Revue de presse

“Oliver makes a white-knuckle return to realism that will have readers up until the wee hours.” (Kirkus Reviews (starred review))

“Oliver’s novel is a wholly believable and compulsively readable tale of friendship, loyalty, survival, and courage.” (Booklist)

Praise for Before I Fall:“Oliver’s debut novel is raw, emotional, and, at times, beautiful....readers will love Samantha best as she hurtles toward an end as brave as it is heartbreaking.” (Publishers Weekly (starred review))

Praise for Before I Fall:“Samantha’s attempts to save her life and right the wrongs she has caused are precisely what will draw readers into this complex story and keep them turning pages until Sam succeeds in living her last day the right way.” (Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA) (Starred Review))

Praise for Before I Fall:“Oliver, in a pitch-perfect teen voice, explores the power we have to affect the people around us in this intensely believable first novel...This is a compelling book with a powerful message and should not be missed.” (ALA Booklist)

Praise for Before I Fall:“This story races forward, twisting in a new direction every few pages, its characters spinning my emotions from affection to frustration, anger to compassion. You’ll have no choice but to tear through this book!” (Jay Asher, author of the New York Times bestseller Thirteen Reasons Why)

Praise for Before I Fall:“Before I Fall is smart, complex, and heartbreakingly beautiful. Lauren Oliver has written an extraordinary debut novel about what it means to live—and die.” (Carolyn Mackler, author of the Printz Honor Book The Earth, My Butt, and Other Big, Round Things)

Praise for Delirium:“In [Oliver’s] dystopian America, love has been outlawed as the life-threatening source of all discord. Lena’s gradual awakening is set against a convincing backdrop of totalitarian horror. The abrupt ending leaves enough unanswered questions to set breathless readers up for volume two of this trilogy.” (Kirkus Reviews (starred review))

Praise for Delirium:“Strong characters, a vivid portrait of the lives of teens in a repressive society, and nagging questions that can be applied to our world today make this book especially compelling and discussable.” (School Library Journal (starred review))

Praise for Delirium:“In a thick climate of fear, Oliver spins out a suspenseful story of awakening and resistance with true love at its core.” (The Horn Book)

Praise for Delirium:“Oliver’s deeply emotional and incredibly well-honed prose commands the readers’ attention and captures their hearts. With a pulse-pounding tempo and unforeseen twists and turns, Lauren Oliver has opened the door on a fantastic new series; the second book can’t come soon enough.” (New York Journal of Books)

Praise for PANDEMONIUM:“From the grief-stricken shell of her former self to a nascent refugee and finally to a full-fledged resistance fighter, Lena’s strength and the complexity of her internal struggles will keep readers up at night.” (Kirkus Reviews (starred review))

Praise for PANDEMONIUM:“This is a romance in the purest of senses, where just the longing for the faintest taste of love is worth the greatest of risks. Like all successful second volumes, this expands the world and ups the stakes, setting us up for the big finale.” (ALA Booklist)

Praise for PANDEMONIUM:“If...you crave the heart-stopping action of the arena from The Hunger Games combined with a destined-to-be-doomed love story then this sequel is perfect for you!” (Seventeen.com)

Praise for PANDEMONIUM:“Following directly on the heels of Delirium, Pandemonium is equally riveting. The underlying theme that love will win out regardless of prohibition is a powerful idea that will speak to teens.” (School Library Journal)

Praise for Requiem:“Before starting, readers should turn off their cellphones and wipe their schedules clean, because once they open the book, they won’t be able to stop. A dystopian tour de force.” (Kirkus Reviews (starred review))

Praise for Requiem:“Is there a theme more perfect for YA readers than choosing what you want from life rather than being told?” (ALA Booklist)

Présentation de l'éditeur

From New York Times bestselling author Lauren Oliver comes an extraordinary novel of fear, friendship, courage, and hope.

Panic began as so many things do in Carp, a dead-end town of twelve-thousand 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.

Dodge has never been afraid of Panic. His secret will fuel him, and get him all the way through the game, he s sure of it. But what he doesn t know is that he s not the only one with a secret. Everyone has something to play for.

For Heather and Dodge, the game will bring new alliances, unexpected revelations, and the possibility of first love for each of them-and the knowledge that sometimes the very things we fear are those we need the most.

Already optioned by Universal Pictures in a major deal, this gritty, spellbinding novel captures both the raw energy of fear mixed with excitement, as well as the aching need to find a place to belong.

