#36: Pandemonium - Lauren Oliver

(If graphic doesn't load, refresh page)

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 bestseller, Delirium. This riveting, brilliant novel crackles with the fire of fierce defiance, forbidden romance, and the sparks of a revolution about to ignite.

Hardcover: 384 pages
Publisher: HarperCollins (February 28, 2012)
ISBN: 9780061978067

Author Bio:
Lauren Oliver was previously an editorial assistant at a publishing company in New York. A graduate of the University of Chicago and the MFA Program at New York University, she is now a full-time writer. She divides her time between Brooklyn, New York, and anywhere her friends will let her crash on their sofas. She enjoys reading, writing, cooking, running, dancing, and yes, long walks on the beach (or, more practically, along New York City streets). Please visit her on the web at www.laurenoliverbooks.com.


My Review for Book 1, Delirium.

My Opinion:
Now I'm done this book and am asking myself if there is going to be more? I really hope so. Now that there is a triangle of sorts, I want to know how that will play out.
Another beautifully written story by Lauren. Taking readers on a deep journey through a world that is not so far fetched, but imaginable enough to steal your interests.
I like Lena even more in this book than the first. I just wish she would learn to trust herself more. Maybe in book 3 she will have that self-confidence.
This is definitely a series I am still recommending to readers, but make sure to start with Delirium.


5/5


Recommend? Only after reading Delirium.

How Reading Helps Your Brain

The brain is one of the most complex biological structures that scientists and doctors have ever encountered. It is like a machine that runs non-stop that has the computing power to be able to make very complex decisions and experience unexplainable phenomena like emotions. The brain controls every other organ in the body so it is arguably the most important one. Unfortunately, probably due to its brilliance, it is a fairly vulnerable structure that can and does degrade over time.
Many experts agree that one of the best ways to maintain the health of the brain is to keep it active, just as you would with your muscles to keep them strong. There are also a number of nutrients that are very important to maintaining a healthy brain and preventing its decline.
