Book Review: Delirium

Book title: Delirium

Author: Lauren Oliver

Genre: YA, Dystopia, Fiction


“They say that the cure for love will make me happy and safe forever. And I’ve always believed them.

Until now.

Now everything has changed. Now, I’d rather be infected with love for the tiniest silver of a second than live a hundred years suffocated by a lie.”

There was a time when love was the most important thing in the world. People would go to the end of the earth to find it. They would tell lies for it. Even kill for it.

Then, at last, they have found a cure.


This book was one of the few that caused the tears to cascade down my cheeks. Of course when you hold the title “Most Heartless” this is somewhat of a big deal. The name “Lauren Oliver” has been added to my list of authors whose books have really changed something within me. Oliver’s writing style captivates the reader, provoking her thoughts, and unleashing her imagination.

The beginning of “Delirium” is kind of slow paced, mostly background information, but trust me when I say it’s worth it, it definitely not your typical disutopian novel. So we’re deleting ‘Love’ from the equation of life. After all, it is what’s holding us back, isn’t it?

A world without ‘Love’, is it really worth living?

Think you could survive without love? Step up to the challenge and read the book……

  1. *thumbs up* one of the best books I read! I’ve read all Lauren Oliver’s books (waiting for the new ones now) and truly her writing captivates readers. Even her books for children is fascinating! I do, also, recommend Delirium and her other books.
