John Green,
Hi. I will be sending you a snail mail letter sometime in the next few weeks (I wrote it physically and can’t be bothered to type it up), but it shouldn’t ge there for ages as I live in New Zealand. It basically says how much I absolutely love your work and writing style and how much you inspire me to improve my writing and how I got so lost in ‘Paper Towns’ that I started it one afternoon and finished it at 3 o’clock in the morning the next day. Lots of love and well wishes, Shannon.


Emma S February 2, 2016 at 10:32 pm

Upon reading “Looking for Alaska”, I have a new heart. A new opinion and perspective on all things life and death. The Great Perhaps, which if you do not know, is, and I quote directly from Google itself, “The Great Perhaps is a state of mind and self where you no longer wonder or dwell on the Perhaps, and you would rather be how you are now than question the Perhaps.”
I would like nothing more, than to converse with Mr.John Green, himself about this. If it is at all possible, I would greatly appreciate Mr. John Green’s email. His book has changed me for the better. I literally cried while reading the last page of his book.
And I understand that many readers probably do not ask for his email, but I am no reader. I am a comprehender, a believer, and a person who really wants to learn and know more about this Great Perhaps. Why have I not heard about this before I read this book? Does the Great Perhaps actually exist? Can I somehow be part of a Great Perhaps? I have a mind stuffed full of questions for Mr.John Green, that I only want to inform HIM about.
Thank you for your time.

Dear,John Green
I was wondering if you were going to write any more books? If so I would love to read them. I have a few questions to ask. 1 What happens to Hazel and her family. Does Hazels family help other family’s with their problems. Also does Hazel die or does she live on and meet someone else? These questions have been haunting my mind for months hopefully you can answer them and thank you.

Dear Mr. John Green,
I as well as some other people on here want help. Not with money or free books or anything serious but simply some help with editing my works. I wish to ask you personal questions on your writings and how you became so famous/popular. I know your a busy man and probably won’t ever have time to read this but if his assistant brother worker anybody could you please let Mr. Green know that I am his biggest fan. I have read all his books and absolutely love them. Other people may have said this before but my favorite is the fault in our stars although I do believe it is to fictitious. My favorite book that you have written with a message is paper towns simply because I see myself in Margo. As I have said before I do have questions that I want answered by you and no one else. I would appreciate it if you did take the time to read this even if you don’t answer back. I am a fellow writer but an amateur and I take a serious interest in where your inspiration comes from. I hope you at least read this for yourself.

Your biggest fan, Izzy

Steve Punter January 20, 2016 at 4:32 pm

I’ve been a long-time of fan of the Mental Floss YouTube channel, on which you appear quite frequently. I recently watched an installment from April of 2013 in which you went through a list of MISPRONOUNCED words. You even seemed to be quite compassionate about it.

Perhaps you could therefore explain to me why you (and a number of other YouTube presenters I also admire, who you seem to have a connection with) have started to pronounce the word EXPERIMENT as though it had an “i” in there the letter “p”. That is, you always seem to say “EX-PIER-EMENT.

I’ve been through every dictionary on the internet that provides an audible example of word pronunciation, and NONE of them seem to say it this way. They all say it the way I’ve always said it, which is EX-PAIR-EMENT.

As a published writer, I figured that you, more than anyone else, should be able to explain this apparent MISPRONUNCIATION of a very common word.


Mika January 21, 2016 at 4:03 pm

Dear John Green

I would like to congratulate him for the excellent work. the fact that some of their stories (I have not read all) do not have happy and complete end to all the characters is inspiring, as the future of Hazel. I think this point amazing by the fact that the world we live in is difficult a “happy end” since not everything happens as we wanted and that’s not a fairy tale. of course I ask myself questions about what else happens the front but I like this open space left by Lord and let myself imagine all sorts of things. I hope you continue to write beautiful stories, emocionates, creative and inspiring as any other I’ve ever had the pleasure to know, I hope to also be able to read all of them. thanks for histotias and take me to a different world.

