One wonders why more teens don't get infected before their procedures. Must be the segregation -- no school dances, no opportunity for fraternization and all that. But apparently (SPOILERS SWEETIE) there are after-curfew parties happening in deserted neighborhoods. Yet this minor rebellion rarely apparently leads to outright resistance. I'm curious to see where this series goes before I pass too much judgment.
I am completely and utterly amazed by this book, I really loved it! It was such a unique concept. I actually did like Lena, even though she was so weak at first its like such a great character development, from being this weak girl so brainwashed by this horrible society to finally resisting and doing what she wants. I also loved Alex, he was what Lena needed, that little push to as she says "wake up". Now I know I'm a little late to this but after reading this, I saw the pilot for the show and I recommend to anyone who has not read the book, please do not watch the pilot. It pretty much shows the major parts of the book, so it will be a big spoiler if you do watch it before you read. I am really upset they aren't going to continue with the show because I have just became a BIG fan of the Delirium series and I cannot wait to read the rest of the books! That ending though... I could've done without. I'm just here, hoping for the possibility that it just isn't how its left off. Please pick this book up, its AMAZING.
