The Fault in Our Stars

The Fault in Our Stars - John Green description
“That’s what bothers me most, is being another unremembered casualty in the ancient and inglorious war against disease. I want to leave a mark.”

How hard it is when people look at you and you see in their eyes that you are nothing but a poor little shadow walking desperately towards its death.
There are so many people, in this world, suffering in silence with only one single hope that, someday, death would pay them a visit!
It's really weird, isn't it? That we - so called normal people - are looking forward to live longer, enjoy life, achieve more in our times, marry beautiful girls, have smart kids and stash more money ... etc. while on the other side, the so called "invalid people" are just waiting impatiently to have a merciful death, and to leave a mark by which they'll be remembered after they're gone.

When I finished this novel, I wondered: Am I really alive?
You know, I heard a very powerful words from the movie Braveheart said by William Wallace ( Mel Gibson ) : Every man dies. Not every man really lives
I think these words describe the novel pretty well.
Death will come to us all, but life - real life - will not be granted to us all! And that's the question [To be or not to be]
This novel taught me not to think much about death, but to think about life, notice it, and value it, because it's a real gift that we should work really hard to deserve.

"So dawn is going down today,
Nothing gold can stay"

This book is a must read. I highly recommend it.
