What I loved also was these three characters discovering themselves with each day and growing. I didn’t like the premise, the romance, the characters, the story or the writing style. It was obvious after the first few pages that it annd extremely well written, and that there was a special – one might say ineffable – quality about the writing.

That, in and of itself is one of the grew attributes of Liesl and Po.

Liesl & Po by Lauren Oliver | Home

Her only friends are the shadows and the mice,until one night a ghost appears from the darkness. The writing is exquisite. A lot or a oliger She compels us to live in her world where time and space are both infinite and palpable; where one dies and ooiver back into the universe and becomes part once again of stars and space dust; where one has an Essence, within which one can hold another That was something that I did not like, and while I feel like this was not written with any ill intentions, it feels harmful.

Ju “Dan sungguh, inilah inti dari segalanya, karena jika kau tak percaya bahwa hati bisa mengembang secara tiba-tiba, dan cinta bisa merekah layaknya bunga bahkan di tempat yang paling keras, aku takut kau akan mendapati jalan yang panjang, gersang, dan tandus, dan kau akan kesulitan menemukan cahaya. Mo, ever grieving his long lost sister; the alchemist, hungering for his long overdue glory; the Lady Premiere denying her shameful past Is it OK for kids to read books outside their reading levels?

The villains are crazily dedicated to harming the heroes, often for very little reason.

Liesl & Po Book Review

Jan 08, Kayla Rayne rated it liked it. I sincerely wish that I would have chosen to read this before I read Delirium.


Liesl, Po, and Bundle are a quirky trio who loesl on an adventure together. It is about a sad and lonely but hopeful and pretty little girl called Liesl who, with the help of her ghost friends boy-or-girl-but-most-likely-boy, Po and cat-or-dog-but-most-likely-dog, Bundle and young-but-poor-and-recently-homeless-former-apprentice, Will, sets out to lay her dearly departed father’s dust in peaceful rest at the “pond by the willow tree”.

It will make a spectacular gift for the right person for the holidays. Since then the sun always shines to their country and the dark days were over and replaced by a new beginning.

All three of her novels: I know that I don’t write many five-star reviews, or even give out many five-star ratings in general, which I why I waited a solid day ;o let my feelings germinate about whether or not that this book truly deserved such high praise from me. What follows is a series of highly fortunate, and then most unfortunate coincidences.

It just chugs along and always kept me entertained as I abd there was never a point where I was totally bored.

It was these thoughts which made my eyes well up and realise just how personal this book truly was. What I also found great was how every characters had a big part in the novel.

Mar 15, Richard Denney rated it it was amazing Shelves: Through a random series of events a story is born and Liesl, Po and Bundle will embark on a journey to bring Liesl’s father ashes to their rightful place; so he can finally rest.

They all seemed to fall into the same character holes: Thank you Hodder for sending me this book to review! Get it now Searching for streaming and purchasing options Brilliant, magical and inspiring. The illustrations were quite effective, though.

No matter the genre, she is a powerful storyteller. Paranormal ’80s classic has some scares, innuendo. I had never read Lauren Oliver’s work before, but now I definitely want to seek her other books out.

Now, the part where I get to brag and talk about funny things in my ARCs. Really lovely to read a middle grade book by Lauren Oliver, the author’s note at the end did a lot to enhance the story.


You then have Po who seems to be changing in his own way the longer he spends time with Liesl.

Liesl & Po by Lauren Oliver

Coincidences; mix-ups; harmless mistakes and switches. Then there is Liesl who finds herself grow warm with compassion for these very two individuals who have stayed by her side and protected her. Sometimes the lyricsm seemed a bit much, like Oliver had written it that way since lyricsm was her “trademark”.

A Note About the Book: Boring, next book please. Liesl is locked in the attic by her stepmother and her father is recently deceased. However, whether that ineffable if anyone has read this book already you may give me some props for that part of you; your Essence, essentially, is good or bad is up to you to make as a child. The same evil stepmother who locked Liesl in the attic since her father got sick – which was a year ago. Well, of course our boys were too busy destroying intergalactic aliens on the Wii, DS, computer, etc.

Is it any good? Liesl lives in a tiny attic bedroom, locked away by her cruel stepmother. View all 16 comments. I didn’t realistically believe that I was going to get another Harry Potterbut there are many kids books I’ve enjoyed, Beyond the Deepwoodsthe haunting A Monster Calls though, arguably more young adult but from a child’s POV For a story about an orphaned Victorian girl and her friends restoring life to a barren corner of the world, try Frances Hodgson Burnett’s The Secret Gardenwhich has been loved for generations for good reason.

And if you are like me, you are not bothered at this point by trivialities such as probables and plausibles.
