Pandemonium was everything that a following up book to best-selling should be. Action, love, adventure, and incredible twists is what makes Lauren Oliver incredibly talented.
It was a shock to realize that the book was split up by “Then” & “Now” chapters which was hard to get used to. It told a story of “Then” – when Lena found herself with a group of those in the wild that lived how they wanted while trying to survive. & “Now” – being kidnapped with Julian and trying to stop all the emotions that were going through her head after losing Alex.
“Grief is like sinking, like being buried. I am in water the tawny color of kicked-up dirt. Every breath is full of choking. There is nothing to hold on to, no sides, no way to claw myself up. There is nothing to do but let go."
I LOVEDDDD this book! It felt different than Delirium but after accepting that it was okay – I fell in love with it. Again. Shock after finding out that Lena’s mother was still alive had worn off. But of course, author had more twists at the end :’(
