many shitty seuels that could make me enthusiastic about reading them But I really should ve nown better than shitty seuels that could make me enthusiastic about reading them But I really should ve nown better than doubt Lauren OliverIn Pandemonium Lena is having to survive in the Wilds with her new friends is having to prove herself worthy to be in the resistance and is having to forget the boy who made her rebel in the first place infected her Alex I Know That In Delirium A Number Of People I now that in Delirium #A Number Of People #number of people find Lena that ick ass heroine that we all love in her defense all those rules would scare me too into rebelling But in Pandemonium I feel that she definitely redeemed herself Now without all those regulations and boundaries Lena was able to unleash her inner survivalist which wasn t a very easy thing to do after all that she s been through She even is deemed strong enough by her fellow rebels to be part of the resistance I definitely saw of Lena in action scenes and winning in this book than in the previous So I definitely think of her as part of the ick ass heroine club nowI also now that a lot of you didn t really like the fact that Lena is allegedly going to fall in love with someone other than Alex and I m sorry to tell you guys but that fact is true If that is enough for you to run away screaming from this book by all means do but let me just tell you now you are missing out on a hell of a lot of goodies if you do that I have to admit though I did Elisabeth Shue 135 Success Facts - Everything You Need to Know about Elisabeth Shue kind of dislike Lena s new love interest It might be because he for me was a little naive or it could be plainly just because he wasn t Alex Also at times I felt that their relationship was a little forced The love interest Julian would say weird things like your hair smells like roses or your waist is so small yes that not only creeped Lena out but creeped me out too I don tnow if it was just lack of being around females that made him act this way and trust me I go to an all girls school and whenever a person of the opposite walks by my beloved classmates throw themselves at him or what but I was pretty skeptical of him at first After a while though and getting to The Man Without a Face know his character he grew on me but of course before it got than that the ending got in the way of everything as expressed in the mini review aboveAn aspect of the book I really enjoyed was Lena s life in the Wilds In Delirium we didn t really get to experience the Wilds too much and that was something I was really looking forward to in this book As cool as I thought it would be living in the Wilds it ended up not being the paradise that I was expecting It was actually pretty brutal out there and with the addition of Scavengers Invalids that attack just foricks it became even harder to survive out there I uite liked all the new characters too Raven Tack Hunter Loved them and the fact that they gave birth to Lena in the woods as Lena said about Raven in the book Other than creepy Julian and the random add of Scavengers and the possible future love triangle as hinted in the ending of Pandemonium I very very much enjoyed this book and you have no idea how much I m craving for the next and final book But I guess after that iller cliff hanger who wouldn 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. .
