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 consider the audio edition of The Fault in Our Stars to be better than the print version?

    It was better because the reader puts her own emphasis on important parts of the book and helps enhance the experience.

    The message of hope, repair, and love.

    "You would think it was depressing, but witty!"
    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed this book. I am glad I listened to it instead of reading the physical copy this allowed me to hear the narrator's wit. I found myself laughing out loud to this book on several occasions. Of course it was sad and endearing. These kids are young, but have to deal with adult problems still while their peers are living normal lives.

    Story
    "My husband even had to admit he enjoyed it!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Fault in Our Stars to be better than the print version?

    I cannot speak to that question except by what the author himself claims that this audio version makes his writing better.


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

    When Peter Van Auten (sp?) Shows up unexpectedly in Hazel ' van.....or should I say Hazel ' mothers van.


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

    She really brought individuality to each of the characters.


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

    Poignant. ...overwhelming....funny & sad.

    "Read the book instead of going to the movie - good"

    I saw this on Audible after considering going to the movie version. Since it didn't appeal to my husband I decided to just listen to the book. It wasn't as much of a tear jerker as I thought it would be. Instead, it was just an enjoyable listen. I grew to like both of the main characters and enjoyed the plot.

    "Two Tissues"
    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."

    Story
    "A "Chick Flick" in book form, Not just for chicks"
    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.

    "good"

    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.
