Delirium (Delirium Series #1)

Delirium - Lauren Oliver I loved the premise behind this book. Love is now seen as a horrible disease of which causes people to become sick, delusional, and violent. Fortunately, or so they think, everyone is given the cure to love around the time they turn 18. This book follows Lena as she nears her 18th birthday, the date in which she is scheduled to receive the cure. After spending years looking forward to getting the cure the closer she gets to her eighteenth birthday the more she dreads receiving the cure. She dreads it because she has finally found the one thing that is forbidden, love.I am slowly but surely becoming a fan of the dystopian genre. While this was a dystopian book it seemed to me to be mostly a love story. I loved the relationship between Alex and Lena. Whenever Lena was around Alex she would grow as a person and that really enhanced the story. It surprised me that I really enjoyed the ending. It made me sad, but I felt like it was a great way for this book to end. I can't wait to read the next book in the series.
