Dear John Green

I LOVE the fault in our stars and ahhhhhh!!!!!!! I have so many questions TFIOS is like an imperial affliction and I don’t have cancer or anything so I can’t use a dying wish to go see you in Indiana like Hazel (I live in France). You have an amazing gift for writing (I hope your not a really sh**y person like Peter is!) but the ending is killing me! TFIOS made me laugh, cry and wonder I have SO many questions the will forever remain unanswered!

Dear Mr. John Green,
I really hope you see this.
I finally finished the fault in our stars.. I wanted to read it earlier but I just couldn’t… Here’s why,
Over the past few years my (fire department) family was trying to save the life of a fire mans son.vhe had some sort of cancer thing in his brain (I don’t remeber exactly what it was) it was slowly killing him in the first year but that. They remover it and was cancer free. In early 2013 his cancer appeared again. In the begging it was hopeful, but then in mid September it took a turn for the worst. Our school hosted a foot ball game for him (since he was a huge foot ball player) and every touch down my school made he got 1,000 dollars from the bank, but his cancer was so bad he was unable to attend. The coach for our high school team has a son who had a type of cancer (some sort of bone cancer I think) the coaches son is the coach of the rival team for that game. At the game they had the carrying of the flag where the football players did that like pro football thing, both teams hold one end while the national anthem is played, and all that stuff. About a month later he died. He died over MEA break (I live in minnesota and all school have that in a week during October). At his funeral the fire department lined up and made a “hall” for his casket to be carried through. The whole football team went to support the family AND a present player of the team (his brother). In the part of Agustus’s funeral made me remeber him. His mom gave you a hug and hugged so tight, just like Agustus’s mom. I got mad when I saw the eulogy thing about him, it didn’t say much I asked my mom “Why doesn’t it say much” her response was “Honey, he died at the age of 22 , there’s not much to say” I dint reply but thought of all these things it could’ve said, it never mentioned how strong he was through his battle, never mentioned his team and all that stuff, it only mentioned his Christian faith (he’s catholic so…) but the book showed me there’s more than just battling cancer, it’s what you do when you go through it, and he did a lot, besides fight it.
I guess what I’m trying to say is that, your book was right about a person battling through cancers dying days. That’s exactly how it was, except only a little longer.
And it guess I’m also trying to say is that your book is actually almost helping me through his death even though I never knew him much, even though you don’t know a person who died that well it still hits you hard.
So this LOOOONG letter/reply/comment thing is a thank you.
So,
Thank You,
Emma Thompson.

Dear John Green,

I love The Fault In Our Stars SO much!! But the ending ahhhhhh!!!!!!!!!! I have so many questions and I don’t have cancer or anything so I can’t use my dying wish to visit you like Hazel (I live in France). I now realize what finishing An Imperial Affliction must have been like for Hazel and Augustus! It is killing me!!!!!!!!! Is there any way my questions can get answered?
Hope you don’t get cancer or anything,

Dear John Green,

Thank you.

I’ve read two of your books (The Fault In Our Stars, Paper Towns) and I feel as if my heart needs to take a break before I can handle another one. There’s something about your writing that leaves me profoundly effected. You can ramble on for two straight pages about something so inappropriate that I blush just reading it, and then you flip the switch and hit me with something so deep that I have to pause, catch my breath, and reevaluate everything I thought I knew.

TFIOS broke my heart. Many say–and are angered–that you killed Augustus. But I do not agree. You simply let him be, let his life play out as it would in reality. Had Augustus lived, I would’ve known I was only reading a book. But he died. And I grieved with Hazel. I felt her pain, raw and real. I, too, have lost someone to cancer, and though a sugarcoated novel would’ve been easier to read, it wouldn’t have been right. In reading TFIOS, I mourned Miles all over again. It was painful, like reopening a wound that had just healed, and yet it was necessary. TFIOS reminded me how short life is. But it also reminded me that, no matter how short a person’s life may be, they always have enough time to make their life matter.

Paper Towns did something entirely different for me. I was practically giddy the entire time I read it because it was one of the first books I’ve read from this century that was so completely brilliant. The mystery, the structure, the story, the characters, the lesson. Brilliant. In Q’s search to find Margo–the real Margo–something surprising happened. I began the book thinking I was Q. And then I started to realize I was Margo. I won’t go into detail, but your book taught me the danger of not allowing people to know the real me. Paper Towns was my catalyst .

Thank you for the power of your words, John Green.