Again, Lauren Oliver delivers a very good story, well written and quite unusual.
I really liked the characters, their insecurities and imperfections made them real to me.

Panic 10 mars 2014
Par Lauren - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
I was so excited to get an eARC of Panic; Lauren Oliver is by far one of my favorite authors and after Requiem being my most anticipated book of 2013, I was itching to get wrapped up in another one of her stories.

My first impression of Panic was surprise honestly. I have no idea why I thought this, but I was shocked that this was a contemporary! For some reason I thought it was another dystopian so I was actually pleasantly surprised to find out it was a contemporary!

Panic is a game that seniors play the summer after they graduate. It’s risky, scary and basically all about what it says … Panic. The story is told in dual point of views, Heather’s and Dodge’s. They are both competing in Panic and both for very different reasons.

I had a very, very hard time with these characters. It took me a long time to warm up to Heather, I didn’t find her unlikable exactly but I found her bland and boring. I eventually did start to like her and her relationship with her younger sister was endearing and lovely. Her decision-making was completely askew although I supposed that could be accounted for her terrible home life. Dodge, I didn’t like, and I didn’t ever end up liking him. He was completely warped. Because he was so messed up, even when he did somewhat nice things, I couldn’t warm up to him at all. Natalie, Heather’s best friend was selfish and Bishop, her other best friend was probably the most likeable character of all. He wasn’t a favorite of mine, and I will most likely forget I liked him in the future but while I was reading I did enjoy him. I think one of the most difficult things about these characters is that they all had an incredibly poor moral compass. Every single one of them had such poor judgement, the decisions and situations they were in unbelievable. I won’t go into detail because a lot of it had to do with Panic but honestly, I found it extremely hard to believe that you would put yourself into some of these life threatening situations for money.

The story itself however drew me in immediately. I can’t even pinpoint what it was other than pure curiosity to see how the story would end. I was entirely into this story until the very last page, the game Panic, while absolutely ridiculous was also equally thrilling. On of my main dislikes about the book though was the predictability. I could see where the story was going before it got there, and only the final few pages had me unsure of what would happen.

Another aspect that turned me off from loving this book, and this is upon reflection the following days, is the memorability. Unfortunatly for me Panic, and the thrill that I felt when reading it, especially in the last few chapters… went away. It is almost forgettable. I actually could not remember if there were two POV’s or three POV’s, I had to go back to my Kindle to doublecheck! When I finished Panic, I knew this was going to be one that I would have to mull over before writing my review or rating it and ultimately, after my excitement died down, I didn’t love it as much as I expected to. I find this is a trend for Lauren Oliver books with me: I get so entirely swept up with her writing, her prose and her stories that when I finish, it’s like I’m mixed up. I thought I hated Delirium when I finished it, then after a bit of reflection, I realized I was in LOVE with it… that’s how strong the emotion was. Before I Fall, I finished and was an emotional wreck but thought I loved it… and then days later I found a lot of things I didn’t love. Now obviously this practice didn’t go entirely in Panic’s favor however it does attest to Oliver’s writing. She’s a beautiful writer and her stories are captivating when your reading them.

Despite my issues with Panic, it was a really good story. It was thrilling when it needed to be, had an interesting and unique concept and had me clinging onto the story until the very last word.

Exciting story, but ridiculously unbelievable premise -- and a dangerous message for teens 3 avril 2014
Par Kathy Cunningham - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit ( De quoi s'agit-il? )
Lauren Oliver's PANIC is a gripping YA thriller about a crazy summer contest among high school seniors in the little town of Carp, New York. Supposedly this contest - called "Panic" - has been going on in Carp for decades. All through their senior year, Carp students must pay a dollar a day into the pot, which will later be used to pay the two secret judges and the eventual contest winner. Anyone who objects to shelling out the cash is subjected to intimidation, threats, and physical abuse. Any senior can play, and the competitions are dangerous and life-threatening. People get hurt playing Panic. And they die.

The story itself focuses on two Panic contestants, Heather Nill and Dodge Mason. Heather wasn't planning to play Panic, but when her boyfriend breaks up with her, she figures she has nothing to lose. Dodge says he wants the prize money (over $60,000), but he has other reasons more complex and devious. Oliver's novel follows the course of the contest as Heather and Dodge, along with their friends Nat Velez and Bishop Marks, try to survive an increasingly terrifying series of stunts that could very well cost them their lives.

