I downloaded this after the coming down from the Divergent series, and it just wasn't what I thought it would be. The story was too slow for me and didn't have much of a climax. Though I finished, I'm just not interested in continuing in the series.
I think the idea of love as a disease that must be eradicated from the human populous is fantastically creative! And Delirium was definitely an enjoyable, easy listen. However, I found it watered down. The relationships between characters weren't fully fleshed out (particularly the love relationship). Also twas a bit predictable, and I can't say I felt ultimately moved by the book's end. Still, it hooked me enough to listen to the second book. I'd say it's def worth the credit for people who like a semi-apocalyptic tale.
Sarah was a passionate performer and I felt she gave it her all.
Introduces a new concept..Makes you think how your life would change if you would do the procidure. Can you imagine not being able to love your child?!
Credit well spent..but a little bit too much romance for me
Unique love story with an gripping subplot.
I was unable to put the book down. I wanted to know what was going to happen next.
I have no words to describe how gorgeously beautiful and heartbreakingly touching this book is. Sarah Drew puts a world of emotion into her reading. And the words that Lauren Oliver weave are so breathtaking that I cried and laughed and ached and loved. 'I love you. I LOVE you. I love YOU...' so simple this sentiment and yet so very powerful. If this book were a poem it would be Sonnet XVII by Pablo Neruda. And if it had a song at the closing credits it would be Amongster by Polica. I reccomend listening to this book with every fibre of my being. You'll not regret it.
Not sure...I like a grabber like Night Reign.. It was just not for me. but I am sure there is someone out there that would love to hear.

Not a ear grabber
Firearms instructor with a passion for great listens.
The ending of the book literally gave me chills. This is one that has stuck with me and I consider to be one of my favorite listens this year.
For those who found the characters of "Matched" flat, but liked the plot, this is the perfect alternative. "Delirium" is a great dystopic romance.
This book was way too much insight into one annoying girls inner dialogue. I hated how whiney and dramatic she was and while I love the actress that narrates this book when she is acting on TV, I couldn't handle her voice on audiobook. This book is slow and tries to hard to be poetic about an inner awakening when the character herself has little depth. Not a fan.
