Quick-Fire Review: Delirium By Lauren Oliver

by Lauren Oliver
Paperback: 480 pages
Publisher: HarperCollins; Reprint edition (February 7, 2012)
Language: English
Buy the book: Amazon

Lena Haloway is content in her safe, government-managed society. She feels (mostly) relaxed about the future in which her husband and career will be decided, and looks forward to turning 18, when she’ll be cured of deliria, a.k.a. love. She tries not to think about her mother’s suicide (her last words to Lena were a forbidden “I love you”) or the supposed “Invalid” community made up of the uncured just beyond her Portland, Maine, border. There’s no real point—she believes her government knows how to best protect its people, and should do so at any cost. But 95 days before her cure, Lena meets Alex, a confident and mysterious young man who makes her heart flutter and her skin turn red-hot. As their romance blossoms, Lena begins to doubt the intentions of those in power, and fears that her world will turn gray should she submit to the procedure.

At a Glance: When I found out that ReadingTeen was going to meet Lauren Oliver I just had to read this book. My mom said it was in her favorites and I should read it. So, I read it and it was amazing. And then when I found out that the Delirium TV show was coming out, I got so excited! I really excited to see how Emma Roberts and  Daren Kagasoff act as Lena and Alex!

Action: 
There was only a bit of action not a lot, but that bit of action was really fun. I'd like to see more action in this book, but I heard that Pandemonium had some more action in it, so i'm excited for that.

Romance:
Ooohhh... The romance! I just love all the romance between Lena and Alex, it was just so brilliant!

Heroine:
Lena was probably my favorite character. She was really funny and she had a great character.

Hero:
I absolutely loved Alex, and he was really fun to read about.

Favorite Supporting Character:
I really liked Hana's character she was really funny and i loved how she was so outgoing!

Something I loved:
I loved all the romance and all the different characters.

Something(s) I hated:
I just really wish that there was more action in it, but either than that it was really good, and there really was nothing I didn't like.

Cliffhanger? 
Uh. Yeah. It was a total cliffhanger, like it just stopped in the middle of the book.

Would I recommend it?
Yes, I would recommend it to people who really love romance.

Did my friends like it? 
Yes, they definitely loved these books, and I'm really excited to see how the other books turn out.

Will I buy/keep it?
Yes, I think I would.
