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!

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

I love this book and I’m incredibly excited for the movie to come out. But, South Korea has not been listed for the release dates. When will the movie be released in Korea?

Video Game Tips You Can Use Today

Video games are available for both consoles and computer
systems, and have popularity tracing back several decades.
You should know a few things about video games, even if
you are not a gamer yourself. The following article
contains video game tips anyone can use.

Downloadable content, or DLC, is available for most games today.
These are mostly bonuses and game expansions that
you need to pay money to access. If you really enjoy a game, it can be worth the expense.
However, watch the numbers carefully. DLC is very expensive sometimes,
make sure you kjnow what it will cost.

When gifting a game, make sure to find the ESRB
rating; this is essential if the gift is for a kid. ESRB ratings
can clarify what ages the game is best for and will point out whether the game contains violence.
It will allow you to figure out if this is a good purchase or not
for the person getting it.

If you see that problems are beginning to develop with your child due to their involvement with video games,
it is best that you give them a time out. If this happens, tell him that he needs to find a place to save, then shut the game
down and redirect him to another activity. Try taking
them to the park or on a bike ride.

Whenever you have a child that plays video games, you
should set some rules on how long they are allowed to play.

A good limit is less than two hours per day. This keeps their priorities straight and prevents eyestrain.

When playing games, it is important to stay hydrated.
Video games can help those who are depressed but be careful not to become addicted and forget to take care of your body’s basic needs.
Becoming dehydrated is dangerous, which is why you need to remember to drink plenty of water when playing.

You don’t need to only play games on a system build for
them, you may already be able to play them if you’re accessing them from an Internet enabled device.
Most titles available for console also provide the option to play on your computer.

Consider your children and if they can handle games rated
“mature”. Modern consoles are able to avoid these types of games without a password.
Know how to monitor your kid’s gaming.

If you’re working with an older video gaming console and it isn’t working properly, avoid using any harsh cleaning solutions
on them. Blow off the dust, or use a cloth that is geared
specifically for games. Putting harsh chemicals on your games can ruin your console.

Setting up your console may pose a hassle when you purchase a
new system. Make sure you’re educated on the HD capabilities of your console or games, the
necessary accessories, and other areas of technology.
It may be a bit daunting, but it only requires a bit of research prior to your purchase.

Do you have all the equipment for your gaming experience?
You may be surprised if you just assume
you only need a controller. Read the game’s box
or look online to find out what you really need.

This ensures you don’t get home and end up disappointed.

Some games are very difficult, and you should put the game down and come back later if you are getting frustrated with losing.

If you are not having a good run, take time off and play again later.
Remember that having fun without frustration is the point of playing video games.

Video games are not just for kids anymore. In order
to get around well in the video gaming world, it is important to keep the above
advice in mind. Use them to help you get as much as you
can from video games, whether you like the spy games or just want to play tennis.
