Review: Delirium by Lauren Oliver
(Click here for the synopsis)
Delirium is one of the most beautiful novels I've EVER read. It's so magnificently heart-wrenching that I just wanted to cry out with sadness and love. Lauren Oliver will take you to a world where love does not exist and the world is set by boundaries. Delirium is easily my most favorite novel. As I was reading it I could help but get goosebumps. Delirium will rock you to your very core and leave you breathless but as you try to stop for a breath you end up feeling breathless once again. Lena, at the start, wasn't exactly one of my most favorable characters. She was weak, scarred and afraid. But Hana, her best friend, was someone I grew fond of. She was the exact opposite of Lena. One of the things I did like about Lena is that she had a past, the kind of past that haunts you. And then there was Alex, am amazing guy who can't seem to stay away from Lena and vice versa. What I love about this story is that when you think the good part ends you end up being shocked that you are in fact wrong. That there's always a twist and turn no matter where you go. Delirium is an amazing novel filled with tragedies, fear and love. Delirium is in fact a swoon-worthy novel. I cried so much while I was reading this. Like waterfalls...
5 OUT OF 5 STARS (If I could give it more I would.)
