I used to visit my grandpa every summer for two weeks to help out on the ranch and enjoy nature. He owned 32 acres and raised cattle. During the day we tended to the animals and swam in a lake that he paid to have dug. At night we roasted marshmallows. There were two beautiful collies he kept around who I adored. My Grandpa was a heavy smoker unfortunately. When I turned 14 he was hospitalized with lung cancer. I was by his side when he passed as was my mom. She begged me never to smoke and I promised I wouldn't. Seven years later I still haven't smoked.
I kind of regret it though since this terrible story gave me cancer anyway.
Every line of dialogue was either the words of a bitchy and pretentious.teenage girl or sounded like an old man trying to be "hip" and appeal to a generation he doesn't understand. Many lines that did not need repeating were repeated over and over. It was two steps above a bad erotica and three steps below a high school essay.
Unless you are a teenage girl who loves crappy books that give you an unrealistic expectation of romance, you should take LSF before reading or listening to this book.
The narrator was not bad. Credit where credit is due.
I fell in love with all of the characters. I felt like I was along for all of the good, the bad, the growth, the lessons, the love, the laughter, the tears, as well as the heartbreak. Well done.
So excited that on my long drive /work/home I can listen to books and have some "me" time!!
I loved the entire story. Never lost me though out the book. Made cry more when August told Hazel Grace about his MRI. I was like "Oh, nooo!!" I started crying and my husband wondered what was wrong.
Kate was great with all the characters. Changing from female to male and the accents was really cool. Her was great and not annoying at all.
such an emotional roller coaster with wonderful visual imagery and intelligent precocious characters, so unfortunate that life is not a wish granting factory :)
I loved this novel, John green has such an effortless style of provoking heart ache, pain and humour all at once and making you feel safe within each infinities to connect with the characters and story.
If you're looking for something to listen to that will make you cry and smile and renew your hope, this book is for you. It is so delicately written that you get lost within the disease maze and trapped within the love story of these two star crossed lovers.
It's been One year I Saw the Movie. Since then the Dialogues came into my Thoughts Each and Every Moment. And Now I Listened to the Audio Book. The Movie is Superb BUT after Listening the Book I came to conclusion that The book is much more AWESOME than the Movie. Audio Narration is so Good that it Mingled me with the Situation.
