Revue de presse

“From the grief-stricken shell of her former self to a nascent refugee and finally to a full-fledged resistance fighter, Lena’s strength and the complexity of her internal struggles will keep readers up at night.” (Kirkus Reviews (starred review))

“This is a romance in the purest of senses, where just the longing for the faintest taste of love is worth the greatest of risks. Like all successful second volumes, this expands the world and ups the stakes, setting us up for the big finale.” (Booklist)

“After this second book, fans of Oliver and of dystopian fiction will be clamoring for the final installment of the trilogy.” (Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA))

“If...you crave the heart-stopping action of the arena from The Hunger Games combined with a destined-to-be-doomed love story then this sequel is perfect for you!” (Seventeen.com)

“Following directly on the heels of Delirium, Pandemonium is equally riveting. The underlying theme that love will win out regardless of prohibition is a powerful idea that will speak to teens.” (School Library Journal)

“The gasp-worthy final page sets the stage for a promising conclusion to this trilogy.” (Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books)

Praise for Delirium:“In [Oliver’s] dystopian America, love has been outlawed as the life-threatening source of all discord. Lena’s gradual awakening is set against a convincing backdrop of totalitarian horror. The abrupt ending leaves enough unanswered questions to set breathless readers up for volume two of this trilogy.” (Kirkus Reviews (starred review))

Praise for Delirium:“Strong characters, a vivid portrait of the lives of teens in a repressive society, and nagging questions that can be applied to our world today make this book especially compelling and discussable.” (School Library Journal (starred review))

Praise for Delirium:“Oliver’s deeply emotional and incredibly well-honed prose commands the readers’ attention and captures their hearts. With a pulse-pounding tempo and unforeseen twists and turns, Lauren Oliver has opened the door on a fantastic new series; the second book can’t come soon enough.” (New York Journal of Books)

Praise for Delirium:“In a thick climate of fear, Oliver spins out a suspenseful story of awakening and resistance with true love at its core.” (The Horn Book)

Praise for Before I Fall:“Oliver’s debut novel is raw, emotional, and, at times, beautiful....readers will love Samantha best as she hurtles toward an end as brave as it is heartbreaking.” (Publishers Weekly (starred review))

Praise for Before I Fall:“Samantha’s attempts to save her life and right the wrongs she has caused are precisely what will draw readers into this complex story and keep them turning pages until Sam succeeds in living her last day the right way.” (Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA) (Starred Review))

Praise for Before I Fall:“Oliver, in a pitch-perfect teen voice, explores the power we have to affect the people around us in this intensely believable first novel...This is a compelling book with a powerful message and should not be missed.” (ALA Booklist)

Praise for Before I Fall:“This story races forward, twisting in a new direction every few pages, its characters spinning my emotions from affection to frustration, anger to compassion. You’ll have no choice but to tear through this book!” (Jay Asher, author of the New York Times bestseller Thirteen Reasons Why)

Praise for Before I Fall:“Before I Fall is smart, complex, and heartbreakingly beautiful. Lauren Oliver has written an extraordinary debut novel about what it means to live—and die.” (Carolyn Mackler, author of Tangled and The Earth, My Butt, and Other Big Round Things, a Printz Honor book) --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Relié .

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Une bonne suite 30 mai 2012
Par Softymel
Format:Format Kindle avec audio/vidéo|Achat authentifié par Amazon
Cette suite de délirium continu parfaitement le premier tome, malgré un petit rebondissement final qui m'a quand même déçu. Mais ce genre de rebondissement (que je ne détaillerai pas pour éviter le spoil) est un risque à courir quand on lit des romans "jeunes adultes" j'imagine...

Grosse déception... Après avoir lu Delirium (mon livre préféré), j'attendais beaucoup de ce deuxième tome. Malheureusement, l'histoire a pris un tournant que je trouve fort regrettable. J'ai tout de même aimé le livre, même s'il n'égale en rien le premier tome...

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Blazing and intense, very strong second novel in a trilogy, beautiful prose, well paced, another triumph for Lauren Oliver! 28 février 2012
Par Christina (Ensconced in Lit) - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat authentifié par Amazon
I have been a huge fan of Lauren Oliver since her debut novel, Before I Fall, which remains in my top five favorite works. Because of my high regard for that book, I eagerly blazed through her dystopian novel, Delirium. There were several reasons why I was let down by that book, possibly mostly due to high expectations. It was much slower paced, possibly because it was spread into a trilogy, and I was not as invested in Lena (to me, she was almost too innocent and uncertain) and did not feel very attached to Alex, her love interest. I felt he was too straight of a character, without the many layers and depth that I was used to in Before I Fall.

I bring this up in this review because the second novel in this trilogy, which so often ends up being the "filler" book in many trilogies, surpasses the first in all of these areas and more.

