During the dinner, Augustus confessed his love to Hazel Grace, making her cry in happiness after a speech he has given to her about his love.

Hazel went to Augustus funeral and left a new pack of cigarettes that Augustus would use right on his casket. The day of the funeral Peter Van Houten gave Hazel a letter written by her dear love, Augustus, before he died.
  • Slide 10
  • Tone The Tone The tone of this novel would be sweet, sad, and sorrowful. The tone is sweet because Augustus was a very sweet guy and selfless to Hazel because he spent his one and only genie wish for Hazel. As mentioned earlier, Augustus explained his love for Hazel making her cry tears of happiness. The tone is also sad and sorrowful because Hazel found her first ever love, which was Augustus, and it was really sad when he passed away because he was such a gentleman to Hazel and the two create so many memories with each other in such a little amount of time. Thats why the tone is Sad, Sorrowful, and Sweet.
  • Slide 11
  • Mood The mood of this story is the author might try to make you feel really, really, really, sad because of the plot. Maybe in some events you will say, Aww that was so sweet and there might be on another event where you say, OH MY GOODNESS, THAT WAS SO SAD I CANT BELIEVE THAT JUST HAPPENED. But, that honestly depends on how you would feel about this story and what happens.
  • Slide 12
  • Protagonist and Antagonist Protagonist: The Protagonist of the novel is Hazel Grace because she is basically the narrator and she is the girl who falls in love and her life leads to the plot when she meets Augustus. Antagonist: The Antagonist isnt exactly a character but its the cancer. It leads Hazels and Augustus relationship to get ruined because, as mentioned earlier, Augustus died because of his cancer. The two main characters both suffer from cancer and it makes it a struggle to live.
  • Slide 13
  • Quote from the Story The Quote, Okay? Okay. is one of the most popular quotes from the story. They way the quote was made is on page 73 on my copy of the book it said Okay, He said after forever. Maybe okay will be our always Okay I said. The word Always from Isaac and his ex girlfriend because Isaac would always say Always to her and so now Augustus and Hazel would say Okay instead.
  • Slide 14
  • NOTE At the end of the book, in the acknowledgments John Green wrote that Phalanxifor, the drug that Hazel uses to slowly down her cancer does not exist in real life and that he just made it up because he wanted it to exist in the book. I searched up if An Imperial Affliction was a real book, but all the results said it was not a real book and that Peter Van Houten isnt a real author, meaning John Green made him up. Yet, It was based on a book called Site: aia-a-real-book-i-feel-actually-dumb-for aia-a-real-book-i-feel-actually-dumb-for imperial-affliction-a-real-book-heres-what-you-need-to-know- about
