’s wonderful, and he wants to extend his life to “disturb” her a little longer.

Readers will feel the love of a young romantic couple in their own way. They fight cancer as they do themselves. They helped each other through the chemotherapy days “gently”. Readers will see the optimism of a spirit of guilt through each page of the book. They deserve to be loved like everyone else.

Besides, when reading the work, readers will deeply feel the loving embrace that the families of the two characters give them. The loved ones of the two main characters are not sad at all. They accept softly, as is the case, they are strong and filled with love.

The love beauty of the young couple and the warmth of the family …

That is a deep feeling that readers will recognize when “sipping” each page of the book. Rarely is there a work that readers can fully experience such as John Green’s “The fault in our stars”.

John Green wrote books for young readers, but his voice was so casual that it escaped any reader classification system. This work he wrote for younger age is for young people. The work received a lot of praise and admiration from colleagues in all aspects. Readers will find that the small amount of time spent reading the book is completely worth it.

Let’s laugh and cry together and feel under that talented pen.
