Delirium Review

Calling everyone!  The whole purpose of my blog is for people to get something out of books.  That's why it's called Reading Inspires.  This book is amazing.  It's spoken to me in a way that Narnia and The Outsiders has.  Bloggers:  Tweet, Post, do giveaways whatever it takes.  This book needs to get out there.  It needs to be known.  I've tried to make other people see the amazing things in books before, but Narnia is too "old", and Mockingjay is too "sad".  I think that this is a book that everyone can enjoy and maybe, just maybe, learn from.
Delirium by Lauren Oliver
Publisher: Harper
Pages: 441
Genre: Dystopia
From: Barnes and Noble

Synopsis: Ninety-five days, and then I'll be safe. I wonder whether the procedure will hurt. I want to get it over with. It's hard to be patient. It's hard not to be afraid while I'm still uncured, though so far the deliria hasn't touched me yet. Still, I worry. They say that in the old days, love drove people to madness. The deadliest of all deadly things: It kills you both when you have it and when you don't. From Barnes&Noble.com

"You can build walls all the way to the sky and I will find a way to fly above them.  You can try to pin me down with a hundred thousand arms, but I will find a way to resist."

         In this world love is banned.  It's a disease that people fear.  Think about it, Would the world be a better place if people didn't feel?
         Amazing, simply amazing.  Everything about Delirium spoke to me in a volume that even after books like Matched and Across the Universe I'm speechless.  Out of all of them this one really has the makings of becoming a classic (compared to Matched!).  Everything made sense, and although Matched was amazing it was obvious that Lauren Oliver has more experience. 
        I've just made the descion that this is my new favorite book.
        Everything was just outstanding.  It was perfectly pace, the characters were so realtable.  I could see the scenry, smell the smells.  My favorite part was all of the beautiful quotes at the beginning of the chapters and scattered throughtout the book.  I just loved it, and I'm so glad I can say that.
        Americans are so lucky.  We are hated because, yes, we do go where we're not wanted, but people also hate us because while we have our rights.  Think of Libiya they have to fight to be heard while we can just go to a voting booth. 
        The ending has me in tears.  I won't say anything because of spoilers, but God!
