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.

    "Sure to please"
    What did you love best about Pandemonium?

    The ending!


    What about Sarah Drew’s performance did you like?

    She is dimensional with her characters and it is phenominal work.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The death of Blue!


    Any additional comments?

    Worth the precious credit.

    "Exquisitely detailed and riviting"

    Once you get past the bizarre premise of this trilogy, this book takes you away...It is an escape... it is an adventure that you can see, smell and taste. I couldn't stop listening! My husband even enjoyed it! My only complaint: the final book has not been released yet!
    Enjoy the ride :)

    "OMG this book was amazing!!!"
    Where does Pandemonium rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I really loved this book. I liked it more than the first book for sure.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Pandemonium?

    I didn't think at first I would like it, but the past/present format of the book really worked for me! It was very cinematic for me, flashbacks are very cool. I could picture how it would look in a movie, so that was great.


    What about Sarah Drew’s performance did you like?

    Spunky, fun voices.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    What is up with these endings???? Lauren Oliver, you're killing me! When does Requiem come out? What is going to happen??? I need to know right now!

    "Great story!"
    What made the experience of listening to Pandemonium the most enjoyable?

    The narrator did a great job you really felt like you were in the story


    What does Sarah Drew bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She pulls you into the story and brings the characters to life.

    Story
    "Very good, but not great."
    Where does Pandemonium rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Pandemonium is the fast-paced sequel to Delirium by Lauren Oliver. It's not my all-time favorite audiobook, but I did enjoy it.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story picks up where Delirium left off, and doesn't waste too much time re-telling the original story. Although the story was good, I preferred Delirium. The timeline in Pandemonium bounces back and forth between the past and the present, making it important for you to pay attention to the words "NOW" and "THEN" at the beginning of each chapter. Pandemonium was at times a bit predictable and the main character, Lena, seemed to whine a bit too much for my liking. I do, however, love the characters and am eager to see what happens in the next installation of the story.


    What does Sarah Drew bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Sarah Drew does a good job with the narration, but there are a couple of times when her voice was too quiet for me to hear the words clearly.


    Any additional comments?

    Although this review may seem harsh, I DID enjoy the audio and I am anxiously awaiting the next installment.

    Story
    "Definitely a Middle Book"

    Lauren Oliver is a great writer, with lovely prose. She has created characters that are real, full, believable. Her dystopian world is stark, violent, disturbing. It's a world where emotion is disease and anathema, but the removal of such leaves people with no capacity for care or compassion, much less the deeper emotions.

    In Pandemonium, Lena struggles to cope with her new life in the Wilds, with the rebels, fighting to survive. It is clearly a middle book, the story moving to a climax that can only be resolved in the as yet published Requiem.

    It isn't as good as Delirium, but I still enjoyed the book. The narrator is excellent.

    Now I'm with the others waiting for book 3.

    Story
    "Looking at the stars, I obviously loved this book!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely, I would, and have already! I loved the uniqueness of the main story, we've all read the boy meets girl and falls in love although it's forbidden, but it's the WHY that I found so interesting.


    What did you like best about this story?

    As I just stated, the circumstances under which the characters try to live was something I've not seen/read before. It had me wondering ” What if that were real?”. It certainly kept me interested and entertained.


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

    All of them, but Hana and Lena are my favorite!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Oh heck, I don't know, lol.


    Any additional comments?

    Read this book,and the others

    "a great follow up to book 1"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Really enjoyed the continuation of the story from book 1. The book flips back and forth between past and present and I liked that. A good way of giving context to the events in the current time.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Pandemonium?

    The ending. I won't spoil it but there was a significant surprise. Can't wait for book three to see how that all unfolds.


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

    Yes. I didn't listen to it in all one sitting, but did listen to it fairly quickly.

    "Great follow up!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Pandemonium to be better than the print version?

    This is a great follow up to Delirium. Can't wait for Requiem! It expands on so much of the world Lena now lives in and we meet a whole new bunch of characters.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The introduction of the new characters, I connected with them much more than I did with the characters of Delirium.


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

    I have only listened to Sarah Drew in this series and I liked her narration in both Delirium and Pandemonium.

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

    I prefer audio books over reading, but that's just me!!!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Pandemonium?

    The very end!

    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    It's A Small World After All
