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.

©2012 John Green (P)2012 Brilliance Audio, Inc.

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)

    "Amazing and touching must read"
    Would you listen to The Fault in Our Stars again? Why?

    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.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Fault in Our Stars?

    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.


    Which character – as performed by Kate Rudd – was your favorite?

    I love each and every character performance it was so well done


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is just a must read and i am sure you will fall in love with it, with the story and the characters

    Story
    "So good, so sad"
    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Fault in Our Stars?

    I really enjoyed their romance and seeing their friendship bloom. I loved the Amsterdam scenes.


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

    I was laying in my bed finishing the book just sobbing. It's a rare book to affect your emotions that much.


    Any additional comments?

    Albeit sad, it was a great book and I would reccomend it to anyone! I am excited to see the movie now :)

    Story
    "I've yet to meet a teen that speaks like this!"
    What did you like best about The Fault in Our Stars? What did you like least?

    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.


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

    She does a fine job with the voices in the novel.

    "Wow, and not in a good way!"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    12 and under.


    What could John Green have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Not written it. Adult men should not write teenage sagas.


    What aspect of Kate Rudd’s performance would you have changed?

    She was fine,


    What character would you cut from The Fault in Our Stars?

    All of them.


    Any additional comments?

    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!

    Story
    "The premise is simply critically sad"

    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

    "My new favorite author!"
    What did you love best about The Fault in Our Stars?

    John Green truly captures the teenage mind while carefully including sensitive insight into living with disabilities and illness.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "A witty and tender story about love and life."
    Would you listen to The Fault in Our Stars again? Why?

    Most definitely yes.

    John Green does a fantastic job of bringing these characters to life - I cried, felt my heartstrings pulled and laughed. My favourite part of this was the dialogue between the Hazel and Gus – it was so geeky and funny.

    Kate Rudd is an excellent narrator and really enhanced my experience of this wonderful book.

    "True love endorse!"

    This is a great book, even when it starts it can be a little crude with the cussing. The overall story outweighs that.True love prevails, and even if you do not live for 90 years, life can still be full if you have love.

    Any additional comments?

    This was a book that was recommended to me by a friend. I read the description, I was not at that interested at the time. I added it to my favorites any way. I kept hearing how great this book was so finally I used a credit to get the book knowing in the back of the mind if it ends of being unbearable I can always return it. Well, in the end I spent an entire Sunday listening to this book. I had to stop it a few times to take care of a few things but if it would not have been for these interruptions I would have completed it all in "one sitting."