PS i’m brazilian fan

With love and sincerity,

Sean Chalmers January 21, 2016 at 10:22 pm

Mr Green,

My girlfriend (Mhairi Maclennan) is turning 21 this March and sadly I won’t be with her on her birthday, as I study out in America and she is studying back in our home country – Scotland, UK. She is studying English literature and Spanish a Edinburgh University. By this poorly constrcuted, and badly grammered email, you can tell I am not also studying English! Anyway, for her birthday I wanted to make her a slideshow of videos from me and her friends that she won’t get to see on the day, wishing her a happy birthday etc. Mhairi is a massive fan of your work. She talks my ear off about you on numerous occasions and I know it would mean the world to her to have a short video of you in my slideshow, wishing her a happy birthday.
I hope this is an aceptable request and i would be extremely grateful to hear back from you.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read my message!

Sheena Weiss January 22, 2016 at 11:27 am

Dear Mr. Green,
Your work has inspired, made me cry and given me a new view on life. I have had depression for years and after reading “The Fault in Our Stars” I was able to look at the world through clear lenses for the first time in years. Thanks to therapy and medication I have been able to get on better footing and my life has become more enjoyable. In order to commemorate this I got the word Okay in typewriter font on my inner arm. This though inspired by your work was a reward for being able to say I am okay and actually mean it. I am also an inspiring writer and this was to remind me of the impact that writting can make in your life. I wanted to thank you for your help and the work that you have put out into the world. It does more good than you can imagine. Thank you so much.

I just want to share that love “Looking for Alaska” is a wonderful book I never tire of reading. I appreciate what you have written, and even more than what you have shared with us all.
I read it a long time ago and I love it. But had not the courage to communicate and tell.
I hope you receive my greetings well, and that’s all, I would like especially to communicate with you.
Please answer me in my email, that could be great! thank you so much.


Keshav Sharma January 23, 2016 at 4:49 am


I often read novels in my past time. I came to know about Fault in our stars as a movie but before watching it, I thought of reading the book first. I never read any love story before “The Fault on our stars”, but some how, the book made me addicted, expecting more love genre novels from you. Sometimes love is indispensable. As Times quoted, I am going to quote again ” Damn Near Genius”.

To John:
I read Abundance of Katherines as a teenager who really liked math and I enjoyed it immensely. So I went on to read Paper Towns and your other stuff, still a teenager and it was all fantastic.
Then you went and wrote Fault in Our Stars and I read it as an adult.
And it was one of the most profound books i had ever come across. It has so much wisdom in it and really made me look at life from a different perspective. And so when you say made up stories matter, i really get what you mean now.
Awesome stuff. Thank-you so much for bringing your writing to us. You just keep getting better and better.


Alex Webber January 24, 2016 at 1:31 am

Dear Mr.Green

My name is Alex and I’m 12 yrs. old and I am really obsessed with your books you write.When I read your book looking for Alaska I loved the romance and mystery in the book it gave me anxiety just reading it.The more books I read from you actually get inspired how I relate to them (the books). I just wanted you to know.

To John Green,

I am obsessed with your books. I love your writing and can’t get enough of it! It started off when I read Paper Towns. I recommended it to all of my friends and they loved it just as much as I did. After reading Paper Towns, I read Looking For Alaska. Looking for Alaska is the best book I have ever read! Except for the ending. I cried. Literally I full on started crying. I think I was more upset than ‘Pudge’.

I just wanted to let you know how much you have inspired me to become an author myself. I recently joined Wattpad, so I can read and write books.

Thanks for the books you have written! And all the tears of joy and happiness you brought to my eyes!

Chris Beard January 25, 2016 at 6:27 pm

Mr. Green:

I have to tell you that I watched the movie A Fault in Our Stars and have just finished reading the book. The first question I had was did you lose someone to cancer? It is hard to believe that you have not after reading the book. You got so many of the feeling right. I feel that is incorrect because everyone feels things differently. Maybe I should say you got them right by what I went through when I lost my Husband to cancer.

I have never felt the need to write to an author until I read your book. It had a very deep impact on me and I want to thank you for the experience and all the tears that I shed.

I would go on but I am starting to feel a little like Hazel.

