Review: Delirium by Lauren Oliver

9:34 PM


Goodreads Review:
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 government 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.

My Review:

þ Mysterious, charming, adorable boy
þ   Forbidden love 
þ Dystopian world
þ Cliffhanger ending

    Lauren Oliver is really smart to have taken something so important in today's world, like love, and make it illegal in a future world.  It's kind of like Brave New World in the sense that love is not desirable and people are sort of like robots, without emotion.  Read the rest of my review here
