The Fault in Our Stars

Source: Tumblr 

On Tuesday afternoon, my friends and I decided to watch the newest and most talked about film at the moment, 'The Fault in Our Stars'. I read the book in 'my' summer holiday so that was January, about half a year ago and so I was really looking forward to it because I thoroughly enjoyed. 


I got lipstick on my notebook :( But look at my ticket!! 


I'm not going to spoil too much because this movie has just been released and some people may want to see it without knowing (but most of us have read the book anyway) 

Let's just say, I cried, a lot. Little trickles down my cheek but as soon as the scene cut, I kind of calmed down and then the tears kept coming- by the end, I was gushing. Basically all the scenes where Hazel cries near the end of the film, I cry too. I wonder what I would have looked like had I worn mascara. Haha.

I absolutely adored Augustus in the book, he was a charming, witty character so of course all the unfortunate things that happened to him near the end, I really felt it. Not to say I didn't like Hazel. Watching her struggle up the stairs whilst also believing in herself showed me the very essence of breathing- being present. 

I love the message of the film about living an extraordinary life isn't about being remembered by everyone but by being remembered by a few deeply. The cigarette from Augustus has become one of my favourite metaphors how you put killing thing right between the teeth but you don't give it the power to do the killing. The last words of the film are slightly different,  I didn't even notice since some of my quotes were a bit hazy but I actually preferred the lines from the film than to the book. 

It's definitely a film you want to see and I will definitely recommend it, if you haven't read the book, go read- it is a brilliant read, I read it in one day (crying into my pillow at the end of it) and then go watch the film, okay? 

Okay.
