Pandemonium (Delirium Trilogy 2)

By Lauren Oliver

  • Hardback
  • £12.99

The eagerly anticipated sequel to the international bestseller Delirium, one of the most addictive books of 2011

Love, the deadliest of all deadly things.
It kills you when you have it.
And when you don't.

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.

Pandemonium is a poignant, explosive, recklessly romantic and utterly heartbreaking novel. Like Delirium, the first in the compelling trilogy, it will take you to the very edge. That's all you need to know. We'll let Lena do the rest of the talking . . .

'PANDEMONIUM by Lauren Oliver is a book I've been dying to read for such a long time . . .There is much to love with this book. It's a lot darker in tone than DELIRIUM - Lena goes through some difficult times and emotions. There is a lot more violence and death and hard realities to be faced, but there is also the sweet beginnings of new love and the hopefulness of better things to come. This is an amazing, action-filled sequel fit to burst with emotion and surprises! I really recommend it!' — flutteringbutterflies.com
Oliver writes in such a beautiful way, it's hard to put the book down. 5/5 — Press Association
'I loved PANDEMONIUM. It was a great addition to the series, and the ending is CRUEL. Seriously, Lauren Oliver REALLY knows how to write her cliffhangers. The last word on the last page . . . Oh. My. Word. If you haven't read DELIRIUM yet, why not?! You're missing out - you should most definitely go and read it, right now. I think you'll love it. And then you'll read PANDEMONIUM and you'll love that too. So, what are you waiting for?' — cheezyfeetbooks.blogspot.com
'Love being thought of as a disease is such an original idea . . . There is a lot more action in this second story in the series . . . I did have a few questions in my mind after reading DELIRIUM and a couple of them were answered in the second book but with those answers came even more questions, I can't wait to read the next book in the series.' — YABookReads.com
'Pandemonium is a gripping follow-up filled with suspenseful action and an engrossing story . . . a gripping, beautifully written, action-packed read which offers up substantial character growth, introduces us to some great new characters and provides an enticing wider glimpse of the captivating world we saw in DELIRIUM.' — atemporarydistraction.com

'You know when you start to read a book which is a sequel, you're a little nervous that it doesn't match the first and can often be a bit of a letdown? Well, nothing could be further from that with PANDEMONIUM, which I simply could not put down! ... Like DELIRIUM it's beautifully written, conveying all the required imagery and emotion, and presenting wonderful characters to unfold a story which is simply electrifying in parts. In the final chapters I was so engrossed I was still reading at 1.30am, and once I was finished the book I was so overwhelmed I just couldn't sleep. If you don't read another book this year - you must read this, but make sure you have loads of time because you won't want to put it down.' — mykeepershelf.blogspot.com
'Honestly I could not wait to read this! The moment I had it in my hands I had to read it and I think I loved it even more than DELIRIUM!

'I have literally just finished reading PANDEMONIUM and I am completely reeling! It's incredible!... I don't really know what to say other than wow!
.. As with any book written by Oliver, PANDEMONIUM is written so beautifully!... I came close to tears at some of Oliver's descriptions, they were so beautiful! The way this lady writes leaves me in complete awe! There is a killer, killer cliffhanger, one that rivals that of DELIRIUM, and I cannot believe Oliver has done it to us again! I am absolutely dying for REQUIEM!'

— onceuponabookcase.blogspot.com
'Lena was a fantastic character again and I enjoyed her growth in this. She did have a level of strength in PANDEMONIUM but it felt partly like a stubborn strength and partly like a forced because of circumstances strength. In this book you definitely feel Lena becoming tougher, more resilient, not only physically but mentally and emotionally. Not only that, but she does so willing, actively, and that's something I really admired about her character... A fast-paced and well written read. I will absolutely be reading the 3rd instalment and I wish we could have it NOW. ' — thecaitfiles.blogspot.com
'Lauren Oliver's writing is tight, full of wonderful metaphors and language and pulled me into Lena's world. The emotions are raw, visceral and the opening section of then when she is running in the wilds was utterly heartbreaking. I dare you not to be moved by it. Oliver has a gift for simple, beautiful images and her words are clearly carefully chosen. This is the sort of book that can be shelved in the young adult or the adult section and has a mature, but not pompous, narrative style. I recommend a book like this for people who say YA is poor writing so they can see how wrong they are . . . I absolutely adored this book and could not put it down! I highly recommend it to all YA fans and readers.' — chooseya.com
