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)
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.
Say something about yourself!
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.
I haven't listened to any others.
Subjects were spoken about in an everyday kind of conversation, no over dramatizing, which people with illness's are able to do.
LIFE GOES ON
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..
My daughter asked me to read the book and I loved the story so much that I then got the audiobook and watched the movie. Wonderful and real!
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.
From Wilm., De. Love reading and audiobooks. Other interests include cooking, attending cultural events, my dogs, birding, music and movies.
Wonderfully written and narrated. Very exhilarating, and heart wrenching friendship (love) story of two chronically ill teens.
Not just a depressing cancer story.... The story is horrible. I tried, gave up, end of story and no need to see the movie
"You laugh and cry in the same breath"
A touching story of young love, of hope and little eternity's . A story that makes you laugh and cry in the same breath.
