Since the TFIOS movie became available On Demand and for digital download and people can now pause and zoom in and stuff, many people have asked who wrote the pages of An Imperial Affliction that appear in the movie.
I did. Executive producer Isaac Klausner asked me to write four pages (the two you see here and the final two pages of the book) for the movie edition of An Imperial Affliction, so I did. In this passage, Anna is recalling intense pain breaking through her high doses of narcotic pain medication.
The book that Hazel reads in the movie is just the four pages I wrote printed over and over again hundreds of times. I have a copy of it in my house; it’s my only souvenir from the movie set.
I don’t really understand how that is a question up for discussion on television news. I mean, even putting aside the gajillion ways that white people are privileged by, for instance, being able to think that whiteness is “normal,” studying world history from Eurocentric perspectives, and etc etc:
- Marijuana use is similar among black and white populations in the U.S., but young African Americans are more than THREE TIMES more likely to be arrested for marijuana possession or use than white Americans.
- Even after accounting for reasons like education disparity, geographical distribution, and occupation, there is a persistent wage gap: White people make are paid more than African Americans due to racial discrimination.
White privilege is a fact of every facet of American life. I realize I’m mostly preaching to the choir here, but this is not a political issue or a subject for debate. It is well-documented and irrefutable.
REASONABLE DOUBT 3 (REASONABLE DOUBT 3) by WHITNEY GRACIA
I am truly appreciative and grateful for what Whitney Gracia did in this awesome finale of her Reasonable Doubt series. I have high expectations with this book but she gave more and more than what was expected of her. Okay, I wish there was more groveling on Andrew’s side but whatever… I honestly think that this is one of the best finale/ending in a book I have ever read. Sad that it’s the ending coz I truly want more and I want to know more about them and the next chapter in their lives but like the old saying goes, "Everything must come to an end" and it’s one helluva a ending.
I love it! I love it! I love everything in it. Whitney did a fantastic job in writing Andrew and Aubrey’s POV that it gave more meaning and debt to what their relationship is and what can be. I love a duel POV and I appreciate that in this book, a side of Andrew is revealed that was not fully shown in the previous installments. I am hurt for what he has to go through but then happy that slowly and surely he is able to move past it that it hurt less and less through time. And Aubrey, I like that she was able to stand on her own and make a point in this book. I was one of her cheerleaders and I am glad that she understand her right and worth and in the end, it was all worth it.
Reasonable Doubt is truly one of my faves. A serial that sure left a mark in my brain & heart. And Whitney Gracia… I will sure read more from her and look forward to her upcoming books.
