Description

I went into this story completely blind, I recommend doing so because it definitely gives you all the feels not knowing anything until you read it. You probably can predict a good amount of what will happen in Five Feet Apart (although there are some sort-of surprises), but it didn't matter to me in the slightest.

So while I didn't like a number of things (see list below); I cannot deny that Five Feet Apart is well written and has good characterization. In this moving story that's perfect for fans of John Green's The Fault in Our Stars, two teens fall in love with just one minor complication - they can't get within a few feet of each other without risking their lives. I loved Will’s hobby of drawing comics, I liked Stella’s YouTube Channel, I enjoyed their interactions with their friends and with each other. She is also a good friend, and desperate to make her parents happy, and she is all-round a lovable character. Sometimes I thought the panic must be worse for him than the lack of breath as the panic exacerbated things every time.The story might be considered to be a little bit corny or cliche for some but for me I totally fell for it and devoured it in two sittings. There’s some disagreement within the CF community about whether or not this book is an accurate depiction of CF. Even though her cystic fibrosis has kept her from doing some of the things she has wanted, Stella has always taken control of her disease, at least as much as she possibly can. That is how I've always imagined Scott felt (I couldn't ask him as that movie scene came years after his passing). On the one hand I think it’s important to raise awareness for diseases like CF and on the other hand I know that a kind of forbidden love sob story might not be the right way to do so.

Esas últimas páginas, esa montaña rusa de sensaciones y acontecimientos me dejó con muchísimas lágrimas en los ojos. This book is based on the screenplay of the movie, so I'd imagine there won't be much deviation, but again, it doesn't matter. The only thing that made me continue reading till the end was my own curiosity as to what happens to Stella and Will as CF patients. I know I'll sob in the theater just as I did on the airplane (thank goodness the lights were off), and I'll think about how much I take for granted. It’s also scripted well and the actors’ additional emotional performances impressed me more than the words of the book.

Even a nurse doing it to another patient or a parent or friend asking if they can help could have happened. It's unbelievable to me that our teens are constantly enjoying pudding and milkshakes; yet no one discusses the nutritional issues that CF usually comes with. I thought long and hard about how to review “Five Feet Apart” and to be entirely honest I still haven’t found an answer. CF is bad enough on its own; you don’t need to try and manipulate readers into feeling bad for these characters. Stella the good girl that went through with her regimen and always did what the doctors told her to do, and Will the rebel who didn’t give a damn about his treatments.

Because your life is so much more than treatments and hospitals and life expectancies no matter your chronic health condition. This far more beautiful than that brainless boy who fancied himself in love his enemy's daughter cuz his crush rejected him which is pathetic. Es tan duro y frustrante que, por momentos, quería que mandaran todo al demonio y se lanzaran el uno en brazos del otro, que abrazaran como si el mundo se fuera a acabar, que tiraran a la basura sus mascarillas y se dieran ese beso con el que tanto soñaban. I'm going to let these thoughts steep and possibly come back and update this, but my gut reaction upon finishing this is an icky feeling.stars (best solution is meeting in the middle because this kind of beautiful story doesn’t deserve to get lower points from me but I have to be fair that the script and performances are so much better than the book. I believe it’s urgent to raise awareness about CF and many other chronic illnesses (many of them invisible) countless people live with.
