Review

"This is a romance in the purest of senses, where just the longing for the faintest taste of love is worth the greatest of risks. Like all successful second volumes, this expands the world and ups the stakes, setting us up for the big finale."--Booklist

"From the grief-stricken shell of her former self to a nascent refugee and finally to a full-fledged resistance fighter, Lena's strength and the complexity of her internal struggles will keep readers up at night."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"Following directly on the heels of Delirium, Pandemonium is equally riveting. The underlying theme that love will win out regardless of prohibition is a powerful idea that will speak to teens."--School Library Journal

"The gasp-worthy final page sets the stage for a promising conclusion to this trilogy."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

Praise for Delirium: "Strong characters, a vivid portrait of the lives of teens in a repressive society, and nagging questions that can be applied to our world today make this book especially compelling and discussable."--School Library Journal (starred review)

"After this second book, fans of Oliver and of dystopian fiction will be clamoring for the final installment of the trilogy."--Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA)

"If...you crave the heart-stopping action of the arena from The Hunger Games combined with a destined-to-be-doomed love story then this sequel is perfect for you!"--Seventeen.com

Praise for Delirium: "In [Oliver's] dystopian America, love has been outlawed as the life-threatening source of all discord. Lena's gradual awakening is set against a convincing backdrop of totalitarian horror. The abrupt ending leaves enough unanswered questions to set breathless readers up for volume two of this trilogy."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Praise for Delirium: "In a thick climate of fear, Oliver spins out a suspenseful story of awakening and resistance with true love at its core."--The Horn Book

Praise for Before I Fall: "Oliver's debut novel is raw, emotional, and, at times, beautiful....readers will love Samantha best as she hurtles toward an end as brave as it is heartbreaking."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Praise for Delirium: "Oliver's deeply emotional and incredibly well-honed prose commands the readers' attention and captures their hearts. With a pulse-pounding tempo and unforeseen twists and turns, Lauren Oliver has opened the door on a fantastic new series; the second book can't come soon enough."--New York Journal of Books

Praise for Before I Fall: "This story races forward, twisting in a new direction every few pages, its characters spinning my emotions from affection to frustration, anger to compassion. You'll have no choice but to tear through this book!"--Jay Asher, author of the New York Times bestseller Thirteen Reasons Why

Praise for Before I Fall: "Samantha's attempts to save her life and right the wrongs she has caused are precisely what will draw readers into this complex story and keep them turning pages until Sam succeeds in living her last day the right way."--Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA) (Starred Review)

Praise for Before I Fall: "Oliver, in a pitch-perfect teen voice, explores the power we have to affect the people around us in this intensely believable first novel...This is a compelling book with a powerful message and should not be missed."--ALA Booklist

Praise for Before I Fall: "Before I Fall is smart, complex, and heartbreakingly beautiful. Lauren Oliver has written an extraordinary debut novel about what it means to live--and die."--Carolyn Mackler, author of Tangled and The Earth, My Butt, and Other Big Round Things, a Printz Honor book

From the grief-stricken shell of her former self to a nascent refugee and finally to a full-fledged resistance fighter, Lena s strength and the complexity of her internal struggles will keep readers up at night. --Kirkus Reviews (starred review)"

Review

'We're big fans of Lauren Oliver and this is the emotionally charged follow-up to last year's futuristic love story DELIRIUM. With echoes of Brave New World, we catch up with young heroine Lena as she attempts to survive in the dangerous Wilds ... Now we just have to wait for the final episode in the trilogy.' -- Bella 'Thrilling and thought-provoking... Fast paced and consistently poignant, this tale quickly becomes hypnotically addictive. We almost missed our stop on the bus because we were so engrossed. Lena is a strong multi-faceted character and the future society in which she exists genuinely terrifying... A thoughtful, exciting and moving story that reminds us just how important love is. Devour it, then go and give all your friends a big hug.' -- Heat 'Crackling with tension, Lauren Oliver's follow up to DELIRIUM is as whip smart and addictive as her dystopian debut.' -- Marie Claire 'Prepare to become completely absorbed.' -- Glamour 'Oliver is a considerably better writer than the Twilight creator - an adept and occasionally courageous storyteller who can shock and awe with a well-placed twist.' -- Independent 'Beautifully written in Lauren Oliver's inimitable style.' -- daisychainbookreviews.blogspot.co.uk 'Oliver writes in such a beautiful way, it's hard to put the book down. 5/5' -- Press Association

For those of you who have read Delirium and saw how it ended. Yeah... you can't (hopefully) blame me for wanting this book asap.

