Yes, ladies and gentlemen, you read that right. This book IS the last one – the conclusion to the Delirium series. Now, please excuse me a second while I go retrieve my the book I threw across the room. Oh, right, the review.
Requiem (Delirium 3)
By: Lauren Oliver
Release Date: March 5, 2013
Rating: 4 stars
|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.
Wait!!! Is it over?!? Was this the last book in the series?!?
Review, short and sweet:
1) The story didn’t go anywhere (why I didn’t give it 5 stars), but the writing was still great, and the story was still intense (why I didn’t give it 2 or 3 stars).
rectangle just about KILLED me. triangle
3) I know Hana’s POV was important, but I found that it was more of the annoying commercial break.
Please tell me there’s more to come.
I can’t figure out if this is the last book. While it does make for a powerful ending, it does NOTHING to resolve the situation.
