Delirium

Lauren Oliver

"One of the strangest things about life is that it will chug on, blind and oblivious, even as your private world-your little carved out sphere-is twisting and morphing, even breaking apart."-Lena

I love you. Remeber. They cannot take it.

ConflictLena is caught between two worlds after she meets Alex, and Invalid living in the city pretending to be a cured.

As Lena begins to realize that her beloved society may not be all that perfect, the date of her procedure creeps closer. For more information, go to: http://www.shmoop.com/delirium-book/summary.html

ResolutionLena and Alex decide to run away into the WIlds together just before Lena's cure. On their first attempt, Lena gets caught and Alex gets away. Her family decides to moe her procedure up. Meanwhile, Hana is feeling guilty for giving the regulators their location, and assists Lena in getting a message to Alex. Alex comes for Lena, and together they make it to the fence, but as Lena drops down on the other side of the fence, Alex is still on the other side with a gunshot wound. He is taken away and is assumed to be dead. For more information, go to: http://www.shmoop.com/delirium-book/summary.html

At the end of the book, Lena was broken when Alex died. I think it especially hard for her because he died getting her out of the city.

This represents Lena andAlex's relationship.

ThemeThe theme of this book is a lot about a government that thinks its doing the right thing, but through a different perspective, is actually very defective. Love is a disease, and the main character, Lena catches it. There is a lot of loyaty to family and friends, and there is also kind of a realization in Lena that not the cureds she knows are actually cured.

I really liked this book because Lena grows and matures a lot throught the book. I really liked how Alex was able to make her see what was really going on, and that Hana wasn't super-selfish.
