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

    Last year I lost my daughter to cancer. For me, it was a big risk to listen to somebody's fictional account of what they think it might be like to go through that journey with your child. However, Fault In Our Stars was worth the leap of faith.

    The author provided a level of insight that brought my tears streaming back - in a positive way. Insights like "the last good day", and how it comes and goes without you knowing, and sitting beside a bed and whispering in your child's ear is exactly how it happened for my wife and I. It was great to have the author's turn of phrase and expression reinvigorate the memory of our time with our daughter.


    What other book might you compare The Fault in Our Stars to and why?

    None.


    Have you listened to any of Kate Rudd’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Don't make a film out of the book. The beauty of this book is the turn of phrase and the descriptions of the situation. Film dialogue could not do it justice.


    Any additional comments?

    The book is another way to grieve, but for me, it was more beneficial than the thousands of books that describe the practical actions of grieving in everyday life.
