7. “I’m in love with you”
“I’m in love with you,” he said quietly.
“Augustus,” I said.
“I am,” he said. He was staring at me, and I could see the corners of his eyes crinkling. “I’m in love with you, and I’m not in the business of denying myself the simple pleasure of saying true things. I’m in love with you, and I know that love is just a shout into the void, and that oblivion is inevitable, and that we’re all doomed and that there will come a day when all our labor has been returned to dust, and I know the sun will swallow the only earth we’ll ever have, and I’m in love with you.”
We already know that this scene is going to be different in the film, setting-wise. In the book, Gus tells Hazel he is in love with her on the plane to Amsterdam, but in the trailer, we see that Gus will confess his love in the Oranjee restaurant in Amsterdam. Nevertheless, I expect this scene to be as touching and honest as it is in the novel.
