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.

Publisher's Summary

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.

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)

    "Beautiful Story"

    I absolutely loved this book. I like how he didn't try to romanticize illness, but rather told the truth.

    "gives me chills"

    oh I'm torn. I love the story so much. the way it was written, the plot, the everything. but it breaks my heart to know that this is life for some in this world. gives you a heavy dose of reality for ones plagued with such a heavy burden-cancer.

    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!

    "Not going to watch the movie"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    If a friend was going to read the book or watch the movie, I would recommend the audio book


    Would you recommend The Fault in Our Stars to your friends? Why or why not?

    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.
