    "Moving story about life and love"
    Would you consider the audio edition of This Star Won't Go Out to be better than the print version?

    I have both the printed and Audio of this book. Her art is great in the print, But the emotion from the people reading this book is moving. Its narrated by many of the people who wrote parts of the book. Her parents Lori and Wayne, you can feel all the feels from there reading.


    What other book might you compare This Star Won't Go Out to and why?

    such a deep


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

    Many are not professional narrators but the people in the book.


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

    its a long book and full of emotion.


    Any additional comments?

    "An emotional read (or listen in this case)"

    This book will change you. It should because it's about a precious amazing girl who changed people all over the world. This book is an emotional roller coaster ride, taking you from laugher to tears, despair to hope.

    British ex-pat living in NC. Have more personalities than Sybil which is reflected in my choice of books! Frustrated writer at heart.

    Story
    "This adult cried an ocean of grateful tears"

    I read 'The Fault in our Stars' so it seemed like a natural progression to read this volume. I had no idea that this was for 'teens' but 90% was not. How can cancer and death be for youngsters. This book make me 'think', cry and re-evaluate my relationships. As a youngster I too faced death so I could empathize. I 'got' it, I 'got' Esther. It brought me back to a time when my friends and family( including my four pawed family) were more important than my 'must do' list. It brought me back to a time when dreams were big and trying was all that mattered. Nothing was impossible and real worries could be brushed aside by a kiss on my forehead or the gentle sweet purring of my cat.


    This may not be for everyone but with audible's return policy I highly recommend that you give this book a try. Personally it is a read and reread for this fan.

    Esther, sweetie rest in awesome.
