1. Appreciation: I love you so much for writing because your books have literally consumed me in all (good) ways possible. I absolutely love TFIOS due to its raw honesty-there doesn’t always have to be a good/bad theme because life doesn’t work that way etc. I also love LFA because of the idea of love before actually getting to know the true someone. You are so honest in your books and that’s one I the many reasons why I admire you soo much! You don’t feel the need to sugar coat because life itself doesn’t sugar coat anything… You’re not condescending like many other authors out there.

2. You write about topics that in reality people don’t really talk about coz to be honest how many people actually want to talk about the idea of sudden/expected death. No one really likes talking about death but you open your readers minds and you make us realise that it’s not actually as bad as it seems as nothing actually lasts, not even the earth itself ;).

3. I don’t know how you do it but I always end up seeing myself in your characters. I absolutely love it as it makes me wonder what I’d do if I ever found myself in the situations they were in.

Conclusion: YOU ARE AN AMAZING WRITER!! KEEP WRITING, YOUR BOOKS MAKE ME HAPPY! I’LL WRITE YOU FAN MAIL, DONT BE LIKE VAN HOUTEN, PLEASE REPLY X

Hi, This is an identified error maybe?, but in The Fault in Our Stars on page 255 on line 14 it reads: ‘I was tugging at my arm but he wouldn’t let go.’ I was just wondering if the ‘I’ at the start of the sentence is meant to be a ‘he’ ??, I would appreciate it if you could reply as this won’t leave my head. I’m sure there are no errors but I’m one of those picky people!! Please don’t take this offensively!! Love your books they’re so inspiring!! Xx

I think you misunderstood the context of that sentence. Hazels father was grasping her arm, and she was trying to grab her own arm back from him. Earlier on page 255 line 1, line 7, and line 12 it mentions how her dad grabbed her arm like a 12 yr old child about to dart into a street, and then how he let go so he could connect her to the oxygen.

I love all of your books. I read TFIOS over and over again. I connect so much to Hazel. I really want to know what happens to her . I’m really pushy about this because, like Hazel, I want to know what happens even though there isn’t a sequel. Honestly, that is just eating me alive. You may bit see this, or the letter I sent, but I just wanted to say you did a very very job :)

John Green is an author with a style. When reading his books, you just get drawn in and you’ll never want to put them down without finishing them first. I haven’t only read The Fault in Our Stars, but ALL of them and they are just amazing. He’s 100% my favorite author by far :)

You gave me an infinity within numbered pages, for this I am forever grateful, thank you. You are funny in a nerdy way yet popular (yes among nerds but I could argue that they are the best people to be friends with) you are such a genuine person and you must be nearly fearless to express just how scared you are when your books come out. Those fears are completely unneeded by the way. I hope you’re ready to keep writing and vlogging because I’m always there to watch and read. I’ll end with a nerdy joke. :)
Well I was gonna tell a periodic table joke… but all the good ones argon

Dear John,
I must say that I highly enjoy your writing. I read The Fault in Our Stars a while ago, and I must say I deeply enjoyed it. Lately, I have been searching for more of your work to read. In fact, just yesterday I purchased Paper Towns and An Abundance of Katherines. I have already began to read Paper Towns, and I really enjoy it so far.

I find the way you wrote The Fault in Our Stars to be wondrous. As a beginner writer like myself, I know that authors typically make their main characters the same gender as themselves. You chose not to, and the book still came out amazing. In fact, I think that made the book more emotional than if, say, Augustus was the main character.

Do you have any tips for a beginner writer like myself. I am recently writing my first novel. I have a basic storyline but no title. How can I make my writing feel emotional and powerful, and how can I make readers connect with the main character (her name is April, by the way)? Thanks!

Dear John:
I’m a huge fan from Chile and also part of the fan club of TFIOS and LFA.
I must say that i enjoy your writing, i deeply enjoy it and you inspired me to start writing my ideas.
As part of the fan club, we want to ask you some questions in a videochat or if you can answer some of them in a video.
Thank you so much, you change my life

Dear John Green,

To be honest I didn’t think that I would like your work. But after I had seen the movie for The Fault In Our Stars I couldn’t get enough. So I went and bought the book. Just let me tell you that at first I thought that this was based off of something that had happened in your life. I just thought that you were lying in your authors note saying that it wasn’t. But as I started to finish this book I realized that your were just the an amazing writer with a wonderful imagination. I know that this sounds childish but it is true. My friend and I were talking about this book (TFIOS) the other day and he said that you were a wizard that controls his heart. But then I corrected him saying that you control everyone’s hearts because you are a powerful and emotional writer. I will be reading the rest of your books. Even though you are probably not even going to read this or respond, I am glad that I was able to step out of my comfort zone to be able to tell you how much I love your book.

