Book Review: Delirium

Delirium, Lauren Oliver, Dark Fantasy, 4.08 stars, Delirium (Delirium, #1)

"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's family has a scandal filled past. Her mother was infected with the most deadly disease of all. Love. So was her sister, Rachel, but Rachel never committed suicide. The procedure worked. It never did for Lena's mom. Her father died when she was a baby, so she must live with her power-conserving aunt, Carol. All adults MUST have the procedure, or else. Lena can't wait for her's. The nasty looks won't effect her anymore. She'll be calm and happy.

95 days

94 days

93 days

Lena counts down, waiting. She will marry Brian Scharff when she is out of college, have two or three kids, live every day calm and cool as a cucumber, all extreme emotions non-existent.

Until, that is, she falls in Love, even though it's against the law.
