First Impression: Delirium by Lauren Oliver

May 2, 2011 § 6 Comments

Hi welcome to “First Impression”. Let me tell you what’s going on today. First I will share the first line of the story and my opinion on the the book that I’ve just started reading: the cover, the story, and will give an advance star rating to the book. Second, you’ll share with me your “First Impression” by linking it back to Coffee N Crackers through the link widget below. Rules: The book must be a book that you just started reading, not a book that you already finished. Easy right? And you can post your First Impression whenever you start reading a new book: no specific day.
Delirium, by Lauren Oliver: Love (deliria) is a disease and scientists have created a cure for it. Lena Holoway has always looked forward to the day when she’ll be cured. A life without love is a life without pain, safe, measured, predictable, and happy. But with ninety five days left until her treatment, Lena does the unthinkable: She falls in love.

 It has been sixty-four years since the president and the Consortium identified love as a disease, and forty-three since the scientists perfected a cure. – 1st line

The Cover: Just a simple cover. But I think it is creative when you can actually see a face of a cute babe through the alphabet of the title and author’s name. But, still I don’t like the background’s color. What is it? light blue? turquoise? whatever.  

The Story: There’re lots of readers out there giving a high credits to this book. But, I don’t have a high expectation in this one though. I know the idea of manifesting love as a disease called “deliria” is quite intriguing.  But isn’t this just another love story? Wait! don’t kill me. That was what I thought before I flipped the cover and  read. But, after reading a few chapters, I think Delirium is going to be a book that I’ll enjoy reading.

Advanced Star Rating: 3 Stars

    @KathyI heard lotsa good thing about Prachett's. I've put him under TBR author. I know BookXcess is selling his books at very good price. Hope to get one or two of 'em there. Thanks for sharing Kathy. =)

  • I love this! It's so great to compare and contrast first impressions with how you feel at the end. I can't wait to see if you stick with the 3 star rating or not.

  • Love as a disease? Gosh, we have a worldwide pandemic don't we? hehe.. sounds really interesting 🙂

    @AlexisYeah, there are times when I think a book can be sucked at first but it turned out pretty impressive once I finished it. We'll see how this one will turn out to!
