I LOVE THIS BOOK! It's the best love story but, it's more about what actually happens in the world. Not like Cinderella how there always a happy ending and they both fall in love, this book is a million times better!
I loved that the plot was about more than just a girl and guy struggling with cancer. In fact, the cancer while a main conflict of the story really takes a backseat to their tackling of the existential questions that determine their placement in the bigger picture.
I loved all of the characters:
I loved Hazel for her need to push life away as a way of maintaining her distance from how unfair her fate is. I loved how she wanted to leave the smallest impact possible on the world around her to reduce the damage caused by her death.
I loved how Augustus wants to impact the world as much as possible through sacrifice. I loved how he saw Hazel for what she is and is in awe of her wish to leave as little impact as possible while still staying true to himself.
I loved how their support group is in the "literal heart of Jesus."
I loved that not everyone gets a happy ending.
I love how much my students enjoy reading it.
I love that she brings each character to life. She does voices, and I was able to take in the story and listen through my sobs. I also love that she did not feel the need to do a little girl voice for Hazel despite her age. I hate when narrators do that.
There is a film... It follows pretty closely.
I love this book as an adult. I recommend it to my students. I love that it is so much deeper than the majority of the books written for young adults.
I rarely listen to audio books, but being a stay at home and homeschool mother, being able to listen while I clean or wash dishes was wonderful.
The story was great. It was very well written and very well narrated. Looking forward to reading/listening to another by this author!
Im Allison! I''m new to Audible but loving every second of being here!
YES! This story is so deliciously agonizing yet, somehow incredibly able to draw you in! I loved it, and anyone who loves sarcasm and smart teenage love without the goo goo eyes and constantly sex will love it. It. Is Perfect!
She made each voice so distinct for each character. She made it so easy to understand which person was talking, and when the line was meant to be funny or sarcastic, she made it perfect.
When Gus would crack a joke, or Hazel made a sarcastic remark, I was literally rolling on the floor laughing. I did cry when Gus died.
This book is perfect. There is not one thing I would change about this audio. Beyond Incredible!
