Book Review: Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver (Book 2)

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

Genre: Dystopian Fiction

Age Recommended: 15 and up

This book was written in a significantly different style than the one before it, and I really enjoyed that even though it made the ending more predictable. I think this might also be the best second book of a trilogy that I’ve read and any doubts I had about continuing the series after the first book are definitely gone.

Lena has escaped into the wild. Taken in by the Invalids that live outside of the borders of the cities, she learns how to survive in the wilderness and begins to understand the way of life of people who haven’t been cured. The problem is that governments are beginning to crack down harder on rebels, limiting the food stolen and delivered to the wild, and the arrival of winter means that what can be scavenged from nature is meager as well.

When the people helping Lena decide to move encampments, she follows them, and survives attacks from Scavengers, a group of Invalids that have decided that nothing is worth saving. Lena then goes undercover in Brooklyn, one of the largest cities, as a cured girl who still needs to finish her education. Her task is to simply observe the government organization in charge of the cure and learn as much as she can.

What Lena doesn’t count on is being a pawn in a game much larger than she can imagine…
