Audible Editor Reviews

Editors Select, March 2013 - One perk of being an Audible Editor is that I am often lucky enough to get my hands on an early copy of a much-coveted book. This was the case with Requiem – the final book in Lauren Oliver’s marvelous dystopian trilogy. And the conclusion was as brilliant as the first two books. Young Adult literature is experiencing a real renaissance right now and I’ve been reading and listening to a lot of it, but this series beats out all the others, in my opinion. Oliver’s world is creepily compelling and utterly unique, and the narration is top-notch. Even though I’ve already read Requiem I’ll be listening to it as soon as I can: Sarah Drew rivals Emma Galvin as today’s best YA voice. —Emily, Audible Editor

Publisher's Summary

This exciting finale to Lauren Olive's New York Times best-selling Delirium trilogy is a riveting blend of nonstop action and forbidden romance in a dystopian United States.

Now an active member of the resistance, Lena has transformed. The nascent rebellion that was underway in Pandemonium has ignited into an all-out revolution in Requiem, 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 and Hana's points of view. They live side by side in a world that divides them until, at last, their stories converge.

With lyrical writing, Lauren Oliver seamlessly interweaves the peril that Lena faces with the inner tumult she experiences after the reappearance of her first love, Alex, the boy she thought was dead. Sophisticated and wide-ranging, Requiem brings the Delirium trilogy to a thrilling conclusion.

    "That was really the ending!!??????"

    I can't believe that is the way the story ends!!! The beginning of the book had soooo much potential to be a completely awesome story but the ending left a lot to be desired....

    "I have such mixed feelings about this one"
    Any additional comments?

    I loved the first two books of this trilogy, and I loved Sarah Drew's performance in both of them. Concerning book three, I have mixed feelings. The story was not as good as the other two, and as other reviewers said, it felt incomplete at the end. It's called a trilogy, but I'm guessing there will be more. As to Sarah Drew's performance, I was a little disappointed. Her talent in performing was as great as ever. I gave her rave reviews for her performances in the other books, expressing my feeling that she was sensational. However, in this one, much of the time she sounded as if she was speaking with a mouthful of spit. I could almost see it spraying as she spoke. I never noticed that in the other books, so maybe it was the recording rather than her. Or maybe I just didn't notice in the earlier books. In any case, it was quite distracting. Having said all that, I would still buy other books by this author or performed by this narrator.

    "Fabulous book to conclude the trilogy"

    THE GOOD :This book advances the story and keeps you on edge. There is a wonderful amount of character development for established and newly introduced characters. The creativity that Lauren Oliver brings to the story is one that is so needed for the YA genre.

    THE BAD: I was wildly disappointed with the lack of description of the love between Julian and Lena. We are told that they care for one another, but I would have preferred to feeeeeeeeeeel the love, the way that it was manifested in Pandemonium. While it was easy to predict whom Lena would choose in this love triangle she had with Alex and Julian, I think the reader/listener should have known the strength of love Lena felt for each of these young men. Instead, Lenas emotional struggle was only detailed when outlining her feelings for Alex. It was not adequately mentioned, described, explained, or dialogued as well for Julian.

    THE UGLY: Not gonna' lie y'all, I cried, HARD at one scene towards the end of the book. I actually had to stop the audio and collect myself. Sarah Drew narrates Requiem better than any of her previous 3 books for L. Oliver. I think Drew's performance style aided in my ugly cry. I have previously criticized her narration. Can't do it for this book. She is magnificent. I wish all audiobook performers were this good

    OVERALL: Really great YA trilogy. Would have loved a little bit more intimacy as that was a major component of what the characters were fighting for. But still a great book.

    "Loved the series"

    There were only 2 problems I had with it--- the ending- I wanted more resolution- and the narrator did something that drove me crazy- for the whole forst book she called the best friend Hannah the way Americans pronounce it with a short a sound like in the word can- then for book 2 and three she pronounces it like she's Swedish or something with a short o sound instead like it's honnah instead of Hannah- and it was the same narrator!

    "They just get better and better."

    When originally starting the series I thought I knew exactly want would happen. But this book and the whole series had me mind blown. I love it all. The only thing is I was hoping for a more complete ending. Something like 20 years later at the end. But maybe that would be a little unrealistic. Anywho it was awesome and highly recommend. Also the reader did a great job. More acting that a movie for sure.

    "Outstanding work:)"

    The performance of Sarah Drew as acting with this really energetic tome from the book set the science for me.
    Ps if you don't agree with me I'm totally cool with that because every body has the unions on a a book .
    Totally want another book.

    "not my favorite in the series"

    This was not my favorite book in the series (mostly because I was annoyed with Lena's indecisiveness and the cliché love triangle). overall loved the series though! sad that it is over! Absolutely loved Sarah Drew's narration of all the books!
