The story:

As her country erupts in open rebellion, Lena fights for the resistance and must make a heartbreaking choice between two loves.

After saving Julian from a death sentence, Lena escapes with him and other members of the resistance. But as she embraces her love for Julian, a boy from her past returns and causes her to question everything. 

In the meantime, Lena’s best friend, Hana, is engaged to Portland’s young mayor and is living a safe, proscribed, loveless life. The story is told from both Lena and Hana’s points of view.

As Lena struggles to save the people she loves, everything comes to a head in this exciting finale to Lauren Oliver’s epic trilogy. REQUIEM is a sophisticated, wide-ranging novel that explores the large issues of society, government, and resistance, and of course, there is romance

The view of a book addict:

This is the last book in the Delirium trilogy, after reading the first two books I just had to know how this was going to end.  Let me start by telling you that I really like the writing style of this series. It are easy to read books and it moves along in a good pace.

But I have to say that there were some moments in this book that I found boring, at some point I found Hana’s story more intriguing that Lena’s story. The two storylines in this book made the book fun to read, you get to know more about what happened to Lena and Alex and you learn more about Hana’s own life after her cure.

I believe that this was a good ending tot his series, although it still leaves me with some questions. The ending was a little abrupt but if you look into the other books of this series they all have an abrupt ending.

The verdict of a book addict:

A good ending to a good series, I wonder why it took me this long to pick this series up.
