Here we have a love story where everyone who is under the age of 20 has cancer and is dying. A bit grim, with the full petulance associated with being a teen.
I found the writing excellent as well as the performance, but the topic was so grim that it overshadows everything else.
I will look for other works by John Green as he seems to be an excellent writer, and perhaps another subject will be more enjoyable
John Green truly captures the teenage mind while carefully including sensitive insight into living with disabilities and illness.
For older teens! I've been disappointed at the number of young teens and even tweens that are being allowed to read this. Great book, just not quite appropriate for the younger crowd.
Yes. Its a great book about unusual love
When Gus and Hazel meet each other.
Idk. Cause its already a movie.
Most definitely yes.
John Green does a fantastic job of bringing these characters to life - I cried, felt my heartstrings pulled and laughed. My favourite part of this was the dialogue between the Hazel and Gus – it was so geeky and funny.
Kate Rudd is an excellent narrator and really enhanced my experience of this wonderful book.
I love to read. I enjoy Jane Austen, and more.
This is a great book, even when it starts it can be a little crude with the cussing. The overall story outweighs that.True love prevails, and even if you do not live for 90 years, life can still be full if you have love.
This was a book that was recommended to me by a friend. I read the description, I was not at that interested at the time. I added it to my favorites any way. I kept hearing how great this book was so finally I used a credit to get the book knowing in the back of the mind if it ends of being unbearable I can always return it. Well, in the end I spent an entire Sunday listening to this book. I had to stop it a few times to take care of a few things but if it would not have been for these interruptions I would have completed it all in "one sitting."
I am waiting patiently for the best book on earth!!
I loved the book was written from a girl's point of view. Hazel is not your average girl dealing with something that is not the average teenage girl problems!
Listening to the book is my preference as I age.
I like that it is written for the young person but a grandmother of 71 can share the experience with her 12 year old granddaughter.
Ms. Rudd's performance draws the listener into the story as an intimate observer.
I liked the period in Amsterdam and the walk through the Anne Frank house.
I downloaded this book because of all the hype surrounding the book/movie. I was not disappointed. Even though this is a YA novel it is very well-written, funny, and emotional. The performance was wonderful and I was sucked into her reading of the novel.
I loved listening to the story; I didn't try to read the print version. I love having the vocal personality present.
The plot kept me married to the listen.
The characters were so real to me -- great job Kate!
I listened to it all in one day; couldn't put it down!
I can go see the movie now.... I've read the book.
