Utterly, fantastically amazing.
The characters, the descriptions, the plot, everything.
Delirium is set in a dystopian earth, where love is believed to be a disease and you are cured of it when you turn eighteen. Lena can't wait, she's been told that everything will be better, safer, once she's cured. But then, about three months before her procedure, it happens.
Lena falls in love.
Lauren Oliver has flawless descriptions of everything. Some pieces are so poetic I almost gasped out loud. How she writing about love, and life itself, is stunning.
“Now I'd rather be infected with love for the tiniest sliver of a second than live a hundred years smothered by a lie.”
― Lauren Oliver, Delirium
It will inspire you, and leave you thinking. When it finished, I wanted to reread it, just to soak up every word completely.
I love the character Alex. He's cute, charming, caring, sweet, and I wish I knew him. *Sigh*
A must read for fans of The Hunger Games.
And fans of Twilight, too, I guess.
Peace, Love, and Amor-Deliria-Nevrvosa
