Description

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.

©2012 John Green (P)2012 Brilliance Audio, Inc.

Critiques

"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)

Wonderful Poignant Story

STORY - As a rule I don't like sad books or movies, but I decided to take a chance on this one for the sake of variety and also the very high ratings. I was not disappointed. The only reason I didn't rate this book a 5 is because it was -- well, predictably sad. The story is about two teenagers, Hazel and Augustus, who both have cancer and fall in love. They are both very smart, mature for their years and have healthy attitudes about their illness. The story doesn't dwell on tear-jerking descriptions of their symptoms and suffering. It is more about how they struggle to just be normal teenagers and try to do what other kids their age do. That is what's so sad, the fact that they just accept amputations, tubes and treatments as normal, often joking about their own shortcomings.

Despite the sadness, it is a beautifully written story and I couldn't stop listening. Hazel and Gus are loveable teenaged characters and their story seems very real. The truth that serious illnesses affect children is something we don't like to think about, but sometimes we need to be reminded.

NARRATION - The reading of this story is good, but there is nothing special about the performance.

OVERALL - If you don't mind a good cry, I would definitely recommend this book.

Sad Premise, Fantastic Story

Where does The Fault in Our Stars rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I would place this one near the top of the YA titles I've sampled.

Which scene was your favorite?

I enjoyed the couple's time in Amsterdam. I liked the author of Hazel's book. He was flawed, humorous, and inevitably redeemable.

I also thought the simplistic drawing of the circle diagram was hilarious.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I did cry at the end and chuckle during the middle. John Green has the ability to insert humor at almost every turn. This was his best attempt at creating sadness.

Any additional comments?

Great read.

Bright, Funny, Inspiring, Poignant & Powerful

I generally find Teen/Young-Adult fiction tedious but I laughed more than I cried (I did both, sometimes simultaneously) during this wonderful book. I have not been a teen for several decades (and was never a teenage girl), but I could not put this book down, and sighed when it came to an end. This is decidedly NOT a book about cancer, this is a book about life. The narration was fantastic, depicting subtle and incongruous teen emotions and the breathless panic of oxygen deprivation. The characters are mostly teens, with fledgling self-images yet they are written with nuance and power and grace. I find most books in this genre sappy, boring, and (unintentionally) uninspiring. I found this book deeply inspiring. It is about choice, particularly the choice to love, regardless of the inexorable outcome of pain, or death, or both.

I really enjoyed sharing many books with my daughter when she was young, in installments on short car trips, or whole books on long trips. Although I would have recommend this book to her, this book has a particularly personal narrative style that I think is better absorbed personally, at least the first time.

Quite a few reviews say things like “heartbreaking” or “sad”. I did not find this book ever sad or heartbreaking, but instead intensely poignant. This is not a tear-jerker. This is a classic that I expect will be recommended and read for many decades to come.

Don't let the subject stop you

I've never heard of John Green nor did I know this was a Young Adult book or I may have passed on it completely. I chose it because of all the 5 star ratings. There's no way to sugarcoat this. This book is about teenagers with cancer. Hazel Grace Lancaster, the narrator, is 16 and carries an oxygen tank with her everywhere. Augustus Waters lost his leg to cancer. These two teens meet in a support group and eventually fall in love.

Although the disease is always front and center, Green does an excellent job of creating an adventure that is not related to their illness. He has worked a beautiful story around it in order to follow something more important; a dream to meet Peter Van Houten, an author who lives in the Netherlands. Hazel needs to find out what ultimately happens to a character in one of his books and Augustus is going to do everything in his power to help her make that dream come true. These two teenagers are so inspiring they treat cancer like more of an inconvenience than a life sentence, a real life lesson on many different levels.

I connected to these teens and to their parents. I can honestly say I "enjoyed" this book, it was funny, haunting and tragic all at the same time. Don't pass on it because of the big "C", you'll be missing quite a gem.

Kate Rudd brought Hazel to life. She did an excellent job with the narration.

Kate Rudd is my new favorite narrator

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. Though I’ve listened to John Green before (Will Grayson, Will Grayson was also really good!), this was the first time I heard narrator Kate Rudd, and I was most impressed with how she handled all the male and female characters – young and old, American and Dutch. I will definitely be looking for more of her performances in the future!

Excellent for whole family; sad but uplifting

Would you consider the audio edition of The Fault in Our Stars to be better than the print version?

I thought the narration was excellent and as such I recommended for everyone to listen to it on audio.

Any additional comments?

I bought this audio several months ago for my sons (ages 12 and 15). I was surprised how much I liked it too, though I found it much sadder than they did. We enjoyed the literary allusions and humor throughout. I haven't seen the movie, but they both thought the audiobook was superior.

Even 71 year-olds can love this one!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

As the title states, I am 71. I am also a retired college English professor with a strong interest in young adult fiction. I have discovered over and over that excellent young adult fiction can be totally appropriate for adults, too, even aging ones. This is a novel that rises above sentimentality but not sentiment. Like all good fiction, it broadens one's understanding of the human condition. I strongly recommend it.