Hello John,
I am a nerdfighter and some of us Australia nerdfighters would like to know if you be able to come to Australia… We don’t know if there’s a specific event that you would want to be at if you did come… But! We are willing to fundraise to get you here and back again.
Thanks for maybe reading this.
Sincerely,

Hello John Green,

I am a huge fan of your books. That may be because I am a mix between Margo and Alaska. And yes, my name is actually Alaska. Anyway I have read each book at least 10 times. I was wondering if you could come do a book signing in the Atlanta area sometime. Thanks for taking the time to read this.

Dear John Green,

I probably cant say anything that has already been said but I just wanted to say thank you for making books exciting again, your writing is inspiring and it really inspires my writing (I don’t mean like ripping your style off or anything) and I just think you have some of the most realistic characters that I have ever read. Looking for Alaska is one of my favorite books and I am so glad that it is being turned into a movie finally.
Congratulations on all of your success by the way, you definitely deserve it, and I will continue to be a fan. I hope one day I can work with you(it is on the bucket list)
thank you,
just a fan (P.S. the smoking metaphor in TFIOS is genius)

Hi john, I speak from Spain andalucia specifically, I think you’re a great writer because the first thing that get us to stay wanting more, and second that we put us into the character I think that is what makes a great writer. Hopefully I can continue reading your books. In Spain they have only translated the three fault in our stars, paper towns and an abundances of katharines and I love all three of them are just perfect, I hope soon translate others and to continue to enjoy your words. HOPEFULLY COME TO SPAIN FOR SURE THAT WOULD BE A SUCCESS, AND I CAN ASSURE THAT I WOULD BE THE FIRST IN THE QUEUE, ANDALUCIA AWAITS YOU WITH LOVE! THANKS FOR THE VIEW rejoice WITH YOUR WORDS, YOU BIG JOHN!

Dear Mr green,

A few weeks back my friends and I went to see the film,” The fault in our stars”. I cried hopelessly throughout the film, not at how Gus died, but at the relationship that Gus and Hazel had accquired. Going to see the film intrigued me into reading the book; The book i must say, was also a magnificent triumph! A very real, raw and inspiring story which was great to read to grasp an insight into what life with cancer is like, which is interesting to me as my auntie is battling it.
I also became hooked on looking for Alaska, I enjoyed it even more than TFIOS! I loved how it again was a very real tale, of how suddenly someone you love can just leave your life forever; it really makes you think of you and others around you! As i loved your two stories so much, today I went and got An abundance of Katherines and Will Grayson Will Grayson, and i’m sure i’ll love these two as much as the last! Thanks for being a very inspiring writer, in love with your work.

Dear john,
I absolutely adore your books. Not only well-written but draws you in like the light that attracts the moth. I’ve read every book except for paper towns, I couldn’t get my hands on that one (yet). I am writing this to you from Abudhabie (yes 1 hour away from Dubai) and I must say that thousands of people are reading your book in just my area and I really appreciate you sharing your writing talent with everyone.

Your book was truly inspiring. A wonderful love story that warms the heart. It was so happybthat it made you smile. But still made you cry. Also it was true no original happy ending like a fairytale it showed how cruel and unfair Cancer really is. But it didn’t make youboard because it still had funny parts. You are a truly inspiring wrighter. I love your book and I’m planning on reading another one but the fault in our stars is the one I’m referring to if you where confused. :) :) :)

Dear John Green,
I can’t describe how much your book meant to me. I have read all your books and they are all truly wonderful. Even though you made me cry I loved every page of The Fault in Our Stars. I love how you tell it like it is. You don’t sugar coat anything and in a way that makes it more comforting. All the quotes and metaphors inside metaphors in the book was so mind boggling. They are so beautiful and true and that’s why its was so special for me. You are so talented and have encouraged me to keep writing even if I get stuck. I am from New York so please come here. I am dying to meet you. You are my favorite author and it would mean so much to me. In love with all your work, thank you!

Umm hey john green I can’t believe I’m writing you because I have been thinking of writing you for awhile now and I have wanted to say so much to you before you just have the biggest impact on me some authors don’t relize the impact they have on people and I just think those ones ignorant and I hope your not one of them because your kind of my hero I have read all of your books and I hope one day I will get to meet you it would really be a dream come true and yea I guess I like your books because they are so relatable and true and realistic well thanks for being an amazing writer

Dear John Green,
I am an 18 year old South African muslim who enjoys your novels (especially Abundance of Katherines and Paper Towns). I first read The Fault In Our Stars and enjoyed it on so many levels. I insisted that my mom go to watch the film with me and she really enjoyed it. I am proud to say that you are my New Favorite Author.
The reason why I enjoy your novels is because I found it very easy to understand the main characters in the stories. I have my own share of Katherines, my own Hassan and I’ve had my own Margo Roth Spiegelman once upon a time.
I have recommended my friends to read your stories and they all started with TFIOS and I hope that they continue with your other novels.
I don’t know how you do it, but you find a way for individuals to see themselves in the stories that you write. I enjoy the stories also because they have to do with real situations that we avoid on a regular basis and we look for a way to get through it.
In conclusion: I hope that you keep writing. You help all of us to see the good in the bad which allows us to live our lives as they are.
Your #1 Fan,
Riedhwaan Karriem