Hi, My name is Amanda I’m 13 I’ve read his two books, The Book Thief and The Guilt Of Stars is.
I enjoyed the two I was inspired in Blame It Of Stars More .. had my doubts, Since the end of the book shows the letter that Augustus Waters made ​​about Hazel Grace for Peter Van Houten .. More because he (Augustus Waters ) made ​​the letter soon to Peter? Why would a kid every fall for a unknown girl? What happens after that Hazel Grace reads the letter? Hazel Grace Die?
Sorry my questions outside these hours, more like I understand the book with these questions ..? I just wanted to know that if Mr. could answer me I would be very grateful .. I’m a big fan of yours and of your performance and charisma .. I know Mr. will not completely answer .. More like Hazel Grace have my doubts. .

Sincerely Your Fan,

Hi!
I would just like to personally say how big of a fan I am of your writing. I think i could easily be classified as a book work ( among other things ) but before i read The Fault in our Stars, reading had much less relevance to me. But after I read it, I really realized how much of an impact books can have ( positive impacts, of course. ) I’ve now begun reading, and writing much more. Your writing also helped me understand the difference between reading, and understanding a book.
Thanks to you, I now do not only read, but I also understand what I’m reading,
Wholeheartedly Yours,
Maya.

Hi John Green!
Like Hazel did to Peter after he wrote An Imperial Affliction was ask for the end of the book. I would like to do this too. What does happen to Hazel at the end? Does she get her epilogue? Does Issac get robot eyes (I know far fetched but..) ? Does Hazel die? Does she keep going to support group? If you would not like to answer these that is okay, maybe they will be answered in the film…. AAH! SO EXCITED!

esto se parecerá a las preguntas de Hazel hacia el libro un dolor imperial pero quedo con la duda ¿que pasa con ella? muere, se recupera de su cáncer milagrosamente o sigue viva y visitando a Isaac

Dear Mr John Green

I have only just started to read your books and I am already addicted to them. I started with the fault of our stars first because there was a movie coming out and then I went onto reading your other books. Some people may think I’m weird but I like how you don’t finish your books it allows me to think about them for a while and the decide weather or not to make my own ending or to just leave it at yours and let the mystery continue.
I have also fallen in love with your quotes and have many saved on my phone.
Mr Green, you have become one of my favourite people, I love reading your books and in some I feel connected to your stories, I will sit for hours reading them with either tears in my eyes, laughing along with the characters, and even sometimes it feels like I’m unable to move my eyes from the book. I know you must have a lot of fan mail so I don’t know if you will ever read this but thank you.

Mr. Green,
I do realize that there are quite possibly millions of people who leave you comments and write letters and perhaps stalk you, but I felt the need to thank you for the wonderful work that is The Fault in Our Stars. I have grown quite annoyed by all of the ridiculous love stories circulating that are utterly implausible, so thank you for writing something that feels real. Something that is without exception the best “love story” I have ever read. This book, I cannot begin to say how I was effected by this book. I was happy for Hazel when she went to Amsterdam, I hated when Gus died, I cried for him, I felt actual pain, and my heart broke when I read Gus’s letter to Van Houten.

That is not to say that The Fault in Our Stars is the only book that I love. Will Grayson, Will Grayson is amazing as well, and while I have not read your other books, I plan to just as soon as I can get them from the library (folks in Maryland REALLY must enjoy your books. They all have at least 100 requests)

Both of these books hold a place on my list of favorites, and both have made me laugh, cry, and fall in love with the characters. Thank you for gracing us with the stories in your head. They are magnificent.

Bayleigh

P.S. Will there ever be another book about Hazel? I assume she dies eventually, but will you tell any more of her story? Or Issac’s?

Teagan K April 16, 2014 at 11:53 pm

Bayleigh,
Peter was wrong when he said that people in books are Fictional, and once that book ends the story goes on in the writers head and also in the readers head (if they can imagine up the rest of the story). There are only infinities in this world, no endings, just small infinities and big infinities but theres no end. Gus was not a dream guy, and he thought did not fulfill his dream of not toughing others, but yet again another person from TFIOS was wrong because even after i read TFIOS the second time I still cried for the worlds loss. Augustus was a piece of a pie and the would is the full pie, a world with out Augustus is no full.

I haven’t read your other books yet but I will pick up a copy of Will Grayson, Will Grayson as soon as I can (It’s kinda hard to do with only ONE Barnes & Noble on the Island).

I heard you were going on a tour and I really want you to come to Honolulu, Hawaii. My friends are also huge fans and it would be amazing to speak to the man who inspired a generation in some many ways. Plus, Hawaii is a great vacation spot so not only do you get to meet a bunch of your fans, you also get to see our beautiful island.

