It’s Tuesday and we have just got in the groove for the ground and pound of the weekend. Silly me, I am always caring for the week to end, so that I can spend some time on my own and catch up with all that has been left behind during the week. Actually, it takes a lot of mental strength to walk out of depressing times and then reach in a space of tranquility. The last week was full of action and on Sunday, we got a shock of our lives when a young actor gave up on his life. Now we need to heal and what better than a book.
So, to commemorate Sushant Singh Rajput’s death, we bring forth the book on which his last movie Dil Bechara is based. We present to you The Fault In Our Stars. It is an extremely catchy book which captures the unknown flavours of love and also tells you a lot about the human spirit, and how lively it can be, even in the face of death. It also takes you through all the pain and suffering that goes in the life of a terminally ill patient, but it does not do it in a negative light. The author, John Green portrays the human being as a normal entity with the myriad of emotions that would be present in the life of a regular person, who is healthy.
What our team likes about the book is the wit and humour that the author has used at the appropriate moments.
In the book, two terminally ill patients, Hazel and Gus meet together in a cancer support group. Initially, they were complacent with their short lives. But when they meet each other and love blooms. Author John Green takes you on an emotional roller coaster ride and makes the reader live life through acceptance of death in an easy manner. The book is truly based on the adage, live life to the last breath. A must-read, a must-have in your personal library.
