Panic by Lauren Oliver Review

Publicado por Paulina J. en 8:30
Title: Panic 
Author: Lauren Oliver 
Pages: 416 
Date Published: March 4th 2014 
Publisher: Harper Collins

Panic began as so many things do in Carp, a dead-end town of 12,000 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.

Find Book



Laure Oliver used to be one of those authors whose books I bought no matter what it was about but sadly the last book was a bit of a letdown I was Panic would blow my mind away, sadly that didn’t happen.

Pros:

-At first I was a little bit nervous because the blurb made Panic sound a little bit like the Hunger Games but it turned out to be anything but.
-The concept was very interesting I like the idea of a whole school coming together even if it was for a dangerous game.

Cons:

-I found all the characters to be rather bland, I confused them all throughout the book and even in the end I didn’t even care what happened to them.

-Although I really liked the concept of the book I didn’t enjoy the execution the book dragged a little too much for my liking
This book not what I was expecting but not in a good way; it actually reminded me a little bit of Nerve by Jeanne Ryan.

My final rating would be 1.5-2 stars depending on my mood that day.
