Delirium (Delirium Trilogy 1)

‘A dystopian Romeo and Juliet story that deserves to be as massive as TwilightStylist

They say that the cure for love will make me happy and safe forever. And I’ve always believed them. Until now.

There was a time when love was the most important thing in the world. People would go to the end of the earth to find it. They would tell lies for it. Even kill for it.

But now love has been declared a dangerous disease.

Everyone who turns eighteen must be immunised with a procedure called the Cure. Lena Haloway is looking forward to being able to live the safe, predictable life the government claims the cure will bring. But meeting Alex, an enigmatic boy from the Wilds, might just make her question everything she’s been raised to believe.

‘One of the most addictive books we’ve come across in ages . . . from one of the most exciting writers around’ Heat

Reviews

In the same mode as Suzanne Collins in her Hunger Games trilogy, Oliver, too, posits a feisty, physically able heroine, giving as good as she gets, in a fast-paced YA thriller: this trend is a welcome one
<i>Independent on Sunday</i> on PANDEMONIUM
We're big fans of Lauren Oliver and this is the emotionally charged follow-up to last year's futuristic love story DELIRIUM. With echoes of Brave New World, we catch up with young heroine Lena as she attempts to survive in the dangerous Wilds . . . Now we just have to wait for the final episode in the trilogy.
<i>Bella</i> on PANDEMONIUM
Fast paced and consistently poignant, this tale quickly becomes hypnotically addictive ... A thoughtful, exciting and moving story that reminds us just how important love is. Devour it, then go and give all your friends a big hug.
Heat
Crackling with tension, Lauren Oliver's follow up to DELIRIUM is as whip smart and addictive as her dystopian debut.
<i>Marie Claire</i>
Amazing, unputdownable!
Grazia
A dystopian Romeo and Juliet story that deserves to be as massive as Twilight.

The new Hunger Games . . . We loved the first two books, and spring sees the publication of the final instalment . . . With a movie trilogy in the pipeline too, you'd better get reading!
<i>Cosmopolitan</i> on REQUIEM
Lena Haloway's journey will have readers breathlessly turning the pages . . . A dystopian tour de force.
