Delirium by Lauren Oliver

There was a time when love was the most important thing in the world. People would go to the end of the earth to find it. They would tell lies for it. Even kill for it. Then, at last, they found the cure. Now, everything is different. Scientists are able to eradicate love, and the government demands that all citizens receive the cure upon turning eighteen. Lena Haloway 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 then, with only ninety-five days left until her treatment, Lena does the unthinkable...

I like this book and it was interesting to read about a world where love is a disease and has to be cured at the age of 18. Until then girls and boys are kept as separate as possible and are not allowed to congregate at all. There is not a happy ending to this book and it ends in a cliffhanger. I will at some point read the other two books in the series and maybe also the two short stories as they are about characters it would be nice to know more about.

This book qualifies for:
100 books in a year Reading Challenge 2012,
