Reviews

“In its every aspect, The Fault in Our Stars is a triumph.” -Booklist, starred review

“Luminous.” -Entertainment Weekly

“A smartly crafted intellectual explosion of a romance.” -Kirkus, starred review

A blend of melancholy, sweet, philosophical, and funny. Green shows us true love…and it is far more romantic than any sunset on the beach.” -New York Times Book Review

“One doesn’t like to throw around phrases like “instant classic” lightly, but I can see The Fault in Our Stars taking its place alongside Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret in the young-adult canon. Green’s book is also a good example of why so many adult readers are turning to young-adult literature for the pleasures and consolations they used to get from conventional literary fiction.” -Time

“Green writes books for young adults, but his voice is so compulsively readable that it defies categorization. The Fault in Our Stars proves that the hype surrounding Green is not overblown.” -NPR

“A pitch-perfect, elegiac comedy…it will linger long and hard in the minds of teens and former teens.” -USA Today

“An achingly beautiful story.” -SLJ, starred review

“John Green deftly mixes the profound and the quotidian in this tough, touching valentine to the human spirit.” -Washington Post

Today marks the day that I have finished reading all your books, and I now have nothing to do with my life. Thank you for giving me an infinity within a number of pages! The tortute in which my emotions faced while reading your books continues as I now have nothing left to read, thank you John Green! Thank you! Haha

its fiction. it ends when the book ends. there is no future in fiction. isnt that what john was conveying through peter van houten? if youre looking for answers, you wont find them honey. like hazel and gus didnt get any answers to what happens after an imperial affliction. it ends. the book ends. no future. no ‘what happens to hazel’ or ‘will her parents will stay together’ or anything of that sort

Dear John Green.
There are some people, who creates infinite words for you and some infinities are bigger than other infinities
There are some people, they provide pains with using words and pain demands to be felt from that people.
There are some authors, they can kill you in the middle of sentences suddenly.
There are some authors can make a person whose only fear is being forgotten unforgettable
I am not a New York Bestseller but I’m an author. I can bring a paper and a pen and my own thoughts together, and I made up my own fantasy world. Dear Mr. Green, to my opinion, there is no great author or bad author. Everyone can be an author if they can hold a pen and write their feelings on a paper with all their sincerity. You’re an author too and you’re living and writing in your own utopic world with your own stars and also with your own faults belongs to your life.
With The Faults In Our Stars, I must say you’ve done a turning point in my life. I have same feeling with Hazel Grace who was affected from An Iperial Affliction. I mean The Faults in Our Stars is mine An Imperial Affliction.
Dear John Green, I am not cancer and I am not going to die from cancer just like Augustus. I am a huma being and I can be admired to everything belongs to life and I am not a person that being attached to so many things. With your help, we found faults of our stars in our own galaxy and we put every one of them in every single paper on that book.
Just like Hazel Grace and Gus Waters, our inceptions are became a book. That book isn’t exist but it has an end. I am not sure if you’ll see that message or will you read it, or will you reply it or not. I am sure that you can see lots of message like this everyday.
I am not Hazel Grace and can’t be like her. And you’re not a Peter Van Houten and you can’t be like him. But, you should know their feeling very well better than anyone else in this world. The Faults in Our Stars is our milestone.
All I want is just a small reply for this message. Please, help us finding our faults in our stars. I will give that reply as a birthday gift to him.
All I want is an answer. “Dear Joseph Ozgun, … bla bla bla…” the rest up to you.
It is not because you don’t trust us, but you don’t trust us. We believe in you sir. Have a nice day…

A small note: I’ll continue to send until, reply to my message. Sorry :)

I’m French, so if I told you parry it’s weird because I use: google translation …
Your book, a masterpiece! a wonder! Certain to go Peter Van Houten is a horrible character, I’d rather an honest person, I like realistic! Hazel Grace when I think it is the most of all the sober adolescent girls, character is special is particuliaire, but I think that if she had lived her cancer otherwise it would differente and consequently, less interesting! Nevertheless it remains it remains only …
now turn to Augustus Waters, I think this man a lot of quality, reasons to be, it does not lose foot! it afronte his fate bravely. To choose between love is her personal health, he chose Hazel, I think you are very the sober, and your wife and your family is lucky to have you on your side … I love our otherwise more stars all! Even if all returned nothing, alors I will say that I love this book at infinity of my heart even if some aresome infinities are bigger than others … so I’ll say to you john: I love your book (all men) …

5.Did Monica and Isaac get back together ?
6.At the end of the movie Hazel came out in a dress and had the note does she die then and there or is she just look at the stars?

