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)
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.
I couldnt wait to get to the end to find out what happens. I didn't want to get to the end to find out what happens. It is now a part of my heart, and I'm 57 years young.
A must read!
Can't pick just one part.
I loved them all.
"I find it difficult to believe that in the absence of broccoli, chocolate would taste any less sweet."
Beautiful story, beautifully written and beautifully narrated!
Incredible. Emotional. Beautiful.
This was my first audiobook, and I'm happy that I chose this one to be my first. The book was incredible, and I will surely listen again in the months to come.
New to audible and HOOKED! I can't believe I have waited this long to start.
I enjoyed the book and now of course I'm hooked to audibles ... Quick listen but a beautiful story recommended
Beautiful embodiment of the emotional reality of life. Invites you into to a world of existential questions and the journey towards understanding purpose, innocent suffering, chronic afflictions and the life we leave behind while maintaining a light of hope and truth that guides you through this world of uncertainty grasping at resolution.
I LOVE THIS BOOK! It's the best love story but, it's more about what actually happens in the world. Not like Cinderella how there always a happy ending and they both fall in love, this book is a million times better!
I loved that the plot was about more than just a girl and guy struggling with cancer. In fact, the cancer while a main conflict of the story really takes a backseat to their tackling of the existential questions that determine their placement in the bigger picture.
I loved all of the characters:
I loved Hazel for her need to push life away as a way of maintaining her distance from how unfair her fate is. I loved how she wanted to leave the smallest impact possible on the world around her to reduce the damage caused by her death.
I loved how Augustus wants to impact the world as much as possible through sacrifice. I loved how he saw Hazel for what she is and is in awe of her wish to leave as little impact as possible while still staying true to himself.
I loved how their support group is in the "literal heart of Jesus."
I loved that not everyone gets a happy ending.
I love how much my students enjoy reading it.
I love that she brings each character to life. She does voices, and I was able to take in the story and listen through my sobs. I also love that she did not feel the need to do a little girl voice for Hazel despite her age. I hate when narrators do that.
There is a film... It follows pretty closely.
I love this book as an adult. I recommend it to my students. I love that it is so much deeper than the majority of the books written for young adults.
