Yesterday at the MTV Movie Awards in LA, the first clip of Josh Boone’s adaptation of The Fault in Our Stars was revealed. And it was beautiful.
If you haven’t heard of The Fault in Our Stars (known simply as TFiOS online) then I have only one question for you: Do you have a good view in that CAVE YOU LIVE IN?!
Seriously now, this novel has taken over the world. It’s everywhere. More importantly, John Green is everywhere. That novel has given the word “okay” the potential to make the entire fandom burst into tears, and curl up into a ball due to the overwhelming pain of FEELS! It’s a seriously painful disease, I would not recommend it to anyone. Developing FEELS will pretty much take over your life, and there is no way of stopping it. It will consume your every thought, I can promise you that.
So, onto the clip.
It was amazing. The chemistry between Hazel and Augustus (actors Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort, respectively) is already amazingly evident, and all we’ve been given is a trailer and this one 1:00 minute clip.
I watched the clip, knew what was coming, and still flailed like a lunatic purely because he pulLED OUT A BOX OF CIGARETTES!!! The metaphor. The first clip to be released and it’s the metaphor clip! I just- I’m just so happy with life right now.
“It’s a metaphor.” Just, beautiful. It was exactly how I imagined it, while reading it! Honestly, after watching that, I’m so excited for the release day, but at the same time it needs to take it’s time getting here. I doubt I’ll be able to handle watching the movie. I doubt I’ll be able to handle the chemistry between the two of them. I doubt I’ll be able to fall in love with Augustus Waters in movie form as well as in novel form. I JUST DON’T THINK I CAN HANDLE THE FEELS!
If you haven’t read the book, then you probably have NO idea what I’m talking about. I highly recommend it! John Green is an insanely talented writer, and he manages to describes a teenager’s emotions, as well as making you empathise with the characters. You will always find a bit of yourself within his characters, and that is something not every author can do. I don’t understand why some people refuse to read, and I don’t buy the excuse of “I don’t like reading.” It’s not that you don’t like reading, you just haven’t found the right book yet. So, keep reading till you find it. And you can begin with reading The Fault in Our Stars by John Green! You won’t be disappointed (unless you don’t have a heart), I promise!
