This was a great book, it really drew you into the story personally
I love how the Author portrayed the feeling of each characher and how the narrator accted upon different tones. I love the story from beggining to end. Makes me want to read "An Imperial Affliction" if that book did exist, but it doesn't.
the manner in which she changed her tone and excitement brought a new meaning than me just reading it to myself.
"Ok" can mean something more deeper than you ever thought possible"
My complaint is with the "voice" and it is two-fold. First, the dialogue would sound more realistic from 40 year old characters than teenagers. The narrator nails obnoxious pretentiousness.
I am going to try to read the book in the hope I can scrub the narrator's voice from my mind. Maybe August and Hazel won't sound so annoying in my own mind.
Less self-important condescension from August. Less whinyness from Hazel.
Disappointment and irritation.
I've never disliked a narration as much as this one.
"An Abundance of Katherines" by John Green had some of the best teen dialogue I've ever read and the story was interesting and fresh, so yes, I'd read more by John Green.
It was very well written, wonderfully performed and excellent in every way, except it was depressing. Dying teenagers finding love and adventure might be uplifting for some people, but I was just depressed by the story material itself.
The tour of Ann Frank's house.
I'm sure it could be made into a movie, but I have no idea who would star in it.
Beautiful, deep, stunning.
I don't think I've read enough books in this genre to even consider comparing it.
Her narration was absolutely amazing. She added tone, depth, and pacing that I would not have appreciated as much if I'd read the book on paper.
I have no idea. I wonder what they're using! It would easily be something Augustus says, I would think.
The mixture of light-heartedness and utter sadness in this book is such a beautiful combination. Hands down, one of the best books I've ever read.
My three words would be lovely, intelligent, deep
One of the most memorable moments of Fault in Our Stars was the moment when Hazel rewrote the diagram Augustus drew about guys with one leg losing their virginity.
I can't choose one character as a favorite, mostly because they are so much a like. Therefore my favorite characters are Augustus and Hazel.
This book made me just want drop everything I had to do and just listen to this book. I listen to about 4 hours of it the first night. It is definitely a book I wanted to listen to all at once.
Kate Rudd definitely read A Fault in Our Stars beautifully, as it was intelligently written.
Thoroughly enjoyed the story despite the fact that it's aimed more at the teenage audience. It's "terminally" engaging, witty and confronting. The C subject maybe a tabu to some, but it is well worth the emotional roller coaster. We all want to be loved and have loved no matter what.
Highly recommend it!
I'm a journalist, columnist and slave to a great tale, well told.
The characters and their relationships are compelling—familiar but better than real life. Smarter. Braver. I listened to this book myself, then listened again with my family immediately after, on a road trip -- and was happy to do so. I can't say I've ever done that with another book. Narrator was terrific.
The romantic dinner in Amsterdam. The kiss. The eulogy rehearsal.
Hilarious. Tragic. Inspirational.
This book made me laugh and cry. The witty humor and fast talk combined with an upbeat attitude in the face of certain tragedy is what made the book so amazing to me. The teenage sarcasm is spot on and gives the book an air of reality. Kate Rudd really nails it. The voice and attitude she gives the characters really brings them to life. Each character is unique and different, but without trying to hard. I would listen to more of her books anytime.
I have not read it.
I don't really think I would compare it to any.
No but I would listen as she gave an excellent performance!
Yes this was a can't stop listening long into the night kind of book, I loved it, I recommend it to friends!
I had high expectations for this book because so many raved about it. It was good but not great in my opinion.
