It’s an amazing paragraph in favor of all the web viewers; they will obtain benefit from it I am sure.

So what if you’re not on Tumblr, Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook and never intend on being on Tumblr, Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook? I want to have a reply, because I have questions about some of your books. Are you like Colin from “An abundance of Katherines”? By that I mean slightly OCD and suffering from acute oddness. :-)


Abraham October 20, 2014 at 6:50 am

At school some of my friends recommmend a book, that you’ve written. I’ve enjoyed a fault in our stars, tho I don’t understand a perspective of a girl (I [kinda] partially do understand since/because I have a sister). I liked this book whether it was written from Hazel’s POV [point of view].
I’ve enjoyed it very much

Elisa favaretto October 20, 2014 at 4:00 pm

I’m a person who likes the fault in our stars, but I know that I donot ever answer
It is impossible to thin that she will read the post, but I’ll try.
I do not know it the ideas are finite or if he wanted to do as the writer drunk but a book con not and well, is out of all.
She understand us young or bis book understand us disappers no longer exists ,we do not want a the fault in our stars 2 but a fine.
That book is so full of imperfections that makes it perfect.
However, our greatest Dream is that he is tenere to answer.

Its a special fan of the emotions that gave us.


lexie lockhart October 20, 2014 at 4:42 pm

Lavin October 20, 2014 at 5:22 pm

OK, JOHN GREEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have a great song for PAPER TOWNS and I think it fits in perfectly with the part when Q and the others leave before Grad to go find Margo, or, the closing credits. THE SONG IS “Up We Go” by Lights.



Miranda Garcia October 21, 2014 at 1:28 am

John Green:

I am awake at 12:15 a.m. writing this response because I just finished Fault in Our Stars (mostly, as I had to stop a little short of the end for my sanity’s sake) and as a writer myself, but more importantly as a sick person, I found that I had to say what an immensely accurate and honest job you did portraying what it is like mentally and emotionally to be devastatingly ill. From being a grenade to being something completely other to not crying in order to spare others feelings and finally to that complete desperation to not be so desperate, you nailed it. For years, I have tried to explain to the healthy in my life what a moral dilemma it is to include anyone in your life when you fully comprehend that your pain and existence combined with their love for you will break their hearts. I have never read or seen such an accurate depiction.

In addition, as a young woman, I lost the man that I believed to be the only great love of my life. I did lose him to illness, per se, but nonetheless, this is also an area you depicted rather well. Except, however, for the fact that you don’t only call the voicemail once, but over and over and over until the day the phone is finally disconnected. It was so accurate, in fact, that I was unable to read the last bit of the book, even ten years later, as it brought back the pain of those first several days so intensely it was as if I was back in them.

Several days ago I was explaining to my best friend, before beginning the book, how the best pieces of writing so deeply touch parts of us that we can fully connect to them, because the story is our story, the feelings our feelings. So despite hours of crying, even when not actually reading the book, I thank you so much for it.

Your writing was truly affected my life.

Lynn Oliver October 21, 2014 at 2:29 pm

Dearest John Green

I’ve read most of your work and I am utterly intrigued.

The Fault in Our Stars has brought some sense back into my life, (Not kidding), and since Hazel Grace and Augustus had the opportunity to contact Peter Van Houten, I was wondering if I could do the same.

What happens to Hazel after Augustus’ passing? And does life get better for her? Does she fight the cancer and survive?

Please reply. I need to know.