Agree with Raven on this on. I have read TFIOS continuously for 30 times and I always remember to read the Author’s Note. It is a work of fiction AIA (as Raven said) is not real.

Tess May 2, 2015 at 6:50 am

Just because it’s fiction doesn’t mean John Green can’t reply, I too, have read the author’s note and I’m sure Keely has too. I love books and read them all the time. They make me feel at home and not alone. If you hop onto instagram and search up #books, you’ll find a lot of people feel the same. The Fault In Our Stars is beautifully written and one of my favourite books. Wanting to find out what happens after the story ends, is completely normal for anyone who HAS IMAGINATION. An Imperial Affliction was mentioned in the book, was Hazel’s favourite book, therefore has existed, are you saying that Hazel too, has never existed? There is absolutely nothing wrong with wanting to sound like your favourite character, with wanting to be, to think like them. They make us all a better person each day.
And even though they have only been invented by a heartbreaking author, and are stories, they have existed with US. They are real within OUR hearts, because we have loved with them, cried with them, and been with them every step of the way.

Dear John Green,
Last 4th of July I went and saw The Fault in our Stars at a drive in. I instantly fell in love with the movie. When school started I went into the library and I checked out The Fault in out Stars to read. I couldn’t put it down. I am in love with that book. I have also read Looking for Alaska. I am in love with that book too. Ever since school started your books haven’t been on the shelves in the library. I have been on hold for Paper Towns for a little over a month. Oh. And just to let you know. I don’t read a lot. I read some but I’m not the kind of person that reads constantly. Over Christmas break my sister and I went to a bookstore and I bought The Fault in our Stars. I have probably read it 8 times since then. It might sound obsessive but it’s true. I love that book. I feel the same way about The Fault in our Stars as Hazel Grace does about AIA. I quote it all of the time.

Hannah March 11, 2015 at 12:26 am

Dear Mr. John Green,

I assume that this letter/comment is going to get lost in the sea of other comments, but I’m still going to post this here in hopes of a response of some sort.
{Introduction}
[My name is Hannah, I am under 100 years of age and over 3 years of age. I do not have cancer, and do not know what it is like, but I do have a few friends with cancer. One has skin cancer, another has breast cancer, a third has brain cancer, and another has eye cancer and is blind. Two of the four have read TFIOS, and love it dearly. The other two have not read it, but I'm sure they would love it. Also, I am now determined to not smoke unlit cigarettes for metaphorical purpose.]
(Excuse my very non-Shakespearian writing and for my lack of vocabulary)
First off, I wanted to say THANK YOU for not ending the book mid-sentence. However, I still feel like I’m missing the last 20 pages of my book.
It feels like bookception; I’m wondering what happened to Anna, and what happened to Hazel as well.
To start off,
I am 95% positive that Hazel dies, just like Anna in An Imperial Affliction.
Secondly,
I, unlike Hazel, am curious as to what Omnis cellula e cellula means, outside of its literal translation into All cells come from cells. I have no idea why the idea of life going on and on has to do with what becomes of Anna’s mother. I know she dies eventually, as all humans do, but what I wonder is if she marries the Dutch Tulip Man or not. I get that he is a metaphor for death, but he still has a physical form, and I wonder what happens of the physical form of the Dutch Tulip Man.
Also,
What becomes of Isaac? I feel that he will either be very alone for the rest of his life, playing video games, sleeping, having his mother help him around, putting up with blind-people puns, etc. Or maybe he finds another Monica who has another idea of Always, and he ends up happy with true love.
(Running out of transitions that I haven’t used already),
What happens to Hazel’s parents?
Going on with the idea that Hazel dies, I think that her parents would be devastated, and thinking about her on a daily/weekly basis(depending on how long its been since Hazel’s death). Maybe Hazel’s mother becomes a 30x better Peter who doesn’t talk about the cancer down there. And maybe her father just continues on with work. I do think that they would often meet with Augustus’ parents, since they had children who had a relationship bigger than any infinity I know, and since they both experience the sadness of their children passing away due to cancer.
Second to lastly,
This is something that is not important at all,
but if Hazel and Augustus do go to heaven(I don’t mean this as a question of heaven or hell, I mean it as do they go to heaven or do they just die? I suppose this is just a matter of heaven, and yes, I do understand you are not the ruler of the universe, although I believe you are the ruler of the literary universe)
Finally,
These aren’t all my questions, but I assume they are enough to burden you with. (sorry, but I’m still asking because curiosity)
My last question is, can I read you grocery lists?

