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)

    "Not Bad :)"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes because it was a nice story considering the situation.
    Although it was not the best story I kind of enjoyed it :) It was sad and a reminder of what's happening to people around the world. It was a basic story but a story I recommend. Some light reading/audio...

    "WOW!"

    This is a must read book. Although you knew it was going to be a tear jerker, it was so worth every tear that fell. I was so sad when the book was over. Saw the movie also but it doesn't even come near reading the book!

    "Amazing - best audiobook I have ever heard"

    There is a reason why this book is such a phenomenon. John Green writes his characters so well that they come alive. You really start caring for them. And that is why it is so devastating when the inevitable happens. Kate Rudd's narration is astonishing. She captured the voices and, more importantly, the essences of all the characters. She brought it all to glorious life. Listening to this book was a rollercoaster ride - I laughed a lot, I cried a lot, and I reflected a lot. This "Young Adult" book is simply one of the best books I have ever read.

    "Not for the weak"

    I recommend this book for those whom have not seen the life of terminal illness up close to really give you an inside look. This book is heart wrenching and blunt. Beautiful tragedy. You will cry.

    "Lovely Story"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Although the story is ultimately a tragedy, it's not the melodrama of Romeo & Juliet. These characters and their love story are believable and relatable.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    How can one choose between Hazel and Gus?


    What does Kate Rudd bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She sounds like she is Hazel's age, so she embodies her very well.


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

    Absolutely. It was rough, because I was driving while I was listening.


    Any additional comments?

    Even though I am not the target audience for this book (I'm 48), I found it to be intelligent and moving.

    Story
    "Love it...42 year old female"

    My first book by this author. I would never imagine this wasn't written written by a teenage girl with first-hand experience. A very sweet love story that makes the point you can't choose who you fall in love with very poignantly. Also gives you a perspective of what it must be like knowing you're going to die sooner rather then later.
