The comedic witty writing prose of the main charachter
I felt a plethora of emotions that span the spectrum
worth learning about the illness from a teens perspective. Has opened my eyes and heart to the challenges of the person afflicted with such diagnosis as well as the family members sometimes the lost s(heroes)
one of the best books i have ever read
I liked when hazel said "some infinities are bigger than others" this is my favorite part
Yes, although I have not read the print version I really enjoyed the audio book
I liked the wit of the main character.
Brought the characters to life
When the main character got into a fight with her mother
The characters' ability to separate themselves from their illnesses.
Augustus Waters. The tone and inflection she used was beautifully orchestrated.
When Augustus and Isaac get even with Monica
This is one of the most beautifully written books I've ever read. John Green is amazing.

I might listen to it again some time, I guess because the characters seemed nice enough and it was a cathartic experience to listen to it the first time.
I thought the most interesting parts were about the main characters. I guess something some of the parts involving the author were sort of broadly drawn.
I got this around the same time I got EAT PRAY LOVE, and I got both of them because I thought it would be funny to read them. This one was actually pretty effective.
The characters and the narrator. Very believable and sadly realistic.
When Hazel finds out her Mom is going to be a social worker.
I've not listened to Kate before. I believe she was excellent in this listen.
Laugh and cry. It is so awful to know cancer exists and is so widespread, but to have it happen to these young people just hurts. Stoic Hazel and lovely Augustus.
I didn't read the print version, but as sometimes happens I am glad I listened instead. The reader, Kate Rudd, could not have been more perfectly chosen.
Although a "tween" book technically, I would recommend this to anyone. It brings out the irreverent side of managing terminal illness, which does exist. I felt light hearted, hopeful, and optimistic despite the knowledge that this was serious, sad, heart rending business.
Not necessarily, either way it's a wonderful, feeling story. As a listener I give it high marks.
Narrator just right. Give it a try.
If I Stay. Another story so believable as balanced with reality. Well written, well performed.
Getting into the head of a teenager is not easy. She can take you back to high school.
Her voice has empathy and hope.
Trust me ok?
Excellent, realistic lovestory
If I told that it would give away the book! Well at least to those who haven't seen the movie!
She makes you feel what each character is about.
I definitely recommend this book and I would read it before seeing the movie for sure!
I couldnt say it was better then print version but it was well read.
