Book Review: Requiem by Lauren Oliver (Delirium # 3)

Book Review: Requiem by Lauren Oliver (Delirium # 3) - Reviewed by Kidzworld on May 11, 2013
( Rating: 4 Star Rating)

In Requiem, book 3 in the bestselling Delirium trilogy by Lauren Oliver, the final showdown between the Invalids and the Cureds ensues. Who will triumph? Kidzworld has the book review.

The Invalids

Now that Alex has returned alive and well, Lena's heart is torn in two. She knows that she will never love Julian as much as she loves Alex. But now, even though Alex has joined forces with their group of Invalids, he wants nothing to do with Lena. Instead, his steady companion is Coral, a beautiful girl who they found unconscious in the woods. While the love triangle drama between Alex, Julian and Lena reaches an all time high, another loved one from Lena's past returns. The Invalids are planning an invasion, hoping to breach the wall surrounding Portland and take back their homes. Unfortunately, they have no idea how strong the Cureds are.

The Cureds

Inside the wall, Lena's old best friend Hana feels guilty for reporting Lena and Alex's relationship, and ultimately forcing Lena into the Wilds. But now her bad karma is earning her a tough lot in life as the wife of Fred, the new mayor. Fred seemed nice enough at first. But as their wedding day draws near, his dark side begins to surface. Hana wonders what happened to Cassie, Fred's previous wife of five years, and why she suddenly disappeared off the map. Meanwhile, Hana has noticed that her Cure isn't working the way it should. She's still having dreams and experiencing emotions - two things that the Cure is supposed to eliminate. Now that the Invalids are invading, which side will Hana support?

The Bottom Line

Requiem is the final book in Lauren Oliver's Delirium trilogy, a bestselling teen dystopian series. This book explores a new format: an alternating narrative between Lena in the Wilds and Hana in Portland. It's an exciting final installment in this beloved trilogy. While we recommend this book, we suggest you read the first two books in the series first: Delirium and Pandemonium.

Requiem Rating: 4

Ahh, I love this so much! ♥♥  It's so kind of you to want to send a nice message to people, even the ones you don't know. Everyone needs to know that they matter. If you weren't supposed to exist, you wouldn't. You're a fantastic person, OP. ♡

here is my inspirational message I guess haha- You are all incredibly beautiful and needed on this planet.  Always remember that.  Look in the mirror and smile at yourself.  Who wouldn't miss that gorgeous smile?  I know this may sound fake, but this message needs to be heard.  Now sit down and think of what life could be.  Imagine never waking up one more time to see one more sunset, to not laugh at something again, to never see a face that you know cares for you.  Now, what makes you special?  Nothing else could replace that part of you.  Literally nothing.  You have a completely different genetic makeup than anyone, not that this post is abut science or anything.  So don't think you'd be better off dead.  Because trust me, you'd be destroying everyone around you worlds, and your own.  There is someone that cares about you.  Always.  ​Hope you enjoyed my cheesy message  and I hoped it helped.  I just wanted to be positive.  That's who I am.
