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!
