Pandemeium by Lauren Oliver
just when i think i figured Lauren Oliver out, she proves me wrong.
I absolutely loved this one, and its end!! although i’m not sure liked the “then ” part.
How Lauren described the wilds, was pretty amazing, i loved every word of it, although i didn’t like being transmitted to new york whenever i dive into the wilds.
but i really loved how Lena had grown up and become more tough , and how she and Julian interacted at first kept me on edge, and i couldn’t help comparing him to Alex.
And god the ending! what a cliffhanger ! it got me open-mouthed; i just had to start book 3 right here and right now.
When Lena find herself trying to survive the wilds, after seeing Alex in at the fences when they were running away, could she get over it and enjoy her freedom at the wilds?
“Grief is like sinking, like being buried. I am in water the tawny color of kicked-up dirt. Every breath is full of choking. There is nothing to hold on to, no sides, no way to claw myself up. There is nothing to do but let go.
Let go. Feel the weight all around you, feel the squeezing of your lungs, the slow, low pressure. Let yourself go deeper. There is nothing but bottom. There is nothing but the taste of metal, and the echoes of old things, and days that look like darkness.”
