Opinion

From Library Staff

Despite the medical miracle that has bought her a few more years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, but when Augustus Waters suddenly appears at the Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel's story is about to be rewritten. There will be tears. I love John Green's smart, funny kids.

2013 Winner Audie Award for Teen

Sixteen-year-old Hazel, a stage IV thyroid cancer patient, has accepted her terminal diagnosis until a chance meeting with a boy at cancer support group forces her to reexamine her perspective on love, loss, and life.

I was shocked and cried, I was expecting her to die from the start. I did really like this book. And I am interested in seeing how the movie comes off. Worth the read!

Bitter-sweet and artistic, yet rarely powerful or compelling. The characters felt slightly exaggerated, yet likable, and the ending didn't feel entirely predicable.

Very good book on CD!! I did not like some of the "Theological" views but the story of LIFE was most delightful!! I will NEVER look at a person with cancer in the same way! One of those books that you hate when it ends!

Thankfully, cancer has barely been a part of my world, which made 16-year-old Hazel’s perspective as a cancer patient new and fascinating to me. Your worldview and priorities are radically altered when you and your regular companions face terminal illness. I grew very attached to John Green’s characters, laughing out loud at their antics and letting tears roll when I had to say goodbye. The reader Kate Rudd has the perfect voice and tone for this book.

I really enjoyed the language of this book. The characters were very well written. As a parent, I enjoyed the fact that the parents in the story were not made out to be complete idiots. Completely sad but worth the journey.

The title of this book is The Fault In Our Stars, not the Fault Of. Please change it. Thank you, this book is the awesomest ever!

This audiobook is outstanding! Narrator Kate Rudd did an amazing job bringing Hazel Grace and Augustus Waters to life. I felt their personalities much more than when I read the print version - how genuinely cool Gus and Hazel are, as characters.
I seem destined to try to read this book in less than optimal circumstances - the print version while at the gym (not easy to sob and still maintain a heartbeat in the aerobic zone), and this audio version mostly during my commute, the tears and snot streaming, and then having to squeegee myself off to walk into work. It seems that, no matter the format, I can't help falling into this book and becoming overly invested in the story, characters and language.

A third of the way into this book, I was starting to wonder what all the fuss was about because the story wasn't leaving an impression on me at all. I even felt that some parts were tedious. But I have to admit that the characters are well written and the more I listened, the more these characters came to life for me and I started to really care for them. This is the point where I started to enjoy the book. You really get pulled into the lives and emotions of this young couple. There are many notable qualities to this book and the audio was well done.