Thank you for your time.
Lynn Oliver

A summary of our history!
In March 2010, I began to participate in the Prayer Group “New Generation”. From this day on, my life began to change, God put in my path friends and some new friends from the past, but these were new friends who have changed my life.
Sometime later, more or less in April 2010, I started attending the house of a family’s Prayer Group. This family welcomed me, and welcomed all the other members of the group that walked by. I began to identify myself with them. Each in a different way. The father, with his simple, honest and sincere way. The mother, as a family leader, a person who stands in front of everything and everyone, a warrior woman plenty of fiber. The middle child, identified myself because it meant that I remembered from my childhood, playful, friend, companion. The youngest daughter, this is the best, one angelic and sincere smile, a joy that does not fit inside, a simple way to conquer all. And older daughter. Yes this came to change everything in my life. I do not know how to explain, but with his charm, his deep, penetrating gaze, his smile pure, simple, sincere, his joy and attention. I do not know. I only know who won my heart, but I refused at first, because I thought it was something in my head.
In May 2010, I was called to be part of the Music Ministry Group. Best day of my life so far, I could not wait to see what God brought challenges for me, despite knowing that his intention was to express my gift to His favor, nothing more fair, my gift of playing came from God and He alone is worthy to see and hear what I have to serve Him. Good. First challenge then. My first day as a musician in the ministry would be on the eve of Mother’s Day. That day. There would be no better day for God to test me. Mothers Day. So, the man I mentioned earlier asked a very simple song, “Maria of My Childhood,” and asked if anyone knew and I answered without thinking: I know! We were rehearsing and singing girls could not sing it. If anything I learned from this family and to this day I bring with me is: “God does not make mistakes.” And then he asked me: Do you sing? I replied, very scared, “Canto”. Ready, was fulfilled what God wanted us that day. It seems incredible, but I’m sure everyone will remember it.
Also in May, had organized a barbecue at the home of this family and I, along with the staff of the prayer group was invited, but only showed up after I left my job. Special day, wonderful, wordless. As well. At the end of the day, everyone was going away and leaving the mess for the home owners arrumarem, I felt an obligation to help them and said he would wash all the dishes. This is where my story begins to change where my heart begins to speak louder than my head, where I was sure that God had something important to me. Anyway, I was not going crazy. For all that I felt for the oldest daughter, had come this far more intense day. While washing the dishes, the landlady said he needed to talk to me about a girl who was into me and I said I also needed to talk to her about the same reason, but would not talk to the same person. It was then that I had no more doubt in my heart and told the truth: “I’m the end of your daughter.” Amazement. But it had apparently ended there, but then the other day, she called me into her house and told me to talk to her daughter.
And the courage to do so? Well, over the weekend, I called her to talk. I explained to her all my feelings, pure and true, it was on 05/06/2010, I remember very well because he had never been so shaky in front of a girl. All I had in my heart I told her. She listened to me and said he liked me very much, but he felt something for another person. Said there were no problems, just wanted her to know what was going on with me. It was then that his mother called us to talk, gave us the guidance that we had to pray together to see if it was really God’s will and we should do the reading of the book of Tobit. We did from then on.
Time passed. And on 26/06/2010 I was dying to talk to her again, but did not have room, our friends will not let us to talk. To take her to his home, said nothing, but to arrive at your home before fire me, I said it again. Put out all over again. I felt that she was different, however, for being inside your home and not find it correct, that I would not kiss her and kissed her, but she also felt the wanted (if you’re reading this now, I’m sure will cry).
My enchantment had not passed. The next day, Sunday, 27/06/2010, I sent him a message inviting her to an ice cream. Accepted. The afternoon we left, we took an ice cream and sat down to talk. I remember as if it were now, those clear and bright eyes looking at me, that beautiful mouth, pardon the word, sexy, shaking, do not know if nervousness, like crying or wanting to kiss. Cold hands but warm body. And then after much talk, at 17:15, happened. Our first kiss happened. Honestly, I felt as if the world had stopped kissing her and have thanked God for having it placed in my way, I knew it was no accident that God really had put in the way of one another and certainly with a most purposes.
So it was agreed that we would “get” to know ourselves better, but this was not God’s plan. On Monday, 28/06/2010, to come home from work in my house, there was a publication in Orkut. Karla entered a community “I Love My Boyfriend Evandro”. Scared. And when talking to said that she had scared me but had loved the idea, because it really was what I wanted to date you.
Since then, we started dating and we continue to stand together and in our prayers because we put a purpose we are always praying together at the feet of Our Lord to strengthen us.
Fact that united us even more. It was exactly 20 days we were dating and she needed from the Mission in Tocantins. That pang. A week without being able to see her. Our communication, SMS messages or only small and short connections. What boredom. The week was nothing. The heart of longing and ruminated increasingly believed that it was God who brought us together. Every phone conversation, the voice of weeping with longing still increasing and consoled one another saying, “calm is almost over, soon we’ll be together again” (remember that?). To distract her head, realized one of his greatest desires. Having a room of 101 Dalmatians, you still cry when you look at the walls? because I cry every time I remember the days that your mother and I were talking, brooding, longing, and painting the bedroom. The main increase could not miss the chorus of the song that marked us: “Today I thought both in two, I could not leave after us and I came here just to say. I’m crazy about you, I’m crazy for you!. “- Rose of Sharon, Cd “After Winter”, track 11 – Just A Love Song. 11 number that clearly shows that we need each other. (tears).
This is just the beginning. On his return from the mission, a surprise. All our friends in the prayer group helped me make my first and I think the most beautiful declaration of love that I could do for you. Guess. Right to hear “Just A Love Song” sung by us and entitled to our commitment to alliances wrapped in the middle of a box with truffles. Remember? I remember his face at the time of happiness, tears streaming down to hear the song and see the walls of your room. Do it all again if need be, is the most lovely and beautiful scene that I keep you in my memory and that no one will take that away from me, ever.
A lot has happened since then. We had our fights, but thank God always get it right on. There are details that I’m sure, were and will be marked forever as happy and very important moment for us, as the day that almost rolled our first time and I was afraid, and the day it happened, that really was the most special day for me because it was the day you said to me the first time eye to eye. Miss if I could go back in time every day to see you, feel your embrace, your smell and hear your voice.
Year 2011, God gives us the greatest gift we could hope for. My sister invites us to be godparents of my niece. Happiness is not enough to express what we feel. Never seen you cry so much happiness, ever. God worked straight with us. And then in 2012 came the christening. What a simple, but very important for us party, despite the cold it was the day our hearts were warm and we were talking to each other: “I can not wait to have our son to celebrate even more this time.” (tears again).
But then in October 2013 Deception. Finished what seemed to be a beautiful love story. Cries and tears marked this day for me. But God is greater. Where we met? As we began our courtship? Yeah, the world turns and on 30/10/2013, two days after the end of our relationship, in a prayer meeting, God puts us together again and make our promises and we thank God for having brought us together again.
February 2014 Who knew. Grooms. What a joy, pleasure to enjoy the happiness she was feeling with the person that I really love and also enjoy their happiness. We had some problems until the day of engagement, yes, but thank God, uffa, one more step was initiated.
It seemed that everything would work out. We were plans to build or buy a home for us. But then at the end of September 2014, I lost my mind, I was nervous, I know there is no justification. But I ended up fighting with the love of my life, and more, to hurt and hurt a lot with words, words that I still hear in my head and can not forgive me and know that every day you hear them also. Words that take a long time to heal the evil that you did. And then, two days later, 01/10/2014, our relationship is over, entirely, it seems.
I always said that he loved her so much, and was unable to hurt her, completely did the opposite. I can not explain in words how I am. In short, very badly hurt because who I thought was the most important person to me, one in which my dream has always been to get married and have a family. In words too, am unable to say what I really feel for you, when I stand before you, I am unarmed to tell you what I feel, your look, your way of being rob me the words. I just wanted to kiss and hug you and say simply that I love you.


