What most do not know about me is that I am an avid reader. I love love love books! In most cases I would say who doesn’t love books, but I have met a few. As for books I have a huge collection, and with this one I had intended on reading the book before the movie. However that did not happen as planned.
So today I started and finished a book. I’ve seen the movie tons of times and have been listening to some of the soundtrack thanks to the movie. While reading the book I hopped on YouTube and found a video of the soundtrack. Now I cannot tell you how many times it played, but I can say I started the book after 11am, took a long nap maybe 3 hours, and finished the book about 9pm. Fast huh?
About the book, it is utterly and completely amazing. Aside from the cancer factors it was a truly beautiful love story. Only to be loved like that!!!!! Even though I seen the movie tons of times and cried everytime, the book made me cry harder and longer. With the abrupt end I would have loved to have seen the letter Augustus wrote, that would have been beautiful to have seen what Hazel did.
Now I have been told I did not need to read the book as the movie covered everything and followed along well. I have to say those people lied! You need to read the book as it is the same EVERYTHING happens I’d a totally different order.
