The story is beautiful. Loving someone with any kind of illness is difficult, but you learn to see beauty in the life we have, the world that surrounds us, and the things we do have.
The reader was quiet pleasant to listen to.
British ex-pat living in NC. Have more personalities than Sybil which is reflected in my choice of books! Frustrated writer at heart.
I listened to this book out of pure curiosity. I had no idea that it was written for teens. I loved it. It was pure escapism with it's picture imagery and the narrator's excellent performance.
Have to admit that I cried my eyes out at certain parts. I rarely read fiction and often enjoy much heavier subjects. However I plan to read another John Green novel very soon. I feel that he may be changing this woman's reading habits!
I had my doubts about this book, especially when I learned the main characters had cancer. As this is a subject too close to my heart I thought "not another cancer story". Needless to say as the story progressed I became attached to Hazel and couldn't wait to hear what she was going to say next. the emotions were all over but strangely comforting. Ms. Rudd did a fantastic job of narration. I would highly recommend this audio book.
An eye opener for sure. Especially if you have yet to indulge in the great mysteries in life such as, what happens when you die, how much your life matters, and a great overall lesson that life can be great and amazing but in the end no matter what you do your life WILL end and when it does, you another person has succumb to death and you will no longer exist.
i love this book. it's so heart felt. still makes me cry when i read it. this book makes my look differently at life. a truly amazing book and one of my favorites read it in a couple of hours.
I loved this book because it delivered with the humor and tears. I mean my literal heart ached for the characters. Truly lovely to read John Green's work.
