Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver.
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.
- My review: (Spoilers alert)
Pandemonium is the second book of Delirium trilogy. I loved the first book, I really did and I was dying to read this book, so when it came out, I just had to get it. I started reading it and I couldn’t stop. With its NOW and THEN it kept you glued to the book, incapable of doing anything else!
I started this book in denial, saying: No, Alex is not dead. No, no, no! No, Lena, don’t fall for Julian, no! Alex is somewhere, I know it, I feel it!! I didn’t want to fall for Julian either, but I couldn’t help it. This boy gets under your skin, he takes over your heart and you’re lost! So I can’t blame Lena, it was impossible not to love him.
I love Lauren Oliver, I really do, she’s amazing, but she had me crying the whole book, yelling for Alex, hoping he was alive. When I’m finally accepting that he died, BOM! he appears and he seems so changed. My heart just broke with that cliffhanger and now I have to wait a YEAR for that book. I’ll die, I know that.
The book is brilliant, Lena’s evolution is even better than in Delirium, how she discovers more and more things about the people surrounding her, oh, that is just great. I love her more than before and I have so many theories for the next book and at the same time I’m so scared. I don’t know what is going to happen, I just know I’ll have a heart attack.
My rating: ✭✭✭✭✭ and if I could give it more stars, I would do it!
