Overview

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.

This was a great, quick read to go along with Delirium and Pandemonium. It really got you into Hana's head and helped you understand her character. Do I agree with all her choices? Of course not, but I can see how the pain of being used and jealousy led her to think she did the right thing. It may have made my respect for her character lessen, but I definitely do not hate her character. I just think she has been through things that have hurt her, is a confused teenage girl who just had trouble differentiating between right amd wrong, and who was having trouble adjusting to change in her life. She acted as many teenage girls would under conflicting pressures from society's standards and personal morals. I hope there will be another novella about what happened to Hana during the events of Pandemonium. I have my assumptions, but I would enjoy another look from Hana's perspective.

It was interesting to finally see things from Hana's point of giew. I loved her character in delirium. After reading this though it shows you never know what someone is thinking. Hana is a lost selfish little girl. What her jealously led to inthe end is still so shocking. At least it answers why she didnt leave with Lena and Alex.

It was interesting to see the story from Hana's POV. This read was a good addition to the series, short but not so sweet in the end. Prepare to be stunned with the reveal of a small detail of Lauran Oliver's first book of the series, Delirium. Oliver's, or should i say Hana's, little secret that is presented in the end of this short story is; relevant, very exciting and yet heartbreaking. Ahhh i can't believe it, i never would have guessed. Jealousy is a deadly thing.

To say that I loved Delirium would be an understatement. So, when I heard that Lauren Oliver was writing a short story of Delirium from Hana's (Lena's best friend) perspective, I was ecstatic. Oliver did not disappoint. From her rhythmic, poetic prose to the heart-stopping ending, it was all there. I highly recommend checking out this easy, quick read before delving into Delirium's sequel, Pandemonium. It will fill in some holes naturally there due to first-person perspective, break your heart just a little more, and leave you clambering for the next installment.

Wow. Just wow. I was not expecting this! SPOILER ALERT! This was an amazing story. I had really already expected hana to go to all of those parties but still! She was wild. When lena starts dating alex i understand hanas jealousy but she could have any boy she wanted really. She has a match and its not like she wanted to catch the deliria and run away. She just wanted a normal life and to be happy. Atleast she had a good match because lena didnt. But at the end when i read those three words "im sorry lena" all i could think was NOOOOOOO! I still cant believe that hana would turn lena in. But i dont think it was only jealousy. Hana also wanted lena to have a happy safe CURED life. But still. Im sorry, Lena.

I love that Lauren Oliver writes these side stories. In the character development of Hana, I NEVER saw this ending coming. Those who don't read this will miss an essential part to this amazing trilogy! I am beyond shocked!

I thought Hana was a completely different person. I wonder what Lena would think of what Hana does due to jealousy...

Really, not worth buying. You are essentially paying for 40ish pages of information you basically know if you've read Delirium, and if you haven't read that book then you definitely should not buy Hana. There is no real story of Hana. You don't learn what happens to her after Lena leaves, you really don't learn anything. Basically you are paying for an excerpt from Pandemonium which is already out. Very disappointing.

Was a good read, but not as good as the actual trilogy. Lauren Oliver is one of the best authors there is and this book is worth a read if you are reading the trilogy. In Requiem, half the book is told from Hana's POV and I liked both. Overall the series is amazing!

Just as "Bree Tanner" was enlightening to readers of Twilight, "Hana" has nice-to-know info for readers of Delirium, especially as it sheds light on one question that might be on your mind after reading Delirium. A quick, easy read, it's good for fans who need more and can't wait until next spring.

I hate Hana. Previously before reading the novella, I thought Hana was Lena's loyal, trusting best friend. She betrays Lena. The last line was shocking.
