Jennifer I am going to die waiting for this. The ending was soooo sad!


message 2: by Jennifer (new)

Jennifer Oh no I had a feeling she might fall for someone else in the invalid community but please tell me then she realizes Alex is still alive somewhere!


message 3: by Eloise (new)

Eloise i hope she does realize!! i will cry if it doesn't work out between her and alex!!


Rebecca ♥ Matrim, Kishan, Magnus ♥ Are you saying that cuz it was an ambiguous ending and we dont know if he is alive, or cuz he is but she just doesnt know it yet? Cuz I am an avid hater of sad endings. I wont read it if it doesnt work out. Maybe I should wait till this comes out so someone can tell me, before reading Delirium.

I feel you. It is ambiguous. We don't know for sure. But some people that have read Pandemonium have hinted that she does meet some Julian guy that gives Alex a run for his money so I'm pretty sure Alex is alive I just don't know what has happened to him. But you might want to wait. I'll be reading it right when it comes out so I can let you know.

Teri LOL---there was that.....I just slammed the book shut and stared at it...


message 14: by Tabatha (new)

Tabatha I don't know if I can read this one, don't get me wrong, I really want to, but it seems like it's going to be really depressing :/


message 15: by Sunnykimmy (new)

Sunnykimmy I thought she'd find out Alex was still alive, at least near the ending!!!!!!!! But I guess I did expect she'd fall for someone else in the meantime. Julian?! Are you kidding me! I read the excerpt and I met Julian and I don't know what to think of him.

Yeah it was a bit depressing. Not quite as bad as the first book but bad stuff happens and Lena is depressed over Alex and it made me cry.

Jennifer Anyone who has read this feel free to DM me or email me somelikeitparanormal@yahoo.com so we can freak out together and go over those last three little words that were said that I can't figure out what they mean!!!


message 20: by Sunnykimmy (new)

Sunnykimmy Ugh I'm sulking because I have to wait until the end of this month to read it.

It's not too long! Plus with the cliffhanger you don't want to have to wait any longer for the last book. Once you read it come back and we will definitely discuss it!

Definitely missing out! A great series. You definitely have to read Delirium first though.

Samara Should I wait for the third book in the series, because I heard it ends in a cliffhanger sort of way?

It is a huge cliffhanger. If you can I would just wait to read them all at once.

Right! I couldn't get over it for days! LOL I still think about it and get upset all over again. Those last three words! What do they mean?!?!?!?!


message 32: by Weronika (new)

Weronika I just finished it last night and I couldn't sleep! Jeez this book's got me all kind of crazy I don't think I've ever been this obsessed before. I hate/love Lauren for making me fall in love with J and then rip my heart out like that...No idea what's going to happen, what the words mean, I know NOTHING! LOL :)


message 33: by Jubilee (last edited Mar 02, 2012 08:42AM) (new)

Jubilee *There are a lot of spoilers in this comment*

When I read the ending of this book it felt like Lauren Oliver had just ripped my heart out and stomped all over it. The worst part is when Alex says "Don't believe her." because it's like, Alex was DEAD what did he expect her to do? Never move on? Be hung up on him forever? She watched him die. I would've thought he was dead too! Not to mention all she went through with Julian. For him to say that Julian shouldn't believe that she loves him after she just risked everything to save him is naive and wrong. It just doesn't make any sense that Alex would be so negative. It's not a good thing when people die and the people that love them don't ever get over it; he shouldn't be accusing her like it's a bad thing that she moved on. I'm not saying she can't end up with Alex in the last book, but I hope that Alex comes to his senses and realizes that Lena has been through a lot since she watched him die and Julian was there to comfort her when she felt the most alone. The last thing Lena needs is a guilt trip from Alex. If he truly ever loved her he would be more understanding and he would want her to be happy. The Alex I remember from the first book would have wanted that.

Having said that, you're right about Lena not really looking for Alex. The way I see it, she truly believed Alex was dead. At the beginning of the book she asks Raven if the person she escaped with survived and Raven gives her a look that makes her believe that Raven heard that Alex is dead. I mean, she had no reason to believe Alex was still alive-- I'm still curious as to how he survived all those gunshots to the chest. Still, if I were her I would have looked for Alex's name in the prison list. But I also would've figured out that the umbrella had a knife in it like 5 minutes after I woke up in the prison cell. The entire time I was reading that part of the book I was like, omg Tack obviously didn't give you that umbrella for no reason. And even if he did, it's worth investigating since you have nothing better to do locked in that cell. It just goes to show Lena isn't very intuitive.

I'm thinking Alex probably doesn't know at this point that Lena thought he was dead. I bet he probably thinks she knew he was in the crypts and just didn't bother coming to save him like he came to save her. And a year in those crypts will have given him some series post traumatic stress syndrome.

As for Lena looking for Alex, She said she saw blood and gun shots but she ran so fast that I don't think she really got a good look. I'm not sure how injured he really got. She did ask Raven(I don't trust that B*tch at all!) But she didn't say for sure so I wish Lena pushed her into saying so DO YOU KNOW FOR SURE? OR ARE YOU ASSUMING? Later she says everyone she meets had heard about the event. That it caused a big stir and that deliveries would stopped for awhile. So she could have continued to ask the people in the wilds if they heard anything. It wouldn't have hurt to double check. Honestly my first thought at the end of Delirium was that they would throw him in the crypts so I was mad Lena wouldn't even ask about that or check the prison records.


message 35: by Suzy (new)

Suzy Oh god... I just finished it... I'm a mess... Lol... Im feeling a little crazy with this... I loved it so much don't get me wrong but... I think I need like a Prozac or something! Hahah!

haha RIGHT?! I was warned that I would want a Valium to handle that ending! I'm so happy and upset both. Not happy with the new guy. He's really going to throw a wrench into the next book.


message 37: by Lily (new)

Lily OMG the ending was so annoying! How could it just end like that?
And poor Lena. Now she has to choose.
I love them both..<3 I'm actually wondering who she'll choose.


message 38: by Annie (new)

Annie I FREAKING HATE THAT CLIFFHANGER WHICH WAS THE BIGGEST CLIFFHANGER OF ALL HUGE CLIFFHANGERS!!!! that was so cruel and now i have to wait ANOTHER year to get my hands on Requiem, which isn't actually a word..
seriously, Alex I love you!!! and it was really annoying that Lena fell in love with Julian after like not even bothering to see if Alex was dead or not. I always knew he was alive...
and if she ends up Julian, I'm gonna shoot someone.

message 47: by Elizabeth (new)

Elizabeth Great review! i'm reading this book now and the "now" and "then" part totally confused me!


message 48: by Krista (new)

Krista I'm so excited for the next book. But that ending?! Are you kidding me??! Im half happy he's alive, ok really happy, but super worked up over the fact that he just saw her kissing another guy promising him to be together!! Im worried he wont forgive her! If he only knew how much she thought of him &missed him, he'd have to understand ... RIGHT??!

I'm super worried! I just read a teaser quote from Requiem where Lena is asking why Alex cares since he hates her?!


message 50: by Krista (new)

Krista Whoa whoa whoa! Tell me where you got the teaser quote?! And tell me, who do you honestly think she'll end up with ... my bet is on Alex, it'd be more of a hurdle to get over, ya know?
