The book is sooo much better than the movie! But then, don' we always say that?? Narration is great and story is wonderful. What more can I say?
I had heard this was a sad story, and wasn't especially eager to listen to it, but friends told me I'd enjoy it, and boy, were they right! I normally read/listen to mysteries, thrillers, police procedurals, etc. but I was looking for something where there were no murders, something not so formulaic, and decided on this. Great decision. Absolutely one of the best books I've listened to.
Kate Rudd's voice will always be the voice of Hazel for me. I would have thought she was a teenager, herself, so perfect was her narration. I've found myself tempted to play the Audible story for my friends who have only read the book, or even for those who have not read the book, knowing they would be intrigued and tempted to order the audiobook. Kate's voice and reading added so much to this story.
I'm not a crier, but tears rolled down my face as I read. Still, I enjoyed this book immensely. The author is a master of the English language, and I truly enjoyed this intelligently written book. Frankly, it's extremely hard to believe he is a man and not a teenage girl, so perfectly did he write Hazel's character.
oh I'm torn. I love the story so much. the way it was written, the plot, the everything. but it breaks my heart to know that this is life for some in this world. gives you a heavy dose of reality for ones plagued with such a heavy burden-cancer.
Love everything about it
First time listening to a book The performance is so awesome and mentioning of places and situations it's like watching a movie but everywhere like in your car while you are walking while you are doing a grocery shopping even
