    My Review:

    þNew characters
    þA deeper look at The Wilds 
    þLove
    þCliffhanger ending

       Like Delirium, this books begins very slowly.  The end of the first book Lena has just gotten to The Wilds.  Each chapter in this book rotates between (then) when Lena is first arrives at The Wilds and (now) when Lena is living in New York City.  At first I really didn't like this structure.  I found it confusing and annoying.  However, once I got used to it I saw how it was kind of necessary.  Lauren Oliver was able to give us two books in one basically.  She was able to tell us the necessary story of how Lena's beginning time in The Wilds made her learn how to survive, even if that meant becoming cold and fierce.  We need to see this part of her journey to understand why she says and does certain things in the (now) chapters of the book.  I think if it was just a book of when Lena first gets to The Wilds it would have been very boring.  I found myself on the edge of my seat mostly during the New York scenes.  Read the rest of my review here