Thank you again,
Chris Beard


Veronica January 26, 2016 at 2:01 pm

Dear John Green,

I just wanted to say that your books have made me fall in love with reading… You probably get a lot of emails like this but I decided that even some of the world’s greatest writers would still appreciate kind words from some of their fans. I have read all of your books (currently reading ‘An Abundance of Katherines) and I am extremely looking forward to reading your new book! Which I hope is coming out soon :)

One of the main reasons I love your writing is because of the way you’re able to attach me to the characters. I quickly fall in love with each and every one of them. Every time I read one of your books I’m astonished by my inability to put it down and stop reading. Thank you for transporting me into your stories, teaching me all the valuable lessons you incorporate in your books and making me appreciate the power of reading.

P.S Forever hoping ‘Looking for Alaska’ turns into a movie.

Kind Regards, Veronica Malka (feel free to use my names in one of your stories ;)


Jami Rae January 26, 2016 at 10:15 pm

I am rereading The Fault in Our Stars and now that I’m (hopefully) in remission from HLH, I realized similarities between me and Hazel. (PICC line, Blueie:), moon-face from steroids, the fear of being a grenade).
My (medical) story is so long but I was diagnosed with HLH (hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis) October 18th in the ICU. After almost 2 months in the children’s unit I was discharged, still on 7 medications and the fear of relapsing. We wont have enough money until we can find a program to cover the costs of genetic testing, and until then I wont know if I’m primary or secondary.
We are drowning in medical expenses and despite my anxiety to go back to school, I’m still trying to find a job. I’m currently homeschooled, but there’s a delay in beginning next semester caused by the side effects (short term memory, spacing episodes and being unable to focus) so I’ve decided to start reading again.
It would mean the world to me if you responded, via Instagram?? (ayyeitsjami)
Also, If there is any way you could share my GoFundMe page:
I absolutely adore your work Mr. Green:)


Nicole Kolikov January 27, 2016 at 8:54 am

Mr.Green, I am a big fan of all your work. I know that you are probably really busy with some more important things to do than read this letter. If you will read It one day, could you please answer my two question. If you want to, of course.
From the start, I had read the fault in our stars. I’d love it. Then I read all your book. But the one I fell in love with was Looking for Alaska. It was the best book I ever read. Alaska a 17 years old girl, who could understand more than a 40 years old women. All those last words made me discover something new. I read Looking for Alaska more than 3 times.

But I still had questions.

My first one was: Did Alaska kissed Pudge because she was drunk, or because she loved him?

And my second: Did Alaska’s dead was a suscide or an accident?

Thank you very much for writing those books, and for probably ready my letter. I hope that you will continued writing some book, cause you can count on me for reading it.

Nicole Kolikov.

We were wondering if any of your books have any connections to your actual life and what you were thinking in the process of writing these books. Thank you!

Victoria Rico February 1, 2016 at 11:40 pm

Hi John Green, I want to tell you that I love your book, The Fault In Our Stars. You are the first author I have ever written to. I got into reading The Fault In Our Stars when my writing teacher started reading it. I asked him if I could borrow it, and I’ve been hooked ever since! I have the movie of The Fault In Our Stars AND I have the book too. I hope I can get to meet you someday. The Fault In Our Stars is my favorite book. Continue to write, and I hope I can get to read more of your books! My name is Victoria Rico and you are my favorite author! Thanks!

What are your thoughts on both postmodernism and postmodernism literature? As you “came of age” in a time when postmodernism was “going out of style,” how do you perceive it and how has it impacted your work?

Thank you and DFTBA,



Alex February 4, 2016 at 2:54 pm

Dear John Green,

After reading The Fault in Our Stars, the depression I’ve been battling eased. Being able to relate to Hazel, (though I do not have cancer, but a mental illness), helped me get over it. True, I am not completely over it, but understanding the point of seeing another disabled person go through life, whether find a boy or new friends (me), I really realized that I could get better. Sure, the book ended with a sad ending, but that only made me fight harder for a happy one. Thanks to you, I’ve stopped all my bad habits. Your stories truly inspire me, and I will always and forever keep it on my bookshelf as a reminder. Thank you.

