Dear John,

-the fault in our stars is a glaring defeat
-looking for alaska is brilliant
-you’re style is comfy and predictable
-I read paper towns as a novelty, nothing more than an antecedent to going see the film

I feel the need to belittle (insult) you because it’s 3:01 and I just finished your book, a book that was supposed to serve as a simple placeholder of time. a far cry from the elegant complexity of Borges or the sheer enormity of Vonnegut-thought.

You, John Green, were supposed to be simple, I was supposed to have outgrown you. Agloe was too honest. It’s now 3:18 and I’m flipping through the last pages trying to pin point the moment where it all broke down for me, but it’s muddy with suspicion. having read other books by you, I knew the possibilities going in. But this ending, I just need to have a conversation with the person who had the courage to end the book like this. I know this is a clear violation of the traditional author – reader relationship but being as you’re still alive I might as well put the thought out there into the universe.

I’m currently in the mist of writing some fiction myself and I could really use a (mentor/ Yoda) right about now.

your writing may be simple, you’re stories may be straight forward. you’re plots > predictable, but your utterly fearless exploration of human emotion brought me to tears

I stand in awe of you John Green

with rare sincerity,

Andres Duarte

I just came here to ask John something but your comment caught my eye, and even though I know you’re waiting for John’s response and not some stranger’s, I gotta say I loved the way you explained it, “exploration of human emotion”. It took me off guard as well and it was… edifying.
I believe John Green’s book are sometimes overrated for the wrong reasons and many others underrated for the right ones. But through his straight forward writing and predictable plots (as you called them) there is so much more, there is this huge gamma of different colors.
I always love it when it is not just black or white and he definitely knows how to add the colorfull message.

Another 10% do it kind of well although not at

Hello. Recently in my small town that I live in, there has been a death of a boy that had only turned 17 the day before he died, which was July 25, 2015. I know this is much to ask, but I sorta want to write a book about it, but I wanted some advice. Even if you wrote the book, that would be even better. Now that I think of it, this was a really stupid idea, but anyways. I love all of your books, and you have inspired me to write more, so thank you. Goodbye.

Just so you know I am a crappy writer,
Your books make me laugh and cry. I keep a journal and express how I feel about your books and it helps me break it down.When I was younger I used to get mad at books that didn’t have a fairy tale ending and did not have a sequel but now I realize that no matter what the author writes or even if one of the main characters are dead their story will never end. I also don’t like to say Happy Endings I like to say leaving it on a nice note.

DeaR, John,
It iS reAllY, lAT.e herE! In ISraEl, and I’m really getting tired of writing like the incredible, brilliant M.R.S.
I don’t even know where to start.
First of all I must say how much I admire you and your definitely brilliant, inspiring and eyes opening writing.
So far I have read TFIOS and Paper Towns and Looking for Alaska is the next one I’m about to read and I can’t tell you how much your books have opened my eyes and made me see things differently, made me look at my life from so many other points and inspired me.
I wish I could meet you one day and ask you all those questions I have in my mind.
You have such a beautiful affiliation on life!
Keep writing. Please! I love your books so much!
Margo is so… I can’t even explain… amazing!
And tfios has so much to say!
And paper towns is… wow.. I mean it is just… I understand it. I can feel what Margo means when she talk about the paper town even though she really talks about the paper girl she feels she is.
Anyway don’t ever stop writing!

Lia.

Caro Sr. Green,

Ainda que seja absurdamente cansativo ler comentários agradecidos à sua publicação inteligente de a culpa é das estrelas, é meu dever como leitor, como pessoa, fazer um agradecimento. As pessoas passam a vida dizendo como foi bom ter lido um determinado tipo de livro, como foi gratificante ler determinada frase, mas esquecem de agradecer ao autor delas.

E apesar de achar frustrada a minha tentativa de que o senhor leia esse comentário, eu o agradeço. Porque a sequencia de números entre 0 e 1 tornou-se mais proveitosa pra mim. Não tenho nenhum Cancer como a Sra. Hazel, mas sei que somos destinados ao fim e que escolhemos quem iremos ferir.

Obrigado Sr. Green, por acrescentar mais numeros a minha vida.

Atenciosamente,

Sr. Rodrigues.

Hey, hum, nothing too much important, actually it’s just a tip. I do not live in the US and here in Brazil a lot of people don’t agree, just like me, with the actresses that were “chosen” to play Alasca Young in the movie. So, hum, I’d like to give you my opinion and I think you should try Kaya Scodelario, cuz she’s kinda perfect for the character I guess. Hum, that’s it, I hope you send me a reply and thanks anyway.

