    Nothing defines Mark Twain better than The Adventures of Tom Sawyer. The popularity of this classic continues to endure. Tom's antics and Twain's dialog need no description. And because of this colorful and sometimes controversial dialog, it is especially good and entertaining in an audiobook format. If you want to know what Mark Twain is all about, you just have to experience The Adventures of Tom Sawyer.

    This is by far the worst quality Audible book I've ever gotten. Very disappointing.

    Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel’s story is about to be completely rewritten. Insightful, bold, irreverent, and raw, The Fault in Our Stars is award-winning-author John Green’s most ambitious and heartbreaking work yet, brilliantly exploring the funny, thrilling, and tragic business of being alive and in love.

    Wow. I have rarely been so thoroughly involved in a book. I love Green's presentation of the characters and their wit (be prepared to laugh deeply). I appreciate the examination of taboo topics (like I'm going to ask a Hazel in my life whether she realizes her family has no extra money because of all they're spending just to keep her alive), and the insightfulness of the observations. Yes, it has sad parts, too, though not necessarily predicable ones. I cried. I cried a lot. But I didn't feel manipulated into crying. And I didn't end up depressed and hopeless.

    The narration is incredible. Rudd does an amazing job of giving just the right voice to the characters.

    I purchased this after listening to CDs from the public library and knowing I'd be listening again and again. I've purchased gift copies and recommended the book to many others. I always recommend the audio version because Rudd's performance is superb.

    If you haven't read The Fault in our Stars, you simply must. It's worth it!
