8. The Book, An Imperial Affliction
“My favorite book is probably An Imperial Affliction,” I said.

The Fault In Our Stars really has three main characters. Aside from Hazel and Gus, there is also An Imperial Affliction. In this scene, Gus invites Hazel over to watch a film starring Natalie Portman (“V For Vendetta,” to be precise) and they start to get to know each other. It is the beginning of the love story between the two of them.
I expect An Imperial Affliction to be a big part of the film, because it is in the novel. It represents so much, because of Hazel’s obsession with it and because it brings Hazel and Gus together.
