Probably should not been listening to it as I maneuvered highway 1. Had to stop listening to wipe my eyes. Great love story and story of struggles of life. I love how Hazel is so concerned for parents after her death
As the mother of an asthmatic who has always struggled to breathe I feel that John Green has captured her struggles through Hazel's story. Thank you John Green for making people who have disease or struggles with medical illnesses not seem like such a weakling's making them strong the strong brave people they are who have feelings and that her whole and beautiful. I also work in the medical field and have watched many struggle through cancer and I feel that he has captured their struggles very beautifully in the story. I highly recommend this book. Also a beautiful performance by audiobooks.
I enjoyed so many aspects of this story that are difficult to explain without giving away the plot. Suffice it to say, I fell in love with both of the main characters and loved the experience of the world thru their eyes. At times, I was on a huge emotional roller coaster, and i applauded the author for drawing the reader in so completely. I also gained a much better appreciation of the life and realities faced by a young cancer patient, in a way that kept connected to the story rather than remaining apart from it. Finally, fantastic narration...it completed this audio book in an amazing fashion.
