To be honest a large part of my issue with that book is entirely personal. My best friend was diagnosed with cancer when we were 11, and she wasn’t given the all-clear until after her 18th birthday. Most of my teenage years were at least in part defined by that, and so the poetic pretentiousness of tfios - the sense that I at least got from it that cancer makes teenagers deep and meaningful and important - pissed me off. I know that I’ll get people jumping on me saying NO BUT THAT’S NOT THE POINT BEING MADE HERE but sorry, that was how I read it. As I said, aside from tfios I am a massive John Green fan. That was another reason this book upset me so much.
Cancer doesn’t make a young person into a different person, in my experience. My friend didn’t come out the other side more philosophical, wiser, kinder, or more intelligent for it. She’s now the 20-year-old version of the annoying, sweet, unique and completely batshit kid I knew my whole childhood. We still have all the same difficulties and strengths in our relationship that we always have. I don’t look at her now and see a pillar of strength and perceptiveness and beauty, because to be honest she isn’t. We meet up when she’s back from uni, and I see my oldest friend and a total pain in the backside.
Spending my adolescence knowing that any day I could get a call telling me a girl I’d known since birth was in the ICU on life support didn’t give me an understanding of the human condition or the frailty of mortal existence, either. And watching the people around her treat her like a saint or an invalid or both, expecting her to be all Tiny Tim and tearjerkingly philosophical about it all pissed her off no end, too.
Basically, tfios felt to me like a romanticisation of something bleak and ugly and difficult that defined a large part of my life, and it upsets me to see people swooning over bad metaphors in light of that.
