Description-

  • The second book in Lauren Oliver's New York Times bestselling trilogy about forbidden love, revolution, and the power to choose.

    In this electrifying follow-up to Delirium, Lena is on a dangerous course that takes her through the unregulated Wilds and into the heart of a growing resistance movement. This riveting, brilliant novel crackles with the fire of fierce defiance, romance, and the sparks of a revolution about to ignite.

The film rights to both Replica and Lauren's bestselling first novel, Before I Fall, were acquired by Awesomeness Films. Before I Fall was adapted into a major motion picture starring Zoey Deutch.

Some of its recent titles include the New York Times bestseller Everless, by Sara Holland; the critically acclaimed Bonfire, authored by the actress Krysten Ritter; and The Hunger by Alma Katsu, which received multiple starred reviews and was praised by Stephen King as "disturbing, hard to put down" and "not recommended...after dark."

Reviews-

  • DOGO Books rainbeaux - This book was ok. Let me start of by saying that I love sequels but I find that few live up to their counterparts. Pandemonium did not. I finished this book quickly but, I thought it lacked the excitement of the first book. Lena has escaped Portland but without Alex. She finds a group of Invalids who take her in. But that was then. Now, Lena is in New York playing a role just as Alex had done. (Wait, don't think of Alex) The leader of the DFA (Deliria Free America) has a son and It's Lena's job to follow him for the resistance. But what will happen when they're both kidnapped? The book alternates between 'then' and 'now' which was kind of interesting. I found a lot of this book to drag though. I finished this book quickly but, I was bored when reading it. I guessed many of twists as they were being set up. I haven't read 'Requiem' yet but I'm hoping it's better than Pandemonium.

    Starred review from January 1, 2012
    It's been six months since readers first met 17-year-old Lena Haloway, desperately in love in a world that considers such feelings an infection to be permanently and irrevocably "cured." This much-anticipated sequel to Delirium (2011) picks up right where the first novel left off, with Lena and Alex's only partially successful attempt to escape to "the Wilds." Lena, alone, heartbroken and near death, must reach deep within herself to find the strength and the will to survive. "Step by step--and then, inch by inch," she is reborn. The story of Lena's new life as a rebel Invalid, determined to honor the memory of Alex by fighting for a world in which love is no longer considered a capital offense, is told through a series of flashbacks and present-day accounts that will leave readers breathless. The stakes only get higher when Lena realizes she has feelings for someone new. The novel's success can be attributed to its near pitch-perfect combination of action and suspense, coupled with the subtler but equally gripping evolution of Lena's character. 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. (Dystopian romance. 14 & up)

    Gr 9 Up-Following directly on the heels of Delirium (HarperCollins, 2011), Pandemonium is equally riveting. It shifts back and forth between "then," as readers discover how Lena adapts to her life in the Wilds even as she grieves for Alex, and "now" where she is infiltrating the DFA, an organization committed to offering the "cure" to all citizens regardless of their age in spite of the known risks to anyone under the age of 18. She begins to have feelings for Julian, the son of the leader of the DFA, when they are incarcerated together following a mass demonstration. They discover they have more in common than they could have imagined despite their initial mutual antipathy and distrust. Oliver's descriptions of life in the unregulated Wilds with its deprivations and dangers are powerful and vivid. The characters are fully realized and heartbreakingly human. The underlying theme that love will win out regardless of prohibition is a powerful idea that will speak to teens. Readers who gravitate toward dystopian literature with high-stakes action and flawed humans who are willing to risk all for their ideals will enjoy this novel and eagerly await the next one in the trilogy.-Jane Henriksen Baird, Anchorage Public Library, AK

  • Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

    "The gasp-worthy final page sets the stage for a promising conclusion to this trilogy."

  • Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

    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."

  • New York Journal of Books

    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."

    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."

  • Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA) (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."

  • ALA Booklist

    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."

  • Jay Asher, author of the New York Times bestseller Thirteen Reasons Why

    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!"

  • Carolyn Mackler, author of Tangled and The Earth, My Butt, and Other Big Round Things, a Printz Honor book

    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."
