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.

    "This can not be the end......"

    The book is filled with the angst of teen love, backstabbing friends, and all out battle. Truly a great read till you get to the endding. Now for the spoiler.....the book ends on a cliff hanger! Part of me is screaming NO NO NO! The other part of me says YES! It leaves me to come up with the ending I want for the people in the book that I have come to care for as if they were my very own friends.

    I however think that it would be a great idea if she did another book ( there is plenty left unsaid in the book for it to happen) Maybe one from Hanna's POV on learning to love after the cure. You do get to see her start this process in Requiem....afterall it had been stated the cure does not work on them all. And I allready know who I want the guy to be for her to fall in love with and I think you will come to the same decision as me once you've read this amazing book!

    "I wish I could add an extra star to Performance!"

    Sarah Drew's narration was sooo good! I don't think I would have connected as much to this series without it. I've listened to many audiobooks and her ability to bring the emotions out of the characters is amazing. I hate a monotone narration or poorly done voices. Her narration had tons of life and she did a great job on both the male and female characters. For me, Sarah Drew's narration of the Delirium series is second only to the narration of The Help and that was done by four people so that says a lot!

    If you have read the first two books then you absolutely must read Requiem. The book was well written and I felt like I lived inside Lena's story. I loved all three of the books, but I felt like the ending was just barely enough. There needed to be a lot more resolution after all of the emotional turmoil this series put me through. It just hinted at how things were going to turn out. There is a brief period of semi-resolution and then the book is over. I didn't hate it. I just wanted more.

    "Could not be more disappointed"
    What disappointed you about Requiem?

    Ok, where do I start on just how horrible this book is. Delirium was good. I loved it, I loved the characters, I loved the relationship between Lena and Alex... Sigh, Alex. What happened at the end was probably the hardest I have ever cried during a book before. And after Alex's potential death, the only reason I picked up Pandemonium is because I had hope that the relationship between Alex and Lena wouldn't have been so perfect just for him to die. I had very high hopes, and a really strong feeling he lived. So I forced myself through Pandemonium, through the ridiculously forced new relationship between Lena and Julian. Which happened way too early after what she just experienced. Ugh. Gross. The second book sucked something major, and once again, I only picked up book 3 because I was right. Alex was alive!!! Though he only got the last 30 seconds of the damn book. So naturally, I just knew her and Alex would end up back together and I had to see Alex get his happily ever after. Requiem was the worst thing that has ever happened to me. Alex was a completely different person. They might have had 3 conversations throughout the whole book, they shared one passionless kiss, and then you don't even find out what happens to anyone!? Does Lena choose Alex? Julian? What happens to ANY of the characters? What happens in the huge battle that's raging on?? I am so dissatisfied -- and since this is the last installment in the trilogy, there is nothing to fix this sense of everything being up in the air. Come on Lauren, serious readers are a very intense and specific creature! They get really into books and they especially get really attached to the characters! They want the characters to get their happy ending but damn, if that isn't possible, then just having some clue as to what happens would be better than leaving us with nothing but unanswered questions!! Ahhhhhhhhh!! Sooooo irritated!!!

    "Great story!"
    Who was your favorite character and why?

    "Favorite"

    I like the way both Hana and Lena had a chance to share their emotions (or lack of) and feelings. They have both changed so much in the last "year" (book time).


    What does Sarah Drew bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    eh - just different.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I always want to listen or read a book in one sitting. ALWAYS.


    Any additional comments?

    I was a little disapointed in the ending. After having all day to think about why - I've come to terms with the end of Hana's story - I think it makes an excellent point. But, I don't think the love triangle was adequately closed. I think a short epiloge just focusing on the love interest would have been nice.

    The first 2 books were great, but I got the feeling that she wasn't sure how to end the story.

    Sarah Drew did a great job going back and forth between the 2 characters, even when I had to stop mid-chapter it was easy tell who I had left off listening too.

    AUDIO FANATIC. I check here first before I read anything! I read: YA dystopia, NA romance, some sci-fi, a bit of fantasy and the odd memoir

    "Wow."
    What made the experience of listening to Requiem the most enjoyable?

    Sarah Drew. She's amazing. She makes the story come alive.


    What other book might you compare Requiem to and why?

    Delirium and Pandemonium, the first two books in the series. There is no comparison I have found for this series; even though there are other dystopian romances out there, none of them have had the emotional charge this one does. I just finished it; I am exhausted.


    Which character – as performed by Sarah Drew – was your favorite?

    I loved Lena, but I also loved Alex. He was so complex. And I loved his voice.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yep. All 10 hours. I couldn't stop listening.


    Any additional comments?

    Get ready to be wrecked by the end. This is a true emotional roller coaster.

    "FANTASTIC STORY! SUPER FANTASTIC NARRATION!"

    I loved all three books and the message they send. I'm sad to see the series end and look forward to future Lauren Oliver books. Sarah Drew is now my favorite narrator, she really brings the characters and emotions alive.

    "My new favorite book, possible author, need more!!"
    If you could sum up Requiem in three words, what would they be?

    A love story harshly like real life. Mending, Comforting.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Requiem?

    The scene when Alex and Lena fight in the woods, before the bear encounter.


    What about Sarah Drew’s performance did you like?

    Her voice is perfect for a young girl, it matches the cover of the book so perfectly. Sarah spoke in the same intonations I would have read it as in my mind. It was the best audio books I have heard so far.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Will they find their way back to each other?

    "Best of the trilogy"
    If you could sum up Requiem in three words, what would they be?

    Feelings, tears, hope.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Good pace most of the time, less silly romance than in the beginning of the series, "Take down the walls!"


    What about Sarah Drew’s performance did you like?

    Everything! In this book, she was given the best material she could hope for and she made it brilliant! She sounds like a very good actress.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I guess I did :) I think I finished it in a day, I was lucky I got to it on a Sunday.


    Any additional comments?

    Well... every narration is an interpretation that changes the way the story and the characters are percieved. I have difficulties reading text, so I only listen, which means I've had to get used to any kind of voice and narration, good or bad, as the only means of getting to the story. Consequently, I'm not picky. But I do appreciate good narrations, and Sarah Drew's interpretation definitely enriched my experience of the book. It's especially in this third volume of the series that she's really perfect! I read reviews from Amazon, of readers of the written text, complaining about the ending. But with Sarah Drew giving me the ending, I was quite satisfied. It might give answers the written text does not? Interpretation? Not sure, but I liked it. There's a wonderful short interview with her at the end, I was sorry it wasn't longer, I loved that, too!

    "Loved This Series"
    Where does Requiem rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I recently started reading Young Adult Dystopian literature. While waiting for the last Divergent book novel I decided to start this Series. Loved it! Sarah Drew is amazing. Only thing I didn't like about this book and series is the ending. But it was entertaining.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Requiem?

    I like the story about Hana and how she was still true to herself. I like the conversation she had with her mom.


    What about Sarah Drew’s performance did you like?

    I like her voices and especially the parts of the stories when she is yelling or imitating the guys. She really brought the characters to life.