HI John!
I love all your books, they are amazing and i really like them!
I have got a question: Where can i get an autographed box set?
I want a box set, autographied, of course, but now in amazon isn´t posible to find the limited edition and I’m so sad. Is there any way to get it? I don’t live in the Usa, I’m from Sapain so I hope to find these incredible editions in this amazing box set.
Thank you for all.

Chloe Elizabeth Hazlewood July 26, 2015 at 10:53 pm

Dear John Green,

That is how I start this, yes? Beware, John Green, this is another pretentiously written message from an idle teenager with too much time on her hands, a devoted reader and aspiring writer – which of course serves as no threat to your work. I am, in every sense, astoundingly quintessential, other than the fact that I have a name entirely befitting of one of your novels.

Now, it’s very probable that this site is in fact run by a PA or an SEO somewhere, hence, you will never read this message. But for it to make any mark, for it to be here and potentially read by yourself, that is important to me. So, here I am, hopping for chance to come and strike me as one of the lucky ones.

Your novel, Paper Towns, made me think a lot. Of course, that was intended by yourself – because even when a story is just a story it is never just a story. Specifically, I’m thinking in terms of Margo Roth Spiegelman. I can relate to her. Of course I can relate to her. The need to flee from her 2D world (a parallel to my spur of the moment decision to move to the centre of Manchester at the age of 16 from a tiny village in Scotland, smack bang in the middle of that oft told land of The-Middle-Of-Nowhere) to the frustration with the idea of ourselves others create.

But now, as opposed to preaching about the connection I had with your story, which I know you know I felt, I’ll speak about the main thoughts your novel triggered, and address you with a couple of questions. I do hope you’ll divulge unto myself some opinions and answers. I also hope it’s clear what exactly is spoken rhetorically. My mind is blurred with all I wish to say.

Since reading your novel, a subject I often find myself pondering is consciousness. Is that which we perceive within the bounds of our consciousness what defines our own selective realities? Can I really bring myself to believe that anyone but myself is possessing of a consciousness, since it is true that I cannot perceive anything but my own? Does the idea of myself I project to others change the reality of me? And if it is true that perception defines reality, then in reality, within a collective consciousness, i.e. the sum of all consciousnesses to ever be, is this world in chaos, run amok with contrasting yet wholly similar gods, magic, heaven and hell and nothing at all?

If so, this world is indeed in a beautifully dystopian state, humanity paradoxical, powerful. People are walking contradictions, this is a truth, in one moment altruistic until the end, and in the next, arrogant and filled with hatred. Our species is a strange one, this is true, and we comfort ourselves with the “knowledge” that we are indeed the most intelligent of all species, supplementing boredom for social hierarchies and points systems to define social stature. We’d like to fool ourselves, but that’s all a job is, isn’t it? We separate ourselves from the animals with our far more sophisticated distractions – when really the only reason we are here is in the effort of procreation, to perpetuate our species, and we will never know why.

And suddenly, this begins to sound like an existentialist essay, here to inform you that you’ve left me believing that there is nothing beyond and there is no reason. However, my newly formed and more enlightened belief is that if we perceive there to be a reason, there is. If we do not, there is not. Of course, this works on an individual basis as opposed to a collective basis. That is our reality, and unfortunately, our perception of events is mostly involuntary, and so that reality cannot be changed, not consciously anyway. Perhaps unconsciously, as our consciousnesses expand, allowing us to perceive more, allowing our perception to grow and adapt, our ideas, our reality, can change. Hence, we define our own reality, but this is an inadvertent process. It is and is not defined by ourselves. We have all the power and none at all. As I said, to me, humanity is paradoxical.

My answer to the second question which arose, if you’re still reading (there is a point to this) is yes and no. Another paradox. It seems almost sweeter to imagine that I am the only consciousness that is, for the hurt which is impacted upon me by others is not done consciously. In fact, people are merely reflections of my own consciousness, designed to keep my reality from being inhibited by the bitter pang of loneliness, and to guide me through my ideas – as your work has done. And that is comforting in a sense. Hurt is less when it is inflicted upon yourself by yourself (or in this case, by an extension of self) and the weight of responsibility is nearly non-existent, as there is no one to owe responsibility to. But then, that means that company is artificial, and if this is realised, then reality is lonely. I do not want for a lonely existence. Both have their “pros” as such and both have their “cons” and I consider myself both illuminated and disillusioned in my belief in the former of the options.

