Lauren Oliver könyvei a rukkolán


Lauren Oliver - Annabel
Lena's ​mother, Annabel, has always been a mystery—a ghost in Lena's past. Until now. Discover her secrets in Lauren Oliver's brilliant original digital story set in the world of New York Times bestsellers Delirium and Pandemonium. Lena Halloway's mother, Annabel, supposedly committed suicide when Lena was only six years old. That's the lie that Lena grew up believing, but the truth is very different. As a rebellious teenager, Annabel ran away from home and straight into the man she knew she was destined to marry. The world was different then—the regulations not as stringent, the cure only a decade old. Fast forward to the present, and Annabel is consigned to a dirty prison cell, where she nurtures her hope of escape and scratches one word over and over into the walls: Love. But Annabel, like Lena, is a fighter. Through chapters that alternate between her past and present, Annabel reveals the story behind her failed cures, her marriage, the births of her children, her imprisonment, and, ultimately, her daring escape.

Lauren Oliver - Requiem ​(angol)

Lauren Oliver - Tünékeny ​lányok
Dara ​és Nick korábban elválaszthatatlanok voltak ‒ azelőtt, hogy Dara csókolózott Parkerrel, azelőtt, hogy Nicknek le kellett mondania a legjobb barátjáról, és a baleset előtt, ami összeroncsolta Dara gyönyörű arcát. Azóta a lánytestvérek, akik korábban olyan közel álltak egymáshoz, egyetlen szót sem váltanak. Nick egy pillanat alatt elvesztett mindent, és feltett szándéka a nyár folyamán visszaszerezni, amit lehet. Darának azonban más tervei vannak. Amikor a születésnapján eltűnik, Nick azt hiszi, csak játszik vele. Ám egy másik lány, a kilencéves Madeleine Snow is eltűnt és mivel Nickben egyre erősebb a meggyőződés, hogy a két eset összefügg egymással, húga keresésére indul. Ebben a lebilincselően izgalmas regényben a Delírium-trilógia és a Mielőtt elmegyek írója, Lauren Oliver olyan világot alkotott meg, ahol a cselszövés, a veszteség és a sejtelem összefonódik, és érzékeny részletekkel kirajzolja két önmagát és egymást kereső testvér életútját.

Lauren Oliver - Vanishing ​Girls
When ​nine-year-old Madeline Snow goes missing from a parking lot in a sleepy Massachusetts town, the whole community follows the seemingly dead-end search with bated breath – including sisters Nick and Dara Warren. The girls, once joined at the hip, have become estranged after a violent car crash leaves Dara scarred and Nick with almost no memory of the hours leading up to the accident that changed their lives forever. But when Dara disappears on the eve of her seventeenth birthday, Nick is convinced that something has gone terribly wrong, and she’s determined to track her sister down. The more Nick uncovers about her enigmatic sister and the double life she led before the accident, the more unsure she is that she wants to know the truth. But the stakes are getting higher, propelling her forward and backward in time, willing her to expose the link between these two vanishing girls.

Lauren Oliver - Káosz
"− ​Szóval korábban hogy hívtak? – kérdezem, mire megáll. Nem fordul meg, miközben folytatom: − Úgy értem, azelőtt, hogy a Vadonba jöttél. Egy darabig még dermedten áll, aztán megfordul. − Jobb lesz, ha lassan hozzászoksz – mondja halkan, de határozottan. – Minden, ami voltál, az előző életed, az ismerőseid… elporladtak. – Megrázza a fejét, majd még szigorúbb hangon folytatja. – Nincs olyan, hogy azelőtt. Csak most van, és ami ezután következik." Lauren Oliver felvillanyozóan izgalmas második kötettel folytatja a Delíriumban megkezdett történetet. A trilógia első kötete, a Delírium 2011-ben előkelő helyezést ért el a New York Times bestseller listáján. A fordulatos folytatásban szinte sisteregnek a vad elszántság, a tiltott szerelem és egy kitörni készülő forradalom lángjai.

Lauren Oliver - Pánik
Heather ​soha nem gondolta volna, hogy részt fog venni a Pánikban, a legendás versenyben, a végzős gimnazisták megmérettetéseiben, amelynek rendkívüli tétje van – mindenekfelett a busás nyeremény. Soha nem képzelte magát bátornak, sőt azt sem gondolta, hogy valaha küzdeni fog vagy kiáll magáért. Amikor azonban talál valamit, és valakit, akiért küzdhet, rájön, hogy bátrabb, mint hitte volna. Dodge viszont soha nem félt a Pániktól. Mélységes titka rendkívüli hajtóerő, és biztos benne, hogy a győzelmet is garantálja neki. Azt azonban nem tudja, hogy mások is őriznek titkokat. Mindenkinek oka van játszani. Heather és Dodge számára a játék új szövetségeket, váratlan felfedezéseket hoz, és mindkettőjüket megismerteti az első szerelemmel. Ráébreszti őket, hogy néha azokra a dolgokra van a legnagyobb szükségünk, amelyektől a legjobban félünk.

Lauren Oliver - Panic
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.