Dear John,

Thank you for your amazing book and crazy and exact insight into teenager-hood in TFIOS, Paper Towns, Looking for Alaska, and An Abundance of Katherines (my favorite :). You give me and so many other kids hope that there is a reality to success and the crap the teachers always shoved down our throats about following our dreams and never giving up is actually true! Not only in your writing career, but you have also given so much to help aid others less privileged and growing the minds of all of your Vlogbrothers viewers and readers! When ever I think that I am the only dorky nerd out there that still loves Star Wars and has read the Harry Potter books 17 times each I remember you and Hank and all the insane/hilarious things you do and how you accept everyone without condition. I love you guys! DFTBA!!!

This will probably get lost in the in going mail (just like in TFIOS for Hazel) but TFIOS changed my life and how i view death, and almost any thing. All of the amazing quotes that were famous before you put them in your book touched me when I read it and all of the quotes that you made famous will stick with me for ever.
I’m currently on page 236 in your book Paper Towns and was reading it in the car after my soccer practice (my mom got annoyed because she was working and I was laughing). My friends are also tiered of me talking about it an TFIOS ALL the time!
I love you and am trying to get ALL of my friends to read Paper Towns and TFIOS! Am going to read all of your books and hope that TFIOS can tough many more peoples heart like it touched mine.
Sincerely,

Ps. if you read this please email me back, let’s hope your not like Peter Van Houten. Also I read TFIOS twice and once i finish Paper Towns I’m going to read it again.

I am fourteen years old and my name is sharnhi. The Fault In Our Stars is the most amazing book that I have ever read. I haven’t read your other books or watched the movie, but it is at the top of my todo list. TFIOS is brilliant. I laughed, I felt the love of Hazel and Augustus, and I cried when he died. Now, like Hazel and Gus, I have some questions. What happens to Hazel? Does she survive, or does her cancer get her, and she gets buried next to Gus? Is An Inperial

Oops.

Is A Imperial Affliction real? Also, what happens to Gus and Hazels parents, and what happens to Isacc? I know that this may not get answered, but I sincerely hope it does.
My brother had Lueikemia, so I understood the struggles in the story. I also hope to be in love someday like Hazel and Gus.
So, John Green, you have made me extremely happy with TFIOS, and I hope you reply via email

Hello Mr. Green,

I have actually been planning to write you an extensive letter, but just now realized that you probably do not want copious amounts of writing by a teenage girl about how Alaska has changed her life.

Despite my recent epiphany ensuring you otherwise, I will still tell you that Alaska Young has saved me and my sanity. As a victim of previous bullying that has lasted for the past nine years of my adolescent life, I had reverted into an introvert, not taking any chances and not maintaining any sense of self-pride. However, I read Looking for Alaska and I cannot express in words my gratitude and appreciation.

So, sir, I wanted to tell you that I have tried emulating her (her referring to Alaska) in action and spirit. I have transformed from my scared, introverted self back into my original ENFP self – I believe Alaska to be a fellow ENFP.

This summer, I do plan on filming a character study of Alaska Young, including some monologues I write for her, however I do not even approach your literary genius. My fairy godmother – ignore my absurdity, please – is sister to Jim Rash, who is a figure in comedic Hollywood. But I owe this project to her, and to your storytelling and portrayal of adolescence.

Mr. Green, I do hope you will read this, but if you do not, you save me an embarrassment.

Thank you for changing my life,
Caroline L.

P.S. Do not be frightened that I previously contacted Indian Springs School about transferring over for the next academic school year, my senior year. They do not offer IB classes for my eligibility of the diploma to role over into. (Ending a sentence in a preposition was a poor choice.)

P.P.S. I am able to travel anywhere in the world to talk to you, even a cousin thrice removed. My goal is to be Alaska, to convey her and her phenomenal spirit to everyone in hopes that she can save them as she saved me.

P.P.P.S. (So sorry.) Cat’s Cradle and The General and His Labyrinth are fantastic books.

2. Would you consider making another book about Hazel.

Hi John,

Curious if you or Hank can do a video on ‘investing for dummies’ or ‘investing for 30-somethings who should already know a shit ton more about investing by this point in their career’? I know there are tons of tutorials out there, but really, you guys are the best at explaining complex topics like healthcare, mutual funds, etf’s, stocks vs bonds, and the complexities of things like the worthlessness of a penny! Sounds fun, right? Would love to see a video on that topic, soon…before I”m old land broke. Thanks so much for all you guys do to educate the masses in a hilarious yet informative way!

