“Truth is, I don’t think people understood what it was I was doing at Shaffer. I wasn’t there to conduct. Any fucking moron can wave his arms and keep people in tempo. I was there to push people beyond what’s expected of them. I believe that it is an absolute necessity. Otherwise, we’re depriving the world of the next Louis Armstrong, the next Charlie Parker. I tell you man, every Starbucks jazz album just proves my point, really. There are no two words in the English language more harmful than good job”.
“Gus, my love, I cannot tell you how thankful I am for our little infinity. I wouldn’t trade it for the world. You gave me a forever within the numbered days, and for that I’m eternally grateful.”
Hazel and Augustus are two teenagers who share an acerbic wit, a disdain for the conventional, and a love that sweeps them on a journey. Their relationship is all the more miraculous, given that Hazel’s other constant companion is an oxygen tank, Gus jokes about his prosthetic leg, and they meet and fall in love at a cancer support group.
My thoughts; Okay, The Fault in Our Stars was wonderful, yet horrible, yet perfect at the same time. While it was missing a lot of the good parts of the book, they both made me cry equally as hard so thumbs up there.
The thing that made me mad though were all the screaming, talking, crying, pre-teen girls that flooded the theater and made the experience a lot less enjoyable.And the selfish brats who didn’t give up their handicapped seats as an actual handicapped person came into the theater. Guess that’s my own fault for wanting to see it right away, though :/