parisa October 22, 2014 at 4:58 pm

Hi Mr Green , just wanted to thank you for your wonderful book , it changed my life in a good way , thank you thank you for such a touching book , you can’t imagine how much I love Hazel and Gus’s love and I’m wishing for such a love like theirs ,thank you again


Aditi October 22, 2014 at 10:57 pm

Hello,Mr Green.I was so teary eyed after reading your best selling book,or i must say the best heartstealing book-The Fault In Our Stars.I really loved to read it.However I am also keen to read Hazel’s favourite novel,”An Imperial Affliction”.I searched for the book on many sites,also tried using by the name of Peter Van Houten,but I came to know that the book does not exist.After reading TFIOS,i really wish to read AIA ,too.Please fulfill your biggest fan-readers wish. yours faithfully, bookworm ;)


preety October 23, 2014 at 12:08 am

Dearest John green, first of all I want to thank you for giving us a novel as touching as The Fault In Our Stars, nothing feels more fulfilling than Gus and Hazel’s love for one another. But the fact that touch me the most about the book is the positivity in their love, the maturity in Hazel and Gus’s spirit. Apart from TFiOS, I am an avid fan of all your books and Paper Town in a way is a wonder, could not put it down from the very moment I started to read it. Thank you for being with me like my best friend, always reminding me that ‘ life is a roller coaster that only goes up ”’ Thank you so much..


