Hazel was diagnosed with lung cancer at a young age, but this has not stopped her from enjoying life, or falling in love. Hazel meets Augustus Walters, who will become the love of her life. Hazel and Augustus do not let their illnesses stop them from doing the things they want to do, on the contrary, it seems to motivate them. While the subject of this story is a serious one, Green who understands this, decided to go along with it because he wanted readers to acknowledge that life is also about suffering and loss.

Essay from the year 2015 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, course: IB English, language: English, abstract: "The Fault In Our Stars" is a tragic love story that deals with the sufferings and deaths of cancer patients. John Green borrows the title of the story from Shakespeare's "Julius Caesar," wherein Cassius says, "The fault dear Brutus is not in our stars but in ourselves that we are underlings." But contrary to what Cassius says, this story establishes the conundrum that we are helpless before our destiny. In Green's novel, Hazel and Augustus are lovers, not unlike "Antony and Cleopatra," and "Romeo and Juliet." But what separates them from the legendary lovers is the fact that they are born with cancer in their cells. Their story, although of great love and compassion, will not be written in the pages of history.
