I don't know, I don't know what to do with my life right now, all I know is that right now I can't rate/review this book. I just can't.

Two days after:

Okay, okay I'm cool. I'm cool. I think I can do this.

And as painful as it is, I'm gonna give this book 2.5 stars.

Well, this book was a major disappointment, it got nothing solved! I kinda wish this book was a joke and that this was like Part 1 of 2 of the final book as the movies are made now.

You know when you wait for like a big ending getting everything solved and see who the heroine choose and if the rebellion wins over or get defeated by the government or something to get a closure? And then get NOTHING! Its really disappointing.

For God's sake, It took me almost 5 days to finish it when I could easily have read it in one night. It just didn't hooked me. I think it lacked a good plot. It was just boring.

I won't say anything else, that's it, I'm done with this book.

Original review before reading:
I need this NOW. I will build a time machine so i can fast forward to feb 2013 so i wouldn't wait much.

'Cause I NEED to know what happens with Lena and Alex and Julian. I hope Lena stays with Alex so she can give me Julian hahaha

Rena Hall I just want her to stay with Alex, period. I loved Alex, but I hated Julian the whole book because I was holding onto the hope that Alex was alive.

Wendy Finally!! Someone who loves Julian as much as I do. Maybe since it's been so long since I've read Delirium, I don't really remember the Lena/Alex romance all that well. I'm sure Lena will end up with Alex, I just hope Julian doesn't get killed off.

Exactly! I just hope the author resolve the love triangle without killing any of the characters, I couldn't bare if Julian gets killed.

ajia I love Alex. i ll feel sorry for julian but lena and alex belong together

Samantha I was disappointed with this book too. I can't stand when the ending isn't really an ending. This one was more like a cliff hanger. An epilogue or a novella would be nice.

Kristen Thank God! Someone agrees that this book was a huge disappointment. I waited years to find out the ending of the trilogy and it doesn't give any closure. I am very pissed! I juster wanted to know who Lena ended up with! :(

Teresa totally agree with you on the whole "i wish this was a fake book 3".

Sara Decker You go to a restuarant craving a big juicy steak and you order a tbone and they bring out a hamburger patty shaped like a steak, this is how I felt about this book. I ordered a steak and I got a hamburger shaped like a steak, not even a good hamburger it was like a Mcdonalds hamburger. I had HUGE expectations for this book and it was the biggest dissapointment ever. Booooooooo :(

Zoe I've finished the book for a long time now, but I STILL can't stop being annoyed by the crappy ending. I feel sorry for both Julian and Alex. Lena deserves neither.
