On April 8, The Fault In Our Stars will be published in paperback with the movie tie-in cover. USAToday revealed the cover, which will look exactly like the TFIOS movie poster. The movie tie-in paperback is available for pre-order at Barnes & Noble, Target and other major retailers. The book will include a full-color insert of stills from the movie.
In the USAToday article, John Green also reacts to seeing TFIOS on the big screen, saying, "I loved it. It's a wonderfully faithful adaptation." He said Hazel and Gus (Shailene and Ansel) act exactly how he imagined while writing the book.
He says Woodley "sounds and acts just like Hazel does in my mind."John also said he can't explain why TFIOS is so popular.
Green says Elgort is "just so Gus."(...) "That's a hard role. Gus is very confident in many ways, but not entirely."
"If you had pitched the idea to me on a plane, I would have said, 'That sounds horrible.' It's a story about illness, but it's not hopeless. Maybe that's what people are responding to. And I think they like the love story. It feels real to them."Read the entire article here.
