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)
Listened to this while at work and my coworkers could not understand what I was feeling. Totally sobbed my eyes out! I loved this book. Hope the people at my work don't think I'm crazy!
If a friend was going to read the book or watch the movie, I would recommend the audio book
not really. It was a sweet love story about a dying girl, but it was kind of predictable. I guess that is why I normally stay away from this genre.
The narrator was excellent!
The book was great! I loved that Anna looked at life with such open eyes, taking in everything that crossed her path with a sense of humor and understanding. The love story between her and Gus was inspiring.
This is a beautiful story brilliantly told. Not at all what I expected from a book about a young cancer victim. I expected a tear-jerker sappy sad story but this is an insightful look into a very bright and interesting mind. I enjoyed it thoroughly.
I am a high school teacher and found this book to be a wake up call for the healthy adults around our, not so lucky, younger generation.
the narrarotor was amamzing she was good, the book was awesome favorite moment was when he pissed is bed that part was funny the way hazel grace reacts
This book was amazing. the writing was descriptive and deep, it made me cry and then immediately laugh. Young love and young heartbreak. The narrator was ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE. I felt so connected with the characters through her reading. I recommend this to anyone and everyone. wow.
