Audible Editor Reviews

Why we think it's Essential - It doesn’t matter that John Green’s target audience is teenagers – his characters are smart, honest, and funny no matter how old you are, and the universal themes captured in this book are, well, universal. Terminal cancer may not be the most uplifting of plotlines, but don’t let that stop you from listening to this wonderful story. Narrator Kate Rudd is most impressive in handling all of the male and female characters – young and old, American and Dutch alike – and is definitely a rising (no pun intended) star. — Diana D.

Publisher's Summary

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.

©2012 John Green (P)2012 Brilliance Audio, Inc.

What the Critics Say

"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)

    "Great audio book for a trip!"

    Very well done. I enjoyed the story and performance.
    Initially was hesitant to listen since I had a son with medical issues but realized it was not about that, more about coming of age love intensified by the limited time both characters have.

    "the truth: it is what it is"
    Where does The Fault in Our Stars rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I didn't think of this as a favorite but after time has pased, I think of it fairy often. It's not for everyone but if you can accept that fact that the character has terminal cancer, as she has, you can appreciate her ability to live a somewhat normal life.


    If you’ve listened to books by John Green before, how does this one compare?

    I haven't listened to any others.


    What about Kate Rudd’s performance did you like?

    Subjects were spoken about in an everyday kind of conversation, no over dramatizing, which people with illness's are able to do.


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

    LIFE GOES ON


    Any additional comments?

    I loved the fact that this young girl found some romance in her short life and that her friend was sensitve to her needs without pitiying her..

    "Very good read"

    The parts about Gus dying is very touching, made me wonder how I would die. But the beginning is a little dragging and at some point I almost lost interest to keep reading . But I'm very glad I finished the book, wouldn't want to miss the end.