Jeanne October 23, 2014 at 11:37 am

Right away I am going away to do my breakfast, once having my breakfast coming again to read additional news.


crystal October 23, 2014 at 3:16 pm

Dear John Green,

My name is Crystal Sanchez, Im an 8th grader at Marguerita Elementary School. Im in love with your work and your book “The Fault In Our Stars”. How I came upon this book is I saw a lot of people reading it and heard it was a really good book. They said it was sad and about two people that have cancer and they fall in love, I thought it was sweet and interesting so I bought it and read it. Im so glad I read it, Its like my favorite book and movie right now.
Hazel is an amazing character. She goes for what she wants even though she has lung problems. She does everything she wants with her air tank, If i was her i probably would be scared to do the things she did thinking that my lungs would stop anytime. Augustus is also an amazing character. Even though Augustus has a fake leg, he goes on all these adventures. If i ever had a fake leg like Augustus I would be nervous to go anywhere with it. He acts like if it was his normal leg attached.
In the middle of the story I thought Hazel was going to die at the end of the story of her lungs stopping, but when I read about Augustus tube out and infected, I started getting second thoughts of who’s going to die. I started crying my eyes out on the part when Augustus attended his pre funeral. When they called Hazels house for the news that Augustus died, I got shocked i never thought it would be that quick.I though they could live together and have an amazing life together.
That was the first book i read from you and I absolutely loved it, I will be definitely reading more books of yours. I also have a question about peter van houten, what ever happened to him after Hazel rejected him from her car. Hope you have the time to read this and respond back. Thank you!


Marissa October 23, 2014 at 9:59 pm

I just want to start by saying THANK YOU! Thank you for being an amazing writer and for impacting so many peoples’ lives. I feel that I can speak for most teens when I say that we can relate to your books and it makes us even more attached to the charters and the book. I enjoy your writing because it makes me think and reflect on my own life. I have just finished Paper Towns and I loved it! I wish I could run away like Margo and escape the stress of the world. But of course if I ran away today, there would be an amber alert out for me in a matter of hours. But I also wish I could go on a journey like Quentin by putting together clues and solving a puzzle to find a friend. It would also be cool to get away with spray painting the side of someones’ house and putting a fish under a seat in a car. Paper Towns is the third book I have read of yours. I have also thoroughly enjoyed The Fault in Our Stars(of course) and Looking for Alaska. You have succeeded in making me cry and laugh all three times. I really liked your first movie( The Fault in Our Stars) and am looking forward to Paper Towns. Thank you again for impacting my life.

Many thanks for posting when you have the opportunity,
Guess I’ll just bookmark this web site.


Kyla Manning October 23, 2014 at 10:44 pm

Hi, my name is Kyla and your book Fault in Our Stars has been the only book I’ve actually read completely in my 12 years. When i started the book i was very interested. As I read i just wanted to keep reading. I stayed up all nigh plus during school i read the book. My teacher must have thought i was crazy because she went to call on me and there i was crying in my seat reading your book.
Your book has helped me realize so much in life. I use to think my life was hard. Not seeing my dad in almost 3 years because your so terrified of him and he abuses you, but now i think there are many thinks that could be worse. I cant even imagine being in Hazel’s place. Knowing your not going to liver as long as you wish, knowing your going to die.
I’ve watched the movie Fault in Our Stars over 60 times and every time I still cry. I think every girl would love to have a relationship like Hazel and Augustus.
The one think I always say to my friends when they talk about Fault in Our Stars, or anyone who says they have never seen it is, “There are infinite numbers between 0 and 1. There’s .1 and .12 and .112 and an infinite collection of others. Of course, there is a bigger infinite set of numbers between 0 and 2, or between 0 and a million. Some infinities are bigger than other infinities. A writer we used to like taught us that. There are days, many of them, when I resent the size of my unbounded set. I want more numbers than I’m likely to get, and God, I want more numbers for Augustus Waters than he got. But, Gus, my love, I cannot tell you how thankful I am for our little infinity. I wouldn’t trade it for the world. You gave me a forever within the numbered days, and I’m grateful.”
The part i cried the most on way when Augustus attended his own funeral.
Thank you for being such a great writer and thank you for letting me realize life inst so bad.

So if I have questions about your books, to which do I write to?


Jennifer Pridgen October 24, 2014 at 9:11 pm

John Green. You have managed to show me a side of love storys ive never experienced before. In The Fault in our Stars i absolutely love how they had a instant connection and just the way there entire relationship worked out. I dont like however how he died so soon i feel like he should have lived a little longer to actually give them a chance to live a realtionship. Why was Hazel so concerned and focused on her dieing one day and then the love of her life comes along and has survived his cancer then it just comes back and kills him. Its heart breaking i actually have a question how did he get that infection when he was at the store? Did it just appear? I am confused on that.


csto October 25, 2014 at 1:40 pm
