A Brief About Augustus Waters/The Fault In Our Stars
So Hazel, the main character of The Fault In Our Stars, is in remission from thyroid cancer that had spread to her lungs.
Her Mom, worried that Hazel doesn't hang out with friends and do normal teenager stuff, makes Hazel go to support group for teens who have (or have had) cancer.
At the support group, Hazel see's her friend Isaac, whose cancer has caused his blindness in one eye and she meets a hot, but odd, boy named Augustus Waters.
During the meeting, everyone is supposed to talk about what they are afraid of, when it is finally time for Augustus to share what he's afraid of, he says:
“Augustus, perhaps you’d like to share your fears with the group.”
“I fear oblivion,” he said without a moment’s pause. “I fear it like the proverbial blind man who’s afraid of the dark.”
“Too soon,” Isaac said, cracking a smile.
“Was that insensitive?” Augustus asked. “I can be pretty blind to other people’s feelings.”