"Love, the deadliest of all deadly things.
Love, it kills you.
Both when you have it ...
And when you don't."

The first thing you notice when you start reading Pandemonium is the format. Delirium was straight forward, one sided, bog standard story telling. Pandemonium alternates between each chapter. But instead of alternating between different characters, like in most books, it alternated between Lena in two different time zones. These are known as "Then" and "Now". "Then" are the chapters following the events directly after the end of Delirium. "Now" is based several months afterwards, in New York, where Lena is working from the inside to bring down a pro-deliria organisation.
I loved that it was done this way. It just made me want to continue reading. As one chapter ends you want to continue to find out what happens next but, of course, you have to read the alternate chapter before you can. And then it happens again and again ... until you have finished the novel.

This book was full of ACTION, ACTION, ACTION with suspenseful parts in-between. In both time lines, we are following, there is plenty of reason to keep reading. Much more than in Delirium. My favourite chapters were defiantly the ones in the present. They popped up a lot more questions and have much more suspense. Anything that keeps me reading and become distracted (yep I didn't eat dinner) warrants a 5 star.

In the past, we get to meet Raven and a lot of other new characters. It was interesting to see how the invalids live although we didn't get to know them as much as I would have liked.

This book was amazing, Lauren has outdone herself. I enjoyed reading this so much, the writing just flowed from start to finish.

I had one big question starting this book. Did Alex survive? And a big part of me saying, "please let him be alive". I don't want to say "yay" or "nay" and spoil this book for anyone so I am going to review it without going too much into the storyline.

Pandemonium is written in alternating chapters of 'now' and 'then'. In the 'now', we learn the story of Lena's emergence into the Wilds and how she deals with the struggles and hardships of this new way of life. A better way of life?

Through the 'now', we see Lena working as part of the resistance, and she is about to embark on her first mission.

The ambience of this book is very downbeat throughout. Lena really struggles with her new life in the Wilds and at times, even wonders if she wants to survive. Life is hard in every way and sickness and death are a regular occurrence without access to medical supplies and often, a shortage of food.

There are a lot of new characters and I did lose track of who some of them were but it didn't impede on my following the story. The main characters are well written, identifiable and likeable.

We see a completely different Lena than we did in Delirium. She grows into a much stronger person, in every way, character, mind and body. She is amazing.

The ending of this book is explosive. While the book was suspenseful at times, I really didn't see the ending coming. It is probably the happiest part and my heart was in my mouth. Then it ends on one hell of a cliffhanger.

In Delirium, we see life from one side of the fence, the Cureds. In Pandemonium, we get to see life from the other side, the Invalids. I can't wait to see what Requiem will hold for us.

Thanks to Hodder & Stoughton Publishers for providing a copy of this book for review.

As a sequel it is unusual to surpass a first in a series novel, but for me this did. I liked Delirium, I loved this.

Again I don't usually like books which use the alternating chapters of now and then, but here it really worked and I literally galloped through the story as both time lines were equally thrilling. I guess that's the key here, this is a real thriller as well as being YA fantasy/romance novel.

The lead character Lena has really grown, we see her morphing from being a fairly confused girl into a young woman with a purpose, and someone who knows what she believes in.

The novel opens with Lena living in New York attending a school there, however it is soon explained that she is part of an undercover group of uncured people who are now forming a resistance.

In the next chapter we are taken back to the moment Lena crossed the border fence and where she had presumed her boyfriend Alex had died. Both story lines are as exciting: following Lena desperately fighting to survive with her fellow resistors as they travel from northern New York state to the south to find warmer climes for the winter and in the alternate timeline where Lena is kidnapped a long with a antideliria advocate and it is their relationship that fascinates here.

This is such a brilliant book, and as an older person I was surprised how much I enjoyed it. I think this is for any age group and anyone who appreciates their freedom of speech and thought, which ultimately this is about.
