'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.' -- Sunday Times '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.' -- Heat 'A dystopian Romeo and Juliet story that deserves to be as massive as Twilight.' -- Stylist 'A beautifully written and wonderfully addictive book that fans of Margaret Atwood will devour.' -- Best 'Lauren Oliver's Before I Fall was one of Bella's favourite books of last year and this follow-up doesn't disappoint.' -- Bella 'Hugely compelling and addictive, this has massive commercial potential.' -- Bookseller's Choice, The Bookseller '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.' -- News of the World 'A dystopian Romeo and Juliet ... Lauren's Oliver's futuristic vision, set in an alternate but recognisable America, is chillingly realised.' -- Marie Claire

Clever, moving and incredibly addictive.' -- Heat 'I didn't leave my bedroom all weekend after I picked up this Margaret Atwood meets Twilight novel. Ah-ma-zing.' -- Grazia 'An original and fast-moving read from a very talented writer.' -- Sun 'The transformation of Lena's character from start to finish is amazing, and Oliver's words really tug at your heartstrings. Highly recommended.' -- Press Association 'A dystopian Romeo and Juliet story that deserves to be as massive as Twilight.' -- Stylist 'A beautifully written and wonderfully addictive book that fans of Margaret Atwood will devour.' -- Best 'Lauren Oliver's Before I Fall was one of Bella's favourite books of last year and this follow-up doesn't disappoint.' -- Bella 'Hugely compelling and addictive, this has massive commercial potential.' -- Bookseller's Choice, The Bookseller 'This has to be one of the most original fiction concepts for a long time...

Lauren's Oliver's futuristic vision, set in an alternate but recognisable America, is chillingly realised.' -- Marie Claire '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.' -- Daily Mail 'Part The Handmaid's Tale, part Twilight, we're addicted.' -- Fabulous Magazine
