I admit to never having read any of Lauren Oliver's stuff before and that I only picked this book on a whim whilst browsing through recommendations on Audible.

Let me begin by saying this: I wish I hadn't experienced this as an audio book. Perhaps, if I have read the book, I would have appreciated all the poetic descriptions that a lot of other readers are raving about.

Now, I love audio books - when they are done right. Unfortunately Sarah Drew (narrator) did not do the book any favours.
I understand she was reading in a "teen voice", but the way she rushed through sentences and gasped through internal dialogue made me think she was hyperventilating.



Drew made Lena sound very very whiny and annoying. Through much of the books, I kept finding myself frustrated at how irritating and weak she was. I see that I'm not alone in thinking this, so perhaps it's not just an audio-book thing.

Like some of the other reviewers, I also found Alex a bit too perfect. But I can still believe that Alex's love with Lena is genuine. His recollection of the first time he saw her and what it represented to him was believable and nicely dodges the insta-love trope (at least for him).

Which is why...

I hate Lena's "love".
To me, it just sounds like she has a bad case of "lust". All that preoccupation with wanting to "kiss him, now!" just makes her sound boy crazy. It makes me wonder whether she would have had the same reaction to any boy who takes their shirt off to make a bandage for her leg. (oh, and did anyone else find it miraculous how a leg that was supposedly mangled by a dog to the point it's missing flesh can heal with just some antiseptic and bandage wrap?)

Ignoring, the teen-angsty love (this is a YA book after all), we then have a world where Big Brother is forever watching, all for the sake of making sure you don't ever fall in love.

Now, some parts of it was quite interesting; I love how they have excerpts from supposedly government approved text at the start of every chapter. This did a lot towards building a believable world for this book. But that's pretty much the only part that did.

You have a country that had closed it's borders because they want to keep a disease, called Love, out. Ok.
You have Regulators to make sure that people don't engage in illegal activities. Still ok.
Then you find out people get thrown into a hole known as the "Crypt" to rot and die because they want to love. Huh?

Let me see if I can elaborate.
In [b:Matched|7735333|Matched (Matched, #1)|Ally Condie|https://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1367706191s/7735333.jpg|9631645] by Ally Condie, the government wants total control over it's citizen. Like Delirium, characters in Matched can only access a pre-approved selection of books, paintings, music etc. Love also is ruled out of society (everyone is matched with a partner by a computer), but only as a by-product of the government controlling every aspect of your life.

In Delirium, it is the other way around; first and foremost, the government wants to rule out love and because of that, they have to control every other aspect of your life to make sure you don't get infected.

In that sense, it feels a little like over-kill to me. Like, really? The reason why the US decides to enforce martial law on it's citizen is not because there was a civil war (Hunger Games) or because they want an obedient and productive population (Matched), but because they want to make sure nobody falls in love?

When I first read the book's blurb, I had found the premise interesting. But the story doesn't seem to pull it off.

Perhaps this gets explained in subsequent books, but I'm not sure whether I want to read it. ( )

I was really hoping to like this book. I've been into the whole dystopian, government-knows-best thing for a while. However, I think my problem with this book was that the dystopia was so severe, the government so all-powerful, that it didn't leave room for anything to happen other than what happened. That is to say, the characters had no choice but to do what they did. I felt that I knew how it would end about half way through. I was mostly right, and I'm not pleased by that.

I enjoyed the maturing of Lena, as she was forced to realize that the world as described and dictated by the government wasn't necessarily the truth. But, again, that was inevitable given the way the story was told.

It was an interesting look at censorship and government control, and maybe would be satisfactory for a teen reader, who is obviously the target audience. It was a bit "been there, done that" for anyone who has read other dystopian novels.

This is the first book in a series, but I won't be reading further. ( )

This book is engrossing! It turned its own pages! I need to go get the second book now!! :) ( )

Well-written YA dystopia. Nothing overly new for the genre but still a solid title. Watching the changes in the main character was interesting and believable. Thankfully no love triangles. Plenty of action and decent characters. ( )