Not smoking an unlit cigarette,
Hannah

P.S Please do not move to Amsterdam and become a drunkard whom loving readers end up disliking. (To put it lightly)
Thank you again.

Emma K. March 15, 2015 at 10:56 am

Hi, I just wanted to say how amazing it is that you [Hannah] took the time to write out all those questions. Although Mr. Green may never get back to them, I know what you mean. TFIOS is my life. I’ve read it continuously 30 times. No other words. The Author’s Note has always nagged at me though, this is a work of fiction. So while it is fair to ponder about all these questions (and trust me, I have) I don’t think it is fair to ask them. Whereas, then John Green would become exactly like a “mini” Van Houten.

Dear Mr John green,
I have a few words that I think I should share with you and I would just like to begin with thank you. Thank you for sharing your view with us and I would also like to thank you for saving my life. I read your books and suddenly I’m best friends with a girl with cancer or a genius boy and his judge Judy loving friend. I am a nerd and I guess a loner and your books have given me friends. It’s pathetic I know but I just want to say thank you, mr John green.

Dear John (hope you don’t mind if I call you john)
I just have to say your book made me cry more then when my hamster died(that’s a lot of tears). I fell in love and got my heart broken reading your book. You taught me that some infinities that don’t seem to go on actually do as Augustus and Hazel’s love will be an infinity bigger then any infinity I can even begin to imagine. I have a few questions as others do.
1. Does Hazel die?
2.Does Hazel ever fall in love again?
3. What happens to Isac?
4.What happens to Peter Van Houghton?
5.Finally is An Imperial Affliction a real book? If so I need to read that book
I will be very pleased if you were to answer you can reach me at my email mianeikirk@outlook.com
P.S Thank you this book has changed my life

Andrea Childers April 24, 2015 at 11:52 am

I love this comment! It’s so sweet in true Hazel form :) And I’ve looked up An Imperial Affliction. If I remember correctly, it is not a full book. It is not a full book that exists where we can actually buy it. Apparently it’s all John’s lovely creation. I really wish John would write a book titled An Imperial Affliction just to add more to TFIOS.

Dear Mr.Green

I read your book ‘The Fault In Our Star’ and I have a few questions, I hope you reply to this, as the authors ‘extraordinary misfortune’ reply Augustus Waters.

The first question,
if Gus just a cigarette to his lips and did not turn it on, how he knew he had to replace the cigarette?
and why Hazel aloof?
why Isaac really like Monica?
and why did you choose a heroine when you are a man?
and why do you know about medical affairs?
I hope you’re quick to reply.
Thank you, greetings Lisha (Readers of Indonesia, Southeast Asia)

Hi, I loved your book THE FAULT IN OUR STARS! I stayed up half the night reading the book. Some kids at my school said they watched the movie. They say in the end Hazel and Gus have sex, then hazel dies the next morning. They also say after that Gus commits suicide. I’m not sure if that’s right, is it? I also wanted to know if An Imperial Affliction is a real book. Last but not least, does hazel DIE? Please write in your comments or whatever because I really want to know more. (also its not fair if you don’t tell your fans, after Hazel wanted Peter to tell her about Anna). I think you should totally make a sequel, just like in your story/ Isaac tells Hazel that Peter is making a sequel/ every one would love a sequel to the fault in our stars, even if its not that long! I love your work!

