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)

    "I heard of the movie but..."

    I heard the movie is amazing, people love it but I have not yet seen it... I usually have a 1hr drive from home/work and back, let's say my playlist was getting pretty played out so decide to give audible a chance and let me tell you best choice ever.. First book The Fault in Our Stars best choice ever. I laughed, cry, smile and many more faces while listening to the book. I usually don't go for the "romantic" book, but this book is more than that... Is a life experience that makes you realize everyone is the same we just have different paths, but alternately love is for everyone... This book is amazing, it took john a long time to write the book and now we know why....

    Story
    "A Look at Life from a Glass Half Empty"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, for light reading. It provides a good story line on a family life no one wishes to experience and very few discuss.


    Would you be willing to try another book from John Green? Why or why not?

    Probably I would. His characters have peculiar personalities in this book that were entertaining.


    What about Kate Rudd’s performance did you like?

    She was an excellent storyteller.


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

    I did not laugh or cry. The characters were so different from my reality that I did not connect to them, though I thought their stories were interesting and entertaining to read about.


    Any additional comments?

    Very good YA read and would most likely provide more emotional attachment than adults.

    "Loved it!"

    The story is beautiful. Loving someone with any kind of illness is difficult, but you learn to see beauty in the life we have, the world that surrounds us, and the things we do have.
    The reader was quiet pleasant to listen to.

    British ex-pat living in NC. Have more personalities than Sybil which is reflected in my choice of books! Frustrated writer at heart.

    Story
    "Bliss for the ears of this adult's ears."

    I listened to this book out of pure curiosity. I had no idea that it was written for teens. I loved it. It was pure escapism with it's picture imagery and the narrator's excellent performance.
    Have to admit that I cried my eyes out at certain parts. I rarely read fiction and often enjoy much heavier subjects. However I plan to read another John Green novel very soon. I feel that he may be changing this woman's reading habits!
