Description

Love, the deadliest of all deadly things. It kills you when you have it. And when you don't. 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 flame. Pandemonium is a poignant, explosive, recklessly romantic and utterly heartbreaking novel. Like Delirium, the first in the compelling trilogy, it will take you to the very edge. That's all you need to know. We'll let Lena do the rest of the talking ...show more

Review quote

Fast paced and consistently poignant, this tale quickly becomes hypnotically addictive ... A thoughtful, exciting and moving story that reminds us just how important love is. Devour it, then go and give all your friends a big hug. Heat A dystopian Romeo and Juliet story that deserves to be as massive as Twilight. Stylist Amazing, unputdownable! Grazia We're big fans of Lauren Oliver and this is the emotionally charged follow-up to last year's futuristic love story DELIRIUM. With echoes of Brave New World, we catch up with young heroine Lena as she attempts to survive in the dangerous Wilds ... Now we just have to wait for the final episode in the trilogy. -- Bella on PANDEMONIUM In the same mode as Suzanne Collins in her Hunger Games trilogy, Oliver, too, posits a feisty, physically able heroine, giving as good as she gets, in a fast-paced YA thriller: this trend is a welcome one. -- Independent on Sunday on PANDEMONIUM The new Hunger Games ... We loved the first two books, and spring sees the publication of the final instalment ... With a movie trilogy in the pipeline too, you'd better get reading! -- Cosmopolitan on REQUIEM Lena Haloway's journey will have readers breathlessly turning the pages ... A dystopian tour de force. -- Kirkus Reviews on REQUIEM We're big fans of Lauren Oliver and this is the emotionally charged follow-up to last year's futuristic love story DELIRIUM. With echoes of Brave New World, we catch up with young heroine Lena as she attempts to survive in the dangerous Wilds ... Now we just have to wait for the final episode in the trilogy. Bella 'We're big fans of Lauren Oliver and this is the emotionally charged follow-up to last year's futuristic love story DELIRIUM. With echoes of Brave New World, we catch up with young heroine Lena as she attempts to survive in the dangerous Wilds ... Now we just have to wait for the final episode in the trilogy.' Bella 'Now, finally, PANDEMONIUM is here ... It's a wonderfully dramatic, moving story ... full of suspenseful and heart-wrenching twists, with an epic ending that will guarantee that readers will be desperate to pick up the third and final book, REQUIEM.' theprettybooks.wordpress.com Thrilling and thought-provoking... Fast paced and consistently poignant, this tale quickly becomes hypnotically addictive. We almost missed our stop on the bus because we were so engrossed. Lena is a strong multi-faceted character and the future society in which she exists genuinely terrifying... A thoughtful, exciting and moving story that reminds us just how important love is. Devour it, then go and give all your friends a big hug. Heat Crackling with tension, Lauren Oliver's follow up to DELIRIUM is as whip smart and addictive as her dystopian debut. Marie Claire 'This book was amazing, Lauren has outdone herself... We see a completely different Lena than we did in Delirium. She grows into a much stronger person, in every way, character, mind and body. She is amazing... I can't wait to see what Requiem will hold for us.' paranormalbookfan.blogspot.com 'PANDEMONIUM by Lauren Oliver is a book I've been dying to read for such a long time ...There is much to love with this book. It's a lot darker in tone than DELIRIUM - Lena goes through some difficult times and emotions. There is a lot more violence and death and hard realities to be faced, but there is also the sweet beginnings of new love and the hopefulness of better things to come. This is an amazing, action-filled sequel fit to burst with emotion and surprises! I really recommend it!' flutteringbutterflies.com Prepare to become completely absorbed. Glamour Oliver is a considerably better writer than the Twilight creator - an adept and occasionally courageous storyteller who can shock and awe with a well-placed twist. Independent 'I loved PANDEMONIUM. It was a great addition to the series, and the ending is CRUEL. Seriously, Lauren Oliver REALLY knows how to write her cliffhangers. The last word on the last page ... Oh. My. Word. If you haven't read DELIRIUM yet, why not?! You're missing out - you should most definitely go and read it, right now. I think you'll love it. And then you'll read PANDEMONIUM and you'll love that too. So, what are you waiting for?' cheezyfeetbooks.blogspot.com 'Love being thought of as a disease is such an original idea ... There is a lot more action in this second story in the series ... I did have a few questions in my mind after reading DELIRIUM and a couple of them were answered in the second book but with those answers came even more questions, I can't wait to read the next book in the series.' YABookReads.com Beautifully written in Lauren Oliver's inimitable style. daisychainbookreviews.blogspot.co.uk Oliver writes in such a beautiful way, it's hard to put the book down. 5/5 Press Association 'Pandemonium is a gripping follow-up filled with suspenseful action and an engrossing story ... a gripping, beautifully written, action-packed read which offers up substantial character growth, introduces us to some great new characters and provides an enticing wider glimpse of the captivating world we saw in DELIRIUM.' atemporarydistraction.comshow more
