I do not give plot spoilers.
No to first question.
No. I was happy to listen to it over several days.
Stupid questions, Audible. Just let me review a good book in my own words.
I would absolutely listen to it again, and watch the movie as well. Oh my god how I am going to miss these characters. I started listening to the book and was instantly drawn into the story.
Most memorable was the ending (and I am not going to spoil it) but this was a powerful moment that brought tears to my eyes.
It was narrated in a way that the voice gave every character a distinct nuance that was refreshing and really brought the characters to life.
Yes, yes, and yes! I wanted to listen to this book and was looking forward to the moment I was able to pick it back up after I had to put it down. It allowed me to dive into a special story of true love that one often doesn't find in real life.
This story is fictional, however, many emotions were so familiar to me and this is why this book made it so special. Loosing someone you love is the hardest things, and this story managed to beautifully tie love, loss, and infinity together.
It made me dive in the deep feelings of the story
It is one of the best novels I have enjoyed. I watched the movie because I loved the book. The story made me appreciate the people I care about around me more. I will definitely listen to it again and watch the movie again.
I would definitely listen to this story again, once I've recovered emotionally. The narrator does a wonderful job and keeps your attention throughout the story.
This is actually the first YA novel I read. It's definitely a tear-jerker, and very emotionally charged, especially because it is so believable and the characters are portrayed in such a way that they become real to the reader.
"I must see this swing set of tears"
The eulogy scene was especially moving. That's the one that really got the tears rolling.
The author does such a wonderful job capturing the perspective of a teenage girl, and so many of the poignant comments and observations about being a cancer patient really show how much time the author spent researching the topic in order to understand it at a deep lever. The characters are developed beautifully, making them very real. The fact that you feel you are reading about real people makes the story all the more touching, compelling, and heartbreaking.
Yes, not right away, it is the type of story you want to think about first, before you listen to it again.
The climax of the sickness, although it was predicted, it still surprised and depressed me
Never heard her speak before.
It made me laugh and cry. Many times in the same sentence!
This is a wonderful story, whether you have been affected by a terminal sickness or not, you will like this book.
Really can be cruel and the protagonist's in The Fault in our Stars illuminate why this is true.
As an oncology nurse who has worked with adolescence I found it interesting to get into the head of these two teens. Cancer sucks. Having cancer as a teenager when life is already topsy turvy and struggles between childhood and adulthood get hashed out is just plainly not fair. The challenges of living with a cancer diagnosis as a teenager is portrayed in earnest by the writer. It all just sucks.
I read this book before it was widely widely talked about and now that everyone is acquainted I find myself in the minority of those who just didn't love it, sorry but I didn't. If you haven't read it though don't let my review preclude your decision go on, try it for yourself.
I've read TFIOS a few times. I've also seen the movie twice. The best way to consume this story is the audiobook. It's. So. Good. The narrator is incredible and she perfectly tells this story. Seriously, this audiobook is perfection.
The narrator performs every role perfectly, but especially that of Hazel Grace.
I laughed out loud. I sobbed out loud.
Simply the best. I love it!!
I'm not usually a fan of young adult fiction, but this story garnered so much attention I couldn't help but check it out. I was not disappointed. The story is sometimes cute and at others, sad. I grew to know each character and care about their futures and wonder about the subconscious meanings behind their words and actions, which is always a sign of a well written story.
Kate Rudd delivered an absolutely flawless performance. I'm afraid to say that I've been severely irked in the past about how female narrators tend to lower their tone in almost ridiculous fashion to imitate a man's voice for their speaking parts, and it usually comes across as mocking. She did not. With an altered inflection to his voice, she clearly identified Augustus and it sounded completely natural. The emotion she portrayed at various points captured the mood perfectly. While browsing for audiobooks, I may certainly try a few out simply based on her being the narrator.
Yes, it's a sweet story, just not much depth.
Ending was the best part.
Narrator was good, got all characters very nicely.
This is a very sweet story, I may even listen again. Just not the deep complied stories I normally like.