Pandemonium picks up right where Delirium ends in the aftermath of Lena making it to the Wilds, with Alex presumably left behind and killed. This book is composed as a series of flashbacks of her life in the Wilds and her present time as an active part of the Resistance.

This book again showcases Lauren Oliver's gorgeous prose. She writes so beautifully and poignantly in a way I have not seen matched currently. Furthermore, the pacing of this book is much better than the first. We are immediately thrust into the dangerous Wilds and the difficult life that Lena is now adapting. Lena has developed into a much more interesting character, with hardened edges from the terrible tragedies she has experienced and the difficult life she now leads. Then, we are introduced to Julian, the head of the Cured activist group. I immediately was drawn to him in ways that I was never with Alex. Instead of a straightforward protagonist, Julian is multifaceted; a character with depth, feeling, and emotion, who changes with experience and develops meaningful relationships.

I also want to mention that while I was never surprised by any of the secrets revealed during this novel (and there are several), I welcomed all of them. I thought they were well thought out and necessary-- the exact right moves. When I was in my fiction writing class at Stanford, my teacher once told us to trap two very different characters in a place and just see what happens. I imagine that might have been exactly what happened for Julian and Lena.

A gorgeous book, well written and another amazing success for Lauren Oliver. I was unsure if I would read the final book in this series, but now that doubt has completely fled. I eagerly await the thrilling conclusion to this trilogy, and know that Lauren Oliver has an amazing career ahead of her as one of the most promising YA authors to date.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Theory about this book/ series 7 mars 2012
Par A. Copulos - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
I have a theory. You see, I just finished Pandemonium ten minutes ago and couldn't stop thinking about it. I NEEDED to get my thoughts down on paper. This doesn't happen very often with book reviews. My theory is this: the Delirium trilogy is similar to a puzzle. In the first book, Lena is docile, weak, and meek. In this book, Lena is the exact opposite- hard, cold, and most of all ... angry. You can see this in the covers to the books- in the first, the colors are blue. The model is wide eyed and innocent looking. On the cover for Pandemonium- the model is fierce, picking the reader apart with her angry glare. The colors are orange, red, and the plants give the model a wild look to her.

Some may find this off-putting. Lena's personality seems to have made a complete 180 degree turn. But if you look at the big picture (and if my theory is correct), you can't look at one book without the other. This trilogy seems to be Lena's path to becoming a complete person. A person who has a balance of strong with weak, passion with common sense, and calmness with ferocity. A complete person. Delirium and Pandemonium are those complete opposites- and I really believe book three will be the book that ties them together.

As for the book itself, Lauren Oliver did a fantastic job! At first, I was bothered with how different Lena seemed since the last book (understandably so, but still?). About halfway through the book, I realized- Lena still doesn't have it figured out yet. She will, but she is still struggling to find a balance between the "wild" and the "order" in herself.

Yes, there is a second love interest, and yes he is important, but I don't really think that that is what Pandemonium is really about. Pandemonium is more about Lena's journey and how far into "wild" she is willing to go.

I hope you will all read this book when it comes out- and when you do get a chance to read it, hop back here and let me know if you agree with me. I, personally, can't wait for the third book. I applaud the author for her complex story lines and most of all- for making me think about what makes up a "good" person.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Good bones, bad execution 7 mars 2012
Par Shawn F. McCoy - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat authentifié par Amazon
SPOILERS AHEAD!!!!

Like so many other reviewers, Delirium was one of my favorite novels of 2011 and I couldn't wait for 2012 when Pandemonium would come out. Delirium spends the whole novel getting the reader invested in Lena, her transformation, and her falling in love with Alex. The end had me dying for the next book so I could see what happened to Lena and Alex.

Pandemonium opens with Lena escaping in the Wilds, leaving Alex behind, presuming him dead. She stumbles upon a group of the resistance and integrates into their society. Unlike many of the other reviewers, I like the "Then" segments. I thought that it was necessary to show the completion of Lena's transformation from "Zombie" to the hard, practical, strong member of the resistance she becomes. It is also the only time we really see her grieve for Alex.

The "Now" segments follow Lena as she is sent on a mission to follow the prodigal son, Julian, of the Pro-Cure leader. This irked me because there is obviously something going on but Lena doesn't question it or push the matter. I found the fact that her resistance "mentors," Raven and Tack, are a part of a scheme that paid Scavengers to abduct Lena and Julian is ludicrous. I find it hard to believe that they would employ the aid of a faction that is so reviled and hated by the resistance. Plus, Raven and Tack left a great deal up to chance. I found it unbelievable that Lena was able to A) make her way to Julian through the crowds, B) keep track of him once she had found him, C) find him once he had been abducted, and D) manage to make it to him without becoming a casualty herself. I thought it was unnecessary that Raven and Tack kept her in the dark when she could have performed her task so much better with more knowledge. They didn't even have to reveal everything. It could have been "We heard a rumor that Julian would be abducted by the Scavengers at the rally - keep an eye on him" and we could have still had the OMG moment later on when we discover that the resistance paid the Scavengers. And it was irritating that Lena spent so much of the novel passive, helpless, dirty, and/or passed out. We were treated to a few scenes, but I wanted to see more of the fighter she had become!