Cher Mr Green,
avant tout je dois vous dire que j’ai 13 ans et que je suis une fan de vos livres notamment “La Face Cachée de Margo” (“Paper Town”) et surtout de “Nos Etoiles Contraires” (“The Fault In Our Star”).
J’affectionne particulièrement ce dernier, je l’ai lu des dizaines de fois et à chaque fois je pleure au mêmes passages, je rigole à chaque mêmes blagues. En fait, cher Mr Green je vous prend comme un magicien; un magicien ? me diriez vous; et bien oui un magicien car je me suis toujours demandée comment est-ce que vous faites pour retranscrire des émotions aussi forte au travers d’une simple feuille de papier cela reste et restera pour moi un grand mystère. Je tenais aussi à vous dire que ce livre m’aide énormément, il n’y a qu’avec celui-ci que j’arrive à me vider la tête de tous mes problème, problème qui peuvent être insignifiant aux yeux d’adultes mais d’une gravité monstre aux yeux d’une adolescente comme moi, ce livre je vous l’ai déjà dit précédemment, je l’ai lu des dizaines des fois mais à chaque fois j’ai l’impression de le redécouvrir et pourtant à chaque fois je crois le connaître par cœur.
Voilà je pense que j’ai fini ce que je voulais vous dire cher Mr Green et en attendant je veux aussi vous remercier pour toute cette force et tout ce bonheur que vous m’apportez sans même me connaître.

Et je suis au combien désolée d’avoir écrit en français mais je vous assure, il vaut mieux pour vous que vous ne lisiez jamais mon anglais, vous en feriez des cauchemars.

Cordialement, Lucia Donnelly

P.S. j’adore cette réplique du livre : “Je suis tombée amoureuse pendant qu’il lisait, comme on s’endort : d’abord doucement et puis tout d’un coup.”
(As he read, I feel in love the way you asleep : slowly and then all at once.)

Sorry about the last reply. My career class is doing a project on careers. I want to become a writer and be able to share myself to the world. I am supposed to ask or interview someone for this project over email or phone so hear I am. I will write you a list of questions and you choose to answer them or not.
-How old were you when you started this job/career?
-What is difficult about it?
-What’s the best thing about this career?
and What advice would you give me for this career?
Thank you,
Sincerely Sadie


Freja Rasmussen February 6, 2016 at 6:13 pm

Dear John (Haha ikr C what i did there)
My name is Freja but you can call me FAIA! I have a best friend (BFF Forever ((Yes two forevers)))
We have been BFFF’s for almost 6 years and we’re really happy! I think you should write a book about me and my BFFF!
As i said We’re really happy, but WOOPSI FUCKING DOOPSY PLOT TWIST! She lives in freaking fucking Cyprus, so i never goddanm see her and i miss her so much, i cant even describe it! now go write a best-seller about us because we be cute AF and nobody ever notices us! We’re both from Denmark, so we’re like really not very hot, because its fucking cold here as well! Our lives are shit without each other.
Thank you for your time and effort in making us superstars, so we can live in London together, and see each other and hug all the fucking time and love each other (Not in that way, well maybe just once but that would be so stupid)
Yours sincerely ( yes ikr thats a hard word to spell)

Stacy February 7, 2016 at 11:10 pm

Dearest John of Green,
First of all, I love your books, but everyone commenting on this page probably does too considering that they wanted to contact you in some way. Now, I am doing a project in Spanish class where I have to ‘interview’ someone that has the career I want to do in the future. At first, I had no idea what I wanted to do, but my Spanish teacher was like ‘okay! career talk! go!’ like thirty seconds after she told us about the project. I was planning on saying biochemist because I enjoy Biology and Chemistry, but I love to write. I blurted out author when my turn came around, and I sat there dumbfounded as I thought about what I had done. I write stories on a website called Wattpad, and I got good reviews so I thought ‘why the hell not?’. That was my first mistake. Here I am now writing a comment on this website just to satisfy my Spanish teacher. I asked her who should I interview since I don’t really know any authors. She told me to contact you as soon as possible, but I am really contacting you two days before part of the project is due. I hope you do reply even though you said you don’t reply to snail mail. I just want to ask you a few questions, so I can translate them into Spanish and get a decent grade on the project. Contact me by email if you’re willing to help. It’d be a great opportunity.

Take care,


Natalie M February 8, 2016 at 2:59 am

Hello hopefully you are reading this I have a idea on a second fault in our stars. Please contact me so I can share my wonderful idea with you!
