Before scientists found the cure, people thought love was a good thing. They didn’t understand that once love -- the deliria -- blooms in your blood, there is no escaping its hold. Things are different now. Scientists are able to eradicate love, and the governments demands that all citizens receive the cure upon turning eighteen. Lena Holoway has always looked forward to the day when she’ll be cured. A life without love is a life without pain: safe, measured, predictable, and happy.

But with ninety-five days left until her treatment, Lena does the unthinkable: She falls in love

I just finished Delirium the other day - I really enjoyed it, even though it was one of those new types of YA dystopia where I just couldn't see how the author thought it was ever remotely possible of happening. (Maybe my understanding of dystopia is wrong but I thought it was meant to take something from today's society to an extreme to throw a bit of thought-provoking social commentary its way?).

Anyway, all that aside, I thought the prose was beautiful, it had some clever ideas - like the excerpts from propaganda material at the start of the chapters - and a very exciting ending. I now have it on my 'Series to follow' shelf. :)