It was entirely predictable that Lena would fall for Julian. "Oh my God, we're stuck in a room together and I hate you and everything you stand for but your whining and naivete are so attractive that I can't help myself." I didn't connect with Julian at all. I hated that I constantly felt sorry for him because of his father, his brother, his cancer, etc. As a reader, I don't want to pity the male love interest in a novel. I especially didn't connect with his and Lena's "love." She flipped from one extreme to the other so quickly and he just seemed like a horny teenage boy who got to touch a girl for the first time. (BTW, his peeping while she took a shower didn't seem sexy to me, it was creepy.) Everything between them felt forced and contrived. Maybe it was because I was so invested in Lena and Alex's relationship that this book just didn't do it for me.

Now, I don't know about you, but from watching a lot of TV and reading a lot, I KNOW that when a character "dies" - unless you see the person die and then witness them being buried or burned - you can pretty much guarantee that there's a good chance you'll be seeing them again. That for me was predictable and I was not at all surprised when Alex showed up on the last page, interrupting a lovey-dovey moment between Julian and Lena. I am so tired of the teenage love-triangle in YA novels. Just because it worked in Hunger Games doesn't mean it's the best plot direction for this series. While I loved Delirium, and this series had the potential to become the next HG for me, this second book ruined it by forcing a triangle. I feel like this book would have been better without the love-triangle set up.

However, with all that said, I *will* be reading the third book to find out what happens with Lena and Alex and to see if, hopefully, it can redeem the disappointment of this book. :(

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Man, what a set-up 30 mai 2012
Par R. Diaz - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
As a previous reviewer said, the ending of this novel brought the rating down to a one in my eyes. Overall the book is well written, fast paced and interesting but there were things that seriously ruined the whole thing for me...things that made me consider just putting the book down and never picking it back up.

There are things that are hard to swallow that carry over from the first book, such as Lena just assuming that Alex is killed. I don't know about you, but I wouldn't just go "Oh man, he will probably get killed. Oh well, I guess he is dead now. Dead, dead, dead. Time to move on." It would be easier to assume if the author hadn't already brought Lena's mom back from the dead (and what was the point of this, again? Her mother's revival serves no purpose to move the plot forward). And the fact that she falls in love so quickly after losing the love of her life makes it an uncomfortable read.

Though i'd say the romance in this book is set up a little better than the first book (Romeo and Juliet style). Still, the author fails to realize she is asking WAY too much of the reader to care about another one of Lena's 'loves' after watching her first love being ripped from her mere months before...and then proceed to set up the same scenario of us to re-live. I nearly didn't finish this book.

I only read it because I bought it at the same time as Delirium. And while I enjoyed reading this more than I enjoyed Delirium (the pacing and action is far better in this book), the ending left me with no desire to buy the last book.

There is so much potential for this world, I just wish the author didn't hinge the whole series off the idea of a love triangle and random people coming back from the dead. It really frustrates me, considering the potential Lena has as a character and how interesting the world is. I get the appeal of a love triangle...it works in many novels. But in this series it feels forced: it's shoved down our throats like the only possible plot device available in this world.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Oh well 29 mai 2012
Par Onmykindle - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat authentifié par Amazon
This was going to be a three star review - mostly because the constant jump from the "now" chapters to the "then" ones. The only effect that served was to pull me out of the story. Even with that, it was a good book. Not great, not spectacular. It was good. Lena's journey with the other Invalids and the hardships they endured (especially Blue's death) touched me, I seriously hate Raven on a lot of levels, and I want to know more about Lena's mom. TBH, at this point, the mystery about her mother is what will probably have me buying the third book.

It took me a while to start this one after it was released. The end of Delirium, and Alex's death, wrecked me for a few days. I couldn't believe after everything....that he'd died. When I did start the book, I kept hoping that I'd read it wrong, or Lena had misinterpreted, etc. But no. Hammered home again and again that Alex was dead.

Then she got trapped with Julian. And she started making comparisons in her head, and once she said that she was "more comfortable with Julian than Alex" and the pit of dread formed in my stomach. I knew then that the author was going to get Lena in love and happy with Julian and bring Alex back. I knew it so much that when he finally turns up, all I did was groan.

So the book's rating went down a star for the blatant emotional manipulation - both for us and for Lena. Was she supposed to pine forever because maybe he was alive? She mourned, and she moved on....something every psychiatrist in the world would tell you is normal and healthy. And what happens? Surprise! I'm alive! Now I get to mess up your life because you weren't psychic.

Meh. Maybe I'm just over the whole triangle and Team X or Team Y thing.
