    The year is 1911. In Cold Spring Harbour, New York, the newly formed Eugenics Records Office is sending its agents to catalogue the infirm, the insane, and the criminal - with an eye to a cull, for the betterment of all. Near Cracked Wheel, Montana, a terrible illness leaves Jason Thistledown an orphan, stranded in his dead mother's cabin until the spring thaw shows him the true meaning of devastation - and the barest thread of hope.

    Any additional comments?

    Terrible....slow....muddled.....confusing. The description is totally misleading. This is a horror story completely lacking any sci fi or social issue elements. I couldn't finish it.

    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.

    "Another great YA book from John Green."

    What made the experience of listening to The Fault in Our Stars the most enjoyable?

    This book is heart wrenching without being maudlin. It has lots of humor and the characters ring true. Unlike most characters with a terminal illness, these characters are busy living not dying. I am a high school librarian and I will be adding this to the collection ASAP.
