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.
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.
