The third and final book in Lauren Oliver’s powerful New York Times bestselling trilogy about forbidden love, revolution, and the power to choose.
Now an active member of the resistance, Lena has transformed. The nascent rebellion has ignited into an all-out revolution, 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 infiltrate the borderlands to stamp out the rebels.
As Lena navigates the increasingly dangerous terrain of the Wilds, her best friend, Hana, lives a safe, loveless life in Portland as the fiancée of the young mayor. They live side by side in a world that divides them until, at last, their stories converge.
I read this series as a teen and wanted to revisit it. After finishing the last book, let me say what a disappointment! How are you going to amp up this huge battle and not even finish it! Why don’t we see what happens with the love triangle, why don’t we get a picture of what life is like after the wall comes down? So many unanswered questions, it’s like she got bored and was like you know what let me just end it right here lol.
I’m 14 and every other review is older than half my age on here, but from an modern point of view, I think delirium was the best book. I was told to get a book for the dystopian unit we were going through and chose delirium immediately because of the description. But after that it just went downhill. Pandemonium was an opening for something, there were so many ways to finish the book but making a love triangle it felt so forced. I was extremely disappointed. And then requiem, I wouldn’t care how it ended if it had an ending . The ending was just her tearing down a wall like I felt like we could’ve gotten more. But I’ll give three stars since Alex and Lena are somewhat together. Too many holes; who did Lena pick,raven and tack,what happens next. This could’ve been the ultimate series this book could’ve been something extraordinary but it was nothing but a disappointment, an eternity of waiting for something good to happen and as soon as it happens the book ends. Lauren Oliver is an amazing author but this was an extreme let down of a book.
This trilogy was completely amazing and Oliver’s way of writing transformed me into the life of Lena, Hana, Alex and Julian. The ending of this book left me confused but also satisfied. I definitely wanted to know who Lena would pick, though I’m leaning towards Alex at the moment. The ending was a good conclusion and had a good moral, similar to the end of divergent. Lauren Oliver did it yet again!
