Delirium by Lauren Oliver
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I picked this book up on a total whim, just looking for something to keep me entertained while I waited in the parking lot to my husband to finish up at work. It was an intriguing premise (the idea of love as an illness; the systematic “cure,” the arranged loveless marriages) and started off rather predictably (ooh, she met a handsome boy and they fall in looove), and then it got a little more complicated.
It was an easy, fun, breezy read, and then the ending is like a suckerpunch. I loved the ending- it literally took the book from something rather average to incredibly gripping and memorable. I’ll definitely read it again, and I need to get my hands on the sequel!
