Those of you who yearn for the bygone days of the Brotherhood 2.0 Scavenger Hunt (or are looking forward to the release of my new book Paper Towns) should check out omnictionary.com, a new site Hank and I have been working on. (Click on “Major Facts” to get started; if you poke around long enough, you’ll find the answer to that question people keep asking.) If you find the Easter Egg, feel free to discuss in comments (I hope you think it’s as awesome as I do!), but please don’t spoil the hunt for others.

(To answer the question that will be asked the most: Yes, Paper Towns will have two different covers! Cool, huh?)

I started John Green’s amazing books with TFIOS. I could NOT set my kindle down. I swear I got in trouble like 10 times for reading for so long. After the 14th read of TFIOS, I realized I needed to read something else. Not that I was sick of it, but I needed to. So I come across this website, post a bit, and find out that PT and LFA are good books to read next. I read PT and omg I couldn’t stop reading it! I can’t decide which is better: PT or TFIOS. Anyways, I next read An Abundance Of Katherine’s which I am reading ATM and am not enjoying it. It’s not one of my favorites. I mean, I know he falls in love with Lindsey. At least, I think he does. That’s what my friends tell me. It’s a good book, but not something I enjoy. I’m not even half way through it though. I hope it gets better:). Keep writing amazing books! I’m going to read Looking For Alaksa as soon as it’s available in te kindle library. I know that Paper Towns is going to be a movie but is Looking For Alaska? I hope so! I can’t wait for more books of yours!

Bom, pra ser sincera, eu já li o livro duas vezes e achei um pouquinho decepcionante. É que, eu não consigo aceitar que um livro simplesmente acabe e ponto. Não. Pra mim, os personagens são pessoas, que tem vida em algum universo paralelo. Então, o que acontece depois que o livro acaba? Eu tenho algumas dúvidas:
1) Eles ficam juntos?
2) O Ben e a Laecy ficam juntos?
3) E o Radar, como fica nessa história?
4) Ela volta algum dia para casa?
5) Quais foram os lugares que a Margo mais gostou?
6) A Myrna morreu?
7) Que curso o Q escolheu na faculdade?
8) Se ele e a Margo não ficam juntos, ele conhece outra garota e se apaixona?
9) Se ele se apaixona, é do mesmo jeito que ele gostava da Margo?
10) E os pais da Margo, o que acontece com eles?

Bom, é basicamente isso, então, se alguém puder esclarecer isso pra mim, ficarei EXTREMAMENTE agradecida. Bjs Larinha

Penso a mesma coisa sabe, a mesma coisa em A Culpa é das Estrelas. Como eles não podem ter um final depois do final? EU PRECISO SABER DA ” CONTINUAÇÃO ” DESSES LIVROS DO JOHN! Ele é meu escritor favorito, mas ás vezes acho que ele é péssimo no fato de criar finais .-.

Lauren September 26, 2014 at 2:27 pm

Eu simplesmente discordo das duas. Acho que essa é realmente a ideia de Green, fazer-nos pensar. Eu gosto de escrever também, e penso em um dia publicar algo, e acho essa ideia super interessante, de deixar o leitor curioso, deixar a mente do leitor vagar imaginando o que acontece depois. Imagino que isso é o que deixa os seus livros mais interessantes, pois você pode passar noites acordada repensando suas teorias sobre aquele final e nunca saber se isso é certo ou não. É ótimo! Eu adoro isso!

Are Algoe, New York and Gutshot, Tennessee real places? Or are they pseudo visions? Or were they completely fictional and in John Green’s mind only?

So my one friend told me to read TFIOS and i started reading it… then my girlfriend(who is now my ex) told me to read PAPER TOWNS. And honestly its the best book Ive ever read. It gave me more suspense than any movie has ever given me i was upset that h just let Margo go for like 2 weeks i read the whole book in one day, i just couldn’t stop. I’m in grade 12 and studying education next year and I’m going to try my best to get the schools to make it one of the prescribed literature books because it is just absolutely amazing. you are one really exceptionally talented writer(and there isn’t a lo of them left) please never stop writing.

Ps. i would love to meet you!!!

Mas gostei muito do final do livro a culpa e das
estrelas muito emocionante.