Yours truly,
Hailey Grace

Jocelyn March 17, 2015 at 12:40 am

Dear Mr.Green
I assumed that you would follow another author’s footsteps, not in a hateful way but nonetheless by not having an ending beyond the ending of your book. So when I was not totally satasfied with the wonderfully horrible ending of one of my favorite books, i decided to instead write my own ending. I know this might just get lost in the endless fan comments you receive, but i decided there’s nothing to lose. So, the following is an alternate ending to TFIOS i pictured.
Ending
I looked at the computer screen, tears welling up; these tears filling the dam that I had tried to build around my heart. I didn’t want to cry. I willed myself not to, because I had cried enough. But the dam broke, and I was flooded with the same waves of sadness which I had saved for the 10 on the scale of pains I’d felt. Our little infinity had not been eternal, no matter how much we both had ached for it to be so. One intertwined hearts had shattered and now those pieces of love that I still had for him floated in the numbness of space. We had all been made in the universe to die and become the matter in which new consciousness was born. I knew that. It was like the Phoenix, who was born of the ashes of it’s ancestors. Eternity did not exist in this world. But the essence of true love lost would always hang in the air, wafting through the tides of emotion that seized us all. But the love that Augustus and I had shared was not lost. It was only reinforced by the wall that separated us between the worlds of life and death, letting the heart grow fonder; letting us know that life truly wasn’t a wish-granting factory. I knew we would meet again, for now I believed that there indeed is capital-S Something out there for us to look forward to at the end of our days, after every Last Good Day that existed in this world.
And when we reached that Something, there would no longer be sympathy for others to feel for us. No longer would either one of us worry that we would hear the last ticks of our life give out as we burst like the ticking bomb we knew we were. For we would be together, and we’d both be alive to live without death; we’d be able to cherish our new lives of death, in the mysterious Something that would inevitably become the homes of every being that ever existed. That would be our eternity.
. . .

Epilogue
I had fallen. Fallen in love, fallen in despair, and fallen asleep. I could feel the familiar sensation of being with Augustus in that third space that we had always shared when we talked on the phone. I felt his presence, but I couldn’t see him in the empty vacuum of my mind. My eyes were still closed, but I didn’t dare open them in fear that I would only see the room around me, devoid of another soul. I didn’t want my world crashing down on me all over again at the sight of my empty room.
But I could really feel him. My heart raced as I whispered his name.
“Augustus Waters”
“I’m here.” It was barely a breath, but I heard it. It was Gus’s voice. I knew it. But it couldn’t be true.
“Okay?” All my doubt vanished. It no longer mattered that I had been told he was dead, that I’d seen his lifeless body, that I’d tossed a hand full of dirt into his grave. For our love was too strong for that to keep us apart.
My eyes opened and I looked around my room, desperate as my liquid hope poured through the cracks and left me empty. It was stupid of me to have risked the slightest ounce of hope.
But then I saw the door to my closet creak open ever so slightly, and I walked to it, my steps weighed down by apprehension. My hand reached the handle and the door flew open, filling the room with white tendrils of steam or smoke or- clouds. Clouds, that Augustus had claimed he had always wanted to live in. Clouds, as soft and light as the wild cotton that flew through the streets in summer. Clouds, on which I let myself fall on top of, hugging my sides with soft tufts of steam. I floated on these clouds, looking up at the bright blue sky that replaced the ceiling of my room. I flew
higher and higher, until I saw him. He had two legs, and his smile wasn’t crooked but full in its goofy glory. He wore all white, and stood tall; a picture of health.
We embraced, and the space between our lips vanished instantly. W flew, butterflies, around each other until we reached the stars; until we righted the fault in our stars.

