“Very depressing ending that will rip your heart out and leave you crying yourself to sleep!!!!
“Im on page 128 of the book "Delirium" by Lauren Oliver. So far there are quite a few things that i have learnt about the society such as it is a very controlled environment and rules have to be strictly followed or else consequences can happen. The infer that the main characters motive in the book is to realize the positive meaning of love. This book so far is showing the characters transition to the "good child" who always follows the rules to sneaking out and going against what society is forcing them young ones to do. Through what i read so far i am really starting to enjoy the book and the theme of people against society. I would recommend this book to those who love distopian or controlled society or suspense filled books. ”Ayesha A wrote this review 10 days ago. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful?

“What if love is a deadly virus? What if we're all infected and scientists have found a way to cure people once they turn 18 years old? Would there be resistance? Would you let them cure you or would you resist?
Lena, the main character, has to deal with all these questions. Her mother died of being uncured. Lena was raised by her aunt and uncle who are cured of the deadly virus. She can't wait to be cured, but only a couple months from her cure date EVERYTHING CHANGES.”
In this story Delirium, by Lauren Oliver the book is about how in this world love is a deadly disease that can only be cured from the procedure at the age of 18. Lena, the main character of the story, is looking forward to being cured. Since her mother was never cured and the loss of her through suicide seems to always haunt Lena in her dreams and in reality. This causes her to want the treatment to come faster because she does not want the same fate as her mother did. Another event that has happened so far is during her evaluation day she encountered a boy who winks at her. This comes as a shock to Lena because of the usual segregation of boys and girls. When she encounters Alex again she begins to fell self-conscientious and anxious around him. Although I have not read a lot of this book yet I can predict that Lena is beginning to show affection towards Alex. Since she is having thoughts of self-conscientiousness and anxious around him that she might begin to like him. In addition to, on page 38 she describes Alex with, "His hair is golden brown, like leaves in autumn just as they're turning, and he has bright amber eyes." This to me is foreshadowing Lena liking Alex later on in the book.”
