The Fault in Our Stars | [John Green]

The Fault in Our Stars

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.

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.

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)

    Story
    "Narrator is awful. Just read the book yourself"
    What would have made The Fault in Our Stars better?

    Less melodramatic narration. She RUINS the characters. Yes it's a sad book, but that doesn't mean every line should be read breathlessly, as if the character is about to start crying or pass out. She reads the characters in "annoying teenager" voice. They are not written as annoying teenagers.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    You can tell she went into the book with a preconceived notion of this as a Young Adult novel. She sounds like she is trying to sound like a teenager. It RUINS the audio experience.


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

    Kate Rudd.

    Story
    "Love/Life Is Bittersweet."
    Where does The Fault in Our Stars rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I can't say exactly but, it's certainly one of the better ones. Engaging from start to finish all the while making very sharp observations about real life.


    What other book might you compare The Fault in Our Stars to and why?

    John Green's other book, Paper Towns. The characters in both books are extremely enjoyable.


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

    I haven't but, she was brilliant and her performance made the story that much more gut wrenching.


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

    Yep but, it's a spoiler so I can't really say.


    Any additional comments?

    It may be considered "young adult" but the observations of life and why good things and bad things happen to us are poignant and really good learn for all ages.

    "Perfect narrator for a lovely story"

    This is a lovely, realistic book. I have worked with dying people, and the situations presented are believable. I enjoyed the humor, frequently people who have not been in this situation are appalled when those going through it find humor in tragedy, but it is a healthy coping mechanism. I would recommend this book for sure.

    Story
    "Cancer Truth~Struggles~Gifts~Life~EXCELLENT!!!"
    What made the experience of listening to The Fault in Our Stars the most enjoyable?

    I have a sister who went through ovarian cancer; listening to the story of Hazel Grace, Augustus and Isaac gave a true to life view of what people especially teens feel emotionally trying to keep positive, getting the most out of life yet being real through their journey. Knowing how to protect parents from more grief and knowing the correct answers to get what you need in hospital stays. They were REAL!!


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked Augustus side of positivity; how he spoke; always keeping the positive at the home front. I loved his relationship with Hazel Grace and all he did to get her"wish" to go to Amsterdam including his final letter for Hazel Grace.


    What three words best describe Kate Rudd’s performance?

    Spectacular, sensitive, perfect!!!!!


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

    The abundant loving perseverance of Augustus love to get Hazel Grace's answer from the author in Amsterdam despite his pathetic nature. Also when Augustus called Hazel Grace from the gas station and before that the Eulogy for his own funeral. Obviously there are many moments!!! They were amazing true to life characters!

    The cigarette Augustus smoked but didn't smoke.


    Any additional comments?

    I felt this book was very true to life. I think these kids saw life better through their eyes than those who are not sick. They know the value of being outside, living every second, the beauty of nature and of persevering in living and loving until the end day though they don't know when that end day is! Great audio book!! Kate Rudd is fabulous as is the author John Green. Excellent book!! Written well!

    Lots of tears but also a lot of laugh out loud moments!

    "Sweet little book"
    Would you listen to The Fault in Our Stars again? Why?

    I found this book enjoyable to listen to. It's an easy listen. It's funny in parts and very sad in parts also. As a person who lives in cronic pain I related to these people. Although they are much younger. I listened to this book mainly because I saw my grand-daughter reading it and I always like to know what she's into. So I decided to listen to it. I'm 60 she's 15. I think it was a good book for her to read. I hope she was not only entertained by it but I hope she learned from it also. I'm glad I listened to it and I'm also glad she was reading it.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I enjoyed all of them and related to each of them


    What about Kate Rudd’s performance did you like?

    She did a wonderful job.


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

    There were many, maybe it's because I live in cronic pain. But when they were quoting from the book "Pain Demands Attention" MAN that really hit home. Because it truely does.

    An emotional roller coaster but you'll love the ride -- cerebral and wrought with righteous angst. I became immersed in the lives of the characters. Well done!
