Well before I read this book, I actually did think about what the title could mean and why the author wrote it so. Before I read this book I thought the book was about astronauts or something ridiculous. During the book I had some ideas that "The Fault In Our Stars" meant a mistake or something that predestined one's fate. I was kind of close.
