STOP. This page is a SPOILER PAGE for the book Requiem by Lauren Oliver. Do not proceed if you have not read this book.
So Requiem….. the final book in the Delirium trilogy. SO…. I actually found a lot that I liked about the book. Even if the love triangle has been done to death… I think there is still some excitement to it…. that sense of who will be picked, who will be tossed aside….
AND I have to admit, through much discussion in my spoiler page for Pandemonium, where I proudly proclaimed I was Team Julian and you all ripped my head off…. :D….
Throughout this whole book I was team Alex.
Oh come on! How could you not be????? Alex – although somewhat of an ass in the beginning you knew (oh YOU KNEW!) that he was just covering hurt feelings for Lena moving on….
My other little complaint was that Lena was not as likable in this book… she annoyed me with her talks with Alex and then running to Julian’s arms. BLAH. Too girly for me… too D-R-A-M-A.
Love love love that Hana is back in this book and love love love hearing her side of what is happening back in Portland and how the “others” are handling what is happening with the Wilds and the Invalids.
And then I know people are mad about all the unsaid things all the openness in the end which actually for some reason did not bug me so much. Maybe in this book I didn’t need to know everything and how it panned out… maybe I was just happy that the one thing happened that I wanted to happen… Lena and Alex found their way back to one another. (It was my Titanic moment where Rose gets out of the life boat and hurried her way back to Jack and as they cry and hold one another….) Oh. Sorry about that. I am back. 😛
SO over to you…. I know I have more to discuss just cant think of it now so please, share your thoughts openly on this book. As this is the final book you can share openly here about all three books and how it all ends. I am excited to read what you think!
