Where To Find It
Call number: Teen Fiction
Available Copies: Traverwood Teen
Sequel to: Delirium.
After falling in love, Lena and Alex flee their oppressive society where love is outlawed and everyone must receive "the cure"--an operation that makes them immune to the delirium of love--but Lena alone manages to find her way to a community of resistance fighters, and although she is bereft without the boy she loves, her struggles seem to be leading her toward a new love.
Reviews & Summaries
So... finally I have gotten around to what happens next... and I'm a little underwhelmed. It's not bad, by any stretch. I think the problem for me is that she is in a middle ground where she is beginning to find herself, but is still largely at the mercy of forces (and people) outside of her control. Not that there aren't moments when she is making her own decisions, but she is mostly still young and new in the place where she is.
I'm just about to start the third book, and hoping that her leadership will step up even more. But overall, reading these as a 40-something (which, I readily admit, is NOT the primary or intended audience!), I'm looking for a little bit more.
