You are completely right. I think of the same thing while reading books from different authors. John Green is adamant in influencing the reader's mind with his intelligence (from his writing). I don't know if that makes as much sense for you as it does for me but what I'm saying can be expressed by an example. In The Fault In Our Stars, I think what he wants most is to inform his readers about cancer (not just the types of cancers that he mentions, but all). In Looking For Alaska, he informs his readers that death does not come to those who are 'entitled' to it or who is enevitable to die, but to everyone. In Abundance Of Katherines, he informs his readers that there are more to the lives of nerds (such like himself and all other uniquely intelligent people). Suzanne Collins is entirely different I believe. Her writings revolve around the ability of people. You don't have to prove that you are as atronf as you are or as smart as you are as long as you hold those abilities.

I think that what makes The Fault In Our Stars so great is John Green's ability to see life differently than most. Rather than going with the flow, he tends to dig deeper. John seems to question; he seems to wonder. We can't separate the story from the author, for the story is part of the author. If we were to tell Suzanne Collins to write a book with the same concept of The Fault In our Stars, it would be an absolute different story. Because Suzanne Collins and John Green are both unique, and have different perspectives on many things. Suzanne Collins is no doubt a wonderful author in my opinion, as is John Green. However, they are wonderful for their own unique reasons. Just something that's been on my mind lately what with the whole obsession with The Fault In Our Stars. I just think there's more to the story than many people see. Same with when the music I listen to (Indie Rock/Alternative) becomes popular. Pompeii by Bastille, for example. And just to ensure my intent of this post, I do not mean to offend anyone in any way, shape or form. I simply just wanted to post my thoughts. No offense intended. I just figured, "why not?"
