Fault In Our Stars, By John Green

Dear Reader

The format of my presentation is to resemble the reality of love. I wanted to show real life situations throughout the story and make the as realistic as positive. The hearts really helps portray the feelings of the real love that goes on in the book. With my project i wanted to portray the reality of love and that happily ever afters don't always exist but, we can change out personal outlooks on reality.

Notes

Choice Genre : Medical Assessment

The assessment basically represents a lot of character development. It explains Hazel’s illness and talks about her views of her illness. It also explains some of her day to day activities that influence the book largely.

Compatibility Test

Hazel :


About Myself : I have cancer, and I’m most likely going to die. I do not like people who pity themselves especially all the special perks that cancer kids get. I love to read and my favorite author is Peter Van Houten. I don’t get out much but when I do I go to support group.


Features : Brown Hair, Brown Eyes, Short


"I had this pageboy haircut, and I haven't even bothered to, like, brush it. Furthermore, I had ridiculously fat chipmunked cheeks, a side effect of the treatment. I looked like a normally proportioned person with a balloon for a head. This was not even to mention the cankle situation." (Green 9)




Augustus :


About Myself : I try to be an optimist even though I have 1 leg and cancer. I love basketball but its not easy with 1 leg… I still go it. I have a great best friend named Isaac, he’s blind but I consider me to be his eyes. I like to go to his support group and mock the leader. I fear oblivion and death.


Features : Brown hair, Brown eyes, tall and lengthy


"Long and leanly muscular... Mahogany hair, straight and short.. his posture aggressively poor" (Green 9)



Compatibility : 86%



You two should definitely meet!!


Notes

Choice Genre : Compatibility Test

I choose to do this because I want to make it as realistic as possible. So, by doing this it shows there actual compatibility and potential love through the test. As well as sticking to my overall idea that “the reality of love”

Journal Entry

“I fell in love like you would fall asleep: slowly and then all at once.” She was everything and more I wanted in a girl. She was pretty and kind, with a lot of humor and sarcasm, just how I like it. Her name is beautiful “Hazel Grace” every time I hear it my heart beats faster. I need her in my life - she gets me and I get her. We have everything in common and also a lot of differences. I usually don’t believe in the sappy thing “love at first sight” but, my goodness does she make that all seem so true. I love her and I won’t get over it ever.


Notes

Choice Genre : Augustus's Journal Entry

I did the journal entry to really represent the way Gus feels after meeting hazel for the first time. I think it really shows his emotions and the real way he feels about Hazel. Also I used quotes from the book and actual thoughts from his head.

Amsterdam Time

Notes

I chose to do these there pictures because they represent the part of the book where they go to Amsterdam! Lots of great things happen on the trip and it's a really exciting and fun part to read. This part also shows a lot of growth in Hazel and Gus's love story. As well as developed some new events that happen later on. Also this is when Hazel and Gus tell each other that they love them.

Cracked

Notes

Cracked. This choice genre represents the time in the book where Gus has just told Hazel he is sick. “I'll fight it. I'll fight it for you. Don't you worry about me, Hazel Grace. I'm okay. I'll find a way to hang around and annoy you for a long time.” (Green) As he says in this quote that he's going to fight it, Hazel can't help but to think the worst. Naturally she lost lots of faith in the relationship.

Breaking

Notes

While Gus is in the hospital, Hazel is getting more and more worried for the death of Gus. It's also a time where she and he have grown really close and so she doesn't want to see him go. Her heart is breaking at the fact that she's going to lose her one true love.

Broken

Big image

Notes

This picture is here to capture Hazel's feelings towards Gus's death. She is broken. Her heart is too. During the death Hazel shuts down, cries and does all the rationale things a girl would do after her boyfriend dies. This heart is completely broken and it's not likely that it will mend back together.

Eulogy

"My name is Hazel. Augustus Waters was the great star-crossed love of of my life. Ours was an epic love story, and I won't be able to get more than a sentence into it without disappearing into a puddle of tears. Gus knew. Gus knows. I will not tell you our love story, because like all real love stories, it will die with us. As it should. I'd hoped that he'd be eulogizing me, because there is no one I'd rather have. I can't talk about our love story, so I will talk about math. I am not a mathematician, but I know this. There is an infinite between 0 and 1. There's .1 and .12 and .112 and an infinite collection of others. Of course there is a bigger infinite set of numbers between 0 and 2, or between 0 and a million. Some infinities are bigger than other infinities. A writer we used to like taught us that. There are days, many days of them, when I resent the size of my unbounded set. I want more numbers than I'm likely to get, and God, I want more numbers for Augustus Waters than he got. But, Gus, my love, I cannot tell you how thankful I am for our little infinity. I wouldn't trade it for the world. You have me a forever within the numbered days, and I'm grateful."- (Green) Pages 259 and 260.

Healing

Notes

This heart resemble's Hazel's heart after she finds the note from Gus. Her heart is still broken, but she's healing. She knows that hopefully one day they will see each other again.


"After my PET scan lit up, I snuck into the ICU and saw her while she was unconscious. I just walked in behind a nurse with a badge and I got to sit next to her for like ten minutes before I got caught. I really thought she was going to die, too. It was brutal: the incessant mechanized haranguing of intensive care. She had this dark cancer water dripping out of her chest. Eyes closed. Intubated. But her hand was still her hand, still warm and the nails painted this almost black dark blue and I just held her hand and tried to imagine the world without us and for about one second I was a good enough person to hope she died so she would never know that I was going, too. But then I wanted more time so we could fall in love. I got my wish, I suppose. I left my scar.
A nurse guy came in and told me I had to leave, that visitors weren’t allowed, and I asked if she was doing okay, and the guy said, “She’s still taking on water.” A desert blessing, an ocean curse.
What else? She is so beautiful. You don’t get tired of looking at her. You never worry if she is smarter than you: You know she is. She is funny without ever being mean. I love her. I am so lucky to love her, Van Houten. You don’t get to choose if you get hurt in this world, old man, but you do have some say in who hurts you. I like my choices. I hope she likes hers.”

Unifying Element

The hearts throughout the presentation represent hazel and the love that she feels. The size and shape also describe her feelings towards Gus and her sickness. This is to really capture the feeling of Hazel and not just say that she is sad but represent it in a real way.
