Reading for TAP(text, audience, purpose) entry #1
The Fault in Our Stars is a nonfiction novel is written novel. After perusing the book, I do agree that it fits the conventions of a nonfiction book because it depicts a tragic love story between two young love birds. Even though the events that were orchestrated might sometimes be too unrealistic, for example they were able to afford an extravagant trip to Amsterdam(Holland) even though they were just students. However, I feel that the feelings and experiences they went through are really telling of how a love life is, which is normally not a smooth ride. In addition to that, it really shows me that in a relationship, it takes two hands to clap.
In my opinion, I feel that the book is suitable for everyone. However, if I were to narrow down a few target audience that book is meant for, I would say that young adolescents and adults in their early twenties would greatly enjoy this book. It is because in the book, the author used a lot of elements that young adults would find interesting such as mellow love scenarios and the book cover has pictures of beautiful and handsome main characters. Some of them might consider this their love bible.
The quote “Without pain, we couldn’t know joy.” by John Green really means a lot to me. It tells me that life is not always a smooth sailing boat. Success does not come effortlessly or without hardship, they have learned to make their wishes into reality, rather than waiting around praying for their wishes to be granted by God, or others. They have learned what the true meaning of life is. “It is to fight death to live. The dead want to live for a while longer, but does his wish come true? Sure is not. Life is not fair, maybe that’s why the world is not a licensing factory. The world wants us to work for our wishes, so when we receive them, it’s because we earn them. And if we don’t get them eventually, then I guess that means other people deserve it. Therefore, we must try our best to achieve everything and not just expect it to happen. You see life very short, you live now or never because the world is not a desirable license factory.
Another purpose of this novel is that it tells us that love is not always what fairytale depicts them to be. There are two love stories in this novel, one of the main characters and the second is of their supportive parents. I feel that, going through hardships and difficulties together as a couple really strengthens the bonds of ones relationship. We can also learn from their parents actions how to be a loving and supportive pillar of support for their children. Not only that, it provides a different perspective of couples around the world because the way Vietnamese couples act are polar opposite of the actions of the couples in the novel.
