Delirium by Lauren Oliver is the first book in the Delirium series.

In an alternate United States, love has been declared a dangerous disease, and the government forces everyone who reaches eighteen to have a procedure called the Cure. Living with her aunt, uncle, and cousins in Portland, Maine, Lena Haloway is very much looking forward to being cured and living a safe, predictable life. She watched love destroy her mother and isn’t about to make the same mistake.

But with ninety-five days left until her treatment, Lena meets enigmatic Alex, a boy from the Wilds who lives under the government’s radar. What will happen if they do the unthinkable and fall in love?

Delirium is a love story where the whole concept of love is classified as a disease. It’s a unique plot line to say the least.

When you read this book the one thing you will notice is just how well she writes. This however doesn’t mean the entire book is perfect. Lauren Oliver has a tenancy to over describe things.

A normal person when telling you that someone dropped a tennis ball and then bent down to pick it up, wouldn’t spend three pages describing the entire thing that I just summed up in less than a single line.

One odd thing I will say about this book, well more so later on in the series is that I never expected the relationship with her best friend to take the turn that it did. I can honestly say I never seen that coming (in regards to her story line).

I would say this was a good read that was slow at times but still overall a rather enjoyable book with a unique story. With so many books focusing on witches, werewolves and vampires, it’s not to have a story that takes us in a different direction.

One thing I noticed was how everyone was raving about her best friend. Right away I didn’t like her — Even more so in the next book. I guess it was just me because others even released a book dedicated to Hana. That was one I didn’t read. I honestly couldn’t care less about Hana’s story. She’s a bitch. But I guess that’s just me. 😛
