      That was awful. Completely awful. Holy hell. What happened?Summary of Requiem: Lena leads Julian on to make Alex jealous. That's it. That's the whole book.Lena what happened to you? You were bland in Delirium, had this AMAZING character growth in Pandemonium, and here? You were petty and whiny and annoying. Criminy. She asked to leave behind a burned, injured, defenseless girl who had just lost her home and family all because she was jealous that Alex talked to her. Way to be a shitty person, Le [...]

      Warning: There might be MINOR spoilers so yea, be warned :)AFTER READING:When Alex and Lena were doing thisI looked like thisd then thisI CAN'T FREAKING CONTAIN MY STUPID TANGLED EMOTIONS!!!okay I'm calm. Ilm.Julian-Lena-Alex:Although Julian somewhat grew on me in Requiem, my heart still belongs to Alex. Frankly, Alex din't do a lot in this book. He is not as active as Julian who, though struggling, managed to adapt well in the Wilds. His natural leadership skills are amazing and he is really de [...]

      ~EDIT #3~ ACTUAL REVIEW (SPOILERS AHEAD):Okay, I know a lot of people have read/liked my 'review' for the ending of Pandemonium and the blurb of requiem, but here's my long-awaited review of Lauren Oliver's Requiem.I'm going to be very, very honest here. I didn't like it. Compared to the awesomeness that was Delirium, this was honestly disappointing. I hate when authors sway to far from the original plot of the series, which was exactly what Lauren Oliver has done in this latest installment. The [...]

      Due to unfortunate circumstances, I have dropped the rating on this book from 5 stars to a mere 2. I’m sorry. I just pulled the rug out from under your feet, didn’t I? Now there are many wonderful, amazing things about this book that I could talk about, however…you probably wouldn’t be reading this if you were in it for the good stuff. You would be reading the book instead. So I’m going to skip all of the fluffy, do-good particles that this book is made of, and delve deeper into the re [...]

      We better not die in 2012!!!

      I actually really want Lena to end up with Alex. They had such chemistry. Julian would have been an okay replacement if Alex really _was_ dead, but since Alex is ALIVEEEEEE I'm hoping Lena gets on her knees and begs him to take her back. But oh my gosh, the ending of Pandemonium was awkward. I felt so bad for Alex I mean, it's kind of like, "I freaking sacrificed my life for you, and you go and hook up with the first guy you're alone with? Tsk tsk." Ohhhh this is definitely going to be awkward.A [...]

      Requiem. When all good things must come to an end. A horrible, horrible end that didn’t do any justice to the series. But an end nonetheless. Requiem is like sitting down to a well-deserved, hot pie and relishing every bite until you get to the last one and die of poisoning without ever knowing why or how. There was literally a moment when I got to the last few pages, realized there wasn’t any more and freaked out. From enjoyment for insurmountable anger.I am a solid believer that Lauren Oli [...]

    • Stacia (the 2010 club) says:

      For as much as I bitched about Mockingjay's epilogue, I kind of think that this book could have used one.This will be the review of can't really say jack.After all, how do I even talk about this book without spoilers? Warning : there are spoilers for book 2 in the comments section, so don't go there unless you've at least read up through book 2.I can probably at least say that fans of the trilogy will want to read Requiem so they can finish out the story.I just expected more than this and truly [...]

      5 Predictions:1) Tack is possibly Julians brother. Julian stated that everyone was afraid of his brother and same thing with Tack. Julians brothers favorite book was Great Expectations and so is Tacks.2) Alex was cured3) Julian dies4) Raven or Lena's mother dies5) Lena goes back to Portland After reading it. I missed the romance and passion. It lacked feelings besides for conversations between Lena and her mother. The first two are by far on another level compared to this book, at least emotiona [...]

      I have never hated a cliff hanger so much in my lifeEX. ALEX. ALEX. ALEX. GAHHHH. ALEX. I'M FREAKING OUT SO BAD RIGHT NOW. I THINK I FORGOT HOW TO BREATHE. I CAN'T WAIT UNTIL MAAAAAARCH.Blah. Lena better choose Alex or I will personally find a way into the book and murder her.I mean, yeah sure, Julian's okay, I guess, if you like THAT kind of guy. But Alex. DHAFDOSIUFJEASFDJHIE. HE ALMOST DIED FOR HER!!! And no. He was so not cured. HE WAS NOT CURED. Yeah, I would look all stony and shit if the [...]

