"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 governments demands that all citizens receive the cure upon turning eighteen. Lena Haloway 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."

My Thoughts:
I truly found Delirium to be a heart breaking and heart racing novel. I hope that there is never a cure for love. Because no one should ever be told whom there to be married to and to have a part of their brain taken away. All because in the society in this novel believes love is a disease.
Lena started out as this shy quiet her who did everything she was told and believed everything she was told by the scientists and even her family members. But when she meets Alex and everything has new meanings she risks her life in order to be with him. 

The ending was very heart breaking and I cannot wait for the sequel which doesn't come out until 2012. 

I totally recommend you checking out this novel!! 5/5 stars!!

Hope you enjoyed my review, Ashley
