The Fault In Our Stars
A book by John Green
The main characters are Augustus Waters; a cancer survivor and amputee missing his right leg due to his cancer, and Hazel Grace, a young girl with lung cancer and an oxygen tank named Philip. There are other character's, like Isaac, Gus's best friend who lost his sight due to cancer, however, those characters are not as important.
The setting in TFIOS is mainly in Indianapolis, where Hazel and Gus live. The setting also takes place in Amsterdam, where Peter Van Houten lives. The story also takes place in churches, gas stations, and amusement parks.
The plot in TFIOS is very complicated, as the story is mainly about two younger people slowly falling in love, a battle with cancer not yet won, and even life with different disabilities and sicknesses.
The main conflict in TFIOS is Hazel's lung cancer, and her wanting to be treated normally by those around her, and, another conflict would be Gus fearing oblivion, as he doesnt want to be forgotten, so he wants to leave a mark on the world.
The theme in TFIOS is mainly love, and courage to face whats thrown at you, like Gus losing his leg after cancer, and Hazels "Crap" lungs due to cancer.
Symbolism would mainly be Gus's unlit cigarette, as he sort of laughs in life's face and say that he's in charge now, and he won't let cancer rule his life anymore.
A good example of foreshadowing is the fact that by the way Hazel thinks, and talks about Gus, is that she might be starting to fall in love with him, however, the suspense is that Gus already is in love with Hazel, and he wants her to start to love him, and you are wondering will she start to love him.
"I'm like a grenade mom, and at one point, I'm going to detonate."- Hazel explaining her cancer will kill her.
"You put the killing thing right between between your teeth, but don't give it the power to do it's killing."- Augustus "Gus" Waters explaining his symbolic cigarette.
I think a good song for TFIOS would be I'm The Man by Aloe Blacc, as it describes Gus's dominance over his cancer, and how he has gotten over losing his leg with little to no regrets.
