What are you wondering about as you read? And/or what questions do you have?

Augustus says he fears oblivion. Hazel replies " ... And if the inevitability of human oblivion worries you, I encourage you to ignore it. God knows that's what everyone else does." Who do you agree with and why?

Augustus says "It's a metaphor" when confronted about the cigarettes. How are they a metaphor? Do you have anything that is a metaphor in your life?

If you were one of the main characters what would you do next?

What line in Chapters 1 -4 spoke to you and why?

Hazel says that "there are books so special and rare and yours that advertising your affection feels like a betrayal." What does she mean by this statement? Do you agree with her and why? Have you ever had a personal connection with a book, artwork, or piece of music? If so, what was it about that work that spoke to you?