Now, onto Paper Towns – it is beautifully and realistically written, albeit being a wholly unrealistic storyline. That’s the beauty of it. Margo raises some excellent questions on the ideas we project of ourselves and how they define the reality as perceived by collective consciousnesses. We project different ideas of ourselves dependent on who we find ourselves with. My mum’s Chloe Elizabeth Hazlewood is not my best friend’s Chloe Elizabeth Hazlewood, as Quentin Jacobsen’s Margo Roth Spiegelman is not Lacey Pemberton’s Margo Roth Spiegelman. Are people more complex or more simple than they project themselves to be? Perhaps they’re both. Perhaps we both overestimate and underestimate, and we still struggle to find a balance because we are not privvy to their innermost thoughts. As is cleverly and honestly stated by yourself in this novel, through the voice of Quentin; “But as for me: I must ask the wounded man where he is hurt, because I cannot become the wounded man. The only wounded man I can be is me.” – that realisation was an excellent pivotal point for his character. One I simply had to dissect on my own terms. We are self-absorbed creatures, and sometimes the only way to truly know a person is to ask what the truth is. This is no certain practice: people lie. However, it is the closest we will achieve to really knowing, isn’t it?

And the last question, I fear to answer. As you see, my answers are indeterminate to the previous questions: I’m just not sure. What if the world were everything? What if reality enveloped everything? Collectively, and I am afraid to say as such, it must. But that is for you to perceive. Do you believe in a collective consciousness, or a sole consciousness? Are you the idea you project? Are we just animals who allocate ourselves roles in a technologically advanced world to experience a sense of superiority? Is there more? Is there less?

You see, John Green, you’ve had my head running round in circles, thinking on the metaphysical and philosophical – I am perfectly qualified for Metaphysical I Spy as you can see.

Following that, I do have some rather niggling basic questions. Predominantly:

- What became of Margo Roth Spiegelman after Quentin left her?
- Is Quentin ever destined to see her again?
- Did they maintain contact?
- What of Myrna Mountweasel? I do not see Margo as being the type to just leave her, and I do not see her parents as being the types to invest much time in her.
- Did Lacey’s relationship with Ben last?
- How did the parents react when Ben, Radar, Lacey and Q got home?

I thank you, firstly for your writing, and secondly in the case that you ever read this.

Yours-With-4AM-Thoughts-And-Much-Admiration,
Chloe Elizabeth Hazlewood

Dear John.G,

Hello my name is Sofia Kupfer, i’m from Argentina, Bs.As. I have two books from you, Will Grayson and the Fault in our stars. I’m going to read all your books.

Will Grayson had interested me a lot. I imagened every scene or chapter of the book. In my opinion you should make the movie of Will.I, it would be grate for the readers of all your books or the ones that read the book Will.G.
It would be a great idea to make a movie about the life of Will.Grayson, Tiny.C ,Jane.T, etc.
Its very romantic , dramatically and funny.
The movie of “Paper towns” I haven’t seen it yet but I will see it as soon as I can, although I haven’t read the book yet, but I also going to do it .
I’m fan of your books,the movies based in your books, and a fan of you, you are incredible and you have an imagination that is very fantastic and funny.
I have two questions:
1.How do you make a book such big and interesting?
2.Why The Fault in our stars and “Looking for Alaska”are about girls that had cancer?
If you make the movie Will.G I will like you to put that you take this idea from me, only if you accept that
With all my respect,
Sofia.K

Hello John!
I believe there is an extremely low chance that you will ever see this, but at least there is a chance if I try.
You are a person who has managed to make me see certain things in life from a different perspective. I value that.
I like to keep individuals such as yourself as close to me as possible.
I would like to talk to you about one of those individuals… I am asking for your help. There’s this boy… he has a unique view on life. Sometimes he knows he’s doing something wrong, but he does it anyways, because he knows he’ll never get that moment back.
“What would you do if this was the last day of your life?” This is his most frequently asked question… but I feel like he forgot about the fact that there is a chance that this isn’t his last day… or my last day. He forgets about the fact that the choices he makes may cause certain consequences in the future.
Most of his thoughts got drowned in alcohol and lost in smoke… I just want to show him he doesn’t need chemicals to have a good time… he reminds me of Gus sometimes, the fear of oblivion… the stubbornness… but also the kind heart and other positive features.
I want to take him on a trip… he already ran away from home to Amsterdam twice. I want to show him you can have fun and get that same adrenaline rush without hurting the people around him.
Do you have any ideas where I could take him? …please help me plan our trip? I was supposed to go with him to Amsterdam, but I focused on passing in school instead. I like fun and freedom… but only as long as I’m not hurting my loved ones.

