I lost my preteen to osteosarcoma three years ago. It has taken a long time to get up the courage to read this story. I'm glad I did, although it brought back a lot of really sad memories.
i love this book it has so much meaning to it and i just love this book because it has so much heart in it this is just an amazing book and i hope alot of people like isaac can use audible to use books
First of all, Kate Rudd's performance of this reading is as good as any I have ever heard, perhaps the best that I have ever heard - practically perfect. Just listen to the sample and hear for yourself. She captures Hazel's tones - and even sighs and breaths - perfectly.
The story is romantic, witty, funny, charming, and captivating. My only warning to some readers would be, that if you believe in abstinence or chastity for teens, this book might rub you the wrong way.
Thought provoking, emotional, and funny! I had already seen the movie, so knew the general story, but loved the book way more. The reader was fantastic.
I loved every part of this story. I am a hopeful romantic and this surpassed my expectations in that area. This was not a depressing superficial cancer story. It was honest, funny, dramatic and incredibly witty. I also loved the way John intertwined another book into this one. I would recommend this to ever age, especially if you want to be moved to appreciate true love as well as each breath we take! Thank You, Jonn!
The narrator for this book was absolutely amazing. Every time she said "Hazel Grace" I felt like Augustus was talking. She did such a great job.
