Have you ever wondered how a person could intricately talk so much about everything in this world, and make it sound so freakishly flawed and imperfect, but yet insanely beautiful?
This man is someone who lights a spark inside every reader and says “You think you’ve explored every idea out there, but there’s a bigger madness inside you. Something that no one would have ever dreamed of.”
That’s by Augustus Waters, in The Fault In Our Stars. He explains that even though his life was not a long one, it was still its own infinity.
That’s from Margo Roth Spiegelman, Paper Towns. (I know. As if you didn’t already know that. Who doesn’t know Margo?)
That insane creature. I love her, maybe not all her ideas, but she is fascinating. And just too brave. 🙂
And every time I read this- and imagine it coming from the mouth of an 18 year old, with whom I feel I can resonate like never before, I lose it all over again.
In a good way.💫 :))
They muse together, looking at the eerie city beneath, glowing in the night-lights.
And now on a side note….Well maybe, I don’t agree with all of John Green’s characters sometimes.I don’t think smoking and experiencing smut are pleasurable things worth experiencing in life. Or that running away from your home is something fun.
I’m more on Quentin’s side. “Call that a character flaw, but for me its congenital”.
That’s again why John Green rocks to the sky. He actually understands people. 🙂
We travelled through The Fault In Our Stars and ended up melancholic, even thinking about how beautiful pain could be. And I don’t even know if that’s rationality.
It’s always his metaphors. And his theories. Hell, I adore them. His string of words that stretch across a single line, but convey a meaning that’s nine fathoms deep.
Now that’s something worth reading.
And then the 3 BEST ONES OF ALL, square in the middle. It is enchanting. (Well, they’re rectangle..ish?😅)
I really thought Looking for Alaska was a dumb book initially. SO. NOT 🙂
Then there’s this book! That’s Turtles All The Way Down.
This book’s synopsis tore me up a bit. And I thought I should never read it even if I get the book in my hands.
But I guess when it comes to John Green, the name speaks for the whole book and you should read it anyway. Because?
Well, its John Green. :))
Let It Snow, John Green
I love this quote the best of all in Let It Snow. I always look for the happy ending. Don’t we all, anyway? But I suppose happy middles are worth it too, because when you look back, that’s all you have.
THEY SO DO. THEY SO SO DO. Sometimes fiction speaks volumes about our messed up reality. And maybe that’s why we love it so much.
The final one. The point where you realise that sweet Augustus is actually no more.
That his letter to Van Houten was the most beautiful thing you’ve ever read in your life. And something grips your heart way too hard, as everything sinks in.
After which the tears flows freely.
Well, mine did anyway. Yours will, after you get into the book/movie The Fault in Our Stars. ⚡
That’s once again John Green.
