We introduce a linked-cluster based computational approach that allows one to study quantum quenches in lattice systems in the thermodynamic limit. This approach is used to study quenches in one-dimensional lattices. We provide evidence that, in the thermodynamic limit, thermalization occurs in the nonintegrable regime but fails at integrability. A phase transitionlike behavior separates the two regimes.
