    Khaled Hosseini, the number-one New York Times best-selling author of The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns, has written a new novel about how we love, how we take care of one another, and how the choices we make resonate through generations.

    Story

    The chapters in this book each tell a very compelling story. I loved the content, but the naration was labored and hard to listen to, and detracted from the enjoyment for me.

    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.

    Story

    I have never written a review before, but if I feel obligated to try encourage everyone to listen to this story! I knew nothing about this book, but bought it based on the reviews, with which I wholeheartedly agree, and for which I am thankful!
    While this is a story about teenagers, the themes (confronting our own mortality) could not be more profound or universal. The story and characters bring this struggle to life, and give context and form to things we all wonder about at some point. The subject matter is addressed with courage and in a straightforward way, without giving trite, pre-canned or meaningless answers.
    I loved the characters, and the narration is perfect in giving them voice and bringing the story to life. This story will stay with me long after the end of the audio, and I’m sure that it is one I will want to return to again.