Bár a hangjukat nem hallani, a házzal üzennek, fűtőtestek sziszegésében, lépcsők recsegésében, kiégő villanykörtékkel. Élőket és holtakat kísértenek a fájdalmas emlékek, amelyek vulkanikus erővel törnek a felszínre. Amikor megjelenik egy új kísértet, és kiderül, hogy Trenton tud beszélni vele, az élők és a holtak világa összeütközik, aminek robbanás lesz a vége.

Lauren Oliver - Rekviem
"Lehet, ​hogy megőrjítenek minket az érzéseink. Lehet, hogy a szerelem tényleg betegség, és sokkal jobb lenne nélküle. Mi azonban egy másik utat választottunk. Végeredményben ezért szöktünk el a kúra elől: hogy szabadon választhassunk. Abban is szabadok vagyunk, hogy rosszul döntsünk." "Ki akartak füstölni minket, a múltba száműzni. De még mindig itt vagyunk. Ráadásul minden nappal egyre többen leszünk." A Delírium-trilógia befejező kötetében Lena az Ellenállás teljes jogú tagjává válik.

After escaping from Portland, Maine, Lena makes it to the Wilds and becomes part of an Invalid community, where she transforms herself into a warrior for the resistance.

Lauren Oliver - Rooms
The ​New York Times bestselling author of Before I Fall and the Delirium trilogy makes her brilliant adult debut with this mesmerizing story in the tradition of The Lovely Bones, Her Fearful Symmetry, and The Ocean at the End of the Lane—a tale of family, ghosts, secrets, and mystery, in which the lives of the living and the dead intersect in shocking, surprising, and moving ways Wealthy Richard Walker has just died, leaving behind his country house full of rooms packed with the detritus of a lifetime. His estranged family—bitter ex-wife Caroline, troubled teenage son Trenton, and unforgiving daughter Minna—have arrived for their inheritance. But the Walkers are not alone. Prim Alice and the cynical Sandra, long dead former residents bound to the house, linger within its claustrophobic walls. Jostling for space, memory, and supremacy, they observe the family, trading barbs and reminiscences about their past lives. Though their voices cannot be heard, Alice and Sandra speak through the house itself—in the hiss of the radiator, a creak in the stairs, the dimming of a light bulb. The living and dead are each haunted by painful truths that will soon surface with explosive force. When a new ghost appears, and Trenton begins to communicate with her, the spirit and human worlds collide—with cataclysmic results. Elegantly constructed and brilliantly paced, Rooms is an enticing and imaginative ghost story and a searing family drama that is as haunting as it is resonant.

Lauren Oliver - Delírium
"Kilencvenöt ​nap, és védett leszek. Nem tudom, fájni fog-e a kúra. Túl akarok lenni rajta. Nehéz türelmesnek maradnom. Nehéz nem félni, amíg nem vagyok biztonságban, habár a delírium eddig még elkerült. Mégis aggódom. Állítólag a régi időkben az emberek megőrültek a szerelemtől. Ez a legelvetemültebb gyilkos a világon: akkor is végez az áldozattal, ha megérinti, és akkor is, ha nem." LAUREN OLIVER már első, remekbe szabott regényével lenyűgözte az olvasókat. A Mielőtt elmegyek a Publishers Weekly elragadtatott kritikájában „nyers, érzelmes, helyenként gyönyörű” könyvként szerepelt, amelynek vége „merész, ugyanakkor szívfacsaró”.

Lauren Oliver - Liesl ​and Po
We ​meet Liesl the night after the day her young father has died. That same day she is visited by a ghost, Po, an eight year old boy who lives on the other side, the territory between life and death that runs parallel to the living world. Po has come to tell her that her father is stuck on the other side, and that she is the only one who can help him cross over. A couple of wooden boxes. Some ashes. Some magic dust. A ghost, its pet, and a boy who forgot to wear a hat in the cold.

Lauren Oliver - Replica
From ​Lauren Oliver, New York Times bestselling author of Before I Fall and the Delirium trilogy, comes an epic, masterful novel that explores issues of individuality, identity, and humanity. Replica contains two narratives in one: Lyra’s story and Gemma’s story. The stories can be read separately, one after the other, or in alternating chapters. The two distinct parts of this astonishing novel combine to produce an unforgettable journey. Lyra’s story begins in the Haven Institute, a building tucked away on a private island off the coast of Florida that from a distance looks serene and even beautiful. But up close the locked doors, military guards, and biohazard suits tell a different story. In truth, Haven is a clandestine research facility where thousands of replicas, or human models, are born, raised, and observed. When a surprise attack is launched on Haven, two of its young experimental subjects—Lyra, or 24, and the boy known only as 72—manage to escape. Gemma has been in and out of hospitals for as long as she can remember. A lonely teen, her life is circumscribed by home, school, and her best friend, April. But after she is nearly abducted by a stranger claiming to know her, Gemma starts to investigate her family’s past and discovers her father’s mysterious connection to the secretive Haven research facility. Hungry for answers, she travels to Florida, only to stumble upon two replicas and a completely new set of questions. While the stories of Lyra and Gemma mirror each other, each contains breathtaking revelations critically important to the other story. Replica is an ambitious, thought-provoking masterwork.
