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)
"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)
Addicted to books, but especially to audiobooks!
I am not going to go into the whole discussion on whether or not adults should read books written about or for young adults. I think that's a very silly argument, in my view it's for everyone to decide what they want to read.
Personally I am way past the age where I decide what to read based on what someone else thinks about it.
Much has been said about this story so I won't bored you with details you already know.
This story is about young love and how devastating it's to see young people dying.
But it's also about the human spirit and our desire to be relevant and leave a mark during the short period of time we have on this earth..
Kate Rudd is a wonderful narrator, I have several titles on my library where she's the narrator and she never disappoints....
The performance was amazing and very touching I loved the different voices and accents it was very touching and made you hopeful even though it was very sad
