My wife recommended this one to me back when it debuted two years ago, and now that the movie is playing in theaters and it's is all over the news again I thought it was time to finally check it out. I was afraid the hype would be too much though. Thankfully, not. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green is an elegant love story of joy, heartbreak, and what we do with the time we're given.

There are so many points where the narrative could have gone south—turning melodramatic, cliché, or just plain schmaltzy. But it doesn't. Green's characters feel like real teens just trying to live life to the fullest despite also battling cancer. Hazel especially is as authentic as any living person could be given her extreme circumstances.

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.
