Veste buna: The Fault in Our Stars a intrat sub tutela directorului Josh Boone

Hollywoodreporter ne anunta ca Josh Boone (Stuck in love) a fost angajat ca director pentru adaptarea filmului TFIOS. Sursele spun ca directorul se potriveste perfect cu acest film dat find ca si el a trecut printr-o experienta asemanatoare si a gasit alinare in romanul lui John Green. Studioul incearca sa puna productia in miscare in vara acestui an.

„Cartea lui John Green a venit in viata mea atunci cand aveam cea mai mare nevoie de ea” , spune Boone. „M-a ajutat sa ma confrunt cu durerea. Am ras si am plans si am ramas cu un sentiment mare de speranta in suflet. Ca vietile noastre conteaza  , ca iubirea si bunatatea care o oferim celorlalti ramane mult timp dupa ce noi ii parasim.

Simt presiunea si responsabilitatea de a face totul bine si sa le ofer cititorilor si fanilor devotati cea mai pura translatie posibila. Speram sa cream o mica infinitate in filmul asta pe care fanii sa o viziteze incontinuu.”

John Green awesomeness


    “I wanted so badly to lie down next to her on the couch, to wrap my arms around her and sleep. Not fuck, like in those movies. Not even have sex. Just sleep together in the most innocent sense of the phrase. But I lacked the courage and she had a boyfriend and I was gawky and she was gorgeous and I was hopelessly boring and she was endlessly fascinating. So I walked back to my room and collapsed on the bottom bunk, thinking that if people were rain, I was drizzle and she was hurricane.”  – Looking for Alaska, John Green

Let it Snow by John Green, Maureen Johnson, Lauren Myracle

The New York Times bestseller!

Sparkling white snowdrifts, beautiful presents wrapped in ribbons, and multicolored lights glittering in the night through the falling snow. A Christmas Eve snowstorm transforms one small town into a romantic haven, the kind you see only in movies. Well, kinda. After all, a cold and wet hike from a stranded train through the middle of nowhere would not normally end with a delicious kiss from a charming stranger. And no one would think that a trip to the Waffle House through four feet of snow would lead to love with an old friend. Or that the way back to true love begins with a painfully early morning shift at Starbucks. Thanks to three of today’s bestselling teen authors—John Green, Maureen Johnson, and Lauren Myracle—the magic of the holidays shines on these hilarious and charming interconnected tales of love, romance, and breathtaking kisses.

Looking for Alaska de John Green

Titlu: Looking for Alaska

Autor: John Green

Gen: Young Adult

Anul aparitiei: 2006


Miles Halter is fascinated by famous last words and tired of his safe life at home. He leaves for boarding school to seek what the dying poet Francois Rabelais called the „Great Perhaps.” Much awaits Miles at Culver Creek, including Alaska Young. Clever, funny, screwed-up, and dead sexy, Alaska will pull Miles into her labyrinth and catapult him into the Great Perhaps.

How do you get out of the labyrinth of suffering?

Regret ca nu m-am apucat de „Looking for Alaska” imediat dupa ce am terminat „The Fault in Our Stars” pentru ca ador felul lui John Green de a scrie. Nu ma dezamagit chiar deloc. Miles aka Pudge este un tanar pasionat de „ultimele cuvinte” , fara prieteni dintr-un oras mic. Decide sa plece la internatul Culver Creek pentru a gasi „Marele Daca” si acolo da peste Alaska… fata rebela si neinteleasa care ii va da lumea peste cap.

Citind descrierea cartii te face sa crezi ca este doar un cliseu ca toate celelalte si ca nu te va atrage in mod special dar defapt e cu totul invers. Desigur nu te marcheaza atat de tare ca si TFIOS dar trateaza subiectele adolescentei care ne fac sa ne punem intrebari. Pudge , Alaska si prietenul lor Colonelul incearca de la alcool , la tigari si la farsele care se pun in joc cand stai in internat si ai o reputatie de mentinut ca boboc.

Cartea se mai invarte si in jurul „dragostei” lui Pudge pentru Alaska. Pudge , baietelul venit de acasa de la mamica care nu prea cunoaste lumea se indragosteste de enigmatica Alaska. I se deschide o lume noua pe care o accepta bucuros si nu pune prea multe intrebari nefiind obisnuit cu cantitatea de atentie care o primeste. Mi-a placut felul cum a descris-o Pudge pe Alaska, spunand ca”  daca oamenii ar fi ploaie , el ar fi burnita si ea furtuna”.

Povestea se invarte in jurul citatului de la inceputul recenziei strangand intr-o singura propozitie cam tot miezul cartii si toata fiinta care o reprezinta Alaska. Ca sa intelegeti ce vreau sa zic va trebui sa cititi cartea !

Nota mea:

The Fault in Our Stars – film ?

After switching his representation in Hollywood, author John Green has closed a deal with Fox 2000 for his new YA novel, The Fault in Our Stars. The deal comes shortly after Green moved from William Morris Endeavor to United Talent Agency for his film representation. It also comes on the heels of the publication of his new book, which Green promoted, over the summer, by announcing he would sign every first edition in the hefty 150,000-copy initial printing from Dutton.

The book, about a 16-year-old girl whose life is pleasantly upended when she falls for a boy who joins her cancer support group, was optioned for producer Wyck Godfrey by Fox 2000, the 20th Century Fox division run by Elizabeth Gabler. Godfrey’s company Temple Hill has worked on a number of high profile children’s book-to-film productions including the Twilight saga (with Summit Entertainment) and Eragon. Gabler is overseeing the project along with Fox 2000 v-p of production, Erin Siminoff.

Fault, which came out on January 10, hit #1 on the New York Times bestseller list on January 29, and Green is currently on a 17-city tour promoting the book. (Publishers Weekly)
