The narrator did such a fantastic job too! This series should have been a movie before Divergent , though I love both.
I have taught my two boys at home for the last 8 years. A love of literature of all kinds led me to Audible.
Reviewing ongoing stories is difficult precisely because the stories are not meant to stand alone. Oliver bridges the gap between the beginning and the end of her tale perfectly just like she writes everything else. The suspense, the rich detail, and Drew as the powerful narrator that she is make this a favorite performance. ..until I finish listening to the 3rd book, Requiem.
If you haven't listened to Delirium (first book in three part series), then do yourself a favor and read it first, before Pandemonium. This is part 2 of a 3 part series.
The narrator, Sarah Drew, is amazing and totally brings this story to life by her character voices and intonations. If nothing more, listen to this book for her. The author isn't half bad, either. LOL
Lena is growing into adulthood in a terrible world where people don't like to "feel" things, unless they are infected with the disease of Love. The ragtag group that Lena hangs with becomes very close knit and as much of a family as they can be. Sometimes emotions run high, but satisfyingly meaty.
i burned through book two. I saw that ending coming. i enjoyed the book. Hearing Sarah Drew's voice and hearing Kepner in that voice kinda gives the book more "texture" (to me).
Will get into the last book soon enough.
I remember reading that someone said that the main character comes into her own in this book. I completely agree with that statement. I pretty much read the first book to get through it and find out the ending. This book, however, I truly enjoyed. I'm excited to read the next one!
Good storytelling. The reading performance continues to be perfect for the book.
It's been fun so far to follow the arch of this story- the beginning was a bit hard to get into because it didn't take up where it left questions in the last book and the change between time lines hat were being followed was understandable but a bit disorienting- overall, it was worth the read.
This book was predictable but still interesting. It's very similar to the selection series where the girl hates what the guy stands for but ends up living him only to run back into her ex. I'm giving it s 4 because it makes an interesting set up for the 3rd book which I hope to start soon.
Audiobook addict but if I go through the trouble to write a review, I must feel VERY strongly about it.
Want to make aware first that this is more "mature" with some cussing and intense passion moments. I could not stop listening. It is soo enthralling. I already want to listen again. love the intensity.
