Dear John (Ha! Like the book and movie),

First of all I am a huge fan of your work. I have read many of your books and I will continue reading more of them. So I am a huge bookworm, nerd, geek, etc….(and I’m proud). And I want to write a book about what people have asked for, but I do not want to say it publicly, so everytime I try to start a book, the connection just ends and I get bored. I was hoping you could email me, since it asks for our email anyways above, and kinda give me tips and stuff on how writing a book. I know there’s a 1% you could email be back since there are other fans and you’re probably busy. But I figured I would try.

– A future author

Hey John,

Bet you didn’t guess you had fans in Romania, did ya?

So, I recently had a strange yet personal interaction with you, though you would have no way of knowing. I was walking through a library and saw a big sign saying “Reducere la carti John Green”…or, % off John Green books and I said to myself…John? Wait, as in, John and Hank green?

To my own shame, I had actually forgotten that you write books outside of what you post on YouTube (which I love), so I thought I would pick the books up. So, I bought “The fault in our stars” (translated as “Under the same star”, which, I feel, doesn’t do the original title justice), “An abundance of Katherines” (translated as “19 times Katherine”) and “Looking for Alaska” (translated as…well, “Looking for Alaska”, it was pretty tough to get this one wrong).

After buying the books, I thought I’d start the lecture with The Fault in our Stars and it was a bit weird. Don’t get me wrong, I really really loved the book, very well written, great characterization, solid sense of humour. But I couldn’t help myself from reading certain passages in your voice in my head, and found myself often thinking “Yeah, that’s totally what John would say” but sometimes “Wow…John? Didn’t really think you had that swimming in you”. And so I sort of discovered a whole new side to you. Beyond you wacky, funny, intelligent way of recommending yourself on screen, I find I now know you just a little bit better for having read your book.

This was eye-opening and fun, and I thank you for the experience.

I’d love to meet you face to face one day, but there are roughly 8465.01 kilometres (or 5 259.91 miles) between Bucharest and Indianapolis, and I don’t really see my office job paying nearly enough in the near future in order for me to get to you.

Nevertheless, I will not lose hope, and even getting a reply from you would be awesome :)

I guess I’ll talk to you later!

DFTBA

Cheers from Bucharest,
Razvan

First would not want to be labeled as just a fan having read his book had the preposterous idea of copying the hazel and inquire about What happens after .. or maybe I do not have a terminal cancer thank god for that. But I have a certain problem which already taking note come at a good time. Moved by emotions’m very radically in a way that is exactly 4:29 am I have work tomorrow and I’m typing without really knowing if I’ll get one if i want to send you email it, or a person to translate. because I live in Brazil Rio de Janeiro to be exact … I mean deep inside where there’s nothing like the wonderful city one little town called Itaboraí. about your book is the fault of the stars WHAT intrigues me is how long the hazel lived after the death of Gus? as isaac was, after the death of hazel, he made new friends? after the death of her parents hazel able to help families? maybe it’s just that.
obs .: I have no intention of going to Indiana if they ask … I have no geniuses to afford me.
Sorry but I use google translate.

Dear John,
I have to say I love your work. While all are great, my favorite would have to be The Fault in Our Stars. Of course I’m not happy that Augustus died, but it just added to the story. I love it every time I read it. It really makes me think, with all of the metaphors involved. Thank you for being such an amazing author!
