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.

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
    "I wanted a little bit more"
    Any additional comments?

    I'm certainly not in the demographic for this book, but it was on sale and the reviews were very good. So, I thought i would give it a try.

    The book does not disappoint. It is very well written and Kate Rudd was fantastic. I think she added emotion to the story that would be missed in the written word.

    I wanted a bit more spiritually in the story. Most of us either knows someone with cancer or knows someone who died from it. And, because of that, I was hoping the story would touch a little deeper in that area. After finding out the writer, John Green, volunteered in a children's cancer ward as an chaplain out of school, I'm even more surprised that he didn't go deeper in that area of the story.

    All in all, this is a wonderful story that is well worth your time. Kate Rudd really makes you feel what Hazel is experiencing. I can see why the reviews are good.

    Story
    "Endearing and unforgettable"

    I was expecting to enjoy this youth novel as much as I did. The honesty in which in characters embrace the perils of their situation while uplifting each other offers constant humor and sentiment throughout the story. The perspective of the sick who " do not have the luxury of being able to ignore their mortality" deepens the development of the simplest plot points and opens the reader (or listener) to a world most are fortunate not to know. Recommended for all ages!

    "Great book for cancer patients/survivors."

    I originally had my doubts that I would enjoy this book, but as a cancer survivor of only 3 years it grabbed me from the start.

    "Bitter sweet story"

    This is a good story, and one that is not often told. The characters were well thought out and interesting. It's hard to deal with a terminal illness, or any disability, and this story brings that challenge into the open.

    I like that even though we know Hazel will soon die, it ended on an up note. Good story dealing with sickness, death, and living.
