This book was sold to me as a book about a girl with a terminal illness. It was neither about a girl nor about what it’s like to live with illness. It was barely even a book.

THIS IS THE LAST ONE
Last time, things got disturbingly meta. Suicide tw for post (a bit) and comments (a lot).
Last time, a brief appearance of the only good character and a ray of hope that maybe Hazel will stop being so awful.
Last time, Gus finally croaked. (more…)
Last time, speeches about how great Gus is. (more…)
IT HAS RETURNED. (more…)
“Breast cancer is a made of suck disease that attacks one of my very favorite organs of ladies.” – John Green
This man is a disgusting misogynist and I despise him. More on how women are just boob holders and dying people are undignified losers in this exciting rendition of FiOS: Chapter 19!Also, I know I’m behind in replying to comments. I’ve been super tired, but as soon as I’m up to it I’ll get it done. I haven’t forgotten about you.
Hey, all. As I mentioned, chapter 18 was a joint effort. It can be found here.
I was away for the weekend and will be doing my darndest to catch up on comments for this and Fate. Feel free to comment either here or over there!
So I’ve started watching Utena! I hate the art style, but I like everything else about it. It’s a bit heavy-handed, but hot damn it’s an allegory I can get behind.
This chapter is a third of a page in Word, barely one-and-a-half in-book pages, and less than 500 words. It’s mostly dialogue. I feel like I’m watching this book wither and die slowly in front of me. Is this supposed to be meta?
This chapter is yet another less-than-a-page-in-Word laundry-list of emotionless actions.
There’s also some bonus, “Your purpose as a woman is to be fridged so your Man can be heroic,” fuckery, so that’s exciting, I guess. (more…)
I have no idea what’s going on in this book. This chapter is even shorter than the previous one– it’s less than a page in Word. Nothing happens, and it’s all laundry list. The first scene is written entirely in script format. Once again, I feel the need to say I’m not kidding. (more…)
edit: Apologies for weird formatting issues, Blogger is a huge giant assface.
This chapter is a word-count-boosting load of nothing. Well, there’s a lot of grammar errors and our characters are terrible people, but that’s to be expected at this point. Sigh.
Anyway, today on, “Holy shit John Green despises women…” (more…)
This has been sitting in the storage blog for two weeks, but every time I look at it my system goes into some kind of desperate self-preservation mode and all I can think is, “CAN’T DO THIS NOW OR EVER CLOSE WINDOW NOW NOW NOW.”
So Gus doesn’t get Really Sick on the first page of the next chapter; he kindly waits for the third. Bwahaha. I know I keep using this word, but it’s just so appropriate: Green is such a hack!
Anyway, Lifetime Movie incoming. This post is gif and image heavy, FYI. (more…)
I keep forgetting to post these, but here are two wonderful deconstructions of Green’s public persona that make me feel even less guilty about despising him based on this book:
Alright, time for that hot, steamy Holocaust.
edit: Just got the following comment/links from Whittler:
What the fuck.
