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. John Green,

Let me start by saying thank you. The Fault In Our Stars is my all time favorite book. Within a number of pages you gave me an infinity. I say quotes from this book all the time. No one gets it and I tell them to read this book. I know this is a lot to ask but I would like to know if you are planning on writing a sequel to tfios? Me and my best friend would be interested if you wrote a sequel to this book about Hazel and her life after Augustus dies. I know this is a lot to ask. But it would be amazing if this happend. Also if you don’t like this idea I would also appreciate if you took into consideration if writing another sequel to tfios. If it could be from Augustus’so point of view, I would also enjoy reading that. Thank you so much for reading this message. I hope you take this into consideration. Thank you so much for reading this.

Sincerely,
Autumn

Dear John Green,
I have obsessed and drooled over each and everyone of your books. I have been trying to write a book for the past four years (the same one). I keep getting nervous and trying to rewrite entire chapters and at this point I have realized that when my computer shut down somehow I lost the first 14 chapters that I had written. It’s not that big of a deal considering I kept erasing huge pieces of it anyway after a teacher told me last year that you have to “kill your darlings”. I haven’t got a clue as to how to just keep going. Do you have any advice?
On different note, I totally love your books. After having to read An Abundance Of Katherines for school I went to a crazy anagram faze even though I still have about 100 memorized. So here is one for you (even though I know you said that you are not some anagram genius) Look So To Test A Novelist. ILove thi

Dear John GREEN;
                My name is Kubra AKÇA. 13 years old. I’m calling you from Izmir, Turkey. GRACE Hazel as I am not a cancer patient or like Augustus WATERS not have a boyfriend. No one wishes for it about. Umaru Peter Van Houten’s first readers’ letters such as a bag in a corner koymuyo you are looking to fill. Under the same star movie of your book came out on June 27. I will go tomorrow, but the film out to him because I did not okumamazlık book. Because the books and movies are very different. Booking people in their own character, their own homes, their own clothes, design their own rooms, or so it thinks. But in the movies, you see the director’s room, clothes, characters, you will see the house. Beginning of the book to readers of this book is the product of a dream’ve also. So we’ve read your dreams. And I do not regret it. But I think I left half of your dream. So the same as in the majestic agony. GRACE Hazel Hani Peter Van Houten had asked from the book and answer questions to complete at a time that had no wait or want to ask a few questions here I like him. For example Issac what happened?, Hazel GRACE one again fell in love with me?, Peter Van Houten, what happened?, Hazel GRACE in love with someone if it Augustus Waters family response, what happened? Robot eyes out? I know this book where you completed your dream and your dream in the book does not answer these questions. But if you do not get an answer from you I çıldırıca. Already sobbing cried while reading your book. Please I beg you book your dream, not as much for you, albeit in a ridiculous manner, please complete your book if you do not do this will never leave my mind. Because I’m always the last düşünüceg the possibility of any kind of finish. And I’m always gonna be a tearful face. Please complete the end of the book I’m begging you …

Hello Mr Green,
You’re an inspiration to mankind, thank you and your marvellously original mind and mentality. Did that get you hooked ? I hope so. I’ve recently read your best-seller and have many inquiries about it, but we’ll get to that, where are my manners ? My name is Augustus Mylo Jake Stovold, I’m british, but I live in France. I’m a huge fan of The Fault In Our Stars. I’m 14, and I have no major things that are wrong with my life, I’m normal, and that makes me abnormal, does it not? I also realise that you probably have thousands of questionnaires like this every day, so somehow, I need to make mine stick out. I came here with a purpose. And I sincerely hope that you find the time to give this a read, as I have found the time to write it, I also hope that you did not write the famous Peter Van Houten based on yourself.

The first is a simple yet meaningful query: Does Hazel Grace die before 20 ?, the second is slightly more personal, is the way Van Houten writes and expresses his feelings through a pen and paper; based around you and your way of doing said things? And is the bad in him a fictional form of the bad in you ? I hope that I’m not being too bold, it’s just that my curiosity is like a cancer cell, it will breed and develop until I find a way to stump it’s growth, and it never truly departs. The third question is about Isaac, I read up on his type of cancer, and it’s hereditary, does Graham get it too ? And do he and Monica ever get back together or do he and Hazel “get it on”, so to speak?

I realise that you most likely won’t read this, but a man can dream, can he not? I also realise that there is a situation where you may not know what happens to Hazel and Isaac that is highly likely, and if that is so, I would rather like to know. Thank you for your time,

Gus.

P.S: I will be posting this once a day for the next month, just to be persistent and annoying
