The Fault in Our Stars was an inspiring book, especially since the author, John Green, wrote the book in a way that made me see the world in a new light. In the book, the main characters, Hazel and Augustus, showed me the importance of how friends can make a big impact on each other’s lives. The biggest lesson Augustus taught me, is that I can change myself, but I can't change someone else. John Green once said, “Some infinities are bigger than other infinities.” We are all infinities, but some of us feel smaller, however, we are not. Some infinities will also always be bigger than we could possibly fathom. I will always be reminded of the choices I could have made, but I never regret the decisions I have not made. In the book, John mentions the one thing that I felt like when I was reading. John Green made me see something I would have never seen in another person; emotions, the thoughts floating through someone's mind as they experience some kind of death. I saw something physical, but emotionally, I felt the character and psychologically I understood Hazel Grace's feelings. “Books so special and rare and your that advertising your affection feels like a betrayal.”
