Review'd: Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver
Title: Pandemonium (Delirium 2)
Author: Lauren Oliver
Published February 28th, 2012 by Harper Teen
Rating: 5 Stars
I'm pushing aside the memory of my nightmare,
Pushing aside thoughts of Alex,
Pushing aside thoughts of Hanna and my old school,
Like Raven taught me to.
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.
DeLibrarie (Del) Review:
One of the downfalls of loving books so much is the waiting. I feel like I'm always waiting. Waiting for title reveals. Waiting for cover reveals. Waiting for synopsis reveals. and OF COURSE waiting for the book itself to be released. This book is probably the one that I've waited for with the least amount of patience. I LOVED ... no LOVE... Delirium. The ending is just so breathtaking that one can't NOT love it. The moment I finished it, I longed for the next one, and I know I wasn't alone in that longing. I'm warning you... You will be just as (maybe even more) jarred by this ending. I vaguely remember feeling like parts of the book seemed a little slow, I never got bored but more than once I felt my mind wander away from the book... but it is impossible for me to give Oliver's books any less that 5 stars because her endings are just so moving. They leave me aching to find out how Lena is going to handle the next obstacle thrown her way.
