Delirium by Lauren Oliver

Delirium (Delirium, #1)
Title: Delirium
Author: Lauren Oliver
Pages: 441
Publication Date: Feb. 1st, 2011

Back Cover:  Before scientists found the cure, people thought love was a good thing. They didn’t understand that once love -- the deliria -- blooms in your blood, there is no escaping its hold. Things are different now. Scientists are able to eradicate love, and the governments demands that all citizens receive the cure upon turning eighteen. Lena Holoway has always looked forward to the day when she’ll be cured. A life without love is a life without pain: safe, measured, predictable, and happy.

But with ninety-five days left until her treatment, Lena does the unthinkable: She falls in love.

First Lines: It has been sixty-four years since the president and the Consortium identified love as a disease, and forty-three since the scientists perfected a cure.

My Thoughts: Lauren Oliver has constructed a beautiful tale of love, loss and teenage drama. The idea of love being a disease is completely original and it works fantastically in this book. The characters that the author has created are extremely life-like and are not all stereotypes, which makes this book even more interesting because you have to read the whole book to identify their personalities properly.

Lena is a girl who just goes with the flow, but soon learns that she has to stand up for what she believes in to remain herself and not become the completely rational, robot-like humans who have already been 'cured'.

This is the ultimate story of friendship, love, trust, adult influence and peer pressure. The end is absolutely heart-breaking and leaves the perfect opportunity for an equally stunning sequel.
Rating:  4/5
