The Fault in Our Stars reminds me of...

Okay, first off, I loved The Fault in Our Stars. But! Ever since I read it, I've been feeling major deja-vu; specifically, the plot involving a passionate reader meeting their favorite writer, and finding out that he's not who they imagined.

I keep feeling like I've read a different book with that plot. Or...saw a movie with that plot? *could* be a play, but I doubt it.

I really don't remember anything else about this other book, except that I *think* the protagonist who meets their favorite author is a teenager in this book as well. Usually I'm able to Google-fu this kind of thing, but I'm kinda stuck here.

So! If you know of a book or a movie where a reader meets their favorite author and he's kind of a jerk (or maybe just off-putting?) that's *not* The Fault in Our Stars, what is it?

Bonus question: Did you like The Fault in Our Stars? What was your favorite part?

DFTBA!

I really liked the book, it had a nice vibe even among the sad undertones.

That plot sort of seemed familiar, but since I couldn't figure it out I just put the thought aside. That book gave me major feels :(

isnt that the short n sweet novel by John Green? I never really found any closure with the ending. Did she die?live? who knows. Loved it to death though. All of John Greens works are so solid!

It is; I absolutely loved TFiOS. Mixed feelings about his other work, I really loved Looking for Alaska too.

Nvm, I found the Tv Tropes entry for the plot idea: [link]

This film has a very familiar plot. It isn't just a writer. It's about meeting a hero\idol and finding out they aren't what we thought they'd be. So.. there are a lot of films like that.

Right, but the one I'm thinking of is definitely also about a writer. I know there are other stories like that, but I can't think of what they are specifically. Like, titles.

Weeee~ I loved The Fault in Our Stars!!!
I remember in English class, when I was reading it and I was suddenly like "NOOOOOOO HOW COULD HE DIE!!!!???????" kind of embarrassing.....

It sucks, how my favourite characters always dies. Although I suppose I was kind of expecting a death anyway. I only wish it was Patrick, so he would stop complaining about his ball-less-ness.

Haha! Out loud? That's a riot :D

I definitely made sure to read it alone just so I could cry all the tears by myself. I have to read it again, I think.
