Pandemonium (Delirium #2)
By Lauren Oliver
4 out of 5
This book is written in two story lines that are delivered in alternating chapters.
Lena has made it into the Wilds, but that doesn't mean that her struggles are over. Far from it. Lena makes it to one of the resistance homesteads and joins the resistance. There she has to lug water and help the group survive the hard and cold winter that is quickly approaching.
Lena is part of the resistance living in New York City with Raven and Tack, two fellow resisters she met at the homestead. Her mission, to learn as much as possible about Julian Fineman: the son of the nations leader for the pro-cure movement. But Lena's about to get a lot closer than she ever thought. When Julian and Lena both get captured and thrown into a cell together, who knows what is going to happen.
Very good. The going back and forth was confusing in the beginning a little bit. The book alternates between present Lena in the resistance, and past Lena in the Wilds, which get a little confusing because Lena makes references to things that haven't been explained yet, but I did like both sides of the story. I liked the present Lena chapters better though because there was more action and more character development. It was kind of like you knew that this was the important part of the story, so more time had been spent on those sections than on the other sections. And the ending! Wow! I liked it, but all I can say is, ITS NOT FAIR ITS NOT FAIR ITS NOT FAIR ITS NOT FAIR ITS NOT FAIR ITS NOT FAIR.
Needless to say, I need to get my hands on Requiem as soon as possible, because I do not approve of cliff hangers, EVER.
