[#8] Book Review: Delirium by Lauren Oliver

(Delirium #1)

Delirium Book Cover


Before scientists found the cure, people thought love was a good thing.

They didn’t understand that once love -- the deliria -- blooms in your blood, there is no escaping its hold. Things are different now. Scientists are able to eradicate love, and the government demands that all citizens receive the cure upon turning eighteen. Lena Holoway has always looked forward to the day when she’ll be cured. A life without love is a life without pain: safe, measured, predictable, and happy.

But with ninety-five days left until her treatment, Lena does the unthinkable: She falls in love.


Delirium… I don’t like it. This is going to be a short review.

The story talks about love being some kind of diseased. It is a dystopian novel that’s not very successful if you’ll ask me. It is boring. It taken 3 days for me to finish this one, considering that I skipped some parts. The characters: everyone is weird. The plot: nothing exciting and new. 

All in all, I don’t like it and I’m not planning to read the next book.


  1. I liked Delirium, but your review sums up my thoughts on the second book almost perfectly. I don't think I'll be finishing this series either!

    1. Good to know that I'm not the only one^^
