{Audiobook} Review: The Fault in Our Stars


The Fault in Our Stars
by John Green
Genre: Realistic Fiction, Contemporary Fiction, Romance
Date Read: 21 April 2014
Reading with my ears
Narrator: Kate Rudd
Unabridged audio - Length: 7 hours 14 minutes

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.

My thoughts:
I have been putting off reading this book for months.  It is such a touchy subject for me.  I am currently going through chemo therapy and I was afraid of what might lie within the pages of the book.  I have done enough crying.  I was worried what would be done with such a serious subject.   Would it be too morbid, would it be too sentimental . . . ?

But now, after having read it, I can honestly say that I enjoyed it so much.  Even if I am not a teenager anymore, I could identify with the characters - a lot of their feelings are my feelings too.  I even had a few moments when I had to laugh out loud.  It is all so true!  Yes, life goes on even with cancer Smile

There is not much that I can say that has not been said before, so I will leave it with my few personal thought above.

I can’t wait to see the movie.

  1. Sorry to hear about your struggle and that you are having to endure the chemo. But I am glad that you still enjoyed this book. I laughed as much as I cried I think.

  2. I cried too much reading this book. Cancer is personal to me too and it was hard. Although I would like to check the movie out, I am not looking forward to more crying, so I will probably stay put. Looking forward to your thoughts!

  3. It's good that you can identify yourself with the book. It's always good when you can relate to a book. I hope you stay strong through your chemo! :)
