This first book in Lauren Oliver's Delirium trilogy has everything you could ever want: a dystopian society, a huge conflict, and of course, a love story.— Lauren

“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.”

They say that the cure for Love will make me happy and safe forever. And I've always believed them. Until now. Now everything has changed. Now, I'd rather be infected with love for the tiniest sliver of a second than live a hundred years smothered by a lie.
