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)
In the book fault in our stars it totally met my expectations. I read it on audible and the person who read it to me was great, overall everything was great. It was so good that I read it all day a 8 hour long audio and I know it's not much but that is good for a teenager who spends her time in her room on the internet doing nothing but wow this little book changed everything anyway I don't waste your time or anything...haha its just a review and yeah but WOW my mind was blown a way on how good this book was words can't even describe how amazing this book was all I can really say is I couldn't put this book done for a sec even if my life depended upon it so whoever is reading this you really need to read the fault in our stars it will totally blow your mind away!!!!
I really love this story. It makes you think about life and death and how the world keeps moving after we are gone. It is so touching. I do not cry often when I read books but this book made me cry! I would suggest it to anyone!
Moving story of love between two teenagers in the ever present reality of their own mortality
Very well written, really great narrator. Made you laugh, made you cry (a lot).
Cried, certainly. But I actually laughed a lot too.
The world is not a wish granting factory, but it's still a grand place, where people meet and give and get love.
Loved it, though it made me wonder if I'm just acting like a teenager for falling so much for these characters. I also expected to find it harder to handle the subject, but the people who are sick, are the best of humanity, and I found I wanted to go through it with them, even though, cancer sucks. I imagine John Green has done a great service to cancer patients, for this portrayal of life with cancer, especially young patients. It's a delicious bitter sweet.
So much better than the movie!! Love their connection and weirdness!! The play so well off each other. But a really tear jerker.
