genre: dystopian, YA
Delirium had everything that should have made it a five star book: amazing writing style, interesting plot. So why did I give it 2 stars? I finished 4 or 5 books since starting Delirium and at the romantic high point, I didn’t cry (the end of the world is near).
Synopsis from Goodreads
Ninety-five days, and then I’ll be safe.
I wonder whether the procedure will hurt.
I want to get it over with.
It’s hard to be patient.
It’s hard not to be afraid while I’m still uncured, though so far the deliria hasn’t touched me yet.
Still, I worry.
They say that in the old days, love drove people to madness.
The deadliest of all deadly things: It kills you both when you have it and when you don’t.
