So last Monday 9th of June 2014, I was able to go out with my friends and luckily, we got tickets to TFIOS. God, never been so happy. Anyways, I’m a Filipino. And a lot of Filipinos have been dying to watch this much-awaited movie which is based on John Green’s bestseller novel that was released year 2012. To be honest, I haven’t read the novel yet. I wasn’t really the book lover that era. I just became a book lover last year and the novels I purchase and read are from PSICOM , POP FICTION by SUMMIT MEDIA, Lifebooks and Pastry Bug. And I have collected about 50-plus of ‘em. I don’t buy books by English and International Authors because I find them too pricey. I just buy the ones written by 'local’ authors. (where prices range from 95 to 300 [in Philippine peso]) So yeah. I got really interested in TFIOS when I first watched the trailer. I was like “OH CRAP THIS IS A MUST-WATCH MOVIE I GOTTA GET SOME TICKETS!” So yep, dream come true. I found time to look up TFIOS on Wiki so the plot was also written there. I knew that Augustus *cries* will die because of the plot spoiler. (I just said it a while ago) But yeah. When I was in the cinema with my friends, we scream often because of the way Gus bores his eyes into Hazel’s. God it was just perfect. And I cry on the saddest parts of the movie like during Gus’s pre-funeral. It’s just so heartbreaking. And also when Hazel said that “Some infinities are bigger than other infinities.” Yeah so true. But everyone has their own destiny. And to talk about cancer. I fear it. My dad had it when I was in 3rd grade but luckily, we discovered it when it was still on the 1st stage. So the doctors were able to treat it. I used to cry everyday because of that. But everything happens for a reason. And to all cancer patients out there, NEVER LOSE HOPE. Let Hazel Grace Lancaster be your role model.
THE MOVIE WAS GREAT.…...

...Love in a man’s life is indispensable. To exclaim this in the words of Max Muller: just how a flower cannot blossom without sunshine, a man cannot live without love. However distressing love’s consequences and imminent conclusion may be, to have loved, suffered and endured is to have lived life to its truest and fullest sense. A life without love is like a flower without petals, a perfume without fragrance, a rainbow without colors. So when Sir Alfred Lord Tennyson writes -- Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all, he is correct. This assertion has best been validated in popular literature, ‘The Fault in Our Stars’ being a good example. Writer John Green’s global phenomenon ‘The Fault in Our Stars’ follows the poignant story of a young teenage girl named Hazel Grace who has been diagnosed with terminal Stage IV thyroid cancer which has spread to hers lungs. She lives a near-hopeless life idling away her hours waiting to die. But her forlorn life is about to change when one day, while reluctantly attending a support group to appease her much-loved parents, she meets Augustus Walters, a charming and confident teenage boy who is in remission from a rare form of osteosarcoma, a bone cancer, after a leg amputation. There is a spark between them and they instantly fall in love with each other. Augustus arranges for a Dutch themed picnic where he announces his plans to take Hazel to Amsterdam where she could meet her dearly esteemed author of The......

The Happiest Sad Story

...When asked about the author of a book, rather than the book itself, nobody seems to know whom you are talking about. Authors are not considered celebrities when it comes to the scale of how famous they are. However, John Green captured the minds of a diverse group of people that included teenagers, adults, and kids old enough to understand his book, The Fault in Our Stars. Many people had read his other books including, but not limited to, An Abundance of Katherines and Looking For Alaska. Once people started reading TFIOS, or The Fault in Our Stars, word got around about all of the tears shed, goose bumps felt, and smiles captured with this read. Through this fictional book, Green’s inspiration is based entirely on a real life story. Hazel is a fictional character and in many ways, completely different from Green’s friend who died of cancer in August 2010 when she was 16. Green’s friend, Esther, meaning “Star” in Persian, had the empathy of a counselor but the spunky teenage way that all young adults should have. Green took that and formed Hazel Grace Lancaster’s character, who was not a part of the book at the time of his friendship, because the story was extremely different prior to Esther passing away. Esther loved reading, and Green wrote books. Green was intrigued to know Esther and her family, so they spent time and took on the internet together. Their relationship grew stronger as they got closer and Esther got more sick. She showed Green that dying is......
