Requiem - Lauren Oliver

The final book in the Delirium trilogy.
As escapees from a regime which operates on teenagers to remove the erratic 'love' gland-the cause of strife and war down the ages - Alex & Lena join forces with other escapees. Outside of the city there is no easy availability of food and shelter and survival is not definite.
Inside the city is no guarantee either, a class system is still evident and there are rumbles of overall social discontent.
As a young adult book this is an excellent read. It's not really a stand alone, so much of it relates back to the previous two without explanation.
A very good series to get teenagers interested in reading.
Recommended.

Publisher - Hodder & Stoughton
