I couldnt wait to get to the end to find out what happens. I didn't want to get to the end to find out what happens. It is now a part of my heart, and I'm 57 years young.
A must read!
Can't pick just one part.
I loved them all.
"I find it difficult to believe that in the absence of broccoli, chocolate would taste any less sweet."
Beautiful story, beautifully written and beautifully narrated!
Incredible. Emotional. Beautiful.
This was my first audiobook, and I'm happy that I chose this one to be my first. The book was incredible, and I will surely listen again in the months to come.
New to audible and HOOKED! I can't believe I have waited this long to start.
I enjoyed the book and now of course I'm hooked to audibles ... Quick listen but a beautiful story recommended
Beautiful embodiment of the emotional reality of life. Invites you into to a world of existential questions and the journey towards understanding purpose, innocent suffering, chronic afflictions and the life we leave behind while maintaining a light of hope and truth that guides you through this world of uncertainty grasping at resolution.
I LOVE THIS BOOK! It's the best love story but, it's more about what actually happens in the world. Not like Cinderella how there always a happy ending and they both fall in love, this book is a million times better!
I loved that the plot was about more than just a girl and guy struggling with cancer. In fact, the cancer while a main conflict of the story really takes a backseat to their tackling of the existential questions that determine their placement in the bigger picture.
I loved all of the characters:
I loved Hazel for her need to push life away as a way of maintaining her distance from how unfair her fate is. I loved how she wanted to leave the smallest impact possible on the world around her to reduce the damage caused by her death.
I loved how Augustus wants to impact the world as much as possible through sacrifice. I loved how he saw Hazel for what she is and is in awe of her wish to leave as little impact as possible while still staying true to himself.
I loved how their support group is in the "literal heart of Jesus."
I loved that not everyone gets a happy ending.
I love how much my students enjoy reading it.
I love that she brings each character to life. She does voices, and I was able to take in the story and listen through my sobs. I also love that she did not feel the need to do a little girl voice for Hazel despite her age. I hate when narrators do that.
There is a film... It follows pretty closely.
I love this book as an adult. I recommend it to my students. I love that it is so much deeper than the majority of the books written for young adults.