      I don't know, I don't know what to do with my life right now, all I know is that right now I can't rate/review this book. I just can't.Two days after:Okay, okay I'm cool. I'm cool. I think I can do this. And as painful as it is, I'm gonna give this book 2.5 stars.Well, this book was a major disappointment, it got nothing solved! I kinda wish this book was a joke and that this was like Part 1 of 2 of the final book as the movies are made now. You know when you wait for like a big ending getting e [...]

      After Reading:I must say, this is probably my least favorite out of the three books.It's not horrible (Obviously, since I gave it five stars) but it took forever for the pace to pick up, for it to get interesting.This book is mostly about the Resistance fighting back (HOORAH!!) but they can't just barge in and fight! They must plan first! Making most of the novel planing, not fighting.And we all now that planing is that as fun as fightingOf course it's not all planning!Since, very much like the [...]

    • Courtney says:

      A year?!?! Really?!?! After how the last book ended they really expect me to wait a year to find out what happens! I think I might die :(3/5/13Ok. Wait WTF?! That wasn't the end was it? That was probably the stupidest ending of a book ever! It was more like the start to a spin-off series or a lame ass cliff hanger for book 4. I'm so so so disappointed in Lauren Oliver. This is one of my favorite series and she just ruined it! Nothing, absolutely nothing was resolved. Love triangle? Still going s [...]

    • Saania Zee Jamal ϟ says:

      I'm sorry Lauren, but that piss-poor ending can't deserve any more than 2 and a half stars from me. It was good while it lasted.*sigh shrug**shrug sigh**shrigh*

    • kari says:

      Don’t you just love it when you get to the end of a series, close that back cover, sigh contentedly, think of stars and sunshine, regret that you no longer get to spend time in that world with those characters, but feel enclosed in a shining bubble of contentment and happiness for that wonderful ending, hugging the book with joy? Well, if that is what you’re hoping for with this book, you are in for one whopping disappointment, my friend.Nothing and I mean a sum total of not a single thing, [...]

    • Jamie says:

      ********Warning, spoilers for Pandemonium in passage below*********I'm gonna be blunt and put it out there. I don't like Julian. Sure, he's nice and all that, but he's not Alex. Julian is sheltered and too much of an important figure to be involved in Lena's romantic affairs. He's inexperienced, knows nothing on how to survive in The Wild. While Alex helped Lena, Julian is the one that needs the taking care of. He's much weaker than Alex. My heart literally skipped like 5 beats when I read the e [...]

    • tonya. says:

      2.5 stars.I'm not sure I know what to say about this one. While I was only mildly impressed with Delirium, and found Lena to be a weak and indecisive character, I was incredibly impressed with her development in Pandemonium. Lena grew into a strong, determined character, with a cause far greater than somewhat ordinary teenage love. In Requiem all the momentum built in Pandemonium was halted. Despite the all out war brewing between the Regulators and the Invalids, the main focus of the story was [...]

    • Skylar says:

      When I finished Pandemonium . . . OMFG I HATE LOVE TRIANGLES, someone please tell me why they exist!!! D:< In the end when Alex came back I was just likeNOOO I like Julian with Lena . . . I feel like the only one though : ( I never really liked Alex that much, I don't really know why :p. I like Julian though. & then when I really thought he died I was like Lena is finally happy again! But then Alex came back xO. She finally moves on - and she's happy!!!- and then BAM he's back NOOOOO. Now [...]

    • Nicole says:

      Well, I really want this book. Really badly. Really badly. Really badly. I don't even know how to express how much I want this book.I want to know what happens.And as morbid as this is, I kind of hope Julian dies, so that Lena's choice is so much easier.Um. Yeah.Just, um, forget about that last part.UPDATE: What's up with the old ladies up there? They aren't fierce or anything. Why'd I put them there??? NOW GIMME THIS BOOK ALREADY. I'VE WAITED LIKE A YEAR. JUST COME ONGRRR GIMMEEE IT'S ALREADY W [...]