Just barely, barely, barely off the mark

There are books that you experience in a state of welcoming bliss. They stick with you because you needed to read them JUST RIGHT NOW. And somehow the universe converged at the perfect moment to drop a wonderful story about this or that into your hands. You read with great fervor the adventures, sadness, mystery, or humor of your fictional doppleganger, and when you are done, you feel awash in both elation and deflation, wondering if you will ever find another story like this one.

This was not one of those stories. It could have been, and at times it seemed on the verge of becoming one of them, but it ended and I did not feel that. I have no doubt that it probably instills in others the feelings that I wrote about above. For me, I experienced the roller coaster of Hazel Grace's young life and was properly enchanted, worried, and hopeful for her. I think that I wanted something even more profound in the end, and it just wasn't there for me.

This, in no way, should discourage you from reading this story. It is beautifully written and wonderfully executed. Kate Rudd does a fantastic job of bringing Hazel Grace to life, to the point that I'm not sure they aren't the same person. This story of life, and its byproduct cancer, is filled with moments of pure happiness, humor, and devastating sadness. John Green's compelling storytelling is on full display here, and I cannot fault the story for any shortcomings.

An excellent read no matter what my unreasonable expectations may have been.

A story about LIFE, not death...

I had a little trouble getting into this book at first (hence the four stars), but once I did I was swept away by it. I even won a "weekend warrior" badge for spending all day Saturday listening to it!

How does this book make the world a better place? It will remind you of how precious life is. Hazel and Augustus, the teenage protagonists who are battling terminal cancer, live more life in their short months together than many people live in years. Their diagnoses urge them on instead of holding them back. They appreciate the fragilitiy of life in a way that we all should, but only those touched by illness often do. Together they experience friendship, love, adventure, loss and ultimately death. Listen to this book and think of the people who are precious to you, then call them and tell them you love them. It's the kind of book that inspires you to do that.

ADDED BONUS!! At the end of the audiobook you get to listen to an interview with author John Green. Green talks about the book, the characters and even his thoughts about what happens to characters after a book ends. He also reveals that there is a version of this audiobook where he is the reader, for those of you who love to listen to authors narrate their own work.

To conclude, whether you are a young adult or an adult who is young at heart, you will enjoy listening to this book. It will remind you of how beautiful life can be, even - or especially - in the face of death.

Couldn't Stop Listening

It's been a while since I listened a book that I couldn't "put down." I bought this book on a whim, but was captivated from the very beginning. This is the story about a terminally ill teenager who falls in love with another teenage cancer victim, and just how they cope with what is left of their lives. It is a sweet story, funny, sad, engaging, deep, superficial, heartwarming, heartbreaking. It is very well written. One gets the feeling that these teenagers crammed so much life into their short ones that perhaps we could all take a lesson from them. It is a YA novel but I would hope the young people who choose to read it are mature enough to appreciate and understand it. There is a lot to "handle" in this book.

The narrator, Kate Rudd, is absolutely exceptional. She has a great career ahead of her narrating books if she so chooses. She had me believing her every word.

Some Infinities Are Bigger Than Other Infinities.

Ich bin eher zufällig auf diesen Titel gestoßen und wollte es schon als typisches Krebsbuch abwinken, mit denen ich eigentlich nicht viel anfangen kann, weil ich nicht sonderlich scharf auf a) die Thematik noch b) das Leiden meinerseits war - ich habe festgestellt, dass mein Fell für solche Bücher einfach nicht dick genug ist.
Was mich dann im Endeffekt dazu bewogen hat, der Geschichte eine Chance zu geben, waren die durchweg mehr als positiven Kritiken und Rezensionen, die das Buch in höchsten Tönen lobten.

Und ich bin so froh, dass ich es getan habe.
Hazels und Augustus' Geschichte ist es auf jeden Fall wert, dass man sie liest/hört. Der Roman lebt von seinen Charakteren. Hazel, als Protagonistin aus deren Perspektive wir alles erleben, ist todkrank und macht sich keine Illusionen über eine Heilung, sie weiß, dass sie irgendwann in absehbarer Zeit sterben wird. Sie ist genervt von ihrer Situation, will keine Sonderbehandlung und ist vor allem wütend auf ihre Lungen, dass auf die einfach absolut kein Verlass ist. Sie will nicht sterben, weiß aber auch nicht so recht, wieso sie eigentlich lebt, und in diesem Moment lernt sie Augustus kennen.
Augustus hat den Krebs vorübergehend besiegt und dabei ein Bein eingebüßt. Und er ist der Hauptgrund, wieso ich dieses Buch so grandios finde. Augustus, der selber so viel Schlimmes erlebt hat und allen Grund hätte, mit seinem Schicksal zu hadern, lebt sein Leben dermaßen frei und ungezwungen, dass ich mehr als einmal bewundert den Kopf schüttelte. Seine Art, die Dinge zu sehen und auszudrücken, sich vor allem Hazel gegenüber mitzuteilen, die am Anfang gar nicht davon begeistert ist, sich auf einen anderen Menschen einzulassen, ist herzergreifend und beeindruckend. Es macht richtig Mut mitanzusehen, wie er jeder noch so schrecklichen Situation mit einem schiefen Lächeln gegenübersteht und ihr etwas Gutes abgewinnen kann - auch wenn er natürlich keineswegs immun gegen Schmerz oder Trauer ist.
Hazel kann gar nicht anders, als sich in Augustus zu verlieben (wieso sollte es ihr auch anders gehen als mir?) und das ist der Moment, an dem das Schicksal zuschlägt, wenn auch anders, als man es erwartet hatte.

