I finally sat down and read “The Fault in Our Stars” by John Green and then saw the movie. I’ve owned the book since October 2012, but I’ve been distracted by other books to read and writing and art projects. But with the movie looming, I didn’t want to repeat my mistake of watching the movie before reading the book, which I did with “The Hunger Games.” TFIOS is one of my favorite movie adaptations. And as a Nerdfighter, I’ve enjoyed hearing John and Hank talk about the book and the movie.
- Qualities of a good nurse: 1. Doesn’t pun on your disability. 2. Gets blood on the first try. 3. No condescending voice.
- But I believe in true love, you know? I don’t believe that everybody gets to keep their eyes or not get sick or whatever, but everybody should have true love, and it should last at least as long as your life does.
- I fell in love the way you fall asleep: slowly, and then all at once.
