Exclusive Interview with Author Lauren Oliver
Me : Tell us something about you that you have not told anyone before.
Lauren : No way! There's a reason I don't tell people. :)
Me : Delirium is a dystopian novel series. What was your idea behind writing a series on dystopia?
Lauren : I didn't know that dystopia was a genre when I started writing delirium. I don't really think of stories in terms of genre. It was just a story I wanted to write.
Me : Tell us three things about Alex and Julian does not have in common.
Lauren : Julian is sheltered, Alex was born free.
Julian is gentle, Alex is passionate
Julian is rescued, Alex is rescuer.
Me : If you have to choose between Alex and Julian, whom would you choose and why?
Lauren : For me in real life? Probably Julian.
Me : After Pandemonium, the mind blowing sequel to Delirium, what we are going to see in Requiem, would you like share few words about it?
Lauren : It's told from two different points of view. Lena, and Hana!
Me : Would you like to share your memories about the first draft of Delirium?
Lauren : I always hate my first drafts! I need to get some distance before I can start to like them again.
Me : What was your first ever piece of writing? Please tell us about it.
Lauren : I don't really remember, because I've been writing ever since I physically could! The first things I wrote were a kind of fanfiction, continuations of stories that I loved.
Me : Two perfect songs for Alex and Lena And Julian and Lena.
Lauren : Hmmm, I don't know! What do you guys think?
Me : Thank you for your time Lauren. Please leave a message for your fan who are dying to read Requiem.
Lauren : Just a huge thank you!!!
