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)

    Would you listen to The Fault in Our Stars again? Why?

    YES! I enjoyed the book the first time, but I would read it again to absorb more details.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Gus was my favorite character because he was so kind, generous, and brave.


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

    Kate Rudd brings consistency. If I were reading the novel, I'd be breezing through critical parts to see what happens next. I'd miss details that I'd regret missing.


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

    I wouldn't chose the one the film used, "one sick love story."

    Would you listen to The Fault in Our Stars again? Why?

    Yes, Great story. Plus, always better after the first time, since characters are already known.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    No real favorite, although each and every character gives a good representation of the types of people that are in this world, and how each deal with life and different aspects of tragedy. Enlightening and insightful.


    Have you listened to any of Kate Rudd’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No.


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

    The bad thing is, I was listening to this book while sitting at my desk at work. Not the best idea when the story often moved me to tears.


    Any additional comments?

    I wish we could share audio books just like we do hard cover books! I'd lend it to all my friends and to my kids.

    The reason I did not give it 5 stars because I don't believe this is appropriate for middle school students. Too much mature content.

    "Wow! Wow! Wow!"

    This is easily one of the best audio books I have listened to in a long time. The story of a young 16 year old girl who is dying of cancer and yet finds joyous love in all the misery and heartache she has endured. Incredibly emotional. You will laugh out loud. You will cry.

    The narrator is exquisite and perfect to bring about the voice and personality of Hazel. I cannot say enough great things about this book. Just get it and listen to it. Period.

    "Wonderful story, excellent reader"
    If you could sum up The Fault in Our Stars in three words, what would they be?

    Amazing, Thoughtful, Story


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

    Augustus


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

    I cried and laughed throughout the book. I was amazed at how well written and compelling the story is. This is a story about teens in love with cancer-nothing something I would usually pick up or be interested in. I would not have thought it could be so done well. I will definitely be looking for more from this author.


    Any additional comments?

    This book was well written, well thought out. The reader was amazing, I loved every voice she did.

    What did you love best about The Fault in Our Stars?

    I loved the characters, even though they are teenagers, you notice that their lives are not so simple after all.


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

    The eulogy, that was just happy and sad at the same time.


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

    augustus waters


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

    makes you appreciate life


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "A fantastic story and a must read."

    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.
