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)
I loved the characters, even though they are teenagers, you notice that their lives are not so simple after all.
The eulogy, that was just happy and sad at the same time.
makes you appreciate life
This book was just very touching, and it just makes you rethink life. Kate Rudd is an excellent narrator. I could easily take breaks while reading this book, and it didn't hook me like the Hunger games book where I couldn't stop reading.
Little bit crazy but prefer the term eccentric. I am a recluse by nature so I live for my books and the friends I find within their pages.
We are all touched by cancer, either directly or indirectly, no one escapes this soul destroying disease. This story is wonderful in its approach and helps those of us lucky enough to be healthy understand the journey of the terminally ill. It is not depressing or even overly sad, just real and illuminated. I would recommend to anyone over the age of 13.
I was so impressed with John Green's writing. I'm not much of a YA fan, but this story was well crafted and well told. He even surprised me now and then. Quite satisfying.
I dont know what to say .i m emotional person damn it my eye socket is tried now ..loved it .omg i m still crying.the flow of the story is so good.my vision is blurr mow.just wanna say i just adored this one:).
I would listen to The Fault in Our Stars again without a doubt. This book is just amazing and so well written that the story feel so personal to you , for me the last 4 chapters where so touching that i could help myself feel what the character was feeling and even let myself cry which never happens with a book . This book reminds me of why i love to care for people and why when i was younger wanted to get into helping individuals with cancer.
One of the mot memorable part of the book for me was when Hazel let herself love Augustus just that much more and kissed him at the Ann Frank house.
I love each and every character performance it was so well done
The book made me want the love they had, it made me laugh and for use easily made me cry through out the last 4 chapters.
This book is just a must read and i am sure you will fall in love with it, with the story and the characters
I really enjoyed their romance and seeing their friendship bloom. I loved the Amsterdam scenes.
I was laying in my bed finishing the book just sobbing. It's a rare book to affect your emotions that much.
Albeit sad, it was a great book and I would reccomend it to anyone! I am excited to see the movie now :)
I have divided opinions about this book. As an adult, I found the writing to be too unbelievable to engage me in the characters. Sorry, but I know plenty of bright 16 year-olds and none of them speak like these two. However, I recognize that a young adult in her teen years might find this romantic. So I tried to imagine my 16 year old self reading this, and frankly I think even then I would have concluded that this book was too hokey. On the positive side, I think it does a fine job of describing the difficult road a cancer patient must traverse.
She does a fine job with the voices in the novel.
12 and under.
Not written it. Adult men should not write teenage sagas.
She was fine,
All of them.
I wasted my money. I am not sure why anyone over the age of 12 would like this book. Predictable, clichéd, ridiculous, are a few words that describe this story. I can't figure out how this was made into a movie. I want my money back!
Here we have a love story where everyone who is under the age of 20 has cancer and is dying. A bit grim, with the full petulance associated with being a teen.
I found the writing excellent as well as the performance, but the topic was so grim that it overshadows everything else.
I will look for other works by John Green as he seems to be an excellent writer, and perhaps another subject will be more enjoyable
John Green truly captures the teenage mind while carefully including sensitive insight into living with disabilities and illness.
For older teens! I've been disappointed at the number of young teens and even tweens that are being allowed to read this. Great book, just not quite appropriate for the younger crowd.
