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)

    "first audio book I ever read. loved it!"

    I had my doubts about this book, especially when I learned the main characters had cancer. As this is a subject too close to my heart I thought "not another cancer story". Needless to say as the story progressed I became attached to Hazel and couldn't wait to hear what she was going to say next. the emotions were all over but strangely comforting. Ms. Rudd did a fantastic job of narration. I would highly recommend this audio book.

    "An amazing tale of love, loss, and life"

    An eye opener for sure. Especially if you have yet to indulge in the great mysteries in life such as, what happens when you die, how much your life matters, and a great overall lesson that life can be great and amazing but in the end no matter what you do your life WILL end and when it does, you another person has succumb to death and you will no longer exist.

    Story
    "A really good read, but the story is so sad!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Fault in Our Stars to be better than the print version?

    yes, because I can enjoy it on my commute to work!


    What did you like best about this story?

    It was sad and sweet. I knew the characters wouldn't all end up with a happy ending, but it was well written and interesting, so I enjoyed it despite the depth of sadness involved.


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

    Great voice, nice performance.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    It is a film, and it's just as sad in movie form....


    Any additional comments?

    This was my first book by this author- I will be looking into his other books soon!

    "loved the book"

    I loved this book so much!! I somewhat got annoyed with the reader at points trying to do other accents and doing a not so hot job. lol. nonjudgmental! I did like she had great sense of pausing and really got a sense of when each character was speaking.

    Story
    "How can anyone put a masterpiece into words?"

    Honestly the only reason I read The Fault in Our Stars was so I could get my wife to read a book of my choice. Never in a million years would I have imagined that I could or would be touched and moved so deeply by a story that I had little interest in initially. I am no writer nor expert on the subject but when I began listening to this blossoming and deeply engrossing story of love and loss I simply couldn't find the will to stop. All I can say is give it a chance. You will not regret it and don't miss this opportunity.
