Boom Clap! The sound of my heart. The beat goes on and on and on and on and…

Finished the book, saw the movie. The Fault in Our Stars is/was/will always be exquisite. It makes you realize how good of a life most of us have. I honestly want to go back to the movies and see it over and over again! I must say – and readers of the book will probably agree – that the book is better than the movie. Not only because the movie has a few different aspects but mostly because some scenes aren’t in the same order. That actually bothered me sometimes because I knew the book so well and it messed up the timeline. Also, some important aspects in the book – like the actual name of Augustus‘ book (The Prince of Dawn), the whole swing set ad, Hazel watching ANTM with her parents, Augustus having a fight with his parents before Amsterdam – were hardly mentioned in the movie. I guess I just missed Hazel thoughts on every little detail the most.

But hey… in the end, all that matters was the feeling I got. And it was very close to how I felt about the book. Plus, the movie has an amazing soundtrack! Sometimes, I even listened to it while reading. My favourite tracks are without a doubt Charli XCX’s Boom Clap and Jake Bugg’s Simple As This.

Have you read the book or seen the movie? YOU SHOULD!

    Ik heb het boek gelezen en daarna de trailer gezien, en ik was eerlijk gezegd teleurgesteld. De personages in de trailer leken helemaal niet op hoe ik ze mij had voorgesteld. Da’s natuurlijk eigen aan verfilmingen, maar toch de eerste keer dat mij dit zo hard stoorde. Misschien dat de film in zijn geheel mij beter kan overtuigen?
