  1. For me, that plot sounds very contrived.

    I think I’ve seen it on Star Trek once, and in a few movies as well. I supposed if they’ve put a new spin on it, it could be okay, but the idea itself jut isn’t my cup of tea.

    If you loved it that much, it’s probably big kudos to the authors writing style.

  2. Have you ever read Anthem by Ayn Rand? It will probably only take you a few hours to read because it’s more of a novella, but it’s very much like the book you described. I’ve also seen a similar plot in a movie called Equilibrium, which I highly recommend :)
    Great book review!

  3. Hopping over from the tag on Angela Quarles blog:) Just added this book to my Kindle from the library (well, there’s a waiting list . . . . thanks for the recommendation!)

  4. Okay, you’ve just convinced me. One of my critique partners LOVES Lauren Oliver so I read ‘Before I Fall’ which I found to be excellent. She also loves Delirium, of course, but between the two of you talking it up, now I want to read it. Thank you!
