Happy Birthday to the most amazing and one and only Ben Howard !
#the fault in our stars
"I’m telling you Augustus Waters, talked so much that he’d interrupt you at his own funeral. And he was pretentious; Sweet Jesus Christ, that kid never took a piss without pondering the abundant metaphorical resonances of human waste production."
- Issac at Augustus’ fake funeral
"Sometimes, you read a book and it fills you with this weird evangelical zeal, and you become convinced that the shattered world will never be put back together unless and until all living humans read the book."
"See, we don’t have that much time left. All us teenagers, pretty soon we’re gonna be just like you. We’re gonna have jobs, and bills, and families. And we’re gonna have to worry about our own children, because that is the job of a parent. To worry. I get that. But ours, as teenagers, is to live! To play our music way too loud and to act like idiots! And to make mistakes."
People criticizing TFIOS because Gus sounds pretentious???
that was the point???
like literally at his fake funeral his best friend talks about how fucking pretentious he is and how annoying it was???
It was one of his character flaws? He was deliberately written that way?
You’re not being clever or critical by pointing it out, you are literally stating a fact about the novel that the author deliberately wrote
