Book Review: Delirium

Delirium (Delirium, #1)By: Lauren Oliver
Pages: 441
Published: February 1, 2011

They say that the cure for Love will make me happy and safe forever.

And I've always believed them. 

Until now. 

Now everything has changed. 

Now, I'd rather be infected with love for the tiniest sliver of a second than live a hundred years smothered by a lie. 

Lena looks forward to receiving the government-mandated cure that prevents the delirium of love and leads to a safe, predictable, and happy life, until ninety-five days before her eighteenth birthday and her treatment, when she falls in love.

Rating: 5

Review: I love this book. This is my third time reading this book. I am re-reading it now because Pandemonium the final book in this series comes out March 5, 2013 so I am dying. Plus I have no review for this book and I have have to review one of my favourite books.

Love is illegal when you turn eighteen you have the procedure and you no longer love. You you are paired with a husband. I loved Lena. She was afraid of doing anything wrong she didn't want to brake laws, if I grew up the way she did being told love was illegal and that you have to protect yourself from it, I would probably be like her. I wouldn't want to brake laws or do anything wrong. Slowly Lena learns that maybe the way she grew up wasn't right, maybe just maybe love won't always "kill you when you have it, and when you don't"

I love the world that Lauren Oliver created. Ok let me re-phrase this I think it is very creative and unique. I would not want to live in a world without love. I think Lauren Oliver is a fantastic writer. It is descriptive and interesting, I love it.

Well then you have the cliff-hanger. Having read this book three times and having read Pandemonium the cliff-hanger is not that bad since I know what happens. If you don't know what happens after the cliff-hanger, well then it is a horrible cliff-hanger, I died while I was waiting for Pandemonium to come out.

Favourite Quotes:

“You can't be happy unless you're unhappy sometimes".” 

“I'd rather die my way than live yours.” 

“I guess that’s just part of loving people: You have to give things up. Sometimes you even have to give them up.” 

“Love: It will kill you and save you, both” 

“It's so strange how life works: You want something and you wait and wait and feel like it's taking forever to come. Then it happens and it's over and all you want to do is curl back up in that moment before things changed.” 

“Love: a single word, a wispy thing, a word no bigger or longer than an edge. That's what it is: an edge; a razor. It draws up through the center of your life, cutting everything in two. Before and after. The rest of the world falls away on either side.” 

“Hate isn't the most dangerous thing, he’d said. Indifference is.”



  1. I've heard this one being compared to Matched so much. But I bet this one is definitely better because I did not like Matched. XD Oooo, CLIFFHANGER! Well, i'll have to see if I can recognize the cliffhanger and thanks for the cliffhanger in your review. XD

    1. Hmm... I haven't heard it being compared to Matched and I haven't read it so I can't say. I can say that I love this book though. XD
