Remember how I didn’t really love Delirium? How I couldn’t connect with the characters and found the plot kind of dull? Well, that is most certainly not the case with Pandemonium! I absolutely adored it!
Lena was a much more interesting characters now that she’s been un-brainwashed, but I still found it difficult to connect with her in the beginning. Luckily there were so many other spectacular characters to fill in the holes before the end, by which Lena had grown into a powerful heroine.
The setting was drastically different, but in a good way. In Delirium, the world they live in feels white-washed and drab, whereas the world in Pandemonium felt warm and vivid and exciting.
The way the book was written in two alternating perspectives was really different. It tells the story through two separate storylines that eventually meet up somewhere in the middle. The way they wove into each other flawlessly was beautiful.
And speaking of beautiful, have you ever reading anything written by Lauren Oliver? Because she is a word genius. Her writing is perfect and delicious. It flows smoothly and effortlessly and perfectly tells the story. I would happily read anything she writes, whether it be another bestselling novel or a shopping list!