For PANIC to work, the reader must be able to suspend disbelieve, and that's not easy. This isn't some post-apocalyptic world where teenagers routinely challenge each other to the death. This isn't HUNGER GAMES! This is plain old ordinary small-town New York, where a bunch of recent high school grads are willing to risk everything for the chance at a wad of cash. This contest has supposedly been going on for a very long time, which is in itself difficult to believe. Carp's high school seniors are strong-armed into paying a daily tribute to finance Panic, but no one at the school seems to know anything about it. How is that possible? How can class after class of seniors be brow-beaten into paying up without teachers, administrators, and parents ever finding out? And what about the police? People routinely end up in the hospital because of Panic, and some even die! Here, the Carp police do raid one of the competitions, and people are questioned, but nothing comes of it. It's as if the police are in on it, too - which would have made more sense. If this competition actually goes on every summer - and has gone on every summer for years and years - then there's no way it could be kept secret. And there's no way the adults in the town of Carp would have let it continue.

Additionally, there's something disturbing about how this novel ends. Some reviewers have called it a "happy ending," and in some ways it is. The four primary characters find romance, at least. But none of them seems to understand that the stupid game they are playing is horribly wrong! There is an uncomfortable sense, at the end of PANIC, that the winner of this thing actually does win something. And that's a dangerous message for teenagers. At least in HUNGER GAMES it's clear that no one ever really wins.

On one level, PANIC is more realistic than many YA novels these days. Heather and Dodge have very difficult lives, with family situations that are challenging and difficult to deal with. Heather's mother is a drunk with little regard for either Heather or her twelve-year-old sister Lily. And Dodge's older sister was paralyzed in an earlier Panic competition, leaving both of them angry, bitter, and vengeful. Had PANIC better addressed the dangers of revenge, or if it had made some sort of a comment about the insanity of crazy teenage behavior, it would have been more successful. But it does neither. Whatever happens to Heather, Dodge, and their friends, there's little doubt Panic will continue to obsess the teenagers in Carp, New York. The game will go on. And that's genuinely scary.

There's no doubt PANIC is an exciting read. But it's not a good novel for teens. By the final page I was asking myself what Oliver's point really was. Is it worth risking your life - and the lives of your friends - for money? Even with a good reason it isn't. Heather, especially, has a real and understandable need for money, but getting it this way is just wrong. And any game that results in pain, suffering, and death can't be a good idea. Somewhere in all the teenage angst that part gets lost. And that's too bad.

Wonderful YA Read 4 mars 2014
Par Farrah - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Thrilling, unpredictable, and full of secrets, Panic was a fantastic YA read. I really enjoyed reading this fantastic book. Absolutely wonderful!

Panic was a game that came about from a group of bored teenagers. And, from there, it became a dangerous tradition that resulted in injuries and deaths. Every summer, the recent high school graduates complete in a series of challenges. Over the 4 years of high school, every student would contribute money to create the winning prize amount. The seniors would go through dangerous tasks, each eliminating more and more players, until the winner was chosen to win the money. All the while, two anonymous judges set the challenges and chose the winners. The whole situation that Lauren Oliver created was flawless. I could imagine that sort of thing happening in a small town full of bored teenagers. It was flawlessly built into a thrilling game that had me on the edge of my seat.

The story is told through the main characters, Heather and Dodge, in alternating perspectives, so I'll focus on the narrators first.
Heather was a tough chick. She didn't have the best situation at home and she wanted to win the money so that she could take care of her sister and get her away from her neglectful mother. She was strong, determined, and extremely dedicated to caring for her loved ones. I really liked her. She was definitely a worthy heroine.

Dodge was a little sketchy at first. He wanted to win Panic as a means for revenge and he was quite ruthless about it at first. But, then his priorities shifted and it no longer became about winning, but about making sure he and his friends survived the games. I liked him. He was sweet and loyal to those he cared about. And he proved himself as a worthy character with what he did at the end. I thought he was great.

The other two important characters were Bishop and Nat, Heather's friends. There were two separate romantic relationships: one between Bishop and Heather, and one between Dodge and Nat.
Bishop was so sweet. I totally adored him. He was dedicated to protecting his loved ones and that meant he would do anything to protect Heather. He wasn't all sunshine, though, he had a dark side and quite a few secrets that I never saw coming. But, that only made me like him more. I thought he was wonderful.

Nat, on the other hand, got on my nerves. She was mean. She lied, manipulated, insulted, and was somehow forgiven for it every time. I'm not sure why Dodge even liked her after the way she played him. She had her good moments, but I still didn't like her.

