Delirium by Lauren Oliver

Delirium by Lauren Oliver (ARC)
Publication Date: February 1, 2011
Versions: hardcover
Received from: Traveling ARC Tours

Summary (from goodreads):
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 Holway 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.

This is one of those books that you can't stop thinking about after you read it. The different scenes keep roleplaying in my head all day. It was so well written and well worded, everything was just right (all the parts fit together like a puzzle). There were so many problems with the curse deliria (otherwise known as love) in the past, there were so many suicides and deaths, that the scientists decided that love was an illness. And they have found a way to cure everyone when they turn eighteen. Lena is counting down the days until her operation-she can't wait to be cured. But then during her examinations she discovers a boy with golden leaf hair and is drawn to him. He teaches her about everything, and even though it's forbbiden-she hangs out with him. And soon she finds out what their society has really turned into.

This is one of those books that everyone is looking forward to, and it has a right to be that way-this book is amazing. It can easily be compared to The Hunger Games, The Uglies series, and Matched. Event though this book is well over 400 pages, I found myself wishing it wouldn't end.

Will I reread it?
I will have to run out and buy my very own copy when the release date strolls around. I would highly recommend this novel to anyone looking for an outstanding read. I am crossing my fingers for a sequel in the near future.

The more I hear about this book, the more excited I am! This sounds SO amazing, especially since you compared it to Uglies and Hunger Games, which are some of my favorites everrr. I'm really getting into this dystopian thing. They really open the floor for insightful debate. Thank you for the great review!
