One of the first books i read on my Kindle.

It is, funnily enough, a short story (as it says in the title) about Hana (also... kinda says in the title).

It isn't particularly long, and doesn't reveal anything relatively important for the delirium sequel (Pandemonium). But its a nice little story that serves in bringing us back to the world of delirium, to remind us, no doubt, to buy Pandemonium.

I won't say what happens, since its short, and anything i can possibly say would be a spoier, not that there is much of a plot. But for 99p (the same price as, say... um... some pokemon cards! Why not!?).

If you were a fan of Delirium (or a huge fan, like me!) Then this story is interesting, and has a little revealment that shines some light on the happenings of Delirium. Well, its not a SHOCKING revelation, but it fits). But as i said, it isnt a revelation that we necessarily NEED to know.

But it IS a pleasant short (i mean short) story. (I'm making good use of the brackets in this review). If you're not a fan of delirium, this short story is definitely not for you. If you don't want to spend 99p on it, don't bother.

So that leaves us with why SHOULD you buy it.
1. If you are a fan.
2. If you are getting impatient waiting for the sequel.
3. If you have 99p to spare.
4. If you have a Kindle. (Assuming it's a Kindle only book. Which i think it is).
5. If you liked the character Hana.

In all, satisfying short story, with a slight reveal at the end. (You might find the reveal a bit more of a shocker than me, i don't know. And there's the brackets again)

That is all ;)

Who is Hana? In Lauren Oliver's "Delirium," she's the best friend of the protagonist Lena, in a dystopian world where love is "cured."

And while the short story "Hana" is not quite as gripping as "Delirium," it is a riveting little look inside the mind of a teenage girl who embraces amor deliria nervosa... and discovers that pain and heartbreak can come from love as well. And it fleshes out the character of Hana considerably, letting us see why she does what she does.

Hana is a wild girl. She's scheduled for the procedure in the fall, and has been matched to the mayor's handsome son, but she has a secret life her parents haven't even dreamed of. She's madly in love with a boy from her school, and she loves to sneak away and immerse herself in wild underground parties filled with dancing, music and passion.

But soon Hana's wild hidden world starts to fall apart. Her life becomes consumed with fear of being caught and forced through the procedure, and she discovers that the boy she's been crushing on doesn't share her feelings. And when she finally goes to see her old friend Lena, she makes a devastating discovery that will change everything.

It's not strictly necessary to read "Delirium" before reading "Hana" -- you get a pretty good idea of how this world works right from the beginning. However, it's probably best to read Lauren Oliver's full-length books along with this, because it ends on a major cliffhanger that promises to disrupt everything in Hana and Lena's lives.

And the story really fleshes out Hana, who merely seemed like a rebellious rich kid who's scared to really risk it all in "Delirium.

I have to admit I don't always read the "in between" books such as this one but as a fan of Lauren Oliver, I had to read this one, the more I thought about it the more I wanted to know what had been going on with Hana during Lena's story with Alex. I read this in one go as I just didn't want to put it down! I really enjoyed seeing what Hana had been up to, and seeing things from Hana's prospective too. I have already read Pandemonium (I was so lucky that Lauren Oliver sent me an ARC to review). So some would say by reading Delirium and then Pandemonium and then Hana I kind of read Hana out of the order it was meant to be in, but it really didn't matter, I truly enjoyed it. I slipped straight back into Delirium, and what had happened when etc. Lauren Oliver writes so well you just slide straight through the story with such ease she just carries you along with her and the book. This book made me want book three all the more.... and also made me wonder if we could have a short book like Hana but from Alex's point of view perhaps it could go along and tell us what happens to him when Lena makes it over the fence? or maybe we could have a spin off book telling us all about what's happened to Lena's mother and her story? I honestly cannot get enough of this series of books, I would really like more, more, more please!
So did I enjoy the book/novella? Yes, so much I would dearly love more of them! Would I recommend it? Yes I would, you could read the series without reading this novella but this novella really adds even more to the story so I recommend reading it too.

As a massive fan of Delirium I couldn't wait to get hold of Hana's story. In this novella we see some of the main events of Delirium through Hana's eyes giving us a different perspective on things. The story is beautifully written as I would expect of anything from Lauren Oliver and there is a surprising twist at the end but I would have liked it to be longer. We don't really learn much in this story that we didn't already know from the first book apart from the ending which I can't say more about without giving spoilers.

I wouldn't recommend reading this story before Delirium as it would definitely give you spoilers but this is a nice short story to keep you going until Pandemonium comes out in March. It also contains the first few chapters of Pandemonium so you can get a sneak peek of what happens to Lena next. If you haven't already read Delirium it's a book I'd highly recommend it was one of my favourite YA dystopians of 2011.
