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
    "Wow!!"
    If you could sum up Pandemonium in three words, what would they be?

    Enthralling, engaging, engrossing


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story-telling is strong in this book. The author has a beautiful turn of phrase and Sarah Drew performs very well. The overall arc of the story is excellent.


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

    Lena


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

    I loved this book. I *never* have 'driveway moments' (when you can't get out of the car because you're wanting to see what happens next) but the end of this book totally had me trapped in my car.


    Any additional comments?

    It's so rare for a 2nd book in a trilogy to eclipse the first - but this one totally does. I can't wait to see what book 3 holds!

    For anyone who loved the Hunger Games, give this series a try - it's right up there.

    Story
    "Shocking...young adult book with a love triangle"

    I like the main idea of this book, I didn't like that she added the love triangle. It is sort of lame to me, and I never really felt the chemistry with the new love interest. He was ok... but book one was much better with the love interest, you really cared a lot about them and felt like they were connected. This book I feel like he was just the first eligible guy she met so she liked him.... I am also so sick of the love triangle thing... the idea of this story is really cool I don't think she needed to add the "love triangle twist".
    but that being said, if you read book one you will want to see what happens and the adventure is really good. The main character really grows up and becomes really strong. this book is worth a listen if you read book one.

    "A Strong Second book in the Trillogy!"

    I loved this book just as much as the first in this series, DELIRIUM. It is quite different since we now know the set up and characters. The main character, Lena, morns her losses while establishing a new life for herself in the Wilds. This novel (series) is so well written. I thourally enjoyed the journey. I still need to read the 3rd novel in this trillogy and i am eagerly waiting for it to come to audio format too. If you don't mind reading YA novels, and enjoy stories about dystopian societies, you too will love this book - i am sure of it!

    "Dying for the next book!"
    What did you like best about this story?

    It's unpredictable. I like that I have no idea where this is going to end up!


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

    She is really great at bringing the characters to life and makes you really root for them!

    Story
    "Engaging and Suspenseful"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Pandemonium to be better than the print version?

    I did not read the print version of Pandemonium although I may do so since I enjoyed the audio version.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The book interweaved two different time periods throughout the narrative. It was well done and maintained a coherent theme in which the two stories complemented one another.


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

    Listening to Pandemonium was in some ways a chilling experience. The descriptions of society as it existed in the novel were disturbing, particularly the contrast between those people who still showed emotion and those who remained dispiritingly indifferent.

    The ending!


    What about Sarah Drew’s performance did you like?

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

    The death of Blue!

    Worth the precious credit.

    Story
    "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!

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

    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.
