"I enjoy writing about people falling in love, probably because I think the first time you fall in love is the first time that you have to figure out how you're going to orient your life. What are you going to value? What's going to be most important to you? And I think that's really interesting to write about."

- Where he began to craft his first novel
Looking for Alaska
New York Times Bestselling Author
Heavily influenced from his school life at Kenyon and Indian Springs School.
The people that he met there and the settings of the two schools were two major keys to his novel.
He also uses other people's stories.
The initial idea came to him when he was working at the hospital, where he would spend time with patients.
This idea evolved even more as he heard about the stories they had to tell, which he captures in his writing.

“Green…has a writer’s voice, so self-assured and honest that one is startled to learn that this novel is his first. The anticipated favorable comparisons to Holden Caufield are richly deserved in this highly recommended addition to young adult literature.”
I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys reading realistic fiction with lots of humor. ;-D

My thought about John Green
He knows how to bring emotion to all of his stories. If you want to read stories that will make you cry, feel happiness, sadness and many other types of emotions, you can't go wrong with any book that has been written by Green.
