Pandemonium (Delirium Series #2)

Pandemonium (Delirium Series #2) - oh my God, oh my God, Oh my God! That had me going over and over by the end to the end. I knew eventually that something's going to happen and it will happen, but still, I am floored! Yet I question myself: What just happened?I would not expect Pandemonium on how it turned out to be, which is actually good. Not what I had in mind for a sequel which almost makes me say that it's a totally different story once one didn't get to read the first one. A build up of circumstance and a whole lot of new characters, a far cry from what I would have thought. I've said this before and I'll say it again: there's really something about sequels and companion books that makes the series a lot more interesting to read and finish. Reading this reminds me of eating a rocky road ice cream, though not really my kind of flavor but sometimes I crave for one - there's soft and creamy then there's the rough and crunchy. Distinctively, everyone who've read understands the placing. I am surprised how fast everything went. The pace, the events, the people which seems to just come and go, like, for a moment they're there and the next they're gone and you're never gonna hear from them again; this makes up the whole point in this book because everything is a fast movement as fast as a paparazzi clicks in continuous mode. Lena. This is just all about her now. I'm glad she transforms form a helpless damsel in distress to a dauntless amazon, well amazon is too strong for a word, more like a kick-ass heroine. She have grown up and out of the rubbles of her old life, of the things and the people she used to care about. The solidity and integrity she'd develop. Judging what she'd been through in the Wilds has been no joke. Surviving for oneself and for others is like an agenda and it sure is not easy. Basically, the story is told in two phases: THEN and NOW. I fell for most of the characters that it's a shame when a person dies, not for a sole reason that they lost the but they bring honorary justice. All through out, I keep curling and uncurling my hands not from anger and agitation but merely to the pressure and momentum has taken up inside me. And I can't blame myself for that feeling nor can't I blame Lena for falling for the person she once thought was her enemy. I think: Great, another love triangle. But Julian will always be the sweet and innocent boy for me and still I root for Alex. "There is no before. There is only now, and what comes next."4.5 out 5I seriously am clawing to get a hold of the third book. I don't think I can wait. The anticipation is killing me. Lauren Oliver, you rock!! xx