Wow, reading your ending to the amazing story was so perfect, Even though I still think that the way john green ended his book was perfect, I still loved your version of the ending. When I read this, I really felt like I found those last three ripped papers of The Fault In Our Stars that I’d been looking for since I read the book ( Which has been about three years now).
Thank you for writng something that touched my heart, as much as chocolate does.

Dear John Green,

One day I will finish all of your books. I will own two copys of each book, one copy being my personal copy for notes and highlights, the other for my friends, family, future kids, and so on to borrow and read. I have finished The Fault In Our Stars,(which is the first book I have read of yours), and I have just started Paper Towns. While I do wonder what happened to everyone at the end of the TFIOS, I know that you intended it to be unknown and so therefor I won’t bug you with questions. I hope to one day be a writer and an author as good as you. I know I won’t ever be as good as you,(wait, that doesn’t make sense. I want to be a writer like you, but no one will ever be a writer like you. Yea, yea that makes better sense.) but I am determined to be the best I can be. I also want to be an explorer and a traveler, and write about everything I see and share my experiences with the world. I just want you to know that you are one of my biggest inspirations and I will always look up to you as an author. You are an excellent writer, and I hope that you don’t ever stop writing, because I will always and forever (while I’m on earth) read your books. You are my Peter Van Houten, and I hope to meet you one day.

Sincerely,
Michalla

Я недавно прочёл ваш замечательный роман, еле оторвался, от его прочтения. И понимаю, что роман так обрывается из-за того, что Хейзел или умерла, или у неё ухадшилось самочувствие. Но у меня есть вопросы:
Не было ли такой возможности, что Хейзел забеременела от Огастуса и прожить достаточно долго, чтоб родить прекрасного ребёнка, что ей всё равно говорили, что это не безапасно, но она ни кого не слушала в надежде хоть в этой крохе вновь увидеть Огастуса, и вследствии умерла при родах, оставляя ребёнка для воспитания своим родителям и родителям Огастуса?
Что произошло с родителями Хейзел и Огастуса?
Смогли ли родители Хейзел вновь поехать в Папуа – Новую Гвинею?
Были ли у них ещё дети?
Что произошло с Моникой?
Смогла ли она осознать всю тяжесть своего поступка, и попросить прошение?
Что будет дальше с Кейтлин?
Сможет ли она найти свою любовь?
Поймёт ли она когда-то Хейзел?
Сможет ли Патрик выбрать со своей скорлупы?
И что будет с остальными “членами клуба” поддержки?
Что будет с Айзеком?
Что сталось с качелями Хейзел?
Они попали в хорошие руки?
Перешли ли они дальше?
Смогли пережить век?
Что сталось с Питером ван Хутен он?
Сумел ли он написать ещё один роман?
Что случилось с матерью Анны?
Что произошло с бывшей женой Питера ван Хутена?
Что сталось с Лидевью?
Вышли ли она замуж за своего бойфренда?
Были ли у неё дети?
И наверное самый главный вопрос, который интересует всех:
Смогли ли Айзек вставить электронные глаза и видеть девушек сквозь одежду?

Mr.green,

I am reading your book i have come trapped in the world, most of the time I catch myself wondering why, why did Van Houten have to be so evil, why is the books name “the fault in our stars”?, what happens to hazel after Augustus dies, and will you spare your time to write a squeal? Please answer me.

hey John Green, just gotta say
1. love your work
2. go Hoosiers!
3. how could you do this to me as a reader??!!
4. I know exactly how you could that because I too am a writer
5. sorry for the lazy capitalization, punctuation and general grammar
6. (which is really what I wanted to say before I got off on multiple other tangents)
when I first heard of you, I was sitting in my AP European History class about to watch crash course. After which I actually found history slightly interesting. the next time was when I saw the movie trailer for the fault in our stars and said to myself “wow, just another movie adaption of a book specifically designed to make little girls cry”
then my dad said “yeah don’t bother with that its silly. we all know the girl dies.”

