The Fault In Our Stars

That’s the thing about pain, it demands to be felt.

And Augustus Waters dying was, perhaps, the worst part of the story. And watching the motion picture of John Green’s creation made the pain feel infinity-er than it being read. Indeed, some infinities are bigger than other infinities.

I was honestly disappointed with Peter Van Houten as I pictured something worse or someone far  from Willem Dafoe. And as usual, there are missing scenes in the movie that were in the book. But that didn’t make the movie any less “okay” (not to mention the noisy cries of other people in the cinema).

I like how Shailene Woodléy and Ansel Elgort portray the characters in the book quite well. Regardless of Ansel’s cute visage, they just have the chemistry and the knack in acting—which undeniably gave so much power in injecting the feelings to the audience.

The book is a written piece of such beauty and love, like a collection of all the greatest words. It alone sent my brain to release some tears, more did the sad, beautiful movie.

My heart reaches out to Hazel Grace Lancaster whose heart was broken by someone who didn’t mind to have the privilege to have his heart broken by her.  It was all a side effect of dying.
