I actually started this book a couple weeks ago and had maybe read 30 pages. I resumed yesterday and finished it. Although the premise of live being a disease intrigued me I was a little wary going in given how prevalent the controlled society dystopian novels are right now. However, I was pleasantly rewarded with a really good story.
I thoroughly enjoyed the characters; they felt real to me. Despite it being slightly predictable (it would've rung untrue if Lena hadn't started to question things and eventually attempt to break free) there were plenty of other surprises to keep it feeling fresh and unlike others its been paired alongside.
I am looking forward to reading what happens in Lena's life. I'm hoping Pandemonium lives up.
