however, it did not live up to all the hype surrounding this story, perhaps the target audience was a younger one? (I'm 22 myself) I really, really, REALLY wanted to like this and hoped that something would change and I would fall in love with this book, but unfortunately, I did not. I also want to clarify it definitely was NOT the worst book I have ever read, it just didn't live up to my expectations.
Both of them were amazing, but yes, I would have to say the audiobooks was more enjoyable. The Kate Rudd brought the characters, specifically Hazel, to life.
Definitely the dialogue. Kate's different voices for the characters were beyond perfect. She really gave their own personality. Overlooking the movie, I could see visualize the character simply by the voices she gave them.
The blue-eyed man himself, Augustus Waters. In addition, to Isaac. Kate's voice really emphasizes how dreamy he is/was, as well as how charismatic. Augustus really knew how to move a person. Whether in pain or joy he simply permitted a person to be who they are/were.
Goodness, this is a hard question. There were so many moving moments, such as the Introduction of Peter Van Houten, Augustus Waters's Death, The Revelation that Hazel's Parents are/were Pre-coping with Hazel's Possible Death, etc... I simply cannot choose between all these heartwarming and some agonizing moments, so I would have to say the entire novel as a WHOLE moved me.
Absolutely none. Enjoyed every single minute.
This story had a depth of character that isn't matched by many books as of recently. When the book was turned off, I felt like I wanted to know what these characters were doing in their own lives. It was a captivating story and managed to put a comical spin on some very hard topics. Death is not funny, but this story made me laugh a few times. For the record, I cried 30x more than I laughed. The book is tough, but its so good.
Starting this book I knew the inevitability of the ending but that didn't stop me from being sucked in immediately. The narration was captivating and I couldn't wait for each stolen moment when I could navigate life through Hazel's eyes. I recommend this to anyone who is looking for a book that sucks them in from start to finish.
Picked this up during an Audible sale due to good reviews. Had no idea what it was about. Didn't realize it was a young adult book. Didn't realize it was a tearjerker. I still enjoyed it but did find the characters of Hazel and Augustus a little pretentious.
