Audie Award Nominee, Best Teens Category, 2013
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.

"An electric portrait of young people who learn to live life with one foot in the grave. Filled with staccato bursts of humor and tragedy, The Fault in Our Stars takes a spin on universal themes - Will I be loved? Will I be remembered? Will I leave a mark on this world? - by dramatically raising the stakes for the characters who are asking." (Jodi Picoult, best-selling author of My Sister’s Keeper and Sing You Home)
"It's a testament to John Green's writing and Kate Rudd's narration that, in a book about teenagers with cancer, there are still plenty of laugh-out-loud moments. Green's teens are precocious and clever, and Rudd sells it, delivering every 'or whatever' with perfect teenage inflection and fully inhabiting protagonist Hazel as she navigates the world with lungs ravaged by cancer. When Hazel has trouble breathing, we hear it in the way Rudd gasps and pants between words. It's a sad, funny, smart, beautiful book." (AudioFile)
My three words would be lovely, intelligent, deep
One of the most memorable moments of Fault in Our Stars was the moment when Hazel rewrote the diagram Augustus drew about guys with one leg losing their virginity.
I can't choose one character as a favorite, mostly because they are so much a like. Therefore my favorite characters are Augustus and Hazel.
This book made me just want drop everything I had to do and just listen to this book. I listen to about 4 hours of it the first night. It is definitely a book I wanted to listen to all at once.
Kate Rudd definitely read A Fault in Our Stars beautifully, as it was intelligently written.
Thoroughly enjoyed the story despite the fact that it's aimed more at the teenage audience. It's "terminally" engaging, witty and confronting. The C subject maybe a tabu to some, but it is well worth the emotional roller coaster. We all want to be loved and have loved no matter what.
Highly recommend it!
I'm a journalist, columnist and slave to a great tale, well told.
The characters and their relationships are compelling—familiar but better than real life. Smarter. Braver. I listened to this book myself, then listened again with my family immediately after, on a road trip -- and was happy to do so. I can't say I've ever done that with another book. Narrator was terrific.
The romantic dinner in Amsterdam. The kiss. The eulogy rehearsal.
Hilarious. Tragic. Inspirational.
This book made me laugh and cry. The witty humor and fast talk combined with an upbeat attitude in the face of certain tragedy is what made the book so amazing to me. The teenage sarcasm is spot on and gives the book an air of reality. Kate Rudd really nails it. The voice and attitude she gives the characters really brings them to life. Each character is unique and different, but without trying to hard. I would listen to more of her books anytime.
I have not read it.
I don't really think I would compare it to any.
No but I would listen as she gave an excellent performance!
Yes this was a can't stop listening long into the night kind of book, I loved it, I recommend it to friends!
I had high expectations for this book because so many raved about it. It was good but not great in my opinion.
This was a funny, entertaining book, not too long and always interesting. It's enyoyble even for adults like myself (I'm 31).
The story was awesome, and it's a part of life that I rarely think about: dying young due to cancer.
Really helped me get inside the mind of a girl with cancer. I feel like I could deal with it a tiny bit better after having read this book.
She disappeared into the characters. Her performance really let the story come through.
The second time they encounter their favorite author and if I keep writing I'm going to spoil it.
Amazing. Best book of the year so far.
The story line it was just great how they come together right through to the end even though they had nothing to live for they found each other
It was a very emotional book and bang a tear to many readers eyes
Always busy - always in the car.
The story was so strong that you felt the characters feelings.
Amy and Roger's Epic Detour and Along for the Ride.
I love Kate Rudd, she is has a way pulling you into the story either Romance or Teens or any other
Not happily ever after - just life and death in the "Heart of Jesus."
Love the supporting cast - the parents and friends and even the mean author, but they all matter to the story - I know this book has been out for a while and have put it pretty low on my book list because I heard it was depressing, but it was funny with a serious subject - beautiful story
