“This second book in the Delirium Trilogy follows Lena into the Wilds where the uncured live. She joins a group of Invalids and they struggle to survive hunger, cold, and an early migration south in the winter; early because the government finds their homestead and drops bombs.
After surviving the trek south they join the resistance and Lena has to get close to the son of one of the government leaders, but how close is too close? They both are kidnapped and escape, but the son is captured after the resistance (along with a special someone) saves them both. Lena runs away to save him from certain death.
The book ends when abruptly with shocking surprise, leaving you wanting to grab Requiem, the final book in the trilogy, and immediately start reading.”
started slow and somewhat predictable but still entertaining.”

“This book may have been better than the first. I loved the action and how it flipped between now and then. I like the character of Julian and while I suspected something like the ending, it still caught me by surprise. I am ready to read the 3rd book.”Aimtrain wrote this review Tuesday, October 1, 2013.

“This book is an amazing sequel! I was so afraid that Lauren Oliver would mess this book up, thinking of how she ended number one. Yet, this book was fantastic! I really can't wait to read the next book in this series. I recommend this book to people who like science fiction and fantasy. Also to people who enjoy dystopian worlds and romance.”Melanie J. wrote this review Monday, September 30, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No

“So happy I picked up this trilogy again! Delirium was pretty good, but this book just added a whole new layer to what seemed like a simple dystopian novel. Nothing is what Lena thought it would be, and this book deals with her coping with situations that she would have never thought she could. (And really, that the reader probably didn't think she could deal with either.)
Lena finds an inner strength that is put to the test multiple times, and she always seems to come out ahead... or does she? Is it what she would have wanted? Does she see the strength she is gathering from these trials?
This is a story that works on so many levels, about life trials that apply to our own world.
