Hello John Green,
I am currently watching the fault in our stars with my friends and We have all read the book. However we seem to disagree on something about the movie and we were hoping that you may be able to clear it up for us. So my question for you John Green.. The emails that Augustus and Hazel received were they written by Peter van houtan himself or his assistant? It would be lovely if you could answer this question for me.

Sincerely yours, a long time fan Afruz Sharifi

Dear Mr John Green,
I would like to apologize for my (bad) english. I’m a french girl.
My name is not really Ella (as you can see in my email adress), but I prefer that you call me like this. (I’m not sur that you’re going to answer me).
This morning of August 31, 2014, I started to read your novel The Fault in Our Stars (after seeing the movie, I confess).
I now (as you said at the beginning of the book) that it’s a fictitious story. But, from all my heart, I would tell you : thank you.
Thank you.

I am know 17 years old. I fell in love for the first time three years ago. He didn’t have any cancer, but he was sick. He is dead two years ago.
Thanks to you, thanks to your words, I could live again our moments. I understood a lot of things.
To be really selfish, I would say that you (almost) have written my, and his, story.
I’m sorry, I don’t write very well.
You called your hero Augustus Waters. A.W
The boy I met called William, and his brother liked to call him Angel. W.A
Thank you.

I can’t express better myself than with your own words « I felt that losing the person with whom I shared my memories, I had lost the memories themselves ».
Sir, you made be born again my memories.
Thank you.

I needed to tell you this, thank you for your attention.
I look forward to hearingf from you soon.
Ella,
(once again: thank you)

Dear John Green,
This may kind of seem like a copy of your book but I can assure to you that it is not.
Reading the book “The Fault in Our Stars” really made think about how nothing happens to Hazel in the end. No one knows what truly happened to Hazel, if she dies or if she is alive. So I was wondering if there is any way for me to find out. Is there going to be a second book that’s all about Hazel Grace? I would sure hope there is something of the sort.
This may seem crazy but I would truly love to know about Hazel.

Hope that you can get back to this!
Sincerely, Remi

Dear Remi,
I do not believe there will be a squeal to The Fault in our Stars, because, like in the movie and book, it had the ordeal with Peter Van Hutoen and how he had no answer to what happened to the characters in his book, and the book and movie ended with only one word. I think you were supposed to learn that the future is unwritten and that there is nothing we can do to change it. That’s the way it is. It also teaches us that we do die in the middle of life. In the middle of a sentence if you will. :)

Dear Mr. John Green,
Your book, “The Fault in Our Stars” is the best novel I have ever read in the in all the years of my small natural life. My best friend Phalyn Lumstrum showed me this amazing “sweet torture of reading The Fault in Our Stars” little over three weeks ago. Ever since that day I have became obsessed with the world of Augustus Waters and Hazel Grace Lancaster. Though Phalyn, and I have both heard horrible rumors that you will “not write anything worth publishing”. Although I am most likely overstepping bonds, but you sir could write anything and make it amazing and much like Hazel Grace Lancaster ” Frankly I would read your grocery lists”, because i have loved reading from a very small age, and never in my life have I found anything as amazing as your book. You have succeeded in bring both the horrible truth about teenagers with cancer, and the horrible truth about everyday teenagers, and their problem, and made all of this touch your heart so much you just have to cry. Much like Phalyn and I did after reading your book, and watching the movie. I do have a question that probably not all that important to the book, What did happen to the characters in ‘An
Imperial Affliction’? The book ended without telling us if Hazel Grace ever found her answers even if it was just though Augustus’s Sequel(eulogy). Though your book is filled with many thing I would love to know, like ‘What happens to Hazel Grace?’ Or ‘Does Issac ever get his robotic eyes?’ the questions of ‘ An Imperial Affliction’ made me wonder the most. This is because the main part of the book is them searching for answers of such book from Peter Van Houten.

Thank you very much for taking your time to read my questions, though not as amazing as yours ‘have hunted’ me for days.

Yours Most Sincerely
LeAnn Rose Fuller. Age 16, Colton, Ca.

Hi, I’m currently a senior in high school, and I am currently thinking about using Looking For Alaska as my term paper topic, focusing on the “Labyrinth of Suffering”. If you have some time, I was wondering if you could answer some questions for me and become a source for my paper.

Thank you, Ronnie

Dear Mr.Green,
Thank you for writing such a wonderful book. I, too, am a writer and I would like to be just like you one day. Thank you for being my inspiration. I admired your book so much that I wonder, where did you get your inspiration, and is there any hope that I get as much?
I hope all finds you well.
Regards,

I know that you may not read this but if you took the time to I can’t even express in words how much it would mean to me. The first time I read the fault in our stars I fell in love at the first chapter. I mourned Augustus’s death as if I knew him in real life. That book is one of the best things that have ever happened to me too though. I made a best friend because we both loved your book. Ever since then I have read every single one of your books and started writing my own. And I have always wanted to be one of two things, writer or actor. I have started writing a book because I was inspired by you. Thank you, you are my hero. Please check out my email.

