Delirium by Lauren Oliver Review

Delirium by Lauren Oliver
Lena was counting down the days until she could get the cure for the “disease.” Love was considered a disease called Deliria, and the government eradicated it with a procedure they created.  Lena believed that Deliria was bad and couldn’t wait for her birthday so she would be safe, but, before she could get the cure, the unimaginable happened:  she fell in love, which changed everything.

I have the Deliria; I loved this book.  I can’t imagine a world without love. I’m a hopeless romantic, so that seems unthinkable. For a book about the nonexistence of love, it was a beautiful, heartbreaking love story.  The author’s words touched my heart and had me holding onto each word like a treasure wanting more.

I was easily pulled into the story. It was an especially connective read for me when I discovered it was set in Portland, Maine. I live in the Portland area, and I know it very well. I recognized most of the streets that were in the story and could picture the scene, which was pretty fascinating. I’ve never read a book where I’ve known the area that it was set in, especially a specific spot. I’m very curious about why the author chose Portland, Maine. I really enjoyed reading about a dystopian version of Portland.