Die Sprecherin Kate Rudd macht einen ausgezeichneten Job, ich habe ihr nicht nur die 16jährige Hazel abgenommen, die so oft mit ihren Lungen kämpft und atemlos wirkt, sondern auch den etwas ernsteren Augustus, dessen schiefes Grinsen man förmlich hören konnte. Aber auch die oft erschöpften und liebenden Eltern von Hazel, der quengelige Isaac oder der depressive van Houten, ihnen allen verpasst Rudd ihre persönliche Note, ohne dabei übertrieben oder affektiert zu wirken.

The Fault in Our Stars ist wirklich beeindruckend. Ich habe viel gelacht, vor allem in der ersten Hälfte des Buchs. Danach kamen mir so viele Tränen, wie sonst bei keinem Buch bisher. Hazel und Augustus haben mich tief berührt und ihr Schicksal mag nicht fair erscheinen, aber was ist schon fair im Leben?

5 Sterne!

Teenager, Krebs, Liebe - komisch, berührend!

Mein Fazit:

THE FAULT IN OUR STARS erzählt mit viel Humor und Reife die Liebesgeschichte zwischen zwei Jugendlichen vor dem Hintergrund ihrer Krebserkrankung. Das geschieht mit viel Sarkasmus, mit viel Witz und grundehrlichem Gefühl. Die Krankheit und ihre Folgen werden in keiner Weise irgendwie beschönigt. Krebs ist grausam, und nichts anderes erlebt der Leser/Hörer hautnah mit. Er erlebt aber auch, wie tapfer zwei junge Menschen in dieser Situation ihren Weg gehen. Das tun sie wie ganz normale Teenager, aber letztendlich und gezwungenermaßen mit einer Reife und Offenheit, die sie zu etwas Besonderem macht.

Ein Buch, das erst zum Lachen bringt und dann – man ahnt es natürlich – sehr, sehr weh tut. Ein ehrliches Buch, das Hoffnung macht, Hoffnung zerstört und letztendlich eine einfache Botschaft parat hält: Diese Jugendlichen haben Krebs, und sie müssen sich mit viel schwerwiegenderen Themen auseinandersetzen als so mancher Erwachsene. Aber sie leben ihr Leben und möchten behandelt werden wie alle anderen auch.

In den USA steht THE FAULT IN OUR STARS seit mehreren Wochen auf Platz 1 der New York Times Bestseller Liste. Auch das ein Indiz für seine Qualität. Man kann nur hoffen, dass das (Hör)buch auch bald auf deutsch erscheint!

Zur Sprecherin:

Kate Rudd ist eine wunderbare Wahl für die Audio-Version von THE FAULT IN OUR STARS. Sie hat eine helle Stimme, der man die Sechzehnjährige abkauft, aber genau die zusätzliche Dimension von Reife, die aus der Geschichte heraus klingt. Wie Rudd die Dialoge zwischen den Teens oder Hazel und ihren Eltern abliefert, ist teils zum Brüllen komisch. Der lakonische, leicht schnoddrige Tonfall passt absolut zu Hazel, genauso wie ihre Unsicherheit, die Rudd immer wieder durchscheinen lässt. Auch den anderen Figuren drückt Rudd ihren Stempel auf: da ist der leicht knatschige Isaac, Hazel’s besorgte, sanfte Eltern, und natürlich Augustus, dessen ernstes ‘Hazel Grace’ zu Beginn jedes Gesprächs mit seiner Freundin zu einem geliebten Markenzeichen wird.
Rudd gelingt eine rundum stimmige Umsetzung der Ich-Erzählung. Wir folgen Hazel’s Gedankenwelt, sitzen in ihrem Kopf, mitten in ihren Emotionen, und kaufen Rudd das alles sofort ab. Klasse gemacht!

Love this book

Das Buch ist so berührend. Ich habe mir viele Stellen markiert. Es trifft nicht nur auf Jugendliche Krebs Patienten zu Sondern auch auf Erwachsene. Vieles was Hazel und Augustus sagen hörte ich von meiner Mutter die innerhalb von 8 Wochen an Krebs gestorben ist. sie war 49 Jahre alt.
