Book Summary
Lauren Oliver’s riveting, original digital story set in the world of her New York Times bestseller Delirium.

The summer before they’re supposed to be cured of the ability to love, best friends Lena and Hana begin to drift apart. While Lena shies away from underground music and parties with boys, Hana jumps at her last chance to experience the forbidden. For her, the summer is full of wild music, dancing—and even her first kiss.

But on the surface, Hana must be a model of perfect behavior. She meets her approved match, Fred Hargrove, and glimpses the safe, comfortable life she’ll have with him once they marry. As the date for her cure draws ever closer, Hana desperately misses Lena, wonders how it feels to truly be in love, and is simultaneously terrified of rebelling and of falling into line.

In this digital story that will appeal to fans of Delirium and welcome new admirers to its world, readers will come to understand scenes from Delirium through Hana’s perspective. Hana is a touching and revealing look at a life-changing and tumultuous summer.

Book Review

Rating: 4/5

Hana is a short fantastic novella about Lena’s best friend and her adventure all through the Delirium timeframe. This book is not really that incredible, however, it somehow served as teaser for his fans who are waiting for the release of Pandemonium. After reading Hana, it made me crave more for the upcoming book and wishing it would be February soon.

Lauren Oliver has always written exceptionally. I have loved the books since Before I Fall and I expect a lot from the second book of the Delirium Series. Anyway, Hana is a remarkable character since in the first book in the series, Lena is always talking about her beauty and confidence. But, when Hana speaks, you will notice how uncertain she is. She’s not really sure of what to do and doesn’t let herself to succumb to the ‘disease’ the way that Lena does. This book made me love Lena’s POV in the main novels more.

This book may not be that mind-blowing and to-swoon over but I will recommend this for anyone who loves Delirium and waiting for its sequel Pandemonium.
