Sorry this is late! I haven't even started reading the book for the second time, so these questions are ones I found on the internet!

1. How would you describe the two main characters, Hazel and Gus? Do either of them conform, in behavior or thinking, to what we normally associate with young cancer patients? How do the two differ from one another...and how do their personality traits and interests complement each other?

2. At one point, Hazel says, "Cancer books suck." Is this a book about cancer? Did you have trouble picking up the book to read it? What were you expecting? Were those expectations met...or did the book alter your ideas?

3. Talk about how you experienced this book? Is it too sad, too tragic to contemplate? Or did you find it in some way uplifting?
