You will never know who I truly am nor will you know my life and what I see on a daily bases. I’ve read your book the fault in our stars based on a friend whom asked me to check it out from our local library for her since, after briefly reading the back and finding interest I held it from her till I finished, it did not take long since I could not put it down.

You won’t catch me reading much, I’ve maybe read a couple text books and right now I’m reading Waldon by Henry David Thoreau since I enjoy his ideology yet novels have never been my favorite style of book to read, I’m more into non-fiction. After reading quickly through your book I felt the need not to watch the movie since Hollywood tends to ruin everything but due to a lack of options on entertainment after watching majority of your sci-shows that I found interesting I obtained a copy and watch it.

I knew I would be emotionally moved by this movie since my mother has either stage 3 or stage 4 lung, stomach and possibly brain cancer and is currently suffering with it, I never asked because I don’t think I can handle the answer. If their is any spelling or grammatical error in the next paragraph it’s because I’m tearing up and closed them while I typed.

The last movie I’ve cried for was Marley and me when it originally came out and most movies rarely get to me but the funeral scene in the movie caused me to break down into a general stream of tears and caused me to look back at my past girlfriend relationships and my current relationship with my mother.

I know you’ll never reply, maybe in the future you will see this, just know that your book moved me to a place that is very hard to put me at, I’m a 19 year old male from a moderately good home with a warped sense of humor that tends to laugh at both the concept of god and the concept of death for I see god as a creation and death as a inevitability. Just know your book moved me emotionally and your movie moved me in such an indescribable way. I’m going to now have to go look at failure videos to regain my sense of joy, thank you for the feelings, I hope one day I will meet you and we shall have a one on one conversation about life, science, technology and the world around us, it is now officially put on my bucket list to meet you.

Best regards.

Dear John Green,
Me being stupid and not knowing what snail mail is, I just wrote 2 pages of it and sent it to Dutton Books For Young Readers. Anyways I would appreciate it if you can explain descriptively like all of your other books do, on how you are not a Pornographer, like your youtube video but make it better. I am wanting to read each and everyone of your books because you have awesomeness writing skillz. But the sad part which is why I need you is because my mom thinks that because you have made your books to be just like LIFE, as in sex, drugs, and the bad language she won’t let me read them. This is very heartbreaking because I have never been so interested into one ordinary but not ordinary book that i have never emailed an Author to help me. LOOKING FOR ALASKA caught my interest just by seeing the cover. I did research on it and I have a couple questions. What got me into YOU just unordinary awesome John Green, was Fault In Our Stars, and my history teacher introduced us to your history youtube channels. First question, if you could can you do a shoutout in one of your videos to New Buffalo Middle School in MI, especially to my hot teacher Ms. Fambro but don’t say I called her hot!! Also the metaphor from Fault In Our Stars from Augustus saying “You put the killing thing right between your teeth, but you don’t give it the power to do its killing.” Is why I watch the movie over and over and over again. So don’t get mad if I get this wrong because I have not read the book Looking For Alaska yet but I want to with the help from you. Miles who wants to learn about Famous peoples last words, Famous as Augustus who wants to be remembered and oblivious, is there any connection between them?? I believe thats all but all I would love is if HOPEFULLY I could get an email back from THE GREAT AMAZING AWESOME JOHN GREEN explaining why I should be able to read all of your books, Especially LOOKING FOR ALASKA!!! Please
P.S I am in 8th grade Middle School
Yours truly,
Brandon Biolette

Trey Stillens February 28, 2015 at 4:06 am

Mr. Green my name is Trey. I just watched and read the book The Fault in Our Stars and I felt like I wanted to cry but I also felt like Hazel Grace and I wanted to ask a few questions, like what happens to Hazel? Like when does she die like what age and what does she do to remember her “Star crossed lover” Gus? Also when Hazel dies does the eulogy that Gus/Peter wrote for her get used? If she dies before her parents do what do the parents do, I understand that her mom helps other people with their child dying but, what I’m trying to say is what happens when she dies like do her parents really go trough and help all of those other people or do they go into depression. Also what do Gus’s parents do after their one and only child died

I really hope you don’t pull a Peter Van Houton on me, I would really love to hear these answers. I also wish that you could make a sequal to Fault in Our Star’s. Like maybe she meets another person but than it turns out that when she had sex with Gus he got her pregnant and she goes trough with keeping it but when she names it she names it Gus to remember her father (which kind of answers my last question). Maybe you can call it The Fault in Our Skies (a sequal to Fault in Our Stars). If you do that I will like crawl up in a corner and die (Not litaraly). Thank you for your time John Green.

