In an excerpt from the Unlucky Stars book, we read:
– True love arises in difficult times.
If there was no pain, how could the pleasures be understood?
– Our lucky stars are not unlucky, the objection arises from ourselves.
– It is difficult to find a good friend and it is impossible to forget him.
– You have given me infinite infinity in a limited time, and I thank you.
– Did you notice that the playgrounds of the hospitals are always empty and there is no one to play with?
I said, “Umm, I have nothing else with me.” He said, “What a pity. You are very much in the mood of my poetry now. Do you not memorize anything?” I began with concern: “Let’s go, you and I / when the sun sets over the sky / like a sick person who has been anesthetized with ether, lying on a table.”
– Girls think that they are allowed to wear beautiful clothes only in formal ceremonies, but I like a woman whose way of thinking is like this: I want to go and meet a boy who has a mental and nervous breakdown, a boy who has just lost his sight. It’s wrong, but why not? I wear my beautiful clothes!
“I love you,” Augustus said softly. “Augustus,” I said softly. “I’m really saying,” he said. He was staring at me, and I could see that the corners of his eyes were wrinkled. “I love you, and I do not deny myself the pleasure of simply telling the truth. I love you, and I know that love is nothing but a cry in emptiness, and forgetfulness is inevitable, and the end of us all is destruction and one day we will all “Our work in this world is turning to dust, and I know that the sun will devour the only planet on earth, and I love you,” I said again. “Augustus.” That’s all I could say.

The Fault in Our Stars or the misfortune of our stars; A book to understand love
“I’m sure I did not want to say that Hazel and Augustus are not heroes because I really wanted them to be heroes,” says John Green in an interview about Our Stars’s Error. Not because they were sick, not because they made difficult decisions. “Especially Gus wanted to be a hero, but I did not want to be one of those heroes, because most of us are not the ones we want to be.”

Why the misfortune of our stars?
All authors spend a lot of time choosing the title of their book. Because the original name or title of the book is the first writing that the reader sees when buying that book. For example, William Faulkner takes the name of the book “Rage and Pandemonium” from one of Macbeth’s monologues in a play of the same name by William Shakespeare.

John Green searched for many classics to choose a name appropriate to the story of his book, and eventually named the book The Fault in Our Stars. The title comes from a dialogue in the first scene of William Shakespeare’s play “Julius Caesar” in which the character of Gaius addresses Brutus: “Dear Brutus, error is not in our lucky stars, but in ourselves because we are nothing more than inferiors.”

In his book, John Green tells the story of a love that happens to be the fault of the stars Hazel Grace and Augustus. Luck that threatens the opportunity to be together and stars who act against their will.
Green has a bigger purpose than that, and that is to send a message to all those who are battling cancer, a cancer that results from improper placement of stars. It is interesting to know that the title given to the Norwegian translator of this book is “Damn luck”.

Is this story of “the misfortune of our lucky stars” real?
John Greene, author of Our Stars’ Mistake, says in an interview that all the characters in his story are fictional and none of them exist in reality. However, he is inspired by the story of his book by a girl named “Esther Grace Earl”. It can be said that Hazel Grace’s character in the film is very similar to Esther Earl, at least in appearance. Esther Earl was an American writer and blogger who had been battling thyroid cancer since the age of twelve and was eventually defeated in a 2010 battle with cancer.

“We met at a Harry Potter conference in 2009,” Green said in an interview with Esther. When I entered the hall, everyone in the group was chatting and making noise. I was standing in the corner, and so was the girl. “That’s why we started talking and became very friendly.”
