    Story

    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
    What did you love best about The Fault in Our Stars?

    The story grasped my attention from the very beginning. I laughed and cried with heroes. May be it's not something you want to do on your way to work so bewared.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Fault in Our Stars?

    I don't want to give any spoilers but there are so many moments in the book that I want to go over and over again. I am definitely getting a hard copy of the book.


    What does Kate Rudd bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Kate's performance was naturally interweaved with the story. It was a pleasure to listen to the book while she was narrating it.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    This one one of the books that you don't want to stop listening. I usually listen when drive to work. I had to finish the last chapters while I was at home instead of prolonging them for another few days.


    Any additional comments?

    I wish there was a different end for Hazel and Gus but "the world is not a grant-wishing factory"

    Story
    (10335)

    Based on more than 40 interviews with Jobs conducted over two years—as well as interviews with more than a hundred family members, friends, adversaries, competitors, and colleagues—Walter Isaacson has written a riveting story of the roller-coaster life and searingly intense personality of a creative entrepreneur whose passion for perfection and ferocious drive revolutionized six industries: personal computers, animated movies, music, phones, tablet computing, and digital publishing.

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Steve Jobs to be better than the print version?

    I haven't read the print version. If I have time I would probably prefer to read it rather than to listen. But I was enjoying listening to it on my to/from work.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I am glad that although it's Steve Job's biography, the book also talks about many people who met Jobs at different stages of his life.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    No favorite scenes - all the parts are quite good.


    Any additional comments?

    Great book. It's not just about Steve Jobs but also about the time and place, and people that he grew up and lived with.