The romance was very light. The story was really focused on the games, but the little bit of romance that did appear was sweet.

The plot was well paced. I was kept interested the entire way through, though there were some parts that dragged a little. What I really love about Lauren Oliver's books is her ability to write so lyrically. Her writing itself was just gorgeous. The story was thrilling and the scenes of the challenges had me on the edge of my seat. I really enjoyed the story and I thought the ending was lovely.

Panic was a wonderful YA read. It was thrilling, unpredictable, and full of surprises. I really enjoyed reading this fantastic book. Lovers of YA, this is a book you'll want to check out.

Just not believable 26 mars 2014
Par Sash & Em: A Tale of Two Bookies - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
This book was crazy. I mean, legitimately C-R-A-Z-Y. Could I get behind the premise (kids in a tournament of who is the most insane/willing to do INSANE stuff)? YES. However..

I just didn’t have the suspension of disbelief to enjoy this book. Maybe I’m looking at it from my Mid-20′s-”I remember when NSYNC was cool”-I’m old- glasses. But the fact of the matter is that there is absolutely no way that these kids would have been able to get away with some of the stuff they pulled. It just wasn’t believable – too much was coincidental and I knew how this book was going to end at the 40% mark. And I love Lauren Olivier’s writing but this one had too many immature metaphors for my liking.

Maybe I’m too old to enjoy this type of young Young Adult? Have you read this book? Did you like it?

Strong Standalone 4 mars 2014
Par Andi S. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
I first read Panic in September of 2013. A friend had a copy and let me borrow it because I was beyond excited for a new Lauren Oliver book. I basically devoured it and when I was done I had mixed feelings. I wasn't sure if I liked the book, hated the book or was just meh on it. Basically I was disappointed. You see, Lauren Oliver's Delirium series is my favorite of hers. As much as I loved Before I Fall, Delirium holds a special place in my heart. And when Panic was nothing like it I was bummed. As months passed and I read a bunch more books I started to realize I wasn't really fair to Panic. I judged it on an idea in my head, a measure it couldn't live up to, and decided I needed to give it the chance it deserved and reread it. Trust me people, it was the best decision I've made in a long time. Panic is pretty wonderful on its own and definitely deserves the time of day from me.

Basically Panic is the story of a game that is played in middle of nowhere New York with all the graduating seniors eligible to enter. Each round posses a new threat/challenge that presses on fears. The story is told from two POVs, Heather, a girl that never planned to enter, and Dodge, a guy that has been dreaming of this moment for a long time. Both characters have their own reasons and motivations for continuing on with the game even as things get dangerous. As they navigate the game, friendships, family life, and love, Heather and Dodge find out how strong they are and what is really a cause for Panic.

First and foremost, Lauren Oliver has some of the most beautiful writing in YA literature. She knows how to get her reader involved into a story and how to keep them reading. She writes in a way that gets you emotionally invested even if you don't really want to be. She did it in Before I Fall and in Delirium and once again in Panic. I think this is because of the characters she develops. Heather was a really likable a character. She had faults and insecurities and hopes like any other 18 year old girl. She had her best guy friend Bishop, her best girl friend Natalie, and her sister Lily and they all made her who she was. But she was also afraid for anything good to happen to her as she was used to things being crap. Then you have Dodge, the silent guy that no one knew. Classmate that was the quiet guy everyone thought was weird. He had not many friends, a sister in a wheelchair and a mom trying to make ends meat. He would do anything for his family and was by playing panic. These two characters were so far from being alike that you couldn't help being invested in both of them and that was mainly why I found the book more enjoyable this time around.

Why is this 4 stars instead of 5 you may be wondering. The truth, I had some problems with the actual game of panic itself. That was the part that I found unbelievable and what brought this story down some for me. A lot of it just felt too convenient and just used to move the plot further along. It felt very detached from a lot that was going on for me like it was a separate story all together and not 100% connected to some of the other stuff that was happening. I get that it was used to show how far these characters were willing to go and that makes sense, but something was just slightly off to me.

But honestly it is rare that I will reread a book that I didn't love the first time I read it. I'm just not that kind of readers that gives second chances easily. But something in my gut told me not to give up in Panic and I'm glad I didn't. It was different and intense and an interesting look at a small town social experiment. It was definitely no Delirium. But after reading it a second time, I'm okay with that. What do you have for us next Ms. Oliver? I'll be waiting in anticipation.
