ready for a movie!

I read the delirium series and liked them. I like the ending of Requiem, and during the whole series I felt like I was there. It is pretty well written despite a few grammar and punctuation errors. If a movie comes out I would totally go see it! Well done

wow

I finished this book in less than 24 hours, it is amazing. I really need Lauren Oliver to write an epilogue for me about what happens to the characters like Alex, Tack, Hana and Julian( not that I care about him, I hate him). I pray that Lauren Oliver will read this and write an epilogue about Lena and Alex's love story or what happens to grace or what happens to Hana. Please Lauren Oliver. #TeamAlex

Amazing ending!

I really liked this book. I think it was a great ending to the trilogy, but I wish lauren Oliver would have done more point of views than just Lena and Hanas. Other than that it was an amazing book!!

Underwhelming

I have to say that the final installment of this trilogy was also underwhelming for me.

I like the world that Oliver creates. I like that this novel gives us both Lena's and Hana's perspectives. But in the end, I think that seeing the world only from the viewpoints of two 18 year olds is really, really limited. They are people who are acted-upon, rather than major actors, even if they are caught up on the edges of major dramas and making the choices available to them. And yes, I get it that this is a Teen book, and so it really might just be that (once again) I am simply the wrong audience. A teen might recognize themselves and their own position in life quite directly, and therefore relate closely and love the book better. I'm happy to allow that.

But I think the book would have been better served by having a few more viewpoints that included both the young/relatively powerless AND the older/ highly powerful. I would love to have seen this world and the changes that were occurring from their vantage point (more directly) as well.

I think Lara Zielin's books, and the power of her teen characters (who make choices and deal with the consequences), remain my standard for what a Teen book can rise to.
