Movie Vs Book - Fault In Our Stars

So I'm about 30 mins into the movie and really enjoying it so far. The book was brilliant, no doubt, but I had fears the movie wouldn't live up to my high expectations. So far it's not letting me down. (yay)

Anyways the whole point of this post is you know when your watching a movie and something happens and you swear a detail is off and it really bugs you. Especially because your not sure if your right or wrong because it's been so long since you've read the book?
Well I'm having that moment but with something a bit bigger than a minor detail..... I was totally under the impression that Augustus was well... of colour. (Which personally I would totally dig) Now I know this was a giant issue with Hunger Games and maybe that was reflected while I was reading The Fault In Our Stars? It has been quite a few years.... I don't know. :/

Did anyone else feel the same in relation to this book? or have a similar thing happen to them?

Question... (for fun)

I just made a comment on another post that I expect someday I'll climb into a book and never come out again.  It got my brain going (plus I'm stuck on the couch with a taped up back. I'm bored.)

 

If you could climb into any book/series and stay there, which one would it be?  Not which character would you become, but which story world would you join (as yourself) if you could?

 

I'm certain I could come up with some very literary choices given enough time, but after discarding P&P (no indoor plumbing), the first one that popped into my head was the world of A Discovery of Witches.  It ticks several boxes for me:

 - none of the characters have to worry about money,

 - all the creatures are equally good/evil (no caste system - all merit),

 - the BOOKS!!!  the History!!  the Art!!  

 - magic and faith intertwined with science

 - and, ok. a certain character named Gallowglass whom I have a crush on and was totally available at the end of the trilogy.

 

What book would you crawl into?

The Book of Questions: Volume I [The Book of Questions, The Book of Yukel, Return to the Book] (The Book of Questions , Vol 1) - Edmond Jabes
"A writer's life takes its sense through what he says, what he writes, what can be handed down from generation to generation."

"What is remembered is sometimes only one phrase, one line."

"There is the truth."

"But what truth?"

"If a phase or line survives the work, it is not the author who gave it this special change (at the expense of others): it is the reader."

"There is the lie."

"The writer steps aside for the work, and the works depends on the reader."

"So truth is, in time, the absurd and fertile quest of lies, which we pay with tears and blood."

Brave: Honest Questions Women Ask: Member book - Angela Thomas Great mix of personal and scripture. Very easy to relate to and it gave us plenty to talk about at my bible study.

The Book of Questions
The Book of Questions - Pablo Neruda,William O'Daly
A quién le puedo preguntar
Qué vine a hacer en este mundo?
Por qué me muevo sin querer,
Por qué no puedo estar inmóvil?
Por qué voy rodando sin ruedas,
Volando sin alas ni plumas


Preguntas poéticas sin respuestas, que te hacen pensar. Otra maravilla de Neruda, grande entre los grandes.
