I’m pushing aside the memory of my nightmare,
pushing aside thoughts of Alex,
pushing aside thoughts of Hana and my old school,
like Raven taught me to do.
The old life is dead.
But the old Lena is dead too.
I buried her.
I left her beyond a fence,
behind a wall of smoke and flame.
Lauren Oliver delivers an electrifying follow-up to her acclaimed New York Times bestseller, Delirium. This riveting, brilliant novel crackles with the fire of fierce defiance, forbidden romance, and the sparks of a revolution about to ignite.
Pandemonium picks up right where Delirium ends. Lena is on her own and is running for her life. I really loved Lena in this book. She is a completely different girl than the one we met in Delirium; she has become such a strong, independent young lady. More than once she did things that surprised me. I love watching her character grow more independent.
While Lena is still the main character in the book, we are also introduced to a whole set of new characters. Most of the characters I found to be very interesting, and each for very different reasons. We don’t really get to see many of the characters from Delirium, and I have to say that I really missed a few of them.
One thing that disappointed me is that something is missing from the book. I’m not going to say what, but I will say that when you’ve read the book, you will totally understand what I’m talking about. I do, however, realize that without this one missing piece, we wouldn’t have had this really awesome book.
Pandemonium will definitely keep you on the edge of your seat up until the very last page. The ending nearly killed me, and now I’m dying to get my hands on Requiem! Lauren Oliver does a wonderful job of grabbing your attention and never letting go. I love that while the storyline is still the same as Delirium, the book is just has a completely different aspect to it. SO GOOD!
Overall, this book was great. If you loved Delirium, just wait until you get your hands on Pandemonium!
