Requiem is the third and final book in the Delirium trilogy by Lauren Oliver, set in a dystopian world where love is considered a disease. In order to cure this disease, society has come up with a procedure that everyone must go through when they turn eighteen. After this procedure, people can't feel anything anymore. They are matched with suitable mates and live like robots. However, Lena Haloway, who was always a good little girl, takes a walk on the wild side and falls in love with Alex, an outsider. She escapes into the wilds and becomes a part of the resistance. Believing Alex to have died at the end of book one, she starts having feelings for Julian in book two. However, Alex reappears on the scene and it is up to Requiem to tell us who Lena finally ends up with.

Requiem also tells the story of Lena's best friend, Hana, who had the operation and is living within society as a member of the upper classes while Lena continues to be a part of the resistance in the wilds. In Requiem, the resistance gains more power and the government can't ignore it anymore. People are fed up with a society that forces them to give up their emotions and they're rebelling against it. While Lena has to deal with her own dilemmas, personal and resistance-related, Hana is also having problems when she finds that her life is not completely hunky-dory, as the government promised. Requiem brings things to a stunning conclusion and completes Lena's journey which began in Delirium.

With each successive book, Oliver has given us more character development and more action. Lena has gone from a girl who did as she was told to one that has the power to overthrow the government. This is a beautiful end to the series told in Lauren Oliver's flowing prose.

Lauren Oliver, whose real name is Laura Schechter, was born in Queens, New York and grew up in Westchester. Her parents were literature professors who encouraged her to be creative from an early age. She earned her Bachelor's in Literature and Philosophy from the University of Chicago and went on to do a Master's of Fine Arts in Creative Writing from New York University. She worked at Random House before turning to writing full-time. A movie based on her first book, Before I Fall, is upcoming. Requiem is part of a dystopian trilogy consisting of Delirium, Pandemonium and Requiem. Lauren Oliver lives in Brooklyn with her fiancé.

The third and final book in Lauren Oliver’s remarkable New York Times bestselling trilogy about forbidden love, revolution, and the power to choose.

Now an active member of the resistance, Lena has transformed. The nascent rebellion has ignited into an all-out revolution, and Lena is at the center of the fight. After rescuing Julian from a death sentence, Lena and her friends fled to the Wilds. But the Wilds are no longer a safe haven. Pockets of rebellion have opened throughout the country, and the government cannot deny the existence of Invalids. Regulators infiltrate the borderlands to stamp out the rebels.

As Lena navigates the increasingly dangerous terrain of the Wilds, her best friend, Hana, lives a safe, loveless life in Portland as the fiancée of the young mayor. Requiem is told from both Lena’s and Hana’s points of view. They live side by side in a world that divides them until, at last, their stories converge. Download and start listening now!


Quotes & Awards

  • “I must say that I hate to read the end of a book series…and I definitely feel that way about Requiem. I just didn’t want it to end…Fast-paced and exciting, I loved the approach at reading from two points of view and the way both Lena and Hana’s voices were so different…Most of all I loved the little surprises that popped up every few chapters, that I never would have thought of, that made the storyline so exciting.”

    Guardian (London)

  • “It has been a long time since a book has had such an impact on me as Lauren Oliver’s Delirium did…As Delirium swept me off my feet, and Pandemonium raised so many questions, Requiem sucked me in from page one…The beautiful metaphors and similes are abundant in Requiem—Oliver has a way of writing about love that makes you sigh out loud, clutch your heart, and do other things that boys think girls do when they fall head over heels for someone…Save Oliver’s Delirium concluder for a quiet weekend—you’ll need one day to give it your wholehearted attention, and another to grieve its passing.”


  • “Is there a theme more perfect for YA readers than choosing what you want from life rather than being told?”


  • “Before starting, readers should turn off their cellphones and wipe their schedules clean, because once they open the book, they won’t be able to stop. A dystopian tour de force.”

    Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

  • A 2013 Boston Globe Book of the Year for Best Young Adult Book
  • A Publishers Weekly bestseller
  • Selected for the 2013 Kids' Indie Next List
  • A USA Today bestseller
