I totally loved the whole trilogy and I can't wait to also read the three short stories that go along with it :)
Good Points
I Bought Requiem by Lauren Oliver off of Amazon to read and share my honest review. Requiem is the continuation of the Delirium trilogy by Lauren Oliver, it is the third and final book in the trilogy. Taking that into consideration I obviously cannot share every detail because it is the last book but I will share what I can.

I enjoyed the plot in this story because there is not just one place. Since there are two point of view’s in the book, the plot bounces back and forth between Lena’s hometown of Portland, and then the wilds. The more interesting chapters in my opinion were the ones in the wilds, and the reason I say this is because whenever you were with the invalids there was never a dull moment something was always happening. The chapters in Portland kind of annoyed me because I got bored with them so quickly but some of them did make the story.

I did not enjoy Lena’s character in the first book Delirium but since then in the second book Pandemonium and now in the last book Requiem her character has really developed into someone that I enjoyed reading about. She no longer seems weak and unable to speak her mind, which is good because watching her sit there and take orders and mope around in the first book got old quickly. We saw more of Hana (Lena’s best friend from Delirium) in this book as well, now I cannot really tell you much about her because it will ruin what you find out about her but lets just say she has changed as well since the first book, but right now I am not quite sure if she changed for the better or for the worst.

A character that we met in Pandemonium also showed up as well as we all knew he would and that is Julian whom you will know if you read the second book. I enjoyed his character very much he starts to branch out and be adventurous which I think surprised Lena as much as it did me. Lets talk about Alex for just a second (this is not a spoiler if you read Pandemonium so do not worry!) I have to say that even though I fell in love with Alex in the first book I absolutely hated his character throughout this whole book. Everybody has definitely changed in their own ways but Alex changed in awful ways!

Overall the story was great seeing people fight for what they believed in throughout this whole trilogy is very inspiring. It shows that no matter what people know the difference between right and wrong and they knew that what the society was doing to these people was very wrong. The book gets a 4 out of 5 stars and I cannot wait to pick up more of Lauren Oliver’s books!
