I’m pushing aside
the memory of my nightmare,
pushing aside thoughts of Alex,
pushing aside thoughts of Hana
and my old school,
push,
push,
push,
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 ?ame.

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 is a sequel to Delirium, one of my favorite books of last year.
Chapters alternate between then and now, disrupting the momentum and impact of the entire book. I cannot imagine why
such a skillful writer as Lauren Oliver chose to do this.
While I liked the character of Julian I didn't much care much for the other new folk. Raven, in particular, just didn't cut it for me (although the story of Blue did). I think if the novel had proceeded straight forward through time then maybe I would have felt closer to the other characters. I found the ending (not the very, very ending) slightly silly (could they really have done that?) and the very, very ending predictable.
I treasure Delirium. As a stand alone novel it is excellent. It doesn't need anything to be added to it.
Skip the sequels!
