The Fault In Our Stars

Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel’s story is about to be completely rewritten.

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

Dear Mr. Green,
I love your book, the fault in our stars! Just like Hazel, I am curious about what happens to the characters after the book ends. So, I was wondering does Hazel meet another guy? Does Augustus Waters return in her dreams? It would mean so much to me and all of your loving fans if you make another book or maybe just like a really small book that says something about what happens to the characters in the future. Or maybe you can just email it to me @carmeladizon5@gmail.com
Just like Peter Van houten did. I am 11 years old and i love reading books- not just reading them but also understanding them. i mean i understand them it’sjust that i can’t get enough. thank you so much sir.

Hello Mr. Green, I am a huge fan of your work but I must say, The Fault in Our Stars has to be my favorite. I’m sure you hear this all the time, but I have fallen in love with the concept, the quotes, the characters, and your interpretation on cancer with the upsetting yet humorous intake on the subject. Right now in my life, I am facing a horrible obstacle, although not as horrible as Hazel’s or Augustus’s or Isaac’s or many other people on this planet, but it is difficult for me. I am a 14 year old girl and I am moving to another state across the country, I have to leave my life behind and it kills me (metaphorically of course). Your book and the movie’s interpretation is what has helped me work through it and accept that the world isn’t a wish granting factory. I must thank you for my new out look on life and the love I now feel towards everything. Thank you for creating Hazel Grace Lancaster and Augustus Waters.

Dear Mr. Green, I love and I’m a big fun f your book the fault in our stars. But their is a problem, I can’t seem to finish the book. So what I mean is the I was so caught up into this book but after chapter 22, I felt like I really knew Gus, as if he was like a brother or something. This may be hard to believe but I had a mental breakdown. First I heard about it from my teacher who say it was very sentimental, but I didn’t think the it was possible to feel so close to something was is not even real, but I did. You know I actually wished Gus never died and also wished that they got married or something and lived happily every after, but I guess we don’t always get what we want. But I have to know one thing, will hazel find love again and live up the life she deserved? If have have time I would love a respond and my email is dioplinda@gmail.com
Sincerely, from an admirable fan.

Dear Mr. green, The fault in our stars is an amazing book which I have read numerous times now, I love how you have written it in such a clever and honest way, It’s such an interesting book to read that makes you look at the world in a totally different way, the only issue I have is the ending, you leave us on such a cliff hanger, which I understand completely but there’s so many questions that I have, Hazel is left with just a letter, nothing else, is she happy to have something written by Augustus or does she want more, is it enough for her ? Also does she tell anyone about finding the letter? Does she ever fall in love again? How long does she live, days, weeks, months, maybe even years? Any kind of response would be appreciated, thankyou.

But what are criteria for high quality translation services.

Harrisco Translation- they may be easier to “feel” and thus
we tag them as more “real”. It may sound a bit confusing, but certified translations need not come from certified translators.

Well first, i would appreciate a masterpiece. Which left me frustrating about An Imperial Affliction. Am an English literature student in search of a research topic to do thesis. What are your suggestions, how about doing a thesis on The Fault in our Stars ? Please am waiting as anxiously as Hazel Grace.

Ok so there is this app named wattpad, that you might have heard of, and there are just regular people on it writing books, and it is amazing. Anyway so there is this book “the fault in our stars the sequel” and it is awesome. It is a complete run off of “the fault in our stars” and you might be thinking “oh man not another person with ideas for this book!?! But once you read it you will realize that it is very good, and to make it amazing is just a little professional help, so please consider making this person feel special. I don’t really know her name and she doesn’t even know that I exist but still please download this app and read her book. You can make a child’s dream come true.

Hello, If you are reading this, then your reading a comment and a thank you letter from a 12 year old future NY Times Bestseller. Yes, I read and watched TFIOS with amusement. And it gave me encouragement to write a book that’s published online and will be printed later on somesometime in 2015. A fanfiction type of book and a historical fiction book. Yes, fanfiction, like 1D and all of that. But the one I’m currently working on is the fanfiction taking place in 2013 South Korea. Most of the details are real and what I dealt with in my past life, despite that I’m a minor character. I’m getting a few bunch of reads and encouragments. All thanks to you. Thank you for giving me my next talent, writing to entertain the readers. If you get this message, reply if you have the time and vise versa: giftiemaker207@gmail.com
Thanks a lot for everything. The next bestseller, E’Niah P.

The Fault in Our Stars’ I’ve read at least 2-3 times. I have some questions for you. Augustus died after falling in love with someone else does Hazel. Or dying after the death of Augustus Does Hazel. What happened to the mother of Annais going on. Hopefully you do not like Peter Van Houten. These lines because I’m Turks Google Translate ‘skin’m writing. Thanks to Google.:)

I read your book “The Fault In Our Stars” and it makes me stronger. I have some questions about what happened at Hazel ? I’m sure she dies but I’d like to here that. How her parents react of it ? And a lot of more questions.
I cried a lot during the book end, I thought of my grand-dad who died of a cancer…
Thank you so much to wrote this amazing book ! ;)

Dear John Green,
I understand that you probably won’t get this, and that even if you do, that you won’t have time to answer it. But I just thought I would give it a shot. I live in Indianapolis. Before I read your book, I didn’t really care. You made me realize that I am lucky to live where I do. (That’s not why it’s so meaningful to me, though.) Like you, I am a writer. My favorite things in life are reading and writing. I don’t think I could ever change lives the way you changed mine, but I hope that in the future, I publish a book that affects people’s thinking, at least. I was wondering if I could somehow meet you. I feel like I’m the only nerdfighter in Indianapolis who hasn’t met you. So is there any way I could go about doing this? It would mean so much to me to meet the person I look up to most.
Sincerely,
Shayna
PS: Do you by any chance know an author named Ben Winters? Just curious…

Hi John Green,
I’m one of your biggest fan!!! (seriously). At first, I thought that “The Fault In Our Stars” was a boring book to read, but when I’ve read it, I cried a lot (literally). Even my Mom was wondering why was I crying? When I finished it, I had these questions in my mind that really, really needs to be answered by the author which is you Mr. Green. So I’ve decided to ask you, and hopefully you would answer them as soon as possible, because I don’t know how long I could wait for the answers. Here are the questions:

1.) Did Hazel Die after she has read the letters of Augustus Waters, that were sent to Van Houten before he (Augustus) died? or she just lived because she survived?
2.)Are you gonna write a sequel for “The Fault in Our Stars”, that would explain what happened to everyone when Augustus Waters Died? especially to Hazel?

P.S. Hope you read this and message me right away…

Yours truly,
Joshua Sto. Domingo

Dear Mr. John Green,

I have read your book, “The Fault in Our Stars”, many times. I enjoy getting to know the characters. It was really cool how Augustus fought and fought cancer. He and Hazel, both, really showed strength and courage through out the entire book. As you got more into the book you got a bigger connections with the characters. I got such a deep connection with Augustus, that when he died, i cried. Each time, no matter how many times I read it, I always end up crying even though i already know whats going to happen in the end. I just have a couple questions that I would like to be answered.

1. What inspired you to write this book the way you did?
2. Why didnt you have Augustus tell Hazel that he had cancer all over?
3. Why did you have Augustus die in the end?

I do not expect answers to all of my questions, but i would be grateful for at least one.

Thank you for writing such an amazing book. Honestly, I have read this book more times than any other book I have. I hope you decide to continue writing more amazing books like “The Fault in Our Stars”. Once again thank you.

Sincerely,
Ami Soellers
