Staff Reviews


If you enjoy dystopian teen stories, you will enjoy the Delirium trilogy. In the first book of the series, Lauren Oliver introduces us to Lena, an 18 year old girl getting ready for her government-mandated procedure to cure her from the disease of love. Knowing what love did to her mother, she has been looking forward to her procedure for years. But when she meets someone from the Wilds - a jurisdiction thought to have been destroyed years prior, that is now home to those who refuse the government’s “treatment” - she is forced to rethink her stance on love.

“Not just another dystopian novel, Delirium presents a world where love is looked at as a disease and citizens are subjected to a procedure to relieve them of its burden at age 18. But if you can't live with love, is it really worth it to live without it? This is a very touching and thought-provoking novel.”
— Vicki Erwin, Main Street Books, St.Charles, MO

Description


The first book in Lauren Oliver's remarkable New York Times bestselling trilogy about forbidden love, revolution, and the power to choose.

In an alternate United States, love has been declared a dangerous disease, and the government forces everyone who reaches eighteen to have a procedure called the Cure. Living with her aunt, uncle, and cousins in Portland, Maine, Lena Haloway is very much looking forward to being cured and living a safe, predictable life. She watched love destroy her mother and isn't about to make the same mistake.

With ninety-five days left until her treatment, Lena meets enigmatic Alex, a boy from the Wilds who lives under the government's radar. What will happen if they do the unthinkable and fall in love?
