Losing your corememberer

Thursday, June 26, 2014

My nineteen-year-old sister gave me a copy of The Fault in Our Stars, the novel by John Green where the film of the same title was based from. I’ve never seen the movie, and I was intrigued why it became such a top grosser. So, like what my sister told me to do, I read the book. 

Here’s a passage from the book that I liked: 
“The pleasure of remembering had been taken from me, because there was no longer anyone to remember with. It felt like losing your corememberer meant losing the memory itself, as if the things we’d done were less real and important than they had been hours before.” (John Green, The Fault in Our Stars, 2012)

After what I went through, I have no desire to see this movie or read the book. In fact, I have no desire to watch any movies relating to cancer and other rare diseases. I have very bad flashbacks, so for now, I'm sticking to comedy and action flick.
