    Where does Pandemonium rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I think of the 2 audio books i have already bought I would rank this as the best.

    I loved the ending the most. It was unexpected and kind of bittersweet (since the last book doesn't come out until 2013)


    Which character – as performed by Sarah Drew – was your favorite?

    Lena, of course. I also really like Julian Fineman.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Pandemonium to be better than the print version?

    Yes. The narrator makes a huge difference. She really makes you feel like you are there.

    Without giving away too much, My favorite scene was when she was rushed into a van tryin to take "a strangers" mask off.


    Any additional comments?

    Story
    "A bit of a let down"

    I was enthralled with the first book in this trilogy, Delirium. The intensity of living in the city with prying eyes always on the main character, Lena, and the forbidden love of the couple adds a layer to the story that's hard to top. Pandemonium was good, but just not AS good as the first. The story line changes so drastically because of the change in scenery and Alex getting shot at the end of the first book. Lena, too, changes in so many ways that she's hardly the same girl from Delirium. Although that may have been true to Lena's journey, it was a disapointment for me. I was hoping for the next chapter in Lena's story but instead, read a book about an entirely different girl. I was super dissapointed that she didn't spend more time mourning Alex or searching for his family in the wilds he introduced her to on their first trip out. Despite these criticisms, I did enjoy the book - the writing is still excellent and the narrator is superb. I'm excitedly looking forward to the final book, whenever that comes out. Also, (no spoilers) but I saw the ending coming and was dissapointed that Lena didn't.

    It never stopped, and it was even better than the first book. It was just captivating.


    How has the book increased your interest in the subject matter?

    Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?

    What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

    N/A


    Do you have any additional comments?

    Did I mention that it's better than the first one? I just loved it. I highly recommend this series. The first book was a little more young adult-ish. This one is for all ages and captivating for anyone who can read.
