The sequel to Delerium was so good. I enjoy a good love triangle and this one was great. I also loved the characters that Lena makes a life with in the wilds. I loved trying to imagine what it would be like to be in their situation, and have to survive in a world like that.
No it was very exciting and romantic.It was veryinteresting the way she developed her characters
I liked how the relationships changed during course of story
yes narration very good
I love all kinds of books but don't really read them anymore I would rather listen to them but I will still buy the book if I love it enough to collect it.
It was a wonderful book and I would suggest it to any one who likes a bit of fun and drama
YA writer and book lover!
I like the idea of love being a disease that is outlawed. However this book is truly a setup for the series. I say this because the plot was slow moving and drawn out and there was a lot of explaining and discussing the disease of love. It was like beat me over the head with the concept why don't you. Needless to say, I didn't like that approach to introducing the series since the concept is easily understood. Worth reading though to get on with what I think overall is a good series (based on 2nd book).
The narrator reads like she's in a beat poetry contest. Anything that any character says is read like it ends in a question mark. The book itself is utterly predictable, not particularly believable, and boring to boot. I couldn't care less what happens to any of them, and most of what happens in 'the wilds' makes no sense at all. It's hard to tell how much of it is the story vs. the awful narration, but this was difficult to get through.
After enjoying Delerium so much I was somewhat less enamored with the follow-up. Honestly I can't say why and would still buy the next in the series and recommend both to anyone who enjoys a distopian society tale for young adults.
The ending going to blow your mind
no..probably in three sittings lol
the book is very interesting but the first book a lot better. Also it was too much romance for me.
I loved the story but either there were file problems on the audio or there was a serious glitch in the writing. I kept getting switched between time lines as though some files were misnumbered andthe timeline was out of order. One minute she's being held captive by the scavengers and the next she's with Raven, then back with the scavengers. This happened repeatedly and it didn't in the first novel of the series. If it's a flashback, there's nothing to indicate that there is a change in time. As much as I enjoyed the audio version, it was very confusing and disjointed.
I rather expected it, frankly.
Sarah did a great job with the performance.
No. The closest I came to an extreme reaction was the frustration with the timeline.
Pandemonium could have been better had the author eliminated some of the unnecessary cursing. I’m not opposed to authors using curse words when it calls for it, however, it felt out of place throughout the entire novel. Furthermore, I found the story itself to be choppy and predictable; the transition between her dream state and reality was rough and at first confusing. The story line itself could have used some improvement. I understand this novel is intended for a younger generation and at that age our hormones are fluttering every direction. I don’t believe the intensity of the intimate parts is appropriate.
I listened to the second novel in hopes the story line and writing might improve. I did not observe this in the second novel. It might have actually worsened! I will not be reading/listening to another Lauren Oliver novel again.
I enjoy Veronica Roth's narrator. She has a range to her voice and it's soothing.
I would work on the intimate moments and the transitions between her dreams and reality. I would remove almost all of the cursing as it is unnecessary.
I LOVED the first book in this trilogy so I will read the third just to give it one last chance before i close the book on Lauren Oliver. Im not a huge fan of Sarah Drew.... but she is definitely not the worst. I think I would stray away from any other work she does. Her change in character voices makes them sound childish and not pleasant to hear. It seems as if she doesn't read the book ahead of time and so her voice doesn't match the description.
It has made me very wary of the next book i choose!!
a different narrator with better acting skills
Julian! i found myself wishing he would die, or just cease to exist!! i hated him with all my heart:-( the book did evoke great emotion from me, i just don't think it was the kind meant by the Author
