The trailer’s great. They involved basically all the great quotes from the book, the atmosphere is incredible, the actores picked well. But somehow I’m afraid “The Fault in our Stars” will become sort of popularistic because of the movie. I read it a year ago when I had some health problems and it actually really help me, even thought it wasn’t as bad as cancer. By then, no one knew it in my country (Czech republic). Last week, when I went to the hospital, I saw another girl with the book. But with the book translated to czech! Even the title sounds really corny and it was the moment I realized suddenly everyone has become a huge fan of the story. I can’t get rid of the feeling it isn’t about this great story anymore. I’m afraid everyone loves because it has become “cool” to be in to t.f.i.o.s. I hope it won’t be the case, that all the grateness won’t be destroyed. But the hope is getting smaller every day.

I am looking forward to TFIOS, of course! But I was most impressed by your response to the Salinger quote: “I’m sick of not having the courage to be an absolute nobody.” You said (I paraphrase) “It takes tremendous courage to do something worth doing, rather than worrying about being famous for doing it.

I am 62 years old (oldest nerdfighter?) and have been writing all my life. I finally have sold a book, which will be coming out this summer. I am going to have to do a lot of social networking to promote it, which sucks, because I would rather write. And I know I will never be as well known as some of my favorite writers, like you, Barbara Kingsolver, and Stephen Chbosky. But I need to tell myself, time & again, that the writing is what counts. Thanks for the reminder!

What’s your book called? I’d really like to read it once it comes out.

Sorry this is probably annoying but I’m like 11 and I’ve read your book about 8 times so I am super exited for the movie to come out and I would greatly appreciate if the movie included the song Clouds by Zach Sobiech who died of bone cancer after writing his song, and I think that the song would go perfectly well in the movie. So if you can do anything about that, I woud be very grateful to you. Thank you :)

Eu não sabia o que esperar desse livro pensei,que seria mais um desses romances água com açúcar e clichês que já estamos costumados a ler e reler .

Mais o que encontrei algo inédito onde não botam pessoas doentes de câncer como vencedoras e lutadoras ,politicamente corretas e boas samaritanas .Mostra que possuem defeitos e tudo mais além de usarem o velho humor negro como uma forma de aliviar a dor dos dias de um efeito colateral ou de uma cobaia de médicos que talvez não queiram apenas curar seus pacientes talvez além disse querem um pouco de renome e coisa e tal.

No mais ,o que tenho apenas a dizer é obrigada por fazer esse livro maravilhoso.Obrigada por tudo não sou sua fã já que só li uma obra tua e dizer que sou sua fã seria meio poser .Apenas quero te dizer obrigada e falar algo mais tu és um gênio.

Espero que consiga ler já que não falo inglês mais sei lá espero que leia e me responda gostaria muito.

PS:Desculpe os erros ortográficos acho que posso ser considerada uma das piores escritoras do mundo .Desculpe.

De mais uma Hazel espalhada pelo mundo.

John Green,
You produced a truly beautiful story. I love that you made Hazel and Augustus fall in love, making it seem that everyone can be loved no matter what. It warms my heart that you wrote them to become lovers, and I feel like I can relate quite a bit to Augustus’ fear of oblivion. I am scared of not existing, of not leaving my mark on the world, so that I will still be remembered in the future, and just like Augustus I don’t think I will leave my mark before my time comes.
I adore your story and have never had so many emotions to any story like I have yours. I love the way you write and the way you finished the story. However, I have a question about Isaac and Hazel, is there any chance that they may have gotten together as a couple of the story had continued?

Yours sincerely,
Monique Howie