Jeco The Silly Existence April 17, 2014 at 1:19 pm

Hi
I just finished reading your famous book.In fact, I haven’t cried as much as everyone else. But your book, is much more than a touching tragic sad romantic teen novel (that anyone with some imagination could have written one). I felt a great connection with Hazel Grace that I reflected on myself.I am much luckier than her, I do not suffer serious disease (though I have a dad who has recovered from cancer), but though years of thinking-big-from-meaningless-things, I know that life will end meaningless one day. As Hazel, I am said to be strong and tough. But I know it is not great-people-thing that others think, that is after extreme desperation you accept the worst thing that could happen on you and you don’t care any longer, which others describe as OPTIMISM. But no matter how stone-shielded I am, I am totally weak n brittle in central, holding something small in others’ eyes but big to me as life straw, like Hazel desperately wants to know the ending of AIA.
Thank you for your beautiful book thay gives me a chance to see myself. Many books teach me new things (yours too), but you lead me to look at myself.
Jeco :)

Hi ,

I think I’ve read tfios over a million times and every time I always laugh and cry along with the characters . You just have a way of bringing the words on the pages to life . I feel as if I can relate to Hazel , not by disease but with the way she feels about life ,after all aren’t we all just a side effect of dying ? Books have been my life over the past few hard years and tfios has stuck with me all the way. It kind of reminded me of my grandad who had died in 2007 from lung cancer. This book helps me to not just feel sympathy for him but empathy too. I also like the way that the book finishes like AIA and doesn’t explain what’s happening to Hazel next. I like to imagine Hazel beating cancer , visiting Gus’ grave every once and a while and maybe working in a library. I don’t know it’s your book , your ending . Thank you so much for writing tfios and becoming a greater deal of my life :)))))

Dear John Green,
I know that you have millions of people writing to you about how wonderful your writing is, and how everyone adores you, but please, take time to read this.
Everyone in school (Wales, GB) was going C R A Z Y over this book. I never really was intrigued until one girl came in and told me the basics of what it’s about.
I’ve always been one to write stories, and make up my own fictional characters, and I try to relate them to real life experiences.
When I got the book, I simply could not put it down. One thing that excited me about it, is that the main character is “Hazel Grace”, as my name is “Chloe Grace”, and I also have hazel eyes. What a coincidence ;-)
Also, my family has been brought down with news of cancer. My grandmother had breast cancer twice, and luckily beat it. But she lost my granddad to it, which was such a devastation to the family, as is anyone having cancer, and unfortunately, like Augustus, losing the battle.
You’ve encouraged me to write my own book, based on the devastation of illness, and also the impact it has on the people around them.
I want to thank you so much for opening my eyes to the fact that this is happening a lot. As I am a Christian, I will be praying for those people.

I am not expecting a reply back (but feel free;)), It would be an honour for you just to read it.

Dear Mr. Greene,

As an aspiring writer, it is in my nature to read critically claimed books and poems that involve a vast interest group, especially for YA given that I am a teenager. I do not wish to be one of those “I want to be like that fictional character” fan girls, but I have a legitiment question that deserves an answer. Did you leave out a page in the book? Does Hazel live long? Is the story of Anne similar to the story of Hazel? I am flabbergasted and breath-taken over the ending of this heart-touching book that left me with tears. Please message me back for I believe I will not sleep till I find out the ending of this novel. If you do not message back, I will, indeed, have a cow. (actually I’m vegan so I don’t know if that is a appropriate term to use)

John Green,
Well first of all, I should thank you for making such an outstanding book. You captured so many life events and put them in a language we, teenagers, could understand. I will forever be in your debt to this amazing work of art. Throughout your book, you were right about many things. I do not have the brain capacity to remember everything you were right about, that is why I will reread this wonderful book over and over again throughout the life of a young, misunderstood woman.
One of the main things that I will forever remember about you literary contribution to this horrifying, unjust world is this: You shall always fight the enemy within yourself until you die. This was very enlightening to me because well it was beautifully put in The Fault in Our Stars. You introduced me to whole new outlook to the world. Why should I keep trying to win when that part is already written in my life? The outcome is inevitable, I will loose. I will look forward to accepting this new profound answer.
I must say though, you left me in a daze on how you ended the book. What does Hazel become? Does she turn into any other cancer kid or does she concur oblivion? Does her life represent Anne? I need answers Sir. I welcome the unknown but fear the results.
Do please respond to a perpetual fan for I am a grenade and would like to decrease the number of casualties.

