"The Fault in Our Stars" is touching for so many reasons, and hits people across all ages.
I am perhaps not the target audience, being the father of teens, rather than a teen myself. Still, I found the story to be engaging and sympathetic. It didn't slide into false emotion or needless heart-tugging. The characters are going through painful experiences, and they do it like teens do, trying to live their lives.
All in all a good listen. I would listen to another book by John Green.
This was a delightful book to listen to despite the obvious seriousness of the topic. It was enlightening to look into the lives of those living with cancer. Highly recommend listening to or reading this book.
This is story telling at its best. It flows well and builds to a nice peak before rolling into a nice and unexpected conclusion. The narration was excellent and I will seek out more books by this reader which is not something I have done before.
It doesn't take away from the fact this can be a difficult subject to get through. Hard but nice to tap into those emotions.
