Delirium Stories: Hana, Annabel, and Raven
Though I did wish they used the flowers on the novella covers of Hana, Annabel and Raven instead of Delirum/Pandemonium/Requiem.
I made one for fun (because I especially like the flowers on Raven <3)
This is a book that has the 3 off shoots in the Delirium trilogy. It is the short stories about 3 of the main characters in this series ~~ Hana, Annabel and Raven. It has been some time since I have read Delirium and I used this short book as a reminder of the story and to hopefully bring me up to speed allowing me to read the last ...more
Yes, you read that right. One half and I give her that simply because I like her writing style. BUT, there is no need for these stories.
I have trouble with this series as I feel the world-building is so slight that I still have no idea why the world works as it does or why the government outlawed love. I could understand outlawing hate or envy, but why do away with love? Kindly explain this.
So, since this world is, for me anyway, so nebulous and murky, I thought to be fair that I sh ...more
Annabel: Esta historia me gusto un montón! Nos revela información que no sabíamos de la madre de Lena, cosas anteriores y durante Delirium. En Delirium se habla cobre la madre de Lena pero no se cuenta mucha cosa en especifico, y esta bueno que acá te revele mas. Es un personaje que me gusta bastante, porque siempre lucho porque lo que quería y por su ...more
I found Annabel's story the most interesting of the three, and I thought that Hana's was the most boring one. I really didn't learn anything new about her character.
I really like Raven as a character, and though her story gave more insight into her character, it was just pointless.
I feel like for me to love a novella, I have to be really REALLY invested in a ship involved, or I need sign ...more
i am reviewing this book by parts!
if i were to rate it as only one short story, i'll give it a star out of five. why?
hana's story was entirely unnecessary. why again? because in her short story, there was nothing new that i could discover. its just that the story is just some snippets of delirium in her POV. #boring
Annabel Halloway is a bad ass girl when she was in her adolescence. a rebel to be precise. she has this spirit where she never loses hope eventhough the wo ...more
I didn't expect the twist in Hana's story but I like the way in which the author dealt with it, as well as the poetic and beautiful writing.
The let down of this novella, (as many seem to agree), is Raven's part. It was confusing and her story seemed all over the place. Hence, it brought down this entire novella as it was the last c ...more
Three pivotal characters, three unique novellas.
Like I do with these novella anthologies, I will compile all my Delirium novella reviews into this review to save virtual shelf space and keep things organised.
This is told in Hana’s POV and covers the summer before she is cured, before Lena escapes to the Wilds.
Hana is one of those girls who is carefree and wild, wanting to live life to the fullest before it is taken away from her. I really love her voice. It’s fun and bubbly but al ...more
Okay. Well, when this first came out I was so excited to get my hands on it. And when I did, I tore through the book. Mainly because I haven't read any of the three novella's before. I was never really too fond of ebooks so... Anyway,I was pleased to hear from a different mind, other than Lena's. But I do love Lena. And this review is free of spoiler... Depe ...more
Its been two days and I can finally put my thoughts and emotions into words.
Hana: 4 stars
I wasn't to thrilled with this section. I felt there wasn't much to be learned from her part. I did enjoy her perspective though of that last summer. I could feel her jealousy rising, bubbling to the surface and than... finally breaking. (view spoiler)[ betraying her very best friend in the end. And ultimately breaking her own heart by doing so. ...more
It was interesting seeing things from Hana's POV, especially since she is the one who you expect to rebel against society. I've never really been a fan of her character in general and while I did somewhat feel for her, I hated her actions toward the end. 2.5 Stars
I liked A ...more
I really liked Annabel's story. It answered some of the questions I had about her. Also, her story was very well-written. I wish it would have been a little longer.
Raven's story made me so sad! I had no idea what she'd gone through, even at the end. It was rea...more
4.5 stars, rather than 5, as obviously, it was without Lena and Alex, who is really the main point of the books, and my favourite characters.
BUT, I absolutely adore Hana, and to hear her story from her POV before the events of Delirium was wonderful, and I still love her, regardless of the events that followed afterwards. It turns out that Hana was just as misunderstood as Lena.
And wow, Annabel's chapter was perfect ...more
Lugesin lühijutte peale sarja lõpetamist, kuid see oleks sobinud paremini lugeda enne viimast osa, sest Raveni lugu avalda ühe olulise detaili, mida ko ...more
No es una mala historia, pero no pasa mucho interesante.
Solo sabes como contrajo Annabel "la enfermedad" su escape del pabellón 6, etc.
Ahora entiendo de donde saco Lena ese carácter.
Esta historia es tan abdjsjakfhs*-*
Cuenta la historia de Hana antes de Pandemonium. Sigo en shock! El final te produce una sensación de odio y repulsión tan grande:@
Todo son flores hasta el ultimo renglón "Im sorry..."
Lo recomiendo totalmente porque este libro es la pieza que falta para completar ...more
Principalmente annabel y raven, desde que me entere que Hana había ''traicionado'' por así decirlo, a Lena le tuve mucho rencor a Hana por haber hecho eso.
La historia de Raven me pareció un poco trágica porque ella murió y estaba esperando un bebé aunque el amor de Tack y Raven eran muy notable lo empece a notar en réquiem y en Raven mis dudas fueron aclaradas pero me dio mucho dolor saber que ella estaba embarazada y murió, no era justo que muriera pero ya conocemos a laure ...more
Annabel is such a strong and patient woman. I wanted to be like her. I want to know I can wait for the things I want to achieve and have the strength to pursue it.
Oh Raven! You're such a good friend. Thank you for standing up for Lena til the end. :)
If you don't want the Delirium series to end just yet, this book of novellas is a fun thing to read.
