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.

Given: 4* Overall, 5* Performance, 4* Story

"A sad love story that will touch you at any age. "

Would you consider the audio edition of The Fault in Our Stars to be better than the print version?
I have never read the book, I have watched the film. I would say this is one of the best YA audio books I have listened to.

What did you like best about this story?
It was entertaining though out, I enjoyed the fact that being ill was not something to be negative about all the time and that there was still fun to be had.

Which character – as performed by Kate Rudd – was your favourite?
I thought Kate Rudd did an amazing job with all characters, especially the male voices.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
I felt that I couldn't listen to the book in one sitting as it was quite long, however I feel that I may have had a more emotional pull towards it if I could have done. I felt that the story really grabs you in. Kate Rudd did an amazing job of this. I would actually go out of my way to discover other audio books narrated by her, finding a good narrator can be tough when listening to audio books.

Any additional comments?
I am very pleased I listened to the audio book of The Fault in our Stars, although it is aimed at young adults, do not let that put you off. I think it will touch you whatever age you are. The performance is close to perfect and will leave you feeling very emotional.

 I would like to thank Audible for sending this in exchange for an honest review.