John Green,
Well first i just have to say i loved The Fault In Our Stars.It made me so happy but so sad at the same time and i for one am not afraid to admit i cried.That is one thing that’s surprising since i don’t cry when it come’s to books or movies.The fact is that your book showed me a whole new prospective on life.It changed me for the better and i know you’ll never read this but i just need to put it out there.One of my favorite lines is “Sometimes it seems the universe wants to be noticed.” I just really enjoyed that line.
Also your book taught me to never take my life for granted because unlike them im a healthy kid.I shouldn’t have to complain about my life since i for one have it better than most kids.What you wrote is true we do see sick people differently and that’s a shame.Why?Because there no different then we are.
Now i am a very curious person but i for one like not knowing what happens.I would be lying if i said i wasn’t curios because i am,but i know you’ll probably never read this so why ask.Right.But it does strike me to ask why end it like that why not give us some outlook on to what happens next.Although i do find it a brilliant way to end a book.It’s different and it leaves readers for more which i wish i could do.I would one day love to be as grate as you are in writing but i for one don’t believe that will happen.
This is getting to be quite long so i will stop here but before i go i just want you to know that this book really did change my life and i know most people say that but it’s true and im glad your a writer.I have very little hope you’ll read this but maybe you’ll prove me wrong.If you do read this till next time Mr.John Green.

You wont probably won’t read this because you have tons of fan mail. But i going to write it anyway in hope that you might. I am Russian girl 15 years old. And your book “The Fault In Our Stars” broke my heart, i couldn’t stop crying. But it was amazing. I loved the book so much that it took me 2 days to finish it. It’s magnificent. Your book is a big inspiration to me. I never been in love but, reading your book helped me understand that love can be different and hard. And your writing is amazing. Never stop writing!!! In the future i want to be just like you. Write books and let people enjoy. But i had few questions: a)Hazel dies? and there is no way she could be saved? b)What happens to Isaac? c)if Hazel dies do her parents stay together just like they promised? does her mom have any more kids? or adopts any? d)And IF Hazel dies… her and Augustus are in haven together? e)how did you come up with the idea of writing this novel? f)Is it someones story? or you just came up with it out of nowhere? I would love to receive an email from you answering my questions. It is a huge deal TO ME.
Thank you

Dear Mr. John Green,
I really hope you see this.
I finally finished the fault in our stars.. I wanted to read it earlier but I just couldn’t… Here’s why,
Over the past few years my (fire department) family was trying to save the life of a fire mans son.vhe had some sort of cancer thing in his brain (I don’t remeber exactly what it was) it was slowly killing him in the first year but that. They remover it and was cancer free. In early 2013 his cancer appeared again. In the begging it was hopeful, but then in mid September it took a turn for the worst. Our school hosted a foot ball game for him (since he was a huge foot ball player) and every touch down my school made he got 1,000 dollars from the bank, but his cancer was so bad he was unable to attend. The coach for our high school team has a son who had a type of cancer (some sort of bone cancer I think) the coaches son is the coach of the rival team for that game. At the game they had the carrying of the flag where the football players did that like pro football thing, both teams hold one end while the national anthem is played, and all that stuff. About a month later he died. He died over MEA break (I live in minnesota and all school have that in a week during October). At his funeral the fire department lined up and made a “hall” for his casket to be carried through. The whole football team went to support the family AND a present player of the team (his brother). In the part of Agustus’s funeral made me remeber him. His mom gave you a hug and hugged so tight, just like Agustus’s mom. I got mad when I saw the eulogy thing about him, it didn’t say much I asked my mom “Why doesn’t it say much” her response was “Honey, he died at the age of 22 , there’s not much to say” I dint reply but thought of all these things it could’ve said, it never mentioned how strong he was through his battle, never mentioned his team and all that stuff, it only mentioned his Christian faith (he’s catholic so…) but the book showed me there’s more than just battling cancer, it’s what you do when you go through it, and he did a lot, besides fight it.
I guess what I’m trying to say is that, your book was right about a person battling through cancers dying days. That’s exactly how it was, except only a little longer.
And it guess I’m also trying to say is that your book is actually almost helping me through his death even though I never knew him much, even though you don’t know a person who died that well it still hits you hard.
So this LOOOONG letter/reply/comment thing is a thank you.
So,
Thank You,
Emma Thompson.

Dearest John Green,
I know you probably don’t read ever single one of these because you are a very busy man. I can assure you at me being a 17 year old that has gone though hell these last few years because of cancer that your book The Fault in Our Stars was correct on every single little detail. I am not going to make this thank you so many pages long in the hopes for you to see this, but I wish to so you all my gratitude toward your writing and presence.

Yours Truly,
Tabitha Marie.