Who here is excited for Paper Towns THE MOVIE?????! I sure am! Does anyone know if Looking For Alaska is going to be a movie? I hope so! I’m almost done with “before.” I’m going to finish the book tonght, though. After that, I’m rereading Paper Towns and then The Fault In Our Stars. I have also read An Abundance Of Katherine’s which was okay but not one of my 10 favorite books ever. Anyways, keep writing John Green, I hope to read more of your outstanding books as soon as they are published!

I am like really inlove with your books… that’s sort of expected but i have a question…. Did you really mean or plan Gus’ name to be Augustus Waters because right now it seems like it has a joke to it..

In history class my teacher was discussing about triumvirates and how Octavian changed his name to Augustus Caesar, Augustus meaning “holy or great”..

So now, if you meant it as holy.. Augustus Waters -> Holy Waters

oh

This book is awesome, really, but I have so many questions that I will probably die if John don’t answer me. I’m sorry for my english, im from Uruguay. I want to know so many things about what happened after, like if Margo someday will return. I get mad with John because i HATE the final, but actually he’s a genius. I like to imagine that Q, after a lots of months thinking about her, he decided to go with her, and they both start a real journey. But on the other hand, I don’t know if I want Q change his way to be, am I clear? I want them to be together, but I don’t want them to change their behaviour. So, is for this that John is a genius, because he knows how to make the people’s imagination and mind explode

Dear Sir John Green , my name is Ricardo. I love his books especially paper towns, I have several questions about her book paper towns like: Quentin back ago and meets Margo? or go ahead? Ben and Lancey, Marcus and Angela are they together? What happens to Ruthie and Myrna? If you could answer me these questions I would be lisonjeado fine.

Hola John Green me encantan sus libros va tan solo lei Ciudades de papel y Bajo la misma estrella porque aca en Argentina solo estan esos dos.
Debo confesar que estoy leyendo Cuidades de papel y no me esta gustando MARGO ROTH SPIEGELMAN porque creo que lo esta volviendo loco al probre Quentin.Amo el libro pero creo que mi amistad con Margo seria pesimamente pesima.
Tal vez , y seguramente, mi opinion de Margo es mala pero nada mas le queria comentar .Obiamente que el libro seria aburrido si Margo me cayera bien asi que le agradesco que aya logrado esto.
De Bajo la misma estrella no tengo nada que decir es fantastico y perfecto pero tengo una gran intriga ¿Un dolor imperial como terminaria?
Seguramente la duda me dure toda mi vida pero aunque sea lo intento.
Gracias a usted tengo un gran amor platonico (Ansel Elgort)

Hey, my name is Marcela and I am from Uruguay, in Sotuh America (for those who dont know) I adored paper towns, I found it amusing, hilarious, and breathtaking. I could really relate to Quentin, and I just loved the road trip experience he lived with Ben, Lacey and Radar, I literally couldnt stop laughing.I enjoyed every single bit of the story, and the characters were just memorable, they felt so… alive. Well, I could go on all day, but I I would really like John to answer a couple of questions for me!! :)) Well, firstly, do Ben and Lacey end up together, I mean, as a couple ?? Does Margo ever come back? Does Radar show Angela the Worlds Biggest Black Santa Claus Collection? Does Q find someone who loves him, or for that matter decides to leave with Margo? I would absolutely lovee, if you could answerr. John Green groupie forevah ;)

Ahora lo entiendo acabo de terminar Ciudades de papel….. ahora Margo no me cae tan mal…. ahora lo entiendo todo todo todo.
Pero en cierto modo es un final abierto; aunque quisiera hacerle las preguntas a no las haré porque esto no es Bajo la misma estrella, seguramente usted no es un borracho y jamas me responderá ni siquiera lee esta pagina pero aunque sea lo intento ¿Que nos cuesta?
Usted lo publico en 2008 pero en Argentina recién salio hace unos meses. , por lo tanto jamas me responderá.
Apenas tengo 11 años pero ya leo libros que tal vez no tendría que leer.Pero que suerte que lo hice porque es maravilloso. Ojala se publiquen aquí mas libros de usted como por ejemplo Buscando Alaska.
Si lo llega a leer seria lo mejor de mi vida que me responda , pasa que tal vez ni usted sabe que esta pagina existe así que…… no lo se pero si por algún milagro lo lee lamento haberle gastado el tiempo.
Ojala que se publiquen mas libros aquí. Lo amo y gracias por haberme echo leer unos libros impresionantes.
