RECENZIE: PANDEMONIUM DE LAUREN OLIVER

Pandemonium_frontREZUMAT:

Lena joins the resistance effort against the oppressive government and fights for freedom.
After escaping from Portland, Lena makes it to the Wilds and becomes part of an Invalid community. Weak and grieving for Alex, Lena fights to survive. And then she fights her oppressors.
As the viewpoint shifts between Lena’s time in the Wilds and the present day, which is set in Brooklyn, Lena transforms into a warrior for the resistance. In New York City, the grass-roots movement for a Deliria-Free America (the DFA) is gathering strength, and its leader, Thomas Fineman, recruits more supporters by the day. His son Julian–as-yet uncured–heads up the DFA’s youth organization. Lena is tasked with blending into the DFA’s rallies; she seems to be a supporter yet she is really a spy.

OPINIE PERSONALA:

Am inceput cartea asta cand eram in plina sesiune de examene, si acum ca am terminat cu examenele am terminat si cartea. Multi spun ca aceasta carte e mai buna decat prima, eu sincer nu cred asta, mi se pare mai buna prima. Lena mi se pare atat de schimbata, in prima carte e timida, fata aproape perfecta, acum e luptatoare, puternica, vechea Lena a murit, iar din cenusa ei sa nascut aceasta Lena. Povestea este povestita la doua timpuri. Atunci si acum, Atunci, trecutul, cand Lena a ajuns pe Pamantul Salbatic, iar acum, cateva luni mai tarziu, integrata in societate, adoptand o identitate falsa. Sincer, mi-a placut mai mult partea prezenta decat cea trecuta, nu stiu de ce. Iar alt lucru care nu mi-l place la carte e Julian, nu il suport pe baiatul ala, probabil si pentru faptul cum ajung el si Lena sa se placa. Urasc povestile in care doua persoane sunt prinse intr-un spatiu, iar din necesitatea de a nu simti singuratatea, vorbesc, vorbesc, iar intr-un final isi dau seama ca se plac. Nu, nu suport povestile alea, puteti sa ma contraziceti, dar mie nu mi le plac, mai ales ca nu am simtit legatura aia, conexiunea aceea pe care a avut-o Lena cu Alex in primul volum… Sper sa nu ajunga sa sfarseasca impreuna pentru ca asta ar fi sinucidere sociala pentru mine x_X Cam, am o idee, despre cum ar putea decurge lucrurile dar nu va pot spune, asta ar insemna sa dezvalui prea mult, si nu vreau.

La timpul trecut (atunci) Lena este in Taramul Salbatic, singura, Alex a murit pe partea cealalta a zidului, acum nimic nu mai avea rost, dar trebuia sa continue pentru ca asta vroia el, ea este salvata de catre „invalizi” si de aici incepe lupta lui Lena pentru supravietuire. Daca in primul volum a trebuit sa invete cum sa iubeasca, aici invata cum sa fie o luptatoare, cum viata te schimba, nevoia, foamea, lipsa, toate acestea isi pun amprenta asupra ta. Iar Alex e deja parte a trecutului, nu mai e, trebuie sa invete sa traiasca in aceasta noua viata fara el.

La timpul prezent (acum) Lena traieste in Manhattan si este membra a Opozitiei. Ea primeste sarcina de a-l supraveghea pe Julian, fiul unuia dintre cei care e de vina pentru lumea in care se traieste, lumea in care dragostea e considerata o boala, iar Lena nu poate decat sa simta ura atat pentru Julian, cat si pentru tatal lui, dar cand aceasta este pusa sa-l supravegheze, iar cei doi termina prin a fi capturati si inchisi, in acea mica celula nu mai exista decat ei doi, iar Lena, incepe sa se deschida tot mai mult, iar afland adevarata poveste a lui Julian, stie ca nu e baiatul care e afisat in public, iar barierele incep sa se destrame una cate una. Dar oare vor reusi sa scape de cei care i-au capturat? Va reusi Lena sa poata fi fericita fara sa mai ingroape o fiinta draga? Va reusi sa fie impreuna cu Julian si sa-l lase pe Alex in trecut, sau acest trecut o va bantui mereu? Veti afla cititnd acest minunat volum:)

CITAT:

“It probably wasn’t the best day for a picnic,” Alex says, and  just then I realize that yes, of course, we haven’t eaten any of the food we brought. There’s a basket at the foot of the blanket, filled with half-rotten fruit, swarmed by tiny black ants.

“Why not?” I say. We are staring at the web of leaves above us, thick as a wall.

“Because it’s snowing.” Alex laughs. And again I realize he’s right: It is snowing, thick flakes the color of ash swirling all around us. It’s freezing cold, too. My breath comes in clouds, and I press against him, trying to stay warm.

“Give me your arm,” I say, but Alex doesn’t respond. I try to move into the space between his arm and his chest but his body is rigid, unyielding. “Alex,” I say. “Come on, I’m cold.”

“I’m cold,” he parrots, from lips that barely move. They are  blue, and cracked. He is staring at the leaves without blinking. 

“Look at me,” I say, but he doesn’t turn his head, doesn’t  blink, doesn’t move at all. A hysterical feeling is building inside me, a shrieking voice saying wrong, wrong, wrong, and I  sit up and place my hand on Alex’s chest, as cold as ice. “Alex,”  I say, and then, a short scream: “Alex!

Initial, am vrut sa-i dau 3.5/5 sau 4/5 dar dupa ce am citit finalul si aproape ca mi-a zburat inima din piept iar cu doar 3 cuvinte a reusit sa imbunatateasca toata cartea aceasta primesteeee:

NOTA:

Povestea continua in Requiem

9593913Now an active member of the resistance, Lena has been transformed. The nascent rebellion that was under way in Pandemonium has ignited into an all-out revolution in Requiem, and Lena is at the center of the fight.

After rescuing Julian from a death sentence, Lena and her friends fled to the Wilds. But the Wilds are no longer a safe haven—pockets of rebellion have opened throughout the country, and the government cannot deny the existence of Invalids. Regulators now infiltrate the borderlands to stamp out the rebels, and as Lena navigates the increasingly dangerous terrain, her best friend, Hana, lives a safe, loveless life in Portland as the fiancée of the young mayor. Requiem is told from both Lena’s and Hana’s points of view. The two girls live side by side in a world that divides them until, at last, their stories converge.

~*~*~*~DESCRIERE ALTERNATIVA~*~*~*~

16853922The final instalment in the internationally bestselling Delirium trilogy.

It is the rule of the WildYou must be bigger, and stronger, and tougher.

A coldness radiates through me, a solid wall that is growing, piece by piece, in my chest. He doesn’t love me.

He never loved me.

It was all a lie.

The old Lena is dead’, I say, and then push past him. Each step is more difficult than the last; the heaviness fills me and turns my limbs to stone.

You must hurt, or be hurt.

Lena can build the walls, but what if there’s no one left to take them down? The powerful, heartbreaking conclusion to one of the most eagerly awaited, talked-about series is here.
