STOP. This page is a SPOILER PAGE for the book Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver. Do not proceed if you have not read this book.
Ok. It has been nearly a year since I have read Delirium so I may be a bit rusty on how it all ended but I have to say I was surprised that Alex did not make it (yes, I know about later… but I mean in the beginning). I remember he was wounded but I thought it was a bold move, and probably brilliant of Lauren Oliver to put Lena on the other side alone and knowing no one. PLUS of course if opened up the door to further spreading of the disease…LOL, yeah, I mean the “L” word.
I loved the book I really did but think I found a glitch in it… then again I think it cant be a glitch as it is too easy a one but apparently I need someone to tell me where this happened and why I have it wrong, as I must have it wrong…
Anyhoo…. so Lena gets to the Wilds and learns quickly that they live by bare minimum standards and that means no silverware. Then there is a shipment of supplies and everyone oohs and ahs as things come out of the boxes, I recall no mention of silverware… then we get to where Lena hauls water and she is exhausted and famished and the book says “she could barely hang on to her fork”…. I had a head ache today so did not have the patience to flip back through and see when the silverware arrived bu maybe you could tell me. 😀
I am hoping in the third book they tie the two-story lines together as I (we) still don’t know how Lena got from the Wilds with Tack and Raven and living in New York. As I write this I wonder if in the third book it will flash back to what Alex has been doing all this time and tell his side because seriously….
HELLO….. I did not see that coming. AND while it is a super cool ending…. I am a little annoyed as I really like Lena and Julian together… AND if Raven knew… well that makes me mad too…and anxious.
Ok your thoughts… loved it, hated it, tell all here 😀