Please please please help me.
I want to show him the beauty of the world and give him that same adrenaline rush he always seeks… he’s not happy anymore if he doesn’t have all the chemicals inside of him.

Please… from the bottom of my heart.

-Nina

Dear John,
I hope you’re even reading this.
I’m writing you again because I feel like I haven’t said all I have to say to you yet.
So far, I didn’t even say much.
I finished paper towns just a few days ago and I couldn’t help myself from starting it all over again. I cant stop thinking about it and every day I think about it I find more to think of and more to identify with.
See dear John, I chose to focus on paper towns not because I don’t love tfios. Not at all! Actually I loved tfios so much that I took it with me where ever I go for days!
But that wasn’t the point. The point is that paper towns was really something for me.
I keep thinking and thinking and I just cant describe how much I love it!
Its so clever and unique. I’m telling you John, I find a piece of myself in it.
Margo is just like all those powerful girls I lookup too only better! She’s smart and she don’t mind taking a risk even when she’s afraid. She deal with it. She’s strong.
And Quentin and his friends is another thing you take from the book to yourself.
They go on this awesome journey together and do crazy things but they do theme together on there senior year. This is friendship and love and this is an adventure to me.
I keep thinking and as one that always have words I cant explain myself to you. I’m speechless. I have no words.
All though I do have one question .
I mean I know that the book is more then just a growing up story. Its more. It is growing up and friendships and it’s a novel and it’s a self finding book.
This is what its all about. All those things together.
So why did you let people change the story and make it different in the movie. I know its not that different but I think that people are missing the point. The point is a bit unclear because the way I figure it there is no point. That is one of the most lovely things about this book. You can see it as so many different things and learn from it so much and in the movie its not like this. In the movie they give you the point. But im not writing this to be annoying cause I’m sure it is. I’m writing it just to strengthen my point. To many points ha? My point at the end is that I admire you and I’m thanking you for helping me in my growing up and self discovering.
My last question is if the way you figure it everyone gets a miracle, why cant I see it? when will I get it?
Anyways if you won’t mind to reply my long comment, it would be amazing!

Love,
Lia.

Hi Mr. Green. My name is Conor Bennett. I am 13 years old and am the fourth son in my family. I adore your style of writing personally and I believe that you devote your intelligence and your creativity into your novels (even though I have only read three and a half…).

Here are some of my personal points about your books. I hope you appreciate them.

-I found ‘The Fault In Our Stars’ to be one of the most exceptional books of my reading experience.
- ‘Paper Towns’ was my favourite of your novilisations and I am just waiting patiently (by patiently I mean bouncing around and screaming ‘OH MY GOD!!! PAPER TOWNS!!!’) for the films release in Ireland.
- ‘An Abundance Of Katherines’ was just a strike of genius-ness.
-I haven’t yet had the privilege to read ‘Looking For Alaska’, ‘Let It Snow’ or ‘Will Grayson, Will Grayson’. I am also waiting ‘patiently’ for those to magically appear in my local library or my local book stores.

Thank you very much for taking the time to read my notice for you. I am very proud to say that you are my favourite author of all time.

Thank you for your hard work going into novels and films.

I wish you luck in all your future endevours.

Sincerely, your fan, Conor Bennett.

Renee Herring July 29, 2015 at 2:13 pm

Dear John Green,

I’ve read most of your books, but I’m currently reading Let it Snow by you, Maureen Johnson, and Lauren Myracle. I love it so far! Did you have to compromise with each other or did you guys say you guys are going to build off of the first story? Personally my favorite book by you is definitely The Fault in Our Stars. I think most books should be written by multiple people such as you guys are. I am just wondering, why would you guys not continue the first story? I understand that you’re just showing different perspectives of the other characters. I hope you keep writing more awesome books. Do you ever just get enervated by writing or are you more of a “I’m in the zone” type of writer? Another question I have is how do you come with these unique books? Who was your favorite author when you were a kid? When you were a kid, did you have a passion for writing stories? How do you enhance your characters to make them different in each way? One day I hope to meet you.

Sincerely,
Renee Herring

P.S. Do you procrastinate?

loes segers July 29, 2015 at 6:24 pm

hy jhon, i don’t know if your gonna reed this. But i hope so.

i red the Fault in ou stars and it was a pleasure to have it in my hands reading it.
The book kind of inspierd me to go further with my life, instead of getting backward and staying behind.

