Delirium (Delirium Series #1)

Delirium - Lauren Oliver In a word: Yes. Yes to everything about this book. Yes to the characters, to the premise, to the world, to the story. Delirium just blew me away. The best part about this book is that while it is a “Love story”, per say, it is not just a love story, at least not a romantic one. It’s Lena’s romantic interest that finally pushes her to see that she wants love, but throughout the book we see what happens when love is taken away, not just in romantic relationships but in friendships and families as well. The writing is beautiful, but I also really loved this book because it’s written in a way that assumes some intelligence from the reader. Aspects such as the family relationships aren’t completely spelled out, but they are insinuated. I love world-building, and it’s here, but in bits and pieces through out the book, which in my opinion, contributes to a much stronger book by the last page.Review originally posted on my blog at Book.Blog.Bake.
