Delirium (Delirium Trilogy 1)

Delirium (Delirium Trilogy 1)

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

Until now.

Now everything has changed. Now, I’d rather be infected with love for the tiniest sliver of a second than live a hundred years suffocated by a lie.

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.

Then, at last, they found the cure.

The setting for this clever, imaginative novel is a society in which love is treated as a disease... With a pacy, absorbing plot and a cast of engaging characters to revel in, Delirium also raises all manner of talking points: relationships, the role of the family, state intervention, friendship, loyalty, individual freedom. The movie must surely be just around the corner.
<i>Daily Mail</i>
'Finished reading Lauren Oliver's book Delirium. A beautiful read. Can't stop thinking about it.'
Fearne Cotton
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.
This thought-provoking novel, the first in a new trilogy, will have you gripped from start to finish. But be warned: the cliffhanger will leave you desperate for the next instalment.
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>Sunday Times </i>
'Amazing, unputdownable!'
For proper, spellbinding immersion pick up a copy of Delirium.
<i>Herald</i> Summer Reads
A dystopian Romeo and Juliet story that deserves to be as massive as Twilight.
Lauren Oliver's Before I Fall was one of Bella's favourite books of last year and this follow-up doesn't disappoint.
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>
'A dystopian Romeo and Juliet . . . Lauren Oliver's futuristic vision, set in an alternate but recognisable America, is chillingly realised.'
<i>Marie Claire</i>
'Part The Handmaid's Tale, part Twilight, we're addicted.'
<i>Fabulous</i> Magazine
A beautifully written and wonderfully addictive book that fans of Margaret Atwood will devour.
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.
Hugely compelling and addictive, this has massive commercial potential.
