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)
I love to read, and I'm thrilled to get to listen to books this way- I can fit in much more reading time on a daily basis- thanks audible!
YES. The characters are amazingly real and Kate Rudd did a fantastic job narrating. I was listening to this as I went for a long run (bad idea to some extent, it's hard to cry and breathe at the same time!!!). Totally a keeper, I highly recommend!
BOTH, it's wonderful and it doesn't feel like "young adult"- it's just real teenagers going through tough times.
What I thought was going to be a bit too young of a read for me, I was pleasantly surprised. The characters were fairly complex and the storyline, while classic, did go deeper emotionally than I anticipated. A love story. A story of resilience. Smarts and sarcasm. A story of selfishness and selflessness all rolled into one. Sweet yet salty leaving a huge lump in my throat and a tear down my cheek. Hated for it to end.
I loved the voice of the children. They spoke as tho it could have been a private conversation.
The warmth, and the intimacy.
The art of Living
I plan to read it again. The characters are inviting me back.
In the top third. It's not epic,...more a quick read but, wonderfully funny and witty....since I was unable to put it down - it was a quick finish. I will listen again and again, I know...
Okay For Now for it was emotional and painful. Also a quick read, it was still thought provolking and true.
Oh My......she brought so much to this book - each character better than the last. Authors that want to read their own books need to listen to this book as endorsement why they shouldnt.
It's a privilege to have your heart broken
YES, IT WAS AN INSPIRATIONAL TALE OF LOVE AND LOSS AND HOPE AND FAITH IN OTHER PEOPLE AND I WOULD ENCOURAGE ANY ONE TO READ IT BECAUSE EVERYONE NEEDS A LITTLE FAITH!
WATERS WAS MY FAVORITE BEING A LITTLE SHALLOW IS A PART OF LIFE AND HE SHOWED TRUE FEELING AND A LIME OF GREAT PRESSURE AND LIKE A LOT OF THINGS PUT UNDER PRESSURE HE CAME OUT BETTER THAN BEFORE.
IT WAS ALL WONDERFUL!
WHEN THEY WHERE IN THE MUSEUM AND EVERYONE STARTED CLAPPING BECAUSE THEY DID IT AND GOT TO THE TOP AND WHERE UTTERLY IN LOVE.
Although this book is in the young adult genre (my 13 year old was excited to see I was listening to this) I really liked this book. It tells the story of adolescent cancer patients and their lives, loves, and hopes in the face of terminal illness.
The prose and story line are engaging from the start. I wished it was longer!
The narrator did a great job with the vocal inflections of teenagers as well as the other characters.
dint like the narrator voice. So i stopped reading
very sad. So i stopped reading
So i stopped reading
I believe a different performer. She was overly dramatic for my taste and the major reason for pulling the plug on this book. The dialogue was witty, but she overplayed it.
Me Before You.
It would be unfair to answer this question, as I did not get far enough into the story to render a just opinion.
None because it is simply amazing
A mix of every emotion
I coud not play the book on my hp desktop
Kids with cancer...
I've never hated myself more or felt more blessed. Superbly written. Outstanding narration. Story? Again, kids with cancer.
