About the Author

Diane Hoh (b. 1937) is a bestselling author of young adult fiction. Born in Warren, Pennsylvania, Hoh began her first novel, Loving That O’Connor Boy (1985),after seeing an ad in a publishing trade magazine requesting submissions for a line of young adult fiction.
 
After contributing novels to two popular series, Cheerleaders and the Girls of Canby Hall, Hoh found great success writing thrillers, beginning with Funhouse (1990), a Point Horror novel that became a national bestseller. Following its success, Hoh created the Nightmare Hall series, whose twenty-nine installments chronicle a university plagued by dark secrets, and the seven-volume Med Center series, about the challenges and mysteries in a Massachusetts hospital. In 1998, Hoh had a runaway hit with Titanic: The Long Night and Remembering the Titanic, a pair of novels about two couples’ escape from the doomed ocean liner. She now lives and writes in Austin.

Duffy is not the only one who is going to get the thrill of her life! Contracting a fever under somewhat mysterious circumstances, one wonders if life will ever be the same. At least that's how one feels amidst the emotional and psychological torment that is "The Fever". Duffy must fight to survive and you the reader must fight (the fear) and turn the next page. Can Duffy do it? Moreover, can you? A must for the young at heart die-hard thriller fan...Don't forget now, Lock the door and bolt the windows...more importantly, turn all the lights on!!!

I think this is one of Diane Hoh's better books (so far). I was really interested in the characters, and Duffy has spunk :). I'm still a little confused by the ending, though. The parts I did like were when Duffy was attacked in the shower, and when the brake on her wheel chair gave out and sent her flying down the hill...a book worth reading!

At first I thought THE FEVER was going to center around a mysterious illness but it really doesn’t. It lends a hand to the greater plot but the larger issue going on is that someone is trying to kill Duffy but no one will believe her because they think she’s delirious from being sick. She’s not a character I was really able to feel anything for because she was a bit whiny and bratty and snipped at people when she didn’t get her way. Toward the end her anger was understandable because no one was believing her but it would have helped if she were a little less snippy with people at the beginning to bring in the sympathy.

Once things started happening to her it did pull me a bit more into the story and I did want to find out who was doing these things to her. I never doubted her, though, and I would have liked to. I like it when, in horror, you as a reader start second-guessing everything that’s happening because it’s written in a way that lends itself to that kind of reading doubt. There was a hint of that here at the beginning but it really wasn’t reinforced so I never questioned whether what was happening to Duffy was real or not. Instead of really blurring the lines between delusion and reality Hoh relied on derpy people around her to continue questioning the bratty sick kid that complains a lot. And really she didn’t complain all that much. She whined, sure, but most of her illness-related complaints were legitimate; she was just a brat when relaying them.

It bothers me when crucial evidence isn’t taken to the appropriate authorities as a means of fueling a blow-out for an ending. Like when Duffy had her friend run her medication to her brother’s lab and have them tested, and they come back reaffirming her very big concerns about what was in them.

This wasn't a bad book. It had suspense, intigue, and mystery.However, the writing could use a little work. In some places it kindof fell apart. But still, great plot, Duffy is a cool charactar, and I think you'll enjoy it. Happy Reading!

Hello Reader,
This review is about the book "Fever". It is written by Diane Hoh. The book Fever is a very exciting book full of mysterious people and suspenseful action. The book "Fever" focuses on a single girl named Duffy and the strange fever that seems to overwhelm her whole body. Things only get worse when she hears noises down the hall, and let me tell you they are not happy ones. But hey, she has a high fever it might all be some strange hallucination right? Well if waking up from a "dream" includes bruises and a fear of staying alone at night the yes. I think this book is very interesting because it gives you little facts and completely changes the subject leaving you wanting more.

I think that it is a great book because it surprises you and it never gives away anything. I was really glad that there was an interesting book like this. I recommend this book to all the people who wish to read something fascinating. I also recommend this book to everyone who likes mystery and who likes to figure out strange events or people. I really liked this book and I am sure you will too!

The suspense, creativity, and irony of the novel The Fever, by Diane Hoh, will make any reader anxious to continue reading. Duffy Quin is a faultless teenager. She succeeds in school, she has high self-esteem, and she doesn't have any problem making friends. Who would have thought that she would get an illness that turns her into a lunatic?
Duffy is robbed of her strength and is left helpless in her hospital bed. A fever rages through her body when she realizes something wrong. "What am I doing? Everyone is right about me." She thought in disgust. "I am losing it." (141).
Between the drama of her friends, the fear that someone is about to murder her, and the fact that she can't get out of her hospital bed even to take a shower, Duffy Quin has enough to worry about. Is someone really out to get her, or is her outrageous fever just getting the best of her?
