A Letter to an Author

Mr John Green
Author of a " Best seller"
'the fault in our stars'

dear sir,
i have finished reading your 'best seller ' and i feel absolutely disgusted. i really wonder how a pathetic book like this can be considered a ' best seller'.
we ordinary mortals have ' fear'. we live with fear.fear of rising, fear of falling,fear of hating , fear of being hated. in fact ' the side effect' of living is fear.a child fears the darkness, a grown up fears loss.a nation fears defeat and disaster. BUT WE ALL FEAR DEATH. there are innumerable stories , poems ,dramas, movies etc on the theme of ' death'.
We mortals suffer from ' fear psychosis' and in our society some 'creative' people  THRIVE on this human misery.death is inevitable. it is absurd but it is the ultimate truth.
but when novelist writes novels with only one motive ,which is to make huge quick money over this phenomenon called fear psychosis, i consider it as abominable.many people after reading your novel would let go a sigh of relief ' ahh, i am alright jack'. but have you ever thought about the excruciating pain the families and friends undergo after their dear ones leave them dying of any form of 'terminal illness'. tell me mr. green is there any illness in this beautiful world which is 'not' terminal?
creating fear psychosis has many advantages. your kind of writers make the whole medical world richer and wealthier in addition of you becoming a prize winning author in rather obscene way.
