I don't really know why I started a blog again. a) Nobody's going to know about this. b) I don't think I'm going to post every day. That's just not me. I guess this is more for me though, to get everything out. Maybe one or two people are going to read this, if so: Hi.
Recently, other than working, I've done loads of reading. I was with my two friends over the weekend and we went to this MASSIVE bookstore; it was way too hot in there; but they basically walked around with me, introduced me to some books. Books I've heard of but never wanted to read, or even books I've never even heard of and thought "Let's read this." So, here I am. A complete mess after reading The Fault In Our Stars by Mr. John Green. I'm probably way too late with this, considering the movie came out last year, not to mention the release of the book.
So, to make it even more worse: After finishing the book in less than one day, which is not a new thing for me whatsoever, I've watched the movie. And it killed me. It mentally and physically killed me. I was full on sobbing. That never happened before. Sure, I cried whilst reading books or watching movies, - BUT THIS was beyond "crying". This was "dying inside".
To everyone who is very anti-romantic, I suggest you: get this book and you will completely change your mind. It's not even ONLY about love, it's more about surviving, making the best out of what you have and not taking a day for granted. You have only this one life and you have to make the best out of it. Sorry.
Not to mention, though, that I really want my own real-life Augustus Waters.
I don't know why I'm getting so worked up over a story, fictional characters and a movie. I guess I'm just way too emotional. Or a hopeless romantic. I can't decide. But before I continue brabbeling about how amazing this story is I ALWAYS suggest: Read the book, watch the movie afterwards. Most of the time the book is way better, more detailed and it definitely helps you to understand what is happening on the big ass screen, when things are not exactly happening like in the book. Maybe there are going to be times when you walk out of the cinema when you're disappointed that, maybe, you're favourite scene or your favourite sentence even didn't make the final cut, but at least you know the -real- story. You've read the book, you have it. And you can imagine your own little movie, because YOU know what's happening other than people who only watch the movie because they've heard that it's "good" or the media is making a big deal out of it or whatever.
Don't be disappointed, be happy that your favourite characters came to life. And for TFIOS I must say that there is probably no better Augustus Waters out there other than Ansel Elgort. He is perfect for that role and I'd probably thank him personally, if I could, for being such an amazing actor and for bringing this IMPORTANT FICTIONAL CHARACTER to life in the best way possible, but unfortunately I can't, but I can be happy that it happened. Not to mention Shai Woodley as Hazel, but I loved her even before, so I wasn't surprised when I saw her in the movie, being the most perfect Hazel Grace Lancaster anyone could ask for.
