The Fault in Our Stars by John Green tells a beautiful story about two tweens who fall in love, both of whom happen to have cancer. The Fault in Our Stars easily could have been a sad story, but what really shines is the story of teens just wanting a normal life. Gus and Hazel's message is clear they don't want to be considered as "other". Gus wants to give Hazel her wish of meeting her favorite author. The entire time I was listening to the audio book I laughed, smiled, and swooned for Augustus. I will say that, yes, cancer is a tough subject and there are sad moments, but overall the story is brilliant! I hope everyone picks up this book.
Audio Book: The Fault in Our Stars is read by Kate Rudd. Earlier this year I listed to Beneath the Glitter a novel narrated by Kate Rudd and I really disliked her style. Luckily when I started listening to The Fault in Our Stars I had no idea it was the same narrator. Slowly, the way she said certain phrases or words Kate's voice started to sound familiar so I looked it up and yes this was the same narrator! So imagine my surprise when I decided I liked the way she narrated The Fault in Our Stars. I think Kate really becomes Hazel and she makes the character come to life.
