THE THREE R's
And Lena...talk about character development. She has changed from the shy girl in Delirium into a fighter. She is wilder, harsher from her exposure to the harshness of the world. This change doesn't happen overnight though. Told through flash-backs and present-day accounts, the reader is introduced to her struggles after her escape and how she arrived at her new mental state.
At first, she is physically weak and an emotional wreck. Her inability to forget Alex contributing to her degrading mental state. But, through the help of new characters (particularly Raven; slightly Julian) Lena is able to commit to her own survival and led the reader on an intense ride.
I frankly did not care for the ending. It did surprise me but I found I was expecting (dreading) it all along.
As always, just my opinion. You may let it influence you, you may not.
