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)

    "Outstanding book/audio"

    This is one of my absolute favorite books ever. I've read it twice over the past couple years (which I don't often do) and I just finished listening to it on Audible. The audible version is really great and I loved hearing the story again. Read and/or listen to this book! It's a must for adults and teens alike.

    Story
    "Love struggling against the mortal coil"

    A very emotional read of two young hearts battling against the mortal coil struggling with love, loss and striving for normalcy. It is a very engaging and emotionally draining read that is very hard to put down once it has sucked you in.

    "The Fault In Our Stars"
    Where does The Fault in Our Stars rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Since I only have 2 audio books....this book ranks #1! I can't wait till the movie comes out!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I don't really have a favorite character.


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

    She added feeling and emotion to the book. She basically gave a voice to the characters.


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

    YASSSSSSSS!!!


    Any additional comments?

    Dear John Green, please make a sequel to TFIOS, congrats it being a best seller, and congrats on getting your book made into a movie. I can't wait till it comes out on June 6th!

    "Get it!"
    What did you love best about The Fault in Our Stars?

    I kept seeing it at the book store, on websites about book, on websites not about books... I finally decided to take a listen. Now I know why it has been added to so many "MUST READ" posts and lists. It's good. Really really good.


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

    She rocked this! I love books on tape but have had a hard time listening to some because of the reader. Not this time. She was so good that I believed she was my friend, Hazel.

    Story
    "Excellent book, just not my usual kind of book..."

    Don't excuse yourself from reading this just because you aren't a young adult, or don't know someone who is dying or because you don't want a book which may cause you to tear up. While those are oft times good reasons for me to avoid a book, they don't apply here. You need to read this book because it is entertaining. You deserve that. You also deserve the opportunity to think about how you want to approach your life's end and not in a morbid kind of way. I found this book to be mostly entertaining, clearly honest, touching, thoughtful, loving and transcending. Life can be so many things and there is a lot of life in this book to be thought about. I'll still be thinking about the fault in my stars while I return to my usual entertainment, books that don't have very much reality, and not near as much heart.

    Story
    "The fault is in us."
    What made the experience of listening to The Fault in Our Stars the most enjoyable?

    Hearing and Feeling the emotions of the characters as if I was sitting in the room with them.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved that the characters didn't feel sorry for themselves and didn't want my pity although as it was noted later there were perks to having some pity. Made me smile.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    It was a toss up between Isaac destroying the trophies with Augustus cheering him on, and the egging of the ex-girlfriends car. I was laughing so hard.


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

    Yes. At the end, I cried so hard....in a good way...which probably only makes sense to me. My hubby had to give me a hug. I have never been so moved by a book. I loved the sweetness of the budding romance.


    Any additional comments?

    I loved the way the author made me like Peter Van Houten in the end and I'm glad John Green didn't end this book mid writing the way his fictional author did. If he had I think I would have felt as Hazel-Grace did that I needed to resume the search for Gus's pages for closure..

    Story
    "As Good as Advertised"

    Green may be classified as YA, but his stories certainly have an appeal to adult audiences. His teenage stars are well drawn, fully realized, and remarkably true. His insights into the minds of those dealing with life crises are compelling. Do not be put off by thinking that this book is for middle-schoolers. Indeed, I would recommend that parents of middle schoolers read it first to help younger readers deal with its difficult themes. But read it for yourself. I promise you will come away carrying thoughts provoked by this well-told tale.