we couldn’t have been more wrong (PS. sorry!)

the next was when my friend Megan gave me her kindle to borrow and read 3 different books (because that is literally all I ever am doing.) one of those books was looking for Alaska. having seen her literally wear the book around her neck I was intrigued, and after reading it, awestruck. (and yes it made me cry)
Not one of the 3 books, but also on the kindle was the fault in our stars. so a gave it a chance and I couldn’t be more happy that I did. (and yes I cried for that too, both reading the book and watching the movie afterwards)
I actually finished reading that book in the middle of my AP Language class and found myself looking up in horror at the class staring at me as I flipped frantically for the rest of the story. I was so engrossed that I was caught completely off guard by the end of the book. I didn’t want it to end. and I love that feeling so much I want to give it to others.
I really just wanted to say, no matter however it may sound, thanks for sharing.

Hello Mr.John Green!!

It was indeed my privilege to read Fault In Our Stars-it was a very beautiful book, an amazing love story, quite an piece of art….I don’t have anymore words to praise it!! It just changed my world. Your quotes are so lovely that I just can’t take them out of my head…..so spectacular, mind blowing!

But I am really sorry to say that though you touched my heart, you broke it as well and made me hate you. Why did you have to kill Augustus?? He as just too perfect……their relationship was the best I had ever seen in my whole life. I understand they were both cancer patients but still they could have died together or atleast both of them could have got cured…lived together for atleast for some 2-3 years. I was so deeply hurt and I still remember crying so much after reading the words, “Augustus dies 8 days later in the ICU”. It was so much pain to me and all of the readers. Why do you hurt your readers so much???? Killing the protagonists is a sin I believe…..I am sorry to say again.

But still I am in love with your works. After reading TFIOS, I read “Looking for Alaska” with so much expectation. But again you killed Alaska. Why? Why? Don’t do this anymore….

I just have a few questions to be answered,
1. What happens to Hazel after Gus dies? I mean does she die too? If so when? Or is she cured and lives forever and loves someone else?
2.Does Peter Van Houten finishes or rewrites the ending of An Imperial Affliction?
3. What happens to Isaac? Is he blind forever or are there robot or artificial eyes for him?

Please reply to me her or at vyshnavi2k@gmail.com. You are one of best authors. Please don’t be like Peter Van Houten by not replying to your fan. I love you and your books.

Dear Mr John Green,
Hello again ! ( I was that person who was the worst writer but loves to write.
And I asked if Isaac wants to write something for my funeral )

I have really important(for me) question;
Do you believe in what Hazel says in the book ? Do you agree with her about the life after the death (cause I believe)?

And about Peter Van Hulten ; I think he is a good man ,really . But why he turns crazy ? Because of the death of Anna ? Is he the dutch shades man ? What is his story?what happened to him ?

Thank you (:
Reyhane ( 16 years +about 1 month)
Love you

Dear John Green:

You probably won’t read this, but I feel better with myself telling you this. Who knows? Maybe you got a really frustrating day and you start reading your fans comments, the truth is, that life is unpredictable.

I just finish reading The Fault In Our Stars, again. I have to say that is my favorite book. No because is romance or comedy, and definitely it’s not my favorite one because is “perfect” (actually, not even books are perfect), I love your book for just one reason.

It gives me hope.

Reality is a bitch, Mr. Green. I’ve got the theory that if every person in the world live without seen the reality, they will be completely happy. Your book, that it’s not too far from a reality, is hopeful.

Life is made of “those” moments. Hazel and Augustus didn’t have a good life. They were sick, dying just for breathing, and even knowing that they were gonna say soon they were happy. Maybe, I could be happy.

We can’t choose our lifes, we born for die, that’s it. It might end in a middle of a sentences or in a middle of a dream. But we can choose how the life it, and most important, how to see it. I’m very young, Mr. Green. And I’ve decided to live my life, seeing everything from a different perspective thanks to you.

That is why your book is my favorite one.

Citing your book: “It’s possible to live with pain”

Sincerely,
Valeria.
