Publisher's Summary

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.

Lauren Oliver delivers an electrifying follow-up to her acclaimed New York Times best seller, Delirium. This riveting, brilliant novel crackles with the fire of fierce defiance, forbidden romance, and the sparks of a revolution about to ignite.

    Story
    "Good read if a tiny bit predictable"
    What made the experience of listening to Pandemonium the most enjoyable?

    The narrator did well. The story was interesting and different but you could see sometimes what was going to happen. Still as a sequel it was gripping. It kept me listening. The ending was as I stated not unexpected and so I probably won't continue with the series. Still up to this point it was and is a very well written story if a bit unbelievable with the heroines almost super human strength and endurance.


    Any additional comments?

    This series is a great summer read especially if you are coming off a Hunger Games addiction.

    Story
    "Great sequal to Delirium"
    Where does Pandemonium rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The Delirium/Pandemonium series rank in my top five.


    What other book might you compare Pandemonium to and why?

    The Delirium/Pandemonium series is similar to The Hunger Games or Divergent series in that they are placed in an alternate future (dystopian), but that's really where the similiarities end.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I enjoyed watching (in my mind) to Lena and Julian's relationship develop in the holding room.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Definately. I think I listened to it off and on, but finished in one day. Didn't want to turn it off. Then of course, we're stuck waiting for the third and final book in the series.


    Any additional comments?

    I love reading/listening to series, but if you're not the patient type, you might want to wait until the series is complete before buying them.

    "I liked Delirium better!"

    I just felt like Delirium was written better, this book made me feel like it wasn't meant to be a series but they stretched the story to make it one. I tend to like YA books, but after reading this one I am wondering if i am starting to outgrow them.

    Story
    "Predictable Pandemonium"

    I think the format and the energy of this book was much better than the first. The alternate storylines between the past and present had a good pace for the novel. The past storyline seemed to end abruptly.

    The major plot twists were really predictable, but I still enjoyed the action-packed novel. I'll probably read the next one to see where the cliffhanger leads.

    "Great YA read"
    Any additional comments?

    This "young adult" book is one that I probably would not have read in a book form, but I loved having it read to me! I like to know what kinds of books my kids are reading, and I always end up enjoying them too!

    "Good story, hate the narration"

    I might like to be more sensitive, but the narrator ruined this for me. I read the first book and couldn't wait for the second story. This narrator killed it. Who directed this and why didn't they correct her? The teenage angst and drama is inherent in the story and the narrator oooooozzzed drama and angst in every sentence. Way over done. Good story, I say read it on paper.

    As a mom of teenagers, I spend a lot of time in the car, and a lot of that time is spent listening to Audible. Because of that, I tend to listen to a lot of YA novels, and my reviews will include the "Mom View" of cussing, sexuality, etc...

    Story
    "Strong story, good narration"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would, if that person were a teenager. There is still the ongoing dramatic introspection and over-thinking by the main character that I, as an adult, found tedious and melodramatic, but I suppose teenagers actually *do*...


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Pandemonium?

    The ending; not because I was in a hurry to get there, but it was exciting and left me eager to read the third book in the series.


    Have you listened to any of Sarah Drew’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, and once again she delivers a good, if not great, listening experience. It may be that I would like her more if she were reading something less... melodramatic.


    Any additional comments?

    I usually listen to the Young Adult section to avoid anything inappropriate for teen listeners, as I usually listen in my car, which is often full of teens. Be warned, however, that this series does have some scenes of mild sexuality (partial nudity, kissing) and there is cussing, including the "F-bomb."

    What did you love best about Pandemonium?

    I liked the story line and the way the author gave the main character strenght and courage to go forward when everything seemed lost.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked that Lena was able to pick up the pieces of her life and build a new life for herself without giving up her identity.

    Lena


    Any additional comments?

    Love, love, love this book. I loved the new characters specially Raven and Julian. I can't wait to read the next one.
