Delirium by Lauren Oliver    (Continued)

The moment I read the first sentence of Delirium, I could not put the book down. It had me wanting more with every twist and turn. Throughout the book, I was holding my breath, and my heart would speed up when it started to get really interesting. Reading it from Lena's point of view, I felt as though I was suctioned to her; I was breathing the air she breathed and living the life she lived. She is a strong character I can relate to, and is like me – strong-headed, smart, and fierce – in many ways that surprised me. And Alex had me falling for him right away. His robust personality is another exciting addition that brings the book to life.

The characters experience every emotion that can surround one in a dystopian world.

I literally could not put this book down!  I sat for four hours one saturday in my bed and read it front to back... I can't wait to start the next one!  I'd recommend it to anyone.