See a good friend of me died a year ago, of cancer. And i coulden’t let go. It was so hard to forget him, and the memories we shared toghetether where so deep to let go. “Altrought i know it is a fiction story, but it feels real.”
but after i finished the book “in one and a half day” i kind of learnd how to let go of him. That when “he” isn’t there annymore he’s not comming back from a trip or something he’s just here on top of us.
The story isn’t real, but the feelings are.
I stil can remember his lovley smile, as Hazel would remember Augustus’s amaizing lovley voice.

But i wanna say thank you, that such a good writer knows what he’s writing and thinking about, even if it has some tugh times.

i gave the fault in our stars to my aunt first. When she was done reading it, i red it. when Gus had the inccident with the capsule i just cried in the car, on holiday with a strange driver and my nieces. He was curius about the book, so when i ended it i gave it to him. And maybe he’s now reading your amaizing story. And maybe he givs it to his kids when he’s done.

Somethimes i trie to write something about what is mis and what i wan’t. but it doesn’t work, i always end up in the middle of a story that’s so boring. That i’m afraid i’m not gonna be a writer and be a manager of a restaurant.

But reading makes me happy, and paper town iw amaizing. Somethimes i wish i could have a life like him.

Gosh your so good in writing!

Dear John,
I would write a letter but I cannot afford stamps, however I do enjoy sending them when I can because everyone loves receiving letters. They are much more meaningful than an email, (or a comment on a website… sorry.) and they just make someone’s day a whole lot better. This is going to be long, sorry. I hope your reading this as well :D and will maybe reply. This isn’t snail mail!

(JUST GET TO THE POINT!)

Well, you can read ahead if you want to, but I’m going to take my time.

I am a young, and I do mean young writer, and I am currently working on a novel. I would give you more info if you contact me personally, but I do not want to share the details of my story online, in fear of someone stealing it. I was hoping you could give me some advice on writing, and/or contribute. Contributing would include helping create the dynamics of the novel. I have already written a short epilogue, now I am creating the characters, and the events that will take place in the story. I was hoping you could help me make my characters more round, and expand my story line. You don’t have to of course.

I want to turn this novel into a movie, I already have the perfect picture of how it would look, and who would play parts. (Also if your interested in a appearance, I have a great part available.) How did you get your book turned into a movie? I have no idea how I could possibly make it, the light at the end of my tunnel is very dull, and fading by the second.

How did you do it?

Well Thank You for reading this, I really appreciate it, and I hope you respond :D

John,
I know the chances of you reading this are 1 in a million, and the chances of you answering me are even farther away… But I got to try because by this point, I’ve reached helplessness.
Where did you get your Holden Caulfield’s hunting hat?!
I guess I’ve got to say that I’m Mexican (and living in Mexico) so I might not go to some undergroung hat-shop in Indianapolis (if that sort of thing is ‘a thing’) but well, there’s online shopping, so…
By the way, do you think that if I buy a hunting hat on Ebay I could get lice?
Love you, thks!
Paulina

Creo en ella y creo que puede ser exitosa, pero llevo meses intentando y ninguna agencia literaria me ha dado la oportunidad por la gran demanda de obras que tienen. Por favor ayude a una futura colega. No cierre su corazon hacia mi. deme una oporunidad. colaboreme. Por favor.

Hello John,
I doubt you’ll ever read this, but I’m going to write this note or letter or whatever this is anyway. I recently finished The Fault in Our Stars, and well, let’s just say that you made me cry and laugh. It really made me think about life and death and well people who have cancer. Which is what you probably wanted to come across to readers. I liked it because it was true to life. It had that way of being interesting, while being irrelevant at the same time. I liked the comedy and how blunt Hazel was about things. I thought you did a great job doing it from a girl’s point of view, since your a thirty or forty or something year old man. I hated this book because it was so depressing! I know your a very emotional writer, but… well I about cried. I don’t like doing that (crying), especially when your sitting at the supper table with cousins, reading the part when Augustus dies. I didn’t really get the end, when Augustus hoped Hazel liked her choices, and he liked his. I dunno, I feel like deleting this question because it probably sounds stupid, but I’m too lazy to do it. Plus my mouse isn’t working very well and I’m afraid of what will happen if I scroll anymore. That’s beside the point, though, you probably don’t really care that my mouse (as in the computer mouse, just clarifying, not that I think your stupid or anything.) isn’t working. Anyway, continuing on. I decided to write to you to tell you that, Paper Towns better not be near as depressing in the end, because I’m off to read that next. I’m really behind the times, I know.
Thank’s, if you ever read this John Green,
Good bye,
P.S. I only like the ending, because it’s ironic,
