  • "FANTASTIC **********"

    Overall

    This may well be teen fiction but I am 33 years old and loved this.



    It took a bit of geting used to, a world without love where love is banned and religion and life has been re-written. I guess you do spend most of the book desperately wanting Lana to "see the light" so it can be frustrating at times, but the book is about her journey and as it's a trilogy the story is about her development and change.



    It's a good idea for a story, and I like the change from the current endless Vampires, ghosts, witches, angels, fairies in books... It's a futuristic life story and a clever idea. It's very American as is the narration, but it's well worth a listen and certainly took the bore out of my comute.

    They say that the cure for love will make me happy and safe forever. And I've always believed them. Until now. Now everything has changed. Now, I'd rather be infected with love for the tiniest sliver of a second than live a hundred years suffocated by a lie. There was a time when love was the most important thing in the world. People would go to the end of the earth to find it. They would tell lies for it. Even kill for it. Then, at last, they found the cure.

  • "Brilliant Book"

    Overall

    Firstly I would like to say that I am not a "young adult" I am 33 years old. I loved this book.



    You have to have read the first book Delirium, which is also very good.



    The characters have depth, which is good as you feel you get to undertand them a bit. The story goes from 'Then' to 'Now' chapter to chapter which at first is frustrating but after a while works well.



    Lana is a little frustrating as at times I find her dull and a bit stupid. I know the main character is only 18 but I find it hard to think of this book as a teen book as some of the issues and violence are very much adult themes. There is a lot of death in the book which fits in with the serious story line.



    I was hooked to this audio and when it ended I was disappointed the next book is not yet released. The cliff hanger at the end was obvious to me, but maybe not to all, certainly made you want to know the next story.



    A great book. thanks.

    Love, the deadliest of all deadly things. It kills you when you have it. And when you don't. I'm pushing aside the memory of my nightmare, pushing aside thoughts of Alex, pushing aside thoughts of Hana and my old school, push, push, push, like Raven taught me to do. The old life is dead. But the old Lena is dead too. I buried her. I left her beyond a fence, behind a wall of smoke and flame.

  • The Fault in Our Stars

    "Wonderful Story!"

    Overall

    This audiobook is one of those audios that stays with you long after you stop listening. John Green adds a dash of brilliance to the genre of young adult fiction and this book is deceptively mature. The audio format was great for it and the characters brought to life by the narrator. I have gone back to it several times, over the past few weeks and it has become one of my favourite finds on audible. More John Green please!

    Eleanor is the new girl in town, and she's never felt more alone. All mismatched clothes, mad red hair and chaotic home life, she couldn't stick out more if she tried. Then she takes the seat on the bus next to Park. Quiet, careful and - in Eleanor's eyes - impossibly cool, Park's worked out that flying under the radar is the best way to get by. Slowly, steadily, through late-night conversations and an ever-growing stack of mix tapes, Eleanor and Park fall in love. They fall in love the way you do the first time, when you're 16, and you have nothing and everything to lose.

    An utterly gripping thriller from best-selling author Lauren Oliver. Panic began as so many things do in Carp, a poor town of 12,000 people in the middle of nowhere: because it was summer, and there was nothing else to do. Heather never thought she would compete in panic, a legendary game played by graduating seniors, where the stakes are high and the payoff is even higher. She'd never thought of herself as fearless, the kind of person who would fight to stand out. But when she finds something, and someone, to fight for, she will discover that she is braver than she ever thought.
