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)

    "LOVE IT"

    such an emotional roller coaster with wonderful visual imagery and intelligent precocious characters, so unfortunate that life is not a wish granting factory :)

    "Beautiful constellation of stars"

    I loved this novel, John green has such an effortless style of provoking heart ache, pain and humour all at once and making you feel safe within each infinities to connect with the characters and story.

    If you're looking for something to listen to that will make you cry and smile and renew your hope, this book is for you. It is so delicately written that you get lost within the disease maze and trapped within the love story of these two star crossed lovers.

    "Literally Loved the Book."

    It's been One year I Saw the Movie. Since then the Dialogues came into my Thoughts Each and Every Moment. And Now I Listened to the Audio Book. The Movie is Superb BUT after Listening the Book I came to conclusion that The book is much more AWESOME than the Movie. Audio Narration is so Good that it Mingled me with the Situation.

    Story
    "Emotionally touching (even for a college male)"

    To start this review, I need to point out my obvious bias towards John Green. I love that man and I'd read his thoughts that he had on the toilet, if he ever wrote them down. that being saide, this is a very touching story that is not only a teen romance for young readers but a glimpse into the life of dying and death. Mr. Green captures the amazing balance between romance, pity for others, self-pity, trying to separate from parents as teenagers love to do, and a different look of the world. Kate Rudd also does a fantastic job with her performance of narrating this book. Her voice and Hazel Grace Lancaster's voice are perfect for one another. I'd recommend this book to all readers/listeners that want a touching story with well developed characters, hard to overcome plot, and a desire to live.

    "Can't imagine how this could improve"

    The story is, of course, amazing. Brutally honest, hauntingly sad, John Green is a master of the YA genre. But the narrator's performance pushes this production to perfection. Highest possible marks.

    "Phenomenal"

    I love a good read, but this book was so much more. I enjoyed every second because the narrator depicted each scene so perfectly and the characters had become real people in my eyes. I recommend this audio book to everyone I come into contact with.
