John Green Releases Limited Time Only Self Read ‘The Fault in Our Stars’ Audiobook
John Green has always maintained that he thinks that if you’re going to a young adult book, it should be by somebody who is not only a person who does that sort of thing as a profession, but also somebody who is better able to capture the voice of a 16-year-old. But fans want more of their favorite author. John Green has remained a public author who has lots of contact with his fans through his numerous YouTube videos beginning with his and his brother Hank’s Vlogbrothers channel. So Green has decided to produce an audiobook version of The Fault in Our Stars that will only be available for a limited time due to the few copies that will be sold.
Being sold on DFTBA records, the Green read version of the The Fault in Our Stars audiobook will only have 3,000 copies produced, so if this is something you want, you’ll have to move fast. It’s being priced at $40.
There’s more to this set than just the audiobook, however. According to the DFTBA records listing page, all of this is included:
– Six CDs of me reading The Fault in Our Stars.
– One DVD including eight bonus videos in which I discuss themes from the book, visit settings, talk about different inspirations, and explore the ways the nerdfighter community shaped (and made possible) the story I ended up writing.
– A wristband for The Hectic Glow, a band so beautifully underground that they don’t even exist. (light blue, different from those received in 1st edition box sets)
– An awesome concert ticket for The Hectic Glow, a concert so epic that it never technically occurred.
– Four TFiOS-themed postcards designed by nerdfighters that you can send to your friend to brag that you own the John Green-narrated audiobook and they don’t.
– Also, all 3,000 copies are–get this–UNSIGNED.
If you love The Fault in Our Stars this is a collectors item you’ll want to get your hands on. With the other, Kate Rudd read version always available, you can’t be sure this will ever be for sale again. There will be no digital version so you’ll have to buy this hard copy if you want it.
