PANDEMONIUM by Lauren Oliver
About PANDEMONIUM (taken from goodreads.com)
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.
Review of PANDEMONIUM
I was ready for a war or something in this book and it didn’t really happen. It wasn’t a bad book, it was actually a good sequel so I was pretty happy with it at the end.
I did not like the whole Julian situation. You just fell in love with one guy and you think he’s dead but you’re not sure so you go after the next guy you see. That’s not really how it works. That’s probably my biggest no for this book. I was pretty happy with the rest of the characters though. I just didn’t like the whole Lena/Julian thing.
I still really like the world the author created. It’s a new and cool idea and I was fairly happy with it in this book. The plot wasn’t bad, it moved along nicely and I wasn’t expecting a lot that happened. At the end though this was an average book but it was a really good sequel. I’d recommend it.
