Mes coups de coeur de tous les genres littéraires... et plus encore!

  • Rencontre avec Alex, Hana et Lena de Delirium
  • Delirium

    Delirium de Lauren Oliver sort en France aujourd'hui! Retrouvez mon avis ICI C'est mon premier coup de coeur de l'année ! (et mon seul pour le moment ^^) Un petit extrait de ma chronique :

    Il y a donc beaucoup d'action, de suspense, de rebondissements, de tension, d'amitié et bien sur d'amour, sans oublier une belle réflexion sur la place des émotions, car c'est ce qui fait de nous des humains et pas des robots. La révélation d’un monde totalitaire est faite mais le système est également combattu dès ce premier tome, ce qui est tout à l'honneur de l'auteur. La fin est juste terrible et nous laisse un sentiment puissant de frustration.

    Dans le cadre du Delirium book tour qui lance la sortie du livre aux Etats Unis, des présentations des perosnnages principaux sont faits : Lena, l'héroïne, Hana, sa meilleure amie, et Alex, mystérieux et séduisant. ^^

    Lena :

    Okay well…I’m not really sure what to say. My name is Lena Haloway Tiddle. Tiddle is my aunt’s name, actually. I live with her now, and my cousins Grace and Jenny. Technically Grace and Jenny are my second cousins, or first cousins once-removed—I always get that confused. They’re both daughters of my cousin Marcia, who is dead now. Complicated, right? I’m pretty much the only person I know with such a screwy family. I guess that’s why some people say that my blood is tainted. There was disease in the family; that’s why we all got messed up.
    What else about me? I’m not that interesting—just your average girl, I guess. I love to run. I was captain of my high school cross-country team. My best friend, Hana, also runs track, although she likes sprints and hurdles and I prefer long-distance.

    I like to take photos, but I’m not very good. My favorite food is lobster, although I’ve only ever eaten it twice, even though I live in Portland, Maine. It’s expensive. I like to be outside, even in winter. I like stomping around in the cold, when everyone else is inside. I like the thinness of the air. And the cold makes the summer even better—when it finally warms up, you can really appreciate it. My aunt thinks I’m crazy. She wishes the world had a thermostat—then you could adjust it to the perfect temperature all year long. I guess that’s kind of what having the cure is like. You get to adjust your internal temperature, and keep it exactly right forever. Funny I’ve never thought about it that way before.

    Hana :

    I’ve known Lena forever—at least it feels that way. Even though we look completely different, we like to joke that we’re twins separated at birth. I’m an only child but I’ve always wanted a sister, even though Lena says it’s not that great. She hardly ever sees her sister, Rachel, any more. And when she does, Rachel just sits there with her lips folded all tightly like she’s got a stick wedged up her butt. Don’t tell Lena I said that—she wouldn’t like it. See? That’s what I like about Lena. She thinks about other people’s feelings, you know? She’s thoughtful that way. Sometimes I swear she can read my mind.

    Now that we’re graduated from high school we’ve got one summer. One summer to do it right—one summer to do it our way, before they slice open our brain like a pork getting filleted. My mom hates it when I talk about the procedure that way, and of course they don’t really cut it open, but still. It’s hard to find anything fun around here, though.

    Portland’s as small as a pimple when you’ve been here your whole life, trust me. I’m not sure if it’s better anywhere else, though…I mean, it’s not like I’m some big expert on other cities. At least I have Lena. We  always have fun, even if we’re not doing anything. One more summer…

    Alex :

    Hey. I’m not really great at talking about myself. Maybe it’s a guy thing? What do you want to know, exactly? Is there a guide for this online. Kidding, kidding. This is just bringing me back to my evaluations is all. What is your favorite color? Green! All that kind of stuff.

    I like living in Portland okay. It could be worse. I like the parks, and I like the shoreline a lot. Spend a lot of time down at Casco Bay, and by the Old Ports; when I’m done working at the labs I like to walk around the old cobblestone streets. Sometimes I just sit by the water, in the sun, for hours at a time. I think maybe I was a cat in a past life.

    The life story is pretty straightforward. You can see all my details in the official file. Look it up with SVS—no point in my rehashing everything. Just your average, run-of-the-mill guy. I’ve been cured but not paired yet; apparently, they’ve had trouble finding a perfect match for me. If I had to say what she would be like…well, I don’t know. I’ve always felt it’s more the little things…the sound of a person’s laugh, the way she wrinkles her nose when she’s thinking, the habits and quirks. Weird preferences. Loving asparagus or hating peaches or whatever. Enjoying the sound of rain, getting freaked by the wind. That kind of thing. But you can’t test for that, can you?
