The Fault in Our Stars | [John Green]

The Fault in Our Stars

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.

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.

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)

    "Perfectly unperfect"
    If you could sum up The Fault in Our Stars in three words, what would they be?

    My three words would be lovely, intelligent, deep


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

    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.


    Which character – as performed by Kate Rudd – was your favorite?

    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.


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

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    Kate Rudd definitely read A Fault in Our Stars beautifully, as it was intelligently written.

    "Stick by, it is worth it!"

    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!

    Story
    "Listened twice in a row (new for me)"
    What did you love best about The Fault in Our Stars?

    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.


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

    The romantic dinner in Amsterdam. The kiss. The eulogy rehearsal.

    "Kate Rudd is perfect."
    If you could sum up The Fault in Our Stars in three words, what would they be?

    Hilarious. Tragic. Inspirational.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    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.

    "It was fantastic"
    What made the experience of listening to The Fault in Our Stars the most enjoyable?

    The story was awesome, and it's a part of life that I rarely think about: dying young due to cancer.


    What did you like best about this story?

    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.


    What about Kate Rudd’s performance did you like?

    She disappeared into the characters. Her performance really let the story come through.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The second time they encounter their favorite author and if I keep writing I'm going to spoil it.


    Any additional comments?

    Amazing. Best book of the year so far.

    "Get your tissues, settle in for an amazing story"
    What made the experience of listening to The Fault in Our Stars the most enjoyable?

    The story was so strong that you felt the characters feelings.


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

    Amy and Roger's Epic Detour and Along for the Ride.


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

    I love Kate Rudd, she is has a way pulling you into the story either Romance or Teens or any other


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

    Not happily ever after - just life and death in the "Heart of Jesus."


    Any additional comments?

    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
