Panic
Panic | Lauren Oliver
From New York Times bestselling author Lauren Oliver comes an extraordinary novel of fear, friendship, courage, and hope that Kirkus Reviews says "will have readers up until the wee hours," School Library Journal raves is "fast-paced and captivating," and E. Lockhart, author of We Were Liars, calls "a thrill a minute."Panic began as so many things do in Carp, a poor town of twelve thousand 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. 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 themand the knowledge that sometimes the very things we fear are those we need the most.

It‘s been ages since I‘ve read one of Oliver‘s books- but this YA thriller is an entertaining and quick read that‘s been languishing on my #MtTBR for years! It‘s sort of a re-imagining of the Hunger Games, but set in a small town in NY- and with deadly dares rather than a high tech post-apocalyptic government setting the stakes. There are some predictable parts, but some real surprises too- probably between a so-so and a pick!

Megabooks This is my favorite of hers! 3mo
TorieStorieS @Megabooks I can see why! It was practically a #OneSittingRead for me!! 😊 3mo
k.reads.5 Nice! I read that Amazon is going to make this a show! I haven't read it but I loved her book Before I Fall. 3mo
TorieStorieS @pl.2886 Really??? That‘s really neat! I can definitely see why they picked this one! I‘ll have to check out Before I Fall! Thanks!! 😊 3mo

SailorMoon My boss just told me she's gonna buy me a book I absolutely must read 🤣 too much pressure LOL 6mo
Gezemice This is real. Even if I want to read a book right now, I usually need to wait at least a month because of all the scheduled books already... 6mo
Purrfectpages @Gezemice I totally feel your pain! (edited) 6mo
Purrfectpages @SailorMoon ooh that is pressure. I‘d be worried I won‘t like it! 😆 6mo

It‘s about time I finally REALLY read this. I started it at some point, but it bored me so I put it down. Hopefully it‘s better than my memory tells me!

I really enjoyed this book and I do recommend it
I liked the characters as annoying as they might be at some points, however it‘s not one of the best books I‘ve read. The mystery was too obvious for me and the last chapter was a little boring.

I would love a cover change, I feel that a tiger would be more appropriate and more aesthetically pleasing.

The concept is enticing, but the delivery was lackluster. The writing wasn't so great. Definitely got boring quite often. The only redeeming aspect was the characters. Never bothered to read the sequels.

Panic, by Lauren Oliver, is one of those books that's really hard to put down. The tension is maintained throughout the novel, as was my curiosity. #WhatToRead #booklover #YoungAdultBooks #YoungAdult #YA #YABooks #Contemporary

'That's the thing about trust.' He crunched an ice cube between his teeth. 'You don't know.

This could have been great but copped out too many times (especially the ending.)

I listened to this book on audio because I needed something to listen to while at work. This book is not like and should not be compared to the Hunger Games. While there are some similar aspects this book is its own. Given that, it was suspenseful in some parts, particularly towards the end. Some of the characters quickly got on my nerves but the story is well told. Not a fan of the audiobook narrator though.

Fast-paced, well-rounded characters, and (coming from a poor community) an interesting yet believable premise. The ending left a few things unexplored that I really felt would have made this a more complete novel. Still, I enjoyed it.

Continuing with my enjoyment of Lauren Oliver's standalone novels, Panic was actually the first of hers that I read. I was shocked by how much I enjoyed it. There's a great building of tension as the stakes are raised higher and higher. It's small-town life at its lowest and darkest.
