Series: Delirium Trilogy (Book 3)
Author: Lauren Oliver
Genre: Dystopia, Young Adult
Summary: “They have tried to squeeze us out, to stamp us into the past.
But we are still here.
And there are more of us every day.
Now 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.
Maybe we are driven crazy by our feelings.
Maybe love is a disease, and we would be better off without it.
But we have chosen a different road.
And in the end, that is the point of escaping the cure: We are free to choose.
We are even free to choose the wrong thing.
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.” ~from Goodreads.com
Ugh this series. After the cliffhanger ending of Pandemonium I had to start Requiem immediately because there was no way I was letting any time go by without finding out what happened next. I just swallowed this book up.
It’s told from both Lena and Hana’s POV which was nice because I got to see more of Hana, who I really liked in the first book. I really liked how their stories intersected.
This book was just so well done overall, and it the last third of it was so intense. I just couldn’t put it down. The ending is great and leaves it on a note of hope, which I think is perfect for the story.
Overall, the trilogy is just wonderfully written and is just so well-done. Definitely one of my favorite series now.
My rating: ★★★★★