Dear Mr. John Green,

Sorry for my bad English. I’m a french girl.
Everybody talk about The Fault In Our Stars. It´s a great book and i love it. Really. But, I write for Looking For Alaska. I recently faced the suicide of a loved one, and your book has helped me enormously in the face of guilt. So, I wanted to thank you, I admire you, never stop writing. You have a gift. Good luck. Thank you so much.

Yours most sincerely.

A dear french fan and admirer.

I don’t know how to start this but okay. God I’m even awkward on the internet. Me and my lovely friend Katelyn heard that possibly a movie for “Looking for Alaska” is going to be made. We always have a debate about who will be in the movie and what actor would fit the part perfectly. I’m not going to ask who you think should fit the part or who you think the person would be for miles (but that would be wonderful). I am going to tell you to consider watching the movie “Keith” and watch the main male role. One of my favorite movies and favorite actor (I wish he could get back into acting he did so good). I hope you reply to this because I want to settle this disagreement between me and my deer friend. Maybe you don’t do the casting or whatever but your opinion counts and this may be silly but this is important! Oh and I love your books please continue writing but I do wish TFIOS went more by the book.

Dear Mr. John Green,

The chances of you reading this are slim-to-none, but it is worth a shot! I am a huge fan of your work! Expecialy “the Fault in Our Stars.” I just finished the movie for the third time, (which by the way is the best adaptation of a novel, ever!) And I have a few questions; what happens to Hazle Grace after Gus dies? Does she eventually die from cancer? Does she ever find love again, or was that little infinity with Gus enough to satisfy her for the rest of her life? Thank you so much for writing such amazing pieces of literature!

Yours truly,
Alexis

Dear Sir,

I’ve read The Fault in Our Stars and Looking For Alaska, and i’m crazy for those two books. The Fault In our Stars made me cry rivers and oceans. I know killing Gus was important to the book- somehow. But still, i’m depressed about that. One thing I really want to know about Looking For Alaska- i’m sure many people have asked you this- but how and why does Alaska die? I know she goes to her mother’s grave because she had missed her death anniversary, but she had also seen the police car and the lights- why did she head for the car? Curious. I’m a big fan of yours. Thanks for such wonderful books.

Yours sincerely,
Vani.

It had just been that. The work of fiction which had once again brought tears and emotions bottling up out of me as if a shaken soda. How can an author have that effect on a reader ? Creating this entire story in our minds that each one of us are able to see from our own perspective.
& in my perspective I cry. I cry every time I get to the ending of this book and the only thing I can seem to wonder after is why that is… Maybe its this idea of true love that was presented to me, an idea of endless love.

Looking around our generation that’s about as hard to find as a pot of gold. What is it about love that can change a person ? Make them feel like; like they are now incomplete. There you were one day, living your life completely fine, and then all of the sudden this one person comes a long and suddenly you feel empty when they are not around.

What is it in us that truly feels that emotion ? Is it the memories we make ? The conversations we’ve had ? The places we’ve been to ? The connections we’ve shared ? I don’t know to be honest with you. Maybe its just one of those things. Or maybe its all of them at once. But all I know for sure, is that I don’t think I will ever want to love again, until someone can learn to love me as much as Augustus Waters love Hazel Grace.

I think we all deserve that love. All those of us who feel love inside us deserve to find one person on this overly populated planet to understand us the way we have always wanted to be understood.

And so for those reasons Mr. John Green I would have to disagree with you on the statement you had made in your authors note.

“Neither novels nor their readers benefit from attempts to divine whether any facts hide inside a story”
That is completely un-true. You of all people Mr.Green I would have hoped to have agreed. Just think of Hazel and Augustus. There love would have never been as strong as it is if it wasn’t for there “attempts” to find these facts that were hidden in “ An Imperial Affliction”.
Even though in the end when they realized there were no “facts” to find about the book itself, they found out other facts instead. For example facts about Peter Van Houton and how he’s a raging arrogant alcoholic. Which keep in mind, he was the reason Hazel and Augustus ever even came to Amsterdam in the first place. Putting them together for 3 days where they found the love in each other. With each memory made on this journey played an important part to there existence.

-Hazel was always going to outlive Augustus. Just as Augustus was always going to leave before Hazel. My point is, each would have went there ways dying or living. BUT if it was not for there desire for this quest to find out these facts from the book. Both would have just received there faiths with out ever falling in love with those 3 days in Amsterdam. Just as Peter Van Houtens daughter, finally got her true story heard while Hazel and Augustus were on there quest. Both parties needed each other with out even realizing the effects they would hold on each other in the long run.

There for yes. Yes readers and novels both benefit from attempts to divine whether facts lye with in a story.

Well…There you go Mr.Green. Even though I can see why you’d say a thing such as lust to define facts behind stories wouldn’t truly benefit either one because in the end death pays its dues either way. But it’s the way that death had come… which matters. In which here Hazel had learned to love Augustus the way he loved her and Peter Van Houten finally put his novel to peace with his true inspiration behind it. So of course both readers and novels benefit from ones desire to define facts.

I cannot believe I am even tempering with questioning the man of such power and words. But I just wanted to share some mind with you.

Love Always.
Bella Maria Gorsh
