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)

    "Enjoyable"
    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked this book, and it was read well. You have to go into it knowing that it's going to be sad, in a strangely upbeat way. The main character is an interesting person. I'm going to recommend it to my 17-year-old and also to my 13-year-old as a good book with a person a little older than them as the narrator. Anyone who has a chronic condition, which apparently includes much of the people in the world, judging from the responses I get when I tell people about my particular infirmity, will identify with the inevitable arc of the story.

    "Entertaining Listen"
    Any additional comments?

    Very easy to listen to. For me, not as tear inducing as I was expecting, perhaps due to the fact that a fully grown male author was narrating from the point of a terminal teenage girl. Some wonderful insights on the pain that envelops families and friends of cancer patients.
    A little unrealistic how the central characters are overly witty and intellectual at such a young age but great story nonetheless.

    "Great book"

    This book is well written, well performed and is overall extremely enjoyable. This book made me feel a spectrum of emotions. It explores the topics of life, death, love and sickness in a well I've never experienced before. I could not stop listening. It made me laugh, made me cry and made me think. This is one of my favorite books and is now also one of my favorite audio books. If you haven't read it you should

    "Simply a great listen"
    What made the experience of listening to The Fault in Our Stars the most enjoyable?

    Rudd is just perfect for this book. This is one of those books I truly cannot imagine without her voice.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Its simplicity. The plot can be distilled into two or three bullet points, and this helps focus the entire experience on the characters, the situation, and their relationships.


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

    In the best audiobooks the narrator becomes a living character, and this book is an ideal example of that.

    "Great story but tear jerker!"

    This was a wonderful story of young love - except that the two people involved had cancer. Green balanced medical details artfully with excerpts from teenage life, and you found yourself being pulled into the story of Hazel Grace and Augustus. I loved this book - I just wish it had been longer! The warnings about having Kleenex near should be taken seriously, because this book will make you cry and make you laugh, and even look at your life a little differently! More from this author, Audible, please!

    Story
    "Loved, Loved Loved this book"
    If you could sum up The Fault in Our Stars in three words, what would they be?

    The characters were so amazing, the dialogue between them was perfect, I didn't want it to end


    What did you like best about this story?

    I became interested in every book John Green has wrote.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Yes he does but the book isn't about information its about dreams, and love, and finding happiness.


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

    Nothing I love his narration, he narrates all but one of John Green's books.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't let the subject matter keep you from reading it or that is written for a teen audience.

    "Proof that YA Lit is good for adults too!"

    Touching, real characters that will stay with you long after you are done. Young Adult lit has come a long way and this is a great example of a novel that can and should appeal to adult readers. Beautifully written. Wonderfully narrated.

    Perfectly written. Great understanding of character and how in extremes they become more that just characters on a page.