    • Jayde says:

      Okay I just finished reading pandemonium literally two seconds ago ANDI really really REALLY want her to end up with Julian!!I dont like Alex(sorry)With Alex she didnt have to fight it she just got swept up in the throes of a whirlwind romance.With Julian, she fought it, she denied it and she STILL started to fall for him.She went back for JULIAN! she didnt go back for Alex (speaks volumes me thinks)When I was reading the Lena/Julian moments I got a warm fuzzy happy feeling in my chest that [...]

    • Ferdy says:

      SpoilersI was going to give this one star because the ending was ridiculous, actually the whole book was ridiculous… But because I'm really nice, I decided to add an extra star. Your welcome, Lauren Oliver.For those who haven't read Requiem. Here's a breakdown:Lena: Alex no dead. What I do? It be painful. Alex: I no dead Lena. You be evul whore. Why you no grieve forever when you be thinking I being dead? I never loving you! I always hating you now!Julian: Huh?Lena: Alex no wuv me. Me so sad. [...]

    • hayden says:

      For as much shit as the end of this book got from everyone, I thought it was pretty perfect. I didn't think it was unfair at all. Open, yes, but some easy inferences tell you everything you need to know.I got just what I wanted from my favorite characters, and I won't lie: I was pretty excited about Lena's choice in the end.Oliver's beautiful, beautiful writing never hurts, either. Lauren Oliver says, in a tweet to me:"I won't say a word! V proud of that book, though. I made some unconventional [...]

    • Beatriz says:

      Abordé el último libro de esta trilogía con bastante recelo, principalmente porque había leído muchos comentarios desfavorables respecto del desenlace, y después de la frustración que me causó Leal de Veronica Roth, esperaba cualquier cosa. Pero como recién había acabado Pandemonium, aproveché el impulso.La verdad, a mí me ha encantado, tanto que lo encuentro el mejor de los tres. A diferencia de los dos primeros, que leí en forma bastante pausada, éste no lo podía soltar. Concuer [...]

    • Marina says:

      3.5 starsWellI'm going to start pleading my case here.First of all, I have to admit that I find this a genuinely authentic theme for a dystopian trilogy. Some readers may consider it obscenely absurd. Idiotic. Daft. Pick one.Not me.It's actually very clever.Can you honestly guarantee that with the rate things are going, something like this would be impossible to occur?I mean, hear this humanity.If dividing mankind into pre-determined factions to avoid social inconsistencies and emotional fallout [...]

    • Christine Riccio says:

      Just posted my booktalk with detailed discussion: youtu/Kgpz7kS2HpA ! Love this world, loved where it was going, but I don't feel any closure, which has left me feeling less enthused with the series as a whole.

    • Emily says:

      I read the end of Pandemonium and there was a moment when I seriously thought I was dead. (some spoilers, okay). As soon as they said an escapee from the Crypts I was like "ALEX! ALEX ALEX ALEX!" And when he showed up, I was like "OH MY SWEET LORD! YOU HAVE SAVED US" and then I was like JulianI am so confused by my emotions right now. Why? Why do this to us Lauren? Do you enjoy watching us suffer another YEAR while we wait for the next one. I feel like I might die.Can't one of them die to make i [...]

    • Sandeep ☾ says:

      3.5/5 StarsUM WHAT KIND OF ENDING WAS THAT?! IT WASN'T ENOUGH, YOU CAN'T DO US DIRTY LIKE THAT!!!!!!This trilogy would have definitely been one of my favorites if it hadn't been for that terrible ending. Yes, I'm going to bitter about this for a very long time.

    • Allison Mcswain says:

      SO DISAPPOINTED I love Lauren Oliver's writing, but I feel that Pandemonium deserved to be followed with something better--something less rushed.It's the curse of the third and final book. I hated Mockingjay because it was so rushed (like, oh, it's the final book, let's get it over with). I thought Lauren wouldn't let that happenbut I feel it did. Requiem was rushed and left me unsatisfied. This series WAS my favoritebut this ruined it. Still love the first two books.
