The transformation of Lena's character from start to finish is amazing, and Oliver's words really tug at your heartstrings. Highly recommended.
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.
'A beautifully written and wonderfully addictive book that fans of Margaret Atwood will devour.'
'A dystopian Romeo and Juliet . . . Lauren Oliver's futuristic vision, set in an alternate but recognisable America, is chillingly realised.'
Lauren Oliver's Before I Fall was one of Bella's favourite books of last year and this follow-up doesn't disappoint.
'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.'
Delirium tugged at my heartstrings with its heartbreaking final scenes, but nothing could have prepared me for the shocking conclusion to Hana. The perfect accompaniment to Delirium, especially for readers who were fans of Hana, this story may be short in length, but it packs an almighty punch, and is definitely worth checking out!
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.
Praise for Delirium
'I didn't leave my bedroom all weekend after I picked up this Margaret Atwood meets Twilight novel. Ah-ma-zing.'
A dystopian Romeo and Juliet story that deserves to be as massive as Twilight.
Hugely compelling and addictive, this has massive commercial potential.
An original and fast-moving read from a very talented writer.
