To start this review, I need to point out my obvious bias towards John Green. I love that man and I'd read his thoughts that he had on the toilet, if he ever wrote them down. that being saide, this is a very touching story that is not only a teen romance for young readers but a glimpse into the life of dying and death. Mr. Green captures the amazing balance between romance, pity for others, self-pity, trying to separate from parents as teenagers love to do, and a different look of the world. Kate Rudd also does a fantastic job with her performance of narrating this book. Her voice and Hazel Grace Lancaster's voice are perfect for one another. I'd recommend this book to all readers/listeners that want a touching story with well developed characters, hard to overcome plot, and a desire to live.
I love the book, it was great and the narrator did a great job and the story was brilliant and I absolutely love the book and the movie both individually but they are both amazing.

The story is, of course, amazing. Brutally honest, hauntingly sad, John Green is a master of the YA genre. But the narrator's performance pushes this production to perfection. Highest possible marks.
I love a good read, but this book was so much more. I enjoyed every second because the narrator depicted each scene so perfectly and the characters had become real people in my eyes. I recommend this audio book to everyone I come into contact with.
This is a masterpiece, it is not done justice by the movie in my opinion. Such literary merit. Such story telling. Such a roller coaster that only goes up. The speaker puts you in the mind of the narrator, very good oration. Recommend.
smart lesson determination.
hazel because even though she is dieing for cancer see still is nice to the people around her and she still moves on with her life when she fells like a grande.
when she goes out to eat.
This is my favorite book of all time. Never have I felt so connected to a book. Never has an author gotten me completely.
I don't have cancer, but I do have cerebral palsy. I understand what it's like to be "other". Thoughts of morality, finding love, and not wanting to be pitied are things I think of on a daily basis. I wish I was more like Hazel, but I'm definitely more like Augustus in regard to their views of the world.
Read this book, it will change you.

This book deserves the positive reviews, but it's not the best YA novel out there. Falls somewhere between Eleanor and Park (Bad) and Flat Out Love (Outstanding).
