Reviews

'A beautifully written and wonderfully addictive book that fans of Margaret Atwood will devour.'
<i>Best</i> on <i>Delirium</i>
The transformation of Lena's character from start to finish is amazing, and Oliver's words really tug at your heartstrings. Highly recommended.
<i>Press Association</i>
An original and fast-moving read from a very talented writer.
<i>Sun</i> on <i>Delirium</i>
A dystopian Romeo and Juliet story that deserves to be as massive as Twilight.
<i>Stylist</i> on <i>Delirium</i>
'A dystopian Romeo and Juliet . . . Lauren Oliver's futuristic vision, set in an alternate but recognisable America, is chillingly realised.'
<i>Marie Claire</i> on <i>Delirium</i>
Prepare to pull a sickie and be rooted to your chair with one of the most addictive books we've come across in ages . . . A recklessly romantic, smart, poignant and tense read from one of the most exciting writers around . . . Clever, moving and incredibly addictive.
<i>Heat</i> on <i>Delirium</i>
Praise for Delirium
:
This has to be one of the most original fiction concepts for a long time... Brilliantly constructed . . . will leave you with your heart in your mouth . . . It will stir up the emotions that remind you why you bother with love at all.
<i>News of the World</i> on <i>Delirium</i>
Lauren Oliver's Before I Fall was one of Bella's favourite books of last year and this follow-up doesn't disappoint.
<i>Bella</i> on <i>Delirium</i>
'Lauren Oliver is the rising star of young adult fiction . . . [Delirium] deftly conjures up a recognisably dystopian parallel to our own world, as convincingly terrifying as the North America of Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale.'
<i>The Sunday Times </i> on <i>Delirium</i>
Hugely compelling and addictive, this has massive commercial potential.
Bookseller's Choice, <i>The Bookseller</i> on <i>Delirium</i>
'I didn't leave my bedroom all weekend after I picked up this Margaret Atwood meets Twilight novel. Ah-ma-zing.'
<i>Grazia</i> on <i>Delirium</i>
'I was so excited to hear that Annabel was having a short story of her own, that we would get to meet this woman, this mother that was so full of love in a world that forbids it. And now I've read it, I got a lot more from the story than I expected . . . ANNABEL is a perfect addition to the Delirium series, and a brilliant, beautiful story of the strength of a woman who loves.'
