Book Review: Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver

Mar 01, 2012

Joining the wilds is more than Lena bargained for in Pandemonium, the sequel to Delirium by NY Times bestselling author Lauren Oliver. Kidzworld has the book review!

Then

After escaping into the wilds without her beloved Alex, Lena must learn to survive through hard labour and the extremities. She joins a group of Invalids who live on few supplies and travel from homestead to homestead as the weather changes. Opting out of her procedure that would remove her ability to love, Lena was forced into this hard life.

Now

Presently, Lena and a few other Invalids are in New York City posing as law-abiding citizens. Lena is assigned the task of keeping an eye on Julian, the teenage son of the DFA chairman, who is a spokesperson for the cure. But when he gets kidnapped, Lena must suffer the same fate. During their imprisonment, Lena learns that there’s more to Julian than she thought, a curiosity about love and all its forbidden wonders.

Lena struggles with her growing feelings for Julian because she’s still in love with Alex. Even though he died at the hands of the regulators, her conscience won’t let her move on.

The Bottom Line

Alternating between her arrival in the wilds and her present predicament, Pandemonium is filled with fast-paced adventure, and all the brutal laws and ruthless characters that make dystopian novels so wonderful. If you haven't read book 1, Delirium, definitely check it out first. If you already have, you’ll love Pandemonium.

We are planning to go for a cruise trip from Boston to Montreal. I’ve never been in Montreal. Since this is my first time. I’m too excited.  While searching online I found Blount Small Ship Adventures and they seem good. We are a group of 6 adults and 2 children. I'm a little bit worried about the children. Has anyone been there before? What can I expect?
