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.

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)

    "Phenomenal"

    I love a good read, but this book was so much more. I enjoyed every second because the narrator depicted each scene so perfectly and the characters had become real people in my eyes. I recommend this audio book to everyone I come into contact with.

    Story
    "No words are in parity."

    This is a masterpiece, it is not done justice by the movie in my opinion. Such literary merit. Such story telling. Such a roller coaster that only goes up. The speaker puts you in the mind of the narrator, very good oration. Recommend.

    "THE BEST!!!"

    This is my favorite book of all time. Never have I felt so connected to a book. Never has an author gotten me completely.

    I don't have cancer, but I do have cerebral palsy. I understand what it's like to be "other". Thoughts of morality, finding love, and not wanting to be pitied are things I think of on a daily basis. I wish I was more like Hazel, but I'm definitely more like Augustus in regard to their views of the world.

    Read this book, it will change you.

    "Somewhere in the middle"

    This book deserves the positive reviews, but it's not the best YA novel out there. Falls somewhere between Eleanor and Park (Bad) and Flat Out Love (Outstanding).

    "Never Grows Old"

    I am writing this after having listened to it for the sixth time.

    This book is beautiful and brilliant. Entertaining and enlightening. You fall in love with characters and their infinitely too small infinity.

    It makes you look for the wonder in the world.