Hello john green,
I really like you film and you book ” das schicksal ist ein mieser varräter” and i want to read what come at next …?!
Will hazel died?
I would be happy for a answer


Tanusree Dutta February 28, 2015 at 10:37 am

Look dear friend!! I am having some dangerous disease developing into my body too as in the book the author describes!!But I still have no regrets about life!
It’s not that my life is perfect I mean its difficult to happen so!
But still I am fighting !!with the world!
And you must know that the real thing is not about living or dying as we all are mortal and we all come to Earth with ‘purpose’and once it is done we make our way back to the God!!!!There’s nothing to be afraid about it!
Since ‘Hazel’had completed her purpose to be at least ’15y’ ,she makes her way to Augustus very soon!!
But please don’t ask me the date cause John didn’t tell me in his mail and not really to any one on this planet!!!!!!!
Take care!


Becca March 1, 2015 at 3:12 pm

Random question but which email did you send yours to, and got a reply from? Xx


Tanusree Dutta March 2, 2015 at 7:56 am

Dear I didn’t send my questions through an e-mail but I sent him an actual mail addressing to New York and I got my answer after waiting
almost three and a half months!!


Tanusree Dutta February 28, 2015 at 10:23 am

Well John I must say that your book (The Fault in Our Stars)is uncomparable to any other tragedic story I have read so far!!
In other words -Beyond the Pain of human life there is the Pain of human bondings ,made with some sort of love that keeps every one intact at their own place!! I know that I might be thinking a little too much but that is what my heart makes my brain to agree!
But I must let you know that if the next time you kill another character in your story then we i.e your loving readers are truly ,literally gotta get a Heart attack!!!!!!!!!!(But still we can’t stop admiring your book ,even in hospital bed,can we?)


Abi J. February 28, 2015 at 7:20 pm

I must say that is is not abnormal for me to be overly addicted to a book (I have read Hunger GAmes over 5 times and that is all three books). After just finishing Fault in Our Stars for the 2nd time in a few days i got Paper Towns… It took me less that 24 hours to get through it. What i am trying to say is your writing is AMAZIING!!!!!! The first time i read Fault in our Stars i could not put it down ( which wasen’t good based on the simple fact that I was in the middle of a dance show where i had over 8 dances…. i wanted to bring the book with me on stage.) The movie was then equally amazing and i find my self wanting to get every other book you have published and will soon publish. Thank you for giving me another book to read other than the 5 i have read over and over the last few years, my mo thought i was crazy.


Katilynn Muth February 28, 2015 at 11:06 pm

Dear John Green,
I know I am going to end up being just another comment in the swarm of your feedbacks, but I couldn’t sleep well without leaving my opinion on your writing style. I have recently purchased The Fault in Our Stars, Looking for Alaska, and An Abundance of Katherines and hopefully I can say I own Paper Towns soon. All of them took me on a emotional rollercoaster, and I highly enjoy the way you describe feelings of characters.
I am only 15 years old, but I read and write more than I hang out with friends. In my life I have set a goal to publish a book that connects a reader to the story as well as you do. You are such a inspiration to young writers like myself, and I simply wish to say thank you.
My family has seen me laugh and cry while reading your books, and I can reread any of them over and over. I could only dream of meeting you, but I’m not living in a perfect world of opportunities. To keep this comment somewhat short, I’ll end this with a thank you for allowing me to escape into different realities.
Best regards!
Katilynn Muth

James Anderson March 1, 2015 at 3:08 am

Dear Mr Green:

I am pleased to be able to reach you. I know you probably recieve this kind of messages a lot but I would like to thank you for a great novel… just finished The Fault in our Stars and I really think it was amazing. It made me laugh a lot, and also I suffered in enormous quantities when Gus Waters died. He is hands down my favorite character since a long time ago. Well… I think I’ve said everything I wanted to. Again I thank,you for an amazing novel and an amazing time I spent reading it.

Your fellow writer


Hallea Jones March 1, 2015 at 1:48 pm

Hi John,
I absolutely loved your book Looking for Alaska and while reading it was always picturing myself as Alaska because she has the same kind of personality as I do. I am an actress and it is the biggest dream of mine to be a part of bringing Looking for Alaska alive on the big screen.
Now, I totally understand you are not the casting director and you have no control over the movie casting, but I was hoping to just keep a tab on the chances of auditions. I have an agent, KG Talents, based in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, and I would absolutely love to audition for the role if the ability comes up.
You’re an amazing writer and I look forward to hearing back from you. (if my email doesn’t get lost in thousands of fan mail, which I assume it will, unfortunately)
Thanks so much John,
Hallea Jones

Hello John green my name is riley and I’m writing a essay on you because u are my favorite author I wanted too ask. Why did u write the book ” fault in our stars” ?? Please get back too me as soon as possible


Tanusree Dutta March 2, 2015 at 11:41 am

Dear John,
I have just completed reading your book (The Fault in Our Stars) for the fourth time! But I couldn’t held back my tears each time I read your dramatic book!
I was never willing to cry may be, because I know the fact very well from my childhood that ‘man is mortal being’ !! We can’t expect our Loved ones to be around us for throughout life,Can We?
But the way you just made those Cancer survivors to be each others companion as well as sword was literally unbelievable!! I mean that ,for a while I thought
